Happy Monday lovelies! Hopefully you guys all had a wonderful weekend. I’m not entirely sure where mine went, because I feel like I accomplished absolutely nothing. But moving on. It’s time for another Indie Showoff post, and this one will be showing off my final two Love, Angeline polishes. I’m planning on putting together a little Instagram poll to figure out which indie I should feature next, so make sure you’re following me (@polishthosenail) if you want a say. Anyways, let’s enjoy these polishes first!

Name: Love One Another

Description: Robin egg blue with small, silver flakies and little holo glitters.

Release Information: Unsure

Number of Coats: Three coats.

Topcoat: One coat of Rica’s Glossy Glam.

Formula: This polish was surprisingly thick and it didn’t like to self-level. I recommend not trying to manipulate it too much once it’s on the nail.

Dry Time: About ten to fifteen minutes for each layer.

Staining: None.

Wear Time: N/A (only worn long enough to swatch.)

My thoughts: I really, really, really, REALLY want to love this polish. This shade of blue is so pretty, and the small little flakies add such a delicate touch of sparkle. But man, this was difficult to apply. Each coat applied unevenly, and I had to rely on topcoat to make it look this smooth. I still have to try adding thinner, but yeah, the formula definitely bummed me out.

Name: 31 In Torrance

Description: Sea foam teal holo with golden shimmer and small, holo flakes.

Release Information: Unsure.

Number of Coats: Three coats.

Topcoat: One coat of Rica’s Glossy Glam.

Formula: Applies smoothly and evenly. Most would be good with only applying two coats.

Dry Time: About ten minutes for each layer.

Staining: None.

Wear Time: N/A (only worn long enough to swatch.)

My thoughts: Now, this polish has a great formula! My only complaint would be that it’s a little sheer, and required three coats to cover my nail line. But, that’s really not a big deal. I love how the gold shimmer contrasts against the cooler base!

Okay, quick question. Does anyone have any idea why a matte topcoat would create white, spots/streaks while drying on the nail? I know some topcoats leave behind white dots, but this one like has some weird reaction and turns white on the nail. It was really bad on my index finger, but I managed to rub most of it off with some acetone. Anyways, this nail art was inspired by this pattern created by Elsa Boch!

  1. Start by applying three coats of Love One Another.
  2. Add a layer of Glossy Glam over top.
  3. Once that’s dry, using acrylic paint and a detail brush add on the pattern.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a coat of Adesse’s Ultra Suede Matte Top Coat.

Please excuse the quality of these last photos. My SD card for my camera broke on me, so I had to use my phone for these. Luckily Amazon Prime has my back, so we’ll be back in business in a couple of days. But yeah, I have another vegetable inspired nail art look for you! This time around it was an onion (more specifically this slide by Dave Bullock!)

Here are some bottle macros:

Like I’ve mentioned before, Love, Angeline has recently closed down her shop so neither of these are available for purchase. Never forget about the power of a good destash/blog sale though! I’ve picked up plenty of polishes that had been discontinued long before I even got into the indie game.  It looks like she still has grab bags available on her site, so check these links out if you’re interested in making one last Love, Angeline purchase:
