Guest Post from Boom Shaka Lacquer

Hey hey! It's been a crazy week for me but I've got another guest post to wrap it up. Karel from Boom Shaka Lacquer and I started blogging about the same time last year. We talked a lot in polish groups and she is a lovely lady, I'm so happy to have her on the blog today!

So there are actually TWO giveaways for our blogiversaries going on that you need to check out:
Boom Shaka Lacquer One Year Blogiversary Celebration
Shelby Lou Nails First Blogiversary Giveaway

Okay, let's see what Karel has for us today!

Hi!  My name is Karel (or Relly) and I am the blogger and head nail polish addict over at Boom Shaka Lacquer.  I was excited when Shelby asked if I wanted to do a guest post to help her celebrate her Blogaversary month.  It just so happens that it’s MY Blogaversary month too because she and I started about the same time!  

I decided I would share a fun Jindie-cure with ya’ll since it’s a brand that both Shelby and I adore!  Without further ado I give you a cute skittlette (something that Shelby inspires me with, her gorgeous skittlettes!) featuring Jindie Nails Fantastical and Blue & Green’s Love Child.

Polishes used:   Tip Top - Toughen Up Basecoat; Jindie Nails - Fantastical and Blue & Green’s Love Child; Gothic Gala Lacquers - Smooth Me Over; Digital Nails - Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That Topcoat


For this skittlette I put three thin coats of Fantastical on my fore, middle, and ring fingers. Fantastical is a bright coral crelly based polish filled with holographic, metallic, and satin glitters in white and teal.  I’m particularly fond of the large teal holographic dots and the white satin stars!  Then I put ONE coat of Blue & Green’s Love Child on my pinkie and thumb. Blue & Green’s Love Child is a gorgeous teal holographic polish.  Like all Jindie holos they aren’t what I would call linear but they are extremely unique and rich looking.  After that I used some YouPolish chevron decals as masks I created the chevrons on my ring finger.

Let’s talk about how awesome the formula is on Fantastical!  Jindie does crelly-based glitter polishes like no one’s business.  I decided the first time I wore this that I would love this type of polish forever.  Now it did take me a little while to become proficient at applying them but with a little patience and a couple of tricks anyone can do it!  I start with a thin layer as a base for color, I don’t worry about glitter at this point, if some gets there cool if not no worries I’m going to get glitter later!   Then I apply a second thin coat taking care to make sure that any glitters that are deposited are where I want them, if they aren’t I might nudge them a bit with my brush.  Sometimes I can get away with two coats this is a lighter colored crelly so to smooth things out I did another thin coat and much like the first coat I’m not so worried about getting a ton of glitter on this one I just want to even everything out.  Voila that’s all there is to it!  I top it off with a nice thick topcoat or in my case I went with a glitter smoothing topcoat and a quick dry for ease and it’s smooth as glass and just gorgeous!

You can get Jindie Nails polishes from several fine stockists but the easiest way I’ve found is straight from her website. You can also follow Jindie on Facebook and Instagram. So, hey if you liked this you can also keep up with me on Facebook and Instagram as well!  

Thank you for allowing me to take over your blog for a brief moment Shelby and Happy Blogiversary!

Karel got it right, we both love Jindie! This is a brilliant combination and totally makes me want Fantastical so I can make this mani myself. Thanks for helping me celebrate and happy blogiversary to you, too, girl!
