NEW POLISH RELEASES

Bella Belle Nail Couture have released a new trio, Shades of Grey with three grey cremes for $27, available now.
Two Birds Lacquer
An upcoming release for Two Birds Lacquer, their Floral State-ment collection, celebrates Australia's unique and wonderful native flowers.
Gloss 'n Sparkle
Gloss n Sparkle are having a 20% off sale for their discontinued shades this weekend!! Simply use the code "bargain" at the checkout.
Also, Gloss n Sparkle are happy to announce that they will also be stocking with color4nails in the USA, with the first order in production, soon to be on its way.
Celestial Cosmetics have given us the heads up that their recent Electric You collection is selling well, with only a few bottles left of each colour. There will be one small restock of this collection, but unfortunately Singularity will not be back.
Helen Mather won the Celestial Cosmetics birthday contest in April, and below are swatches of the two polishes she designed, Tektite (a green jelly packed with green glitters) and Cydonia Nights (a brown jelly with various brown glitters).
Celestial Cosmetics will also have a new collection in August, and we will have more information about that release as soon as swatches are ready.
