La Bella Vernice Review

Today we have a few polishes from La Bella Vernice

I was sent these polishes for review:

Vineyard-Limited Edition Fall 2013 Collection
Harvest-Limited Edition Fall 2013 Collection
Crushed Velvet-From the Winter Blues Collection Feeling Blue-Mood Swings Collection

First lets have a look at the adorable packaging that these come in!

First up we have Vineyard! A perfectly named purple with a blue shift. Think about grapes at a vineyard... if you are like me then you have really only seen them in pictures but the image is the same. A purple with a hint of blue not to dark and not to light... The perfect grape!

This polish could be worn alone or possibly over another purple to spiff it up. Kinda sheer in one coat but opaque in two. This is a chrome polish... I don't always have the steadiest of hands so you can see the lines a little. Drying time was quick... like I did one hand and by the time I was done I could have went back to do the second coat immediately. Formula is smooth.  

Cost: $10.00 for a 15ml

Shown here with 2 coats. 

Here you can see a little of that blue poking through in the refection of the light.

I was able to catch the shift!

Next up we have Harvest! Harvesting time is usually in the fall an this color is a great depiction of fall.  Copper orange, pink and red shifter with a slight shimmer! It is so hard to accurately describe this color because it is just..... awww! It's Autumn in a bottle! 

This one is also chrome as well but very easy to work with (I was a little bit steadier with this one hehe). Drying time is great too! Opaque in 2 coats. Formula was smooth.

Cost: $10.00 for a 15ml

 Is it Pink?

  Is it orange?

With flash to try and catch that shimmer!

Next we have Crushed Velvet! Oh how I didn't want to take this off! A beautiful navy blue with holo glitter! I am a sucker for BLUE!  This polish does have a bit of texture without a top coat but that's to be expected when there is glitter in a polish... not to mention when you put a top coat on.... WOW holo sparkle that seems like it in just floating there! This could be a one coater if you do a thicker coat.... I like doing thin coats so it cuts own on drying time. This one does dry a bit matte but I personally like that because I always use topcoat and the ones that dry matte gives me a visual to know that its dry lol. This dried pretty quickly too. I used 2 thin coats. Removal was a breeze!

Cost: $10.00 for a 15ml

It's like a little galaxy on my nails!

 And last but definitely not least we have Feeling Blue! This holo glitter thermal polish goes from a very light blue (almost clear) to a dark blurple... more on the blue side than purple. This too has a but of texture once dry. Drying time was great! When this polish is warm it is light blue/clear state so you really can't get it opaque so you might want to wear it over something if you don't like your smile lines like me lol. I did use 3 coats, only because I wanted to build up the glitter lol. The formula was very smooth. Removal wasn't bad at all, unlike most polishes that have a lot of glitter where you have to sometimes was the foil method. A few swipes with a cotton ball and some acetone and it was off.... now the glitters did get on my fingers/cuticles (but who doesn't like to sparkle right) as I was removing but this was easily taken care of by washing my hands. 

Cost: $10.00 for a 15ml or $4.50 for a 5ml


 It's as hard to cool off my fingers lol I was running warm lol

Starting to change!

Here you can see the full transition (and yes you can see the drip of cold water on my thumb lol I was trying to be quick with the photo)

Final summary:
These polishes have a great formula, Dry fast, and are B E A utiful!
