Ellison's Organics Swatches and Review



I have a "new-to-me" indie brand to show you tonight-Ellison's Organics.  Ellison's Organics has been in business making natural and organic bath and body and nail polish since 2012. In her polish descriptions, it says, 
- 3-Free, which means no formaldehyde, toluene, or DBP. - tinted with natural oxide
- vegan; not made with any animal by-products
- cruelty free
- gluten free, paraben free, bpa free
- made in the USA with products purchased from other USA small businesses
I Pink I'm In Love is a frosty pink polish.  I used two coats and had no issues.  

On the Town is a gorgeous brick red cream.  It was two easy coats and it dried quickly.  
This was my favorite of the bunch!

A Mermaid's Tale is a sheer aqua base with medium sized hex aqua glitter.  I will say that I wasn't sure how to wear this one. I decided to wear it on its own and I needed 4+ coats to get it slightly opaque.  
The base was very thin and did not hold onto the glitter well, so I had to fish for every piece of glitter on my nails.

Do You Believe in Magic is also a sheer purple base with large purple circle glitters and some smaller hex glitters.  The base was pretty thin on this one too; however, I was able to get the smaller glitters out, but did fish for all of the larger ones.  
I used 4+ coats on this one as well to make it as opaque as possible.  It may look better over a darker color.

Parting Thoughts:  I have mixed reviews on Ellison's Organics.  I LOVED her cream polish and the frosted one had zero issues as well. I perused her shop and saw some great looking creams and metallics.  As far as the glitters go, the base on these were so thin, it was hard to get the glitters out of the bottle and the color was very sheer.

Price:  $9.50- $10.95
