Welcome to my first blogging experience, I honestly never would have thought I would create a blog. After beginning my nail polish love affair(just a few short months ago) I realized that very few people in my real every day life seemed to care about which cuticle oils I thought moisturized wonderfully, or which brands of nail polish had the best formula, and I got complete blank stares when trying my best to get others excited about all the wonderful indie polishes I was trying...they just didn't understand! Cue sad face
I am going to start off this first post with a little FAQ, so you can get to know me a little better
My name is Miranda, I am 24 years old, I live where the wind comes sweepin' down the plainnnnnnnnnnssssss(no never heard it? you should go listen to it) O.K.L.A.H.O.M.A! I have two wonderful, naughty, crazy, but mainly good boys who are 6 and 2. I am married to my highschool sweetheart who fully(well most of the time) supports me in my nail polish addiction, I do occasionally still have to hide my nail mail from him, but only SOMETIMES! I'm a full time stay at home mommy, along with part time student, and a hairstylist on the weekends! I enjoy all things crafty related and love reading! My favorite Indie polishes of the moment are Femme Fatale, Bear Pawlish, ILNP, My Darling Curios, and Starrily, and I will now share some swatches of my favorites by them, because who doesn't love pictures?!
First up we have Lynnb designs "Our little Infinity" formula is amazing self levels not streaky and was a 2 coater. This is like a universe in a bottle its just wonderful.
Bear Pawlish is a hot commondity, and for good reason. The maker, Tennessee, sure knows how to make polishes. My favorite by her right now is "Peek-a-boo" a super hot pink(leans almost neon) linear holographic polish, also seems to have an orangey flash to it. I was so impressed with this polish it applied like butter, easy and silky(get your mind out of the gutter!) Also only 2 glorious coats.
ILNP( I love Nail Polish) is a Las Vegas based company and I have been impressed with every collection she has released. The packaging is elegant, polishes are beautiful, and the formulas are fantastic. What more can you want? my favorite right now is "Paige" a beautiful raspberry pink ultra holographic linear (with also some scattered holo)polish.
Next up is Starrily, and this brand sure lives up to its name, all of her polishes are "stars" they shimmer, Glitter and shine. It's really hard to pick a favorite but "Ultima" stole my heart it's a silver holographic glitter packed polish that packs a serious punch! I used 3 coats for this swatch but you could probably get away with 2 thicker coats, or layered over another silver polish.
Last but not least is My Darling Curios she made the list because she has superb shipping time, amazing prices, wonderful packaging, and has really impressed me with polishes I have ordered from her. My favorite right now is called "Guilded" a beautiful light blue filled with micro fine holographic glitter. It's a 3 coater, but was worth every coat because it applied like a dream. And as a bonus you get to see my second favorite by her which is on my middle finger, its called "Peacock Crossing" a squishy teal jelly crème.
Phew...Congrats to all who made it to this point so that's it for todays post! Please share with me some of your favorite Indies of the moment! I would love to know, and thanks for reading
