Miss Ashleigh Swatches & Review!

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

Hello everyone!  Sorry I've been MIA lately, but I have a whole bunch of really awesome polishes to show you from a new-to-me brand, Miss Ashleigh!


I was so excited while I was swatching these.  The majority of the polishes I was sent are totally unique, and the rest are just amazing staples that everyone needs in their collection.



In addition to all of the fun colors, I was also sent Matte Hatter, a matte top coat.  It worked great over each polish I tried, dries fast, and gives a really nice matte finish.  I will add the matte version under each of the swatches below so you can see what it looks like.

Now, I'm just going to get right into the swatches since this will be a very lengthy post!

Tickled Pink is a neon pink holographic polish.  This pink is so awesome.  The formula is perfect in two coats.  The holographic effect is much stronger in person than I was able to capture in photos.  I wish I could've done this one justice!



In the Navy is a shimmery navy blue polish.  It's one of those polishes that just glows from the inside and is dark around the edges.  It's also opaque in one coat (though I did two for the photos).

The Devil Wears Nada is a nude creme-jelly hybrid.  It was so lovely to apply (two coats, not streaky at all), and very flattering on my skin tone.  It's a really great neutral, not too pink or too yellow, just lovely all around.


Lady Bug is a berry-red jelly with big black hexes and some golden shimmer (which sadly did not translate well in my photos).  It's also slightly darker in person, but oh so adorable!  I am wearing two coats plus top coat in the photos below.

Betty Confetti is a white creme with different sizes of rainbow colored glitter and iridescent glitter.  I was surprised at how opaque the white base was; it only required one coat, but I wanted more of the glitter so I used two coats for the photos.

Mardi Gras is a clear based rainbow glitter (basically every color except red).  I love the size of the glitter in this polish; it's packed with big hex glitter, as well as smaller hexes.  It looks amazing over every color, and the glitter was super easy to apply.  I only used one coat for each swatch.  I am obsessed with how Mardi Gras looks matte as well.

And I saved the best for last .. Thermals!

Kryptonite is a green holographic thermal polish.  This one just makes me happy.  It shifts from a gorgeous teal-emerald green to a bright lime green.  I used two coats which was opaque in person, but there is a bit of visible nail line in my photos, so I suppose I could've used a third coat.  The formula was fantastic though!

Cold state



Supernova is an amazing purple to blue holographic glitterbomb thermal polish.  I swatched this one last because I knew I wouldn't be able to remove it when I was finished!  In it's cold state it is a beautiful bright purple, and when it's warm it turns bright blue.  It is also packed with big and small holographic hexes, metallic pink circle glitter, and holographic shimmer.  To die for.  I used two coats for the photos.



Here's a little recap I created for Instagram:



Miss Ashleigh nail polish retails for $14, and there is a really great range of colors and glitters to choose from on missashleigh.com.au!
