Look, I finally have an Indie Friday's post up on Friday! A little late, but it's up. Amazing, right! The only downside is that both of the polishes that I'm about to show you are discontinued....sorry. I still wanted to show you guys swatches incase you come across one of these in a blog sale. So, onto the nails!
*All swatches shown with one layer of Glossy Glam
The first polish that I'm going to show you guys is Midsummer's Night! This fuchsia colored polish is filled with a bunch of different colored glitters including blue hexes and white stars and slivers. These photos are three coats of polish plus a layer of topcoat.
I actually don't really know when this polish came out or was discontinued because I picked this one up from a blog sale. Searching quickly through Google, I'm going to guess that this was released sometime in 2012? Correct me if I'm wrong. But I randomly came across this pretty in a blog sale and decided to pick it up! I love the color and the glitters are a lot of fun. I would recommend two coats of topcoat for this because some of the star glitters don't like to lay completely flat, and I know I scratched myself with them. I should also note that the glitters tend to clump together, but I really like this and think it's totally worth a little added effort!
Next up is Teal Another Tail!
This teal based polish is filled with purple shimmer, that I swear looks gold in some lights. I'm showing you guys two coats of polish with a layer of topcoat.
This polish is stunning! I love it! I actually wore this polish for almost four days. Yeah, you read that right, FOUR DAYS! And then, re-swatched this because I had a nail break and wanted to keep my photos consistent. That time I wore it for like two more days. In conclusion, this polish is awesome and if you find it in a blog sale, BUY IT. IMMEDIATELY.
Now, onto the nail art!
Floral. Because, well, floral.
These nails started with three coats of Midsummer's Night and a layer of Glossy Glam. Then using my detail brush and acrylic paint, I painted on the flowers. I place the little studs into a dab of wet topcoat and added another layer of Glossy Glam over the entire design.
Last up is some nail art done with Teal Another Tail!
I was really slacking on the creative nail art ideas for this post. Wow. Anyways, I haven't done a watermarble in a while so I decided to do one! These look a little unfinished to me but I love the colors together (:
These nails started with two coats of Teal Another Tail and a layer of Glossy Glam. I then did the watermarble using Spell Polish's Dark Horse (which I won in a giveaway, thanks to Squeaky Nails!) and OPI's Natural Nail Base Coat. Everything was sealed in with another layer of Glossy Glam.

So, usually this is the section where I tell you guys where you can buy these polishes and for how much, but sadly not today. I'm sure if you search through Storenvy or put out an "ISO" in a nail polish buying group, you might be able to find one of these. Here are some of KBShimmer's links so you can check out what is available to buy:
Thanks for reading guys!
