Cmhandmadeuk Swatches

I was lucky enough to be sent a couple of polishes from cmhandmadeuk for swatching. These were my 1st polishes from this UK indie brand but I can definitely say they won't be my last.

I got some clear nail polish from eBay £2.99 +99p postage for 6 - I love these heart bottles!

I then used polishes from my models own collection. I wanted to make sure I had a blue, yellow, orange, green, pink and purple so the polish for tans and festival collections were perfect for this.

I put 5 drops of polish in to get the shade I wanted but you can play around with this. It looks like it's never going to make a tint but give it a good shake and job done!

They look a bit cloudy in the bottle but are perfect on the nail.

I did a few swatch sticks to try th…
