Untried Indies – Days 5, 6, 7 & 8

Wow!  Do I have some catching up to do! Time really gets away from me sometimes. I’m still on top of doing at least one untried indie per day, sometimes more!  Yay!  Let’s see how long this lasts.  Haha! I’ve been posting on Instagram but I want to also post these here so I can get into a little bit more detail.

So for Day 5, I have another KB Shimmer.  I was so in love with Hex Appeal that I had to try my other KB Shimmer right away!  This is called Watercolor.  OMG!  In the bottle this just looks “pretty” to me.  Once I slapped this on my nails, it was love at first sight! OMG again!  Haha!  It has the most beautiful bright blue crelly base.  So, so pretty!  It’s packed with two sizes

Untried Indies – Day 4

Okay. I’m a bit behind. Better late than never, right? I’ve been posting on Instagram so that’s got to count for something!

So for Day 4 I used KB Shimmer’s Hex Appeal. Again, in love with this polish! It’s a royal blue jelly base with all kinds of glitter goodness!! The formula was great. I used two easy coats and it was an instant jelly sammie!! No problems maneuvering glitter or having to fish! I’m loving KB Shimmer!

This polish can be purchased from www.kbshimmer.com. Check it out!

Indie Untrieds – Day 3

Day 3. The hardest part about this challenge is picking which polish to use! Haha! They are all so pretty! Today I have a Lovely Lacquer polish by Lauren. This is from her Resolution Collection for the New Year and it’s called Put the Cupcake Down. Love it!!! Haha!

This polish has a light purple milky base and it’s packed with glitter. This could have definitely been a one coater but I wanted the glitter to look dimensional so I added another super thin coat. The consistency is thick on the brush because of all the glitter, but once you brush it onto the nail it goes on smooth and clean. I needed no clean up and the base slides the glitter around perfectly. Great formula to work with!

This can be purchased from shoplovelylacquer.com

Indie Untrieds – Day 2

Day 2 of the untried indies is here and I have for you a Hare Polish. This is from the Finders Keepers Fall 2012 collection. I have the whole collection but I tried Golden Years first. It has a teal jelly base but it is PACKED with glitter so I used undies. American Apparel in Peacock worked perfectly. Then I just needed one coat (yes, ONE) of Golden Years!! So. Much. Glitter. It’s gorgeous!

I bought these from llarowe.com but Nikole also has an Etsy shop.

Indie Untrieds – Day 1

So a few of my Instagram ladies and I decided to challenge ourselves this new year. Some of us (wink, wink) are collecting polish faster than we are swatching or wearing them, especially with the amazing Indies that are coming out! So we decided to do a 31-day challenge, using a different Indie polish that we haven’t tried yet. Yes, and I do have enough. Ugh.
