Superficially Colorful Lacquer Breathe

I present you one of beautiful nail polishes made by wonderful Jin Jit, the owner of blog Superficially Colorful Lacquer and new, young and fresh indie nail polish maker :-) 
I already mentioned it and you could see it on my nail wheel in my post Superficially Colorful Lacquer: Nixie, Breathe, Omaticaya and a beautiful prototype :-) but today you can have a closer look :-)

"Breathe" is a nail polish that Jin made as her contribution to the beautiful idea the Box of Hope. The Lighthouse of Hope box was a special box of polishes made by 8 wonderful indie polish makers (Jin was one of them), very limited edition, and the money earned selling these boxes was donated to the I Need A Lighthouse organization that  helps children and young adults with suicide prevention, education and depression counseling.

This is how Jin describes it: "My humble contribution is Breathe, an aqua/turquoise holographic polish with a little silver and blue shimmer. Because I think it's what we all need. To take a deep breath and move on. Everything is easier when you can breathe."

Unfortunately, this beautiful nail polish is not available anymore, but you can find many other beautiful nail polishes in the shop on the Superficially Colorful website and very important thing is that Jin ships worldwide! :-)

You can follow her on her blog Superficially Colorful and at the links below to stay up-to-date on the latest news and collections! :-)

NYC Strip Me Off

I'm sure that a lot of bloggers adore glitter nail polishes and I'm sure that a lot of them also hate the fact that they are much more difficult to remove than a normal nail polish, removing glitter nail polishes sometimes could be a nightmare... :-)

Of course, there is always the "soaking system" of removing a glitter nail polish: you put the pieces of cotton pads soaked in acetone and then "wrap" the fingertips (nail+cotton pad with acetone) with aluminium foil; after 5 minutes (or a little bit more) you unwrap the whole thing and you get rid of glitter nail polish. 
Yes, surely it's easier than struggling with rubbing your poor nails with cotton pad and acetone like crazy until the glitter gets off, but maybe this system is not so "friendly" to the skin... 

So, I was happy to find the product that I would like to present to you today! It is NYC Strip Me Off base coat and it's a very good solution for glitter nail polishes problem :-) I started using some time ago and not only as a base for glitter nail polishes :-)

This base coat (esentially latex) comes in a normal bottle with a normal small brush and it applies like a normal nail polish. All you need is to apply one generous coat of NYC Strip Me Off base coat on your nails, wait until it dries (it becomes transparent when dry) and paint your nails with glitter nail polish or any other special effect nail polish of your choice. Removing your glitter nail polish manicure is very easy - you just need to peel it off together with your glitter nail polish:-)

So, this product has a lot of benefits: it's easy to use, it smoothes the imperfections of your nails and protects your nails, it's easy to peel off, provides instant removal without using acetone and it's perfect for girls who like to change their manicures every day :-) Also, it has a very "pocket-friendly" price :-)

Latex is soft, even when dry, so it could happen that your polish starts to peel off from the tip if you use your nails a lot, but this is something that I read somewhere and I can't confirm from my personal experience.. I am one of those girls who like to change their manicure every day and I haven't tested NYC Strip Me Off more than one day... :-)

NYC Strip Me Off is also an excellent product for all those girls that love stamping. I use it before stamping to protect the skin around my nails, so after stamping the cleaning up is much more easier! :-) I hate cleaning up so this product is perfect for me...! :-)

Today I would like to show you how NYC Strip Me Off works as a base for glitter nail polish and in one of my next posts I will show to you also how I use it during stamping :-)

I love it and I can highly recommend it! :-)
