Jamberry – Teal the Show

It’s my first snow day of the school year – so I get to sit in my jammies and paint my nails and edit photos. Let’s celebrate!

In case you missed my last post, I decided to become a Jamberry Independent Consultant. Horray!? We’ll see. At any rate, I’m having fun and I’m excited about my nails again. So that’s good news for you – I think.

Teal the Show was the very first “nail lacquer” I ordered from Jamberry. I had to see how their holo polish held up to my standards. It was a $15 Black Friday special as it normally retails for $18. Did I buy it on Black Friday? No. I paid $18 for this baby.

The application was good, I used three thin coats and bam – my nails were full of holographic sparkly wonder. Teal comes off as both scattered and linear holo – it’s not a super strong linear holo – but when it hits the right light BAM. It’s gorgeous. I wore this for an entire week – an unintentional wear test. You guys know me, I don’t wear anything long enough to wear test, but I loved this so much.

So, real talk. Is this an awesome polish? Yes. Will I wear it all the time? Yes. Is it worth $15 or $18? Ehh. My holo experience is limited to GOSH Holographic Hero & my beloved Color Club halo hues – and in my opinion, those are going to be easier on your bank account. That being said, I’ll still likely order any future holo polishes.  I’d love to get my hands on an older one, Showtime.

Side Note: I’ve been looking HARD at buying some polishes from ILNP – so if you’ve tried them, let me know! They seem to have the most beautiful holos in pretty much every color imaginable and the price is right -$10.

Teal the Show is currently sold out and not expected to be restocked, but I really wanted it to share it with you PLUS I did a wear test and I’m pretty sure I should get some sort of crown or sash or trophy for that.

Lots of pictures below! If you’d like to shop with me head on over to kjohnston.jamberry.com. I have some fun snow day specials on my facebook page! Valid today only, unless of course I get a second snow day tomorrow. XO.

Happy Monday!

Color Club – Halo-graphic

First Friday of Summer, y’all! YAAAAAAAS! Wednesday, as I was wrapping up my post and making sure the related links were what I wanted, I came to a terrible realization. I had neglected to post my third and current favorite from Color Club’s 2013 Halo Hues. Yesterday was cloudy and dreary, so today I got up a little (too) […] Continue reading →

Color Club – Revvvolution

I’m sitting here avoiding the last episode of OITNB – so I decided to pop in and say hi :). It is OFFICIALLY summer. I’m so excited! I chose Revvvolution for my last day of school fun mani, but then we had some crazy storms and most of the Richmond metro area was without power […] Continue reading →

Zoya- Bar

Happy Labor Day! I was wandering around Ulta Saturday (shocking), looking for a back to school treat for myself and I kept looking at Zoya’s Summer 2014 Magical PixieDust display.  I went back and forth between Bar and Ginni. Bar appealed to my love of the beach – it instantly reminded me of impossibly sparkly […] Continue reading →

Color Club – Cherubic

Okay! I did it…. remember last week when I said I might order another Color Club holo? Well… here she is: Cherubic. Cherubic is from the 2012 Halo Hues release. The 2012 polishes are a little softer and lighter than their bolder 2013 cousins. I am head over heels for holo polish lately. I spend […] Continue reading →

Color Club – Angel Kiss

Yes, that’s snow! The high today is 98… I decided it was time to defrost Angel Kiss and give it a proper review! The Color Club Halo Hues collection was a much anticipated Fall 2012 release. The original six piece collection was so successful that Color Club followed it up with a second Halo Hues […] Continue reading →

GOSH – Holographic Hero

Hi loves! Life has been a bit of a mixed bag lately, so I’ve been a bit MIA – for that I apologize. I miss posting, polish, and most of all comments! Hoping things will settle soon and I can get back to posting several times a week (I’m sure Alli would appreciate this too!) […] Continue reading →

China Glaze – Some Like it Haute

Good Afternoon! Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas! Today I’m showing off my choice from The China Glaze Eye Candy collection – I really was very conservative with polish shopping this holiday season – choosing one per collection (I know I did Twinkle Lights but since that was from Let it Snow it doesn’t count). […] Continue reading →

China Glaze – Gamer Glam

It’s no secret that I have become a hardcore holo lover – and I’m sad that it seems I’ve missed some of the best. I have the Milani 3D’s and Color Club’s Revvvolution, but thats the extent of my holo collection. So… I was super excited to try China Glaze’s Tronica collection! I grabbed two […] Continue reading →
