There's another brand new Canadian indie polish maker! Trust Fund Beauty opened in February 2014 and I was fortunate to receive polishes for review; this is Trust Fund Beauty Sex Tape!
Started with two coats of Trust Fund Sex Tape with an accent of one coat of FingerPaints Black Expressionism. Trust Fund Sex Tape is a rich, hot pink creme that was very opaque; I probably could have gotten away with one coat if I had have been more careful with my application. The formula consistency was great and I had no problems with the brush.
Trust Fund Beauty is the creation of Samara Granofsky; the polishes are 5-free. They have a variety of tongue in cheek collections like Prenup, Heiress and Scandal featuring an assortment of finishes. When I was browsing the site, I found this page that has an interview with Samara that I thought was a pretty interesting read and explains the thoughts behind the brand. I really liked that they have a sample trio that sells for $10 for the times when you can't just make up your mind which colours to buy!
As I was putting Sex Tape on my nails, I knew I wanted to do mani to go along with the edgy vibe of the polish brand which is why there is the black accent nail. Added KB Shimmer U Rock My Heart on top of accent finger. I heart this look so much! While I top coated the accent finger once the glitter was added, the rest of the fingers are topcoat free and still have lots of shine!
But was going for a edgy vibe,so once the base polish was dry, stamped using JR-14 using FUN black stamping polish.
Topped with SV to finish. This is when I had a d'uh moment in that it hardly makes sense to use a 5 free product and then use SV to topcoat! But it is my topcoat of choice 99% of the time simply because it is so fast drying.
Despite the oversight, I am pleased to report that even though I did this, there was no shrinking or any weird reaction like I know SV has with sometimes other 5 free products.
Trust Fund Beauty also has a monthly subscription box service; there are details on the box service on their site; polishes are $15 for 17 ml; they also have 5 ml trio packs for $10. New products will being offered; in fact, just yesterday a new matte collection was added!
Have a great weekend and thanks for looking!
