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.

My Favorite (Inexpensive) White Polish

Hi all!

Today I have a bit of a “filler” post for you, because I have an awesome nail art design to show you tomorrow! (it’s not quite finished yet though, I just got too tired to keep going, lol). Today I have for you Sinful Colors “Snow Me White”, my favorite white polish of the moment! I like how it gives excellent coverage in just one coat (!!!) and isn’t as streaky as some of the others I have tried. It’s still on the thick side, but it’s not unmanageable. I realize brands like OPI or China Glaze or Zoya might have better formulas than the $1.99 Sinful Colors, but at a price under $2, I’m willing to deal with slight imperfections. These pictures below are indoors, and are just one coat, no top coat, with Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Nail Color in “Flawless” as a base.

Sorry for the messy cuticles, I was in a bit of a rush.

What do you think of “Snow me White”? What’s your favorite white polish?
