Recently I've been on the hunt for a black glitter top coat. I couldn't find what I wanted in any store, so I decided to try the indie polish route. I had never bought an indie polish before, but had seen some gorgeous glitter polishes on other blogs. I headed over to Etsy, but couldn't find what I was looking for (I'm not entirely sure what I want, but I'll know it when I see it!). However, I did stumble across this fun polish from Nail Pattern Boldness. It wasn't what I was searching for, but it was too unique to pass up. Ninja Vs. Pirate is flakes of black and silver glitter in a clear base.
Isn't it pretty??
I decided to layer it over Caitlin by Zoya, with an accent nail of Essie's Lilacism. I did have to do a bit of dabbing to get even glitter coverage, but it was not a pain to work with. There were a few pieces of glitter that refused to lay flat, but after two coats of Seche Vite you could barely tell. I'm really happy with the results! I even got a compliment from one of the women working at Ulta today. I can certainly see myself using this polish a lot. It's an easy way to add some excitement to your nails with little effort.
I was curious to see how it would look over other, brighter, colors. So here is Ninja Vs. Pirate layered over:
Sally Hansen Sun Kissed
Sally Hansen Pacific Blue
Essie Bachelorette Bash
Essie Mojito Madness
I'll be wearing the orange combo near Halloween, for sure!
Here it is with a coat of Sephora's Matte Top Coat. It doesn't make a huge difference, but is fun none the less!
So what do you think of my first indie polish purchase??
