FACE Stockholm - Nail Polish in 78 & 135

*some pictures were taken quite a while ago and some were recent, hope that explains some of the differences in how I show off the products

I know when I say this someone will want to strangle me but yay it's almost autumn!! This is a time when I usually like to wear darker shimmery shades or what you can call more 'vampy'.  The two colours that I am going to show you totally fit!

They go on like butter, smooth and pigmented! Two coats and it's perfection. I do get a bit of wear around the 3rd-4th day but usually by then I have the urge to change colours anyway! One thing I don't like is that there's no names, only numbers ho-hum.

#78 is an amazing dark shade of velvety purple with a hint of brown and plum. Now when I say brown it's not like it can be classified under that but instead it has a flash shimmer of golden speckles which makes this quite a unique colour.
I used 1 coat of Essie Grow Faster and 2 Coats of #78 and 1 coat of China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat.

excuse my ring finger haha! I had a tragedy.

#135 is a gorgeous forest emerald green. It is a shimmer colour so there is a bit of streakiness to it, but it's barely there. It goes on smooth and opaque in two coats. I have to say sorry, I took these pictures before when I had some weird dent in my nail and I feel it's all up in my face! But anyway...
I used 1 coat of Essie Grow Faster and 2 Coats of #135 and no topcoat if I remember correctly. It looks like I didn't really do a great job cleaning up either oopsies!! Before my cuticles were always bothering the heck out of me and greens/blues are the hardest to clean up so I think I just left a glorious mess for all to see.. my bad!

All in all, FACE Stockholm has some great polishes. I definitely will be looking to purchase a few more. On the plus side.. they are not that pricey at all.. only $12 for 0.5 fl oz / 15 ml ! :D

You can check out their selection here!! They have over 100 colours and finishes to choose from!

oh one thing as I know it bothers a few of my friends.. their regular polish bottles are rectangular but their holographic ones are round!!!

Until next time,


These products were given in exchange for my honest review.
