Hello All! Have you missed me?? Last week really got away from me. It always seems to take me forever to get in the groove of being on Summer break. I went through a period of not wanting to do anything and then trying to get tons of stuff done. Add to that the burn out I have been feeling after every Digit-al Dozen week and I am worthless! Maybe that is a tad harsh but true. How about extremely lazy?!?! I also have this HUGE review pile that doesn't seem to be getting any smaller. I find it overwhelming sometimes. Yeah, I know stop whining and get to the nail polish!
At the beginning of the year I read a news article about a new and upcoming indie polish company. I was pretty interested and thought that I would have to check it out at some point. Flash forward a few months and I received an email from the lovely creator asking to swatch some of her collection. I love coincidences like this! I am extremely excited to share a small selection of her Summer Valley Girl inspired collection! Ooops, I guess it helps if I share the name! Here are some swatches of Pepper Pot Polish!
Valley Girl - gorgeous lavender shimmer with hints of pink. This color is awesome! I love the shade and the formula was fantastic. I applied two coats but it was almost opaque in one. This makes me wonder if it would be a good stamper. I'll have to test that out. You will want to watch your brushstrokes because it will look a little wonky if you just slap it on.
No Duh - yummy, light green holo-y - gold shimmer. Isn't this green awesome?? It is light and fresh, perfect for Summer! The formula was thinner than Valley Girl, but as you can see flawless in two. I just can't get over the freshness of this green. Love it!
Like, Whatever - beautiful yellow-y - gold, holo-y shimmer. I do realize that I am using a lot of nonsense wording for these descriptions. They are just the best words to describe them! LOL! This yellow screams 80s to me and I love it! It's bright and dirty at the same time. I kind of falls into the ugly polish color and you know how I feel about ugly colors. My favorites! This yellow applied perfectly in two coats, absolutely no streaking!
Totally Tubular - pink shimmer with matte neon squares and hexes. You can't have an 80s movie inspired collection without some neon! This glitter is awesome! I wanted to you see the formula on it's own. I applied two coat over bare nails.
As you can see, this glitter is more of a topper than stand alone polish. The application was good, but I did have to do some fishing for the larger blue glitter.
I decided to try it out over Like, Whatever. I applied one coat and dabbed the blue glitter. It looks pretty cool! I need to see what it would look like over white. I do have a neon theme coming up...
I absolutely LOVED all these lacquers! The formulas were amazing and the colors are gorgeous! I need to create some nail art with them, really show them off. I should have taken photos of the design I created for my sister. I did her nails on June 3 and she was still wearing Like, Whatever on Saturday. She did have some tip damage but the color was still going strong!
I high recommend adding a few of these shades to your collection. You know you are looking for a neon glitter for Summer! I can even save you some money! Use VALLEYGIRL for 20% off your order until June 30 or FREESHIP30 for free shipping on orders over $30 until August 31.
