Three Indie Glitters

I've written a previous post about D & R Apothecary nail polish, but they've since changed their business a little and the new name of their glitter polish line is called Hit Polish. They also used to sell bath & body products like soap and lip balm but they've had more success with polish so that's what they're concentrating on now.

This is a mini polish I got from their new line called Antique Rose. It's a perfect fall glitter, in shades of rose gold, copper, green, and gold glitter pieces in large and small hexes and squares. I topped Rescue Beauty Lounge's Moulin Rouge with two coats of Antique Rose. I'm head over heels with this combo. It's MUCH better in person, but this is the best I could do to show you it's beauty.

Here is a polish from back when they were just D & R Apothecary, called Blaze. It is packed full of orange mini hexes, small orange hex, large red hex and golden yellow bars. I actually really hate this photo because it makes the layering combo I used look STUPID. This is American Apparel Manhattan Beach with two coats of Blaze. Honestly I looked at this in the sun and hated it. I thought it needed a totally different type of base color for layering. It looks like the damn plague or something.

However when I turned to go inside and saw the combo in the shade and swooned. Manhattan Beach looks much less bright when not in direct sunlight, making the pair look much more compatible. I love this now, although when I wear it I need to remember not to be in the sun too much ;) The bar glitter really taco'd on this unfortunately.

This one is called Patina. Which is one of my favorite names. I also happen to adore the MAC eyeshadow called Patina. So naturally I figured I would love this polish. Copper glitters, brown glitters and aqua/turquoise glitters all in fine, small, medium and large sizes. I layered it over OPI Berlin There, Done That from the Germany collection. LOVE this.

You can get Hit Polishes from their website or on their Etsy store She is having a sale right now, 20% off mini sized polishes. If you've been on the fence about trying them, now would be a good time :)
