HITS Mari Moon Trendy

Well the past week has been pretty eventful! I had been hoping to get a few more posts up, but between the weather, driving my mom to the airport, working like crazy, and getting sick, I didn't get around to it. I'm planning to be more consistent now, especially because two packages of pretties came for me! One from Llarowe, and one from Transdesign! Today I have a polish from Llarowe. It's called Trendy and is part of HITS Mari Moon collection of duo and mulitichromes. I really wasn't expecting to like this one as much as I did. It flashes from a yellowish green to a more grassy color and has a gorgeous metallic finish. Formula wise it seemed fine, the brush was a little thick and hard to control so my coats ended up thicker than I wanted and I have some bubbling in a few spots :( Still a beautiful color! 3 coats with topcoat.
Sorry about my short nails too, I've been having a terrible time with them breaking and peeling lately.

 You can see on my index finger where my nail peeled :(

My First Post!

I started this blog mainly to share my love of nail polish, but I will also post about other things like music and fitness on occasion. But mostly nail polish :) Right now I'm waiting on my camera to charge, then I'll post some pictures of my NOTD!

Alright so this is actually a few days after I wrote that first part. Here in Alberta the weather can change pretty quickly and we ended up getting a few gross snowy days! So now it's sunny again and I could finally take pictures. Of course, in the meantime I changed my nails.

Today I am wearing Iris, a blue-toned purple by Joe Fresh. At least I promise in real life it's purple, my camera only makes it look blue no matter how much I try to get it to show purple! Formula wise, it's alright. I had problems with a few other Joe Fresh polishes so I wasn't expecting much from this one, but it was okay! Some chipping and tip wear happened at work but I work with my hands and I didn't wear topcoat, my fault on that one. Joe Fresh polishes are available at Superstores in Canada and retail for 3/$10 (dirt cheap, so no wonder the formula is hit or miss!) This was 3 coats.


Actually now that I'm looking at the pictures, they are true to color! Silly camera!
