Hi folks! Happy Hump Day (although it’s almost over). I’ve been a busy swatching machine lately, so you’ll see a bunch of posts over the next week. It always seems to ebb and flow depending on the time of year. Fall and Halloween is such a busy time and makers really seem to shine during this season. I know Natalie from Noodles Nail Polish’s favorite season is Fall, so she really goes all out. Case in point, she didn’t do a 6-piece collection like usual, she went with 8 (spoiler for tomorrow’s post). Tonight I have the Halloween trio which will be available this Friday, September 25th at 5 PM EST on the Noodles website. All polishes will retail for just $9.50 each.
Best Techniques for Smoothing Out and Removing Glitter *updated 9/23/20*
If you read my posts about Noodles, you’ll see this little blurb posted each time. And if you can believe it, I do update this as I find new products I think would be helpful. Noodles Nail Polish are very glitter-heavy polishes, so I thought I’d mention the best techniques to remove glitter. Since they all contain glitter, they will dry with some texture, so I recommend at least 1 coat of topcoat. If you are especially sensitive to feeling your polish, make sure your topcoat is a thick one, or apply a second coat of a thinner one.
Noodles Nail Polish Ghosted (3 coats)
Woot, the famous white glitter crelly! Ghosted is a white crelly base with grey, orange, gun metal, and black hexagonal glitters with black star glitters. To make it easier to get the star glitter out, I would put the bottle upside down for a half hour before you plan on applying the polish. I didn’t remember to do that and had to do a little bit of fishing to show as many star glitters as I do. Again, this was my fault for forgetting. I ended up using 3 thin coats for my photos, but you may be able to get away with 2 if you use thick coats, or have short nails. It does dry with texture, so use some of my tips above to smooth it all out. I always love these white crellies!
Noodles Nail Polish Hallo-Queen (1 coat over black)
Another little spoiler for tomorrow’s post with the Fall Collection – get ready for some more glitter toppers 😊 As always, I went ahead and used Hallo-Queen over a black base to showcase the rainbow of glitter. It’s a clear based glitter topper with silver, purple, and orang holo glitters and orange iridescent hexagonal glitters. It was extremely glitter-dense, but I’m not 100% sure it would completely cover in 3 coats, hence using it only as a topper. No fishing was needed for this baby. It dried with texture, but not quite as much because I only used one coat of the glitter polish, so you may be able to get away with 1 coat of topcoat.
Noodles Nail Polish Witchin’ (3 coats)
You know how much I love grey polishes and circle glitter, right? I mean, I feel like Witchin’ was just made for me. It’s a medium grey crelly base with black, neon purple, neon orange, and neon green glitters. When you really think about it, Halloween colors aren’t just orange and black; you have to throw green and purple in there as well which makes this one the epitome of a Halloween polish. All of these applied easily like all of my Noodles, and I used 3 thin coats for my photos. Again, it dried with lots of texture from the larger glitters, so 2 coats of topcoat, or a smoothing glitter topcoat will help with that.
There you have it, folks! I adore all 3 polishes, but my favorites have to be Witchin’ and Ghosted. What are your favorites? Make sure to stop back tomorrow for another review of polishes that will be released this Friday.
