Although I've not really dipped into the world of Indie nail polish brands (besides with the beautiful LEX 'Tuileries'), they always seem to create incredible effect polishes. I've not been bowled over by the offerings from big brands this year, 'concrete' in particular puts my teeth on edge, so after spotting some polishes on The Nailasaurus I put in an order with Sonnetarium. Michelle offers handmade polishes and they all come in two sizes, 9ml and 15ml. The 9ml, which I opted for, is $6...that's £3.70.
'Samurai Princess' is a clear polish with hex and bar particles. The polish is packed with glitter, so you barely need two coats to get a nice layered effect, but it still applies smoothly. I first tried it over a white polish and the result was very 101 Dalmatians, but I felt it was a tiny bit stark and you couldn't really see the white hex particles. So I tried a different combo, swapping the white for alternate layers of O.P.I's Care to Danse, a milky purple jelly. The particles are much more visible and it really shows off the polish at its best.
I also bought Peppermint Kiss, a milky polish with red, white and green hexes, but as it's a bit seasonal I think I'll save it for another time. Unfortunately both polishes seem to be sold out but I thought it was worth mentioning as I'll definitely have my beady eye on the website from now on!
Shipping was around $6, and they arrived within about 10 days.
