while he's distracted by OUTSIDE I can pretty much pile bottles of nail polish on and around Remy and he doesn't even care
First let's talk about Frozen Over. It's a sheer, very light blue base with pink and maybe gold (?) shimmer throughout. For reference, here is my post on Sinful Colors Cinderella from 2012, which I described as "a pale blue with a drop or two of gray added to it that gives it a soft feel. It also has tiny gold and pink shimmer, which is just incredible." 2012 Stephanie was way more impressed with Cinderella than 2014 Stephanie is with Frozen Over (which is very similar) #polishjaded. But anyway, for this I used three coats of the Maybelline (could have used a fourth), and then did a sort of dot gradient using OPI Alpine Snow and China Glaze Passion For Petals (which is actually a pink, but looks sort of orange here). It was very easy, and I love the results.
Then I ended up dropping by Walgreens that same day and I found Wet n Wild Shine's new matte top coat. Yay! I have been wanting a matte top coat because my Essie Matte About You DRIED THE HELL OUT. Seriously, it is completely unusable, and I don't know how it happened. The bottle was closed tightly, etc. Anyway, this top coat, like other Wet n Wild Shine polishes, was only 99 cents. And as you can see from the photographs, it clearly does a good job mattifying. It gets a ringing endorsement from me. And I actually like this manicure better matte.
So anyway, there you have it. I'm getting a little bored with recent polish releases. Nothing is really speaking to me. Even polishes that I bought from, say, 2013 fall collections, aren't even interesting enough to me right now to use them. They're all lined up in my bathroom waiting to be used, but I'm all "meh." What have you guys been loving right now? Do you have any recommendations? If so, I'd love to read about them in the comments. Thanks for stopping by!
