Play Love Laugh Review

Standard

Today I have something different for you. I was sent product from Play Love Laugh, a vegetable and fruit based peel off nail polish for kids. Unlike regular polish, it peels off after soaking it in warm water. This is exciting for me since my 6 year old daughter like to have her hands in her mouth all the time. I was sent two colors for review, Really Teally Fun and Sweet Purple. I included my daughter in this review since hey, it is for kids! Up first is Sweet Purple.

As you can see it’s a very pretty purple with shimmer. I did my nails normally to see how it would work for me as an adult, meaning, I used my normal POBC, and topcoat. The only thing with this is because it isn’t normal nail polish clean up with acetone didn’t quite work well. Any big clean up spots I found I could peel off and then get the finer pieces with my acetone brush.

Due to the nature of the product there was dried polish in the top of the bottle and it ended up having just a few chunky bits in it, but nothing overwhelming. The polish dries super fast with no smell at all, opaque in 2-3 coats.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, Play Laugh Love Sweet Purple, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

My daughter’s blogging premiere! She was way to excited to be working with Mommy on her blog. With her application I just put the nail polish on, no topcoat, since that kind of defeats the purpose. As you can see it’s still sparkly just with not as much of a gloss finish. I’ll post an update on my Instagram on how it held up on her, but she does chew her fingers and is rough on polish, since she is 6. She liked it a lot because it dried so quickly. Dry time is always an issue with her since she wants to get up and go, but it wasn’t nearly as bad with this polish. Opacity with this one was two coats.

Here we are together, my favorite shot of the entire review! In the end, I think this polish is an amazing product for someone looking for a natural polish, or kids. I will absolutely use this on my daughter again, me, probably not. Not that the product is bad, at all, I just didn’t like clean up for myself, but I hope to pick up more colors for my daughter in the future and phase out her normal polish.

Chirality: Distant Lands Review

Standard

It’s been a while since I did a polish from Chirality, which is a shame because it is one of my favorite indies. I decided to do another one from the mc Chris For The Win collection, Distant Lands to be specific. This polish is a greenish teal crelly with black, purple and holographic glitters.

image

As you can see, it’s beautiful in the bottle, and not a lot of sinking of the large glitters either.

image

image

image

Absolutely no fishing with this polish, which was a big surprise with those big circle glitters. As you can see there are all kinds of different sizes and colors of glitter in there. The dry time was excellent, and the formula is good, but as with most polishes with large glitters you need a few coats of top coat to smooth it out. I did two coats of Distant Lands to reach opacity.

Glitter or Die: Freespirit Review

Standard

Hi everyone!  Back again, and so soon!  Told you I’d be getting back to it after the holidays.  Today I have a new to me indie,  Glitter or Die, up for review.  I picked up Freespirit, one half of her birthday duo. It is a beautiful shifty polish, with a large range of colors and shifty microglitter.

image

I actually just have to say that she has one of my favorite logos for an indie,  it definitely goes with the name! 

image

image

image

It was very hard to capture all the real life changes of color in the polish, but trust me, it’s there.  The microglitter is very subtle but it’s almost like a secret surprise laying in the polish. The glitter did sink, so definitely make sure to mix it well and let it sit upside down for a bit before use if you pick this one up.

Products used: Qtica,  Orly Bonder basecoat, Glitter or Die Freespirit,  I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

I have to say too, I’ve been wearing this for a decent amount of days, which I usually don’t get to do with any polish, and it’s barely chipped at all. I highly recommend this brand if you haven’t tried it yet, and I plan on picking up a lot more of her beauties in the future!  Also, her shipping charges are really inexpensive, so you aren’t paying much more than the original price! Info for the shop is below, and as always, thanks for reading! ^_^

Digital Nails: Whack With Poo Brain Review

Standard

I, like many other people, have fibromyalgia, so I was very excited to see the Fi-Bros for Life collab box from ellagee and Digital Nails.  This was my first indie purchase when it initially came out.  Today I have one half of the box for you, Whack With Poo Brain,  from Digital Nails.

image

As you can see, it’s a beautiful sheer purple,  with black, white, and iridescent glitters.  The name was inspired by one of her favorite shows, Adventure Time, and the fun part of fibromyalgia where all information seems to suddenly drop out of your head.

