I Know You Know Collection From The Lady Varnishes: Part One

I was very happy when the post came today. I received a package from the lovely Elissa and Kirsten of The Lady Varnishes. It contained six beautifully packaged sample sized bottles from their I Know You Know Collection, and a preview of their Because You Listen Collection, plus a bonus bottle of polish that comes when you order the whole collection.

These polishes, from left to right, are called: I Know You Know, To The Blueberry, You Know That’s Right, You Heard About Pluto?, Dazzle And Stretch, and Girl Needs A Doughnut.

I have to say my first impression of this range of polish is very positive. I love how each bottle has a little charm on it, and the charm has a colored jewel which matches the shade of nail polish. It’s detail and personal touches like that which really make me feel that this collection is special. These bottles would make great little gifts for nail polish lovers and girly girls. All the polishes are 3-Free and cruelty free.

The Lady Varnishes is owned by two sisters Elissa and Kirsten. They are very approachable and friendly. I am always impressed when people find a way to do what they love and these two definitely have a huge passion for polish. 🙂 They’ve gone from experimenting with polish in their spare time to opening an Etsy store and starting collections!

I Know You Know

This polish took two coats and a little extra dabbing to cover less glittery areas. It’s a matte green glittery polish, with very fine green glitter, and larger white shreds. To apply, the polish is quite thick. This was great because it was easier to deal with than really watery streaky polish. I found it quite easy to evenly apply. There is a very healthy amount of glitter in each brush stroke. A bonus with all these polishes is the drying time, it’s super fast! This polish, although loaded with glittery goodness, wasn’t too coarse when it dried. I liked it because it reminded me of spring and freshly cut grass. 9 10

To The Blueberry

Ok, to be honest I was a little nervous when applying this polish. I’ve had bad luck with blue nail polish staining my nails. Thankfully, this polish did not do that. It came off really easily with no staining. The best thing about this polish is the colour, it really pops! I don’t think it’s possible to capture how eye-catching it is in real life but I hope my camera came close. This polish required three coats to cover bald patches. The polish is a shimmery blue with black and super fine silver glitter. It just sparkles across the nail. Yum.

You Know That’s Right

I don’t usually go for lighter nail polishes, I seem to gravitate more to bolder colours. That may be about to change. Purple is my favourite colour anyway so this wasn’t really a hard sell! This is a very ladylike shimmery violet with purple, silver, and green glitter mixed in, that’s a great combo! This is a very cute polish that I think will appeal to most people.

Flower French Manicure!

I was in a colorful mood what can I say! I really wanted a bright multicolored manicure. Here’s what I used.

This is my flower wheel. I bought in at an online Korean store. I assumed that they were fake but actually these are real pressed flowers!

Cute aren’t they? 🙂

Here’s a close up of each of my nails.

Here’s today’s look  without the flowers.

Floral Nail Goodness :)

My order of nail supplies came today and one of the things that arrived was nail transfers! Yay! (makes me happy!)

Here’s how I started

I cut out the piece I wanted then pulled off the plastic coating. I put it in the container of water, waited for 10 seconds, and then put it on my nail. The transfer slips off the cardboard onto the nail. Result? Awesome nails!
