Jindie Nails – A History of Violets

2

Here we go again with another Jindie Nails glitter topper from the Glitter Topper Mod Quad collection. I have previously reviewed Sparkle on the Vine and Dancing with the Stars. The fourth and final shade Eclectric is also coming up soon :)

So this is A History Of Violets and here’s how it’s described on the Jindie Nails website: “It has a mix of white, periwinkle, lilac, lavender, wine, opaque matte burgundy, opaque matte light purple, opaque matte dark purple hex, dots, stars, short bars (just a few). squares and lots and lots of purple and silver shimmer throughout.   This polish features a few new glitters I haven’t used before, including matte gray and white dots & moons”.

On this manicure I used two coats of Essie Lilacism, two coats of A History of Violets, coat of Glitter Food and G & G HK Girl top coat.

 

Application was excellent, no issues. Glitters applied nice and evenly, no fishing, dabbing or placing needed. This is a very pretty glitter topper and I’m loving the colors for fall time. Layering this over an icy blue will make it perfect for winter too.

This will be available soon at jindienails.com!

Lynnderella – Opal Intuition

6

Happy Saturday! I hope everyone’s having a great weekend. Today I have another Lynnderella review for you. This is Opal Intuition from the Talismans and Birthstones collection. This has a lot of iridescent glitter and holographic micro-glitter in a sheer shimmer base. The base is blue toned. This can be layered on any basecolor you want to. I tested this over baby blue and black cremes. So let’s see what it looks like.

This is two coats of Color Club Take Me To Your Chateau, two coats of Opal Intuition and G & G HK Girl top coat.

 

And here is a coat of Color Club Where’s The Soiree?, two coats of Opal Intuition and G & G HK Girl top coat.

 

Opal Intuition has a good, a bit gel like formula that applies well. As you can see, two different base colors make it look like two completely different polishes. Personally I prefer this over the black base. It really glows and black brings out the beautiful blue shimmer. Either way this is a real beauty!

Lynnderella polishes are available to European customers at Norway Nails. You can use the code “POLISHAHOLIC” to get -10% off of any purchase. Norway Nails offers a wide range of gorgeous indies and other polish brands. You can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter.

Lynnderella – Amethyst Devotion

0

Late Sunday post for me, but I’m here now with an awesome glitter polish to show you. This is Lynnderella Amethyst Devotion from the Talismans and Birthstones collection. Amazing sheer base polish with a ton of purple glitter along with some red and pink. This can be layered over a lot of different base colors and this time I decided to use pink-ish purple creme. I also intend to do a gradient mani over a black base as soon as possible. This one is so sparkly and absolutely stunning IRL.

In this mani I used two coats of OPI Ate Berries in the Canaries, one coat of Amethyst Devotion (plus some dabbing here and there) with a generous coat of G & G HK Girl top coat.

 

Amethyst Devotion applies well and cos it’s so packed with glitter one coat is enough. Two coats would probably be almost opaque. This is the kind of polish that is very hard to capture accurately. It’s complex and there’s so much shiny glitter and sparkles. You really need to see this in real life to truly appreciate it.

Femme Fatale – Noble Garden

2

Hello lovelies! Today I have another Femme Fatale polish to show you. As many of you know I’m a sucker for green nail polish so this was a real treat for me. Noble Garden has a lot of sparkling green glitter in different shapes and sizes along with some little pops of color like pink and orange. Very beautiful combination of glitter.

I decided to layer this over a dark green jelly, NARS Zulu. This is two coats of Noble Garden over Zulu, a coat of Glitter Food and G & G HK Girl top coat.

 

Noble Garden applied very nicely and just one coat resulted in a good amount of glitter on my nails. But again I was greedy for bling and added another coat :P IMO there’s never enough green glitters and this one is a real gem :)

Femme Fatale polishes and cosmetics can be bought from their website if you live in Australia. International customers can find Femme Fatale polishes from LlaroweHarlow & CoNorway NailsShoppe Ecclecticco and Ledouxnuage.

You can also follow Femme Fatale on social media: FacebookTwitter and Instagram.

Lynnderella – S.W.A.K.

0

Here’s the second one of my new Lynnderella polishes. This is S.W.A.K. from the 2013 Groundhog Day collection. This beauty has a ton of different kinds of glitter on a sheer base, including hearts and stars. The sheer base is packed with pink/fuchsia shimmer and it just glows. This is a perfect Valentine’s Day or a romantic date polish.

This is two coats of OPI Innie Minnie Mightie Bow, two thin coats of S.W.A.K., a coat of Glitter Food and G & G HK Girl top coat.

S.W.A.K. applies well and one coat wouldn’t really even need Glitter Food to smooth it. But I’m a glitter addict so of course I had to add another coat and the result was a little chunky. This is a perfect blend of glitter and you can layer this over a lot of different base colors. I used a red shimmer base but also a bright red jelly would look absolutely gorgeous with this one.

