Lumina Lacquer Sugar Skulls 2.0

While Halloween is over, Dia de los Muertos is still being celebrated- so I decided to bring out Lumina Lacquer’s Sugar Skulls 2.0!

The original Sugar Skulls was offered last fall, and was very similar to the 2.0 version.   Sugar Skulls 2.0 is filled with small matte glitters in white, blue, green, pink, and a hint of color shifting sparkle.  I had always wanted the original but never bought it- so I grabbed up this one when it was released!

Photos show 2 coats of Sugar Skulls 2.0 over Different Dimension’s Excelsior (which will have it’s own post in a few days), with a Sugar Skull Nail Thins as on over Excelsior as an accent nail.  Application was great, the coverage on Sugar Skulls was wonderful- sometimes with micro matte glitter polishes, it can take a lot of coats to build up a decent opacity- but 2 thin coats was all that was needed.

The Nail Thin was incredibly easy to apply again- but this time, while in a hurry, I didn’t wait for the base polish to completely dry before applying.  It still worked well, but I had a bit of smudging- completely user error on my part.  I highly recommend giving them a look!  You can get 3 packs for $10 on Etsy, and there’s tons of fun things to choose from.

Jindie Nails: Part 2

And here’s the second part of my Jindie Nails review!  Sorry it’s coming a bit late tonight-  lots of stuff going on, and as you guys know if you were reading last week- the World of Warcraft expansion pack just came out, which I do play 🙂  I tried to have all week’s posts written in advance… which didn’t happen!

So anywho, the rest of my gorgeous Jindie Nails photos!  Today I have Halloween colors to show off- Bite Me, Frankenstein Spit, and Tainted Love.

Tainted Love isn’t REALLY a Halloween polish, but I think it looks like it could be!  I was lucky enough to win a full size bottle of this pretty polish, because I picked the winning name!  How fun is that?

Onto the polish!

First up is Bite Me.

Bite Me is a beautiful glitter mix filled with black, purple, and orange glitters in different shapes and sizes.  I used this as a glitter topcoat, but it could easily be layered multiple times for fuller coverage.

 For this mani, I used 1 coat of Bite Me over 2 coats of Finger Paint’s Circus Peanuts.

Next up we have the second color in the Halloween collection, Frankenstein Spit!

Frankenstein Spit is a super fun mix of tiny matte glitters in green, purple, and black.  I love tiny matte glitters!

This is only 1 coat of Frankenstein Spit over 2 coats of Wet N Wild’s Nerd Alert: Screech.  You can’t see the green glitter as well with this undie coat, but I thought that it really brought home the ‘Frankenstein’ idea!

This color could easily have full glitter coverage in just 2-3 coats!

And last but (definitely) not least, we have Tainted Love, my personal favorite!

Tainted Love is a milky white polish filled up with neon yellow, neon pink, and black matte glitters, along with black hearts.

This is 2 coats of Tainted Love on it’s own.  Full coverage with a white in only 2 coats AND still be sheer enough to see glitter in it?  Awesome!

I had to fish a tiny bit for the hearts, but they weren’t overly difficult to get out.   And the tiny glitters are always a bit stubborn- seems I missed a few on cleanup 😉

Right now, Tainted Love is out of stock- but it will be making a return in the future!

You can find Jindie Nails on FacebookInstagram, and on Etsy!   Full size bottles cost $7.75, and they’ve now introduced mini sizes in the most popular colors.

On Friday I’ll be showing off a few shots of the underwear polishes all on their own 🙂

Jindie Nails: Part 1!

As promised on Saturday, I have a lot of  colors from Jindie Nails to show you all!  Rather than spam you with a ton of colors, I’m dividing this up into 2 posts- I’ll be posting the second on Wednesday.  On Tuesday and Thursday, I’ll be showing off a few photos of the ‘underwear’ colors I wore with all of these- lots of drugstore polish love!

Today, I’ll be showing off Water 4 Elephants, Neonderthal, and Strung Out on Compliments.

First up, we have Neonderthal!

Neonderthal is a pretty glitter topcoat full of white, blue, green, and purple matte glitter and just the hint of sparkle here and there.  The photos are shown with 1 coat over Spoiled’s Are Mermaids Real?.

The application on this was fine- no painting issues and the glitter was fairly evenly distrubuted in just 1 coat.  You could get much heavier coverage with 1-2 more coats, but I think this is a ton of fun just with 1 coat!

Next we have Strung Out On Compliments!

Strung Out on Compliments is a mix of ultrafine black, green and blue matte glitter.  I LOVE matte glitter polishes!

This one is denser than Neonderthal, so it could easily be worn on it’s own in a few coats.  My index finger (top of the photo) shows 2 quick coats, while the rest of the nails are sporting 1 thin (believe it or not) coat over Sinful Color’s Sweet Dreams.

And finally, we have my very favorite:  Water 4 Elephants!

This color is a beautiful brownish grey filled with various sizes of blue, green, and color shifting glitter!

This polish was incredibly easy to apply- though not perfect, I didn’t have to do any cleanup for these photos.  The photos show 2 coats of Water 4 Elephants on it’s own- no undercoat.  The first coat was a little thin, but the second coat filled it out beautifully!

You can find Jindie Nails on Facebook, Instagram, and on Etsy!   Full size bottles cost $7.75.  Be sure to check them out!  Jennifer (the awesome lady behind Jindie Nails) offers a TON of polishes, and if you like matte glitter or neon you’ll fall in love with her creations!  (Though if you don’t like either of those, she has goodies for you as well!)

Be sure to check back on Wednesday for the second half of this review!
