DAPHINE POLISH Gemstone collection for Fall : Swatches and Review

Hi there, my darlings! So...I have ANOTHER collection from Joanne of Daphine Polish to share today! Yeah, she's launching a bright, neon late Summer collection but hey! She's preparing for Fall too with the concurrent launch of er Gemstones collection! Here's what she describes this collection as : "Jewel toned holographic polishes with shimmering flakies for extra sparkle. Inspired by precious gems and minerals for a bright fall statement."

Before we take a look at swatches, let's take a quick minute to talk about the application and formula of these polishes. Across the board, I found the formula and application to be absolutely fantastic--all but one of these holos was fully opaque in 2 smooth coats but here's the best part! The 2-coaters could have easily been ONE-coaters if you have a steady hand and heavier brushstokes . Since they're neons, The swatches below show 2 thin coats, topped with 1 thin coat of G&G's HK Girl to finish the look. This has got to be my most faveorite of ALL of Joanne's collections to date!

Ruby - This bright pink holographic polish flashes with pink-gold flakies just like the precious stone. Rubies can range from pink to deep red in color.

Love this shade of pink! So flattering on any complexion, I bet!

With flash!

Malachite - A deep turquoise green holographic polish with turquoise flakies. Malachite is a mineral formerly used as a pigment for green paints and carved for decorative purposes.

This teal is to die for! The added flakies just added to the depth and vibrancy of this polish!

With flash!

Lapis - This bold blue holographic polish has green-gold flakies just like lapis which is often shot with pyrite, or fool's gold. Lapis has been used since ancient times as a paint pigment and as precious inlay and jewelry. 

Though I hated to pick, I have to say this one might be my favorite of this collection! Just look at this blue--rich and vibrant and just utterly gorgeous!

With flash!

Amethyst - A bright purple holographic polish with blue flakies. Amethyst is a semi-precious stone which the Ancient Greeks believed prevented intoxication (anyone else but me wish it worked?!).

This one was the only one that required 3 coats for full opacity but the end result was this divine purple somewhere between lavender and deep lilac that I absolutely adored!

With flash!

So there you have it, my darlings! Daphine Polish's Gemstone collection for Fall, along with the late Summer collection, will officially launch on at Daphine Polish's Etsy shop HERE tonight, September 18th at 8 pm EST.

  1. Lapis is stunning on you, but I think Ruby is my favorite! It's just the perfect pink, not too warm or cool, love it.
