Hello lovelies! This weekend, I received a mysterious package from Nailtini. I don’t remember ordering anything, but that’s not to say that I might not have. (Yes, it’s terrible and I have a problem, I know.) I also am involved in a Summer Secret Santa, so it’s possible that my Santa sent it my way. Either way, I would like to share the unboxing with you all and show the mani that came as a result.
The Box: Mailing label is on the side facing down. I think the sealing tape is really cool having lacquer bottles and their logo on it. The box was pretty plain other than that. It’ll make a great gift or mailing box. (This is how I think.)
The Polish: Two empty mixing bottles, and L to R: Tiger Lily, Dragon’s Kiss, Blue Lagoon. I remember seeing this set, a collaboration between Nailtini and Maryam Maquillage. I remember looking at this set online and being intrigued most by Dragon’s Kiss (red with black glitter.) I am impressed with the other two colors. Tiger Lily is a very shimmery and very bright yellow, and Blue Lagoon is a wonderful pale blue with little silver glitter.
The Resulting Mani: I had to use all of the colors at once! I applied Dragon’s Kiss to my thumb, pointer, and pinky fingers, Tiger Lily to my middle fingers, and Blue Lagoon to my ring fingers. I really like the look of the polish.
Brief Polish Review:
This was my first application of a Nailtini polish despite having one in my stash. I was very impressed at the application. The polish went on very smoothly, the glitter in Dragon’s Kiss needed no special placing, and the colors are astonishing. I would say that my only complaint is that the brush is a little on the overly-wide side, but not enough to keep me from using these again and again. I had to correct my application and completely remove Dragon’s Kiss from a couple of nails. I mention this because I have never had a glitter remove so easily. There were no pieces that wanted to stay behind with the polish. Overall, I give Dragon’s Kiss and Tiger Lily a 5 out of 5, and Blue Lagoon a 4 out of 5. Blue Lagoon’s rating is a bit lower because of needing an extra coat (total of 3) to be opaque and as I see in the photo, there is still a bit of VNL.
Dragon’s Kiss: 5/5
Tiger Lily: 5/5
Blue Lagoon: 4/5
