Peita’s Polish Miss Dixie and Enchanted Polish Seven Nation Army

Nothing like a giveaway to see a crazy spike in traffic- welcome to all my new friends and followers!   If you didn’t already enter, go check out my Big Birthday Bloviversary Giveaway!

Speaking of friends, this is one of my very favorite aspects of being part of the nail polish community.  I’ve made so many wonderful, close friends over the past year and a half.   And the polishes in this post came from 2 of them!

My awesome friend Peita is super sweet, and is also the genius behind Peita’s Polish.  I have a few of her creations now, including the original Miss Dixie, and now the reformulated version that is part of the giveaway!  We’ve been sending each other enormous swap packages back and forth for over a year now- if you love swapping, I really encourage girls (or guys!) to find ‘polish pen pals’ in other countries!   Enchanted Polish Seven Nation Army was a birthday gift from my friend Jen of Jen’s Nail Files- who is also incredibly sweet and generous (and also loves to swap- if you’re new to swapping, Jen tends to find you!  If you love candy, she’s your girl for sure!).

Anywho- first up is Peita’s Polish Miss Dixie!

Miss Dixie is a neon pink holographic polish with a faint blue flash.  The holo effect is subtle, but it adds a beautiful shimmery sparkle throughout.

Application was great- it was almost fully opaque at just 1 coat, but 2 made it perfect.  Photos show 2 coats plus topcoat.

Then I added 1 coat of Enchanted Polish Seven Nation Army on top of Miss Dixie!

Seven Nation Army is a holographic topcoat filled with itty bitty black and white hex glitters.  All of the glitters are very small, which makes it a bit different than most black and white glitter offerings.

Application was good, as you can see I got a good amount of glitter with just 1 coat.  I did a tiny bit of dabbing to ensure I didn’t have a large empty spot, but otherwise the glitter went on with regular brush strokes.

I LOVE this mani- I keep staring at my nails!  Of course it’s pink and sparkly and fun- it’s impossible that I wouldn’t love it 🙂

There’s only one downside to these polishes- neither are the easiest to get!  I know, I’m sorry for that.

Peita’s Polish is an Australian indie brand- though she DOES ship internationally!  You’ll just be paying a bit more (if you’re in the US) for shipping and have to wait patiently a bit longer.  Enchanted Polish- well, I think most  of us know how challenging Enchanted Polishes can be to snag 🙂  Monthly restocks are fast and furious, and there’s not always a guarantee a particular color will be restocked.  I feel it’s worth it- but it can be stressful and intimidating if it’s your first time (or 50th time).

Polish Monster’s Big Birthday Blogiversary Giveaway!

Well, it’s unsurprisingly a little later than I planned- but it’s finally here!  My giveaway!

My big 3-0 birthday was at the end of August, and my blog turned 1 year old at the end of June.  My blog’s birthday sort of snuck past me, and so I decided to celebrate it alongside my birthday!

I’ve always loved the movie 13 Going on 30, so for my 30th I decided to run with that as the theme.  You’ll notice a few of the prizes are inspired by it!

Enough talking- on to the prizes you could win!

Prize #1 contains the Above the Curve duo Arrivederci and Au Revoir, Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Floppy. Hoppy. BUNNIES! and a custom Little Lazy called Cutie Beebee!

Prize #3 contains Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Oh, We’re Not Together, Lucky 13 Lacquer Fight Like a Girl, Takko Lacquer Heads Will Roll, Contrary Polish Gift Wrap, and Peita’s Polish Miss Dixie!

And last but not least- each prize pack gets these!  A custom For Goodness Grape lip shimmer in Razzle Red (it’s a red, shimmery lip tint with a razzleberry flavor), and 2 Monster Polishes (that’s what my own polishes are called, for those that didn’t know!)  made specifically for these events.  Please excuse the lack of labels in the photo- I just ordered some new ones that will arrive before the giveaway ends!
The first is Razzle Red, which I created for my birthday.  It’s a glitter topcoat filled with every shape, shade and size of red and pink glitter I had in my glitter tub with a pink shimmer.  The second is Monster’s Ball, which I created for my blog’s anniversary.  It’s a frosty holographic purple polish filled with color shifting glitters and flakes.  Swatches of both of these will be on the blog in the next few days!

And now onto the official stuff.
