Wow, it seems like forever since I've written a blog post! I was just starting to get my momentum back for blogging and then life struck again. Between house hunting, a promotion at work, and the kids getting involved with after school activities my days have turned into a whirlwind and a daze all at once. I've still been painting my nails, taking photos and writing notes but never seem to find the time to sit down a write the actual posts. I seriously have half a notebook filled up with things to share with all of you and I decided to start with the Stat-Ick-Stics collection from Parallax Polish which is available for purchase right now.
This 5 polish collection was inspired by the events in Erin's research area ( statistics and psychology) along with the general whines she has to listen to while teaching the class. What a great way to get out some frustrations right? Just make a nail polish collection based off of your stress!
"Power is the ability for our research projects to work out the way we hope them to, while Alpha and Beta are mistakes that can happen in research. These mistakes are Errors but I have also started teaching the class with a program called R, which gives you lots of errors when trying to learn. Do I have to is the most common thing I hear students say – unfortunately, the answer is always “if you want to pass”. "
This post is going to be picture heavy so I'm going to keep it short and sweet from here on out. I know most people come for the pictures anyway. All photos are shown as 2 coats plus top coat and taken in a light box.
Color: Dark shimmery purple polish that in the right lighting will show you some very sparse holographic sparkle.
Application: I had smooth even application for the most part but did notice if I tried to use a very thin coat there was slight dragging.
Finish: Dries to a sparkly matte finish.
Color: A vampy red nail polish with dark blue holographic glitter.
Application: Smooth but a little sheer on the first coat. Builds up to full opacity after 2 coats.
Finish: Dries to a matte finish with some slight texture from the glitters.
Color: Black nail polish with silver foil flecks.
Application: This beauty was a 1 coater for me that flowed seamlessly onto the nail.
Finish: Dries to a matte finish.
Do I Have To?
Color: Silver scattered holographic.
Application: Smooth even coverage with zero dragging.
Finish: Dries to a Matte finish with TONS of sparkle.
Error In Your R
Color: Shimmery deep emerald green.
Application: Smooth and even. This one was almost a 1 coater for me.
Finish: Dries to a satin finish, There are a few brushstrokes, but they almost disappear with the addition of top coat.
Overall I like this collection. It's full of nice rich deep colors perfect for the cooler temperatures. I love how the matte finish combines with the silver flecks in Power to look like a night sky full of stars. I might have to try it as a base for a galaxy manicure. And don't even get me started on that sparkle in Do I Have To?! You know me, I love a good sparkly nail polish especially one that applies so smoothly.
This collection is available for purchase right now in a variety of sizes and prices that are sure to work with anyone's budget. Just hop on over to storeenvy and check it out.