Jindie Nails – Dancing with the Stars

2

And here we go again :) This time, as promised, I have another brand new glitter topper from Jindie Nails. This is part of the Mod Quad collection.

On Jindie Nails website Dancing with the Stars is described as: “An assortment of shapes & colors of glitters including opaque matte baby pink, neon pink, white, matte opaque gray, black, silver holographic and matte opaque white diamonds, stars, dots, short bars (just a few), hex and a few hearts and butterflies.  It has neon pink stars, hearts and butterflies!”

This is super cute and girly! You can layer this with a lot of different base colors. I chose bubblegum pink but I’m also going to try this out with baby blue and pale lilac in the future.

This is OPI Chic From Ears To Tail, two thin coats of Dancing with the Stars, a coat of Glitter Food and G & G HK Girl top coat.

 

Dancing with the Stars is packed with glitter but it’s also easy to apply. I wanted to keep on adding more and more and ended up dabbing more glitter on few spots after applying two coats. It’s so pretty and I just couldn’t help myself :D I turned the bottle upside down before application to help get out the bigger glitter pieces. This didn’t work for the butterflies though and they decided not to work with me on this and stayed in the bottle. I could see them pretty little pink things taunting me through the glass though. I’ll get them next time :P

Glam Polish – Star Candy (Mei Mei’s Signatures exclusive)

6

Hello again :) Today ended up being another two posts day. I have so many cool polishes to review and show you that I think there will be a few two posts days ahead.

This time I have a fun and bright glitter topper from Glam Polish. This neon explosion is Mei Mei’s Signatures exclusive and you can’t buy it anywhere else. Star Candy has different shapes and sizes of glitter in several neon colors. It’s bright and fun and can be layered over a lot of different base colors. I chose two different ones to try it with.

First I layered it over Delush Polish It Takes Two To Mango. This is two coats of Star Candy and G & G HK Girl top coat.

 

 

Second I tried it over a black creme cos I really wanted the colors to pop out. This is a coat of Color Club Where’s The Soiree?, two coats of Star Candy and G & G HK Girl top coat.

 

Application was very good and glitters came out of the bottle easily. Formula is a little thin and runny but as long as you make sure not to have too much polish on the brush it applies just perfectly.

This can be bought from Mei Mei’s Signatures along with a lot of other goodies. Service is always great and friendly. Shipping has always been fast but this time it was super fast, five days from Singapore to Finland. Excellent if you ask me!

Jindie Nails – Sparkle on the Vine

4

Today I have another new glitter topper from Jindie Nails. This is Sparkle on the Vine and oh boy does it truly sparkle. This is so very bling and out in the sunshine it’s almost blinding. Absolutely gorgeous!!

Here’s what Jen has to say about it: “It has lots of purples, pinks and greens in a clear base loaded with multiple shades of shimmer.  The glitters are dots, squares, shreds, hex & diamonds.    This polish features new glitters I haven’t used before including lilac metallic extra large dots, lilac holographic large dots, opaque kelly green dots, opaque baby pink dots, violet metallic medium dots, large magenta metallic squares, teal diamonds, small lilac holographic dots & more.  This polish has a clear base meant for layering.  It’s packed with glitter and you should have pretty full coverage in about 2-3 coats tops”.


This one really is packed with glitter and it’s so sparkling. I wanted to keep adding more and more cos it looked so amazing. Imagine the sparkle on the photos x100 and you get some kind of idea of what this glitter topper really looks like. Amazing!

I layered this over my yesterday’s a england Tristam manicure. So this is two coats of Tristam, two coats of Sparkle on the Vine, a coat of Glitter Food and G & G HK Girl top coat.

Sparkle on the Vine applies well but some placing of a larger glitters might be needed. I turned the bottle upside down before application to get the bigger glitters out easier. This just a perfect glitter topper that goes with a lot of different base colors.

I also took a video of this to show how it really sparkles in the sun but the idiot that I am I messed it up and won’t be adding it to this blog post. I will start to do the videos with these hard to capture bling bling polishes though. I have a YouTube account now and I’ll be uploading some manicure videos over there in the future.

Jindie Nails Summer Chic Collection

12

Today I have some brand spanking new Jindie Nails polishes for you, the Summer Chic Collection. This collection has five awesome shades that are all unique and different from each other.

I also used Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food and G & G HK Girl top coat for these swatches. With all of these except Betty’s Fetti Milkshake, I turned the bottle upside down for a bit before the application to help the bigger glitter pieces to come out of the bottle easier. Descriptions are from Jindie Nails website.

So want to see them? Here we go!

 

Hex on the Beach
“White crelly base with matte, opaque baby pink, peach, red, orange, pastel yellow and canary yellow dots, diamonds & hex. This also has metallic copper & light pink dots & hex throughout plus a gorgeous peach shimmer”.

