Good morning everyone! Today I'm excited to bring a new to me indie polish brand to you. Actually Sincerely Polish is a new indie brand altogether, her shop just opened last Sunday, 11/10/13.
Last week Karen contacted me and asked if she could send me a few polishes to swatch for her. As soon as I saw her polishes I knew I wanted to try them out. I received my package from her on Monday and couldn't wait to try them out.
So, in the spirit of the season I started with the 2 polishes she sent me from her Thanksgiving collection. First of all I'd just like to say way to go Karen on not forgetting Thanksgiving! I feel like it's getting lost in the hustle and bustle of the Christmas shopping mania, and frankly it is getting really annoying.
But, I digress... on to the polish.
First up is The Good Stuffing.
For this mani I started with 2 coats of OPI My Vampire Is Buff and topped it with 3 coats of The Good Stuffing. Then I sealed it all in with 1 coat of Glossy Glam.
The Good Stuffing is a clear based glitter bomb made up of various colors and shapes of polish in all of your Thanksgiving colors. At first I thought it looked really Christmasy, in the bottle. But then I got it on my nail and realized that this baby SCREAMS Thanksgiving. You know those adorable turkey nails that are always going around this time of year? I'm thinking this would be a perfect pairing for those.
The formula on this polish is really good. I did have to dab in a few spots, but with a polish this loaded with glitter that is normal. It is very squishy, and you know how I love squishy. There is so much depth to it I swear it looks like I caught shadows of the glitter in some of my macros, don't you think? It's also really sparkly. I'm hoping to get a video of in the sun tomorrow to post to my Instagram to show this off.
Next up is Cranberrylicious.
This is 4 thin coats of Cranberrylicious with some placement of the large circles and 1 coat of Glossy Glam.
Cranberrylicious is a deep burgandy jelly base with red square glitters and red holographic circle glitters.
Ok confession time. (I seem to be doing this a lot lately) I'm not a huge fan of "jelly" polishes. You know, the ones that never really get fully opaque. I really can't stand seeing my nail line (the white part at the tip) so they just aren't usually my thing. But this one, oh my goodness. The squishiness! It's unbelievably gorgeous. Check out those macros... I couldn't stop staring at this one. I'm not even really all that sure how to describe it. I did have to fish some for those circles, but trust me that's a good thing with circles this size. You don't want them taking over your whole nail! Sometimes placement is a good thing, and this is one of those times. They never really lay quite right on my little nubs, but these are really pretty. It reminded me of those old fashioned glass paperweights that had designs floating in them. (I bet no one knows what I'm talking about there...)
Both of these polishes are for sale in Karen's shop here. In fact, if you get her entire Thanksgiving collection (these 2 plus 2 more) it is on sale right now at a lower price than buying the bottles individually. You should also be following her on Instagram for updates and lots of pretty pictures.
I loved both of these and can't wait to bring you the other 3 polishes that Karen sent!
I hope you all have a great day!
