NOTW: Wicked Polish Hematoma & Essie Rock The Boat
I'm back with about a million NOTW (basically my manicures of the past weeks) posts so be prepared for that :D. I'll have a few other posts mixed in as well, but mainly it'll be a big slideshow of what I've been wearing on my nails for the last few months.
We'll start with the oldest mani I have in my photo library, and it's this which features Essie's Rock The Boat, which is the light blue and the Wicked Polish color in Hematoma.
Hematoma is part of Wicked Polish's Pestilence collection, which is where Pox and Gangrene (two of my favorite neon glitters) come from. It's a white creme-jelly base with neon purple and blue glitters. It layers really well, and isn't goopy or difficult to deal with. Here I've layered it twice over a white base.
Essie's Rock The Boat is a light periwinkle blue with a slight shimmer to it. It's really quite similar to Bikini So Teeny, which I don't have, but when comparing side by side in the bottle they looked basically the same.
As a base I had OPI's Nail Envy and I used Deborah Lippman's Gel Lab top coat. This manicure lasted 3 days before I removed it, but I saw no signs of wear on any of my nails.
Wicked Polish is available on their website as well as on Harlow & Co. However, the maker of Wicked Polish, Rylee, is currently in the middle of moving and updated today (8/4/13) that after they completely move in and build her polish room, she'll start making polishes again. So, patience my friends! The wait will be totally worth it!
Essie is easily available at all drugstores.
