Windestine Heartbeat Swatch & Review!

Las Vegas was fun, but I'm happy to be back so that I can post. I'm very excited to share this post I have for you today! I was asked about two weeks ago if I wanted to review some polishes from the new Windestine collection inspired by Little Women. I don't remember if I've read the book, but I definitely remember the movie. It was one of my favorites growing up. I had such a big crush on Laurie, played by Christian Bale. Anyway, this marks the first time I've been asked to do a review for an indie brand, or any brand for that matter. I was sent three of the polishes from the collection to review and today I have the first one to show you. Without further ado, here is Heartbeat!

Heartbeat is a purple crelly that has purple, magenta, and copper glitter. According to the description, Heartbeat is inspired by Beth of Little Women. It is so gorgeous!! Purple is one of my favorite colors and this one is fabulous. The shimmer is without a doubt the best part of this polish. It adds a beautiful glow. Unfortunately, I had a hard time capturing just how awesome it is. It's so much better in person. For swatches, I layered one coat of Heartbeat over two coats of China Glaze Grape Pop, which I think makes a great base. I have no doubts that it would look beautiful worn by itself. Formula wise, Heartbeat was fantastic. It wasn't too thick or thin and the application was smooth and trouble free. I topped it off with one coat of my Orly topcoat.

I'm very impressed with Heartbeat! It's such a gorgeous color. The other two I have are just as pretty and I can't wait to show you swatches of them. Head on over to Windestine if you love this color and want to purchase it for yourself!
