As many of you know that most indie polishes are from the US and Australia, they are so many awesome creations out there which sometimes can be a little mind boggling and perhaps detrimental to the wallet? I know mine is! Haha! But today I am going to introduce to you a Brazilian indie brand, Penelope Luz, created by Luciana Franco. And if you have not ventured in to Penelope Luz website you probably didn’t know that she is actually a blogger with gorgeous professional looking swatches. Though her blog is in Portuguese which I can’t read or understand, a picture tells a thousand words isn’t it?
Tendresse which I think is a French word actually means fondness or tenderness. It is a tinted grey jelly base packing with fuchsia, green, blue, gold and silver square and hex glitters and iridescent shimmers. The consistency was a little thick but not problematic at all. This is not meant to be used on its own so I painted 1 coat over 2 coats of Catrice Squeeze Me (greenish-grey). Topcoat was added.
I enjoyed the colour combinations and certainly will look forward to trying more Penelope Luz’s nail polishes.
Tendresse was generously provided by Mei Mei Signatures for my honest review.
