A while back, I’d heard of a new website, Ninja Polish, where I could get hard-to-find indie and other brands of nail polish that were tough to spot in stores. I was excited, and popped over to check it out.
Although I haven’t made a purchase through the site yet – the ones I want are always sold out, but I WILL get me a bottle of Floam one day! I will! – I still regularly check it out and see what’s for sale. They sell brands like Layla, Nail-Venturous, Glitter Gal and Hits.
Now, the “Ninjas” of Ninja Polish – Rhonni and Steph – have taken their ninja polish moves to the next level, and are going to offer their own line of polish!
Ninja Polish is releasing its premier polish line, called the Facets Collection, on August 15th. It’s a three-piece set of color-shifting glitters that bear the names of beautiful gemstones. Zultanite, Alexandrite and Color-Changing Garnet are already listed on the Ninja Polish website, but will officially go on sale August 15 for $11 per polish.
Because Rhonni and Steph launched their collection at Cosmoprof North America with us bloggers in attendance, and they made up small gift bags for us, I have swatches of Zultanite to share with you today.
Zultanite by itself, two coats:
Two coats over Jesse’s Girl Carolina Beach:
I thought, hmm. This isn’t special, not like it looks in the bottle! Then I decided to follow the ladies’ words of advice: Zultanite looks ideal over black to show its true colors. I put it over Anise Black Label:
Oh, holy cow. NOW we’re talking!
Zultanite is described by the Ninja ladies as a soft gold that shifts to an amazing green, and I love the amber hues to it, too. It is absolutely a stunning, color-dancing shade that pays a nice homage to its namesake gemstone.
Check out all three polishes here on the Ninja Polish site.
I hope the polish ninjas do something similar with the stone, labradorite – here’s a link to see what labradorite is! Read here to learn more about its “healing properties,” which is why I always hold a labradorite when I fly!
Similarly, you can find information about Zultanite here, Alexandrite here and Garnet here.
I would go on and on about my love of gemstones and their unique healing properties but this is already a pretty long post. And I still have one more polish to share! The ladies also gave us a bottle of their best selling polish, Sticks ‘n Stones by Cover Band. It was in a Ninja Polish bottle though. Here’s swatches of it by itself:
And Sticks ‘n Stones over Jesse’s Girl Carolina Beach, too:
Sticks ’n Stones is a pretty white and black glitter combo in a clear base that looks great over Carolina Beach! It can be found here on the Ninja site, for $9.
So what do you think of Zultanite? Is your interest piqued in this new nail polish line? Share your thoughts below!
