MECCA Cosmetica Painted Beauty Midnight Series

This season, MECCA Cosmetica brings night to life with 3 limited edition Painted Beauty Glide-On Nail Colours. Each bottle contains 15ml of product, made in Australia and retails at AUD22 which is approximately S$28 (depending on the conversion rate).

These 3 new hues feature special effects for your winter palette of midnight tones and deep textures. Wonderfully pigmented and rich, these new shades are perfect for well-groomed fingers and toes.

The Midnight Series includes Moonlight a burgundy with silver micro-shimmer, After Darka petrol green with green and yellow gold micro-shimmer and Midnighta holographic black.

All swatches taken with Nail Tek Foundation III Base Coat, 2 coats of nail polish and Poshe Super-fast Drying Top Coat.

Painted Beauty Glide-On Nail Colour in Moonlight.

Beautiful texture and rich colour – full opacity in 2 coats, applies very smoothly without streaking. The silver micro-shimmers are infused so well with the base colour, it is so easy to remove – doesn’t leave any flakes behind.

Painted Beauty Glide-On Nail Colour in After Dark.

Smooth consistency but out of these three nail colours, this is more watery and sheer during the first coat of application. Despite that, you can also achieve full opacity in 2 coats.

This black might be the most interesting one in my collection. It reminds me of the galaxy and milky way. Texture is smooth and applies easily without streaking. The multi-coloured micro-shimmers are super fine, doesn’t feel gritty and removes very easily – leaving no traces of glitter behind.


I accidentally noticed this brand of nail polishes at MYER when I visited Melbourne last year. It was pretty much love-at-first-swatch – the colours are vibrant, true to bottle and the texture is smooth, creamy and easy to apply. I bought 3 bottles last year and another 5 (including these new shades) during my recent trip. You can view their entire collection here.

As MECCA Cosmetica is based mainly in Australia and New Zealand, they are quite difficult to obtain. I believe you can purchase some of their products online but they do not ship nail polishes internationally. Keep a look out for their range of beautiful Painted Beauty Glide-On Nail Colour when you visit Australia – they are worth a look at for sure.

I am absolutely in love with the uniqueness of this collection.

Thank you for reading.
