Before & After: I Want Candy!

(Press Sample)

Hello there!

One of the cool things about working with independent polish makers is that every once in a while I get to test out a prototype. It makes me feel like I'm all important and have like research and development stuff going on! And yes, today is one of those days. I got to try out this cool prototype from InDecisive Nail Lacquer, it's Jawbreaker, and it's a sweet and sour melange of neon glitters in a milky base:

That is pretty and fun and it makes me think of sweet tarts and the everlasting gobstoppers. Ooh, and that candy that came in the pouches, with a white stick that you would lick and then stick into the different powders and then lick it again and it would last forever until you got sick or lost all the feeling in your tongue? What was that called??? Anyway...all the fun and none of the calories or sugar, lol. :)

To decorate it, I first pulled out Barielle Barefoot In Bermuda and Sally Hansen Lightning to stamp with, and chose two patterns from MoYou London Fairytale Collection plate 03. However, the pink was a little too dark for the base polish, and the swirly design I chose competed too much with the pretty base (I do like the yellow nails, however):

So I wiped off the stamping with a little acetone, and put on another coat of Jawbreaker because the acetone took off a little to much polish. Then I used the circle pattern from the same plate, but stamped instead with Sally Hansen Blue-Away, and then drew coordinating dot patterns with Sally Hansen Lightning and Lacey Lilac:

I Like the second one a lot better--much more subtle and balanced. What do you think?

Hope you're having a great weekend,

  2. I think the polish is cute...but I'm on the fence about buying it myself. Are the glitter colors bright neon or are they more primary colors as they appears here in the pics?

    1. The glitter is brighter than shown in the photos, it's actually very neon. It's the same glitter as I used in my Speckled Neons polishes (plus neon orange). Hope that helps!
