Review: Pretty & Polished Candy Coated

Onwards to review all the indie polishes!  I've got another from the haul I received last week to show you today, this time Candy Coated from Pretty & Polished.  Look at that, my shorted segue into actually talking about the polish yet!

Candy Coated is a pretty baby pink with a ton of purple and silver glitter smattered throughout.  As a side note, I'm really having to get creative lately with my use of adjectives.  There really is only so many ways to describe glitter in a polish :).  Anyway, application for this was really good, this is three coats as I'm not quite done growing out the terrible green stains on my nails.  The glitter distributed itself evenly which is always nice. 







The Verdict:  Looks like candy, as advertised.  Reminds me of those chocolate eggs you get at easter which makes this quite well timed.  Super girly, super cool.

  1. This color is beautiful! I wish I could get a hold of it. :( I was never one to really paint my nails, but thanks to your blog, I'm now obsessed and loving it!

  2. You know what? I'm so jealous if you it's insane.
    You have so many amazing indie polishes, but when I look on Etsy they're either on holiday or the shipping to the UK is horrendous :( I would love to find some UK indie nail polish sellers but I don't know any!

    1. :( I'm super jelly of people that live in the States. We in Canada get charged ridiculous shipping despite being so close to the border.

      Is there anything I can do to help? Want to do a swap? For example, I'm dyyyyying to try Fantasy Fire but hate to resort to ebay for such things.

Review: Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles is Accurately Named

It's amazing what you can find when you wander around at night.  My favourite time to go shopping is ridiculously late and I'm extra happy when it pays off.  I've been looking for Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles for a while now at that couldn't be more up my alley if it tried.  I finally managed to find it in a Shoppers last night and it really does live up to its name. A Million Sparkles is a predominately blue glitter that has an amazing ability to look like a foil after a couple of coats.  Combine that with gold, silver and pink bar glitter and you have a winner.  It's seriously so sparkly I got distracted from what I was saying at lunch today.  Application is decent but you really need four coats to get completely opaque coverage.  That's ok, glitter dries fast.  It's a little rough too but nothing Seche Vite can't fix.  The Verdict:  Yay glitter! If, like me, you like sparklies to the point where it's the biggest tag on y

I'm a Proper Mermaid This Time Beeeeaches

Ermerger guys, I don't have any glitter on me!  Well, I do, just on my nails.  I always have glitter on me.  And cat fluff.  It's funny how often my bf comes home with glitter in his beard.  That means it's been there all day... Anyway, new nail vinyls mean something a bit different.  I swear I'm not actually obsessed with mermaids, it just seems like it... Anyway, again, shall we?

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop ... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.
