Celestial Cosmetics Seven Kingdoms Collection

Monday, October 21, 2013

Hi folks!

Have I mentioned how much I love Game of Thrones and the Song of Ice and Fire book series? No? Well Color4Nails, your friendly US based indie eCommerce has collaborated with Celestial Cosmetics, an Australian indie brand to create the Seven Kingdoms Collection.

There are four multichrome shades and five thermals and I have five shades to show you today.

 Mother of Dragons. Two coats. A bright flashy multichrome which is predominately red with flashes of orange and a more pinky fuchsia. Minimal brush strokes, nice opacity.

 A Lannister Always Pays His Debt. A sheer yellow thermal with holo sparkle. Three coats over white. When exposed to extreme cold, it turns bright orange.

 House Arryn. A sheer cornflower blue thermal with holo sparkle. Three coats over white, turns to purple when exposed to extreme cold.

 Sapphires of Tarth. Two coats. This was so hard to capture, which is why I don't have my nice normal white background! It's a very flashy blue to purple multichrome. A little bit of brushstroke, not a big deal.

This last beauty is Iron Born. Three coats. It deserves three pictures. The first is warm, outdoors under the sun so that you can see the nice bit of holographic effect. The second is also outdoors so that you can see the thermal effect. When warm, it is a dusty lavender but once cooled it is a smokey taupe. The last shot is indoors and cold. I love this shade because it's very unusual, both as a thermal and as a holographic polish.

The multichromes and Iron Born really won my heart. I liked the other two thermals as well but it took a pretty big temperature change to see the "cold" color. Usually when I wash my hands, the cool water is enough to trigger it but I didn't see a change even running it under the coldest tap water, only when holding ice cold items right against the nail.

The Seven Kingdoms Collection is now available at Color4Nails priced at $12 each. Color4Nails also stocks many other international brands including indies from all over the world. Be sure to follow Color4Nails on Facebook and Instagram to catch the latest news and swatches!
