Flash Your Tips: Freida Love - Indie Review (A Perfect Polish!)

As you can tell by the title, I couldn't even wait until the post to profess my love for this polish.  As you know, the fabulous Rachel at Flash Your Tips sent me 4 polishes from the All My Sisters collection to show you, and I hope you're loving them like I am.

To refresh your memory, they are:

  • Cupid Stunt
  • Daisy Chain
  • Freida Love
  • Hellena Handbasket

Today's polish, Freida Love, has black hexes and squares, green squares, and magenta squares in a clear base.  The pics show two coats of Freida over the various bases.

Let me show you my favorite pic of the whole swatch fest first, then we will get to the rest of the goodness.  Silly me learned that macro and zoom work reaaaaally well together! Ha! Only took me a year.  Technology is NOT my strongpoint, people, this is why I teach history.

Anyway, looook:

I love it!  It almost looks 3-D but lays perfectly flat with one layer of clear coat. I was using NYC's today since I was swatching, but I do prefer Seche for the quickness.  Seriously, does anything dry faster than Seche?

Enough talking!  Time to first see Freida Love over white, so you can see how faceted and busy and beautiful this polish is before we add color.  The white is Confetti Wedding White, a Walgreens find that I def recommend and will repurchase.

Next is Freida over Nerd Alert Screech from Wet and Wild's Saved By The Bell Collection.

 These neons came out in Summer 2012 and were immediately hard to find. Lucky for me, my pal Sam at A Girl Obsessed found a full set for me at a steal of a price. I like all of them - pigment, formula, etc, except the yellow one, Pin Me Slater or whatever it's called. Did anyone else experience streakiness with that one? Nerd Alert Screech is a great lime neon though!
