The Nail Arcade UK Indie Polish Store: Serum No 5 Pretty In Pastel

I am so excited that it is becoming easier to get Indie nail polishes in the UK.The wonderful Rachel has set up a store called The Nail Arcade which will stock loads of great Indie brands that are harder to get here!

One of the brands that will be stocked is Serum No 5. This is a brand I have lusted after a while but never owned anything by... until now.

This beauty is Pretty In Pastel and like all Serum polishes it comes in this elegant little box. You can get both mini and full sized bottles from the Nail Arcade and the mini bottles are just too cute!

Pretty In Pastel is a mix of satin matte pastel hex glitter in a iridescent silvery base. This polish can be worn alone but also layered making it very versitile.  In my photos I have one coat of PIP over Barry M Lemon Ice Cream, Sinful Colours Sinfulshine polish in Alfresco, unknown shade by Glam and piCture pOlish Hiney Dew. Over the green it reminds me a bit of Whimsical by Revlon.

Application PIP was easy, I used the dabbing method to get a nice even coverage with the glitter but there was no need to fish for the hex's. For some reason this polish reminds me of mermaids, I think it almost looks like colourful fishscales!  This is the perfect polish to create not only accent nails but full manicures! Plus I can see the base colour options are endless. I think this would just as pretty over a darker base colour too!

The Nail Arcade opens for UK shopper tomorrow at 10am. You can follow them on Facebook and the shop is here .

Also don't forget you can win some Serum No 5 Polishes donated by The Nail Arcade (amongst other amazing prizes) by entering my giveaway!
