Untried Polish Challenge No.12

Prettiest! Okay, to be honest, I had no idea what I’d pick here. I have SO many duochromes and iridescents sitting in my unused box. Yes, I have an unused box… OMG, I just realized what I typed. I’m leaving it in. #truetho Lol, I’m dying. I’m way too easily amused. The box is meant to help me remember which ones I haven’t tried yet. It on the end of my bad because I don’t like having to get up to do my nails. Is that lazy?

I eventually picked A England’s Princess Tears and I’m so glad I did.


Princess Tears is a medium toned, silvered purple with a linear holo. For my swatch pictures, I did two thick coats. Though the first coat seemed a bit thin, it was easy enough to even things out with my second coat. The formula is great and easy to control. Clean up was quick and easy. Top coat is suggested with these kinds of polishes to really bring them to their full potential.


The polish speaks for itself. Look at that. It’s jaw dropping. I really did not want to take this manicure off at all, but I did it for you, reader. Dearest Reader.

I don’t have much else to say, I’m not feeling so great. My brain is working on “Hella Smard Level” which isn’t very smard at all. See ya for the next one when I shove my hands into a crematorium and sport a nice ashen gray for early spring!


Untried Polish Challenge No.10

Moving along nicely! Today is Most Esspencive Day. I had a little trouble with this one since I had just gotten a bunch of indies in the $10-$12 range and I wasn’t sure which I wanted to use for this one or for Prettiest. Spoiler, they’re all Prettiest.

I ended up choosing Ariel by Femme Fatale. Femme Fatale is one of my all time favorite indies, they make the most gorgeous polishes. If you haven’t heard of them I suggest taking a little break and googling for swatches. …but remember to come back, ples. I love you. Don’t leave me 😦

Ariel is a medium dusty blue shimmer with a purple duochrome. This one took me two thick coats, but I could see you needing three if you like thinner coats.

You can pick up some of my ridges in the photos, but they were not at all visible to the naked eye. I’ve been pleasantly surprised with how well these polishes perform for me and the colors are generally really beautiful and unique. Undoubtedly, I’ll be stocking up on more of their polishes asap.

There’s not much else to say here. We’ve got a good formula, it’s easy to use, two to three coats, and a perfect color. Next up we have Ugliest, which feels super mean to me. I don’t want to offend one of my precious beebs.

See ya later, Skankola<3
