Today I have one of the new (and NOW FOR SALE) artisan polishes from The Nail Junkie, in a shade called BEE. FYI IT IS PERFECT FOR PITTSBURGH STEELERS FANS! GO BLACK AND GOLD!
If you have read my previous posts on The Nail Junkie artisan polish (Violet matte, Daffodil matte, Rose matte, their toppers, and Grape jelly), you know that these may look one way in the bottle and show much different (in a good way!) on the nail.
The new shade, Bee, in the bottle looks like a solid bright butter yellow cream with small black hexagonal matte glitter bits... until you look closer and see all the bright yellow shimmer and realize THIS IS NO CREAM! I only needed 2 coats, but I am a creature of habit and brush on that 3rd coat anyway. The yellow was brighter on the nail than in the bottle, but only a bit more. With the polish she always includes a stack of felt squares for easy polish removal, and an extra goodie... this one was a WONDERFUL lanolin and natural oil based cuticle balm, she calls Cutie Balm (cute indeed!), that I will be reviewing and showing off in a future post! keep a look out :)
This would also be a pretty good stamping polish if you can get the black glitter out of the way.
That black glitter is another good thing I liked about this shade, in each of my pictures below... the 1st 2nd and then 3rd layers applied... all had the same amount of glitter on the nail... a REALLY good thing when it comes to polish like this. I cannot stand when you are trying to apply more coats of polish and it only ends up swiping off all the glitter with each brush stroke, so this polish NOT doing that made me SUPER happy! The formulas with the polish are always consistently good and easy to work with. I did have problems with it not drying properly, however I found that was due to a humidity spike where I live.
I cannot wait to put this on Violet's little toes for Pittsburgh Steelers football nights!
