windestine... a collection

Hi Guys:)  Did you miss me???? I sure did miss you guys!!!!  I hope you all had a very merry Christmas, I did!!! It is sooo funny how the enthusiasm that kids have over Christmas can rub off on the adults and spread that Christmas cheer!!! But after Christmas my house got hit with a stomach bug:( Not cool Santa!!! I don't remember viral contagions being on my list this year!!! Anyway on to the goodies:)  I have some beautiful polishes from Windestine to show you:)  First up is Twirling Upwards, this fabulous polish is an apricot color with a microflake pink shimmer to it, with an infusion of gold glitter. This polish has a fabulous formula and is super smooth:) I have two coats followed with a coat of SV, this doesn't appear to be a topcoat eater either:)

Next up we have Inner Glow, this creamy sandy tan has a gold/silver micro shimmer to it that really does make it glow. This is a really good nude polish, it has just enough shimmer to not be boring.  Again a great formula, I used two coats and 1 coat of SV, it dried in a flash too!

This polish was probably the biggest surprise out of this bunch for me. I am not a huge brown fan, I may have a total of 3 in my whole collection:) but this I L♥VE!!!  It has a slight pink shimmer hidden that you only see in certain lights and from certain angles.  Total coverage in two coats.  I cant wait to use this as a stamping base:)

Jaquimo (I have no idea how to pronounce this) but this is a light pink/coral/peach with a white/silver microflake. This is a beautiful polish and one I thought I would love, but it washes my skin out:(  but maybe once I get my pasty self a tan it will look fab:) This polish gets full coverage with 2 coats, and would look great with a silver stamp:)
Crushed Rose is a glitter top coat that has light pink and white shards mixed with yellow, pink and white pearl glitters in a clear base.  When I look at this polish I just envision a little girl on Easter Sunday in her little pink and white dress.  This is such a springy glitter, I can't wait for the weather to get a little warmer:)
Finally we have Pond Patrol. This polish has a dark green jelly base with a mix of pastel matte glitters and tiny bright pink glitters.  This polish is definitely reminiscent of an algae bloom in a pond.  It is not a traditionally pretty polish, but the longer I wore it the more I ♥'ed  it:) This polish definitely needs a top coat, but the glitter distribution is excellent:)
All the fabulous polish are available on Etsy for $8 for a full size or $3 for a mini. Oh and stay tuned a little birdy told me that Freda over at windestine has a new collection premiering in January:)   Don't for get to show the ♥ over on her Facebook Page:)

Some of the products in this post were sent to me for review. I was not paid for my review of this product and all opinions are my own.


  1. they're all must haves!!! I wish she shipped internationally, cos they're way too expensive from other stockists :(

  2. I just realized I really have no browns or greens in my collection. I'm gonna have to remedy that.


Thank you for your comments:) Have a pinked day:)
