#ManiMonday: November 30

Now that Thanksgiving has official passed we can move passed pumpkin spice everything and get to peppermint! In preparation for this very moment, I purchased Peppermint Twist from Noodles Nail Polish a few weeks ago. I decided to pair it up with Everybody Say LOVE! from Indigo Bananas, a polish I got in the For the Love of Indies box.

Let me just start out with I am very proud of my painting skills for this manicure – I didn’t even need to use my clean-up brush! Before all of that though, I was pretty nervous about trying both of these polishes. I’m really terrible at applying crellies, for one. I always manage to put on too much and then it gets gloopy and never dries. Glitters also tend to be a pain and to distribute on the nail. I was so wrong about these polishes. Peppermint Twist applied so evenly and the glitter distribution was perfect. It was perfectly opaque in two coats, but I did three just to get a bit more glitter. As for the Indigo Bananas – it also applied really well and the glitter distribution was perfect. It looked a little redder in the bottle, but I really like it. The combination works perfect and I can’t wait to wear both of these colors more often.
