Celestial Cosmetics Avenge the Earth Collection


*Press Release.

Hi there everyone!!! Today I have a super amazing collection to share with you!!

As per my blog name I am a huge comic book fan, and my favourite character is Loki. I have been collecting Loki comics and figures since high school and have quite a little collex going on! I am a huge fan of many other Marvel comics too! 

So when I was approached by Celestial cosmetics to do a collaboration I was happy to help! And of course I wanted to do a marvel collection!!!!

Over the past month or so I have been working with Celestial Cosmetics to create a Marvel inspired collection and today I have "Avenge the Earth"collection, just in time for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

So lets check them out shall we??!!





You're All Puppets


You're all puppets, Is a pretty silver polish with a slight red shimmer. 
 In the comics Hank Pym from the Ant Man comics is the creator of Ultron, but in the movie it was Tony Stark and Bruce Banner who created Ultron. I wont go into details cause why you know..... Spoilers......... but as you can see, Ultron is a silver AI with a red glow which is just what I wanted to show in the polish.

Lighting Fast





Lighting Fast is a grey creme base filled with blue glitters and a silver shimmer. The character Quicksilver has the ability to run at super speeds. Peitro and Wanda Maximoff  in the movie were twins who were experimented on with Loki's staff by Hydra. Again I wont go into details "spoilers".
This polish only needed 2 coats for coverage. I loved the glitter pay off and there was no dabbing needed at all.

On Your Left



On your Left, is a bright blue holographic polish. The saying "on your left"is actually from Captain America Winter Soldier, as he said it every time he ran past Falcon when jogging. I always chuckled at that scene and wanted to use the saying!

Mjolnir



Mjolnir is actually the name of Thor's Hammer but as we already have a silver coloured polish I figured that a red silver and blue polish would be great. Blue really is not a thor thing in the movies but in the comics Thor does have blue on his costume. Plus the combo goes great with "on your left"polish! The polish is a glitter bomb. this can be worn by itself or as a topper on a base colour.I used one coat as a topper and the sponge method when using the polish by itself.

The Sponge method for glitters is a great way to get full coverage for glitters. Here are some quick steps on how to get good application.

Step 1- Pop on a quick base coat of colour. I used one coat of You're All Puppets. Then using Loki's Nail Aprons protect your skin to avoid too much clean up.


















Step 2- Take a make up sponge and paint some of the glitter polish on the sponge.















Step 3-  Dab the glitter loaded sponge onto your nail. Repeat the process on each nail and then repeat over the nails again until you get opacity.














Step 4- Remove the nail aprons and clean up any odd glitters with a clean up brush and acetone. Apply top coat.
















Hulkbuster


The Hulkbuster Armour or "Veronica"as Tony Stark calls it,is specialised suit to fight The Hulk. As with all Iron Man suits they are shiny Red and gold. I love Iron Man's quick wit, he is maybe my second favourite character in the MCU. 
Hulkbuster is a red polish with a slight orange/gold shift and gold micro glitters. depending on the light it has a slight pinkish hue as well. I used 2 coats for coverage.

Nothing Lasts Forever



Nothing Lasts Forever is a quote from Black widow. She was a killer for hire but has since joined the avengers. Trained in the Russian Red Room she is an skilled fighter and assassin.
Black and red seemed to go hand and hand for the Black Widow so a black jelly with red micro glitter is a perfect combo!! I used 3 coats for coverage, but you could use 1 coat over black to get a good coverage too!!

Never Miss a Shot.


Never miss a Shot is a deep blackened purple holographic polish. The colour depicts old school Hawkeye as well as the movie version which costume is more black than anything else. This colour is a real hail to all versions of hawkeye!
I used 2 coats for full coverage. I love how linear the holo is!!!

Smash



Smash is a acid green creme. It is a simple polish but perfect for the hulk and his rage! 2 coats for opacity. I love this for the hulk he is a gently giant really just trapped in this mass of green rage. Poor Bruce Banner.

Kneel!



The Last polish in the collection is based on Loki. He was not in the new Avengers movie but his Scepter was an important piece in the movie. The Scepter was given to him by the Chitauri in the first Avengers movie. Even so, Loki HAD to be in this collection. And what better way to celebrate Loki than with a deep green holographic polish with tiny gold glitter dots throughout.

The dots are great as you cannot really seen them in the sun but in the shade it totally changes the polish. A little like Loki!

Kneel is free YES FREE!!!! when you purchase the whole Avenge the Earth Collection.