image

image

It’s a pretty crelly, and I did three coats to reach this opacity.   It applied well, and has average dry time.  I really love things that represent me, and this nailed it, pun intended.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone,  Digital Nails Whack With Poo Brain, ellagee Glass topcoat.

ellagee has some of these limited edition boxes left if you’re interested, and when they are gone, they’re gone.  For the box click here.  All other information for the store is below, and as always, thanks for reading!  ^_^

My Kinda Color: Three Polish Review

Standard

I received three polishes from Nail Polish Rack Factory’s brand new line of polishes, My Kinda Color.  I loved them all just from the pictures, so I was excited to try them.  Patty, the owner, charges a rock bottom price of $5 a bottle also, which is a great price point for an indie brand.  On to the holo filled goodness!

Up first I have Diva, a beautiful shade of purple,  with holo glitter throughout the polish.

image

image

Diva has an awesome formula that was opaque in two coats.  It’s super blingy with all the holo glitter.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, My Kinda Color Diva, ellagee Glass topcoat.

The second one I received is Gold & Diamonds.  I’m not a gold person usually, but I love this shade and how it looks.

image

image

Gold & Diamonds had the same consistency as Diva and was opaque in two coats as well.  Again, gorgeous.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat,  My Kinda Color Gold & Diamonds, ellagee Glass topcoat.

The third and final polish is Emily.  I picked this one because it reminds me of my birthstone, I’m a December baby!

image

image

Again, consistent formula, with two coat opacity.  This is now my favorite blue I own, it’s absolutely beautiful.  I also did something fun with this polish, check it out here.

Products used: Dainty Digits Glitter Be Gone basecoat,  My Kinda Color Emily, Duri Revacote,  I,A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

This is definitely a brand to watch out for, her formula and consistency in each polish is awesome,  plus great colors.  All information for the store is below, and while you’re there check out her nail polish racks too, they are great!

Forever Polished: Dragon Party Review

Standard

I recently was a lucky winner in an Instagram contest and won a gift certificate to Forever Polished and Dragon Party was one of the polishes I picked.  Now, to anyone that knows me, purple is my absolute favorite color, so Dragon Party was a no brainer.  It is a dark squishy jelly with black and iridescent glitters in a bunch of different shapes.

image

Shipping was very fast, and I wasn’t disappointed when I opened the package.  It dries to a matte finish, but looks fantastic with topcoat as well.

image

For all the glitter, it dries rather smooth, which is nice if you chose to wear it like this.

image

image

image

I took pictures in all kinds of light because this polish looks different depending on what type of light it’s under.   You will see below in the macro how it looks a different shade in that light as well. 

image

I did two coats for opacity.  The formula was a little thicker, but, not hard to work with at all.  Again, I’m impressed how smooth it is without topcoat.  Dry time was very fast and I had no smudging issues.  I actually hit my one nail with my orange stick and I just patted it down and it looked like nothing had ever happened.

Products used: Duri Revacote,  Orly Bonder, Forever Polished Dragon Party, ellagee Glass topcoat.

All contact information for  Forever Polished below.  She has a lot of very beautiful shades, and polishes that look different than other ones I’ve seen.   As always, thanks for reading! ^_^

Smokey Mountain Lacquers: Twilight Adventure Review

Standard

Today I have Smokey Mountain Lacquers new fall polish Twilight Adventure up for review.  This is my first polish from her and I was excited to try it.

image

Twilight Adventure is an ultra chrome that shifts between purple, blue, and green.  It was hard to capture all the beautiful shifts in the polish.  I was unable to get a sun picture since the outdoors weren’t cooperating, but if I catch it when I’m outside I will post it to my Instagram.   Here are a few shots of it at different angles.

image

image

image

I did three thin layers of the polish and I believe it would of looked a bit better with four.  Here is a macro with LED light to show more shift.

image

You can definitely see the blue more in this photo.  Dry time did take a smidge longer, but it wasn’t horrible.  The polish wasn’t thick at all and applied well.  Overall I really liked this polish and plan on purchasing more.

Products used: Duri Revacote,  Orly Bonder,  Smokey Mountain Lacquers’ Twilight Adventure,  ellagee Glass Topcoat.
