Have you ever seen star shaped polish bottles? I didn’t until Jen was kind enough with sending me two of her creations. Jen’s custom blended creations are called JENsations and are made with a 3-free cruelty free base (Toluene, Formaldehyde & DBP free) that will suspend glitter (glitter won’t all fall to the bottom). Each bottle contains two stainless steel ball bearings (they will not rust or affect your polish) for easy shaking. Pigments and glitters tend to settle over time so please shake gently before using 😉
First up, Autumn Harvest, a mix of multi-sized matte red, yellow & orange hexagon & square glitter in a clear base. I layered one coat of Autumn Harvest over two coats of OPI’s Midnight In Moscow. As the name says, this is a perfect glittermix for Fall. The formula is quite thick, so I think this could need some drops of polish thinner (please do NOT use acetone to thinner your polish!). I needed to replace some of the glitter pieces, but overall it blended nicely. To create a smooth finish I topped it off with one coat of Seche Vite.
This mix of multi-sized matte hot pink square, hexagon & bar glitter in a clear base is called Think Pink. I layered one coat of Think Pink over two coats of Liquid Leather by China Glaze. As with Autumn Harvest the formula is on the thick side and definitely needs some drops of polish thinner. I didn’t need to replace the glitter pieces with this one. I’ve noticed that by quickly applying the polish, you’ll get the best result (see the difference between my ring- and the other fingernails). I finished this mani with one coat of Seche Vite.
The bottles are unique for their shape and I love that! Both polishes have a thick formula and could need some drops of polish thinner. Besides some replacing some glitter pieces, the application went fine. I think Think Pink would look nice layered over a white base. Great for Spring and Summer! Overall, nice toppers!
