#IndieCollab Dollish Polish & Jindie Nails - J.F.K & Ms.Monroe LE Duo

(**Press Samples**)
Happy Thursday! 

  Who feels like a complete tool? I DO!!!!!!! Why you ask? Because I am just now getting around to posting this amazing collaboration between Dollish Polish and Jindie Nails. You may remember a few months back I shared some details about an ongoing monthly collaboration between Dollish and Jindie. They are releasing amazing duos every month inspired by famous couples through history. The duo I am sharing today is J.F.K and Ms. Monroe. This duo became available on May 16th, sadly it appears to be sold out on both the Dollish Polish Site and the Jindie Nails site. I'm guessing it might have been a feeding frenzy because these two babies are stunning, as usual :D. 
 You can go ahead and throw rocks at me for showing you these pretties now... 

Both swatches are shown with a top coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast for shine and smoothness. 

Dollish Polish Ms. Monroe- Ms. Monroe is described by Dollish Polish as a cherry red jelly loaded with lots of holographic and metallic sparkle, plus some blue/purple iridescent small glitters and flakes.  Ms. Monroe is opaque on its own in about 3 coats. This pretty is so juicy and sultry. The formula was surprisingly easy to work with and the glitter spread is perfect. I did use Three thin coats to achieve full opacity. This beauty could also be layered to create interesting textures and "crushed rubies" effect. 

Jindie Nails J.F.K- J.F.K is described by Jindie Nails as a shimmery cobalt blue with blue/green shimmer flash, loaded with gold & silver flakies, red metallic glitter, classic and light gold metallic small hexes and dots,  silver metallic smaller hex glitters and smaller dots, matte lagoon blue small and medium hex, opaque matte ocean blue medium hex. I love the shimmering blue base and the perfect blend of colors and textures suspended in the beautiful base color. I used Three thin coats for my swatch and had no issues whatsoever.


 Once again Dollish Polish and Jindie Nails knocked it out of the park with this beautiful collaboration. I can't wait to see who they will choose as their next inspiration. I'm really not sure if they plan to bring any of these collab shades back, it really does not appear so :(. That said, stay tuned with these two brands because they are always putting out amazing new creations.

#IndieCollab Dollish Polish & Jindie Nails- Romeo and Juliet LE Duo

(**Press Samples**)
Happy Caturday!! 

  Today I want to do a special Saturday post to share an epic indie collaboration between to  wonderful brands. The masterminds behind Dollish Polish and Jindie Nails decided to come together to create beautiful complimentary duos inspired by famous couples through out history. Their inaugural duo is non other than the star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet
  I am loving the concept behind this collaboration. It also reminds me of the movie "Never Been Kissed" for some reason. Don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about hahaha. You know? The prom theme is Famous Couples in history, per Josie's rec. Anyhow, these two beauties go up for grabs today on both Dollish Polish's site and Jindie Nails, and I wanted to be my usual enabler self ;).

Both swatches are shown with a top coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top. 

Dollish Polish Romeo over Jindie Nails Juliet- Romeo is described by Dollish Polish as a jam-packed glitter, with shades of turquoise, sapphire, magenta, purple, and violet hexagons, shred, and dots, accented with matte black hearts, stars, and skull/crossbones. It is a beautifully complex glitter blend that really does represent the inspiration, while still being playful.
 This topper is fairly easy to work with. It is definitely packed with all kinds of sparkling goodies. The only reason I had a bit of trouble with the larger skully and heart shapes was due to my nails being a bit shorter when I did these swatches. Yet, I still managed to get some on my nails with minor fishing or manipulation. I absolutely adore the smaller Black stars.

Jindie Nails Juliet- Juliet is described by Jindie Nails as a radiant orchid cream/jelly that is opaque in about 2 coats and has a sprinkling of periwinkle, magenta, lilac and lavender metallic small glitters plus navy blue and violet shimmery flakes.  This shade though!!! The formula is an absolute dream. I am madly in love with the delicate look the blend of smaller glitters in the crelly base. I only needed two flawless coats for my swatch. There is such a sweet and innocent quality to this color that is perfectly suited to the character it represents. Side note: been wearing this as a pedi for about a week now and it still holds strong. 
 This is my first Jindie polish, and I am so impressed with everything about this shade. I know this will definitely not be my last, or only, Jindie shade.

 The Romeo & Juliet duo is available now from both Jindie Nails and Dollish Polish. The duo retails for $20.00. Remember to check out both sites. If it is sold out on one, it might still be available on the other. These ladies knocked it out of the park with this collaboration. I can't wait to see what else they have in store for us. I also love seeing two wonderful creators working together. What is better than one awesome indie? Two awesome indies working together!

Thanks for stopping by and happy Caturday!

Happy October!! Kicking the Month Off in a Bettina and Dollish Polish Halloween Watermarble

(**Press Samples**)
Good afternoon loves and happy October!! 

