Alanna Renee Swatches and Review!

Alanna Renee Cosmetics is the brainchild of Alanna from Pretty Purple Polish, and she has just released her second collection. Today I have 1 from that collection and 2 from her first collection.

From the new Magical World collection, which is Harry Potter themed, I have Avada Kedavra. Now, I don't know very much about Harry Potter, but I do know that this polish is awesome! Bright but not neon green base with small white and bigger white matte hex glitters. This was a lot of fun to wear, I love the base colour.

And from the first collection, Reptar. This polish is exactly how a Reptar-themed polish should be. Pale green base, with some micro glitters in black, white, and a neon yellowy/green, along with larger red and purple hex glitter.

And lastly, Black Cherry. And out of the three this was my favourite- and I love me some greens. Black Cherry has a dark, rich red jelly base and is packed with red glitter in all sort of sizes.

The formula one these is a little on the thick side, and for that reason, these swatches are all only 2 coats. Very easy to manage formula despite being thicker. Every swatch has a coat of SV, but Reptar did need a second after a day of wear. And, Black Cherry did stain my nails a little as well, so I may double up on base coat next time. None of the glitters were hard to fish out or place, nor did they need to be dabbed on.

Alanna has some very unique colours in her line, go check them out!

Until Next Time,

  1. Were the red glitters hard to catch in Reptar? The polish looks amazing, especially the first one!

  2. OMG Black Cherry looks absolutely gorgeous! :)
