NOTD: Pretty Serious Cherry Bomb

Rarely does the promised shimmer in the bottle come through on the nail, but Cherry Bomb does it!  You don’t even need partial sun to see the lovely gold shimmer!

This did apply thicker than usual and was kind of a pain to work with – it didn’t level on its own, either.  There is some visible nail line on the photos but you can’t really see it in person unless you’re looking for it.

It also dries a little textured – I’ve been using a thick topcoat recently (KB Shimmer, very similar to Seche Vite) but I think I might use a second coat, or even a layer of Gelous first.  It’s not super obvious when looking at it but it’s not as smooth and shiny as it could be.

NOTD: ILNP Good Vibes

Good Vibes is a bright blue jelly with big ol scattered holo flakes.  This was much more opaque than it looks in photos – I would say the bottom left closeup is closest to what it looks like in real life.    This applied nicely and I had no staining at all when I removed it.  This polish does have a little bit of that odor bright blues sometimes have but it wasn’t super noticeable and I didn’t notice it at all after it dried.
