Hello lovelies,

 

I've been trying Polish TBH for the first time and today I'll show you two shades.

 

"Polish TBH is a 5 free, high quality indie line created by Christian M in Southern California. The line was created out of love and obsession with the Britney Spears Fantasy perfume line and has quickly evolved into over 30 beautiful & unique shades. All polishes are handmade with high quality ingredients."

 

First up is Chocolate Frogs, a brown shimmer base with copper, gold and blue glitter. I like the colour and the glitter combination and of course the name! The formula wasn't as good as I had hoped for. It was thick and harder to work with yet still manageable. i found that using thicker coats helped with the application. The pigmentation was good and two thicker coats provided full coverage. It dried rather average probably due to thicker coats and not completely smooth so I've applied topcoat.

The second polish is Pyskhe, a medium blue jelly with fine magenta shimmer and fine silver glitter particles. The shade of blue is very beautiful and vibrant in the bottle but it is not as well pigmented. I have applied two thick coats to get good coverage but you would need three coats if you prefer thin coats. The formula itself was thicker but manageable. I needed a coat of topcoat to get completely smooth surface.

Just from these two polishes, my thoughts are that the formula could do with some improvement especially the thickness of it. On the other hand I like the colours & glitter mixes Polish TBH does, especially the Chocolate Frogs. You can also expect some nail art with both shades and I'm also testing the Polish TBH cuticle oil.

Hello lovelies,

I have to confess to something - every time a big holiday comes I have an artist's block and I just can't think of any original ideas. I don't like to copy, I like to create something new and that's hard when you know there is a 'deadline' coming. I have one specifically 'Christmassy' post coming but it just seems to me that everything has been done before :-/

Today's manicure has Winter theme and I absolutely fell in love with the cosy and soft look. I usually don't wear lavender colours as I feel they don't suit me but I loved this look!

I have used China Glaze Sweet Hook as a base colour, then added multi-coloured glitter (China Glaze Your Present Required) to all but one nail. I created a snowflake accent finger using Bundle Monster BM-323 and A England Excalibur.

 

I hope you like it and have a great day!
