Hi everyone!!! Indie Expo Canada 2017 is less than 3 days away and what better way to celebrate than with some swatches of the Girly Bits Exclusive and Limited Edition polishes?? Let’s get right into it!!!
The Red Rocket – Indie Expo Exclusive
First we have the exclusive Indie Expo polish. This is The Red Rocket, a beautiful metallic red with an orange to pink shift. This is two coats plus top coat:
It was inspired by the historic Toronto streetcars:
This is one of those polishes that truly glows from within! This polish may be available on the official Indie Expo Canada 2017 site after the event.
Come on, you knew I was going to art over it 🙂
Lost in the PATH – Indie Expo Limited Edition
Lost in the PATH is one of two LE shades. It’s a deep washed-out blurple with a strong gold shimmer and silver holo flakies. This is 2 coats plus top coat:
Lost in the PATH is loosely inspired by the underground shopping walkway in Toronto. If you’re not familiar with the PATH….well trust me when I say this polish is aptly named!
Yeah the picture above pretty much sums that up!!!
And stamped with some super Canadian maple leafs!!!
Sugar Beach – Indie Expo Limited Edition
The second Limited Edition polish is Sugar Beach. Sugar Beach is a sparkling holographic with a strong pink to gold shimmer, pink microglitter, and pink-purple-blue UCC flakes. 2 coats plus top coat:
This polish is super unique. There is a lot going on but it’s not overwhelming or too busy. It’s a perfectly done polish in my opinion! And when you see the inspiration picture you’ll probably like it even more:
First of all, I want to be there. Second of all, Sugar Beach is an urban beach park. You read that right!
You’re probably noticing a theme with the nail art today.
And make sure to follow me on Instagram @thedotcouture or add me on my brand spanking new Snapchat (thedotcouture) because as you probably gathered from that graphic up there, I’m crazy lucky to have been invited as official press! I will be covering the event real time (or as real time as I can!) on my social media outlets so if you can’t attend this is the next best thing!! If you are attending come up and say hi to me! I look forward to chatting with everyone, meeting other bloggers, interviewing makers, and oogling all the gorgeous products that will be there!!!
Hey all!!!! Today I have swatches of 4 beautiful polishes from new-to-me brand Madam Glam. I’ve known of Madam Glam for a good long while (they are a NYC-based brand that is 5-free, vegan, and cruelty-free), but have not had the opportunity to try them for myself. Check out the swatches and my thoughts after the jump!
All of my swatches were stamped over Sinful Colours Black on Black and OPI Alpine Snow, and were topped with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top. I used Bornprettystore Plate BPL-024 and a clear silicone stamper.
Beautifully opaque pastel pink:
A true pastel blue, reminiscent of one of my favourite flowers:
A bright minty green pastel – I suddenly really want ice cream…
As you can see, these pastels are vibrant over white yet SUPER opaque over black, which is just so hard to do!! These polishes stamped like an absolute dream, I didn’t have to fiddle around with different stampers or plates, nor did I have to adjust my stamping and scraping techniques at all. And the best part is they are 5-free, and hand-poured with love!!
The Spring 2017 Pastels are available for pre-order May 5th – May 12th, with a 2 week turnaround time prior to shipment.
Shipping to both Canada and the US:
Full size: $9 USD / 15 ml bottle
$70 USD for the full 8-piece set

Hello all! Today I have a gorgeous polish from indie polish maker Sweet & Sour Lacquer!! Sweet & Sour Lacquer is a 5-free, cruelty-free, hand-mixed polish brand and they do a Polish of the Month (POTM) series where they release a unique Limited Edition polish every month. This is March 2017, it’s a gorgeous peachy-coral pink with holographic and gold shimmer running through it! Let’s take a look shall we? And stay tuned for a bonus swatch at the end!!
Hi everybody! I have a crazy exciting blog post today. I was lucky enough to get to play with a bunch of beautiful of pretties from Moonflower Polish, a brand new indie offering 5-free stamping polishes!
Halloween (and Autumn in general) is my favourite time of the year. It’s also the time for my favourite kind of nail polishes – HALLOWEEN POLISHES!!!! Make no mistake, these polishes are not limited to wear strictly during the haunting season. I indulge in these awesomely spooky polishes year round. From the innovative glitter/base combos to the imaginative (and often punny) Halloween or Autumnal names, these polishes will put you in the mood for pumpkin spice lattes and jack-o-lantern carving in no time!!!
Hi everyone!!! Today I have an exciting and perfectly-themed October post for you – a swatch and review of 3 of the Limited Edition Coven collection from Australian Indie polish maker Glam Polish!!!! Each polish is inspired by a famous witch antagonist. Perfect for the haunting season that is upon us don’t you think? Let’s take a look!!!!
Zelena is a fabulously witchy green jelly polish with silver holographic flakies. I’m a huge Once Upon a Time fan and this polish truly captures the persona who inspired it!!!! Beautiful formula, fully opaque in just two coats (plus top coat).
Some spooky witch-themed nail art, and matted with a matte top coat: (because I always like to see how a polish looks matted!)
This is a deep berry/burgundy jelly polish with silver holographic flakies. This is a stunning vampy polish (just like the inspiration’s red lips) – my favourite type of polish to wear!!! It has that ‘glows from within’ quality for sure. This is two easy coats plus top coat.
Nancy Downs is a deep blue/purple (often referred to as blurple) jelly polish with silver holographic flakes. Much like the witch it’s named for, this polish is complex! It’s deep and moody and then bam!!! That sparkle!!! I couldn’t stop staring at my nails. Two coats plus top coat!!
And more Halloween stamping plus matte top coat:
And then I did a Halloween-inspired look with all three:
And with a matte top coat:
This is a beautiful collection and I love the thought that went into it. The polishes were easy to apply, dried quickly, and removal was easy peasy. I got so many compliments when I was wearing them! I love how spooky and Halloween-y they are, yet these are wearable shades no matter what the season. I will definitely be doing some Christmas-themed nail art with these in the near future, so stay tuned!
