American Classics Growth Spurt base coat, 1 coat
CrowsToes Nail Color Tell Me About It…STUD, 3 coats. As it is a jelly base, I needed 3 coats for complete coverage. Otherwise formula and application was wonderful.

August Polish Pickup Pack (please check out the FAQs if PPU is new to you) is fast coming up – August 3-6 and this month’s theme is “musicals”. Madame Crow over at CrowsToes Nail Color picked “Grease” – specifically the scene where Sandy unveils her new look to Danny. The maker describes this as a “saturated black jelly base with red shift shimmer and assorted coordinating micro glitters.” It will be available for $12, and there will be no cap.
I know it’s a cheesy movie, I know parts of it are problematic, but darned if the songs aren’t catchy and the lines so quotable! This particular scene always fascinated me for the simple fact that Olivia Newton-John looked amazing in that outfit. I wanted to be her, and I wanted a boyfriend just like Danny.
This polish encapsulates this scene perfectly. It’s dark and sexy with a hint of brightness. The red makes it glow but the blue sparks make it incredible! I called it summer goth and I think it’s amazing. I happen to think it suits my short nails quite well!
Remember that this will only be available from August 3-6 at Polish Pickup Pack! Pick your bottle up for $12. 😀
P.S. On a separate note, I know my photos are a little different than usual – I don’t have my nail area set up yet in the new house so bear with me! 🙂 ❤
