Indie Wednesday: Polished Components Hydrangea and Future

Today I’m going to be showing off some very pretty indies- Hydrangea and Future from Polished Components!

I picked these up awhile ago, but I just got word that Hydrangea can *no longer be made*.  There’s only a very small number left (single digits), so if you really want it- I suggest you try to grab one quickly!  I’ll post links at the end of the post.

 

First up I’m going to show off Hydrangea.

 

This is a beautiful shade of purple, packed with purple and blue shimmer.  If you’re a fan of simple, understated indies over glitter bombs, Polished Components is a great store to check out.  She offers a little bit of everything!

For these photos I used 2 coats of Hydrangea.   I didn’t use a topcoat, because I knew I would be adding Future to it once photos were done!

Look at that beautiful shimmer 🙂

Next up, I layered 2 coats of Future on top of Hydrangea (although 1 would have been plenty).

Future is a really awesome flakie topcoat.  Ya’ll know how I’m a sucker for flakes!

The flakes in Future are the kind I love- the thin variety that go on smoothly.  They’re a beautiful mix of iridescent purple, blue, and a charcoal color.  The purple are a bit larger than the blue and charcoal so that you don’t see them as easily, but they give off a beautiful color shift.  This is definitely a different mix of flakie colors than any others I have!

Again with this mani, like many over the past week, I did no cleanup.  While it may not look as perfect as it could, if the application is good and doesn’t ‘need’ cleanup, I like to try and leave it as normal as possible for everyone to see what they’d be working with!

You can find Polished Components here on Etsy, and here on Facebook.  She has some adorable new labels for her bottles now too- but I bought mine a few months ago!

Be sure to check out the shop!

I have grand plans of posting something tomorrow, but my track record with ‘unplanned’ posts isn’t good.  So if not tomorrow, I’ll see you all on Friday!
