The last few weeks, there's been a lot of commotion in the indie polish community, because of the Mentality Nail Polish drama (if you don't know, just google it ;) ) I want to state that this incident is isolated to this brand only. It's really sad that a lot of people have been introduced to the whole concept of indie nail polish, through the news about the damaging MNPs and the horrific pictures of people's nails falling off and worse. I want to assure you that all polishes I show you here are safe. I've never had such an issue EVER. Nor have I ever heard of any other indie polish brand that caused such damage. So just to be clear: trust indie nail polish! (But avoid MNP from now on...)
Having said this, I have a very pretty from MyIndiePolish.com for you: "Someday, My Spring Will Come". A gorgeous bright teal shimmer silver square holo microglitter... It's stunning! Unfortunately, we've had a string of cloudy rainy days here, so I'll have to show it to you without direct sunlight... meaning it's even prettier IRL!
A while ago, I saw this post on IG from Incidental Twin Lacquer of the Squeeze Pop set. Since I only have a few tiny mini bottles of OPI's sheer tints, I was in dire need of more jelly goodness, so needless to say I immediately purchased these! I used them here for some lead lighting reverse stamping nail art:
There are some new Essence pretties in store and I want to show you two of them. They're "Turn The Lights On" and "Girl's Best Friend". I bought both of them, because I thought they'd look awesome together. But first let's look at them on their own ;)
I received some ultra cool metal nail decoration from Born Pretty Store! I will show you how to quickly spice up a simple manicure with them. They come in all kinds of shapes, but I have the awesomest: stars!
Yesterday I showed you part one of this magical collection: The Jellies. Today I will show you the amazing glass fleck flakie top coats! The difference between the jellies and the top coats, is that while the jellies provide amazing depth to the polish, the top coats give it an intense sparkle (when glossy) and completely change the appearance of the base colour! Now caution, reader, for this awesomeness will cause intense drooling. So grab a bucket.
Have I got a mighty fine collection for you! It's Ms. Sparkle's Sheer O'Magic Collection, consisting of 6 beautiful polishes containing loads and loads of colour shifting iridescent flakies. I've divvied up this magical collection into two parts: The Jellies and The Toppers and we will start with The Jellies!
Happy Red Coat Tuesday! We didn't post every week this season of Pretty Little Liars, but for the midseason finale, we decided to all come together and celebrate the unveiling of the mysterious A! So I did a nice red manicure for you, with Born Pretty Store stamping.
I recently acquired a long-time lemming of mine! I bought Above The Curve "Field of Tulips" over at OverallBeauty.com. She was having a sale and on top of that, my lemming. How lucky am I?! Let me show it to ya :D
