I bought the Milky Way polish and I absolutely love the final look. I've never tried Australis' nail polishes so I won't be able to compare it with other polishes from the nail range.
Note: these photos were taken under artificial lighting so sorry if the colours look a bit inconsistent but I've tried to make them look true to colour as much as possible.
The application of the first coat is very sheer as you can tell. Not sure if you can see from the picture but there are very fine blue and gold glitter as well as the big chunks of glitter.
The second coat is still pretty sheer but much better compared to the first coat.
After the third coat I'm quite satisfied with the result although it's still a bit sheer. The big pieces of glitter from previous coats look more opaque (is that the right word?) and it makes a big difference for the 'galaxy' look Australis is aiming for. It's like looking at the stars at night - some stars looking very bright whereas other stars are more distant and dull.
As for the formula, I'm not really in love with it and I don't know if all Australis' nail polishes are like this. I find that the formula is a bit thick and harder to apply with each coat. Regardless, I love the finishing result and I find it really cute!
Have you tried any of Australis' polishes and what are your thoughts?
