Noodles Nail Polish Swatches & Reviews: Don't Waste Your Wishes, Resting Grinch Face, and Seeing is Believing

Hi guys! It was a quiet week on the blog last week, but things should be ramping up again soon. I've got the Zoya Spring Collection finished as well as a bunch of March's PPU shades to show you very soon. My father-in-law was in town for a few days, other than that, I've just been busy working. I hope all is well in your neck of the woods. As you guys know, I've been blogging for Noodles Nail Polish for a bit over a year. The colors I have to share with you tonight are ones that I purchased myself during their most recent sale. I used a peel-off basecoat for all of the polishes to make removal easier since all of these are glitter heavy. If you want to keep the polish on longer, I recommend using the foil method. To smooth out the glitters, try to use a thicker topcoat, or 2 coats of a thinner one. With that said, shall we get a closer look at these?

Polish Pickup Mythology January 2019: Painted Polish Luna

Painted Polish Luna (2 coats)

Hi guys! I'm back with a Polish Pickup shade that I purchased back in January. Unfortunately this is no longer available, but you should definitely check out a few other Painted Polish flakie crellies like Squash and Sleet or Foliage and Flannel which are in the same vein. I really need to add these 2 to my collection because I'm a flakie addict. This is going to be short and sweet because you cant get this. You never know, Lexi may bring this back when they have Polish Pickup Rewind (which I'm assuming they'll do again since it was so popular). 

Luna is inspired by the Roman Moon Goddess and is a medium crelly base with tons of cobalt blue color-shifting flakes. Obviously the star of the show are those contrasting flakes. It applied like a dream in 2 coats, and I had no issues with the flakes sticking up on the nail at all. I wish I had this to show you before the Jan. PPU because I would have told you to instantly buy this polish. It had a cap of 400 bottles, and it sold out before the weekend was up. Yes, it was that popular. Head on over to the Painted Polish webpageInstagram, or Facebook pages for more information.

MLF Lacquer Lovers Collection February 2019 Swatches and Reviews

*press samples*

Hi guys! I meant to have this post up yesterday, but I'm afraid I've caught a bug. I'm still hopeful that I'm not "sick" and it's just my body fighting off infection. That said, there's no rest for the wicked, so onward and upward. Tonight I am so excited to show you the debut collection from the new brand, MLF Lacquer. The shop just opened last night, so these are currently available for purchase. MLF Lacquer stands for Much Love Forever and was inspired by a love for colors, creativity, and nail polish. The initials are also a tribute to Jessica's daughter, Makayla, as they are her initials. I'm sad to report that she passed away from kidney cancer in 2017. What a touching tribute to her daughter. šŸ˜¢Here is some more information about Jessica and the company:

"My name is Jessica Bumgardner. I currently work full-time as a nurse, but I am putting a lot of time and energy into launching my new business. I have a passion for helping others, especially in times of trouble. I also love helping others find the beauty in themselves, and, of course, nail polish. I will strive to release a quality product with reasonable prices and innovative colors. My goal is always to provide top notch customer service. MLF Lacquer is a brand new small business ran by one person."

The debut collection, The Lovers Collection, is a 4-piece set with names inspired by the Taylor Swift song, "You Are in Love." Each polish is vegan and 5-Free, and retails for $9 each, or $35 for the set. These pictures are hot off the presses, so let's get a closer look.
