NailVenturous - Granite swatch

Monday, August 20, 2012

Just a quick swatch for you. Today I have a special Indie polish for you. Granite by NailVenturous. The wonderful lady behind the wonderful polishes at NailVenturous is not producing them anymore. So if you have one -hang on to it; and if you have a chance to grab one - grab it.

Granite is full of tiny dots of black glitter with larger white and copper glitters in a milky white base. I really like the look of the polish. The name "granite" fits it well. Although the copper glitter didn't lay as flat as the glitter in "Robin Laid an Egg."

NailVenturous - Robin Laid an Egg

He rocks in the tree tops all day long
Hoppin' and a-boppin' and singing his song
All the little birdies on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet tweet tweet

Rockin' robin, tweet tweet tweet

Rockin' robin' tweet tweetly-tweet
Blow rockin' robin
'Cause we're really gonna rock tonight

Sorry... That song has been stuck in my head since last night when I tried this amazing rockin' polish by NailVenturous - Robin Laid an Egg.

Multi color and size glitter is predominant in a white base of polish. The glitter applied evenly and laid flat. I am not normally a glitter type of gal. I love micro glitter but the larger glitters usually don't appeal to me. But this one is perfect. The glitter isn't overwhelming and it reminds me of Easter candy.

These swatches are two coats.

Humbled by Humble Bee

A very dear friend sent me a polish called "Humble Bee" by Nailventurous. I hadn't used any polish from Nailventurous before so I asked Lisa at Cosmetic Sanctuary if I should use a base color and she replied that she did. (I know this doesn't seem important now; but trust me it will be funny later.)  So we decided to do a shared post to talk about this eye catching polish.

I started with a base coat of Deborah Lippmann "Almost Paradise." I wanted a base color that wouldn't take away from the wonderful yellow glitter flecks in Humble Bees. Almost Paradise is a creamy, pale yellow with a slight tint of green.

Then I applied Humble Bee. It applied flawlessly. I didn't have to arrange the larger glitter pieces. They spread evenly and smoothly. This polish has tiny flecks of black and yellow with larger pieces of black. The brush was easy to work with too.

As I was finishing my mani Lisa sent a message that said "OMG, I used Deborah Lippmanns 'Almost Paradise' for a base color."

Let me tell you. I about fell off my chair. What are the odds that we would pick the same base color out of all the polishes we own? Great minds think alike. At the bottom of this blog post you will see the link to Cosmetic Sanctuary's Humble Bee manicure. Make sure to check it out and browse the rest of her blog. Lisa always has wonderful informative posts.

I know I have a fishing lure that looks a lot like this.

I used Seche Vite Fast Dry top coat to protect my buzzing manicure. One amazing thing about this polish is that it doesn't dry gritty so one coat of Seche Vite did the job.

In my humble opinion "Humble Bees" will be the buzz of your collection.
