Aqua Daisy - my first indie polishes

I have been resisting the urge to buy indie polishes - but then one day I stumbled across a look-alike to my biggest lemming "Connect the Dots" by Lynnderella...
So I am now the proud owner of 3 polishes from Aqua Daisy - Etsy shop
Jeg har været standhaftig og modstået fristelsen - men en dag snublede jeg over en look-alike til Lynnderella Connect the dots...
Så nu er jeg den stolte ejer af mine tre første indie polishes fra Aqua Daisy - Etsy shop 

Beauty School Dropout is a lovely pale baby pink. It needs 2-3 coats and dries quickly with a somewhat rough surface, it is shown without a top coat. It has holographic micro glitter and hexagons plus black and white. It doesn't show it's sparkle very willingly, more in glimpses...

Succulet is a mint, leaning towards turquoise with 2 sizes of purple glitter. It need two coats, and dries pretty smooth and matte, but a top coat brings extra life to it. Here shown as is.

 
Me Too - well as far as I can tell (not being the proud owner of Connect the Dots, sob, sob) it's not a dupe, it lacks the square black pieces of glitter and could have more bar glitter, but it's still very pretty...
It is shown over a 3 different colors, It dries surprisingly smooth and shiny, but I would definitely top coat it with Seche Vite.
And I guess I still have a lemming called Connect the Dots...

  14. The color combination in Succulent is so very me. I see so many indie polishes I want; it's probably a good thing there's a limited supply or I'd be in real trouble. :)

  16. I am not so crazy about nail polishes that have "pieces" like bars, hexagons or something similar, but I have to admit that I really like Mee Too, especially seeing it on both blue colours! :-)

    1. LOL - I'm not a glitter person - or I do love them, but hate to remove them, all though I do know how to, it's too long for my patience, so I tend to limit the use.
      But I do have a weakness for bar glitter - I LOVE it hahaha
