Noodles Nail Polish Anniversary Collection 2023

 *press samples*



Happy Hump day, everyone! I hope things have been going well in your neck of the woods. I have to work 7 days this week, so it's going to be a long one. Oh, and my parents came into town last weekend so it was full of lots of food and bad tv (90 Day Fiancé). Tonight I've got the Anniversary Trio from Noodles Nail Polish to share with you. Can you believe Noodles has been around for a whopping 10 years?! What a milestone, and one Natalie should be proud of. This set will be available on Saturday, June 10th at 5 PM EST on the Noodles website for just $10.50 each. Shall we go ahead and get to what you came here for? Swatch time! 




Best Techniques for Smoothing Out and Removing Glitter *updated 8/11/22*

Noodles Nail Polish is all about the glitter, all the time. While we all love the bling, it can be a pain to remove. Oh, and it can be known to eat topcoat which leaves texture on the nail after it dries. 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. 

Instead of applying 2 coats of thick topcoat, several indie brands have come out with a product that you use after your last coat of polish and before your topcoat. These are generally thick and "fill in" the gaps left from the glitter. Here are several products I use and recommend (in no particular order):

1. Glitter Grabber from Glisten and Glow
2. Gelous from American Classics 
3. Smooth from Painted Phalanges (dries with a matte finish unlike the others)
5. Ooh Smooth! Glitter Smoothing Mid-coat from Dreamland Lacquer
6. Smooth and Shine Duo from Esmaltes da Kelly (available through Polish Pickup some months)

I also use peel-off basecoats to make removal a breeze. I recommend UNT Ready for Take OffHit the Bottle Keepin' it Peel, or Black Dahlia Lacquer as they all work well (I am not affiliated with any 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. It seems like the UNT has been harder to find lately, so there's always the Holo Taco one if you really need one. 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 10 Years (3 coats)

Up first we have the namesake for it all, 10 Years. It's a soft blue based jelly with red/gold/green shifting shimmer, holo flakes, fuchsia metallic glitters, silver/lavender/pink holo glitters and pink/purple iridescent glitters. This one is basically full of bling with that bright pop of fuchsia glitter hitting you in the face. I wasn't sure if this one was more of a topper, but it built up perfectly in 3 thin coats. It's definitely my top pick from the trio. It does dry with lots of texture, so I recommend that glitter smoothing topcoat if you have it. 






Noodles Nail Polish Anything is Popsicle (1 coat) over 3 coats of China Glaze Grass is Lime Greener 

Continuing on we have Anything is Popsicle which is a clear-based glitter topper with purple/red/pink/blue shifting flakes, gold/silver holo glitters, and purple/pink/periwinkle matte hexagonal glitters in various sizes. I hope that this combo with the China Glaze polish goes well together. I haven't worn a lime color in a long time, so I had to bust this one out. I found that short dabbing strokes was the best to apply this one, and it does dry with texture from all the glitter. 






Noodles Nail Polish Thanks a Melon (3 coats)

Last, but certainly not least we have Thanks a Melon which is my other favorite polish. It's a coral crelly base with gold/copper/green shifting shimmer, gold holo glitters, and various shades of pink glitter. This one practically glows with all the gold in this one. I think this one is begging to be my next pedicure color. You can get away with either 2 or 3 coats, depending on your application. I tend to use thin coats, so it was a three for me. Again, this one dries with texture, so at least double up on that topcoat. 

There you have it! My top recommendations are 10 Years and Thanks a Melon, but you can't go wrong with any of them. Just a quick reminder that this set goes live on Saturday and not like the usual Friday, so set your alarms. You can find out more about Noodles Nail Polish on their websiteInstagram pageFacebook page, and Facebook Fan Group
