Hi everyone! Happy New Year. It has been quite some time since I last posted and I’m looking to bring you much more content in 2019. First up – a new brand review! The Nail Bazaar is a 5 free, cruelty free brand created in August of 2018 here in the United States. Full disclosure – I was offered a discount code to try this brand but this review is not sponsored – all thoughts and impressions are 100% my own. 🙂
I purchased three shades in different finishes to appeal to all tastes. Let’s get into the colors!
Cosmic Cranberry is the cream shade I selected. It’s a pretty standard berry red shade with a fantastic formula! One coat provides almost full coverage but two coats is needed to match the bottle.
Shown is two coats and top coat.
Minimum Wage is the shimmer shade I selected. It is a beautiful kelly green with a kiwi green shimmer running throughout it. This formula was much thinner than Cosmic Cranberry and needs three thin coats to reach full coverage.
Shown is three coats and top coat.
Galactic Mermaid is the holographic shade I selected. This is a perfect ocean blue linear holographic. No complaints here – this applied like butter and is gorgeous in the sunlight! Shown is two coats and top coat.
Now for some smaller details – the formula was consistent aside from Minimum Wage, which was thinner but needed to be in order for the shimmer to stand out. The brush is fairly small, which I am not used to and can make it tricky if you overwork the polish. I did not experience any issues while swatching with the brush, but if you prefer wider brushes, I would recommend swapping these out. The bottles are 13.3 mL (0.45 oz) full with a price point of $11. I have seen sales pop up so I would say this is a brand that’s worth checking out!
