As promised yesterday I have a post using one of the polishes from one of my awesome Nail Pen Pals. Of course there are a few other things to share with it, I'll be bringing you more posts about some of the other products/companies I used for this mani, so stay tuned for those.
I used Skin Food's Nail Vita BL505 Green Apple as my main color. This polish goes on like a dream!
|Skin Food Nail Vita BL505 3 coats no top coat|
I used 3 coats in the picture. I have to tell you that it is a sheer polish, but can be built up with more coats. I am not a fan of sheer polishes or having a visible nail line normally, but I didn't mind at all with this polish. I have read some reviews that call it a jelly polish, but it isn't as thick as most jelly polishes that I have used. I would consider it a sheer creme, but it definitely could be used like a jelly. I have to admit I was mesmerized by how shiny it was even with no top coat. I definitely recommend grabbing a bottle if you can, I love it that much!
Here are my nails topped with Hit Polish Seahorse and a nail decal from RLR Creations. I Will be raving more about those two companies in several posts in the future. I just love the glitter combo paired with the polish, then add an awesome pair of eyeballs, cuteness overload!
|There is no topcoat on over the glitter either, you don't need it with this polish. Everything lays flat and 98% smooth!|
|I intentionally put the decal upside down because I think it looks cute with crows feet LOL.|
Sorry for the cuticles and dry skin, I can't seem to find anything that will help. It also doesn't help that I have picked up a habit of picking at the skin around my nails when I'm anxious. I do have something I plan on trying very soon, which is a cuticle creme made by Evil Shades Cosmetics. It comes in several different scents and 3 different sizes, so look for a review on that soon too!
Thank you for taking the time to read my ramblings . I am going to give you links below to all of the companies fan pages and shops that I mentioned above, check them out, you may find something that you can't live without!
You can also find Skin Food products on Ebay
They are closed while they gear up for a huge 4 day Black Friday sale!
If you look around you will find some limited edition polishes and a lippie (Robot Love) that is great for layering or use it alone, plus it is cupcake scented!!!!!!! I love all of Evil Shades products and recommend them to anyone, heck even my kids use her products. I trust her products that much!
Peace, Love and Cupcakes!
