Atomic Polish & Nailart

I was given the opportunity to review a new to me brand that just launched on February 28. All the colors you see here and more are available at the Atomic Polish shop.

Pd (Palladium)
a teal creme nail polish.

Not just any teal cream though, this one is buttery and easy to apply. 2 coats shown with topcoat.

Stamped with AU (Gold)

AU (Gold)
a clear base filled with metallic gold micro flakes.

What a vibrant and sparkly polish, it stamps really well too. Shown is one coat polished and the second coat sponged on to avoid a stroked finish.

Palladium, Carbon, and Silver watermarbled over Silver. The spread is small for the two creams, but they still work well for this!

a true red creme nail polish.

Shown is two coats with topcoat - definitely a true red, formula a dream to apply.

Overall, I'm very pleased with the product. It was well packaged for shipping and arrived fairly quick after our communication. I noticed the shop is having a 10% off sale when I visited today.
Will you be trying Atomic soon?

Ghost Train
a forest green jelly base full of colorful flakies and a pink to gold magnetic effect.
I've shown it below in two coats, both magnetized and not. It is crazy how different this polish looks, I did a double take and wondered if I had labeled my images wrong! But nope, this is just one polish.

Not magnetized is first, look at that green shift!

Magnetized with a Masura bar magnet. The trick to getting a tight line is to magnetize as soon as the polish is applied to each nail. It takes a little more time to do them one by one like that, but so worth it! I can't get over how duochromey it looks!

Day Tripper
a periwinkle holographic with bright blue to green shifting shimmer, a mix of holographic glitters and shimmers, and iridescent flakies.
My favorite of the trio. It shifts so much that it keeps you guessing what color it actually is! Shown in two coats below.

1850 Artisan They All Become Blueberries
inspired by Violet's demise by bubblegum in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. This is a light blue in warmest state, medium blue in the cool state, and purple in the cold state. This beauty is highlighted with a blue to purple multichrome flash, holographic microflakes, and a sprinkling of red/green shifting aurora.
130 bottle cap

This shift from the shimmer causes the purple shade to have a sort of magenta flash, truly beautiful.

Lake House Soapery is located on Buckeye Lake in Thornville, Ohio. Their handmade soaps take inspiration from life around the lake. Debbie brings the theme, Isn't That Refreshing, to HHC as the very first soaper to join HHC.

19 Crimes Bar Soap
The soap contains skin loving ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Silk Fibers, Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Palm Oil, Activated Charcoal & Wine. Tops of the soaps are sprinkled with: Skin safe glitter and Black Himalayan Sea Salts
Scented with Merlot fragrance.
13 bar cap

The packaging is so cute! The soap rests inside a kraftboard box, tied with a black satin ribbon and then placed in a draw string loot bag!
It's a generously sized bar with a beautiful drop swirl design. The bar is smooth to the touch and has an almost buttery feel. Lathers nicely when used and smells crisp and like a fresh/clean, bright fruit. I was surprised by the scent, and enjoyed it thoroughly in this morning's shower. If you love cold processed handmade bar soap, grab this treat while you can. Super limited.

I may have needed to drink uncork the wine to see which crime was on the cork! Mine had #13 Assaulting, cutting or burning clothes.

Lollipop Posse Lacquer Daughter of a Knife-Maker
a black crelly base filled with pink/red Aurora shimmer, scattered holographic pigment, holographic microflakes, blue fantasy flakes, and color-shifting iridescent flakes inspired by The Magicians.
No Cap

The shade leans more of a gunmetal or soft black on me and is packed with a punch of sparkle!

Mckfresh Nail Attire Instinct
a thermal inspired by team Instinct from Pokemon Go. Bright buttery yellow which has a slow transition to black and is packed full of gold, black and iridescent glitters & flakies. Remaining yellow most of the time, this will become black in colder temperatures.
40 bottle cap

On me, the warm shade is near chartreuse and the cold shade is more of a dark forest green. Quite a unique thermal color range!

Under A Hula Moon Don't Stop Me Now
lemon, satsuma, yuzu, and sugary musk blended with ocean and marine notes to mellow it all out.

Bright and fresh, this fruity wax melt will fill your home with cheer! Very strongly scented, I think the gals must have been joking when they called this mellow. :)
