Hey guys and gals! Super late post up today, sorry about that! Apparently, I didn't schedule this one when I wrote it up. Oops!
Anyway, I have some lovely swatches of several polishes from Bondi NY. These are all from their new subscription box service (which is awesome, you should totally sign up!) and I just never got around to posting them until now.
Please Note: Products shown were purchased by me for my personal use.
Bondi NY - Uptown Girl
Uptown Girl is a lovely lavender cream. These types of purple are always a favorite of mine, and this one did not disappoint. Super creamy formula, and buttery smooth application. This is one easy coat.
Bondi NY - Teal Magnolia
Teal Magnolia is a bright green leaning teal cream. Again, gorgeous color and perfect formula. Bondi NY really does know how to make an amazing cream polish! One easy smooth coat. This one is a stainer, so go with a good base coat.
Bondi NY - Horny Mistress
Horny Mistress is a cool toned red cream. For a red, this is actually really pretty! You know my relationship with red polishes. But I am glad to have a good solid red in my stash now! Hate the name, tho, sounds like something out of a bad porno flick! Dreadful name aside, it has the same creamy smooth formula. This is also a one coater!
Bondi NY - Botanical Beauty
Botanical Beauty is a petal pink cream with purple undertones. Another color that I wouldn't normally get for myself, but if you like these types of pinks, it is a good one to have. Again, same smooth formula and flawless application. Also a one coater, which I was pleasantly surprised since it is a lighter shade.
Bondi NY - The Limelight
The Limelight is a bright lime green cream with a touch of jelly squishiness. This is the only one that needed a second coat, and that is pretty impressive! Normally, I can't wear these types of greens due to the dreaded lobster hands, but this one isn't so bad. Same smooth formula and application, just a tad sheer on the first coat and needs a thin second one to cover any VNL.
Bondi NY - Starry Night
Starry Night is a deep blue with a silvery shimmer in a blackened base. Not my favorite in terms of color, but the shimmer is super pretty! Another one coater with a great formula.
For all the swatches, I used the Bondi NY base/top coat I'm Vers. I love it as a base, it blocks stains and helps keep polish from chipping. As a top coat, not so much. It is super shiny, but takes a long time to dry. On a side note, I have found that Glossy Glam does not play well with Bondi NY. I have had pretty crazy shrinkage when I use them together. Boo.
If you are interested in a subscription box, this is a good option. Three full size polishes for $20, plus a beauty extra. Mine included a lip balm and some skin care samples. Nothing amazing, but it was the first box and I'm sure things will improve overtime.
