Mrs Cross' Nail Shop How Romantic Collection - Swatches & Review

Saturday, 9 May 2015

PR Sample
Mrs Cross' Nail Shop is a UK indie company, run by Leanne. Her 5 free nail polishes are sold on eBay and Etsy and today I have her new collection to show you. I love the collections that indie sellers create and Leanne's new 'How Romantic' collection is no exception. This 5 piece consists of 3 pearly shimmers, a shimmery creme and a glitter, all of which represent a different Romantic Trait. I want to thank Leanne for sending me full sized bottles as I am bound to want to use these again and again.

Immediately I thought of valentines day and weddings, the colour palette exudes 'love' and the soft pearly shimmers remind me of silky fabrics. It's perfect for girly girls or those wishing to soften up their nail game for the summer.

Ethereal Romantic is a soft lilac shimmery pearl. Although it appears to be very thin on the first coat, this polish quickly builds and after 3 coats its perfect. It has a frosty finish, which some don't like, however for me it suits the polish.

Blossoming Romantic is a soft pink tinged shimmery pearly white. Again the formula is on the thin side, so 3/4 coats are needed to build up the colour. However application is easy and it dries reasonably quickly. This would be perfect for any bride to be who wants a stunning shade to compliment their dress.

Blushing Romantic is a peachy/pink blush with a golden shimmer. I couldn't really see the shimmer on my nails, however it looks gorgeous in the bottle and would be amazing if it was stronger. I used 2, smooth coats for full coverage.

Gilded Romantic is an amazing golden/bronze glitter in a blush base. I love this glitter, its super pretty, makes your nails sparkle like a million fairy lights and compliments the collection perfectly. I used 2 coats for full coverage. *side note, the brush with this polish is amazing. It's bigger and flatter than the others and I love it.

Lastly is Intense Romantic, a deep crimson shimmery pearl, with a hint of pink. I was a little surprised that this polish was so thin as it appears so rich in the bottle. However this didn't matter one bit as it applied beautifully and built up perfectly like the other 2 shimmery pearls in 3 coats.

You can buy the whole collection for £26, or individually for £5.90 for a 10ml bottle on Etsy here as well as lots of other nail art supplies via the Mrs Cross' Nail Shop on eBay here. I highly recommend this collection, it's beautiful and my top picks are Blushing Romantic and Gilded Romantic.
