Noodles Nail Polish 2020 Anniversary Trio Swatches and Reviews

*press samples*

Hi guys! I know I've been a bit quiet here the past few weeks, but for good reason - I'm the blogger of the month for the Polish Gamers box! It works similar to the Polish Pickup setup, but I'll describe that later in the week. Just be prepared for a MASSIVE post. Can you believe Noodles Nail Polish has been around for 7 (!!!) years? That's really something to be proud of, Natalie! To celebrate this milestone, a trio of polishes will be available this Friday, June 12th at 5 PM EST in the Noodles Nail Polish store. The set features 2 flake jellies with contrasting shimmer and a full-coverage micro glitter polish. Each polish will retail for $10 and will be restocked if anything sells out. Ok, less talking and more pictures of pretty polishes! 

Best Techniques for Smoothing Out and Removing Glitter

If you read my posts about Noodles, you'll see this little blurb posted each time. And if you can believe it, I do update this as I find new products I think would be helpful. Noodles Nail Polish are very glitter-heavy polishes, so I thought I'd mention the best techniques to remove glitter. Since they all contain glitter, they will dry with some texture, so I recommend at least 1 coat of topcoat. If you are especially sensitive to feeling your polish, make sure your topcoat is a thick one, or apply a second coat of a thinner one. I recently purchased a topcoat from Dollish Polish that is called Glitter Wrangler and can be used to handle pesky glitter. For the most glitter-dense polishes, I used a coat of Gelous followed by a coat of Glitter Wrangler and had completely smooth finishes. The other product I purchased from Polish Pickup a few months ago was from Esmaltes da Kelly called the Smooth and Shine Duo which had 2 toppers that you put over glitter to smooth it all out. She recently brought it back in a slightly different form a couple months ago, so keep your eyes peeled for for it.

I also use peel-off basecoats to make removal a breeze. I recommend UNT Ready for Take Off, or Hit the Bottle Keepin' it Peel as they both work well (I am not affiliated with either site or brand...I'm just sharing the love). The UNT works better for my body chemistry as the Hit the Bottle will sometimes pop off during the day. If you want your polish to last a little longer, I completely understand. In that case, the foil method will work best for you when you're ready for a change. Clips like these are cheap and great for keeping the cotton balls in place. I hope this helps, and feel free to email me or leave a comment with any questions you may have. 

Noodles Nail Polish 7 Years (3 coats)

What can I say about 7 Years besides you need it immediately? This polish is so full of bling and bright neon glitters. I can honestly say I don't have anything like it in my vast collection of polishes. It's a holo-based shade with neon yellow, green, orange, pink, purple, and blue glitters and silver/gold holo glitters. At first I wasn't sure if it was a topper or a full-coverage polish and after one coat I immediately knew it was full-coverage. I still used 3 coats for my photos, but there's no visible nail line with it. You can also apply this like a normal polish with no dabbing necessary. It does dry with lots of texture as this is pure glitter goodness, so look above for a list of ways to smooth it all out. Love. It. 

Noodles Nail Polish Shell Yeah! (3 coats)

You know what else I love? CONTRASTING SHIMMER. Shell Yeah! is a neon pink jelly base with purple/blue/green shifting shimmer, blue/green shifting flakes, and silver holo glitter/flakes. It was hard trying to capture the shimmer in this one, but it's quite evident in real life. This one and Stay Salty both dried with less texture than I expected, but you'll still need a coat of topcoat to smooth it out. I know pink is often seen as a bit pedestrian in the indie world, but it's consistently a favorite of mine. 

Noodles Nail Polish Stay Salty (3 coats)

There's that contrasting shimmer! It really comes out to play in Stay Salty which is a turquoise blue jelly base with silver holo glitters/flakes, red/green/gold color shifting shimmer, and orange/copper shifting flakes. This one and Shell Yeah! are slightly on the sheer side, purposefully, to allow the shimmer and flakes to really shine through. Three thin coats will provide full opacity for them though. I'd have to say this is my second favorite of the trio. 

Guys, it's like Natalie made a trio for me. I'm a bit biased, so I think you should treat yourself to all three, but if you need to practice some restraint, I'd have to say my favorites are 7 Years and Stay Salty. But that pink in Shell Yeah! It needs to go on my toes STAT. If you are unable to purchase right now, Natalie usually has her polishes stick around for a few months so you likely have some extra time if you need it. Please be safe and stay at home. ­čĺĽYou can find out more about Noodles Nail Polish on their websiteInstagram pageFacebook page, and Facebook Fan Group.
