Bettie Pain Polish – Review (Part 1)

Press sample

I was lucky enough to be asked to swatch and review six new polishes from new Australian Indie brand Bettie Pain Polish. They will be launching their website on the 16th of August so keep a look out.

This review is for three of the six polishes in the first ever and yet unreleased ‘Dark Forest Collection’.  On initially receiving these I was very happy not to be getting summer brights because that’s all I have had on my nails for the last few months 🙂

They were packaged with care individually, and I always appreciate it when someone takes time in packaging the product.  I also got a little treat thrown in.

The first polish I decided to swatch was ‘Poison Berry’.  It is a deep red tone (almost like blood) with very subtle scattered glitter.  The whole collation is a sheer, jelly like finish, so it is very versatile to top on other block colours or to layer to get a deep jelly polish effect.

It is such a lovely colour and just perfect for Autumn/Winter.  I added a few embellishments to the mani, not too much as to take away from the beauty of the polish. I always like to take indoor and outdoor shots when I am swatching polishes which you can see below.

The second polish I tried was a lovely silvery glitter polish which would be great as a glitter topper on any colour.  It is packed full of tiny glitters.

I decided to paint a spider and cobweb with acrylic paint.

The third polish and last in the 1st part of this review is ‘Midnight’.  This is a very sheer dark blue polish with subtle blue glitter sprinkles making it perfect for galaxy nails. Its a very sheer polish and this one was actually 5 coats on my nails.

Isn’t it stunning, I think this is my fave from the first 3 I have tried.  Well my fave colour is blue so this is perfect.  I added some clouds to the accent nail oh and a star 🙂

Overall I am very impressed with this new indie from Auz, and wish them all the best for the future.  The 2nd part of the review will be up later this week.
