Go Pink Wednesday: International Brands and Indies!

Good afternoon everyone!  I couldn’t decide which mani to use for today’s Go Pink Wednesday- so I decided to show off both!

My first look is using 2 international polishes- Tip Top Nails Popsicle that you saw in yesterday’s post, topped with Passe Nati Sabrina Sato- Quero Amor.

How fun!  Quero Amor is a gorgeous green-shift flakie in a light pink jelly base, filled with glitter!

Of course flakes don’t show up as well over colors that aren’t black or dark, but when I put my hand in the shade it was easy to spot them!

And now for my second mani- This one is a gorgeous color from Fanchromatic Nails!

It’s called Layer Cake- and I knew I needed it just for the name!  This polish is inspired by Kaylee from the amazing show Firefly- which was sadly only on for 1 season.

Inara: I see Kaylee’s here.
Mal: Yeah, crying Cinderella tears.  You should have seen her when I told her she could have that layer cake she’s wearing.
Inara: I think she looks adorable.

So this polish is a homage to Kaylee’s completely over the top, adorable, so ‘her’ dress that she had to wear to the big shindig.  I love Kaylee 🙂

This polish is so beautiful!  It’s an amazing light pink linear holo, spotted with holographic pink glitter.

For these photos I wore 2 coats of Layer Cake over 1 coat of Zoya’s Rory, but it can easily be worn on it’s own.  I previously wore 3 coats of Layer Cake alone just fine!   It was just too cloudy for photos that day 🙂

Hope you enjoyed the different looks!

Sadly- Tip Top Nails can only be purchased in South Africa, and Passe Nati can be found in Brazil (Llarowe does carry some of the brand, but not this particular polish).

Fanchromatic Nails can be found here on Etsy, and you can follow their Facebook Page for news and updates!  I’ll be showing off a few other beautiful colors from Lynae at Fanchromatic tomorrow, so be sure to check back!

A Look at Tip Top Nails

A few weeks ago, Tip Top Nails contacted me and were sweet enough to send me a few of their beautiful colors all the way from South Africa to try out!  If you’re not already following Tip Top’s Facebook page, I highly reccomend it!  They frequently give out awesome tips and tutorials 🙂

I recieved 5 beautiful colors- Perfect For Me, Perfect Look, Wild Thing, Popsicle, and Turbulence- as well as a combination base coat and topcoat All-In-One.  I used the All-In-One as my basecoat for each color and it worked wonderfully!  Now on to pretty pictures!

First up is Perfect For Me, a bright neon pink!

This is a bright, glossy neon pink- not too blindingly bright, but still neon!  I used 2 coats for these photos and no topcoat.  A neon that’s glossy and not matte!

Next is Perfect Look, a sheer white jelly.

It wasn’t clear from the bottle, but this is definitely more of a jelly polish- it’d be perfect for jelly sandwiches.  The photos are of 4 coats, and there was still NVL.  It reminds me a lot of a slightly whiter version of Essie Marshmallow, which is (was) my favorite go-to polish for jelly sandwiches!

Tip Top’s Popsicle, a gorgeous peach-leaning pink with a strong pink-silver shimmer.

This was my very favorite of the bunch- and I did love them all!  The photos show 2 coats, no topcoat.

Wild Thing, a beautiful shimmering ocean blue.

This photo shows 2 coats, no topcoat.  You’ll see it again Thursday playing underwear duty for another polish!

And last but not least, I have Turbulance- a gorgeous shimmering midnight blue that leans a tiny bit purple.

These photos are 2 coats, no topcoat, just like all the others.  They’re all just so shiny and pretty!

I hope you enjoyed my photo spam!  Sadly Tip Top Nails is only available in South Africa 😦  But you can check out their Facebook page, and you can find their main webpage here!    Be sure to check back tomorrow for Go Pink Wednesday- I’ll be showing off 2 separate manis!
