This entry features another Jindie Nails
polish - and it's Barbie's Nightmare - a Meimei's Signatures exclusive shade created for this Halloween season. If you remember my review of Jindie Nails Barbie's Dreaming - they are both the same, the same creamy white base, with a whole host of star, moon, square and circle glitter bits. But Barbie's Nightmare takes it a notch darker and quirkier with the black and red glitter shapes (Barbie's Dreaming has cutesy neon & pastel glitter shapes instead).
The application take a little getting used to, the polish is very densely packed with the glitter shapes so picking them up and placing them on your nails is not a problem. The only thing I have to work with is to make sure that the creamy white base color doesn't streak as I am trying to place the glitter shapes in some kind of a neat way around the nailbed.
I suggest applying a smooth first coat, don't worry about the placement of the glitter shapes yet. When you apply the second coat, then you try to 'place' the shapes strategically around your nails. If you think you need a third coat (unlikely) you really just want to only place the glitter shapes like just plonk them on bald areas..don't swipe the brush up and down your nail bed already. Finish off with a thick coat of topcoat.
I attempted twice, hence you might see different 'designs' - and it does look slightly lumpy.. but like I said, when it comes to these glitter polishes, practice is key, and somehow after a few times you will get the hang of the application and find a way which works the best.

Here we have a super cute glitter polish by Jindie Nails, in an exclusive shade made for Meimei Signatures (link here!). It's called Barbie is Dreaming.
A baby pink crelly base with neon pink and neon green glitters, purple and lavender stars, tiny white stars, pink and gold dots, pink sparkles, and various sizes of white hexes.
I did apply this over a thin coat of a nude polish. The glitter bits are really cool, and I love the combination of the soft and neon pieces. They are a little hard to fish out, but totally worth that little extra bit of effort.
I painted a thin layer of OPI Bare it in Trafaglar Square. It is a little see-thru..but I didn't want to interfere with the crelly finish of the actual polish.

Shown here is a sample bottle for my review purposes. It comes in the usual 15ml size bottle, and retails for S$16 each.
Hope these swatches are helpful, and thanks for reading!

This entry features an indie nail polish brand, hand crafted and imported from USA. You can purchase Jindie Nails polishes from Meimei Signatures (click here!). The shade I have here is called Live out Loud - and I love the white based glitter polish, having seen similar ones from many girls I follow on Instagram. The formula on this is very smooth and creamy - it is rather opaque in two coats, but if you want it very white, I suggest painting a thin coat of white followed by two coats of the polish itself. However, I do like the milky creamy look of just two coats on its own.
Love the color combination of the glitter bits, they apply and distribute very evenly, I didn't have to work too much to 'arrange' and make sure that the glitters are evenly spread out on the nails. And the white base did not cover the colors of the glitter bits, which is a good thing. It is such a playful and cute combination, and definitely something different. I think there are a couple of other white based glitter polishes from Jindie Nails.
FYI - The full sized bottles contain the usual 15ml of product, and retail for S$15 (inclusive normal shipping) - the tiny bottle you see here is a sample sent to me for review.
