Pretty & Polished is ready for sunny spring weather!
Hello hello! Don't worry, I didn't drop the polishes... although it looks like I did, doesn't it? I got a lot of questions about this when I posted a preview on Instagram today and I can't reveal my super secret blogger secrets, but I can tell you that it wasn't Photoshopped. I don't roll that way XD (plus, I'm just super crappy at Photoshop)
But aaaanyway... I have two Pretty & Polished beauties to show you today! They're called My Friend Dahlia and Disguise The Limit and they are for the Spring FX collection that will be released on March 1st. Click to see them!
My Friend Dahlia
OMG I love this polish! I think I am in actual love with it...
My Friend Dahlia is a gorgeous jelly that surprised me, because I had no idea it was a thermal! I found that out while I was swatching it, I applied the first coat and it turned pink on my nail bed, while the tip stayed purple. Such an awesome surprise!
When it heats up, it becomes a bright magenta which is just my favorite color ever! I've always had a thing for magenta. I always wanted pink shoes but somehow they were never available when I was little. So now I'm sporting black Nikes with a pink accent and bright pink shoe laces. Yes, I'm one of those girls :-p
I applied three coats of this jelly to get this opaque look. No top coat!
My Friend Dahlia was that she stayed pretty matte. I really like this effect so I didn't feel like adding a top coat. I usually do add a quick drying top coat to speed up the hardening of the polish. Because of my excitement of discovering the thermal effect, I started pretty much glopping the polish on, not taking the time to wait for my coats to dry. So I thought I would need a quick drying top coat for sure but to my surprise, it dried on its own faster than you can say 'supercallifragilisticexpialidocious'!
Anyway, this is a gorgeous color, which makes it a perfect match with the warm magenta state of the polish. You can't wear a thermal polish when you don't like on of the color states. You'll be walking around with a poop color half of the time!
My Friend Dahlia. I think it looks kinda naked without the purple tips. I just got so used to looking at them throughout the day!
Disguise The Limit
Another polish in the Spring FX collection is Disguise The Limit and this is an interesting blue shimmer with strong holo sparkles. I'm not sure if the shimmer is really my style, but I can't deny the fact that this is a beautiful polish that is the color of the cloudless spring sky.
Disguise The Limit to reach opacity. It's really an easy polish to apply, no troubles and it dried quickly. I did apply a top coat this time, because it could use the little boost in shine.
My Friend Dahlia!
