cute packaging

First off, can we talk about the packaging? Super adorable, I kind of went she-hulk on the box and opened it upside down in my fervor to get to this polishes but the effect is not lost. Each bottle comes individually wrapped in this gorgeous textured brown paper and seal up with super cute tape. I need to find some way to repurpose this paper, because I foresee a lot more orders coming in soon! My order also came with a little travel size nail file and a magnet for me as-of-yet helmer, but that’s a different story. These are the minis in the 7 mL size and they retail for $6 each.

I’m going to start with “Gigglemug” today, this is a gorgeous soft teal shade with what I would define as a soft linear holographic glitter throughout. It also has a gold shimmer to it which has me completely sold on this one! This was one of my favorites, and this could be a convincing nice thick one coater. I went ahead and did two coats here.

Next up is “Gas Pipes” and I was very intrigued by this polish. It is a light sage/yellow/beige color with iridescent flakies running throughout as well as some glitter. This one was a little on the sheer side at 3 coats for opacity, and it does dry down slightly textured due to the flakies but I really was surprised how much I enjoy this one! I tried putting one coat over black but it was just a tiny bit too streaky for my taste but in typical flaky fashion Gas Pipes looks awesome with a matte topcoat!

“Tight as a Boiled Owl” is another instant favorite from this collection, I seriously cannot get over this combination! This is a dark, molten bronze base color with a ton of scattered holographic glitter running throughout. I feel like I’m channeling Fall with this color! It has an almost tiger’s eye flash in the light. Super pretty, easily a one coater and just a tad brushstrokey but completely worth it!

Next up is “Dash My Wig” and dare I say this is another absolute winner! This is a dark, slate grey with a soft linear holographic glitter paired up with I believe tiny purple flakes? I could be off about the color but this polish has a little something special in it. Pretty in the shade but it really comes to life in direct lighting, this is shown as two easy coats.

Next up is the rosy sort of pink toned polish of the collection, this is “Cupid’s Kettle Drum.” This is another soft linear holographic polish with a super easy formula. I feel like this color could be universally flattering! Shown here with 2 easy coats.

Lastly today I have “Bit o’ Jam” this is a soft linear holographic glitter polish in a purple leaning a little blue base color with a slight purple shimmer. Great formula, you can probably get away with one thicker coat but I’ve done 2 coats here.
