Cuttin' Edge Polish - Let it Go
Last week I shared Frost Bite with you from Cuttin' Edge Polish. I thought I'd kick this week off with another polish from the Frozen trio, Let it Go. As I mentioned before this trio was released last year and is no longer available. Sadly I never got around to using these polishes last year, and that's why I'm sharing them with you now. And part of my year long no buy is to get through all or umm, most of my untried polishes. I have a LOT of untrieds so it might take me longer than a year to get through them.
Let it Go is a medium blue linear holo with just the right amount of iciness to it. With the subtle holo effect this polish also reminds me of denim. Like that perfect pair of jeans that has been worn in just right and are really comfortable.
While not quite as sheer as Frost Bite, it's still on the sheer side for nail polish. Shown here is 2 coats plus top coat. In my photos you can still see some VNL but it was not visible with the naked eye.
Application was smooth and easy with even coverage for each coat. To be honest I was expecting the first coat to be much sheerer than it was, which is always a nice surprise in my book. The holographic effect is not super strong but it is there. Giving off a subtle rainbow effect as the light hits it at different angles.
I ended up using Let it Go as the base for some nail art in the Christmas nail art challenge I did. You can see how it looks in this Icy blue and white manicure. I figured the color and the name where a perfect fit for the theme.
Now for that year long no buy I mentioned above. Its been 2 months and I've been good about not buying anything. But all you other nail bloggers out there are making me test my will power with all your gorgeous swatches and nail art. Seriously you are a bunch of talented ladies and it's been quite the challenge not giving into the temptation, but I enjoy it also. Mad props to all of you and keep up the great work! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
This is a really pretty polish. Sad it's no longer available, but hey ho.ReplyDelete
Good luck on the no-buy. I feel with you, I had almost a year off as well, and know how hard it can be.
What a nice color!ReplyDelete
This is totally like worn denim…great shade!ReplyDelete
I am on a no buy as well but only because my untried are overflowing! I need to start rotating them back into the mix! This is like denim like Jessica said!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful blue! Great pics :)ReplyDelete
What a pretty blue! I'm a sucker for blues! I wish you so much luck for the no buy...I can only imagine how it'll test your willpower! You're doing an awesome job though! Think of how much money you'll save! You should set up a swap with a fellow blogger or two so you can try different polishes to help lessen the pain :pReplyDelete
That holo... it's so lovely! I love the shade of blue too!ReplyDelete
That is such a lovely color!! Good luck with your no buy too. I can't imagine actually declaring a no buy but luckily (or not luckily haha), me rarely having anytime to actually paint my nails has helped me cut down on how much I actually buy. I'm horrible about working through my untrieds though haha!ReplyDelete
Let It Go is such a pretty blue!!! I love your holo shot of it!!! Congratulations on success with your no-buy so far!! You can do it!! I know how hard it is with temptation!ReplyDelete
Such a pretty blue shade, and sometimes subtle holo is even better as it doesn't overpower the color itself :).ReplyDelete
This is super pretty! It totally reminds me of Frozen before I even saw the name of it lol.ReplyDelete
Such a gorgeous colour!ReplyDelete
Beautiful blue and it looks beautiful on you!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I just saw an entire collection by Glam polish that I really really want and Im hoping that the boyfriend picks up on my not so subtle hints. hehehReplyDelete
I wish I had worn it sooner, but now is better than never right?ReplyDelete
I'm pretty sure 80% of my collection is untired. It was getting out of control and I felt more like a polish collector than a blogger. It's crazy how fast it happened too.ReplyDelete
I'm actually an admin for a sample swapping group, but I haven't done any swaps yet. I'm having too hard of a time deciding what I'm willing to part with. My polishing hoarding is a bit out of control at the moment.ReplyDelete
I like that it;s a softer blue but still a true blue color.ReplyDelete
Lately I've had a hard time finding the time to paint my nails too. I actually wore this back in December but am just getting around to blogging it now. My lack of funds, purchasing a new car and wanting to save money for a house have helped spur the no buy. Hopefully the big ticket items will help me keep my will power.ReplyDelete
Thank you. That holo was playing hide and seek with my camera for a bit. Im really glad I was able to capture it in at least 1 decent shot.ReplyDelete
I agree. This was the blue looks soft but still a true blue color. You just get those flashes of sparkle from time to time.ReplyDelete
Haha I love it when the names completely fit the color.ReplyDelete
Awe thank you!ReplyDelete
Pretty! Lovely swatches, I think this'll be a good shade for ocean-y looks in the summer too!ReplyDelete
Thank you. I can see it working out great for an ocean look manicure. That's a great idea =)ReplyDelete
