Four new beauties from Glitter Lambs!

Jamie, the owner/creator/operator of the indie nail polish (particularly glitter topper polishes) is never at rest it seems! She sent me four more glitters to share with you…my glitter-lovin’ followers! Without further ado, let’s take a look.

First up is a fabulously flexible and seriously loaded shade shifter. Wow, that was a mouthful! “I Found An Oyster Pearl” is a pretty white polish that when worn alone (ave. 2 coats) glows with various subtle shades. I tried a few scenarios here to give you an example of just how flexible she is!

I Found an Oyster Pearl is perfect alone, (middle finger); over black the gold really dominates, (pointer finger); over pink Zoya Eden, (ring finger); and over Glitter Lambs own Blue Buttercream Icing, (pinky finger).

And a single shade, reddish orange, that in the sun or shade looks like your nails are on fire!

I just had to throw this pic in. I wore this mani for a full week because I hated to take it off. My nails looked like they were on fire wearing one coat of I Found an Oyster Pearl over China Glaze Red-Y to Rave.

I Found An Oyster Pearl is described as, "I Found An Oyster Pearl This is a pearl nail polish with flashes of Blue, Green and Gold.  You can wear it on it's own with three coats for full coverage or you can do 1 coat over another color to cause an amazing effect to your polish!"

Next is a breathtaking patriotic blue glitter and boy is “Bluebird In My Car” densely packed!

Bluebird In My Car just looks patriotic blue to me! With having just celebrated Memorial day and July 4th only a month away, you'll want to have this beauty on hand. The red here is Zoya Sooki and the white is White Out by Chloe & Bella.

Bluebird in My Car is described as, "Bluebird In My Car is a clear base filled with lots of gorgeous tiny navy blue glitter! All very tiny glitter and nothing big and chunky. *This is a glitter topper and IS NOT meant to be a full coverage glitter nail polish. 1-3 coats over another nail will make those nails really SPARKLE!!!!!!!"

What is summertime without a picnic? Here’s the cutest “Ant Picnic” I’ve every seen!

Ant Picnic is a densely filled micro glitter party in the park! Here she is in one light coat over Zoya Tiana.

Ant Picnic is described as, "Ant Picnic Glitter Topper Nail Polish is a clear base filled with Neon Yellow Hex, Neon Blue Hex, Hot Pink Neon Hex, Green Neon Hex and Holographic Silver hex. These glitters are all very very tiny. Nothing big and chunky in this. Perfect for gradients too! In person the bottle of glitter polish may look kind of dark and murky looking but when applied to the nail it comes alive.  Looks best if applied over white nail polish. 1 coat will be saturated on your nail! This is a glitter topper and is meant to be applied over another color. However you can achieve full glitter coverage with this one if you do 2-3 coats. "

Yes, piggies do take baths but in Jamie’s mind, they take bubble baths! Here is “Piggy Bubble Bath“!

Piggy Bubble Bath is a delicate glitter topper. Here over Zoya Lillian.

Single’s Awareness Day Collection by Virago Varnish, a sweet trio!

I was so excited to be able to review these beautiful polishes from Virago Varnish. From the time I saw the first teasers I was in awe. Glitters are kryptonite to me anyway, but when they are this smooth in tinted jelly bases, oh my! All three of these are seriously stunning, very smooth and easy to apply, and remove! You’ll reach full opacity in 2-3 coats. I found full opacity in two! Here they are!

Here is how my sweet little trio arrived!

Virago Varnish Single's Awareness Day collection came to me in a cute little bag!

And the prettiest pink, I Need Some Space

I Need Some Space is described as, "Pink base nail polish with various pink, purple, and silver holographic micro-glitters. Opacity: Fully opaque in approximately 2-3 coats." I used two coats with Gelous for topcoat. On the accent nail I created an embree effect using all three shades!

This is my first experience with Virago and I have to tell you I am seriously impressed. Well done Adrienne! There are a ton of indies out there. Lots of competition and I’ve been so fortunate to end up with great companies. Congratulations to Virago for producing such great polishes!

I have a funny story to share with you. (well, it wasn’t at the time). When I was in high school, there were two years, back to back that I happened to have a boyfriend during the month of February. Both of those jerks broke up with me the very week of Valentine’s Day! Sob, woe was me. What kind of tightwad does that? LOL Anyway, true story. What is your Single’s Awareness story? I would love to hear!
