Penelope Luz Swatches & Review 1 of 2 & Live Swatch


Today I'm sharing with you some polishes by Penelope Luz. This new-to-me brand is available for purchase at Hypnotic Polish. 😊  

I actually received 10 of the Penelope Luz polishes but am sharing with you the first 5, look for the next 5 in the very near future.

As always, when I get a chance to try a new brand, I do like to provide some info about the polishes/brand and my thoughts on them before getting into the pictures.


So here they are:

- each cylindrical bottle of polish is 10 ml, made in Brazil, vegan, cruelty-free, 10-free and comes in a white paper box with cute makeup detailing
- the shiny black cap house a flat curve brush with bristles that lay nicely on the nail when applying
- the formulas are smooth and apply easily
- the bottles have almost no obstructions to see each beautiful polish, only the one label with a clear backing

Overall I think the polishes are really nice and I appreciate the attention to the details. 😊


Ok, each swatch is 2 coats unless otherwise stated and no top coat. Let's get into the pictures!

First up, Pretty Woman is a pale pink crelly with iridescent flakies and holo glitters. I've seen other swatches of this one and with 3 coats it provides a more opaque coverage but I thought 2 coats was nice and ethereal. 
I actually wore this one as a full mani for almost 3 days and I felt like a princess. 
It was gorgeous and subdued. 💕

Evening Dress is a black jelly with rainbow holo glitters and flakies in different shapes and sizes.
Definitely a fun glittery one to wear. It does dry very textured so make sure to use a layer or 2 of top coat to smooth it out.
Shown here in 3 coats.

Ready to Dance is a purple metallic silver magnetic holo glitter nail polish. 
This one is quite shiny and pretty. 

Pearlecent Nails is a sheer pink iridescent shimmer polish. I used this in my pink iridescent shimmer floral nail art and I truly loved it. I used it over a black polish on my pinky and some pastel polishes to see what the effects would be like and I must say, having it over the black and the red (last photo in this set and also the base of my nail art mentioned above) was really beautiful. Over the lighter colours, it definitely provided a playful shimmer.

1 coat over black brought out the green/blue/purple beautifully.

The pink/gold/orange really came out when I did the one coat over a red base.

And finally, Vanity is a magnetic multichrome with iridescent flakies. What a beauty! 😍

Well there you have it! The first 5 of 10 Penelope Luz polishes that I have to share with you. 😊 Let me know if you have a favourite in the comments below.
