Festive Leopard | Featuring Sation Review and Swatches (Part 2)

Gooood morning everyone!

This is part two of the Sation manicures/reviews! The holidays are right around the corner so what better way to prepare then with a holiday manicure? I apologize for the lighting being so "off" in these pictures, I was battling with the sun all day!


For this manicure I used Sation 3 Free-Dom as the taupe base. Next, using a nail art brush, I created the outline of all the leopard spots using Sation I Paint in Peace. I used the same brush to fill in the spots with Zoya Ziv, then I went over the spots with Sation No Rings Attached. The accent finger (the ring finger) was created with a chevron print inspiration. I used Zoya Ziv and Sation NRA once again for the gold and Sation I Paint in Peace for the thin green chevron. As always, I finished with a top coat.

Now let's have a closer look at the polishes used in this manicure...




All pictures taken in indirect sunlight, without flash, and without topcoat unless otherwise stated.

Sation Free-Dom is a taupe jelly. SUPER shiny...oh my goodgosh! This is gorgeous, I really love it. Free-Dom is very buildable and applies evenly. In this picture I have 3 coats on the pointer and middle fingers and 2 coats on the index and pinky fingers. Again, this is SO shiny, no top coat here y'all!

Sation I Paint in Peace is a somewhat muted garland green with silver/gold microshimmer. Application was very smooth with this one. I love the name by the way! And the best thing about this polish? It's a one coater! Yes, you read that right. 


Lastly we have Sation No Rings Attached. For some reason I can't find the image of this alone so here it is in a jelly sandwich with 3 Free-dom. NRA is a stunning gold multiglitter in a clear base. There's round, hex, and bar glitter packed into this one! I love it, so gorgeous.

And as a little bonus, here's the brush of the Sation polishes. I enjoyed using the brush, made application easy and smooth.


Overall, I'm very pleased with Sation. As I mentioned in my last post this is my first experience using this brand's polishes and I'm very pleased. The quality is great and the formula was easy to work with, with the exception of Ego Friendly's tough application (see last post for more info). The brush (see above) is perfect for application, not too wide or thin and just long enough for easy coverage of the nail. You can find Sation polishes in select TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Winners (Canada) stores as well as online for $5.00 each.
