SAFS: Spellbound Nails Cremes - The Naturals

Happy Sunday dolls!

It's time for another segment of "Sunday's Are for Swatching"!


 I am so excited to finally be able to share this awesome collections of cremes with you.  in the craziness that has been my life, I haven't had the opportunity to put together this post.  I'm sacraficing sleep for this one but it's so very worth it lol.

As you all know, I have a great love for Spellbound Nails; I think Ashley makes amazing polishes and these are no exception.  This collection of cremes is called The Naturals.  These "are like a vacation around the world. Taking names and inspiration from things like San Pedro Morning (the khaki polish) to the Mediterranean Sky (the blue polish)"...

 Mediterranean Sky

From The Naturals creme collection. Buy the full collection here and receive a free bottle of Holo Back Girl! holographic topper free!
Mediterranean Sky is a perfectly faded blue. Much like the sky above the Mediterranean Sea this polish is pale enough to not overpower but still bright enough not to get lost.

 This is a gorgeous pale blue creme polish that was opaque in 2 easy coats.  I literally put this on right after opening the package.  I then snapped a photo with my phone and posted it to Ashley's FB page like a complete fan girl.  This polish is just perfection!  Easy to apply and such a gorgeous color.

Carribean Sunset

 Inspired by the blend of pink and purple at twilight, this purple really is a natural.  For me and my skin tone, this polish was very subdued.  Even if you are of a lighter complexion, this creme wouldn't be too bold.  This is definitely a pretty, "work friendly' polish.  2 no-muss coats for opacity.

 San Pedro Morning

This polish surprised me.  It's a lovely beige/kahki color that required 3 coats for opacity.  I fell head over friggin' heels for it!  It's an awesome neutral that I can wear to church and I feel like it would be a great base for some nail art.

 Buckingham Gardens

Don't you just love the name??  This olive creme was opaque in 3 coats.  I love the almost faded effect of this color.  I feel like it and San Pedro Morning would make a good camo mani.  Or maybe leopard print?  Either way, it's just as lovely as the others.

 Sunset Boulevard

Last but never least is this stunning coral creme.  This polish was opaque in 2 coats and I was just in awe of it.  Soooo pretty!!  I can attest that sunsets over Sunset Blvd. often times look peachy-coral and are lovely to look at.


What I love most about all of these polishes is that I didn't need to use topcoat for my swatches.  All of these polishes dried to a beautiful shine in less than 5 minutes. Brilliant!

These and many many other stunning polishes can be found on Ashley's new and improved website.  If you have never tried indie polishes before, may I encourage you to put your faith in Ashley?  She is so sweet and very timely with her deliveries.  I've customized polishes with her to add scents even (remember the banana cream pie scent I added to "Leave the Brakes On"... whovians ftw!!).  Either way, I adore these polishes and I especially adore their maker :)

Until next time!
