Silly Saturday!

Hi everyone! I hope you're all as happy it's the weekend as I am. You know that song "Everybody's Workin' For The Weekend"? Yep, that's perfect for me. Let's all have a listen while we see some pretty swatches!


Today I have some swatches from Silly Lily who was kind enough to send me some polishes to review and I'm so impressed! First off, here's the packaging:


Now onto polishes! First I have Bunny Eggs which I did a crap job of picking out base colors for. The green is Essie Da Bush and the yellow is Nerds Lemonade from a Claire's set... I thought the bright would bring out the pastel glitters but it just looks sorta... gross. So ignore my ring finger! Bunny Eggs has light pink, lilac, and green glitters in a clear base. There's some microglitter in there too which might be iridescent or tiny pastel glitters, my eyes aren't good enough to know which one. What I can tell you is that I love this! It's very glitter packed so there were no issues getting glitter onto the nail. Very easy to grab and place as you'd like them!


Next is Winterberry which I have an alternate name for but let me show you it first and let you decide which name suits it better ;) Winterberry is a light purple base with black and purple matte glitters. I layered this over Julie G Fairy Tale to conserve the polish itself. This application was super easy and the swatch below is two coats.


Now... Alaina helped me with this visual. What do you think: Winterberry or Purple Dalmatian? I think we all know the clear answer here.


Finally, I have Feelin' Hexy which was one of the hardest decisions I ever made. Lily told me to pick three polishes and almost all three were rainbow glitters, but I knew I needed to narrow it down to one because I'm a crazy person if I order just rainbow glitters, right?! So it took a lot of assistance from Amanda and Wes but both of them unanimously chose Feelin' Hexy as their #1 pick for me and I have to listen to my advisors. Feelin' Hexy is rainbow matte hexes in a clear base, really easily applied. I layered this over OPI Mermaid's Tears.


PS This polish combination is what inspired me to say to Wes I felt I was on a roll with my base color choices... hence, I'm the ACE OF BASE. Points for you if you know that band and now have one of their hits in your head. I'm not even sorry for that... you're welcome. 

Anyway, Silly Saturday complete! Silly Lily polishes are available on Etsy for $4 minis of $7 full size, which is one of the most affordable full sized indies I've ever encountered! Lily was also very friendly. I'll definitely be ordering from her soon (probably those other two rainbow glitters...)

xoxo,
Amanda

I love that last one, Feelin' Hexy. Can't pass up a good rainbow especially a glittery one.

You're right about that! I loved that polish, but I love all rainbow polishes so I might be biased ;)
