Beauty on the Beach Duo with Polished for Days and Nvr Enuff Polish Swatches and Reviews

Hi guys! I can't believe it's Wednesday already! Don't forget that the giveaway for the Frenzy Polish custom color called Emerald of Chivor ends this Friday so enter today. There's be a great response to the segment, and I have even more surprises in store. Check back on Friday for another Nibs & Nails + giveaway.

Tonight I have a duo that was released as a pre-order for only 24 hours back at the end of July. Unfortunately you can't get these anymore, but I figured I'd show them to you guys anyway. Nvr Enuff Polish was the guest maker and I've been wanting to try them for ages. The duo was called Beauty on the Beach and featured a glitter and a holo flake polish. Without further ado, let's get to the swatches and reviews!

Polished For Days Positive Mind Collection Swatches and Review: Numinous

Polished For Days Numinous (2 coats, diffused LED light)

Polished For Days Numinous (2 coats, direct LED light to show holo effect)

Hi guys! I hope you had a great weekend because I know I sure did! I saw AC/DC in concert (with Axl Rose as the lead singer!!) and it was awesome. Like I mentioned last week, I went with my brother who is a huge Guns N' Roses fan. 

Tonight I have a color from the brand Polished For Days called Numinous. Let me tell you a little secret about myself: my vocabulary isn't the greatest. My husband has an expansive vocabulary (he has a few degrees in the humanities), and it makes me feel like I should go through a few verbal sections of the GRE again. I had no idea what the word "numinous" meant and had to look it up after the polish arrived (apparently it means "having a strong religious or spiritual quality"). But get this, my husband didn't even know! Hooray, it wasn't just me not knowing! The more you know. Anyway, Numinous the polish has silver and gold holographic microglitter and loads of ultrachrome flakies. How gorgeous is this? I don't normally gravitate towards gold polishes, but this one just called out to me in the store. I was worried the polish would be too sheer, but I found that it fully covered in just 2 coats. The formula was a little thick in a good way.

Numinous is a little on the expensive side since it retails for $11, but they have sales sporadically. You can find more information about Polished For Days on their websiteInstagramTwitter, and Facebook pages, respectively.

Nibs & Nails Presents Frenzy Polish in Emerald of Chivor (Inspired by J Herbin Ink) | Swatches and Giveaway

*press samples*

Hi guys! Tonight is a bittersweet post because Frenzy Polish announced last week that she is closing her doors. I've been a huge fan of Rachel and her brand, so I am super bummed about it. Currently her store has been restocked and most polishes are still in stock, but the turnaround time is ~3 weeks. If you have ever wanted to try them, get purchasing now! If not, you still have 2 chances to win this week's Nibs & Nails polish inspired by the J Herbin ink called Emerald of Chivor. If you were still under the impression that fountain pen inks were boring, I think this ink will quickly change your mind. Information and giveaway widget can be found at the end of this post.

As I say every week, please head over to my husband's ink blog called Inkdependence for more swatches of the ink and his thoughts on how well it works in fountain pens.
