Swatches & Review - Brijit's Digits Lavender Rose & Show Your Nettle

Hi loves! How are you today? Ready for the weekend? I am, relaxing tonight and tomorrow we'll be visiting my parents as they are celebrating their birthdays.

So today I got 2 new shades from Brijit's Digits! If that sounds familiar, I already showed 2 of her polishes here. These shades are called Lavender Rose (which is a pinkish lavender, surprise surprise ;-)) and Show Your Nettle (a dusty jade). Brijit's Digits is 3 free and made with quality mica and glitters. A bottle holds 10ml. and prices range from $10,10 to $12,12. Both swatches are with Duri Rejuvacote as my base and Essence Better Than Gel Top Sealer for topcoat.

Let's start with Lavender Rose! As I said it is a pinkish lavender and I thought the color was the same as OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender. It is in the same range but a bit lighter. It contains a beautiful shimmer and sparkle and there seem to be some silver glitter or flakies too. I used 3 coats for opacity, the 1st coat looked SO sheer I thought it'd never be opaque, but the second already added a lot of color and at 3 it had the right squishy touch to it.

It dries smooth and with topcoat very shiny too. This feels very girly and I will be using this when Spring comes around I guess!


















































Next is Show Your Nettle. I immediately liked this one in the bottle as I just love my dusty jade greens. The shimmer is pretty strong with this one and there also seems to be a sparkle in there that just lights up the polish every now and then. Also there are little darker specks that give it a bit of a grey melange t-shirt vibe. For this I used 2 coats and the formula was a bit weird - the first few coats were nice and velvety but moving on it got a bit thick. I did paint this in front of a ventilator so it might be affected by it, also a little thinner will probably do the trick.

The finish is a bit more textured, I think because of the darker specks. Topcoat does smooth it perfectly though!




Which of these 2 shades would you pick? Tell me in the comments!

  1. I would pick the last one since the pink is not really my cup of tea. It is pretty, but not for me ;)

  3. These are both so gorgeous. That green looks like a lighter version of Zoya Zuza.

  12. Lavender Rose is so pretty and delicate. I make it a rule not to buy any indies, but I may have to bend that rule just a little bit.

  13. Why do you try and not buy indies? Because of the hassle that is mostly involved with them? Just curious :).

    It would look amazing on you I think!

  14. Exactly that. I see all the drama and stress that arises when some indies do restocks, and it's all very unappealing to me. I'd rather not get worked up about a polish I can't even see in person before purchasing. I much prefer polishes that I can easily buy in-store.

  15. I try and avoid that, too. I'm in Europe so most of the times restocks happen when I am sleeping, and I will NOT sacrifice my precious sleeping time for polish, I just won't. Also, the prices sometimes asked for indies.. insane! I prefer companies I have easy communication with and that are reliable for me. Like Brijit's Digits!
