Happy Saturday!! Fun weekend plans?
So here I am swatching yet another indie brand, this time called My Ten Friends. The shades I have are Alien Invasion and Pew! Pew! Pew! (which cracks me up to no end).
My Ten Friends is a brand that can be found on Etsy but also Overall Beauty. They are big-3 free and cruelty free.
Let’s dig in!
Alien Invasion has a silvery white base and includes red, silver, white glitter, holo micro-glitter and larger holo silver and red hex glitter. Hmm. While I like the idea behind this one, it didn’t really work for me. The base looks extremely frosty to me and it was thick and a bit hard to work with. What I am impressed with though is how the glitter, even the larger pieces, didn’t all sink to the bottom. I didn’t really have to shake it up to get all sizes and shapes onto my nail. Another great thing is the glitter didn’t all wipe off and go to the tip of my nails with the second coat. That’s a HUGE pet peeve of mine with glitters, but none of that here!

Pew! Pew! Pew! has a blue/green shimmery base and is packed with red and gold glitter from micro-sized to large hex sized. On it’s own is has a fairly sheer base, so I like it best layered. I love the color combo and glitter shapes and sizes in this one. Great formula, no movement of glitter with the second coat and no furiously shaking the bottle to get it to come out.

Once this sucker gets layered things gets crazy delicious! Look how amazing this is. I drool. I was staring at my hand for ages when I did this, sigh. Gorgeous.
Overall: This seems like a really great brand with super fun glitter and color combos. The formula is really great, one of my favorite ones thus far that has large chunks in it. Glitters that are easy to work with always amaze me. They CAN be good afterall! I really love Pew! Pew! Pew!, excellent shade. And as a side note, I love the bottle shape, super cute.
