Windestine Review and Swatches

One of my first favorite Etsy shops was Windestine. The creator, Freda, was one of the original black and white glitter creator, with two of my long-running favorites, Carbon Copy and Asbestos. In addition to creating amazing glitters, Freda's a truly outstanding seller. She individually contacted me when she found out that the polishes I bought from her may contain steel mixing balls that may leech into the polish. She offered to reimburse me even!

Since Etsy, she's moved up to her own site, now selling through Big Cartel. Asbestos and Carbon Copy are both still available, but she's also added some really dreamy colors. I'm showing you three of those today: Pele, Androgynous, and Snow Prince.

I'm beyond pleased to report that I absolutely loved these three polishes. They're on the sheer side, but that's intentional. It creates the sometimes milky, sometimes candy effect that brings out the glitters in the mixes. I'm so excited to show these today!



First is Androgynous. While I like this one a lot, it's not the best for my skin tone. I'm showing 4 coats for this one, with no base color. It would be unbelievable over a nude, which I regret not showing you in the post. Guess you'll just have to get a bottle of your own to try out!

The next color is Snow Prince. This is the milky polish I was talking about. I used 4 coats again with no base coat. The milky base has both gold and pink pieces of glitter. It's simple, but it's really a perfect mix.

I liked this polish so much, I kept it on for several days! I also did a little floral nail art to accompany it. Just like the polish, I wanted to make it a subtle design. Can you see all the flowers?



 The last color I'm showing today is Pele. OH WOW. I really just want to suck on this color, like a Jolly Rancher. It's a true jelly color, sweet and delicious. I can hardly stand it. I'm actually wearing this polish again. I couldn't wait to put it back on after swatching! This is showing 3 coats with no base color.

I loved the application and recipe of each of these, as different as they are. I'll likely be placing an order for a few more, and you can too at the Windestine shop.

Thank you for your excellent business Freda! I can't wait to see more from the shop!

  7. Heh, this post hits 2/3 of my recent Windestine order! I didn't get Snow Prince; don't actually remember seeing it? Must've overlooked it. I got Spring Into Fall to complete my order. =) Lovely swatches, now I'm really looking forward to wearing these.
