Now let’s get to the items!
(Items are listed in alphabetical order based on brand name)

Chirality
Soften Your Tips – Ocarina of Time

A little bit of this cuticle oil goes a looooooooong way! I highly recommend brushing as much off as possible back into the bottle because even just a little bit brought my dry, scaly, you-didn’t-use-a-peel-off-base-coat-for-these-swatches, fingers back to life! It’s like the Triforce of Wisdom with the power to heal your cuticles! Also, to me the scent is somewhat muted and not overbearing at all which is awesome.

Description: Scent – Ocarina of Time. A fruity blend of green apples with a touch of blackberry combine with the iconic smells of open meadows and sage to create an iconic scent that will make you feel like you are Link running through the Sacred Forest Meadow
Inspiration: Ocarina of Time
Price: $9.00
Cap: 30
Ingredients: Jojoba Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Avocado Oil, Vitamin E, Fragrance. Please visit https://www.chiralitypolish.com/product/soften-your-tips for more info

The lovely light pink polish will help you revive the Light Spirits and save Hyrule! This one is almost a one coat polish, and even with the microglitter and microflakies, it was incredibly easy to remove.

Heaven Scent Treasure Candles
Looks Like You Could Use a Heart

This fun glittery roll on perfume will have you feeling like you captured an actual fairy in a bottle! The sparkle left after application is a fun addition to the stand-out scent of this perfume.
NOTE: I have what I like to call “sensitive” skin and usually avoid lotions, perfumes, and things like that, but I did not notice any reactions after wearing this. I was able to remove the perfume and glitter with soap and water, and the scent was almost barely noticeable after that.

Description: Snow Fairy Dupe – A combination of light fruits and florals, peaches, bananas, and citrus is followed with soft florals of jasmine and wild violets on a background of warm vanilla and exotic musk. Inspired by the Lush fragrance
Inspiration: The 8-bit Fairy
Price: $9
Cap: No cap
Ingredients: Jojoba Oil, Fragrance Oil, Mica

NOTE: Sadly my perfume leaked in transit and while trying to clean it up, I managed to wash most of the label off…Nailed it. Please bear with these photos and imagine a nice bright white label that I didn’t ruin.

NeVermind
Sheikah Glyphs

These adorable nail vinyls will help you travel back in time to the age of the Sheikah! Perfectly sized for a nail and a perfect thickness, these vinyls will allow for anyone to create some nail art worthy of the protectors of the Royal Family. The nail vinyls decoder sheet will be included.

NOTE: These vinyls will come with the “inside” pieces (the actual letters) still there. I removed each of the vinyls from the sheet and then discarded the inside pieces so that you could see each one’s cutout better. Even after lifting each vinyl off the sheet and reapplying it, while using them on my nails they stayed stuck down.

Red Eyed Lacquer
Shield of Honor

The blurple beauty will blow you away once you put it on. It has a shiny chrome feel to it along with a gorgeous purple/blue shift. While it is a crelly (not usually sheer enough to be a jelly, and not opaque enough to fully be considered a crème), I found that three coats covered my nail line entirely.

Sassy Cats Lacquer
Breath of the Wild

This pink flakie filled polish will have you thinking of the beautiful Breath of the Wild sunsets and alpenglow. It is a one coat wonder and also dries semi matte. The many faces of this polish will leave you in awe!

NOTE: Please if you are able to, try to view these photos on a computer instead of on a mobile device. This polish’s color can change based on lighting conditions and my camera / lighting setup caused a “glow” that I attempted to color correct. Also please keep an eye out for photos from some other amazing swatchers so you can compare! These swatches below are more fuchsia than the polish actually is. Also, adding more coats of the polish will darken it.

Description: Bright pink polish with shifting blue to gold micro flakies, rose to gold micro flakies, plus gold flakes with blue and purple shimmer
Inspiration: Breath of the Wild scenery
Price: $10
Cap: No cap
Ingredients: 5 free formula, mica, flakies
