Nibs & Nails Presents Polish 'M in Brandy Dazzle and Brandy Dazzle 2.0 (Inspired by Diamine Ink) | Swatches and Giveaway

*press sample*

Hi guys! Welcome back to another week of Nibs & Nails, where we ask indie makers to dupe (or just be inspired by) popular fountain pen ink. You still have a few hours left of last week's giveaway from Frenzy Polish, so get your entries in ASAP. Tonight we are honored to have Michelle from Polish 'M to make the Diamine Shimmertastic ink called Brandy Dazzle. When Michelle got the ink sample she ended up making 2 different polishes, one the color of the ink in the bottle, and 1 of the dried ink on paper. I had mentioned to a couple of the previous makers to try and go for the dried ink color, but I failed to tell Michelle this. I could tell she liked the color of the wet ink better, and I don't blame her! We will have 2 winners for the giveaway this week, so make sure to follow the post to the end.

As always, to see an in-depth review of the ink, please check out my husband's blog post on Inkdependence. Without further ado, let's get started!

Inks and Polishes Come Together...

Brandy Dazzle ink wet

Diamine Brandy Dazzle ink drying

Brandy Dazzle ink completely dry

Brandy Dazzle Polish

Polish 'M Brandy Dazzle polish (2 coats)

Come on, look how close the polish is to the dried ink on paper! The color is in-between a pumpkin orange and copper. I'm always a fan of orange, so of course I love this one. It's definitely a fall color, right? 

Polish 'M Brandy Dazzle (2 coats, matte)

When you add a matte topcoat, you can see that the gold shimmer really pops. It ends up making the polish a bit lighter than the dried ink, but that's something we've been seeing for the past several weeks.

Brandy Dazzle 2.0 Polish

Polish 'M Brandy Dazzle 2.0 (2 coats)

Brandy Dazzle 2.0 is the color of wet ink and is a sexy, vampy color. Isn't it amazing how different the wet ink is to the dried ink color? The liquid ink (and Brandy Dazzle 2.0) is more of a blackened maroon with orange and gold shimmer. I don't know which color I love more! 

Polish 'M Brandy Dazzle 2.0 (2 coats, matte)

The matte version of Brandy Dazzle 2.0 is much lighter than the wet ink, but is awesome nonetheless.

You may be wondering if these polishes will be for sale in the Polish 'M site and the answer is yes! There will be a restock for the Polish 'M Fan Facebook Group with both versions of Brandy Dazzle in the near future, so you'll just have to join the group to learn more. I believe there will also be a public restock after the Fan Page restock, so as soon as I have the information, I'll add it here and on social media.

You can find Polish 'M on their storefrontFacebookInstagram, and Facebook Group pages (don't forget to use the code Right30 for 30% off your purchase).

Awesome review Audrey! Thank you for including me!

Love them both but brandy 2.0 is AMAZING

Krys said...

Both are gorgeous colors but I'm loving 2.0!

Jess Foto said...

Just found you and I have to say I love both polishes but I think I might like Bobby Dazzle (the first of it's name) better than 2.0. but only by the narrowest of itty bitty margins. Great review!

Both polishes are stunning but I am just sooooo in love with 2.0!!! It's the perfect vampy fall shade!

Melissa said...

Absolutely loved this post. I wanted to get the duo, but was too late and it sold out. Sigh. I'm going to wait for the restock, unless I win this giveaway. Michelle is seriously one of the best in my opinion. She nailed it with her new releases, but mostly, this duo. It's impeccable.

I'm loving 2.0. It's the perfect shade for the holidays.

Brandy 2.0 is calling out to me! It's a darker shade and the sparkles just have that extra bit of contrast compared to 1.0.
