ELES Cosmetics - Masquerade Nail Polish Collection

Hello everyone! Today I'm really excited to show you an Australian brand called ELES Cosmetics (check out their website here) and they are a mineral make up line with healthy skin formulas and all their nail polishes are 3-Free!. They have just released a new nail collection called Masquerade and it consists of 12 colours* inspired by costumed-carnivals and masquerade it! Each ELES polish is $20 and can be found in selected beauty salons and day spas nationally. So to avoid repeating myself each colour had the same formula and I found them all very easy to use with no problems whatsoever. Each swatch has 2 coats with no top coat.

Vivaldi Blue - A stunning aqua blue creme with silver shimmer. This was a little streaky.

Baroque Bronze - A metallic bronze with a lit within look. This was also a bit streaky. 

Carnivale Copper - This was slightly more orange-toned than copper IRL, like a burnt orange colour.

 Casanova Red - A classic tomato red creme.

Colombina Gold - A shimmery nude gold, looked gorgeous on my skin tone.

Fuchsia Fontana - A really pretty fuchsia duochrome with magenta and purple shimmers.

Nude Contessa - A light nude cream. Reminds me of Milky Ways by Lime Crime.

Othello Orange - A super bright neon orange. dries to a matte finish.

Phantom Black - A black matte. I was very surprised and delighted to see this one dry matte! YAY!

Purple Royale - A very vibrant grape purple colour. This one was very hard to photograph but this is the truest colour (sorry about the yellow skin colour!)

Tintoretto Teal - A dark forest teal green creme.

Veronese Orchid - A dusky pale lavender creme.

My favourites from this collection was definitely phantom black, vivaldi blue, purple royale and colombia gold! Overall I really like this collection and feel it does represent a masquerade theme very well! There are some colours I have seen many times before but also some that were very unique and gorgeous! Be sure to check out their colours and let me know if you pick any up! Thanks for reading.
