This is another Meimei's Signatures exclusive shade - Daring Digits Speicher
) When I saw this, my thought is 'shatter glass' I love the irregular flakes and also the combination of the blue holo bits. It seems so cliched to swatch them over a black, but this really shows up the complex glitter and color combination.
The base itself is clear..it is a little on the thick side. The bits are all evenly and densely packed in the bottle, so even a single coat gives you serious sparkle.
A delicate clear base polish with lots of thin gold and silver flakes in irregular size with blue iridescent flakes and blue/purple duochrome micro-shimmers.

Shown here with my fave Nails Inc leather effect black - Love how the blue bits pop and the clashing texture/ finish!
Each bottle of Daring Digits contains 16.5ml of product, and retails for S$12.50 at Meimei's Signatures. (link here!)
I hope that my swatches have been useful!
Thanks for reading!

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.
You can buy Jindie Nails polishes and more at Meimei Signatures. (link here
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!

I have another nailpolish to feature today - and be prepared for lots more nailpolish showcases in the next few entries! :)
This is Darling Diva Polish Ringer - a sheer jelly purple-ly base with shimmering bits. They appear gold and reddish in my pictures, but the color description states "A sheer blurple jelly base with copper red to green shifting shimmer" - I don't detect the green, but the shimmer is definitely coppery red.
I decided to pair it with a complimenting creamy base, OPI Funkey Donkey - and the combo reminds me of MAC Trax eyeshadow - a warm purple with golden sheen.
I love how the shimmer is subtle yet it shows up very clearly. The formula is very smooth, and one coat gives you sufficient sheen and add dimensional to a creamy base.
Darling Diva Polish retails for S$15, and they can be purchased from Mei Mei's Signatures.
Pretty or what? Love it!
Hope these swatches have been helpful!

This entry features another indie nailpolish brand, Pretty Serious - and the shade I have here is BSOD - which stands for Blue Screen of Death - thanks to goggle search hahaha - which basically means the blue screen you see when your computer is dead... I am a MAC user, so I just get a sad mac face - which I hope I would never get to see!
Anyway, let's not digress - BSOD is a deep navy blue - and it is a jelly creme finish and consistency. It also contains what looks to be like millions of tiny sparkly blue glitter bits. The formula is smooth and a little thick, which I often notice in jelly formula polishes. But it applies smoothly without any bald patches. I love how the sparkles shine through, and even the slight uneven-ness in the base color (due to the jelly finish, not the consistency) adds extra dimensional to the overall look here. It reminds me of a deep blue sea, and really pretty.
Actual color description:
All your friends will stop and stare at this beautiful blue jelly packed to bursting with blue glitter. Don't make the critical error of passing this one up!
Pretty Serious nail polishes are made in Australia, and retail for S$16 each, inclusive of normal local postage. They can be purchased from Meimei's Signatures. Click here for the link to her store!
