Today I’m going to have a polish 4-way. Get your mind out of the gutter. I obviously mean that I’m going to take one polish and show you four different ways to use it! Today, the chosen polish is Mango Bunny Polish Nope, Still Winter which is from the Limited Edition January 2016 duo. (The other half of the duo is a crelly with the same glitter mix called Spring, Is that You?) Nope, Still Winter was given to me as a press sample from the lovely Ed, co-owner of Mango Bunny Polish.

The first look that popped into my mind when I saw the purple microglitter was that it would look just spiffing over hot pink. I selected Sally Hansen Fuchsia Power which is my go-to hot pink. I’ve used half the bottle already so I think it’s time I got a backup!! This is two coats of Fuchsia Power topped with one coat of Nope, Still Winter.

At Ed’s suggestion, I’m going to try and do more macros. The only reason I haven’t done them consistently before is because I’m lazy. How’s that for some real talk? LOL.

The next design that popped into my head was glitter tips. I love glitter tips and they are a perfect step into nail art because they’re super easy to do, but look really fun. I put a blob of Nope, Still Winter on a clean makeup sponge and then dabbed it on the tips. The base polish is Dermelect Lazy Daze (which was originally sent to me as a press sample).

Woah! Two macros in one post! It’s almost like I tried or something. ;)glitter-tips-macro

The third idea that came to mind was to layer Nope, Still Winter over black. I love putting microglitters on black. Just take a look and you’ll see why. I used Zoya Willa (which was originally sent to me as a press sample). This time, I did two coats of Nope, Still Winter because I really wanted this to be super glittery.

Ok, so now I kinda see Ed’s point about Macros. I’m super in love with this picture if I don’t say so myself.

The last design I had to do with this polish was to put some stamping on top of the layering from the previous look. I love layering microglitters on black, but I even more love stamping on top of them!! I used Konad Black, a design from Cici & Sisi Plate 29, and my Born Pretty Store Clear Jelly Stamper to create this final look.

What did you think of this polish 4-way? Was this a useful post for you? I don’t know if anyone noticed, but I am experimenting with not posting new stuff on the weekends. I’ll still be on social media, there just won’t be a new post on the blog. I hope that by reducing the number of posts I do, I can increase the quality of the posts that get published. Please give me your feedback about what you think of this new strategy and this new post type. You know I always love to hear from you!
