Makeup Wars favorite new brand: Polish Me Silly plus more

Favorite indie polishes: Nine Zero, Polish Me Silly, Lilypad Lacquer

Favorite indie polishes: Nine Zero, Polish Me Silly, Lilypad Lacquer

Makeup Wars this week will be quite diverse since the participants have a wide open range of items to choose from with Favorite New Brand. It took me absolutely no time to decide on what to write about since I’m crazy about nail polish. My preference is to buy Indie brands of polish. While I love so many brands, both indie and mainstream, my heart really belongs to the Indie brands. By buying these you are supporting other women who love polish and put their heart and soul into designing colors and polishes that will make your nails sing.

One such brand is POLISH ME SILLY *, created by a mother/daughter team and sold on Etsy.

All of our polishes are custom- blended and have loose cosmetic-grade glitters, micas and colorants added to them. They are 3 free~~NO Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP)~~NO Formaldehyde and NO Toluene.

Paradise is aptly named. I’m in paradise wearing this polish. It’s called a Mega Multichrome polish which is a great description. It’s like wearing a rainbow of colors on my fingers. In different lights, it turns different colors. It is often a beautiful teal but then you’ll look and see some navy peeking out on one side. Move your hand and you’ll see a deep enticing cool purple.

Just look at the shifts this one polish has. I’ve been wearing it for 5 days now and it looks like new. People have either grabbed my hand to look at it more closely or come up to tell me how gorgeous it is. I used three coats for this manicure because my nails are long right now and I wanted no visible nail line.

Dynamite is the second polish that Polish Me Silly sent and I can’t wait to wear it. This is also a Mega Multichrome so it’s like a party on your nails. Dynamite is a gorgeous reddish-magenta, burnt orange, yellowish-golden & green color shift (description from Polish Me Silly). Just look at this picture from Very Emily to see why it needs to be on your list a.s.a.p.

When I was swatching these on my nail wheel I could easily see that Dynamite was a two coat polish with Paradise needing that third coat. At $8.50 each you will attract the kind of attention you want to attract.

There are two other brands that I’ve been loving lately too. Nine Zero Lacquer and Lilypad Lacquer are two brands I’ve been buying.

I discovered Nine Zero Lacquer on Kellie Gonzo’s blog when she showed the February 2016 Polish of the Month and I fell in love with it. At the time I also bought Santa’s Suit which is a stunning cherry red jelly with gold microglitter in it. This is still available for $10 but the polish of the month is only available for one month. I have the April one ordered and will share that when it arrives. I’m a little biased about Nine Zero since it’s made in Michigan and the shipping prices are so reasonable.

I love shades that have holographic glitter within. I don’t wear true glitter because of how difficult it is to take off. But polishes like the ones being shown today are easy to remove.

The third brand that I’m thrilled to share is Lilypad Lacquer. I discovered this brand on Cosmetic Sanctuary. It’s sold on Color4Nails and Lisa has a code for 10% off: CSant10 that I used when I bought my polishes.

Do you have a favorite Indie brand of polish? Have you ever tried the brands I’ve shown? I’m sure my love for these will continue to grow as will my collection. — Marcia
