I hope you all had a great start of the week!
Today I have a special article about custom polishes! Have you already dreamt about creating your own polish? If that's the case, your dream can become true thanks to Nayll! :D
With Nayll, you have 2 options: you can choose to create a shimmer polish or a polish packed with glitters.
You first have to chose a base color (it can also be a clear base) and then you can add different shimmers or glitters. To me, the glitter polishes are more interesting because you can chose from so many different glitters. A huge variety of colors, shapes, and sizes is offered.
Here is the link to Nyall website: HERE and HERE is the information that you need to create your own polish (video tutorial includeed).
Fun fact: you can name your custom polish and the name will appear on the label at the front of the bottle :D
I was able to create 3 custom polishes.
For glitter polishes, I used 1 coat of Smooth It Out Glitter TopCoat by Nyall to tame the glitters. It dries to a slightly matte/rubber finish. Compared to Glitter Food, I like it better because Glitter Food gives a too thick result and you have to use at least 2 coats of glossy top coat on top to make it shiny. Smooth It Out Glitter TopCoat gives a thinner look but is still efficient at smoothing the glitters. Here I didn't use a glossy top coat on top so that you can see the finish of the glitter top coat.
Elendil: I chose a Blueberry Jelly base and added the following glitters:
Bright Pink Holographic Hex
Matte Neon Blue Flakes
Turquoise Holographic Flakes
Sea Blue Holographic Micro Bars
I applied one coat over Cadillacquer The Rest Is Silence (reviewed here).
Maiar: I chose a clear base and added the following glitters:
Black Holographic Hex
Matte Banana Yellow Dots :D
Mirkwood is a shimmer polish. I chose the Tulip Teal Jelly for the base and added the Carbon Black Shimmer to make it look darker. I used 2 coats.
Nayll also sells their own polishes that are already made and available in their standard collection.
Mysterioso, available HERE. It's a very dark grey creme. I used 2 coats.
Holy Holo Top Coat, available HERE. I used it over Mysterioso. This top coat is really interesting. It's very thin, which means it's easy to layer over other polishes, it has a good amount of holographic particles, dries smooth, and is very sparkly! I LOVE it!
It's OK, She's With Me, available HERE. I used it over my previous Mysterioso-Holy Holo top coat combo.
Thoughts. I think the idea behind Nayll is awesome! It's really wonderful to be able to create your own polish and yet to name it! If you want to do a gift to a friend, it's also a great idea for a customized gift!
I personally love Elendil, Maiar, and the Holy Holo Top Coat!!
