New kid on the block: La Bella Vernice

La Bella Vernice ~ Tana & Brooklyn
Light green with shimmer and holo microglitter & Pink with shimmer and holo microglitter

Let me introduce you to one of the new indie brands on the block, La Bella Vernice! I was impressed even before I actually saw the polishes. They were packed in a little box and there was a neat card too; take a look: 

And here are the polishes out of the box. Promising, I must say.

I tried the green one first, Tana. A light shimmery green with holo microglitter. I do love a good shimmer! The formula was good, and it took two coats to achieve desired opacity. And I must admit that even though this isn’t usually the green I would go for, it does look pretty good on me (in all modesty, obviously!) Haha! 

Here’s two coats with one layer of Poshé topcoat:

The sun wasn’t cooperative, so these pictures are taken with flash to make the holo microglitter show it’s pretty face! 

I like the way the shimmer and the glitter look together!

Here it is from a different angle.

Let me show you the other polish, Brooklyn. 

The formula was just as good as the first one. Pigmentation was even better, it was actually opaque in one coat! Amazing, eh? I applied a second coat to see if it made a difference, but it didn’t. I sealed it with a layer of Poshé topcoat, and here’s the final mani: 

These pictures are also taken indoors and with flash.

It’s not a duochrome but it almost looks like it. Call it a polish with mani facets ;)

And one last picture, just because I like what I see:

The verdict:

These are great shimmer polishes, and I love the added holo microglitter. The polish applies easily and covers pretty good – the pink one is potentially a one coater. Drying time is average, not annoyingly slow and not gratifyingly fast.


  1. great holo shimmer in each bottle! I like the tender green on you, it looks gorgeously nice :)

    1. Thank you so much. I liked the pink better on me, but that's maybe because I need to get used to the green :)

  2. They are really pretty - it's a pity the green is so sheer...
    I love that card - i's perfect!

    1. It was well thought through with the card and the box - I really liked those details! :)

  3. Both of them look nice! Love the holo microglitter :)

    1. The hologlitter makes them stand out from the crowd, in my opinion :)
