Nail Mail Sads from Ninja Polish… :(
I was really looking forward to this nail mail! Really, really, looking forward to it. I am looking for a holographic that’s as awesome as the Layla holographic I have (one post here), but preferably a bit more affordable, and there were two neat colours on Ninja Polish that I was really excited about.
They arrived! Yay! Rivka Vanessa was so super pretty – cats eye greenish gold – double yay! Up Colors Azul Arco Iris – however – was broken. Smashed right off at the neck. So not yay. Unyay. Unyay to the max.
So, what do I do? There was about 1ml of polish left in the bottom, still not dried up because of the plastic wrapping, so I grabbed the brush from my almost empty top coat (after I had dumped all the remnant top coat in the hopes of salvaging ANY of the polish – but noooo) and painted my nails. That didnt really work either, I managed to get three patchy coats on the fingers of my left hand, but only 2 half coats on the right. 😦 Still, I tried.
And here are the sad photos I managed to get on a sad nail mail day.
I tried to contact Ninja Polish through their website, but the contact form wouldn’t accept ANY of the prove-you’re-not-a-spam-computer codes, even though I got them all right. After half an hour of that frustration, I sent a reply to the email I got when they shipped it – haven’t heard anything back yet though. I do know someone in the website is taking a holiday, and I was so happy they got this to me as fast as they did (in about a week, pretty good going), but they really didn’t package it well enough. The bags a bubble bag, but the two polishes were just wrapped in another – thin- bubble bag and taped. Cardboard is needed, or packaging fill, something. I am sad I wasted so much money on a polish, and although I am happy with the Rivka, and the two polishes I recieved prior, I don’t know if I’ll go back to Ninja Polish. Especially as I haven’t heard from them. 😦
But.. enough whinging, and back to the swatches I managed to get!
Whole hand photo..
I found some sunshine this morning! And a sticker for my index nail, as I dinged it while making dinner.
This has a top coat on, and three patchy coats. I can’t really comment on application as I was digging it out with a L’Oreal brush from a broken jar, frantically trying to scrape enough out of the bottom. However… I think I’ve been spoiled by the Layla polishes. I’m just going to bite the bullet and get those or the GOSH ones, they are just so much MORE holographic. This was really pretty though. Rest In Pieces, pretty blue holo polish.
