Face of Australia Nail Enamel Pastels Collection



In case you haven't already heard, Face of Australia have just launched their new nail enamel range - the Pastels collection! Just in time for summer, they've released 8 new gorgeous shades, each more beautiful than the last!

The Pastels range has been ridiculously difficult for us ladies to find as they've been flying off the shelves! I was very lucky enough to see that my small, local Priceline had a fully stocked Face of Australia stand, which included every last one of these beautiful babies!



From left to right:

I'll Take You to the Candy Shop, Have Your Cupcake and Eat It Too, Would You Like Some Orange Sherbert, Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy, After Dinner Mint, Once in a Blue Moon, Boys 'N' Berries, Castle on a Cloud

All swatches are worn with Sally Hansen Growth Strength base coat and no top coat.

I absolutely love the Face of Australia collections, and the Pastels collection has been no exception! As always, the polish is very long lasting (I purchased the rest of the collection today, but previously purchased Castle on a Cloud and have worn it three days straight!) and chip resistant!

The pigmentation is also unbelievable! The above swatches are only ONE coat of polish! I could not believe my eyes! For pastels, I was expecting sheer colour, but these are absolutely perfect polishes!

You can find the Pastel collection in Priceline, Big W and anywhere else that stocks Face of Australia! (if you're lucky!) They will set you back a measly $4.95 which is an amazing price for such a fantastic polish! I was lucky to get the collection today whilst Priceline was offering a 20% off cosmetics discount!

Have you tried out the Pastels collection yet? What do you think?

  1. Wow, that looks amazing! I'm always wary of pastels because I'm so impatient, and usually end up smudging it before it dries if I have to put more than 2 coats!

    1. Me too, but these ones are also really fast drying! (Forgot to mention that!) But one coat is also sooo much easier ;)

    It's funny though, I would not say they are one coaters (for me) so it's rather odd yours are! Maybe uneven batch?

    1. Oh really? I must have got a different batch, but my nails are very very light which might have helped a lot! Either way, even with two-three coats they're still amazing!
      You should totally buy more ;) hehe
