JindieNails - Review Part 1

Got Glitter? - Stompin' Gilbert Grapes - Purple People Pleaser
Hey Lovelies!

First off I have to apologize and beg forgiveness from Jen for taking so long to get this review up. Between the GPWs, sickness, and both jobs, October was a busy, busy month. Thanks for being so understanding, you're a rockstar!

I had to split this review up into a couple of different parts because I took so many photos and didn't want to overload just one post, so I will have a Part 2 up in a few days. Don't forget to check back!

I don't remember where I first came across JindieNails, whether it was on Facebook or Etsy, but the first polish I saw was Purple People Pleaser (which I still affectionately refer to as After Party LOL) and I HAD to have it. Jen describes it as, "'my baby' of all my polish". It is a hearty mix of black, white and purple matte glitter, with blue and lavender metallic glitter in a clear, blue shimmery base. It gorgeous. Photos don't do it justice because it so hard to catch the shimmer effect with a lens. I stood outside in the 35 degree weather in pajama pants and a t-shirt trying to get a good photo of it and finally had to call it quits, my fingers were going numb but its definitely visible with the naked eye.

This is 2 coats of Purple People Pleaser over 2 coats of Essie Borrowed & Blue. PPP is packed and required no glitter placement or fishing. The formula was very nice, thick enough to keep the glitter in place while you apply it, but not so thick that it felt globby. I really enjoyed this one. (Click to enlarge)

Next up is Stompin' Gilbert Grapes. It has lavender, purple, and green hexes and squares with pink and purple micro glitters in a milky white jelly base. I hate to pin a 'seasonal note' to this but it would be a super cute choice for Spring or Easter. This is 2 coats of Stompin' Gilbert Grapes over white. Zero glittery placement with this one as well, it applied very smooth. (Click to enlarge)

The last GORGEOUS JindieNails creation is one that I wasn't sure I was going to be crazy about because it looked like a typical silver glitter bomb online, but BOY was I wrong! It ended up being my FAAAAVORITE. It is far from just a typical glitter bomb and I am so sorry for passing judgement before I saw it in person. Got Glitter? is simply gorgeous! I layered it over black with a coat of Ghoulish Glow (which is why it looks a little grey). Got Glitter? has a clear base packed with silver holo stars, diamonds, bar glitter, and large hexes, mixed with medium sized green, blue, turquoise and pink metallic hexes. The combination of the silver bits with the colored hexes is really unique. Its one of those polishes you have to look at for awhile to truly figure it all out. Application was a little tricky because of the mini bottle, but you're going to need a full size anyway so you should have no issues what so ever. ;) This is 2 coats.

This was my first 'taste' of JindieNails polish and I have to say I've become quite the fan girl (her Christmas line is going to be EPIC). The variety in her Etsy store is gorgeous, unique, well thought out, and priced very reasonably. I will definitely be picking up more in the near future.

Part 2 will feature Water 4 Elephants and Oh, U Fancy Huh?

  1. I really love Got Glitter?; excellent glitter effect!! And I really like the grayish black of the undercoat! I'll have to try that with my own glow in the dark polish, lol.

  2. @KathyB - Blogger won't let me reply to you, dang it! It IS gorgeous! I got so many compliments on it at work, and the GITD was just fun as heck!
