Hi everyone, today I have a very special new polish release to share with you all. April 25th is the third birthday of the Celestial Cosmetics nail polish brand- yay! Happy Birthday Celestial! As you all know, even before coming a blogger for Celestial Cosmetics, I absolutely loved their polishes. I can definitely say they are my favourite indie polish brand and they were one of my first indie polish purchases. Ever since discovering them, I have been hooked into the world of indie polish and I have purchased polishes from Nicki (the creator of Celestial Cosmetics) nearly every month since. I am obsessed with their holos and the monthly LE polishes. I cannot pass them up and may I say I have never, ever had an issue with any of their polishes! They have grown so much as a brand in three years and I can only see them rising further from here. So, again I would like to wish the Celestial Cosmetics brand and team a very happy third birthday, and I cannot wait to see what the future has in store!
This special third birthday collection was created in conjunction with Christine of Serenity Nails, an amazing Australian nail blogger and a good friend of Nicki’s. Together, they created six beautiful polishes for The Valyrio Collection, inspired by the Game of Thrones! The Valyrio Collection name is a twist on the language of the High Valyrian, spoken in Game of Thrones. I have five of the polishes to share with you today.
The first colour is ‘Dracarys; which translates literally into ‘dragon-fire’. It is a burnt red linear holo with golden shimmer and red micro glitter! Another stunning colour which I think is perfect for Autumn that is coming up in Australia as it reminds me of a fireplace! Two coats and no topcoat for my swatch.
The next polish is name ‘Daria Zaldrizoti’ which translates to ‘The Dragon Queen’. It is a bright red-pink-orange duo chrome with a strong flash! It is a very interesting colour, super bright it almost blinded my eyes and my camera freaked out photographing it. It is stunning in all different lights and the duo chrome is so strong it looks like you are wearing three different colours on your nails! My swatch shows two coats and no topcoat.
The third polish ‘Sesir Kipi’ which translates to ‘And now, we ride‘ is a gorgeous sapphire blue holo! Such a stunning blue with copious amounts of holo, this is a blue that everyone should have in their collection! Two coats and no topcoat.
‘Kastamiro Damior’ which translates into ‘Rains of Castamere’ is a simply stunning deep, almost blackened teal colour which has a strong green-blue-purple duochrome with lots of pretty shimmer! A very complex colour and is so gorgeous! This is two coats and no topcoat.
The last polish I will be sharing with you is named ‘Kirimvos’ which means ‘thank-you’. It is an emerald green holo with opal flakies! It is a truly beautiful colour and I just love it! Two coats and no topcoat.
Overall, I really , really, liked this collection. I do not religiously watch Game of Thrones, but I may have to get back into it after the excitement of this collection! I guess I expected dark, brooding colours- boy was I wrong! There are a variety of colours which are all so vibrant and which I believe really reflect the different aspects of the show, and as always the formulas are superb and did not need a topcoat to finish them off (this was my choice, but you could choose to topcoat if you wanted to for longevity of wear). My favourites for the collection are hard to choose as I really love them all, but as I am a sucker for blue holos I think I will have to go with ‘Sesir Kipi’ and because ‘Kirimvos’ is just so gorgeous I think I will have to pick that one too!
This collection will release on April 15th in the Australian store, and hopefully on April 22nd for the international store, if the polishes arrive there safely!
Game of Thrones collections are very popular and highly sought after, so you do not want to miss this one! Congratulations to Serenity Nails and Celestial Cosmetics on producing another wonderful collection! All the polishes are all amazing and definitely worthy of this special third birthday release.

Happy 3rd Birthday to Celestial Cosmetics and I wish you many more years of success. Nicki, you have done a great job not only on your polishes but your brand as a whole. My Celestial’s are my favourite polishes and I know I will continue to love them. It has been an honour to work with you this year and I can’t wait to see what you come up with next!
