Pirate Polish "Love In A Cold Climate" collection swatches (Valentine's Day 2013)

I'm thrilled to announce the release of the Pirate Polish "Love In A Cold Climate" collection for Valentine's Day 2013! This collection is a set of four polishes, and I think there is something here for everyone. 


Left to right: Be Mine, Lovandula, Cinnamon Girl, Love In A Cold Climate 



First up is Be Mine, a soft candy pink creme peppered with fine golden accents: subtle golden flakes and tiny golden holographic sparkles. By far the most demure polish of the collection, this lacquer fits the bill if you're looking for something soft and sweet, and yet it has more going on than your standard pink pastel. Be Mine is opaque in two coats.





Lovandula is the perfect lavender glitter bomb; tiny purple holographic glitter, bubblegum pink hexagonal glitter, an abundance of diamond-shaped lavender glitter, and large silver holographic hex glitter. For such a cute looking polish, this lacquer definitely packs a big holographic punch. Lovandula is shown below, two coats over a purple creme.


Lovandula also conveniently doubles as a disco ball, in case of impromptu Valentine's Day dance parties...




Cinnamon Girl is a scorchingly bright red jelly, teeming with red glitter in every imaginable shape and size. It also features tiny silver holo glitter, which adds extra depth and sparkle. I really love the idea of red-on-red when it comes to combining a red jelly with red glitters. While opaque by itself in three coats, this polish can also be layered over a dark vampy shade to bring out more contrast between the base colour and the red glitter. I'll be sure to show you swatches of what Cinnamon Girl looks like layered in the coming days.






Love In A Cold Climate is this collection's namesake, and is notable for its abundance of icy blue and white hearts. It also contains a wide range of bright blue and snowy white glitters in various shapes and sizes, as well as tiny iridescent blue square glitters. Here I've shown two coats of Love In A Cold Climate over a deep blue creme.




I'm happy to announce that this collection will also be available in miniatures. The set of four minis is priced at $18 ($5 individually), while the set of four full-size polishes costs $36 ($10 individually). 


These polishes are currently in stock at the Pirate Polish Etsy store, and are limited edition for Valentine's Day. For more information, and to stay up to date on new releases, check Pirate Polish out on Facebook.

    1. Thank you, Vivi! Have I ever told you that you have an incredibly awesome name? Every time I see your comments, I always think "Vivi Lemieux" sounds like old school Hollywood glamour, or something. Maybe the femme fatale in a classic noir movie? It's cool, anyways! :D

    2. Haha thank you so much! Sadly my username is just inspired by a University building at the U of A I used to pass by everyday in combination with my real first name. By the way I gave in and bought "Be Mine" because I just couldn't take it anymore lol. I have been dying to try out your polishes and I am quite annoyed at myself for missing out on Sugar Cookies in the Holiday collection. >.< Anywho, I am super excited for them to arrive! :D
