Morning all! I just realized today is my mama’s birthday – or would have been anyway. I’ll go lay flowers at her grave later today and say hello. For today’s nail polish, I’m showing you Mint to Be Mine by Poetry Cowgirl Nail Polish.
Mint to Be Mine is a white toned crelly with glitters of white, gold, mint, coral. Though this applies sheer, it has a good consistency. This is 3 coats plus top coat.
I also just realized I’ve probably had this polish for 2 years before I tried it out. Dang. Maybe I should get better about trying out my untrieds!
Afternoon all! I’m feeling accomplished today because I’ve been slowing clearing out my backlog of polishes that I’ve bought and never swatched. So instead of probably over 300 polishes, I think I’m down to about 150. I know, I know…. I have a problem. But today how’s about we look at Poetry Cowgirl Nail Polish Crocuses in the Snow, Wildflowers on the Hill, and Fields of Lavender. Continue reading
Oh my gosh! Old mani alert! 😛 This mani is from way back in June. Uhh, oops? Anyway, let’s take a look at this sort of failure with Poetry Cowgirl Snowfall, Pahlish Test Batch Highgarden, and Morgan Taylor West Coast Cool.
Pahlish Test Batch: Highgarden is a mid-toned holographic purple with purple flakes. No complaints on formula! This is 2 coats plus top coat.
I didn’t get a chance to swatch Morgan Taylor West Coast Cool, so here are some more pics of Highgarden. But WCC is a gorgeous blue polish that will stain (sorry to say!).
Poetry Cowgirl Snowfall is a jelly white base with varying sizes of white, black, and iridescent glitters. It does dry matte, and had good glitter coverage. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
I started off with Snowfall, then covered up half of it with Highgarden.
Then I used a nail stripe to divide the upper half and painted over with West Coast Cool. This is where it went a bit wonky. Did I mention I was staying up late to create this before we went on vacation the next day? All I’m saying is, I wasn’t at my best. 😛
So individually I like these polishes on their own, and perhaps I like them together. But definitely not with this design! What do you think?
