Here’s an extra post to show you the newest addiction to the shop. Meet At The End of the Rainbow, an intense lavender holographic glitter polish. Not your ‘regular’ holographic awesomeness though. This sparkles like crazy. Shown here is two coats plus top coat:Natural daylight:And a macro bottle shot in direct sunlight:Like it? Get yours at the shop 🙂
I hope you’ve all had a lovely Easter weekend! Today I have another stunning polish from Indigo Bananas to show you. Meet Viridescens:Look at that awesome flakies! Flakies in a multi chrome base? Yes! This is one coat of Viridescens over black undies topped with top coat.This polish has a lovely pigmentation and the flakies spread out even and nicely. What do you think of this one?
Cypress & Cognac by fellow Dutch indie Ms. Sparkle was on my wish list since the moment I saw Emily‘s swatches. Simone, the mastermind behind Ms. Sparkle recently re-stocked this beauty and I took that chance to make it mine 😀This gorgeous multi chrome polish also has metallic green flakies running throughout. I love this combination. The formula is nice and it applies nicely. I used two coats over a black base. This polish, along with many more gorgeous polishes (and nail art supplies for those of you with crafty minds) is available at Simone’s shop. Worldwide shipping! Pssttt… Ms. Sparkle reached 2,5k followers on Instagram recently! Hurray! To celebrate this milestone, she’s having an epic giveaway! Click here to see the post, read the rules and enter 😀 Good luck!
Today I have some exciting news for you! I’ve had a hard time keeping it a secret, so here we go:
I love nail polish… *newsflash*! That’s why I finally decided to create my own polish. Whoop whoop PA is on Etsy now! On the shop page you’ll find everything you want to know about my (new) creations and sales 😉
This does absolutely NOT mean that my swatching-, nail art- and tutorial- days are over! Are you kidding me? Of course not! 😀
My very first treasures are now available at the shop. There are five lovely shades to choose from, all made with super concentrated Spectraflair (35) for the ultimate rainbow effect. And there’s a holo top coat too, also made with Spectraflair:
And here’s a sneak peek of the ‘Out of Space Reloaded collection’ which consists of five color shifting (or duo-/ multichrome) polishes and one holographic glitter topper. These beauties are available from August 20:International shipping? Of course! 😀
3-free? Got that right!
And yeah, of course I welcome custom orders! I feel that your nails say a lot about you. So, if you’re looking for that particular polish but can’t find it anywhere? Don’t hesitate to contact me. I’d be happy to create something unique especially for you. With love!
Last but not least: a big shout out for my girl Brijit! Just to let you know how much I appreciate your tips and tricks 😉
You all know Brijit from Brijits Digits right? Did you know that, besides blogging, she also creates her own nail polish? We’ve got ourselves another European indie maker 😀 Yay! Click on the image below to view her creations:Here are swatches of three of her many lovely creations:
Out of Peach, a pinky peach creme polish with golden shimmer and matte hex glitter in gray. Isn’t it gorgeous? The formula is, as with all of these three, great and easy to work with. This is two generous coats plus top coat:Full Maroon, a dusty maroon hue packed with lots of sparkleness. I don’t think I have anything similar to this in my stash. It’s lovely! Definitely a perfect shade for Fall. Shown here is two coats plus top coat: Peahen Party, a bright purple hue packed with lots of different size and shape glitter in green, purple and even blue. You know I love purple so it’s no surprise that this is my favorite of these three. The formula is a bit thicker than the other two. I think that’s because there’s neon pigment in the formulation. We all know that those are a big pain in the behind to work with, let alone adding it to nail polish. And the big bonus: no fishing or re placing of the glitter needed! It spreads nice and even. So, thumbs up Brijit! This is two coats plus top coat:Get your Brijit’s Digits polishes here! And while you’re there, I’d highly recommend to add one (or two or maybe three) of Brijit’s cuticle oil to your shopping cart! They are perfect and smell divine!
Ps.: like most Indie polishes, these are created with love in limited quantities. If you see something you like, you might want to grab it while it’s still available 😉 I feel like a rich girl having these unique awesomeness in my stash 😀
Thank you Brijit for giving me the opportunity to try some of your creations! You rock!
Louise, the genius behind Love Nailz and I again joined forces which resulted in this duo nail polish: Sabrina Duo (in case you didn’t know already: that’s me :D), which consists of two polishes called Hope and Care. Louise created this duo to raise awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. Isn’t she the best?! Thank you sweetheart! This means a lot!
This duo is now available through her Etsy shop for $12.00. All profits from the sales of this polish duo will be donated to Multiple Sclerosis Research. Specifically MS Society. Here’s my swatch of Care, a stunning red/purple duo toned shade with red micro shreds. This is opaque in two flawless coats. I used three here without top coat. It’s perfect for layering too, to create a totally different look. Obviously Louise knows exactly what I love 🙂
And below you see Hope, a mix of ultra fine holographic silver, red and black glitter. This is three easy coats on it’s own. The picture is taken in daylight which reveals to me a unique look. I have never seen a polish like this before. A generous coat over a black base will bring out the holo effect of the fine glitter. See Louise’s swatch at the top of this post. Isn’t this the most amazing way to raise awareness? And even if you’re not in to polish I bet you can make someone who does very happy! So, what are you waiting for? Head over to Louise’s Etsy shop and get yourself this beautiful polish duo for $12.00. Remember: all profits from the sales of this polish duo will be donated to Multiple Sclerosis research.
And if you prefer a donation you can do that here.
Today’s featured indie brand on the blog: Piper Polish, a creation by Erin Piper.Let’s jump right into the swatches:
Not So Basic Grupple, a sheer light grey base packed with different size blue and silver glitter. The formula is good. The glitter spreads easily and don’t stick together. I used one coat over a greyish blue base (ANNY Blue fashion show). Night Fall, a steel grey duochrome that shifts from blue to purple and even pink. As with most duochromes I had a hard time photographing the color shifting 😦 I created a triangle french tip by using two thin coats of Night Fall over a black base (China Glaze Liquid Leather). Cotton Candy, a clear base packed with different size and color glitter. A true glitterbomb! I created a gradient by slightly dabbing Cotton Candy over China Glaze’s Tart-y for the party. Color Of The Year, a vibrant green cream with blue and purple shimmer. This one has a fantastic formula! This is two easy coats on its own.
What do you think of these? Any favorites?
