My NOTDs of the Week

This week I am absolutely exited about the polishes that I wore:

Let's begin with Contrary Polish Frozen. I LOVE this delicate white. I lately really enjoy wearing white polishes - if you would have asked me some months ago I would have stated with infinite persuasion that I cannot wear white polish, a perfect example what this addiction can do to you - LOL!

I applied three thin coats of Contrary Polish Frozen carefully over Essence XXL Nail Thickener and used NailNation 3000 45 seconds Top Coat.

Jindie Nails became one of my favorite Indie Brands as of late - might be linked to their awesome range of milky white based glitters. Their formula is awesome, plenty of glitter, excellent consistency. To make the long story short, this is Jindie Nails Tried and True

I have read that the base color is not really strongly pigmented, so I started with one coat of Ozotic Mr Big White before applying two thin coats of Jindie Nails Tried and True. I used Essence XXL Nail Thickener as Base Coat, Butter London Hardwear Top Coat.

When posting Pretty & Polished Jawbreaker recently, I did some research where it still would be available and found their own website and best of it - they ship internationally. I got myself two of their polishes - this is Aurora.

You are looking for the glitter on my nails? Me too ;-)!!! However this is entirely my failing as I should have put the bottle upside down well ahead of application :-S!!! I am utterly pleased by the formula of Aurora and the blue is incredibly saturated and vivid - totally unique in my stash!!!  I applied three thin coats of Pretty & Polished Aurora over Essence XXL Nail Thickener. I used Butter London Hardwear as Top Coat. Bonus: no staining upon removal.

My usual Sunday question: any favorites?

I ordered Contrary Polish Frozen and Jindie Nails Tried and True with Llarowe. I ordered Pretty & Polished with their own website

I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
