Indie Wednesday: Weird Indeed (PIVOT!, On a Break, Love Gunther, Troy & Abed)
Hello again everyone! Today I’m here with my very first Indie Wednesday post!
Most of the time I’ll only be doing 1 polish each week, but sometimes I’ll make exceptions- like with my first post! Today I’ll be highlighting polishes from Weird Indeed.
You can find Weird Indeed at her Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/WeirdIndeed. Her shop is also located on Facebook- just look for ‘Shop Now’ button on the header. She doesn’t always have everything in stock, so be sure to follow her Facebook page for updates of when specific things are in the store!
I currently own 4 colors from this lovely indie shop: ‘On a Break’, ‘PIVOT!’, ‘Love, Gunther’, and ‘Troy & Abed’. I recently ordered Pheebs, but don’t have it yet! Perhaps that will be a future Indie Wednesday post. 🙂 On a Break, PIVOT!, and Love, Gunther are all from her Friends line of polishes, which also include Pheebs, Smelly Cat and The Routine. Troy & Abed are part of the BFF collection, which also includes Blossom & Six, and Daria & Jane.
First up is PIVOT! Fans of Friends will probably remember the episode this comes from, but I’m including pictures with each polish to refresh memories or as a reference for people that haven’t seen the shows.
PIVOT! is a beautiful turquoise blue with a splash of fine silver holographic glitter in it that gives the polish a very light sparkle.
PIVOT! applied well and fairly evenly. The pictures were taken with 2 coats, but I probably should have used 3 for fuller coverage. 1 coat of Poshe fast drying top coat.
Next up is Love, Gunther!
Poor Gunther. Always in love with Rachel, and always forgotten or ignored. Much like the character, this shade was initially overlooked and ignored by a lot of people. Hopefully people will change their minds, because this color is beautiful!
Love, Gunther is a beautiful, shimmering rose pink – almost a hot pink, but not quite. It’s filled with fine silver flecks that give it a very subtle shine. I didn’t have a chance to use a matte top coat, but there are photos that way on Weird Indeed’s Facebook page- it looks beautiful as well! This is also 2 coats topped with Poshe fast drying topcoat.
The final Friends polish I have to show off is ‘On A Break’!
Ross and Rachel… *sigh*
‘On A Break’ is a limited edition shade from Weird Indeed. This one is so pretty!
It’s a grape purple filled with holo flecks and ultra fine gold glitter. The final effect on the nail is subtle but beautiful! 2 coats topped with Poshe fast drying topcoat.
And my very last (but not least) polish to show off is ‘Troy & Abed’!
For those that don’t know, Troy and Abed are two best friends on the show Community. These guys take ‘bromance’ to a new level! These 2 are my very favorite characters on the show (though I love them all!) so I had to buy this as soon as it was available.
Troy & Abed is a very very pale blue (almost white) polish with glitter. The larger and small glitter is pink, white, green, blue, and yellow, and then there’s also fine blue glitter as well as a shimmer. The color is fairly opaque, so you do get that jelly-sandwich like effect but with the glitters a little more covered. The final result is subtle (noticing a theme?) and very pretty. Again, 2 coats topped with Poshe fast drying topcoat.
Cool. Cool cool cool.
So that’s it! Each polish costs $8.00 and shipping is $2.00 for the first polish and 50 cents for each additional. Check them out!
Until next time,
~Diana, The Polish Monster
These are so cool. Troy and Abed look lovely!!! I love white based glitters!

They are! Weird Indeed is just a great indie brand if you’re looking for a bit more subtle pretty, though she does have a few glitter polishes. She’s SO sweet too! She designed those labels herself!!
