Review: Bella's Touch Lacquer 'Emerald Sea' & 'Heartbreaker'

 Today I have some swatches of Bella’s Touch Lacquer – a new Aussie indie polish brand! Bella’s Touch is the creation of Ellie (@nailpolishaddicted1 on Instagram). What makes this brand special is that Ellie is only 14! She is extremely mature for her age, a pleasure to talk to and has made some amazing nail polish!

 I got two of the polishes from her launch collection; ‘Emerald Sea’ and ‘Heartbreaker’.

'Emerald Sea' (left) and 'Heartbreaker'

 First is Emerald Sea. This glitter topper is a mix of blue and green glitter in a clear base with small light blue squares, tiny light blue hexes, small teal hexes, and bigger pastel green hexes.
Application for this polish was easy. I and got an even mix of glitter on the brush and didn’t have to fish. Because it’s a glitter topper, it’s best applied using the dabbing method rather than just brushing it on the nail like you would with a crème.

 For my swatches, I used two dabbed coats of ‘Emerald Sea’ over Australis ‘Indie’ and Sally Hansen ‘The Sky’s The Limit’.

The second polish I got from Bella’s Touch is ‘Heartbreaker’. This polish is a sheer duochrome layering polish to be used over the top of a plain crème polish. I’m a sucker for colour-shifting polish and this one is a great addition to my collection!

‘Heartbreaker’ shifts from blue to purple, depending on the light and angle that you’re looking at it.
This polish features a great formula that makes for super easy application. I used two coats for my swatches. You could also add a third coat but I found that wasn’t necessary.

 It’s also really versatile! I find that some duochromes layering polishes only really shine over a black base but as you can see from the photo below, ‘Heartbreaker’ looks great of a great range of colours.

L-R Sinful Colours 'Black on Black', Ulta3 'Royal', Sinful Colours 'Endless Blue', Sally Hansen 'Cherry Cherry, Bang Bang!', Nutrimetics 'Cafe', and Sally Hansen 'White On'.

Which is your favourite? I like it best over Ulta3 'Royal' which is a dark purple.

 Bella's Touch Lacquer is Australian made, 3-free and available for purchase at Ellie's etsy store here, where she also sells nail polish jewelry! Bottles are $8.50 for 15ml with shipping only in Australia.
