Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food Review!

Published

on

Happy Friday! Today I have a little review for you for a product from Nail Pattern Boldness called Glitter Food. Glitter Food has a couple of uses, both as a top coat and a way to fix sinky glitters! A couple of months ago Allison from Nail Pattern Boldness sent me over a bottle of Glitter Food to try out and I’ve been testing it out a bunch to the point of needing to buy another bottle soon!

What I’ve been using Glitter Food for the most is as a top coat over top coat hungry glitters, you might have seen me mentioning it lately when I’ve posted swatches of the textured polishes we’ve been seeing lately. Glitter Food is what I’ve been loving to put on before I put on my regular top coat, it acts as a good buffer between the glitter and my other top coat so I don’t need as many coat of top coat. I have really been loving this lately, I’ve been putting it over every glitter I’ve worn, wear time has been great every time I’ve worn this as a top coat.

Glitter Food does dry to a bit of a satin finish and can look a little cloudy on it’s own so you do need to layer another top coat over it…that completely gets rid of the cloudiness and the semi matte finish. I’ve also found that Glitter Food gets a little thick over time and if you don’t thin it when it starts getting that way it will shrink the polish you put it over. That’s a pretty minor downside since it’s such an easy thing to fix!

Other than being a really awesome top coat Glitter Food can be used as a way to fix glitters with sinking problems. I’m sure we all have problems with glitters like that, I’ve collected quite a few indies over the last year or so where all the glitter sinks straight to the bottom of the polish. I was just putting them in my helmer and forgetting about them because I’m too lazy to shake a polish for 10 minutes before I want to wear it. I pulled out one of my worst offenders to show you guys how Glitter Food can fix it.

I took a little eye dropper and sucked out all the base liquid that was separated and sitting at the top of the bottle. Once all that liquid was out I replaced it with Glitter Food. I shook and shook, even stuck an orange stick inside the bottle  to get the glitter off the bottom. After about 15 minutes everything was back to being how it looked when Holy Grail first came into my life ages ago.

After I took the photo above I put Holy Grail on my desk and let it sit to see what would happen. A week later I took the photo below, as you can see everything is still suspended. Pre-Glitter Food it would have all sunk back down within a day or so.

Overall I really like Glitter Food, my bottle is almost gone since I fixed a bunch of sinking glitters, I will definitely be purchasing another bottle! I really enjoy using this as a top coat as well, with as many hungry glitters as I own and wear I get a lot of use out of a top coat that kills the thirst for a bajillion coats of top coat. I’ve heard that this is also a good base coat for holos but I haven’t tried that yet…it’s on my list to do though!

Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food is available at the Nail Pattern Boldness Etsy shop . You can also find it at shop.llarowe.com for $8! I believe it’s sold out at both shops right now but Nail Pattern Boldness is restocking today so you might be able to get your paws on a bottle!

Color Club Wicked Sweet Collection Swatches

Published

on

Good Morning guys!  Hope you all had a good weekend, mine was boring…I guess that’s good? haha

Today I have for you guys swatches of the first of 2 summer collections Color Club has put for this year. This one is called Wicked Sweet. All of the polishes in this collection are scented, and there are a couple interesting combos, color wise. I have heard that this set is already popping up at Ross and is also available on some etailers like Transdesign.com and VictoriasNailSupply.com (my 2 favorites!)

First up Is Get Your Lem-On. This one was pretty sheer, but the color is fab. I don’t have anything dupey in my stash. It’s a bright highlighter yellow with a green shimmer. On it’s own I needed 4 coats for okay opacity, I could have used another but I’m not down with doing 5 coats of polish lol. I also have it layered over white on my ring finger in the pictures below. Over white I only needed 2 coats, awesome! The only downside to layering it over the white is that it seemed to kill that awesome shimmer, you could still see it but it wasn’t very noticeable 🙁 Get Your Lem-On smells like….you guessed it, Lemon Candy.

The Lime Starts Here is a bright neon green, I do like this color but it’s nothing new we haven’t seen before.  The formula was just okay, for a neon it did well, no dragging bald spotsI Always Get My Man-Darin is a bright orange packed with shimmer! I have a lot of orange in my stash, but again nothing like this one. The formula on this was pretty much exactly the same as Get Your Lem-On, very sheer. On it’s own I used 4 coats and 2 coats over white on my ring finger.

