Animeniac Cosmetics- My Swatches

Author: marta  //  Category: Animeniac, China Glaze, KKCenterHk, Nicole OPI

Hello Lovely Ladies,

It seems like everywhere we look there are new and innovative shades of polish popping up, and behind them are creative indie brands and fashion forward mainstream brands.  I, for one, am loving these times of nail-polish abundance and glory!!!

Today, I am happy to show you four shades from the Canadian-based indie brand,  Animeniac Cosmetics.

EDIT: you may now use coupon code: “chitchatsave” for 25% off your purchase with Animeniac Cosmetics (coupon code valid until March 31, 2013)

I was given the choice of my shades for review :D , and here are my picks:

I also want to show you a little bit of a personal-touch with Giga Byte Me ;)

Animeniac Cosmetic is a new-to-me brand, and if you haven’t heard of it before I am happy to shed some light into a yet-unlit corner full of pretty polish)

Caution, post is PHOTO HEAVY ;)

Animeniac Cosmetics is an exclusive line of nail polish. The line is influenced by Anime, Manga, Comics, Gaming, and Sci-Fi so the colors are bold, vibrant, glittery and creative. 

Animeniac Cosmetics was created out of a love for color and anime. Our Chief Designer’s gifted creativity has resulted in vibrant vivid, colorful and unique blended nail lacquers. Our alluring, dazzling nail color is like having enticing nail art in a bottle. Our products are always free of Formaldehyde, Toluene, and Dibutyl Phthalate (the “big 3”),and with ingredients that have never been tested on animals.

Each 15mL bottle retails for $12.00

Animeniac Crash Landing is a matte black and white shredded glitter:

(one coat over NOPI Scarlett)

You all know of my weakness for black and white glitter.  I finally got my hands on a shredded black and white glitter! SQUEEEEE!

I have to note how smoothly this glitter applies.  The clear base of this polish is very thin (not goopy at all) which makes application a breeze and even shredded-glitter distribution a guarantee.  Honestly, from application to look- I ADORE THIS SHADE!!!!

I also want to take a moment and share with you how this shade took me down memory lane ;)   When I was in my early teens I used to LOVE watching Warner Bros Animaniacs with my younger siblings.  I could not get enough of that cartoon and looked forward to the weekends to watch it- this nail polish reminds me of those fun and carefree weekends.

Manicure wise, I chose to mattify this beauty ;)

NOTE: this is the bottle you will be getting when you make your purchase.  (the following mini-bottles are sample-only)

* * * *

Animeniac Blogger is a transparent base with white hexagonal glitter (and some surprise white heart glitter bits as well)

(one coat over NOPI Am I Making Myself Claire?)

Do I need to mention how much I love the name of this polish?!?  I think I might have to wait until my non-existent cows come home to get my hands on my name-sake polish: “Marta”… buuuut, being a Blogger is such a big part of who I am.  For those of you who run blogs, you know how much of yourself you pour into your posts, how much care and effort goes into every manicure.  This polish of pure, innocent and gorgeous white glitter (with a few white hearts inbetween), truly captures the essence of “blogging”- your heart has to be in it ;)

* * * *

Animeniac Cherry Maiden is an upcoming color.  It is filled with various sizes of gold and holographic siver glitter mixed in with smaller metallic red bits ;)

(one coat over black)

(direct sunlight)

* * * *

Animeniac Giga Byte Me is a grey jelly-base with silver (lavender) toned glitter:

(one coat over China Glaze Pelican Grey)

This is such a neat collor.  The glitter is primerily silver/charcoal, but I swear I detect some lavander-silver in there… :D

I did find that dabbing the glitters on worked better than painting them on (as some of the glitters wanted to clump together); that being said, the base is also NOT goopy which makes dabbing easier.

I chose to add some silver data-blocks (get it, Gigabyte… data blocks… ) :

These silver rectangle 4mmx2mm studs are from KKCenterHk:

(N.NAIL Studs Rectangle Silver 4mmX2mm Nail Art Decorations [NNAIL-DRN645] )

If you know me personally, you will know that I don’t know anything about computers, electronics, gadgets etc.  But Peter is a computer savvy guy, and because of him, I really love the name of this polish ;)

* * * *

As I mentioned earlier, if you choose to make an Animeniac Cosmetic purchase you will get the full 15mL bottle with the pretty logo (the other three bottles in today’s post are sample-bottles only).

Each bottle retails for $12.00 and can be purchased online HERE.

EDIT: you may now use coupon code: “chitchatsave” for 25% off your purchase with Animeniac Cosmetics (coupon code valid until March 31, 2013)

    The polishes are pretty but entirely too expensive!!!

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      Yeah, these are a little on the pricey side (please note that the price is for
      the 15mL bottle- not the little sample bottles). I am also awaiting a
      coupon code to share with my readers- so I hope that will reduce the
      price a little ;) (I will share it in the post and in the comment
      section once I get it)

  • Christine Steiner

    Thank so much for sharing your Cartoon memoriers with us!!! I really like the versatility of these glitters, nothing quicker than liven up any given mani by being able to throw on a quick neutral though captivating sparkle ;-)

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      My pleasure! I still remember the Animaniacs and their hyper prelude around the Warner Bros tower :D *sigh… ah, to be young again *
      Very true… glitter is one of those easy spruce-me-uppers ;)
