Review- Jindie Nails Candy Land Remix

Hello ladies and welcome to another Friday! Hopefully everyone has something fun and/or relaxing planned :) Today I have another review for you. I know I know, a whole week of reviews, gaahhh! Truth is, my poor hands needed a break and between that, and creating polishes to send to a few other people I needed a break! But either way I'm super excited to bring you today's polish! Jindie Nails is a very well known indie brand and the creator Jen recently did a couple restocks of her Etsy shop. Thinking I missed out, I sent a woeful tweet to Jen and she replied telling me there were still quite a few active listings. She didn't have to tell me twice, I raced over to Etsy, throwin some bows, and bought this beauty:

Candy Land Remix is a white crelly polish with large matte neon pink, yellow, green, purple, and blue hexes along with corresponding smaller neon glitters. So for this mani I started with a basecoat of Wet'n'Wild white cream, pretty standard and basic. Surprisingly enough this white cream is relatively even at one thick coat. I then painted my thumb, index, and pinkie using Color Club What a Shock! a neon green with blue shimmer from the 2009 Electro Candy collection. Two coats. I then proceeded to paint my middle and ring fingers with two coats of Candy Land Remix. Now let me tell you, this glitter is a pain in the butt, which Jen warned about in her listing. What worked best for me was dabbing a blob in the middle of my nail and then spreading it out using the brush until it was even and the glitters were evenly distributed. It was a little bit of work as the glitters had a tendency to stick to themselves and not want to go where I wanted them to. I topped everything with two coats of Sally Hansen Insta-Dry and voila! This mani screams summer and I am ready for open sunroof-music blaring-sunglass wearing-weather. Just sporting this mani makes me happy and the difficult texture was totally worth it in my opinion.

Well that's all for this review. You can catch up with Jen and find out about her restocks on Facebook, Etsy, or Twitter. According to her, the next restock should be around mid March so stay tuned!

I know you ladies are waiting for some more frankens so I will be sure not to disappoint this coming week. As always, remember to always keep it classy and creative!