This is three thin coats with Glitter food and HK Girl top coat. Application was a breeze and I had no issues with it. Hex on the Beach has this beautiful peach-y shimmer that is very subtle and doesn’t really show up on my photos. The color combination on this just makes me smile :)

 

That Purple Ish

“It’s got a periwinkle purple base loaded with silver shimmer and an assortment of wine, purple, lilac, lavender, hot pink, navy and magenta dots, squares and hex “.

This is three thin coats with Glitter food and HK Girl top coat. Application was very easy with this one. The base is sheer so my long nails needed three coats to build it opaque. I love the periwinkle shade with a ton of shimmer and the big holographic dots give this one such sparkle when the light hits it right.

 

Quit Staring at my Melons!

“Glitter topper with matte kelly green, barbie pink, matte gray dots, watermelon pink & black dots plus smaller metallic light green and light pink dots.  Also has small and extra large matte black dots and small micro hex in matte kelly green, matte gray, barbie pink, black, watermelon pink. The base is a clear base with bits of real silver flakes and intense green shimmer”.

This is two thin coats over Delush Polish Finding Mr. Bright with Glitter Food and HK Girl top coat. Application was normal, no problems. This is such a gorgeous topper and the name, you gotta love the name! :D I really had to think about what polish to pair it with cos this one has so many colors in it. I ended up using Delush Polish Finding Mr. Bright and I think these two are a match made in heaven. Such a fruit-y fun looking combination. This glitter topper would also go great with a white base and I’m definitely going to try it with neon pink base.

 

Betty’s Fetti Milkshake

“White crelly base with all same size micro-matte hex in opaque pastels and opaque & transparent neon hex”.

This is three thin coats with HK Girl top coat. Application was very smooth. I did three coats but shorter nails can get away with two. Betty’s Fetti Milkshake is just super cute and fun looking polish! It makes me want to lick my fingers in case it tastes as sweet as it looks :D

 

Don’t Get it Citrus Twisted

“Bright neon green crelly with matte opaque kelly green, pastel yellow and canary yellow dots and extra large hex, neon pink hex and opaque baby pink dots and extra large hex with silver shimmer”.

This is again three thin coats with Glitter Food and HK Girl top coat. This is the only one that gave me a bit of problems on the application. The base color is quite sheer and I didn’t get it to look as smooth as I wanted. So the next time I will apply the first coat with very little glitter on it and as evenly as I can. Then I’ll let it dry well before applying the next coat. I always allow some dry time between the coats but I think that this time it wasn’t enough. Either way this polish is absolutely gorgeous, color combination is amazing and it’s totally worth the little extra time the application might take.

 

Jen has done it again! She has created such a beautiful solid collection that has a little bit of everything. I just love this collection and I can’t even pick a favorite polish out of these five shades. They are all different and I will use all of them again. The best part is there are more new summer shades and I have three more of them to show you soon enough!

Crazy Polish Lady – Cinderella Shoe

2

Hello my lovelies! I’ve been crazy busy again and haven’t been able to post daily. We are getting the house renovation project done this month and we are getting ready to move soon. So much to do still and I think that I might not be able to blog as much as I wanted for a little bit longer. Already trying to come up with a plan of how to move all my precious polish bottles and cosmetics safely ;) We are in a lucky enough situation not to have to move everything in one or two days so I can take my time and get everything there in one piece, hopefully…

Enough with the babble, let’s talk about today’s polish. This is another pretty creation from Portuguese indie brand Crazy Polish Lady. Cinderella shoe is from her second collection called “Memories in Colors”. This has a lot of white hex glitter and smaller holographic glitter on a clear base and this is meant to be used with a base color. You can practically wear this with any color you can imagine. I layered it with two Crazy Polish Lady shades I have previously reviewed Strawberry Swing and Cosmic Love.

I used a sponge to do a gradient over Strawberry Swing. I really loved how this turned out. The glitter pieces also laid flat enough and I didn’t need to use Glitter Food to smooth it out. This is two coats of Strawberry Swing, couple of coats of Cinderella Shoe sponged and G & G HK Girl top coat.

 

Next I tried this with Cosmic Love. I sponged a reversed gradient on three fingers and on the ring finger I applied two regular coats on a whole nail. So this is two coats of Cosmic Love, two regular coats on the ring finger and two coats sponged gradient on the three other nails plus  G & G HK Girl top coat.
Application was good and glitter came out of the bottle easily. I really like the white glitter and the holographic glitter gives this polish a lovely sparkle.
Crazy Polish Lady lives in Portugal and she ships internationally. She doesn’t have her own store yet but you can message her on her Facebook page or email her carvalho.sophie(@)gmail.com and place an order. Her first collection is now also available at Mei Mei’s Signatures.
