Painted Sabotage: The Impossible Girl

Product received for review

Whew...hey guys.  Long time, no blog, I know.  Thank you all so much for sticking with me through the silence!  I had some family commitments and wasn't in the best place mentally.  Thankfully, I've been kind of forced to snap out of it and review some samples I received this week!

Painted Sabotage The Impossible Girl features black hex glitter, silver hex glitter, and some fabulous metallic red square glitter in a medium gray crelly base.  I often find that grays make me look a bit corpse-like, but this polish did not have that effect at all!  The formula was great and dry time was fast.  It takes 2-3 coats to reach full opacity.  Shown is two somewhat thick coats with top coat.

I highly recommend checking this brand out.  I've never been disappointed, and the formula always stands out in my mind as one of the best among indie brands.

Painted Sabotage polishes cost $9.75 for 15mL and can be purchased on the brand's Etsy page.  To stay up-to-date with the latest Painted Sabotage news, Like the brand's Facebook page.

Dollish Polish: Sugar Plum Fairy

You know how they say that when it rains, it pours?  That's my life right now.  In addition to the sick family member and family stress mentioned in my previous post, I've been dealing with bronchitis, and there has been a death in the extended family.  Since I didn't have any samples that needed to be swatched, I took a break.  I'm going to try to ease back into things with some quickie posts.

Dollish Polish has started doing monthly Limited Edition polishes, and Sugar Plum Fairy is November's LE!  This polish features a pale pink crelly base filled with brightly colored circle, hexagonal, shredded,  and star glitter.  I haven't actually seen any star glitter in my bottle, but I hear that it exists.  If you're extraordinarily girly and love bright and playful polishes, this one should be right up your alley!  Formula was fine and dry time was average.  2-3 coats are needed to reach full opacity.

Sugar Plum Fairy is only available while supplies last, so if you want it, grab it now.  This polish costs $10 for 15mL and can be purchased from the Dollish Polish website.  To stay up-to-date on the latest collections and monthly LEs from Dollish Polish, Like the brand's Facebook page.
