The other day I saw Sminkan’s post on Smitten Polish Lovely Lilacs, and that convinced me that I had to put this on my nails right away! Luckily, Lovely Lilacs was already in my untrieds drawer, or else I would have had to make another order with Noelie.
Noelie describes Lovely Lilacs as “a plethora of sizes and shades of purple and pink and holo glitter suspended in a deep purple jelly base”. And I just have to say wow, it’s super gorgeous! Everyone knows I’m a sucker for anything purple and pink, but even if you’re not hung up on it like me, you have to see this polish in person! At least click these pictures to see how pretty it is in close-up.
The formula is so good, very easy to apply and the glitters are evenly suspended and very willing to come out of the bottle. I used three coats of Lovely Lilacs on its own for this mani, and it’s nice and opaque. It’s not gritty either, I used one coat of Gelous and one coat of Seche Vite over this, and it’s still glassy smooth even after two days of wear.
Lately there have been so many sales, group orders and new collections and indie brands popping up, so I’ve been hauling left and right! Now, the packages are starting to trickle in, and it’s like Christmas and my birthday every day when I check my mailbox. I thought I’d show you a little bottle pic spam of the stuff I’ve recieved this week.
Cult Nails had a sale recently, so I took the opportunity to make my very first order with them. I got Captivated, Enticing and Princess.
Noelie just released a new Smitten Polish collection called Confection, inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I got Candy Kisses and Confection from the new collection, Winter Is Coming from the Game of Thrones inspired Ice and Fire set and also Pink Lemonade.
Kristi from Happy Hands also has a new collection, this one’s inspired by Arrested Development, and it’s called the “I’ve Made A Huge Mistake!” collection. I’ve only ever seen a few episodes of AD, so I don’t get all the references, but the polishes are just so gorgeous! I got Motherboy and I Just Blue Myself.
Another new indie brand for me is Oopsie Daisies made by Cathryn of hot.pink.aurora. She has made a collection inspired by the MMO game Planetside 2. I have no idea what the game is about at all, but the polishes are super gorgeous! I bought Soldier of Fashion and Cosmic Ruins.
And finally, we have three gorgeous holos from the Italian brand Layla. Emerald Divine, Ultra Violet and Misty Blush. I was lucky enough to get in on a forum group order for these, so thanks for all your help, Jess!
Now my only problem is trying to choose which awesome polish to wear first! Which one would you pick?

You know I love indie polishes, and it’s even better when fellow bloggers and nail polish enthusiasts break out and start their own lines! Noelie of Noelie’s Nails just launched her brand Smitten Polish, and her first collection is called Nommy Noms. It consists of four dessert inspired polishes in milky bases, and since I’m crazy about milky glitters at the moment, I just had to get two of them immediately.
I couldn’t wait to try them out, and my first choice was the blue based, blue glittered Blueberry Crumble. These polishes really live up to the dessert theme, they’re so cute and look so yummy that I just want to eat them! (Don’t drink nail polish, though, it’s really bad for you!)
The formula is very good, just a tad on the thick side, but easy to apply. The glitters distribute on the nails easily and evenly, and I used three coats for full, even coverage. The best thing is that it’s not bumpy, so you only need a thick coat of Seche Vite to make it smooth.
You can buy Smitten Polish at Etsy, and the price is $9 a bottle.