Saturday Spam: Lynnderella

Published

on

Hi guys, hope you’re all having a good weekend so far…I sure as heck am, more on that tomorrow! Today I have a big helping of spam for you….this spam is all Lynnderella! I’ve been waffling on posting this because for the past few months Lynnderella=drama. The drama associated with it turns me off the brand so I had decided not to post pictures of what I have. Then I kind of tested the waters in my Indie spam post with 1 Lynn polish and everyone liked it, so I decided what the heck I’ll just post everything I have that I haven’t shown before in one post. Hope you guys enjoy!

If you want to buy Lynnderella polishes it’s a bit of a process…you have to send in a wish list to Llarowe then wait for your last name to come up in her rotations. I think the 1st rotation of wish lists is still going on so depending on your last name you could be waiting for like 4-5 months, it wasn’t too bad for me but I know some people are frustrated with the wait. I know the waiting sucks but I do like that at least you get everything you want eventually. It’s worth it just to avoid the mad dash of trying to get things before they sell out in .5 seconds during re-stocks. Right now Llarowe is not accepting wish lists but last I heard she would be taking them again soon-ish.

Alright guys…I’m just going to tell you what I layered these over (for most of the polishes) instead of writing a little novel about each! Hope ya don’t mind!

Boy Girl Party over Zoya Ginessa. FYI there is diamond shaped glitter in this…LOVE!!

Very Pretty Vampire over OPI Black Onyx. I actually really don’t love this combo but I was losing daylight so I couldn’t re-do it. My favorite way to wear VPV is over purple!

piCture pOlish New Collaboration Shades: Siren Song, Geode, Douceur & Imperial

Published

on

Hi guys! Today I have 4 of the 5 new collaboration shades from piCture pOlish to share with you! These were released a couple of weeks ago and I couldn’t wait for them to show up at my house. I always love the collaboration shades, it’s fun to read the posts of the girls who created the shades plus I usually feel like these are shades I want too but don’t already own.

Douceur is a light nude/beige base with fuchsia glitter mixed throughout. This was a collaboration with Tartofraises somehow I had never heard of her blog but since getting her shade I’ve been over there looking through her posts and she does really beautiful nail art! To read her post about the shade check out her blog here.  The formula was good, it was more opaque than I expected it to be and it wasn’t streaky at all.

Imperial is a super vibrant purple with a heavy blue shimmer and gold glitter. This is a collaboration with Jeanette of The Swatchaholic. I was so excited to see this one, Jeanette is a blogger that I’ve become friends with over the last couple years and I had no doubt that if piCture pOlish ever collaborated with her it would be gorgeous. Well, let me tell you Imperial is insanely gorgeous…this is one of my favorite collaboration shades ever and will most likely be a favorite for 2013 for me. I wore it all of last week and was sad to take it off.

Imperial is super vibrant, more so in real life than it appears in photos, I’m also dying over the stunning blue shimmer in this. I loved how the shimmer was visible in the sun and didn’t disappear in the shade.  If you want to read about how Jeanette came up with Imperial and see her beautiful photos of it check out her blog here. The formula was good, it was nice and opaque…I had no issues with application. This does dry a bit matte due to the neon pigment in it.

Siren Song is a sea foam green with a silver flecked shimmer. This is a collaboration with Rebecca Likes Nails. This shade was inspired Fender guitars & bass guitars by Mark & Tom from Blink 182. Ah yes…now that’s my kind of inspiration I love me some Blink 182 and have seen them live several times throughout the years…even stood in like for like 6 hours about 10 years ago to meet them (now I feel old btw). I love the shimmer/glitter in this. It’s bigger than shimmer but smaller than micro glitter…it’s interesting! To read more about the inspiration and naming of Siren Song check out Rebecca’s post here. The formula was good, it was a bit streaky on the first coat but perfect with the second coat.

All of the new Collaboration shades are available on the piCture pOlish website, along with at their network of etailers all over the world like LlaroweHarlow & Co and Nail Polish Canada. For a full list of etailers all over the world check out the piCture pOlish website here.
