I Love Nail Polish Babes in Toyland

Hey there! Today I am showing you the first of three I <3 NP polishes that I got recently.  These are my first from this brand, which I think has very nice glitter mixes.  This one was my favorite, so I had to wear it first.  It is Babes In Toyland from the Winter collection.

BIT has a fun mix of jewel toned glitters in different shapes and sizes.  There are squares, hexes, and CIRCLES!!  I am so obsessed with circle glitter lately, it feels new and fun.  I didn't have any trouble with application... the polishes are a bit on the thick side, but that didn't make them difficult to work with by any means.  I have shown you one coat, which I applied with the dabbing method.  I do tend to fuss with most glitter polishes to spread them out until they are pleasing to me, and I did that with this as well.  Another thing to mention is that they do have a stronger smell than some other polishes.  It didn't bother me, but I think being a hair stylist and around chemicals almost daily, those types of smells don't affect me as much.  The polishes ARE 3-free though.

I wanted to show this over a few different layering options, so I did a skittlette gradient for the base.  I used China Glaze Def Defying and OPI Roadhouse Blues (which turned a blackened green-blue in the gradient since I applied it over Def Defying.).

You can purchase I Love Nail Polish polishes on Etsy, and you can find more info about the brand on their Facebook page or on the I<3NP blog.
