Review: Deadset Babes Nail Polish

Hey all!

A little while back I was contacted by the girls over at Deadset Babes about reviewing some of their polish, and I was ecstatic so naturally I said yes. The girls kindly sent me 3 polishes for consideration. A little background, Deadset Babes is a relatively new Aussie Indie brand based out of Sydney and is run by 2 friends Emma and Bella. This is going to be pic heavy ;)

First up is Teenage Crime, a clear polish base filled with Matte Dark & Light Purple, Lavender & White hex glitter in all different sizes. 

My bottle was very very runny, which was unfortunate as it meant a looooooot of fishing to get the glitters out of the bottle. I ended up having to dab about 2 coats worth on to get any glitter out at all, this meant I had a lot of the clear base on my nail. The swatches are 2 coats Illamasqua Velocity with 2 dabbed coats of Teenage Crime, no top coat.

Next up is Red Alert, a clear polish base filled with large sized matte Red Squares & Hearts and small squares, large black stars & small squares and a sprinkle of red holographic glitter for sparkle.

This bottles base was much better than Teenage Crime so I am hoping the runnyness is not a consistent thing. I must say, I did like the fine glitter that they put in this polish, it gave it a little more substance than just being another huge glitter in a clear base, I did still have to fish quite a bit to get any of the star or heart glitter out. Swatches are 1 coat Kleancolour Tangerine Burst, 1 dabbed coat of Red Alert and 1 coat normal top coat.

Last up is Midnight at Tiffany's, a clear polish base filled with small & medium sized Black & Teal matte glitters. 

If you follow my IG you would of seen this polish over a different base colour a few weeks back. Again, this polish was incredibly runny and thus meant fish city. It's a shame because I like the teal glitters. Swatches are 2 coats Revlon Royal with 2 dabbed coats of Midnight at Tiffany's, 1 coat normal top coat. I really really like this colour combo.

My final thought on these polishes, if they improve the base used these will be great at I looove the colour combos they are coming up with. I have heard from a few other Indie makers that where has been some bad base floating around at the moment.

Deadset Babes nail polish can be bought from their Etsy store for $9 for a 12ml bottle, and they also ship internationally!
