Indie Wednesday: 365 Days of Color’s Birthday Bash and Make Me Laugh-y Taffy
Hello fellow polish monsters!
It’s time for my second Indie Wednesday! I was torn on what to post today- but that always seems to be the case! I have too many beautiful polishes I want to show everyone!
At the last minute I decided to show off 2 of my polishes from 365 Days of Color- Birthday Bash and Make Me Laugh-y Taffy! This is because the shop is set to open in 30 minutes! For those who don’t view this RIGHT when I post (which is to say, everyone), that’s 6pm EST/5pm CST/3pm PST. These will both be available, though Make Me Laugh-y Taffy will no longer be sold after today and only created on a made-to-order basis.
You can buy these lovelies at this site, and find 365 Days of Color on Facebook here.
On to the swatches!
First up is Birthday Bash.
Birthday Bash is a white polish filled with multi-colored flakes and blue glitter. You guys all know how I love my flakes!
Application was… ok. It went on smoothly and fine, but I did have some trouble controlling it. See my pre-cleanup photo:
Proof that I fail at putting on polish! Darn you small nubbin nails!
Luckily, it cleans up quickly and easily. I use a small paintbrush dipped in remover and run it along the creases after I apply polish- this time just needed a little more.
Voila! Problem solved 🙂
This is a very subtle but pretty polish. The white is fairly opaque, so the flakes just add an occasional pop! of faint color. If the polish were yellow, it would remind me of funfetti cake!
Unlike most glitter polishes, this came off quickly and easily with remover. Which is good, because I was rushing so that I could also show off…
Make Me Laugh-y Taffy!
I really, really, really love this polish. I had thought when I bought Birthday Bash I would love it more, but this one is still my favorite! Make Me Laugh-y Taffy is a pink jelly polish filled to the brim with multi-colored flakes. All of the following pictures are only 2 coats of the polish!!!
Just look at all those flakes in only 2 easy coats!
Unlike it’s less flashier cousin, Make Me Laugh-y Taffy applied like a dream. I did NO cleanup for these pictures. I didn’t even need to dab the polish around, the flakes all went on like that! (Though I did dab a little- but it was because I’m slightly OCD about placement. It honestly wasn’t needed)
Looks just like it’s namesake candy…
Maybe a bit more colorful though! 🙂
I hope you all enjoyed seeing my tiny nails showing off these pretty colors! There are SO many other beautiful colors available in the shop, as well as a whole new collection that I can’t wait to get my hands on! Go grab some if you can, and if you miss out just ‘like’ the facebook page to keep up to date on openings!
Until next time!
Laffy Taffy looks good.
365 days of color makes nice polishes.
Lol @ Darn you nubbins. They’ll grow out. Just be patient. 🙂
