Jade Vermelho Surreal

Of course after a few days of sun and heat, I bust out a holo and the sun completely disappears the entire day.  Oh well.  This polish is still gorgeous!  A truly holo red.  It dries shiny, doesn't need a special base and only costs $7 on Llarowe or Ninja Polish.  My pictures do it no justice.

This is 2 coats.

Smitten Polish Mint Chip

Mint and chocolate.  I absolutely hate that combo whether in cookie, candy, or ice cream form.  I want to throw something at whoever came up with it.  (I know I'm in the minority here.)  Despite all this, I just had to buy Mint Chip because it was such a cute concept.

Mint Chip is a light green that leans slightly blue with both small and large brown glitter suspended throughout.  It was a little uneven, but top coat fixed all of that.

Random thought: I really wish more indies would put balls in their polish to make shaking up more effective.

This is 3 coats.

This can be purchased on Etsy or Llarowe.  (It's on sale at Llarowe right now!)

Girly Bits Star Spangled over OPI Dating a Royal

I haven't posted in a while.  So many things have been going on, but thank you to those who have stuck around!

Since today is Inauguration day, I decided to get in the spirit with Girly Bits Star Spangled.  I have to say that I was not a huge fan of the way it looked by itself.  The blue and red glitter some how got lost in translation and wasn't as bright and the red glitter wasn't as obvious as I hoped it would be.  So instead of wearing it alone, I layered it over OPI Dating a Royal and it was perfect!  If only pictures could do it justice.

Here's Dating a Royal on it's own with 3 coats:

And here it is with Star Spangled on top:
