This new collection is part of the Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Collection, it’s the Summer Nights polishes and each polish is still named after an important girl/woman in my life. It has a lot of imagery behind it and you’ll see in the polishes that it goes from the pinks, oranges and reds of sunset into the blue and teals of the ocean finishing with the navy and purple of the summer sky.
The polishes will be $9.50 each and will be available to purchase with the rest of the Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Collections from Grace-full Nail Polish Etsy store after 7pm Sunday. You can also keep up to date on Grace-full Nail Polish news on Facebook

Today I have the very last Indie Extravaganza to share with you. Jacinta from Powder Perfect has been the brains behind the Extravaganza, organising for 15 Australian Indies to share their signature polish in three volumes. It's been a treat to swatch them all!
I was very surprised when I pulled the Lilypad Lacquer's Shining Bright out of the box. I just assumed it would be a holo but instead there is this unique orange flakie. Unfortunately I didn't catch it on my camera but it has a pinkish sheen to it as well as flakies and a golden pink shimmer. I am wearing three thin coats and still have a little visible nail line, it's only a problem if you're like me and don't like it. Next time I will pop an orange polish under. Now my camera loves/hates red/orange colours and really amps up the saturation. This polish is most like the last photo below.
Sayuri have created a polish that is all kinds of wonderful. Show Pony is a magenta crelly with matte pink and micro pink and purple glitter. The formula is wonderful and I am wearing three thin coats, this would be my favourite in the box if it wasn't pink :).
Celestial Cosmetics made Cosmic Dust a pretty deep blue almost denim in colour. Again my camera got carried away in the sun, the colour is most like the bottom photo. I am wearing no base coat or top coat and the formula applied easily in three thin coats.
I was super excited to see a teal polish in the box and Glass Crush from Arcane Lacquer does not disappoint. It's a teal crelly with tiny violet and blue square glitter, silver hexes and micro glitter in red, violet, turquoise and black. The application was simple and the formula wonderful to work with. I am wearing two thin coats.
Lastly is Jacinta's own addition to this collection Ringmaster. It's a beautiful microglitter with a blurple base, one minute I think it's blue the next purple so it's a perfect blurple. All the microglitters are bright colours and there are some super holographic ones in there to add a wonderful sparkle. It applies perfectly in two coats.
This feels like the perfect polish to finish on, if you haven't bought these volumes yet don't hesitate as once they're gone they're gone. Find them at Powder Perfect.

Nicki has done it again and brought out some gorgeous new pretties for all. First up is Cherika, a beautiful rich navy creme. I found the first coat a little patchy as most indie cremes are and I also need to mention it was a very warm evening when I was applying it. However the second coat went on perfectly and completely covered all the patchy spots. It has a fabulous richness of colour all in just two coats! I dressed it up a little below using Celestial's Pictor and Monocerus.
Ta da it's green :) You know I love a green and while I own a lot of green holos this one, Ocean of Storms is unlike any other I have in my collection. It's not heading towards mint as many mid green holos do but is very green, a more natural green I guess I would say. The holo power is fabulous with this one but as per usual my camera doesn't love to show holo rainbows. I am wearing two thin coats with no base coat or top coat.
The last polish I have to share with you is Solar Flare and it's a beauty. It's s taupey grey toned lilac that is gorgeous from the first stroke. I love pastels and I adore holos when they go into the taupey dusky tones so I fell in love with this polish immediately. It's soft and feminine and very now. Again you can see hints but you will have to take my word for it that the holo power is strong. (stupid camera).
There are more new releases coming out today that you will see around the web and you can pick them up at Celestial Cosmetics. Nicki opens today after a short holiday break. Her polishes will be limited to per batch this year so if you see one and like it grab it as you may not have the opportunity later on.
