Funky Fingers Tinsel Town ($2.00 or 3/$5.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.)

Oooooookay. This is easily one of my favorite polishes. It may not have a linear holo, but Tinsel Town is packed packed packed with holographic glittery goodness. Once applied, you seriously cannot stop staring!

I bought this from my local Five Below, whom carry a variety of other polishes I can’t find elsewhere…plus it’s cheap! This may be from their Christmas line, but I’d wear this anyday!

Funky Fingers Tinsel Town is a bright jelly emerald green with a hint of teal and holographic glitter everywhere! It took three coats to become opaque, and is a bit gritty, but two coats of Seche Vite makes it the smoothest polish on your fingernails. It dries particularly fast and is rainbow-y at absolutely every angle. Surprisingly, removal wasn’t too much of a hassle, but still a bit difficult.

If this polish isn’t a part of your collection, you NEED to get it now!

INTERLOCKING DOTS TUTORIAL!
You will need: two different colored polishes (I used Deborah Lippmann “Almost Paradise” and Sally Hansen “Pacific Blue”) & a dotting tool.
Paint your nails with Color 1.
Draw one diagonal line with Color 2; I freehanded mine, but if you’re unable to do straight lines, use tape! Making sure Color 1 is completely dry first.
Fill in the area above the diagonal with Color 2.
Take Color 1 & space dots equidistant ABOVE the diagonal line.
Fill in the gaps underneath the diagonal with dots of Color 2.
Continue to use Color 2 and place dots diagonally to the dots you made in Step 6.
Take Color 1 and repeat Step 7.
Clean up cuticles using acetone and a small brush!

the Balm Hot Ticket Counterfeit ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.)
Counterfeit is an amazing holly green creme! This is my first polish from the Balm, and I must say that it has excellent formula. This was opaque in two simple coats—has an even formula. The drying time is completely EXCELLENT! It dries so quickly it’s unbelievable—it’s super shiny too! The brush and bottle are normally shaped and very easy to control. I can’t wait to try more polishes from the Balm; this one’s proved to be a keeper~

JUNE 30 DAYS OF UNTRIEDS: DAY 4 (almost didn’t make it, lol…7 minutes until midnight)

Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Black Tie ($5.99 for 0.50 fl. oz.)

Black Tie is an amazing charcoal black with a purple/green duochrome. It really is amazing. You see purple in its entirety, green in its entirety, and flashes of both sometimes! I am in love with the entire Sally Hansen Diamond Strength line’s bottle shape. It’s got facets on the bottle itself and a fantastic handle and perfect sized brush. 

The formula of Black Tie is perfect—takes only 2-3 three coats to reach full opacity and the drying time is quite rapid. It is a teensy bit streaky, but that means nothing to me—cos the color outweighs this minor con. Honestly, a hidden gem! I believe it is also a dupe for Borghese’s Stella Notte~
