I've got two more polishes from Nayll to show you today; if you missed yesterday's post, Nayll is an innovative site where you can select bases, glitters, and shimmers to make and name your own polishes. As I mentioned in my previous post, Nayll also has a line of pre-mixed polishes you can choose from.
I've got two glitter mixes, as well as a review of Nayll's Smooth It Out Glitter Top Coat. Read on after the jump!
I'm On The VIP List is a purple jelly base with purple squares, pink holo hex, and black skull glitter. Unfortunately I didn't get any skulls out, but there was plenty of pink and purple glitter in just one easy coat!
The base on this is pretty sheer, so I layered one coat over OPI Vant To Bite My Neck?. One coat of Nayll Smooth It Out Glitter Top Coat finishes it off. I'm not usually a huge fan of pink and purple together, but something about the deep purple jelly base just manages to pull it all together for me; I really like this one!
Although most of my swatches of Nayll were topped with the Smooth It Out Glitter Top Coat, the mani that I actually wore it over for a day was a polish I showed in yesterday's post, The Definite Article. I used just one coat, and it dried very quickly which was awesome. It appeared to be great at smoothing out the glitters, but when I woke up the next morning (approximately 10-12 hours after polishing) it had sunk into the glitter and wasn't very smooth any more. It unfortunately caused some shrinkage at my tips, including the little chunk you can see out of the corner of my index finger in the photo below. It had also bubbled like crazy which is pretty annoying for close-up photos, but wasn't visible at all from arm's length when you're blinded by a crazy reflective glitter! I'll do a bit more testing in the future with more coats for better smoothing power, and different bases and application techniques to try to prevent the bubbling. I'll update with how that goes!
Birthday Shots is a clear base packed with blue and pink micro holo bars, and micro gold holo hex glitters. So much sparkle going on in this one!
I layered one easy coat over LaCC 1969, the formula was the best of all the Nayll polishes. I got a lot of glitter with just one coat, but you could easily add even more sparkle with two coats, and maybe even full coverage at 3-4 coats. Again, one coat of Smooth It Out Glitter Top Coat. Most of the swatches I've seen of this are either over neutrals or black, but I really love it over the green; I think it would look good over a lot of different shades though!
You can create and purchase Nayll polishes online here. As well as the main premis of being able to creat your own mixes, there is a really solid collection of pre-mixed polishes to choose from, as well as gather inspiration from! What do you think? :)
