So, the CBBs Theme and Brand of the month is Canadian Indie Love. I figured a good way for me to incorporate this into a blog post would be to do a NoTW! I choose a polish from Beyond The Nail which was started in February of 2013 by 2 sisters. The polish size is a generous 0.5 oz/15 ml, in a nice sized round bottle. The polishes are 3 free, so free from toluene, diputyl phthalate and formaldehyde. The nail polish bases are also vegan and nothing is tested on animals according to their website. They have a fairly decent FAQs page which will you give some information as well as tips on how to use some of their other products. Mojito is a part of their Summer Cocktail Line, it is described as a 'mint holographic jelly'.
I had a really hard time getting this polish to photograph and show you the holographic color. I hope you can tell just how gorgeous this color is from the pictures. I have nothing like this in my nail polish collection. The micro glitter in it really gives this polish a special oomph. I find it to show as a minty blue on my skin tone rather than a straight up mint. It is a very thin polish, it took me three coats to get the level of opacity that you see. I am hoping that this polish holds up as well as many of my others. I, of course used the same base (Sephora Formula X) and top coat (Seche Vite) as I usually use.
Last weeks NoTW, Morgan Taylor 'Postcards From Paris' held up as well as I expected it to. Which was great, just the tip wear from typing to much!
Have you tried an Indie polish before? How about any from Beyond The Nail? I am quite impressed with the service I received from this small Canadian company and if this polish holds up well I can see myself picking up a few more.
