Untried A-Z Challenge - Letter P


    It's once again time for the Untried A-Z Challenge. If you're unfamiliar with this challenge let me give you a quick breakdown. This is a challenge where you the alphabet dictates what polish or polishes you use. We go in order from A to Z and either the name of the polish or the brand needs to match up with the corresponding letter. It's a laid-back bi-weekly challenge and people are welcome to participate whenever they choose. If you'd like to know more just check out the event on my facebook page


     For my letter P polish, I went with an indie brand that is no longer in business and sadly caused quite a stir on the way out.  Now I don't want to get into all of that in my blog post, and I don't really like how things were handled I do love the polish that I purchased and wanted to wear it. With that said, let's take a look at Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice from Frenzy Polish.

Chocolate brown holographic nail polish

     Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice was released in 2016 as part of a fall collection. I previously reviewed another polish from this collection called Falling Leaves Ⅱ. I guess you could say I have a thing for fall colors. The warm comforting tones of green, rusty reds, oranges, yellows and browns. The changing leaves of the season are soothing and almost therapeutic to me. That's why I fell in love with the dark brown holographic nail polish the minute I saw it.

     The formula is completely smooth and the application flawless. There was a slight VNL after the first thin coat but the polish builds up nicely to full opacity after two. Shown here is two coats plus glossy top coat. 

    I used Bluebird Lacquer Top Notch top coat for the first time and have to say that I'm impressed. It dries very quickly, I was able to lightly touch my nail after 3 minutes and dries to a glass-like glossy finish. I received this top coat as a gift with my last purchase from Bluebird but already know I will be purchasing another bottle when I start to run low. 


     Pumpkin Spice & Everything nice is a gorgeous polish that I'm glad I picked up when I could. It's a great fall color that appears to have a strong scattered holographic look to it but then you get it in the right lighting and you get a little glimpse of that coveted linear holographic arch.  I'd say it has the best of both worlds when it comes to holographic nail polish. 

     What type of holo do you prefer, linear or scattered? Are you a fan of fall colors like I am? Let me know in the comments and be sure to check out the other polishes for letter P week of the Untried A-Z Challenge. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
