New brand alert! Nail Social Nail Brand joins the indie polish scene with Summer Vibes, their debut 15-piece collection featuring shimmers, glitters and cremes. I'm showcasing three colors from the collection.
SASSY & CLASSY
Sassy & Classy is a purple shimmer with a sprinkling of delicate iridescent flakies. The fuchsia shimmer gives the polish a radiant glow. It also really compliments the purple base color. The barely-there flakies have a soft rainbow effect in the sun and add another element of interest. I used two coats with a top coat and had no application issues.
APOLOGIES IN CA$H
Apologies In Ca$h is a gold/green shifting microglitter in a pink tinted base. No apologies needed for this stunner. If you ever wanted a nail polish version of a makeup highlighter for your nails, this is it. It captures the light beautifully and I love the gold to green shift.
Some gold colors don't work well on me (especially if they're too yellow-toned), but this one had me after the first brushstroke. Two coats went on "like buttah," very smooth. I finished with a top coat and I bet it would look amazing matte. I'd say the maker has a real knack for gold-based polishes and would like to see more golden and metallic colors in the future.
JUST ADD TEQUILA
Just Add Tequila is a bright and sassy neon lime green. It's no secret that I absolutely LOVE neon polish, and this one is no exception. It's an attention-getting color that's perfect for summer. I keep thinking I have candy-coated nails and I'm here for it!
Now, application was streaky with this color — which is known to occur with neon shades at times. I applied three coats to try and even out the streaks. It still wasn't completely smooth, but a good ol' glossy top coat fixed it right up. My longtime favorite is Glisten & Glow HK Girl. Even with the streaking, I'd say this color is worth the extra effort to achieve striking look-at-me nails.
As previously mentioned, Summer Vibes is a rather large collection consisting of 15 polishes. Tasia, the maker behind Nail Social Nail Brand, has put together a pretty strong and diverse collection for her debut. You can't go wrong with so many colors and finishes to choose from.
