The Great Aussie Polish Challenge Day 4 - Australis




The Great Aussie Polish Challenge continues for the 4th day and today I have for you Australis :) Australis can be purchased from various beauty department stores and if you are very lucky, like I was, from Target for a bargain price of $2.83. Why exactly $2.83, I do not know..it shall remain the mysterious markdown! I do have a look at Australis polishes when I pass them, but not a lot of the colors call to me. Australis Limited Edition 2 did call my name so here she is, and the to add some zing I jazzed her up with Australis Speck-tacular, the Aussie multi-colored flakie!

Australis Limited Edition #2 is a strange green nailpolish which I really like. It has a neon like glow sometimes or a dusky green look other times. It's strange and unusual which is just how I loves me polish! Speck-tacular is a lovely multi colored flakie. My bottle is a bit runny, so I wonder if I got a dodgy one or if they are all thin in consistency. I had no trouble  distributing the flakie goodness despite the thinness of the polish, so I guess it's no problem, LOL.
