Hey Guys... Two posts in one day!! Yay!! I came across Mélange on Etsy and instantly fell in love with one of their polishes called Peace & Love. I purchased that one and the girls at Melange were nice enough to send a few more for review... Let's get started..
Peace & Love:
OK, first off... how freaking cute is that Peace Charm?? I love peace signs and flowers (I should have been a hippie). Not only am I in love with the name and peace sign, I'm also in love with this polish. Peace & Love has a sheer lime base with pink, red, and green hex glitter and micro blue glitter. This one could have been worn alone with three coats, but I chose to layer two thin coats over Color Club Twiggie, followed by topcoat... I really love Peace & Love... it's soooo "me". :)
Burning Flame is a great Fall Glitter. It was a bit thick, but not impossible to work with. Maybe add a few drops of thinner if you purchase this one. I have Burning Flame layered over Barry M Mushroom, followed by a coat of Gelous, then topcoat. This one could easily be worn alone with no "undies".
Purp-OH-Licious is amazing!!! It's densely packed with purple and fuchsia micro glitter in a clear base. The shimmer with Purp-OH-Licious is so pretty. I have two coats of Purp-OH-Licious followed by two coats of topcoat on the above pics. Topcoat is important with this one as it makes the purple/pink shine much more brightly. This one is Megan's (one of the creators) favorite. :)
Another cute charm... the witch on the broom is darling!! This is Witches Brew and it's perfect for Halloween. It contains orange hex, purple squares, and yellowish micro glitter in a clear base. The formula with Witches Brew is perfect. I have two coats layered over Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Green With Envy. Witches Brew is so versatile..top off your favorite base for a great Halloween Mani with this one :)
Finally we have Jellybean. (and, yes, I'm trying to find a new watermark font :). Jellybean's base is a sheer mint color. It's not quite a jelly, but with topcoat it appears jelly-like. I love the color combo in Jellybean.. aqua, indigo, yellow, red and purple hex with just a touch of small white bar glitter. Pictured above is two coats with topcoat.
**I really love Melange Polishes! They're all unique with great formula. The little charms added to some of them are such a cute touch. I guess my only complaint is the name of each polish isn't on the bottle.. I had to glance at the shop to remind myself what each one was called... but that's really not a big deal. With all the Indie Shops that are popping up lately, Melange really stands out as something a "little different". Two thumbs up to Melange!! The owners of Melange are Megan and Caitlin... I just found out Caitlin is Megan's 9 year-old daughter who comes up with most of their polish ideas... isn't that so cute??? :)
