Polish Addict

Laura from Polish Addict sent four polishes to me and even though she doesn't really do collections/sets, I noticed a theme among the polish she sent to me.
Summer! Surely everyone has at some point during a summer hit the beach, the pool, worn shades or lipstick or attended/had a wedding?
If you haven't, today's your day! We're going to do it all!
(shop descriptions in italics throughout this entry)

Let's start at the pool, shall we? Ah the crystal blue sparkling water, smell of chlorine, water splashing, diving board bouncing, slide..um sliding and kids sounding off with joy!
Pool Party is just that, a whole party in a bottle for your nails! Super sparkly holo goodness! I wore one coat over Sinful Colors Mint Apple for this look.
Pool Party is a glitter topper that has holo glitters in magenta, red, green, blue, teal, charcoal, lime green, silver and black

Rather have sand and surf? Ok! Beach Bound, we are! Coconut wafting through the air from the suntan lotion, teeny bikinis and big beach balls, sandcastles, colorful towels and the crash of the waves! We've arrived! I wore one coat over Lacquer Lust S-mauve-mente.
Beach Bound is a glitter topper with a mix of glitters in a variety of shapes and sizes. All kinds of "beach bound" colors you see at the beach!!

And now we'll gather 'round the beach for a White White Wedding, yes? Who's getting married!? I don't know, but I LOVE the colors they chose! I wore one coat over (index to pinky) China Glaze Pink Voltage, Nina Grin and Berry It, Sinful Colors Most Sinful, and Wet N Wild Glowstick.
White White Wedding is a mix of matte white glitter, mix of matte frost white glitter, micro holo silver glitter and micro rainbow iridescent glitter

And oh yes, we cannot forget our Lipstick & Shades for the drive home in the convertible 'vette! (a gal can dream right?!) This one is my very favorite of the four she sent, so I took extra photos of it! And a bonus macro shot! Loving those micro bar glitters in there! I wore one coat over Zoya Blu.
Lipstick & Shades is a glitter topper with matte white, black and gray glitters in a variety of shapes and sizes.

All the bottles she sent to me were jam packed with glitter and only needed one coat. All of them were easy to apply but since I wanted a few more of the big glitters than I was getting; I'd scoop the brush on the bottle neck to catch some. They were getting on the brush when I dipped it, but sometimes would slide off. Its the nature of the big glitter pieces and I don't mind it at all, I love chunky glitter!

You can find these four polishes and more at the Polish Addict shop and follow the brand on facebook.

  3. Smell of chlorine hahaha I'm a diver so I'm constantly in that chlorine, I think I'm perma-scented with it! But that one is still my favorite look. :)
