Nail Artisan Cosmetics - Hold Your Flakes Collection

*AD - Gifted*
Hello lovelies! Today I'm back with swatches of an upcoming collection from new indie brand Nail Artisan Cosmetics, created by Alex of UK stockist Nail Artisan. These are also the first Nail Artisan Cosmetic polishes I've tried. The Hold Your Flakes Collection consists of four jelly based polishes packed full of flakies. I did help Alex name the polishes themselves, so brace yourselves because I never can resist a cheesy pun! Read on for my full swatches and more info.

As all four polishes have very similar formulas, I'll address that now to avoid repeating myself. They are smooth and easy to apply. As they are jelly bases, they do start off sheer, but you get a very generous amount of flakes out which help build up the opacity. I personally like the coverage from three coats. The flakes lie flat on the nail and are easy to remove.

'Flake Me Away' is a royal blue jelly base with shifty flakes and holographic blue microglitter. I can mainly pick out copper, pink, and orange from the flakes. Below is three coats with topcoat.

'For Goodness Flake' is a green jelly base with shifty flakes and holographic green microglitter. I can pick out copper, pink and orange shifting flakes, as well as purple to blue to green. Below is three coats with topcoat.

What do you think? I really like these! It's nice to have a bit of a break from all the brighter Summer shades. I also like that the jelly bases allow you to build them up as much or as little as you prefer - plus it really allows the flakes to shine through! As always, if you have shorter nails and/or less obvious nail line than me, you will be able to get them more opaque quicker.

The Hold Your Flakes Collection will are available now on the Nail Artisan website here. Each polish is £8.50 and is in a 10ml bottle.
