A Beautiful Life Hot Rod

Today I have a new line of polish for you called A Beautiful Life [official website].  Not only do they sell nail polish, but also makeup, perfume, skincare and more.  The nail polish is big 3 free, long wearing and chip resistant, non-toxic and soy based, recyclable packaging, and safe for kids.  They have a nice range of colors from cremes to shimmers, frost and what I'm calling a neon.  A Beautiful Life was founded by husband and wife team Tony and Jennifer Artur in New Jersey.  Hot Rod is a candy apple red that has a surprise red shimmer in it.  It doesn't translate as well on camera, but it was really pretty on the nail.

I used a base coat of Dermelect Launchpad, 2 coats of Hot Rod and I didn't use a top coat this time.  A Beautiful Life makes a 2 in 1 Top/Base Coat but I don't have it but I wanted to check the dry time.  The formula was great!  Not too thin, not thick, and no pooling into my cuticles.  The brush was a little awkward for me because the top is shorter than I'm used to, but it wasn't unmanageable.

Check out how pretty this color is in the sun!
BAM.  It's definitely a very pretty bold red and like I said, while you can't see it - the shimmer is in there and is so pretty!

In the shade, it's still such a stunning color.  Now dry time wasn't horrible but it did dent after I came inside after taking pictures.  A top coat would have stopped that, I know.  I have another color and their soy nail polish remover to review coming up later this week, so see you tomorrow readers!

A Beautiful Life is available on their website [official store] for $12 a bottle.
