Building my nail polish collection one bottle at a time…

Stripers as Nail Polish?!

On my last post I said I will swatch Butter London Dodgy Barnett and AllThatGlitter Spottie Dottie Dark and Light and review them. I did swatch them on my nails, but didn’t get a chance to take photos or write an entry about them yet, I’m sorry. I will try to do that soon.

About a week ago I received my nail polish + L.A. Colors stripers order. Yesterday I was playing around, and I saw how pretty the glitters in a few stripers look. So yes, I decided to paint them as nail polish on my nails. I mean, we can right? Stripers are technically nail polish, just the brush is different. Right right? Or am I wrong?

Here is how they turned out:

Here I have painted two coats of NA945 Purple/Blue Glitter on my ring, pointy and thumb finger, and NA938 Orchid Glitter on my pinky and middle finger. All are painted over 1-2 coats of China Glaze Grape Pop, with a layer of Essie Good to Go topcoat.

Personally I loved how they turned out! And purple is my favorite color as well. They were super sparkly and fun!

Here are shots of the brush. I have to say I was impressed with how easy they applied. I have to say though, that not every brush is perfect. I’ve had some stripers with loose strands. But overall, they are very nice and I would definitely repurchase them it they run out.

Today in the mail I also received my VISA to America!!!!!! I will be going to America from 28th December – 6th January with my mother and brother. I am super excited for this trip, and am looking forward to buying lots and lots of polishes! Super sad though that the Euro Centrale Collection and Mariah Carey Collection will be released after my trip. That means I have to pre-order/order them online. I’m really looking forward to Polka.com.

    • Hi Naomi, thank you so much for checking out my blog. I really appreciate it.
      I’ve never tried Models Own polishes before, but I just searched for photos of Models Own Disco Mix and agree with you that they both look alike.
      Have you tried using stripers as polish before? x
