Nail Sauce’s Cloud 9

13 Feb

If you know me, I’m a sucker for glitter in milky white base type of polishes. When I received Nail Sauce’s Valentina collection to review, I instantly knew I would fall heads over heels for Cloud 9.

cloud9_3As you can see, it is in a milky white base with these yummy pastel glitter bits in various shapes and sizes. Cloud 9 is part of Nail Sauce’s Valentina collection. Application was awesome. Usually with these type of milky white bases, the biggest concern would be these annoying streak polish lines where white doesn’t look even in certain areas on the nail. I am so pleased that Cloud 9 did NOT have this problem! Opacity was achieved by the third coat. However, I decided to do four very thin coats of Cloud 9 to maximize the brightness of this color. I did not use any “undies” with this Cloud 9 manicure. Here’s another picture showing the bottle better.

Femme Fatale Lacquer’s Mermaids in the Midst

10 Feb

This is the other polish that was sent to me by Femme Fatale Lacquer for review recently. Mermaids in the Midst is a plum jelly with holographic glitter. Teal hexes and little round gold glitter ones are the ones that stand out the most. This is from the Spring 2013 collection.

I decided to paint my nails with a color that’s close to this plum jelly base. I chose OPI’s Pepe’s Purple Passion which is from the Muppets collection (Holiday 2011). I have two coats of Pepe’s Purple Passion on with only one coat of Femme Fatale Lacquer’s Mermaids in the Midst.

It was very refreshing to review a high-quality product like this one. It takes 3 coats to full opacity. Application itself was amazing. You couldn’t get any more perfect than this! It went on evenly. The polish consistency itself wasn’t watery or gloopy. It was just right! Here’s another picture of Lust Is In The Air by Tryst Lacquers.
