My Handiwork Polish - Season 2 Collection

*Press Sample*
Hello! Today I have swatches of the Season 2 collection from My Handiwork Polish. This is Jasmine's second release, following on from the Villain Varnishes collection (swatched here). Season 2 consists of four polishes inspired by Jasmine's favourite TV shows - Once Upon A Time, Breaking Bad, Game Of Thrones, and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. I have all four to show you today. Read on for full swatches and more info!

'Once Upon A Time' is a topper full of holographic silver microglitter and black butterflies. I found it easy to get a butterfly out for each nail, but did fish around to get a couple more. They may stick up a bit, but easily bend to the nail if pushed down gently (either into the base or after topcoating). Below is one coat with topcoat over a bubblegum pink.

'Breaking Bad' is a shimmery metallic blue with blue circle glitters. The glitters do make it slightly thick, but nothing hard to work with. It is almost opaque in one coat (and might be on shorter nails), but I did need a second to cover some bald spots. This does dry down textured. Below is two coats and topcoat.

'Game Of Thrones' is a shimmery metallic bronze/brown. The formula is nice and smooth, and it is opaque in two easy coats. It applies with brushstrokes due to the finish, but they do disappear as it dries (which it does so fairly quickly). I'm not normally a brown person but I quite like this! Below is two coats and topcoat.

'It's Always Sunny' is a bright shimmery yellow. Again it is smooth and easy to work with, though applies with brushstrokes in the shimmer. Most disappear and level out nicely as it dries. The first coat is a bit streaky, but a second evens it out. I did add a quick third coat for a few bald spots on my longer nails. Below is three coats and topcoat.

What do you think? My overall favourite is 'Once Upon A Time', not only because I love the series but as the butterflies make it so unique. I can't say I've seen butterfly glitter in a polish before! Theme wise, I think 'Breaking Bad' is my favourite. You can definitely see the blue crystal meth inspiration. I also love 'It's Always Sunny' as I love yellow - basically, I can't decide!

You can find all four polishes from the Season 2 collection over on My Handiwork Polish's etsy store here. Each bottle is 10ml and retails for £4. Will you be picking any up?

Hope to see you in the next post!
