Ruby White Tips Winter Collection Review

Up today is the much anticipated Ruby White Tips Winter Collection I was sent for review recently from their shop linked here. This post is photo heavy, but so worth the browse so stay tuned! 

Little Things Are Big,
This soft nude/pink with a rose dust shimmer dries glossy and perfect in two coats. This polish I found really unique, and because I liked it so much, I chose to start with all the pastels in the collection. I really hope to see more pastels from RWT in every collection. These were really something special.

This Is Not Black
Soft pink with micro silver holo. Dries matte and slightly textured, but this was gone after one coat of Seche. Another one that's perfect in two coats. 

Soft Kitty
This is also two coats with Seche. It's a so glossy on its own though, and my absolute favourite of the pink tone polishes. This perfect nude/pink has adorable red and silver micro glitters peeking out. 

Shut Up And Sit Down
This polish was a little more sheer than the others, but still buildable in three thin coats. This silvery baby blue has a holo touch and really needs to be seen, my camera didn't do it justice!

Ticket Out Of Here
This neat minty green was good in two coats. This polish was the fussiest of the bunch. It has a hint of texture that smooths out well with a generous Seche coat, but doesn't like all. Guys, I gotta tell you it's gorgeous and totally worth it!

Blue Realm
This one is the perfect blue and like a cross between a shimmer and a holo. It's stunning!!! I dub this a 'sholo' and it's one of the best in the collection. (I'm a nut for blue!)

Bronze Batwing Holo
This ones pretty unique with its pink shimmer base and red/pink micro glitter and 'bat glitter!!!' It's insanely cool. Ruby White Tips actually has a long standing relationship and donates proceeds from some polish to a Bat Sanctuary, more info linked here.

This one in its sexy matte gorgeous finish was another fave. I would wear this as is and stare all day long! A fine silver dust really makes this a next level polish. 

Mon Cher
This one is the perfect denim blue holo, heavy on the holo payout! Another one perfect in two coats, and so flashy! Fabulous formula and straight to the front of my holo stash!

This polish is very Ruby White Tips. Earthy, rich, shimmery and smooth. This is two coats of the style and finish RWT does best. This dusty taupe/mauve would look amazing as a less vampy holiday polish.

Satin Sheets
Similar to the last one, satin Sheets 'is' a vampy charcoal polish with intense green shimmer. Potentially a one coater, but I've used two for the photos. I also loved the satin finish, so this one is without Seche.

For Them All
Another crazy fun polish with those bats! This polish looks so squishy and shiny, that the bats are hard to see in these photos even though there are three in the mani. Unlike other large glitter polishes, I had no trouble getting these out of the bottle. This is a really neat mix of glitter and juicy and full opaque in two coats.

Hue Too Many
I'm going to rename this BEST EVER GLITTER TOPPER! I love my blues and this was just gorgeous! I can't wait to use this one over the holidays for all those snow manis. This is two coats over nude nails and also over Blue Realm. I did both so you could see the glitter payoff. This formula was also fab.

All in all, a varied mix of polish this round from RWT linked here. I hope to see way more pastels in future as I'm now in love with the feel of their pastels. I'm also super stoked about that glitter topper. If you're in the market for a new brand, you have to check out this gem of a company!!!!

Cheers all,

Gradient Stamping Deco

Loving this look I did a while back for its Art Deco feel. It was easy enough too, as I simply stamped with BM-609 separately with Konad White on the tips and Nabi Sky at the cuticle. My base is two coats of Sally Hansen Mousseline, which I'm really loving lately as an art base. Once done I matted this one for the subtle effect.

I really should try this again, maybe in winter or holiday colours. Abstract Holiday!

Cheers all,
