Ring Ding Ding Ding Dingeringeding by Ellagee

I have a new favorite polish! And it’s called Ring A Ling A Ding Dong. I mean, Ram A Lam A Dang Doo! I mean – dang it, let me go look it up on Ellagee’s page again.

It’s called RING DING DING DING DINGERINGEDING!

WAT

No, really, Mr. Fox! That’s what it’s called! And I love it!

I like it, show me more!

Okay!

It’s perfect. I approve.

Fox approved!

But honestly, people – this is the perfect fox polish of all time. We can all pack up now and go home. Time to close up shop. The Polish Fox is complete – the perfect fox polish has finally been done.

This product was provided for an honest review.

It only took one swipe of this polish to know how awesome it was. It goes opaque in one coat – I love when that happens. The holo is stunning, and it dries insanely fast. And the color? The perfect, autumnal, rusty, burnt-orange, foxiest fox shade of all time.

You remember the dashing cartoon Robin Hood of our childhood?

This is him in a bottle.

So, what does the fox say? Ring Ding Ding Ding Dingeringeding! AND IT LOOKS FABULOUS.

Seize The Rainbow – Model City Polish

I have a feeling that I’m the neighborhood weirdo. I don’t get any direct sunlight in my house, so I always have to stand outside to get shots of my nails in the sun. So there I am, shooting pictures of my hands, usually in my pajamas, with my neighbors walking their dogs and driving by me. But I do it for you, readers! I’m the neighborhood weirdo so I can share indie polish with you lacqueristas.

Just kidding. I would be the neighborhood weirdo with or without nail polish, probably.

Anyways, today I’ve got a lovely Model City Polish to share with you. This is Seize The Rainbow:

3 Coats, direct sunlight

Seize The Rainbow is actually a holographic topper – you can apply a thin coat to any polish to give it a holographic effect. But it looks beautiful all on its own – subtle, delicate, shimmery – it almost reminds me of mist. Have you ever seen a waterfall on a bright sunny day? When the mist at the bottom of the waterfall catches the sunlight and rainbows appear? That’s what it makes me think of.

The formula on this is lovely. It goes on buttery smooth. I did end up using four thin coats, but it was mostly because I was spacing out and watching tv while I painted and was kind of mindlessly running the brush over my nails. It was easy to do, because the application was so velvety I didn’t really have to pay attention to make it go on effortlessly streak-free and lovely. Next time I would probably stop at 2-3 coats, because I think this would look really pretty a little more sheer.

Indoors, this polish becomes a beautiful, shimmery silver color:

Indoor lighting

And then, because I just really want to cement myself as the neighborhood crazycakes, I stood in my front yard at dusk and took pictures of my nails with the flash on.

Evening, with flash

Model City Polish can be bought on etsy and also at her own shop. She also has her own nail polish blog where she swatches and reviews a variety of indies. I recommend her wholeheartedly.
