BLOOM Alessandra & Miss Connie II

I have the 2 most divine colored polishes for you today and they are made by Australian company, Bloom. Bloom polishes are priced here on the expensive side: $19.95 each or Bloom sometimes has a websale on them at 2 for $29. At first I *semi* dismissed them as my frugal nature refuses to pay that kind of money for 1 bottle of polish, but after giving in a couple of times I have realised that their colors are gorgeous and formula is wonderful.


Case in point, Miss Connie 2. This is a bright Tomato Red that's in ya face bright! Shockingly bright and shockingly awesome! I loved this color on sight and it was opaque in 2 coats. Just yum.

And a gorgeous Dark Blue Jelly called Alessandra. This rivals any Lippmann jelly and this was 2 coats. I don't like my jelly's totally opaque so I always do 2...but most would prefer a 3rd coat of this.

Both colors dried with a high gloss sheen which I appreciate in a polish, as so many branded colors end up with a satin or semi-matte finish and need a top coat to give it a gloss. No nail art today as I was swatching.
Unfortunately for my International followers, Bloom is not available to outside of Australia buyers...but us Aussies can purchase them in any Myer or Target store as well as on their website: bloomcosmetics.com.au.

    I usually like 3 coats for jellies, but this one is gorgeous at 2 coats :)

  6. Hi there.
    I'm an Aussie living in the Uk and madly missing Bloom cosmetics. I just found a Bloom display in Superdrug stores, thought I'd mention it incase you had UK readers who wanted this stuff :)

  7. That Blue is out of this world. O_O love it.


Thanks so much for commenting! I read each and every one, even if I am slow to respond sometimes!
