Etsy Mania!! Wonder Beauty Products Hippie Fest

Happy Friday!!

  Today I have, you guessed it.. MOAR Etsy polish!!! The shop today: Wonder Beauty Products. Something seemed unique about this shop and her creations and this particular mica- flake creation really caught my eye. And yes.... They come in a little jar!
 So Hippie Fest is a mix of irregular shaped flakes in Blue, Green and Purple suspended in a micro Green glitter base. For this look I layered Hippie Fest over Butter London Primrose Hill Picnick. I really like this polish and the whimsical effect it creates. And to clarify the polish already comes blended in the jar. It is polish.. In a jar!

So when I saw that it was actually a jar of polish I was all....
 But it became apparent VERY quick that this is quite the genius idea for polishes like this one as it made it so easy to pick out the shardy bits. She sends you your jar of color, a little mixing stick and a bottle of clear that comes with a brush that you dip into your jar. This particular polish does settle out and requires a good mixing before using.
Thoughts on Hippie Fest? Thoughts on jarred polish?

  1. Wow, this looks amazing. And that's such a different idea using a jar instead of a bottle.

  3. Seems kind of genius for glitter polishes that tend to
    A) Sink to the bottom
    B) Require digging to get a variety of all the pretty glitters!
    Cool :)

  4. Thank you for reviewing Hippie Fest. I ordered Hippie Fest from Wonder Beauty (last Saturday). I have been wondering how the polish would look over colored polish. It looks Fabulous!!! I can't wait to receive mine:)

  9. Did you have to stir for each nail? I've used similar polishes in jars and I had a hard time with it! It kept settling out...

  15. If you order one that's not meant to be a layering polish (or you won't use it as a layering polish) the system is a lot less effective- it's very hard to get just the right amount of both each time you need more polish. But I do think it's a great idea for glitters that don't need to be opaque or perfectly even!

  16. Totally ingenious idea! Do you think it will get thicker faster because more air is exposed to it?

    I've made it a plan to order Esty makeup and polish. I'm so blown away with all the creativity!!

  18. First let me say that this look is amazing! It looks like you have jewels on your nails. It's so beautiful. And the jar idea is genius. A wide opening to get out flakes like that would save me a lot of frustration. Thanks for sharing!

  19. One of my first Etsy polishes was actually from them. I ordered Rhinestones & Pearls and was a bit weirded by the jar thing but it worked really well for the glitter.

    This is a really pretty glitter from them! I don't think they had it when I ordered mine forever ago. Hehe.

  20. What a seriously cool polish--I'm going to have to check her out! The jar idea does sound totally genius for flakies and glitters. I'd be worried about spilling it all over my coffee table...though come to think of it, that might not be a bad look!

    PS: love the Jean-Luc macro ^_^

  21. I love this combo! The colors go great together. I just checked out her shop and she has some amazing colors! Hopefully she doesn't get too popular before I have enough money to order. :)

  24. Using jars might solve my frankening problem, which is that I never have enough empty bottles when I want them.

  25. The look is awesome, but I've heard using polishes in jars can cause such a hassle and the settling is awful, did you mix it for each nail?
