Swatches & review: Alanna Renee Bundle of Joy collection

Hello everyone! I have the greatest pleasure in sharing some nail polishes from Australian indie brand Alanna Renee Bundle of Joy collection. The collection consists of three pastel shimmers and two glitters. In addition to the launch of Bundle of Joy, Alanna has also decided to release Lenny, a nail polish she created for What's In-die Box June.


First up though, all Alanna Renee nail polishes now come boxed! I love the light purple packaging which is simple and straight to the point.


Here is It's a girl!, a sweet pastel pink with a soft silver shimmer. Although it's soft, it's still apparent in real life and it's such a pity that the shimmer doesn't show up as much in the photos. This was two coats of It's a girl!.

It's a boy! is the pastel blue equivalent of the polish above. It's a little brighter than I had expected for a pastel blue but I love it all the same. Again, the shimmer decided to play hide and seek for my photos - it is definitely more apparent in real life. Two coats.

Sugar & spice & all things nice is one of the glitters in the collection. It's pretty dense, which I was surprised with, as I expected it to be a layering glitter. I had to really wipe my brush off to layer one coat over It's a boy!. I just love the combination of colours in this glitter mixture - you can never go wrong when there's purple glitter around ♥ ;)

Lenny is a mixture of smaller blue and orange glitters mixed with larger black circle glitter in a milky white base. I actually didn't expect the polish to be too opaque but was surprised with how it looked at two coats, which is what my swatches show. The black glitters were harder to get out and required some fishing. Overall though, I'm impressed with Alanna's interpretation of Lenny from Toy Story - the glitters are really spot on!

The Bundle of Joy collection and Lenny is now available at Alanna Renee's online shop. Each bottle retails for $7.99 or you can purchase the entire collection of 6 bottles for $35.96. Alanna only ships within Australia but fret not international ladies! Check out the stockists page for international sellers.

Are you a fan of pastel shades? Do you like the shimmer in these ones? :)

Thanks for reading!
