Polish Alcoholic on ETSY

etsy1Hi loves!

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 πŸ˜‰

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:

Brijit’s Digits Boutique

brijits digitsHi!

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 πŸ˜€ Yay! Click on the image below to view her creations:Eclair White Outline Doily Square BoutiqueHere 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:brijits digits out of peachFull 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: brijits digits full maroonPeahen 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:brijits digits peahen partyGet 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 πŸ˜‰ I feel like a rich girl having these unique awesomeness in my stash πŸ˜€

Thank you Brijit for giving me the opportunity to try some of your creations! You rock!


Love Nailz: The Sabrina Duo

iusb_760x100.11800620_ew6iHappy Friday beauties!

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.Β il_570xN.459643540_oad0
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 πŸ™‚

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. sabrina duo2Isn’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.Β  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.

Thanks so much!

Piper Polish

Today’s featured indie brand on the blog: Piper Polish, a creation by Erin Piper.piper polishLet’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). piper polish not so basic grupple
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).piper polish night fall
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.piper polish cotton candy
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.piper polish color of the year
What do you think of these? Any favorites?
