Dollish Polish This Pop, Rocks!

Today I have another Dollish Polish from the new Candy line.

THIS POP, ROCKS! is a clear based glitter topper. Contains purple micro glitter, small pink hexagons, medium neon green hexagons, black diamonds, and lavender stars. The stars were difficult. I managed one on my nail. I have this layered over Essie Turquiose & Caicos. I'll have to admit, I had a hard time deciding what to layer this over! So many possibilities. Photos are 2 coats of This Pop, Rocks! over the base colour.

Simplicity and No Love Lost - Emily de Molly

My first 2 Emily de Molly polishes. This is another Aussie brand now available to the rest of us! I'll add links to shops after pics. All polish is 3 free.

SIMPLICITY is a lilac crelly with holographic micro shimmer. Small squares and medium matte white hexagons. Photos show 3 coats. No issues with application or formula.

NO LOVE LOST is a cherry red jelly with various size and shaped  red and pink glitter. Formula is fantastic. Totally in love with this polish. It's just squishy goodness in a bottle. Photos show 2 coats.

If you live in Australia, polish can be purchased directly from the Emily de Molly Etsy shop. If you live outside Australia, you have three choices for shopping. LlaroweShoppe Eclectic, or Norway Nails. You'll have to figure out which is best for you. Prices vary depending on retailer.

The Polish Bar Butterfly Kisses swatch and review

This is my first polish from The Polish Bar! I love discovering new brands!

The Polish Bar store can be found here. Shipping is currently only available in the United States and Canada. As I write this Butterfly Kisses is in stock.

BUTTERFLY KISSES is a clear base glitter topper with lilac, blue, white, and holographic glitter in square and hexagon. Also some silver butterflies. Photos shown are 2 coats of Butterfly Kisses over Essie Play Date. The base used in this is thick, so be careful when applying. A good top coat is needed to smooth it out.

Make sure to follow the Polish Bar on facebook for information on re-stocks and new releases.

Shamrock Floam and Shillelagh swatch and review

Today I have two polishes that Ninja Polished released for St. Patrick's Day. Shamrock Floam and Shillelagh. I know that post is a bit behind.

Ninja Polish can be found here. As I write this Shamrock Floam is currently in stock. Also, make sure to follow along on facebook for re-stock information and new releases.

SHAMROCK FLOAM is a mix of matte green and white small glitter in clear base. Photos shown are 3 coats with a small amount of dabbing to cover a couple thinner spots. This can also be layered.

SHILLELAGH is a shiny grass green colour shifting polish. This is the newest release from the Enigma collection. No underwear required. I recommend letting it dry a bit between coats to avoid pulling. I really love this colour. Greens are my favourite. My only problem with this is the brush. I think the problem is the polish itself did something to it. I've included a picture so you can see it. Because the brush wouldn't fan at all, it made application difficult. Even with this problem I'll be using it again! 3 thin coats.

 The brush kept the same shape no matter what I tried. Because it is at a bit of an angle and won't fan out it made application a bit of trial in patience.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you back soon.

Forever Polished Mr. Staxx

MR. STAXX by Forever Polished is a jade green frosty base with green and copper micro glitters. This applied smoothly and in 2 coats. I did have to dab in a couple spots, but nothing major. I adore this polish! I love how there is lots of glitter, but it's not in your face.

Forever Polished has moved from Etsy to BigCartel. You can find the new shop here. Also follow along on facebook for any updates!

Aphrodite Lacquers Romes and Jules

I have two polishes from the Aphrodite Lacquers Romes and Jules collection for you.

SUCH SWEET SORROW is a bright pink jelly base with a mix of purple, red, and pink glitter in various sizes and shapes. Also micro holographic glitter. The larger square glitter was hard to get out of the bottle. Photos are 2 coats of Such Sweet Sorrow over Maybelline Color Show Mesmerizing Magenta.

VIOLENT DELIGHTS is a white base crelly with micro holographic scattered throughout. Contains various size and shape glitter in white, pink, purple and red. I used a coat of white to get this started followed by 2 coats of Violent Delights. Has a bit of a chunky appearance. I think this is from some of the white glitter being stuck together.

Aphrodite Lacquer can be purchased from Etsy. Also, follow along on Facebook for any updates.

Chilling With Mike & Ike

Happy first day of spring! Of course it's raining here. Ugh :(

On to happy spring polish, shall we...

Dollish Polish Chilling With Mike & Ike is a milky green crelly with red, yellow, orange and green hexagons, along with larger white hexes and black squares. I found the black squares to be a bit elusive. I ended up with one on my nails. Photos shown are 3 coats with no undies. Applied nicely. The glitter isn't too hungry. This polish is from the new Candy Series.

Dollish Polish can be purchased at their store HERE. Currently you can also purchase from Llarowe HERE. Please note that Llarowe only carries select shades.

Thanks for stopping by!

Smitten Polish Wickedly Smitten

Showing off 2 polishes from Smitten Polish. These are both from the Wickedly Smitten collection based on Wicked. (the prequel to The Wizard of Oz)

PINK GOES GOOD WITH GREEN! is a milky mint green crelly base with pink, purple and light green glitter. Various sizes in hexes and squares. I really love the green glitter in this polish. It is so unique. I need to find more polish with this glitter in it! Photos show 3 coats, no underwear. Glitter isn't too chunky. Regular top coat is enough for a smooth finish.

I FEEL...WICKED is an emerald green jelly shimmer base. Packed with various sizes of green and purple glitter. Also some holo glitters in there. Again, a regular top coat will smooth this out. Photos are 3 coats, no undies.

Please follow the Smitten Polish facebook page for updates. Smitten Polish is currently available through etsyllarowe and femme fatale. All three ship to different locations, so choose which is better for you.
