Welcome to the first installation of Liz's Friday Indie Daze! I've been brainstorming for awhile about something to really highlight my love and adoration of indie polishes while allowing me to work through my collection and this is what I've come up with. Each week I will be swatching and reviewing polishes from various indie artists. So exciting!
For my inaugural post I will be sharing two spectacular polishes from Painted Sabotage. I found these lovelies on Etsy, and let me tell you... Total. Package. Check out the store! You'll thank me!
This gorgeous green is called Moon Jelly, and it is amazing. A mix of green, gold, teal, and iridescent glitters suspended in a green base that hangs somewhere between sea glass and freshly mown grass. After three thin coats the polish was completely opaque and I was completely in love.
Ooooooh, look at how it catches the light! This green glitter polish is a driving hazard for sure - I found myself checking out my hands at every red light on my work commute. Please use precautions and drive with your eyes on the road while wearing this polish!
For something a little different, look no further than Gargle Blaster. (If you immediately get the reference, I think that we should be friends. Really. Let's make it happen.) Check this bad boy out! Soft, minty green base with silver hexes, fuchsia squares, and subtle grey glitter work together to make quite the statement.
This polish is another three coater, and it applied very well. There was no awkward dabbing to make the polish distribute evenly which is a huge plus in my opinion. I love the way that the colors work together in such a flattering and exciting way.
Aside from the face that these polishes are fantastic in terms of application and color combinations, I adore the fact that these are some sneaky-geeky polishes! Confession Time... even after all this time, I still have heart pangs when I think about NerdLacquer, so when I find gorgeous polishes with geeky names and inspirations it helps to fill the void. Painted Sabotage has certainly filled the void in an AWESOME way and I will be keeping a close eye on the Painted Sabotage Etsy site... it's always a good day for a new indie!
