I recently went to Singapore and couldn’t find much polish- until some local readers commented and directed me to a few places- thanks very much for directing me to some glitter!
I found a trove of sparkly wonders at a shop called Skin Food. I was able to confirm beforehand that this brand is cruelty-free, so I went ahead and bought a bunch of polishes there. It appears to be a Korean company and the focus is on skincare. The shop was all blonde wood and white cabinets and jars of alfalfa-looking stuff and wheat-germ facial masks. But…there was a wagon of super-sparkly polish! It didn’t seem to quite fit in with the organic theme but I never complain when sparkliness is involved.
None of the polishes seem to have names. The Nail Vita polishes were $5.80 SGD which I think is around $4 USD and the Pedicure Sparkles were $7.80SGD or about $5.50 US. All of them applied really well, but the Pedicure Sparkles were the best- two thin coats that dried quickly, then totally opaque. But do shake them up really well first.
So here’s the pics! All are two coats with one coat of Seche though they didn’t really need it.
Pretty cranberry sparkle, totally smooth with tiny shimmer particles. The picture doesn’t do it justice!
Dark indigo shimmer with larger indigo and warm purple shimmer. More sparkly in the bottle but still a nice color with some depth to it, especially in the light.
I don’t know why my fingers look so long and compressed in this photo. But anwyay, this is a nice warm rose gold. Just not on me.
This is one of my favorite golds. It’s a lot more yellow-toned than some of the warmer “holiday” golds I’ve seen- it looks like the gold foil that Cadbury bars used to be wrapped in, melted. Very shiny and festive, though I’m not quite in the holiday spirit yet, as you can probably tell by my last post. I’ve heard “Last Christmas” approximately 200 times already, including one instance where the music was piped into the ladies room at a department store (wouldn’t want to miss a note while we were doing our business!) and two J-Pop versions of “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus,” which is another holiday (non) favorite of mine.
