Pacifica 7-Free Nail Polishes - Review & Swatches
Pacifica is a brand that are mainly known for their exotic fragrances, but did you know that they also do a range of makeup as well? I reviewed their bestselling Solar Colour Mineral Palette last year (click here if you missed it) and I've been curious to try more of their cosmetics ever since. A few weeks ago, a package of their 7-free Nail Polishes arrived on my doorstep and I couldn't wait to try them out!

Pacifica prides itself on being cruelty-free and all of their products are also suitable for vegans to use, so I wasn't surprised to see that their Nail Polishes are 7-free (formulated without Parabens, Phthalates (dibutyl phthalate), Toluene, Xylene, Camphor, Formaldehyde and Resin). The bottles have a contemporary square design and feature the brand's seashell/beach themed print in gold wrapped around the lid which I think looks super cute. But as always, it's what's inside that counts and these nail polishes are certainly on a par quality-wise with many of its mainstream counterparts. 

The brush is a good size (slightly thinner and smaller than some other brands, which allows for a more precise application), and the polish glides on smoothly for a richly pigmented level of coverage in just two coats. They took a little longer than expected to fully dry, but the results were definitely worth it with a beautiful glossy finish, even without the top coat.

Pink Moon is a pale pastel pink that has just enough brightness to it to make it stand out from the other nude-pinks that I have in my nail polish collection. It applied easily in just two coats for an opaque true-to-the-bottle colour. A good one to try for Spring!

Drift, on the other hand, is one of those gorgeous, super easy-to-wear mauvey taupes that always seems to go with practically any outfit. Like Pink Moon, this one also applied nicely in two coats and had an even glossier finish to it.  I really love the subtle purple undertones and if you look closely, it has the tiniest hint of iridescent shimmer that makes it even more pretty.

Pacifica Gloss Top & Base Coat*
I also tested out the Gloss Top & Base Coat which provided a lovely smooth base for the polish, and finished it off with a slick of shiny gloss for a gel-like look. I noticed that I got around 2-3 days worth of wear when I wore the polishes on their own before I started to see some chipping occur, but with this Top Coat, you can definitely stretch it out to an extra day or so which isn't too bad for a more natural formula!

Pacifica Nail Polishes (13.3ml, RRP £9.99 each) are available from
