New Goodies and Nails of the Day: Mojito Madness

I love discovering new little niche brands, especially when they are local and Australian πŸ™‚ I think I stumbled upon Sea Siren Cosmetics by ‘accident’ when I spotted a picture of them on FB. I was drawn to their round nail polish bottles (which to me look like bubbles!). This local Sydney brand specialises in nail products, specifically nail polishes. So you know me with my ‘habit’ – I had to get a few colours πŸ™‚ For a ‘little brand’ they have a surprisingly large colour range from brights to neutrals. And I just love their graphics, sea themed logo and product descriptions πŸ™‚ Another major plus is that they not only have full sized nail polish bottles (which are the round bubble shaped bottles) but also mini bottles which contain 5ml of product for those of you who are commitment phobic πŸ˜‰ I bought myself 5 mini nail polish bottles to try out and lovely Deb from Sea Siren Cosmetics sent me my parcel the same day the order was placed πŸ˜€

From left to right: Mojito Madness, Leucosia, Tranquility, Gossip and Motion of the Ocean.

How gorgeous are the colours?! These little bottles of polish sell for $6.95 usually, while the full sized polishes sell for $15.95. I bought my little minis for $4 each as they are having a stock take sale now!

The first colour I was dying to try on was Mojito Madness, for it’s crazy green fun-ness πŸ™‚ Now I was expecting this colour to be a little difficult, as super brights almost leaning towards neons are – and I was right unfortunately. It’s still a gorgeous colour and if you have patience, you can make it work πŸ™‚

Mojito Madness goes on quite sheer so to get an opaque, even coverage, you may have to paint on two or three coats. Three coats does leave quite a thick layer of polish on the nail so your drying time may be a bit longer than expected. The colour still isn’t as even as I would like it to be on the nail after three coats, but maybe that’s also because I was impatient to get all three coats ok. It is a little bit of a hassle, but hey, trust me to pick the most difficult colour to work with first πŸ˜› The colour is tempting though isn’t it? πŸ˜‰

Mojito Madness reminds me of mojitos (obviously) and some tropical paradise, that’s fun and energetic (Brazil perhaps?). On another topic – not that I’m going anywhere anytime soon – I finally bought my new camera! A beautiful Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 πŸ™‚ I haven’t played around with it yet as such, as I only received my memory card today in the mail, but rest assured I will let you know how much I love it soon πŸ™‚

How has your start to the week been? Australian uni students are on break now, which means that I have a break from my teaching duties and will be coming up with exciting posts for you soon! This winter break comes just in time as I was slowly loosing it πŸ˜›

  1. Tranquility and Motion look like my cup of tea! Very pretty.
    I’m so happy more and more brands are making vegan and cruelty free cosmetics πŸ™‚

    • They are gorgeous pastels <3 I can't wait to try them up and let you know how they go! Sea Sirens colours do not disappoint! And you're right, it's so nice that they are thinking consciously about their impact on the world πŸ™‚

      • I’m looking forward the rest of your reviews πŸ™‚

      • Oh thank you! That’s so lovely of you to say πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  2. Ooh nice find! Super cute colours and I love the names πŸ™‚ More importantly I love that the polishes are 5 free and vegan and cruelty free (woohoo!). I can’t wait to see the rest of the swatches, especially Tranquility πŸ™‚

    Also, I’m glad you finally have a little reprieve with uni holidays. I hope you get to relax and unwind a little. I’m sure you’re going to have loads of fun playing with your new camera – how exciting! Take care lovely and keep warm. I hear winter has reared it’s head in Sydney πŸ™‚ xx

  3. Oh thank you Libby! It actually feels odd having so much time on my hands again πŸ™‚ but I’m enjoying it πŸ˜‰ I’ve started playing around with my camera and love it already! But I have to admit I’m a bit of a newbie when it comes to SLR cameras (I’m guessing my camera is an SLR? lol) so I’m going to look up a few ‘tutorials’ today πŸ™‚ Is it cold in Brisbane yet? I guess it might not get cold cold in winter?

    I can’t decide whether to paint my nails with Tranquility or Motion of the Ocean today, but both of those ‘swatches’ will be up soon πŸ™‚ Deb – the lady from Sea Siren Cosmetics is super lovely and so the customer service is fantastic! I agree, the more conscious brands are to the ingredients they use etc the better! It shows they aren’t taking the ‘easy’ way out and are really thinking about the development side of their products.
