Early this year a couple of polish thoughts swirled through my brain: my non-experimental gravitation towards only a few brands, the purchases of too many nearly identical shades and finishes and the difficulty to snag polishes during launch-frenzy. The subscription to A Box Indied by Llarowe was the solution to all of the above. I now get a variety of brands in all colors and finishes at the relaxed pace of a subscription. Not to mention the goodies for nail care that are flying my way in the one or the other box. So far all of them are divine and deserve a post of their own in the not too distant future.
But I get lost in my excitement over those boxes here - back to business at hand: SKITTELETTE TIME! A perfect solution to use more than one of my untrieds - today I have two beauties from Jindie Nails, both came in A Box Indied though not with the same. Still the two make a perfect pair: Jindie Nails Blue & Green's Love Child - a bright blue-green (read teal) holo and Kangaroo, Take Me Away a signature white glitter jelly holding round and hex glitter in aqua, green, light green, gold, brown and dark turquoise in a set of sizes.
Pinkie and middle: one coat of Jindie Nails Kangaroo, Take Me Away over two coats of Colors by Llarowe Coconut (an off-white jelly)
Ring: one coat of Picture Polish Marine stamped with Rica white stamping polish, pattern from MoYou Pro Collection 03
Index and thumb: two coats of Jindie Nails Blue & Green's Love Child
A couple of words on Jindie Nails Kangaroo, Take Me Away: a signature Jindie Nails polish, this beauty is sheer and would need three coats to provide a decent opacity. Adding the amount of glitter mixed in here you deal with quite a thick layer of polish with a rather uneven surface. I found layering it over a plain off-white jelly was the perfect solution. What you see in the pictures above is one (ONE) coat without fishing, poking and what have you to get glitter out of the bottle.
And some more on Jindie Nails Blue & Green's Love Child: rich and creamy this baby has a velvet character in application and probably opaque at one coat. I went for two anyhow and I have to report, that waiting a couple of minutes in between applying wouldn't have hurt, it was borderline dragging and only a featherlight hand prevented me from starting from scratch.
Last but not least a picture from the stamping image I used on my ring finger:
Both Jindie Nails polishes came in Llarowe's A Box Indied. I order MoYou stamping plates either from their own website or with Pshiiit Boutique. Rica Stamping Polish is relatively new to Harlow & Co and getting a white and a black bottle was one of my smarter buys. Picture Polish Marine is an old pal in my stash and I frankly cannot remember where I got it from but the sources are plentiful: their own website, Llarowe, Harlow & Co, Pshiiit Boutique, Overall Beauty to name a few.
And lastly Nell ready to explore his little kingdom.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for stopping by!
