Love, Angeline - Almond Darling

*All Polishes Were Purchased*

I have some pretty pastels from indie brand Love, Angeline to share today! Oh, and they're matte.  Oh, and they have some subtle shimmer.  Excited yet?  Maybe just take a peek below.

This is almost the complete Love, Angeline Chateau Macaron collection that released a few months ago for Spring 2015.  In retrospect, I should have just gotten the complete collection because the only one I'm missing is Confection-ary Yellow and I've seen a lot of really cute manis on Instagram using it.  *Sigh* but I digress...

The first color I tried from the collection is Almond Darling.  I used 3 coats and no topcoat in order to leave it matte.  Almond Darling is a very pink leaning lavender.  It's extremely close to the pink in the collection, Baiser de Mousse, but is just slightly more lavender.  The formula was thin, which I liked because it was easy to control and lets a peek of shimmer show through (though very subtle).  I left some dry time between coats so they didn't pull.  This polish self leveled very well and the wear was fantastic!  I had no chipping even after a few days.


Natosha, the creator behind Love, Angeline is very engaging with her polished fans, so I definitely recommend stopping by!  The story behind her brand name is so sweet too!  You can still purchase the Chateau Macaron collection from her shop here.  If you are drawn to brighter shades for the summer, not to worry, because she's releasing a sister collection of summer matte neons called Meet Me At The Tea Salon.

Check out her Facebook and Instagram and if you have any Love, Angeline polishes I'd love to hear which ones you have!  Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Very pretty. I love the color.

    1. Thank you! I'm pretty excited to try the others :)

  4. I haven't tried this brand yet but every one I see is lovely. I think she is based in Colorado (where I'm moving) will have to connect!

  5. Oooh that's such a gorgeous pink!!! Can't wait to see what else she does!

  6. I want this whole collection so badly! I'm a matte lover. This pink is lovely!

  7. I haven't heard of this brand, that pink is lovely

  8. I'm so jealous, though I would be kicking myself too if I was one short of the whole collection. I cannot resist the summer collection that she's releasing, definitely getting that.

  9. I bought the entire mini size collection, and I'm so glad I did, because they're so beautiful!

  10. All look pretty. And love this swatch, my fav. pink :D
