Indy's Indies Swatch and Review - Belle & The Snowman

Indy's Indies The SnowmanIndy's Indies Belle

Indy's Indies is a new brand to me - but I love matte glitters and circle glitters so when I saw her range I just *had* to try some! Today I'm showing you Belle, a mix of yellow and brown glitters, and The Snowman - black and white circles with shards of orange.

Let's start by looking at The Snowman:

The Snowman has large white circles, smaller black circles and shards of orange in a clear base. There's lots of glitter in this polish, definitely no need for fishing to get glitter on your nails! I found The Snowman very easy to apply and I loved the effect it created over this dark blue (Rescue Beauty Lounge Dead Calm, my favorite dark blue ever, sadly discontinued now.) I finished this off with a coat of Gelous and Seche Vite quick drying top coat - you do need at least a couple of coats of topcoat over The Snowman to get a smooth finish as the circle glitters are quite substantial.

A bold design like this probably doesn't need a macro, but here's one anyway! Even if it's just to show I didn't do clean up, lol! Those of you who have Dead Calm will know this polish is impossible to clean up - it's best not to even try!

The other shade I want to share today is Belle. This is a super mix of deep and bright yellow circles and hexes, with the odd yellow flower and a sprinkle of deep brown hex glitter. I'm wearing Belle over a gradient of Lilypad Lacquers In The Milky Way and Enchanted Polish I'm Kind of a Big Deal. Again, the glitters in Belle are very generous and the polish applied very easily. As usual, I used a coat of Gelous to smooth the glitter and Seche Vite to finish off.

I'm really pleased with these two polishes - I'm giving this brand a big thumbs up! I have another couple of Indy's Indies glitters I'll be posting about soon.

I purchased The Snowman and Belle from Indy's Indies Etsy Shop. The other polishes are all from my personal collection.


  1. Belle looks stunning over that gradient, what a pretty manicure! Fab pics as always x x
