Somehow, somewhen, amidst all the sinuses and all the challenges, I have forgotten to post what was going to be MARCH’S (sheeesh) Polish of the Month, and her sister. So finally, somehow, some slack, here are the awesome twins – Divinity and Ambrosia from Ninja Polish.
If you haven’t checked them out recently, Ninja Polish, who started as “just” an e-tailer, have branched out into their own potions and glitterbomb-explosions over the last few months. Initially this led to almost more Floam varieties than the world could reasonably handle, but recently, it’s led to some amazing polishes with JUST the right amount of magical, duo-ey chrome-y shimmer.
Do you remember last year, when everyone was obsessed with Max Factor Fantasy Fire? For those who remember, it was a teeny tiny bottle of purple looking magic, which had to be layered over another colour (usually purple). It then added a shimmer of fire which also turned witchily to green.
Well Divinity is the supreme evolution of that polish. A decent sized bottle, all the duochrome you could ask for, and …. are you ready ….. OPAQUE. Yup, opaque. 2 to 3 coats. OPAQUE. From one bottle, not 2. No layering. OPAQUE!!!
This is what I love about polish FANS making polishes. This couldn’t be more perfect, but could only have been created by someone disappointed in Fantasy Fire.
I absolutely love this. You may have seen it on other blogs over the last couple of months, but it just doesn’t get old. This is a fab “grab a polish with a bit of something ooh lala as I run out the door” for your stash.
And yet Divinity isn’t the polish I lost my heart to. Uh uh. Nope. I lost my heart to my secret Kryptonite – orange-red-shimmer love child! Behold, Ambrosia.
Ah, Ambrosia, let me count the waaaaaaaaaaays! Agh, just too gorgeous, too lovely, too happy for words. This is pure heart shaped tomato-ey love in a bottle for me. This colour is my weakness as it lifts my mood, and siiiiiiigh, Ambrosia and I are going to be very happy together.
Will you look at the light in that polish? Look, look! Look how she holds and hugs the light like the cutest gossamer duvet, and then channels it into electric shimmer.
I likes this one. A LOT. So yes, Ambrosia was supposed to be my polish of the month for March and actually for April, and now it’s May and damn she’s got some competition. Whooops. Maybe she’ll have to settle for Polish of The Year.
These polishes were sent to me for an honest review. Enjoy xx
