MOTD- Funky Fingers “Jawbreaker”

Hi everyone!

I went college visiting today and saw Haverford, and I really liked it! I’m a big fan of small, liberal arts colleges, and definitely plan on going to one next year! For my college visit, I chose a unique, fun glitter polish very reminiscent of what Indie polish makers (such as Dollish Polish or A-England, to name just a few) because of the mix of glitters. I picked up this polish at FiveBelow in a deal- 3 nail polishes for $5! The packaging of these polishes is unique- the bottle is wider at the bottom. The bottle itself feels a little like cheap plastic as opposed to a more expensive brand like OPI or China Glaze, but the polish inside is of a much better quality. So let’s look at this glitter bomb!

Jawbreaker is a glitter explosion in a milky, off-white base (the base color leaned towards a very pale, pastel pink for me). There is all kinds of glitter in this bottle- large hex glitters in matte yellow, dark pink, teal, and lavender, medium size hex glitters in the same color (the purple is a bit darker though), and mini, red hex glitters. This polish really does remind me of a jaw breaker candy! Below is a comparison, lol.

Interestingly, my bottle of Jawbreaker looks different than other bottles. I saw a recent post by Nailmattic (link to the post is here) in which she reviewed Jawbreaker as well. Her bottle, however, seemed to have a much more opaque white base that was a pure white, and hers also had red bar glitters in it that mine did not. I wonder why there are such large  inconsistencies between batches.

Regardless, I think this polish is super fun and whimsical, and to be honest, makes me really want a jawbreaker, lol! Funky Fingers nail polish retails at FiveBelow stores, 3 for $5 or $2 each. Despite their low cost, they are a 3-Free brand.

MOTD- OPI “When Monkeys Fly!”

Hi everybody!

Today I have for you an insanely cool glitter bomb topcoat from OPI’s 2013 “Oz The Great and Powerful” collection. This collection brought 3 of OPI’s sheer “softshades” colors, as well as 3 glitter bomb topcoats, and one fantastic liquid sand texture polish. Recently, I was able to try 1 glitter, 1 softshades color, and the liquid sand. Today I just have for you my glitter of choice. So let’s get started!

When Monkeys Fly!

When Monkeys Fly!

“When Monkey’s Fly!” is a glitter polish jam packed with very large, holographic gold hexagon glitters, medium sized silver hex glitters, and tiny, silvery translucent hex glitters, all in a clear base. I love this color! It’s very reminiscent of the Love and Beauty polish, Gold, that I reviewed here, except on steroids, lol! I was first inspired to try this polish when I saw MillieMuppet wear it on her blog (found here– lot’s of great nail polish beauties to be found!). She told me that she didn’t experience any glitter curling with the large gold hex glitters like I had heard other bloggers had had trouble with. And she was 100% correct. I had no issue at all wearing this polish. The glitters stayed firmly in their place. Application was easier than expected- I only had to place the large glitters occasionally. Overall, this polish is a real showstopper by OPI, and I would highly recommend it to any fellow glitter lovers out there! Below are pictures without any topcoat, and over two coats of Essie “Bonded”.

So what do you think of this glitter-tastic topper? Hot or not? Are you a glitter lover like me? Let me know in the comments below! I’ll have the other polishes I tried from this collection for you in the near future!
