I’ve come to the realization that I haven’t tried enough indie polishes. It’s like a whole other world that I need to explore more. Nail polish created by extreme nail polish enthusiasts? YES, please! So I recently ordered some indies from Brijits Digits Boutique. She doesn’t franken a lot of over-the-top glitterbombs like a lot of other indie makers. Of course she has some lovely glitters, but right now Brijit’s Digits offers a lot of hand-blended cremes, shimmers, holographics and even thermals. I bought this thermal polish from her shop too and I can’t wait to try it! I’ve also been using her affordable cuticle oil for a few months now and I just love the scent and it’s little roller-ball applicator!
One of the polishes I ordered is a nice deep dark shade that’s perfect for autumn. It’s called Witching Hour and it’s an eggplant aubergine color with a touch of scattered holo added in. Witching Hour is so seductive! To bring out it’s sex appeal I had the bright idea of adding some painted studs. I transformed some gold studs from Claire’s Boutique by painting them with a couple coats of Witching Hour and then I left them to dry. I shoulda done a better job at this, because I see some of the gold poking through on the corners of the studs- oopsy! It still looks hot though! 🙂
Shown here is two coats of Witching Hour. I applied the painted studs on top while my second coat was still tacky. Then I slathered on some seche vite topcoat to smooth down the studs. I did the best I could with my seche topcoat- I am down to the very bottom of my bottle! How scary! My amazon order better come soon- I ordered the big mamma jamma 4 oz salon-sized bottle of seche. Once it comes in the mail I won’t be running out of seche for a long time! It will be good times. Here’s another shot of my monochromatic witchy mani…
I like how the studs look from this side view. I’m really looking forward to wearing this mani out in the real world tomorrow. Today it’s a lazy rainy sunday and I will NOT be leaving the house. Yes, I have hermit tendencies, and i like it.
I love Witching Hour. It only needed two coats and it dries fast. It’s a dark vampy shade but it actually looks good on me. Even though I love dark shades, I feel like they oftentimes make me look pale and pasty. Not this one though. It’s very flattering. It also kinda reminds me of all those holographic A Englands that I’ve been dreaming of for a while now. And even though it shipped all the way from La France… it got here real quick! Plus, now I secretly feel fancy since I’m wearing french nail polish. lol
Hopefully soon I can swatch my thermal from Brijit’s Digits. It’s getting colder here in NY and I expect some serious thermal activity since my nail bed will be much warmer than my chilly nail tips! Oh I love thermal!
‘Til next time 🙂
