If you follow me on Facebook you may have seen just before Christmas where I won the Jindie Nails prize in ColorSutraa’s giveaway! I was so excited when I received the email from Jen at Jindie Nails! I got to pick out any four of her in-stock polishes! Well, if you’ve followed me for any length of time, one of the first indie polishes I purchased was Jindie Nails’ Chomp Chomp, an orange and blue glitter geared towards Gator fans! I have lusted after many of her polishes since, but have not been able to purchase any. Here are the four polishes I picked out: Check the Candy, Femme Fire, Fantastical, and sTEALth.
Check the Candy and Femme Fire are two polishes of Jen’s that I have been lemming for a REALLY long time! Basically since she released them, as I believe both were from her “early days.” I was super excited on the timing of winning, as Check the Candy is about to be discontinued, and like I said I had REALLY wanted this one.
So of course Check the Candy was the polish I had to try first! Check the Candy was originally introduced in Jen’s 2012 Halloween collection, but due to its popularity, she added it to the core line. And boy am I glad she kept it around this long!
Check the Candy is a creamy white based polish with small blue and pink hexes, and large orange hexes throughout! I have always wanted a white based glitter polish after discovering this one, and now I’m so excited to own it!
The formula for Check the Candy was excellent! While a lot of the glitter had settled to the bottom during shipping all it took was rolling the polish back and forth in my hands a few times to get everything remixed. I had no problems getting any of the glitter out and there was no fishing required.
I love the depth of this polish – you can see each of the layers. I did three coats on each nail. I probably could have gotten away with just two, but I wanted a completely opaque nail, and I wanted more jelly-glitter goodness!
I love this polish and can’t wait to use it for cupcake nail art – doesn’t it look like icing with sprinkles on top? I’m so glad Jen still had this one in stock so that I could satisfy this lemming! My other two favorite Jindie Nails polishes are Femme Fire and Guns and Roses. Unfortunately, Guns and Roses was sold out, but I was able to get Femme Fire. I might have to go ahead and purchase Guns and Roses to complete my favorites from Jen’s collection. I am so excited to bring you the other three polishes in the coming weeks!
