Hi everyone! Today I am excited to share with you four of the six shades from the Jindie Nails Winter Chic Collection to share with you! This collection has been out for a little while from Jen at Jindie Nails. I believe at this time, the Jindie Nails etsy shop is in vacation mode, but should reopen tonight! See the Jindie Nails etsy shop for more information!
All of the swatches in this post were done with base coat and Gelous top coat. Gelous is a thick top coat that does not require UV curing. While these swatches show one coat of Gelous, over time, a second coat may be needed to create a nice, smooth surface!
First up, we have Jindie Nails Dream In Color. Jen describes this one as "same size small matte hex in neon blue, neon yellow, neon green, barbie pink, white, and black in a clear base." It could be built up to opacity most likely, but I decided to layer it over black so that you can really see those neon hues pop! Love it! Layering this over anything would definitely spice it up. You'd probably need at least three coats to become opaque. This is one coat of Dream In Color layered over Milani Black Swift with a coat of Gelous top coat.
Jindie Nails Honey Blue Blue is phenomenal! I simply adore this because the color is great and the name is a hilarious reference to one of TLC's highest quality programs! Haha! Jen describes this baby as "medium blue crelly with royal blue and emerald green holo hex and bright blue hex in several sizes." The blue and green glitters together really make this polish feel unique to me! This is three coats on its own with a coat of Gelous, so you can see it builds up quite nicely! The formula is super easy to work with and the glitter just slides on the nail without much effort at all.
Next up is Jindie Nails Battle Royale, a "deep blue jelly with color shifting shimmer that shifts form violet to teal to pink with periwinkle, deep purple, teal, magenta, mauve, lavender matte and metallic glitters plus turquoise, light pink, hot pink rare, round/dot glitters." Phew! What a mouth full, but it makes for an amazing glitter bomb! It's unique, complex, and gorgeous! The shimmer in the jelly base is really gorgeous, and helps set off all of the glitter! This is just two coats with Gelous. Again, easy application!
Finally, we have Jindie Nails Burrrberry! This one has gained a bit of hype in the polish world, and it's not hard to see why! Burrrberry is described as "blueberry, raspberry, strawberry, wine, magenta, and navy holographic and metallic glitters in a white crelly base." This is a great glitter combination, and somehow, I am still not sick of white creme/jelly hybrid polishes! Usually, I would layer a polish like this over a white polish, but I decided to build this one up on its own; this is four coats of Burrrberry plus Gelous top coat. If you let each coat dry completely before applying the next, the four coats won't feel thick or clumpy. The application was nice and easy, just sort of sheer.
I really like all of these shades, and it's really difficult to pick a favorite! I am pleased with the formulas on these, and they built up to opacity quite nicely! The other two shades in the Winter Chic Collection are Jindie Nails Strawberry Cupcake and Jindie Nails Barbies Have More Fun.
