And, tonight I'm also super excited to share my first post showcasing Jindie Nails polishes. Jen from Jindie Nails is hands down amazing; she's on top of emails, FB, suggestions - all around great customer service. Jen was kind enough to send me some of her creations to review, and tonight I'm sharing the first two I swatched, which are from her Halloween collection!
First up is Zomboy. It's a blue/purple jelly with different sized blue and magenta hexes. And the best part, it's buildable on its own so you don't need a base color!
As you can see, this blue is in your face!! It's super bright and eyecatching, I loved that about it. For my mani, I used 3 coats of Zomboy over NO undies. I did use the white glue base coat for easy removal.
This polish is stunning. When the light hits it, and it really shows off the magenta/fuschia glitters, it shows off how unique it is! The formula was great. The base went on smoothly, and dried with a squishy, juicy look to it. None of the glitters clumped or needed fished out.
And a couple more pics for good measure :]
Next up, I have Frankenstein Spit. This was one of the first polishes I mentioned liking to Jen, since it was the one that really caught my eye on her site. It's got tiny matte hexes in purple, black and neon green. Plus, who wouldn't love that name, haha!
Isn't this exactly what you'd imagine Frankenstein's spit would look like?? :]
Anyway, first, I wasn't sure exactly how opaque this would get, and I thought I might like to wear it alone. It does have a cool look on its own, but I don't think I prefer it that way. Here's a peek at Frankenstein Spit with no base color underneath.
And a macro shot of my thumb nail.
I think it looks great, but something was missing. SO, I decided to try it out over OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, with an accent of Pure Ice Hot Tamale, and BAM! Beautiful things happened.
I absolutely LOVE this combination. My Boyfriend Scales Walls already has that sort of gray green tint to it, so it looks perfect for Halloween. I liked that none of the colors of glitter in Frankenstein Spit get lost over these colors. For these photos, I used 2 coats of Frankenstein Spit and got GREAT coverage. I could have gotten away with 1, but I tend to like more coverage. I had zero issues with this glitter; application was smooth and easy.

And one in the sun, so you can see how the colors really pop out in the light!!
All in all, I have to say, my first experience with Jindie Nails was definitely a positive one. I loved both colors, she's got a kickass Halloween selection, no issues with application, and great customer service. Oh, and did I mention that her full size polishes retail for only $7.75 each? Yeah, there's that too.
I'll be back with more Jindies later in the week, but if you simply can't wait, do yourself a favor and check out her shop or her Facebook page for yourself! You can thank me later ;]
