Model City Polish Geminids

Today on my blog we have an amazing blue jelly-the bluest of all blues, the jelliest of all jellies! It’s Model City Polish Geminids, which is described as a rich blue jelly with tiny blue and silver holographic glitter in tiny hexes and micro bars. I love the micro bars! In a jelly like this they’re really something special. 

(The Geminids meteor shower is every December and is spectacular, btw!)

 

This shows two coats of Geminids with a coat of Gelous and Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That.

Deeeeeeelish! Seriously. I may need a backup bottle.

A little wintery, though, isn’t it? So maybe I should move on to a nice springtime polish. 😉 I just so happen to have a few of those on hand…

Stay tuned for two new MCP spring colors next time!

Digital Nails Highlander

Today is the last of my new Digital Nails posts for a short while! Sad day, I know. But I have a few more for later on down the line. 

This is Digital Nails Highlander, inspired by Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series. It’s a golden copper holographic jelly, created with a line from the books in mind: “looks like the light reflecting off of gold and copper coins.”  I can dig it! The formula was excellent, and I chose to use three coats and a coat of ANGTFT quick-dry topcoat.

On to the photos! These are all taken in bright indoor lighting.

This polish is sheer, so even at three coats it’s got just a hint of VNL goin’ on, but honestly it isn’t so bad that it bothers me. This polish is extremely office-friendly, and I’ll be picking up a full size as soon as I have money for it. (Looks like that might be a while, though, sadly! Summer is coming, and I need a big, BIG tent!) 

You can buy Highlander at Digital Nails’ etsy store for $13 USD. If you’d like to keep up with their shop announcements and new polish colors, collections, etc., go look her up on Facebook-she has two new collections coming out soon! I’m especially excited about her spring one, which is a little different from the normal “all pastels” collections that tend to come out this time of year. 🙂

See you all next time!

Emily de Molly Oceanic Forces

Hello all!

Today I have a more recent acquisition to show you guys, though it’s a polish that’s been out for a while: Emily de Molly’s Oceanic Forces! This is one out of a trio of polishes, the other two being Dark Forces and Cosmic Forces.

Oceanic Forces has a dark teal jelly base with various size holographic glitters all the way up to the amazing large holographic dots. The formula is decent and was not difficult to work with-the hardest part about applying this polish was getting the holo dots placed just so.

As you all may remember from when I reviewed a-England Saint George, my favorite mug in the universe is teal, and I love using it as a prop in teal polish photos!

Sorry about the low lighting in these pics-this is a combination of as bright as I could get our living room lights to go and the sun from this time of the year.

These pics were taken the day after I did this manicure, and I have one coat of a-England base coat, three coats of Oceanic Forces, a coat of Gelous and a coat of Poshe topcoats.

I managed to score all three of this trio together on a blog sale so I’ll be reviewing the other two sooner or later! You can pick up Oceanic Forces and its mates on Etsy if you’re in Australia. If you’re in the US, you can try Llarowe, MeiMei’s Signatures, or Nail Polish Canada.  For now, keep on keepin’ on ladies and gents-

All love, Allie.
