All Mixed Up: Party In A Bottle for We All Glow!

Available from 12/9 through 12/30 is Party in a Bottle from All Mixed Up, an indie nail polish brand. They've created this polish as a limited edition group custom for the We All Glow! facebook group.

The polish is a deep blue jelly base packed with holo sparkle and neon dot glitters. The polish glows bright blue in the dark and the glittter reacts under blue light for a flourescent glow! Shown in three coats with Smooth Moves (glitter smoothing topcoat) and a quick dry topcoat. The formula was great, no issues to report.

Snow Globe as a Topper!

You may recall my earlier review of Kathleen & Co.'s December 2nd Polish Pick Up. I decided to try it out as a topper over various cream colors and I am loving it this way too! From index to pinky over Kathleen & Co. creams: green (Fir), purple (Eggplant), blue (Deepest Blue), red (Winterberry). The plastic nail ring is two coats over the "natural" shade of plastic.

Kathleen & Co. File and Pusher

Debuting this Black Friday on the Kathleen & Co. webshop are their Crystal etched nail file and cuticle pusher. These are both chemically etched, so the surface will not wear away, they both come with a vinyl case, and best of all, they can be very easily sanitized!


I find that the file's grit is just right for both reducing the length of natural nails and for shaping them. If you look back at my review for the upcoming Polish Pickup, you can compare to the photo below to see the amount of length I took off with this file. It was easy to do and didn't take long. Plus the grit is fine enough that I don't have to bother with filing in one direction. The file will seal the nail nicely so there's no need to go over the free edge with a buffing file afterward. And the handle is purple, who doesn't love purple?

I also did my cuticle clean up with the new etched cuticle pusher from Kathleen & Co. It makes super quick work of it and no cuticle remover liquid is needed. I love the sharp point to get really close to the proximal nail fold to remove the tiny bits that like to cling there. If you're unfamilar with the difference between the proximal nail fold and cuticle, have a quick review of my "What is cuticle?" article, it may not be what you think! The tool is super fast and accurate with no mess or fuss. I love the ease of use and really, you can use it anywhere, like while waiting in the car for Starbucks drive through! If you haven't tried a tool like this, it is worth getting. Just be sure to be gentle to keep your proximal nail folds happy!
