Hebridean Sprite Beauty - Brownie Helper

As promised, I'm back with more from Hebridean Sprite Beauty!

Before I show you, though, here's what Krista, the owner, had to say when I asked her to tell me a little about her company:
I was actually inspired by all the chunky glitters and I kept thinking to myself, I could make something more unique and sophisticated. I have had ideas on my own cosmetics line for over a year, just keeping a list of names I'd like to do something based on and colour combos, but I decided to finally do it this summer after I graduated. I had had a very stressful last couple semesters and wanted to do something fun and creative but still something with a point or purpose. I researched my butt off and asked a bunch of people for help and decided I wanted to do a nail polish line first. Plus as I'm Scottish through both my parents and I love Celtic mythology I wanted the main polish line to be named after Scottish and Irish folklore. This then expanded into other mythological stories (like Phoenix and Centaurs) but the celtic theme has always been something that meant a lot to me, which is why my blog and now my little itty bitty company is named Hebridean Sprite Beauty because I've always felt amazed and awed when I'm in Scotland and when I visited the Scottish Hebrides, they felt truly magical.

Now for something on the company itself. We're 100% cruelty-free and vegan. I only buy cruelty-free cosmetics and I think cosmetics isn't something that needs animal testing- animals shouldn't have to suffer for a person to look good. There aren't any animal by-products in any of my ingredients either. I triple check my ingredients to make sure there aren't anything like Carmine, Silk, guanine, etc. I wanted to make the line vegan because I know that it can be difficult to find vegan options for people so inclined and seeing as there are so many other options available now I've strived to learn to formulate without animal by-products. On top of that I've included all my ingredients for each product individually on the product page- not a may contain or one single ingredient listing for everything. My polishes are big three free as well and only use Stainless Steel BB balls and specifically solvent-resistant glitters.
Each polish includes a little card that includes an image of the mythological creature the polish was inspired by, a bit of history about the myth and a summary of my inspiration for the polish colour.

They are $10 USD each on storenvy- http://spritebeauty.storenvy.com
I have a two polish minimum order at the moment (due to shipping from Canada issues). 



THESE are the polishes I will be showing (have shown) you:  Underhill, Loch Ness Monster, Brownie Helper (NOW) and Banshee Scream. Please see Underhill here and Loch Ness Monster here if you missed them!














So tonight we have Brownie Helper. This one is a lavender creme/shimmer with pink microglitter pieces. Application was great and I had no issues. This one can be worn alone (estimate 3 - 4 coats) but I wore only 1 coat of it over Nails Inc. Sutherland Street. No top coat.
