Hello all! I hope you are having a good day. Today I have 3 Polish ‘M polishes to show you: Beach Walk, Key Lime, and Tropical Mango. These are all from last year.
Beach Walk is a light sky blue based crelly polish with glitters of dark blue, aqua, light blue, and purple. Formula was very sheer, had a good thickness, and the glitters spread well; it does dry matte. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
Key Lime is a light green based crelly polish with glitters of blue, green, lime green, and dark blue. Formula was very sheer with a good thickness; it does dry matte. The patchiness you see on the nails was not really apparent in real life. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
Tropical Mango is a pinky orange based crelly polish with glitters of red, pink, purple. Formula was sheer with a good thickness; it does dry matte. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
Surprisingly, Tropical Mango ended up being my favorite. Which one do you like best?
I was feeling super meh about doing my nails one week and decided to google “striped nail art designs” when this manicure by Paulina’s Passions popped up. I wanted to do something similar and here’s what I came up with using Pretty & Polished Weather the Storm, Polish ‘M Festival of Fall, and KBShimmer Poppy Kisses.
I started off with Weather the Storm on all fingers except my thumb and ring finger. This is a stormy grey-blue dusty creme. Good formula, though I needed 3 coats for evenness. This is 3 coats plus top coat.
On my thumb and ring finger, I used Festival of Fall. This is a “teal leaning dark blue base with blue/green/gold duochrome shimmer, galaxy holo, magenta holo shreds and multi-iridescent flakies“. This is 3 coats plus top coat.
Let me tell you, I feel like I should have just stopped here. But did I? Nope. 😛
Then I used striping tape and KBShimmer Poppy Kisses to create the rest of the manicure.
Maybe it was the fact that I was dreading doing all that work on my opposite hand, but this mani didn’t last much longer after taking the photos! But I’d love to know what you think of it! 🙂
Happy Thanksgiving Day to all my American readers and happy Thursday to everyone else! 😛 I hope that you will have an enjoyable day, and failing that, plenty of booze to help you get through any political discussions. 😉 Just a quick post to show you my manicure that I have on my nails today with Polish ‘M Instant Human (Just Add Coffee), Bad Bitch Polish Chestnut, and Fancy Gloss Mystery Box Prototype.
I used 2 coats plus top coat of Bad Bitch Polish Chestnut on my index finger. Just like all of BBP cremes, this was pretty much flawless, and didn’t need top coat for shininess.
On my pinky finger, I used 3 thin coats of Polish ‘M Instant Human (Just Add Coffee). This is a dark brown base with gold shimmer, gold, silver, orange, green, blue, and purple glitters. Good formula, a teeny bit thin for me but I like my formulas on the thicker side.
On my thumb, middle, and ring fingers, I started off with a base of white. Then on my thumb and ring fingers, I used a Fancy Gloss Mystery Box Prototype. This is an orange base with red and green-gold teeny flakes.
On my middle finger, I used the Fancy Gloss and Chestnut in a needle drag technique. It isn’t my best needle drag but I’m okay with it. I finished off with a bow charm (last used in this Barbie freehand nail art manicure).
Anyway, this was a fun little manicure to do! I hope you have an enjoyable day – I get to splurge and have a piece of pie, with the doctor’s blessing even! That reminds me, I haven’t written an update on this pregnancy lately and I really should – so much to say. But, another day!
Oh boy, this post is a long time coming, isn’t it? Valentine’s Day polishes in October? Oh well! I love to show off good polishes at any time of the year. 😉 This trio was exclusive to the Facebook fan group for Polish ‘M and includes Cupid’s Love, Sweets for the Sweet, and XOXOX.
Cupid’s Love is a gray jelly polish with glitters of light blue, blue, and fuschia. Formula was good, a bit thin. I had good glitter coverage with each coat. This is 3 coats plus top coat. Continue reading
Hi everyone! Do you ever have a month where it seems birthdays and anniversaries are flipping rampant? That’s how September is for me – between my husband’s family and mine, it’s chockfull! Speaking of chockfull, this post is going to be full of pictures of the beautiful Polish ‘M La Quinta, so you’ve been forewarned. 😉 I used my lightbox, natural indoor light, sunlight, and shade for the following photos.
La Quinta was the exclusive polish from Polish ‘M that she had available at the Indie Shop May 2016 event. Luckily, I was able to snag one because Michelle (the owner) had made just a few extras. Continue reading
Morning all! I’ve been waiting to show you this nail art using the Polish ‘M Rest & Relaxation collection [previously swatched], but I held off until the collection launched for real! Well, that day is today. This will launch today at 12 pm PST (1pm MST, 2pm CST, 3pm EST) at polishm.com. Each polish is $9; the cuticle oil will be on sale for $7, and other nail polishes will be on sale as well. Okay, onto the nail art!
I started with a base of Indigo Bananas Smoke on the Otter, which is from the most recent Creme a la Mode box. This is 2 coats and no top coat.
I then used all of the Rest & Relaxation collection, minus the crellies, using the water-spotted technique.
I used each color in turn, for 3-4 colors per finger. It ended up being very sparkly and really eye-catching! I think I came out rather well, what do you think? Don’t forget to check out my previous post with all the photos of each polish and then stop by Polish ‘M today!
Hi everyone! I’m so excited to show you today this 10-piece nail polish collection from Polish ‘M called the Rest & Relaxation collection. Doesn’t Spook the cat look so relaxed with them below?
This collection will launch in conjunction with the Indie Shop Event on May 21 and then will be available later this summer. I know I appreciate larger nail polish collection being made available for a longer period of time because then I can space out my purchases.
I will add that I had the darndest time getting these to show up on camera how bright they were in real life. Just trust me, they are so bright in person! You’ll see different lighting in this post: lightbox set up, shade, and direct sun.
Formula-wise: I’m going to talk about formula first, as it was pretty much the same across the board. I used a thin coat first, allowed to dry, then applied a thicker second coat. Except for the two crelly polishes, which I’ll talk about below, I used 2 coats plus top coat (as they dry matte) for the following 8 polishes.
