Polish My Life 1950s Mint 'Fridge

Nothing To Disclose

Happy Saint Patrick's Day! How do you celebrate today? I don't necessarily do anything special but I try to at least wear green. Polish My Life 1950s Mint 'Fridge is a perfect mint green creme to end this 7 Days of St. Patrick's.

I used a base of Duri Rejuvacote, 3 coats of polish and finished with Glisten & Glow H K Girl top coat. I had hoped this would have been plenty opaque in 2 coats but I really needed the 3rd. What I love about this polish is that it has this teeny tiny silver shimmer added in that you don't see while wearing but it just adds to the shine of this polish. This is from the All Things Vintage collection that I picked up last year. If I recall correctly, you are supposed to double up on base coat to ensure none of these polishes stain because of the heavy creme pigment but I didn't have any issues with just my normal Duri Rejuvacote (one coat).

I LOVE this color. I wish my parents were still around so I could ask them if they knew anyone with this color of fridge because it screams the 50s to me. I can definitely see myself wearing this more and I'm seriously considering it for my pedicure. It's just bright and happy. Fair warning, this polish is currently sold out.

Zoya Tiana

Nothing To Disclose

Today in my series of greens I have Zoya Tiana from the Delight collection. This is a nice pastel mint green creme that reminds me of Easter.

I used a base coat of Zoya Anchor, 2 coats of polish and finished with Zoya Armor. I don't have as quick of drying time with Armor, so be sure to make sure and let all layers dry before moving around. I don't recommend using a different base or top coat with Zoya as their formulas all work in harmony with each other. Every time I've tried to wear a Zoya manicure with a different base or top coat, I get shrinkage, lifting or just general messy stuff going on.


This is definitely a lighter green with no staining thankfully. It isn't really yellow based but more of a straight mint which I like with my skin color. I did have a little bit of clean up necessary but it worked well.

Sinful Colors Feeling Lucky?

Press Sample

Glitter topper polishes - love them or hate them? Either way, they are an instant way to get nail art to your nails. Today I have Sinful Colors Feeling Lucky? a limited edition polish in stores now. This polish has bright green microglitter in 2 sizes, lime green round glitter and gold 4 leaf clover glitter all suspended in a clear base.

I decided to layer one coat of Feeling Lucky? over JulieG Gelato in Venice. The microglitters and round glitter applied properly but I had to fish around for a gold 4 leaf clover that I placed on my ring finger. Unfortunately, my ring finger is more curved than I thought so the glitter stuck up and caught on everything before peeling off. I topped all layers of polish with Glisten & Glow H K Girl top coat.


I really like how well the different sizes of glitters play off each other and how well they applied in one coat. My only downfall was using the 4 leaf clover on my ring finger instead of my middle finger (which is more of a flat nail).

Girly Bits It's Hoop to be Square

Nothing To Disclose

I have a soft spot for neons - I love them to pieces but I don't wear them nearly enough. I purchased the Girly Bits "Hoop! There It Is" collection but haven't put them on so today, let's change that! This is It's Hoop to be Square.

I used a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, 3 coats of polish and finished with Glisten & Glow H K Girl top coat. This polish does apply smoothly but I did see a couple of bald spots where the polish pulled on itself. Also this is a very yellow based (lime) green neon but thankfully, no staining. Also in my photos you can see some white pigment at the bottom of the bottle. It's just pigment being pigment - nothing to effect the actual polish formula or wear.


Another hot neon! No white base on this polish either but it's not needed. Just major eye burning colors.

China Glaze Drink Up Witches

Nothing To Disclose

Today I have a wickedly good green for you - from the Ghouls' Night Out collection from China Glaze, it's Drink Up Witches which is such a great pun. This neon green polish leans more yellow green but thankfully, no staining. I cannot deal with stainers right now.

I used a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, 3 coats of polish and finished with Glisten & Glow H K Girl top coat. Now neons are normally matte by nature, but this polish seemed shiny even without the top coat. I added it for protection of course. As for the formula, it was a little thin, and that's why I needed 3 coats and then I had to be sure not to bubble it up on the nail, as the formula wanted to run down the brush and glob on. China Glaze can be hit or miss on some of their formulas and this was definitely a watery one.


I did not use a white base coat on this polish but just LOOK and see how it glows! I'm a little messy - my right hand is in a wrist brace for now, so polishing is a little difficult, but you can always clean up with some polish remover and a small brush. I'm still using my trusty e.l.f. "concealer" brush that I got for $1, but I can't seem to find it in stores anymore so I hope it lasts a good long while. This one has lasted over a year. Back to the polish - it's just eye searing greatness.

ILNP Lucky One

Nothing To Disclose

How are you enjoying St. Patrick's Day this year? I have to work but I'm at least getting festive with my nails! Be sure to check out the InLinkz at the bottom of the posting for all the other great looks brought to you by bloggers around the web! Today I have ILNP Lucky You from the Holiday 2015 collection. Just like Cherry Luxe, this is a festive green with silver flake and falls into their Metallic collection. Also like Cherry Luxe, there's a surprise at the end!

I used a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, 2 coats of polish and finished with Glisten & Glow H K Girl top coat. This green has a bit of blue to it (versus yellow) but thankfully no staining. I did have to wash my hands after removal to get any left over silver flakie but I didn't have to scrub any polish off my nails. Removal was super simple, like a creme polish.


In my light box, you can see a lot of the silver flake reflecting and just a hint of, is that holo? YES IT'S HOLO.


Lots of holo! This last photo is in the sun and intentionally a little blurred so you can see all the holo goodness that's packed into this polish. It's definitely a hidden gem and I love the dual purpose of this polish - a flakie, a holo oh yes, and it's green. Winner.

Sinful Colors Exotic Green

Press Sample

Guess what's coming up? St. Patrick's! I teamed up with some of the best bloggers out there to bring you 7 Days of St. Patrick's! We are posting polishes and nail art looks that revolve around green. Today I have a polish from Sinful Colors called Exotic Green from the Sham-Rockin collection.

I used a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, 3 coats of polish and finished with Glisten & Glow H K Girl top coat. This polish is a bit of a jelly, so I used 3 coats to try and cover the whole nail. I didn't realize this was a jelly until the first coat so it was a surprise. This green reminds me of a squishy cactus.


There is quite a bit of yellow in this polish but thankfully I didn't have any staining. This would be the perfect base for nail art or just to wear out because you rock that green. Rock it.
