Swatches and review: Alanna Renee polishes

Hello ladies~ Today, I have the distinct pleasure of posting about some gorgeous polishes made by Australian indie maker Alanna. Her brand of nail polishes, Alanna Renee, consist of a solid line of glitters which can be used for layering purposes or worn alone. So far, Alanna has released one collection made up of 12 polishes, on top of her original 10 polishes. Did I mention the most recent Magical World collection was inspired by the Harry Potter series? ;)

Enough chit chat though, you're all here for the polish anyway! First up, I have two nail polishes from the Magical World collection.

Fawkes is a fiery red polish filled with gold and red glitter pieces. The bottle I am showing you is actually a re-formulated version of Fawkes. Its predecessor did not have as much gold glitter and was more of a jelly glitter. For the photos, I applied three coats of the nail polish, topped with two coats of top coat. I loved Fawkes so much I wore it for three days! ♥

Golden snitch of course, consists of various gold glitter pieces. The thing I love the most about this glitter bomb though, is the addition of gold circle glitter. How very appropriate for the snitch! And of course, I'm beginning to have this...thing for circle glitter pieces too ;) Below I have three coats of Golden snitch topped with two coats of top coat.

Whilst I love Golden snitch, I knew in my heart that it would clash horribly with my skin tone. However, stay tuned for how I prove I can wear it and have it actually look nice on me... ;)

Milky way is from Alanna's first release of the Alanna Renee polish brand. It is the most beautiful layering glitter, I swear! I love how versatile it looks over different shades of nail polishes and the way it transform the base colour into something so unique and mesmerising...trust me, you really need to own Milky way.

Here it is, layered over Bourjois 1863 Les Theatres.

Do you own any Alanna Renee polishes? Which one do you need to own? ;)

Thanks for reading!
