Hello friends! Happy Tuesday!
I'm really excited about the polishes that I have for you tonight. When I found Sincerely Polish on Instagram one of the first things I noticed was that she had some polishes based on one of my favorite book series, The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. Some of you may have seen the movie City of Bones that just came out, it is based on the first book. It was pretty good, but the books are so much better. (Yes that's always the truth.)
So when Karen sent me a couple of these polishes to review I squealed. Not just because of the books they're based on but they are super fun.
First up is Shadow Huntress.
Here is the description from Karen's site: Inspired by the Best Selling book by Cassandra Clare, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Shadowhuntress is a gray jelly polish that represents the female race of human-angel hybrids who walk among us, our invisible protectors. It's filled with black hexes, squares and micro glitters, holographic silver hexes, silver bars, micro silver glitters, black hearts and black holographic hearts. This is the perfect gift for any TMI fans. Mundanes just wouldn't get it.
That sums it up perfectly. For this mani I applied 3 thin coats of Shadow Huntress and topped it with 1 coat of Glossy Glam. I sound like a broken record, but you know how I love these jelly polishes that are opaque enough to build up but jelly enough to see the layers of squish. This one makes me want to reread the series. The glitters distribute really well on this one, no need for fishing or placement. Although I did do some arranging of the hearts, I can't help myself.
Next is Green House:
Again I'm just going to share Karen's description because it is perfect. Green House, is inspired by the moment when Jace takes Clary to the Green House in the Institute for her Birthday. Green House is a deep green jelly filled with micro green and silver glitters, holographic purple hexes, holographic pink butterflies, celery green hexes, and red heart glitters.
This scene was so much better in the book than in the movie, and that is where Karen's inspiration was pulled from. For this mani I applied 3 thin coats of Green House and topped it with 1 coat of Glossy Glam. The glitter disperses well and there was very little placement needed. I can't hep but fish out the shapes and put them where I want them.
Both of these polishes are available now on the Sincerely Polish website. Today is Karen's one month anniversary sale, so she's got a 30% off coupon code right now. Head over to her Instagram for more details! Go get some of her polish, you won't be sorry!
