Teal All The Things
*Press Sample - Provided for Honest Review
Hey Hey Hey! It has been forever. I know I promised that I would be back with some more blogs that I needed to write but I have been so SWAMPED! May was incredibly busy for me and my business, and then I got sick, and well then life. I'm not trying to make excuses for my lack of being around, I feel horrible that I haven't been here interacting with all of you, I just haven't been able to find that balance I am so desperately looking for. I've decided, aside from this post today, to take a bit of a hiatus, until I go to Cosmorpof. I will have lots of coverage from the indie event and I already can't wait to share it with all of you!!
Ok, so, lets talk about the Teal Box. I was so excited for Teal! I feel like the 5 of us and the 5 makers did a great job showing off the variety that can be teal! Should we get to it?
Steal the One, created by KbShimmer and XoXo Jen
Steal the One: I have two coats here with no topcoat. Application was a breeze and was fully opaque in 2 coats. This is a A Rich teal holo with gold to copper shifting UCC flakies and a super blue fiery flame! Inspired by the song Still the One by Orleans
Teal the End of Time, Created by FireCracker Lacquer and Cosmetic Sanctuary
Teal the End of Time: My photos show 3 coats with topcoat. I used 3 coats to get full opaqueness, I still saw some VNL with just the 2 coats. It could be because I have a strong nail line and this may not be the case for you. This is a Medium dark teal jelly with scattered holo and pink shimmer. This isn't fully color accurate. It leans much more blue in my photos.
Merman, Pops, MER MAN, created with Starlight on my Mind and BEGL
Merman, Pops, MERMAN: My photos show 2 coats plus topcoat. I did get a big flake chunk in my bottle and it of course landed RIGHT ON MY MIDDLE FINGER, LOL. Application was easy as per all BEGL. This is a bright teal with strong copper to gold shimmer and blue/teal/violet color shifting flakies.
Manna's Majestic Masterpiece, created with Anchor and Heart Lacquer and Manna's Manis
Manna's Majestic Masterpiece: My photos show 2 coats, no topcoat. This is my first time using this brand and the application was amazing! Went on like butter, no clean up! This is Light linear holo teal with soft blue shimmer and gold flakes.
Finally, Happy Birthday Teal Me created with Darling Diva Polish and MOI!
So, why did I name it Happy Birthday Teal Me? Because, how many times do you get to create a box exclusive polish in your birthday month AND show it off the day before your birthday... this is like ONCE IN A LIFETIME STUFF! My photos show 2 coats plus topcoat. This is like the 4th time I have had it on my nails this month. Now, the formula is a little thicker because it has a boatload of goodies in it to suspend. This is a light teal crelly base with purple to pink to blue flakes, holographic flakes and a holo microglitter... I told you it had a boatload of goodies in it.
That's all!!! What did you think of the teal box? I personally loved it!
