First swatch is Lenore. It's like a metallic mint green with a slight blue undertone to it, and a healthy dose of holo blended in. In certain positions and lighting, you can see a subtle pink shimmer. I love that base color, it reminds me of the base in Deborah Lippmann's Mermaid's Dream, although I don't have the DL to compare it to. I guess I could be totally off on that one. The glitter combination in Lenore is interesting. There's black matte diamonds, red matte hearts, white matte hex glitters. I'm not exactly pleased with how the photos turned out. I've swatched this 2 times and I still can't seem to pick up the holo or the pink shimmer. Bummer. Anywho, just trust me - it's in there. At least the photos are pretty dang color accurate. I wouldn't bulls**t you about polish, it's serious business! Check out mah nubby-nubs!
Now, here's the part where I give you my honest opinions on Pinkey Nails as a new indie brand...The two I tried were awesome to work with, and I love the sheer, shimmer-holo finish. Lenore and Poppy are both gorgeous alone and I'm sure they're just as awesome used as layering polish. I love how Sara implemented holo into both of them, and I plan to try more of her pretties in the future. In fact, there's an awesome holo-glitter top coat listed on the shop appropriately named Shiny Star that is at the top of my wishlist, and I have a feeling that one will be one of her best sellers. I love layering polish, make it a holo and I'm sold! Okie dokie peeps, you know me by now (so to speak). I can't end this post without interrogating you guys. What do you think of Pinkey Nails? Did you check out her Shiny Star listing yet? Don't you friggin' love it? Comments make me happy, let me know if you're using the coupon code. I'd love to know what you decided to order ;) I want to order Shiny Star real bad but I'm poor till payday, again. Stupid bills! It's ok though, I can live vicariously though you. Anywho, I should tell ya these polishes were given to me for review. All these opinions are my own, and my opinion is Pinkey Nails is pretty darn awesome!
