The Great Aussie Polish Challenge Days 3&4: Savvy and Australis

Back to The Great Aussie Polish Challenge, yay! Time for some more Aussie polish brands... today I've picked 2, Savvy and Australis, to make up for the lack of Aussie polish yesterday.

Savvy is a brand owned by Priceline, the major chain beauty store/pharmacy in Australia. For the longest time they just had a handful of blah pinks, reds and neutrals, but suddenly they introduced a massive range of awesome colours for a bargain - I can't remember exactly how much but I think they were about $3 each. Score!

This is the shade that caught my eye immediately - Flaming Blue is a semi-sheer dark cobalt base with what looks to me like green and blue shimmer particles. It's been sitting in my untrieds for a while, along with Essence Blue Addicted, and they go together beautifully:



Application was 3 easy coats. I was very impressed by the colour and quality. Looking forward to seeing what colours they'll put out next!

The next day I added Australis Speck-tacular.


Australis Speck-tacular is just that - spectacular! It's a multicoloured flakie topcoat that shows its colours best over a dark base (see my post here on underwear for flakies). It makes your nails look like glimmering opals.

Check out all the other great Aussie brands my challenge-mates picked!
