Toya-Jade Polish Swatches & Review

Toya-Jade is a new Aussie indie brand that just launched in March this year. I have 5 of them to show you today.

These are all mini bottles. The first thing I noticed is that the brushes are a good size, and are generally quite firm and splay well, making application easy.

Black Star is black with a fine, scattered holographic finish. This is 3 coats for full opacity.

Silver Lights is silver foil. In the bottle it has some fine multi-coloured particles, but they're not noticeable on the nail. This is 3 coats, but there is still some VNL.

Shandy is my favourite out of all of these. It's a pale taupe with a gold to pink shift. It was quite thick and gloopy, but it levelled out nicely. It also dries somewhat matte. This is 3 coats with top coat.

Mystic is a shimmery purple with a very scattered, fine holographic shimmer, and what looks like small holographic glitter. It's hard to tell because the base is so pigmented, it tends to cover up the glitter. This is 2 coats.

Christine is another favourite. It's a super bright fluro pink with a foily, shimmery finish. It reminds me of Pretty Serious The Pink One, but with more particles. The brush on this one was really stiff, and combined with a thick formula, it made the application difficult and streaky. I found I had to dab, rather than brush, it on. This one dries a bit matte as well, so this is 3 coats with top coat.

Toya-Jade polishes are available from the Toya-Jade etsy store, and cost $5.50 for an 8ml mini bottle. It doesn't look like there are full size bottles available. All Toya-Jade polishes are 3 free.
