Ooh an exciting post today for those of you who love custom indie polishes! There's no nail art, but this is beautiful on its own. Nail art to come soon though!
Now you've probably noticed that I don't blog about indie polishes. This isn't because I don't like them, I absolutely love seeing them but being from the UK there aren't many around and they end up being really expensive if you try to order from abroad. So when Charlie from Pocket Money Polishes mentioned she was creating her own UK polishes I was soo excited!! P.M.Ps first collection called glitter babies consists of 4 really cute glitter toppers inspired by old school songs. They are all 3-free, cruelty free, and made individually to order!
Charlie allowed me to order before the official release (Monday 10th June) and I have never had a polish before release before so I jumped at the chance :D I went for the most girly one in the collection, My Girl. From far away it might not look that special, but I could see she was a beauty! Take a look at the macro bottle shot! wow! full of pink and silver/lilac hex glitters with tiny hologrphic sparkle mixed in.
Choosing the base colour was the difficult part. I tested it out on a few colours and it looked good over most of them! (see photos below). In the end I decided to go for Nails Inc Cambridge because from the test it looked so elegant! So here it is, two coats of nails inc cambridge with one thick coat of P.N.P My Girl! Isn't it beautiful! It looks like a sequin effect! It applied brilliantly with lots of glitter! I rarely wear glitters so if I can apply it, anyone can! A thick coat seems to give a nicer effect than two thin coats. Dry time was fine, just like a normal polish but I topped it off with a coat of Orly Sec N Dry.
What do you think of My Girl? Check out the other polishes on P.M.P's Facebook Page. These cost £4 for a 5ml bottle - which I'd say is the only down size, I'd rather buy a bigger bottle. But if you take into account a Nails Inc 4ml mini is around £5 - I'd much rather pay money for a limited edition custom one than a bulk made one ;) They are available only to people in the UK for the moment.
