Smitten Polish

Copper Canyon – Smitten Polish

Woo hoo, happy March! March is one of my favorite months, mostly because of St. Patrick’s Day. St. Patrick’s Day means a bunch of green (my favorite color), homemade soda bread and corned beef and cabbage. And spring comes in March too!

So, prepare yourself for lots of GREEN manis coming up! To ease into it, I’m sharing my last Smitten Polish with you – a sheer blue-green called ‘Copper Canyon.’

Oceanic, jellyish, with a gorgeous golden glint, Copper Canyon is unlike anything else I have in my collection. It goes on the nail smoothly, and I love the sheerness of it – it gives it an aquatic feel, like you could shrink yourself and dive right in, doing the breaststroke around bobbing golden glitters.

The name of this polish combined with the polish itself also makes me think of a desert canyon right around dusk, when the sun begins to set and everything becomes infused in a bluish haze.

And when this polish hits the sunlight, it glows from within. It’s difficult to photograph, but you can get an idea of how it seems to glow in this next photo, when my fingers start to get a little bit blurry:

Check out the glimmer on my ring finger!

Smitten Polish can be found at her etsy shop, and her blog can be found here.


Pink Goes Good With Green! – Smitten Polish

Today I have another Smitten Polish to share with you – Pink Goes Good With Green! It’s a perfect springtime color:

‘Pink Goes Good With Green!’ (the exclamation mark is part of the name, but it keeps throwing me off as I type) is part of Smitten Polish’s recent Wicked collection. It’s a creamy, minty green with an optimistic mix of pink, fuschia, and light green glitters.

I was surprised by how much I loved ‘Pink Goes Good With Green!’ on – I didn’t think I was a big sea foam green kind of person, but once I put this on I began to rethink that. It’s such a calming color, and the pop of the pinks creates a striking balance with its bright energy.

‘Pink Goes Good With Green!’ is another Smitten Polish that sells out quickly whenever it’s restocked in her etsy shop, so if it’s one you’re after then I’d recommend following her facebook page so you can know when restocks are going to happen.

Adeste Fidelis and Chocolate Bunny Soup – Smitten Polish

I’m still feeling a bit under the weather, but I have two awesome polishes to share with you today in between coughing and drinking hot tea. They’re so fantastical they’re helping to distract me from not feeling well! Both are from Smitten Polish, an indie maker I had heard many good things about but hadn’t been lucky enough to experience until now.

First up is Adeste Fidelis:

Pink and green hex glitters swim in a pink-white base, with a warm shimmer of micro gold glitters throughout. The pale, delicate colors of the glitter and the base combine beautifully. I don’t get to experience snow much, but this polish makes me imagine waking up in the morning, all warm under the blankets, and peeking out the window to see snow has fallen overnight, everything all soft and white while the sun begins to rise.

Adeste Fidelis was released as part of Smitten Polish’s holiday collection, and it still sells out quickly on her etsy shop whenever it’s restocked.┬áIt’s such a unique color combination, and I received several compliments while wearing it.

Next up is a polish with an adorable name – Chocolate Bunny Soup:

Look at the lil’ sunburst on my pinkie the camera captured!

The name of this polish combined with the polish itself makes me imagine some bunnies hopping about a cauldron full of molten chocolate, tossing in jelly beans and easter eggs to make a bunny soup. Right?? Just look at all the colorful circle glitters floating around in the shimmery, warm caramel-brown base:

This is one of Smitten Polish’s most recent releases, and I just love it! Where Adeste Fidelis is subtle, lovely, and quietly colorful, Chocolate Bunny Soup is wacky, sweet, and brightly upbeat. It’s such a fun polish for spring – almost like little flower buds starting to poke their way through the dirt and beginning to blossom.

I will have a couple more Smitten Polishes to share with you tomorrow, so stay tuned! I’m a huge fan of the creative glitter and color combinations she comes up with.

You can find Smitten Polish at her etsy shop, or on Llarowe.

Edit – Wanted to share one more of Adeste Fidelis on here that everybody on my facebook seems to like – I feel like it looks like my nails are moodily staring out my window. ;D
