Sincerely love the new Garden of Eden Spring shades from Sincerely Polish!

Shellflower

I love Springtime and thank you Karen Jo at Sincerely Polish for creating these gorgeous floral polishes in the Garden of Eden collection! I started out sampling beautiful minty green Shellflower. It’s got a faint smattering of iridescent microglitter, enough for that extra shine, but not so much as to change the creamy formula.

Don't you love this minty green?

I tried to set the camera a bit out of focus on the macro shots to show you how pretty the iridescent glitters shine. Just the right amount.

The first coat goes on a bit thin, but by the second coat, and I used a thicker layer the second time around, fills in nicely. The same method was used on the Primrose shown in this blog. I’ll be posting a followup on the other three shades from this collection as soon as I locate my props! The other three will be Sweet Pea, Petunia and Bluestar.

Sigh, why is it I have such a hard time removing each polish when I have to go on to the next swatch?
Look at that! Shining like the sun.

They are so pretty, wait! I can paint my toes and leave them on a good long while. No way am I going to show you my feet. Take my word on that! 😉

Born Pretty Water Decals…sooo easy!

Born Pretty Water Decals...sooo easy!

I have to say these decals took me by surprise! I’ve used plenty of nail stickers before but this is my first experience using water transfer decals. The first one you see here was placed over a delicate blush pink. I decided to have extra fun with it by adding a few pink dots. After applying a base coat and letting dry, just cut out the decal, soak in tepid water for about 15-20 seconds, slide off with tweezers, pat dry and place on your nail. I followed up with a thin coat of Seche Vite, but you could use any quick dry top coat.

Here's the pretty rose pattern decals on white!

I opted to use a lovely orchid shade as my base coat for the decal shown above. Although it’s pretty, I think a paler shade would show off how lovely these decals really are. This one was a bit trickier for me to work with. I think because they were slightly larger and I have smallish nail beds. But a little trimming and coaxing makes it doable. I also added a bit of dotting to this set and finished with a top coat.

Here I placed the floral decals over a white base. Just lovely!

The decals are more flexible with this one, so if you let the excess overlap, just press down and file off the free edge of your nail. Easy!
