CF Beauty Cosmetics - Swatch & Review (Part 1)

A couple days ago I was contacted by Cláudia on behalf of her very own new cosmetics and beauty line: CF Beauty Cosmetics.

She has launched her first nail polish collection for a 2015 Spring/Summer edition and the colours are all gorgeous to look at.

I was quite happy to swatch and review some polishes she sent me. I'll be showing you two today and two more tomorrow ;)

CF Nº3 Portuguese Breakfast

Let's start off with CF Beauty Cosmetics Nº3 Portuguese Breakfast.
I don't much get the name but I'm too mesmerized by the colour and formula quality to bother ;)

spring nails

It's a gorgeous shimmery aqua shade, fully bright under direct light and slightly darker in the shade.
The brand promises two coats for full opacity and two coats it is.
(Although I have to say one coat would be enough on shorter nails and if you're on a hurry - the coverage is awesome!)

The shimmer on this beauty is quite something and it adds just the right touch without being overpowering.
Of course with such a shade, I had only one nail art look in mind:

I thought seashells would go perfect with this shade and I was right - you're looking at the perfect Summer look, ladies ;)

The other shade I've got for you today is the complete opposite:

CF Nº8 Stop Whining

This is CF Beauty Cosmetics Nº8 Stop Whining - the name to this one, I do understand. 
This polish will remind you of a very elegant wine shade, I'd say it's a great candidate for this year's Pantone Marsala ;)
And will you please look at how gorgeous this polish makes my nails (and skin) look?

Again, you're seeing two coats and what I loved most about it was there was no cuticle flood - you know how dark polishes tend to do that and be hard to remove?
No problem of the kind with this one :)

Also, and still on the formula of these polishes: they dry in 3/4 minutes (talking about two thin coats here) and they are quite shiny on their own - I applied no topcoat for the swatches, as I never do anyway.

I went for a more elegant nail art look with this one, because how could I not!?
I applied tiny pearl studs on a upside triangle shape and I felt ready to attend to a fancy cocktail party :)

Overall, I was quite pleased and surprised to swatch and review such great, beautiful nail polishes.

Not only that, they are 4 Free and their brush is just my type: flat and wide; my nails bow down to such brush shape ;)

They also claim to use a nitrocellulose compost on their formula which prevents yellowing (us, nail bloggers sure love to hear that) and the polishes also have a solar filter to prevent the polish to fade in the sun - quite useful for the season.

All polishes are minis (you get 8ml/.28fl oz per bottle) and they retail for €1.99, which considering the colours and the formula quality is a really good price.

You can purchase the new CF Beauty Cosmetics Spring/Summer 2015 from their official website (PT).
