I've got the blues - Dandy Nails

Saturday, August 11, 2012

Nail mail came today. I admit it. Both polishes were blue. I have a thing with blue - dark blue, light blue, sky blue, navy blue, cobalt blue... need I go on?

So when I saw these polishes from DandyNails I couldn't resist.

The formula is awesome. Great application - smooth and wonderful coverage in two coats for Eager Eyes and three coats for Parallel Universe.

Eager Eyes has tons of sparkle and shine. It was hard to capture in the photos. A light, yet bright blue. This quickly moved up on my favorites list.

Parallel Universe is a gorgeous azure blue with a slight shift to purple. But I couldn't catch the duochrome effect in the photo. Wonderful shimmer and shine to this polish.

Now I think I am off to find more blue polishes. One can never have enough blues...

I have swatches of DandyNails Bathed in Light, Look Around and You Set My Soul Alight here.

Bottom line: An indie polish that is classy, elegant and fashionable. I am going to have to check out some more of her polishes! Dandy Nails can be purchased for $8 on her Etsy shop when available.

Dandy Nails swatches and review

Saturday, July 14, 2012

I recently ordered from Dandy Nails. I love indie polishes and have some favorite Etsy stores to haunt. Dandy Nails is one of them. I purchased Bathed in Light, Look Around and You Set My Soul Alight. I am not a big glitter kind of gal so these seemed perfect. Don't get me wrong. I love glitter - it's gorgeous. But I love the microglitters - the larger glitters just aren't for me.

These three polishes are amazing - full of glittery goodness. The application was great. I only used two coats on each. Look Around and You Set My Soul Alight definitely needed a top coat to bring out the shine. But that wasn't a problem for me. I always use a top coat.

Let's move on to the swatches.

This is my favorite of the three and it has secured a place on my list of all-time favorites.

Bathed in Light is a gorgeous duo-chrome with holographic prisms. All the best of both worlds. The color shifts from a gorgeous gray to a shimmery pink. The holographic particles reflect the colors of the rainbow. A must have polish for your collection.

Look around is a gorgeous sea foam green with micro holographic glitter. A classy and fashionable polish. The color is mesmerizing. The name is a little off though. It's impossible to "look around" with this polish on 'cause I just want to keep staring at my nails.   :)

You Set My Soul Alight is a classic black with tons of micro holographic glitter throughout. Hard to capture on camera. I also notice I didn't clean up well enough after this manicure. But that doesn't mean you can't see all the fun glittery goodness.