  I am just in awe that it is already October! So I have decided to kick off the month in a fun Halloween themed mani. I wanted to step out of the "spooky" norm and do something colorful, that still felt "Halloween" to me. What better way to do this than by doing a candy-looking watermarble? Of course I turned to my trusty Bettina shades for the marble. I actually had a lot of fun working on these because I intentionally wanted the patterns to be random on each nail.

 To really bring it to "Halloween speed" I layered Dollish Polish Somethings up With Jack from last year's Halloween collection. Which, BTW, will be making a short comeback this year for Two weeks on October 6th. I also accented my middle nail with a little Sugar skull water decal from O.P.I's Halloween set from last year. 
  I am so madly in love with the combination of colors and how the glitter sets everything off. The skully makes it fun and cute :D. I really think the addition of the glitter really made this mani :D. I just loved the "This is Halloween" collection so much, I had to find a way to work one of the shades into this look. 

 And of course, I have to show you guys the marble, which I am still madly in love with. So much so, that I didn't even do my signature coat of INM Northern Lights sparkles. I really wanted them to look like candies. For the marble I started with a base of Cult Nails Tempest. For the marble portion I used all Bettina shades; the green is Hopeful, the Orange shade is Epic and the Yellow is Art Deco Yellow. As usual these polishes were a dream to marble with and I could not be happier with the end result ;). I used a top coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish my whole look.

 Happy October!! I hope it's not too early to start with the Halloween looks heehee!! Halloween looks are just so fun to work on. I hope I can get a few more done before we have to buckle down for our cross country move. 

 I hope you guys enjoyed this look. Thanks for stopping by my painted beauties!

Dollish Polish Halloween Frights Collection Swatches

(**Press Samples**)
Happy Humpday!! 

 I am a baby, a huge scaredy cat. I don't do horror movies. I don't do "horror theme park nights". I remember one year I tried going to Busch Gardens Howl-O- Scream, which is apparently tame... And I left in a panic attack. I remember a boyfriend took me to see "Silent Hill" when it came out in theaters, I didn't sleep for weeks. I. DON'T. DO. HORROR. I just can't. I have this scumbag brain, that can create all sorts of horrifying images all on its own, I don't need any help hahha.... 
 That said.. I LOOOOOVE Halloween Nail Polishes.. Especially of they are by the amazing Dollish Polish! Last year Dolly blew us away with her This is Halloween Collection. Which, BTW will be making a short comeback this year for a limited time during the month of October. This year Dolly has created Eight new, horror- movie inspired polishes. Each individual polish is inspired by a cult classic horror movie and they are just spectacular!

 I must confess I've not seen most of the movies that inspired these shades, for the reason mentioned above lol. I am a huge baby, like seriouly haha. And even these beauties will not make me want to watch them hahha. Well, Ok I have seen "The Shining" and "The Exorcist"... but I hated every second of it ahhah. To see closeup swatches of these Halloween Beauties just keep on reading.

Dollish Polish This is Halloween Collection Swatches

Good Morning and happy Monday! 

  Today I have a little treat for you and them I'm outie for another week while some UH-mazing ladies fill in for me so I can hurry up and get better( not feeling so hawt today.)

  I cannot express just how much I love the Dollish Polish's Halloween Collection. This collection is inspired by the cult Disney movie "A Nightmare before Christmas". I remember when this movie came out. I remember seeing it in movie theaters and thinking it was pretty much the best thing ever. The movie still has a special place in my heart to this day. SO, when Dolly contacted me about reviewing this collection I could not reply with "YESSSSSSS!!!!" fast enough. This is collection Halloween perfection. 
 To see close up's continue reading ♥.

Dollish Polish Random Dancing over Color Club Fly with Me

Happy Thursday!!!

  Today I have another indie buy. This pretty comes to us from Dollish Polish. I first found out about this paticular glitter when I got my Random Dancing necklace from Beads Ink. I loved the pendant so much that I made it my mission to get my hands on this polish (this polish on my hands?). Dollish Polish is another one of those very elusive indie brands. They are hard to get but so worth the frustration!
For this look I wanted to create a super fun and funky look. Fly with Me by Color Club seemed like the perfect choice. And guess what? It was! How awesome is this combo? While Random Dancing is inspired by the TV show iCarly this look reminds me more of Rugrats (Oh 90's Nick how I miss thee) for some reason. Random Dancing is a mix of Large Square glitters in Blue, Purple, Red and Green. Smaller Yellow-Golden Squares and smaller Purple glitters that make up "the base". I flippin love the "randomness" of this polish and how every nail looks entirely different. I just kinda dabbed on this polish to achieve an effect I liked.

Here is a neat-o macro. I'm getting better at these :D!
Doesn't Random Dancing make you wanna do some random dancing of your own? I did!
