Parrot Polish!

Press Release


Today I have a brand new Indie polish brand to show you! They're called Parrot Polish, named simply after their love for birds! Their polishes are 3 free, and they have a pretty great selection! On to the swatches..

Purple Haze
3 coats
No top coat

This is a pretty purple polish with a subtle teal shine to it! The shine was hard to capture on camera, but it is a gorgeous polish.

2 coats
No top coat

Blink! is a dusty pink with a slight purple shimmer to it. Again, its subtle, but its there and it differentiates this polish from any other pink. Super nice for the spring time, can't wait to wear it then!

I took a close up so you can better see the purple shimmer! Its very apparent in the sun.

1 coat over black
No top coat

My personal favorite of the 3, Essence is a gorgeous topper with pink and purple shimmer in. One coat adds the perfect amount of color! I've also tried it over Blink! and they are basically made for each other. I forgot to take pictures though.. sigh.

Check out Parrot Polish over at www.parrotpolish.com. They have quite the selection of polishes so theres bound to be something for everyone!

Thanks for reading!

Can we talk about Nailtini for a minute?


I received my May Ipsy bag recently which contained Nailtini Nail Polish in the color Bloody Mary.

Generally retailing around $12, this isn't a polish that I would normally pick up nowadays due to my unfortunate part time employment at the moment. But.. stay with me here.

This is ONE COAT with NO top coat! I couldn't believe it. It completely covers everything, applied really well, was basically streak free and shined like crazy! 

I decided to pop China Glaze - Fang-tastic on top and Seche Vite on that and voila, easy and colorful manicure!

I must try more Nailtini products in the future.

What is your favorite nail polish brand?

I've got a bottle of nail polish and a microscope.


Can I start by telling you.. I am so excited about this post.
About a week ago, my boyfriend purchased a microscope. Its nothing super duper fancy but its nice and its fun to have. So obviously.. we took pictures of nail polish.

First, let me show you the polish we're looking at today: Orly - Aqua Pixel

Aqua Pixel is described by Orly as an Aqua 3D Glitter with a Pixelated Finish. It is essentially a liquid sand polish that dries gritty and sandy, and it also looks gorgeous smoothed out with a top coat. This is already a complex and beautiful polish.

And here it is underneath a microscope!

So weird that it looks way more blue. But honestly, a lot of polishes didn't look like we imagined they would! Also the bottle and swatch pictures are a bit lighter than it looks in real life.

Since this was literally the first polish we looked at, the picture isn't perfect. Probably also because we took it by sticking my camera against the eyepiece like absolute noobs. However, once I can afford to I'd love to get a picture/video taking eyepiece for it so I can take way better pictures of polishes!

I'm thinking I'll make a bit of a series of this, since I think its SO FREAKING COOL.

I honestly think it looks like a blue desert. So crazy! And I've got a bunch more really cool polishes to show you in future posts!

What polish would you want to see under a microscope?
