Mini Bio

Original and eccentric is how we like things around here. A lot of sparkle and a ton of glitz. As a self proclaimed nail polish junkie, I thought I’d apply my skills for putting some awesome pretties together for all to enjoy! All of my items are made by hand with care. We pack and ship personally so your order will be sent out promptly!

The first thing that got me about this polish was the name 🙂 I needed a polish in my collection called “We can Pickle That”!!  Once I used it – I found that it applied evenly, and opaque with 3 coats.  Probably, I should have used a second coat of Seche to make it a glassier finish, but I’m still very pleased with the end results this polish created 🙂

After first trying “Put a Bird On It” by itself (see false nail swatch in photo) – my preference was to have a little bit of a darker blue as the base color.

The glitter in this polish is to die for!  The polish it’s in…well…it could be me, but I had a few problems with the application.  It is extremely sheer, but that is how it was created.  My issue in the application of it was, that if I didn’t want it to have streaks, I needed to add another coat – when I added another coat, it started getting thick looking.

As it turned out, the way I resolved this, was to have a matte topcoat.  Once that was applied (why didn’t I take more pictures???) it looked great.  Which is strange, because matte polishes or adding a matte topcoat usually show all of the hidden flaws.  Oh well, whatever works 🙂

Static Age over a Jade Holographic Teal – LOOOOOOVE the way this manicure turned out!  Two coats of the base color, one coat of Static Age, and one coat of Seche.   It was just that easy!  Static Age has it’s own unique qualities and not “just another black and white glitter” that most indie brands have a version of.  Yes, it has black and white various sized glitters and strands – but there was some holographic strands, squares and hex glitters – and if you know me….if it’s got holo…it makes me happy 🙂
