Hi there, my darlings! Now, it's been quite awhile since I've shared something from NailNation 3000, now hasn't it?! Now, trust me, it's not because of lack of love on either of our parts! Maria and I adore each other and her brand is one of my first true indie polish loves! Let's just chalk it up to a couple of missed connections and leave it at that! But, I'm happy to say that we're getting back on track and I have the first, of what I hope will be many, post with a few shades from Maria that I feel are just perfect for Spring! Let's take a look!
Creme de Bleau is a bright aqua blue creme. Smooth, easy formula and application--the swatches below show just 2 thin coats, topped with 1 thin coat of of Glisten & Glow's HK Girl topcoat. Such a gorgeous, happy shade of blue!
First Kiss is described as "a soft sweet light petal pink pearl with a soft holo." These kind of frosty, metallic pearlescent shades can be a pain to work with but this one applied beautifully! A tad streaky on the first coat but levels out quite nicely by the second---the swatches below show just 3 thin coats, topped with 1 thin coat of of Glisten & Glow's HK Girl topcoat to finish the look. A lovely shade of delicate pink!
Holo Dreams is described as "a quadruple MEGA holo steel silver holo that has a BIG holo pop on its own." I love Maria's holos and mega holos--they always apply like a dream. Although fully opaque in 2 coats, I added a third for extra sparkle--the swatches below show just 3 thin coats by itself. Seriously, just LOOK at that holo!
One Last Dance is described as "a strong vibrant soft pink metallic holo with pale pink micro glitters and rich metallic purple glitters pack in for a beautiful effect." Despite being packed with little glitters, application was a breeze---the swatches below show just 3 thin coats, topped with 1 thin coat of of Glisten & Glow's HK Girl topcoat to finish the look. I'm usually a purist when it comes to holos but I made an immediate exception for this baby! Doesn't this just look like orchids in a polish?! So gorgeous!
Rags to Riches is described as an "kelly emerald green holo." Another perfect holo in formula and application---the swatches below show just 3 thin coats by itself. Totally the perfect emerald green!
Walkers, Reamers, Biters, OH MY! is described as "a bright cherry red with a jellie base and a medium holo fame and flecks of golden and pink micas." Smooth, easy formula and application--this polish is so easy to work with! Although fully opaque in 2 coats, I added one more for extra oomph--the swatches below show just 3 thin coats, topped with 1 thin coat of of Glisten & Glow's HK Girl topcoat to finish the look. I'm a sucker for reds and this is a perfect red!
