Swatch: Bondi New York - Uptown Girl

Hi ladies! I have a new brand to introduce you to today, Bondi New York. As always, before we get into the swatches, let's find out a little about the brand!
Bondi New York is a collection of 20 fashion forward colours which will be launched twice a year as well as four limited edition collections! All Bondi New York nail polishes are 5-free, which means they are free from formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, camphor, DBP and toluene and are currently available via select on line retail partners, as well as bondinewyork.com. The best part? 100% of the net profit (after costs) is donated to our non-profit which makes grants to organisations like Food Bank for New York City. So not only can you buy yourself a pretty new nail polish or two...you can actually feel good about doing so because you're in turn helping out people in need!

Housed in a similar bottle to Nars, Bondi New York has a rubberised top for easy grip, that I recently found out is detachable, like those of Butter London caps if you're struggling with the size. The formula of the polish was also incredible, it applied effortlessly and is extremely pigmented, especially being such a pastel shade. The polish I am wearing is two coats of Uptown Girl - a gorgeous medium toned Lilac creme, without a top coat. As you can see, even without the application of a top coat, Bondi New York polishes dry to a high-gloss finish.



I was originally told Bondi New York polishes were only to be available in the US directly from Bondi New York, but I am pleased to announce international retailer, Harlow & Co. are now stocking all 20 shades of Bondi New York which are priced at $15 for 15ml of product, a little bit steep in price but worth it for the sheer quality of these polishes! Make sure you stay up to date with Bondi New York by following them on both Facebook and Twitter! Also, if you enter code Blog5 at the checkout on bondinewyork.com you will receive $5 off of your order!
