Hello again! I’m pushing through more posts and I have so much to share! I’m doing a lot better with balancing my time due to all the changes around here, but of course now that I’m learning to balance more efficiently, I feel like I’m coming down with a cold.
BUT on the bright side I have several beauties to share in case I do get the sniffles, so I just have to type and can hold off swatching until I feel better. We’ll see how it goes. Tonight I have a long overdue post to share – and it’s for Color4Nails! I was sent 5 shades, so I’ll be sharing Bow Polish Ashes to Ashes, Avalanche, Delete Repeat, Flower Bomb & Playing With Fire!
I’m not super familiar with Bow Polish, but I have tried a few of their goods in the past and have been pleased with them.
Let’s jump right into this post, and as always – you can use the code CSant10 at checkout on the Color4Nails site to receive 10% off your entire order.
Ashes to Ashes
Ashes To Ashes is my top pick from the 5 I received. This is a medium blue tinged grey crelly base with silver holographic microflakes as well as rainbow iridescent flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Avalanche is another favorite and it resembles Unicorn Pee polish toppers – but I don’t know if it’s UP pigment or a similar one. I’m guessing similar because the particles don’t seem as fine as with UP. Either way – it’s a gorgeous topper.
Avalanche is a clear base packed with red to orange to green to gold shifting shimmer and silver holographic microflakes. I used 1 coat of Avalanche over a black creme base.
Delete, Repeat is similar to Ashes to Ashes, but the base is a medium dusty olive green. It contains a mix of red to orange to gold iridescent flakes and silver holographic microflakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Flower Bomb is a soft candy pink with blue shimmer and a sprinkling of holographic microglitters. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
The blue shimmer is more apparent in person.
Playing With Fire
Playing With Fire took a couple photographic attempts for me and is partly to blame for the post hold up. For whatever reason my camera went on strike and would not focus on the flakes.
Playing With Fire is a sheer raspberry jelly base packed with magenta to green to gold metallic flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Bow Polish Ashes to Ashes, Avalanche, Delete Repeat, Flower Bomb & Playing With Fire Overview
I actually really enjoyed all 5 of these shades, but the elements in Ashes to Ashes and Delete, Repeat are among my favorites. Of course Avalanche with it’s shiftiness hit me in my soft spot as well! All 5 applied really nicely – even Playing With Fire. I was mildly surprised since a lot of full on flake polishes sometimes become bumpy or pile up, but this one didn’t.
I also got the chance to try out Mitty Rainbow Of Brushes pack and am using the Mitty Clean Pro Angular brush for cleanup and it’s incredible. I’m also playing with some very amateur nail art (you know how I am with nail art…) and so far so good – so I’ll have a full review of that. If you are more into nail art and love good angled or flat clean up brushes, the Rainbow of Brushes pack has 1 of each plus 7 other brushes and a carrying pouch to go with them. The full pack is $75.00, and with my discount (CSant10) it comes to $67.50
Price: $12.00 Each
