I have something super exciting to show you today, and that is the debut collection from the new Aussie Indie brand, Bettie Pain Polish! The Dark Forest Collection will be available from the 16th August.
Just a quick side note before I start the review, all polished have been reformulated to be more opaque after feedback from all of us that swatched them and they are now all 2 coaters. Win!
The Dark Forest Collection consists of 6 polishes that are a jelly based consistency which makes them wonderful for layering, however they are far to sheer for my liking, but as mentioned above they have been reformulated.
First up is the stunningly unique Scattered Floor, a beautiful brown shimmery polish with green, gold and copper glitters. This was one of my favourites because of it's unique colour, formula was a little thin but manageable and opaque in 3 coats.
Next up is Cobweb, a shimmery silver. Personally I wouldn't wear this one on it's own, but it would look incredible over pastel polishes. Photos show 3 coats.
Next up is Poison Berry, red jelly base with red flecks. This one stunned the hell out of me! Opaque in 3 coats and covered any VNL, the flecks in this where gorgeous. Formula wise this was a bit runny and I did flood my cuticles but the red base did not stain so clean up was a breeze.
Ok, now we have hit my favourite in the collection, Fruit of the Dragon. A bright magenta jelly with subtle silver flecks and black glitter. This colour is stunning! The name didn't click until I had finished painting my nails and I went "this looks like a dragon fruit" and then I saw the name, so she certainly did a fantastic job recreating her inspiration. Photos show 3 coats with a small amount of VNL.
Now we have Wild Flower, a beautiful blurple jelly base packed with different coloured flecks and glitter, this one was stunning, but way to sheer so I chose to wear this as 2 coats over a blurple creme polish. I look forward to seeing photos with the new formula as this polish.
Last but not least is Midnight, and another favourite of mine! Blue micro glitters in a sheer black base. This one could not be worn on it's own so I wore 2 coats over a black creme, so subtle but amazingly gorgeous.
Overall, I love the colours in this collections, formula wise they needed some improvement and that has already happened. I look forward to seeing photos of the reformulated polishes and wish Bettie Pain Polish all the best!
