Jindie Nails Swatches & Review (Indie Polish)

Hey polish lovers!

Happy 2014! I hope you're having a great start to the New Year! It's almost hard to believe that January is half over already. As soon as Christmas passed, I was already craving spring. Why you gotta be so cold, winter?

Anyways! At the beginning of the month I received 7 beautiful polishes from Jindie Nails to swatch and review. (Along with a bottle of my favorite top coat HK girl by Glisten and Glow.)
I've already posted these swatches to my Instagram page, but I figured I'd do a proper detailed review on here. :)

1.The first polish I swatched is called *Polo* (Purple Holo).

Perfect for those of us who love purples and lavenders. It's filled with magnificent indigo & violet shimmer. Super eye catching yet delicate at the same time. This is 3 easy coats with one coat of topcoat. The application was superb. (I paired it with a rhinestone bow from The Born Pretty Store)

2.Next up is *Vixen*. 

An amazing burgundy shade loaded with holo & subtle flakey bits. It's just so unique & beautiful. Like shimmering cranberries. (It also reminds me of sparkling wine, which adds to my love for it Lol!) This is 2 coats with 1 coat of top coat. This one applied like a dream!

3.Here we have *Twerkin' For A Birkin*. 

This is 3 coats of the gorgeous green multi chrome that shimmers silver and even purple at times! I did a bit of nail art over this shade using *Snow Me White* by Sinful Colors & chevron Nail Vinyls. All topped off with 1 coat of topcoat. (Application started off quite sheer, but by the 3rd coat it was perfectly opaque!) An absolute gorgeous polish!

4. This beauty is called *Foot Prints In The Snow*. 

I mentioned this on my instagram post, but I have to say it again! I felt like princess Jasmine wearing this manicure. Such a pretty polish! It's a sky blue crelly (cream jelly) with blue, gold & maroon glitters! Here I am wearing (with topcoat)-3 coats on my index/pinky & 1 coat on my middle/ring finger. .(Tips created using a gold glitter polish by Stripe Rite.)
Application for this one was amazing! The only issue I had was trying to fish the larger maroon glitters out of the bottle. I would recommend leaving this polish upside down over night to allow the glitters to move closer to the top. Other than that, I was super impressed! (Photo taken in natural light.)

5. This one was one of my favorites. It's called *O Holo Night*

I love rich blues, so this one is special to me. Here I am wearing 3 coats with 1 coat of topcoat. (Photo taken in natural light, no sunshine) 

Along with an exceptional application, it's also filled with amazing holo. (Photo taken in direct sunlight.)
Compared to the rest of the holos in this post, this one had a bit of difficulty when being removed. It just took a little extra effort. Totally worth it though. ;)

6.Wearing *There Are No Seasons In Indie* made a bad day a little bit better. 

It's a really happy looking polish, filled with assorted neon pink, neon orange, neon purple, magenta, lilac & matte/metallic red glitter dots. I love how soft the yellow base is. Here I am wearing 4 thin coats with 2 coats of top coat. It was a breeze fishing out glitters from this polish! It made for a super quick application as dry time was great as well. It's a limited edition, so its only around for a short time. (Photo taken in natural light, no sunshine.)

7. Lastly, but not leastly, lol (not a word, I know) we have my #1 favorite. *Just Claws*

This is just 2 coats. (no topcoat.)
It's so rich and beautifully pigmented. In normal lighting it's a deep dusty rose with such amazing depth to it, but once it hits the light...oh my goodness. It knocked my socks off! It was as if rainbow prisms were dancing off of my nails. The gold shimmer is to die for. 

I can't even explain how much I love this one. Like I mentioned, I applied 2 coats, but you could honestly get away with one if you really wanted to. That blows my mind. (Photo taken in my light box, with no flash.)

Overall I am extremely satisfied with the quality of Jindie Nails. The colors are to die for, the brushes are great, and the formulas are spot on! 

I thank you if you have read this far! I hope you enjoyed the beauty that the maker Jen from Jindie Nails has created.
