Creme Brulee Surprize

I finally just got over a cold and have also been feeling the blues on top of that, so I haven't had energy to post, but today I have an indie. It's Creme Brulee Surprize (not a typo),  from the awesome site, Copious. The only info I had was that the seller bought it from a blog sale and it came from an indie store on Etsy. I only had 10 minutes before my credit was to expire and it was the only polish that caught my eye so I took a gamble on it.

I love creme brulee, so I adore the name. As for the brand, I think it's Naild'it Unique. Same bottle, cute hand written label as older bottles, and spelling but the color confuses me. In the purchase history there seems to be an older version of this polish, which is no longer available. It looks like mine but I'm not sure. The newest and only one now has the same kind of glitter as mine but in a sheerer pink base. See? Confusing. I'm not sure what the deal is.

It might make me feel better to here what some of you have to say so here are links to bottle shots if you want to check it out. Newest on top, oldest on bottom:

Anyways, it was thick but easy to apply. I only needed two coats for opacity. It dried faster than I expected and was self leveling. It had downsides though. First off I had to give it a vigorous shake to try to break up the glitter against the sides. Secondly and sadly, the glitter got lost in the base. I wish it was more obvious.

I don't absolutely love Creme Brulee Surprize as I had hoped, but I still like it. The shade of nude is pretty but if the base was sheerer and the glitter was more obvious, it would have been love for me. I'm still glad I took the chance on it.


  1. Maybe you could try diluting the base so the glitter shows through more.

  2. Looks great. I do agree with you that it would look nice if you could see the glitter more :D

  3. Definitely a unique color! Just followed, lovely blog!

  4. This is really pretty. I don't think it would look as good on me though.

  5. This reminds me a bit of cake batter. Neat!
