Jindie Nails Candy Cane

I have a polish to share with you today from Jindie Nails called Candy Cane. It is a beautiful white based polish with different size and shaped glitters in red and green, it even has large matte red glitter as well. This polish is part of their Santa Claws Collection that has 9 different polishes.

I was very selective with which polishes I grabbed from indie companies holiday collections, mainly due to a lack of funds. I browsed and browsed some more until I had a few picked out that I had to have, and Candy Cane was on top of that list. For me it was the perfect combo of red, green and white for the Christmas season. I set out on a mission to get it, luckily I caught a restock and grabbed it up. I bought a mini sized bottle, the price is great ($4.25) and I knew I would only need the smaller bottle since the colors are too Christmasy for me to wear throughout the year.

For this look I started with Sally Hansen Insta Dry in Whirlwind White and then 2 coats of Jindie Nails Candy Cane. You could also just use 2-3 coats of Candy Cane by itself and have good opacity. I didn't use a top coat on this one because all the glitters went on nicely. I could barely feel the glitter when I ran my finger over it, so I knew there would be no snagging. I did have to fish for the larger matte glitter, but that is pretty typical of polishes with larger glitters. I really love all the teeny tiny sparkly green glitter in this polish, I think it adds to the Christmas magic feel of it.

I wore this polish for 3 days and had no chipping and really no tip wear to speak of, since I didn't use a topcoat with it. I had several compliments on it from people at my doctors office and then my moms doctors office. I even had to write the name and site down for 2 ladies. 

I had excellent customer service, though shipping was slower than usual Jen is keeping all of her customers updated regularly on her progress with orders. She included a letter with orders apologizing for the delay and also the changes she plans to make for faster shipping when she opens up again. Jen has graciously owned her mistake in doing pre orders on some of her polishes and is doing her very best to correct it. I applaud her character and her drive to make things right and keep her customers happy. This is a handmade business, people will make mistakes from time to time, just like any of us do. I think we should try to remember in our frustration that these women/men are usually a one person show, they are growing and learning. As frustrated as we can get, imagine their frustration and heartache when they know their customers are disappointed. For me, part of the great thing of buying indie/handmade is seeing a business learn and grow. So thank you Jen for being so loyal to your customers and doing your best to make things right!

*The shop is closed at the moment due to an extreme number of sales. Jen is working very hard to get caught up and has even hired some help. She has been keeping customers updated often of her progress on her fan page and in her shop announcement on Etsy.*

Do you own any polishes from Jindie Nails? What holiday polish (any brand) is your favorite?

*Products purchased by me, all opinions are my own.*

Peace, Love and Cupcakes!


  1. I don't own any holiday polishes. My idea of holiday polish is to slap red or green on & then some gold or silver, that's my speed. This looks really pretty, but I still think of high school when we'd paint our nails with white out whenever I see white polish. I guess I'm still not used to white polishes. :)
    Great Post Cupcake!

  2. Hahaha I agree, white polish is a hard polish for me too. I think it makes my nails look extra wide, but it doesn't stop me from getting them anyway LOL. Thank you Moonkin :)
