Sayuri Nail Lacquer indie swatches and review

I hope you're not sick of Aussie indie polishes yet! Today I'm showing off some Sayuri Nail Lacquers, made by the multi-talented Anthea of Nailed Obsession. They are inspired by Japanese fashion styles, and I can totally imagine the girls I saw in Harujuku wearing these on their nails!




Oshare - Being a follower of 300-odd nail accounts on Instagram, it's hard for me to see something I've never seen before, but I was actually really surprised when I first saw Oshare. Since then a few polishes have come out with the big flower glitters, but this is my favourite so far. I love the bright pop art colours, and the clear base makes it very versatile.

I've seen a few manis with randomly placed glitters, so I decided to try something different and place the yellow flowers down the middle over Orly After Party. Although the flowers look a bit stiff in the close up photos, they're actually very thin and lie down quite flat on the nail.






Mizuiro - I love the muted blues in this glitter, but I found it really difficult to find a polish to use underneath that really complemented it. This is the best I found so far, China Glaze Stone Cold, but I'm not completely happy with it and will be trying out a few more combos.





Mori - The nature-inspired colours in this are gorgeous, and I knew this would be one of my favourites! I layered this over ulta3 Gold Rush Fever, and wore it to a blogger event where everyone asked me about it. The glitter in this one is a bit less dense than in the others.

Overall, my favourite thing about the Streets of Harujuku range by Sayuri Lacquer is that the polishes aren't the usual combinations of glitter I've come to expect from indie polishes. In particular, there are lots of polishes with unusual glitter shapes in them, which really become instant nail art when you layer them on your nail.

Each purchase of Sayuri polish also comes with the matching paper doll PDF, designed in collaboration with artist Laura Goodings - do you remember these? I loved playing with my Lenore one as a kid (um, a 16 year old kid). Here's the Mizuiro doll:


Best of all, Sayuri is on sale now until Mother's Day (this Sunday) - polishes are only $7.96 each. You can see the other polishes and purchase them here.
