Grace-full Nail Polish True Blue Collection Swatches and Review, Part 1

Grace-full Nail Polish will be breaking in their new US website on Sunday, February 14 at 7PM CST with a lovely collection inspired by things typically Australian - the True Blue Collection. Australia has many landmarks to chose from and Theresa's picks resulted in some stunning polishes! (My post of the second half of the collection can be found here.) Let's check them out after the break...

Grace-full Nail Polish Barrier Reef Coral inspiration

Barrier Reef is a cyan shimmer with a slight shift to green with red and indigo holographic microglitters. I wore it with four thin coats for maximum depth, but two or three would do for most people. This has a fantastic formula, and with top coat dries perfectly smooth! The glitters are also easy to remove. I can totally see the bright little reef critters flashing through the lustrous blue waters! See below for what Theresa has to say about this one:


Barrier Reef – I couldn’t get photos to show the depth of colour but this is a gorgeous perfect deep turquoise base based on the waters of the Great Barrier Reef, with tiny lavender and silver holo glitter and specks of crystal in purple.

Bondi Beach is an ocean boat blue with gold-to-blue duochrome microflakes and linear holo. This covers beautifully in two-to-three thin coats and has a metallic look to it. I love how Theresa captured both the ocean and the sand with this one via the gold flash to the shimmers.


Bondi Beach – is of course inspired by Bondi Beach. Bondi Beach or Bondi Bay is a popular beach and the name of the surrounding suburb in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Bondi Beach is a blue based linear holo with a metallic look that flashes green and gold in different lights which gives the polish an ocean look.

Cootamundra Wattle is a spring green with gold microflakes, holographic shimmer, and gold holographic flecks. It has a great formula and dries perfectly smooth in two to three very thin coats.


Cootamundra Wattle is based on the quintessential Australian colours of green and gold as seen in our national floral emblem the Golden Wattle. It is a yellow green-based linear holo with teeny gold holo glitter and gold flakes throughout.

Daintree is a metallic seaweed linear holo with turquoise-to-magenta duochrome microflakes. This has a gorgeous formula, and is opaque in two to three very thin coats.


Daintree – based on The Daintree Rainforest is a tropical rainforest region on the north east coast of Queensland, Australia north of Mossman and Cairns. Daintree is a linear holo green teal with a metallic look and specks of blue flecks throughout.
