La Bella Vernice

Press Sample

Hello Lovelies and Happy Friday!! We made it through the week...whew! I am so excited to share with you some polishes that were sent to me for review by Roni of La Bella Vernice. All of the polishes she sent are super gorgeous, application was a BREEZE, and the packaging is to die for!! Check out these pretties...

I am a sucker for packaging and cute boxes, so these stole my heart immediately! OK, let's talk polish!

La Bella Vernice
First, I have Jozzi Bug. This is an amazingly sparkly blue/aqua holographic polish. This baby is truly gorgeous and shines bright with and without topcoat. As I stated above, application was a breeze. I used 2 coats for these pictures, but it was nearly opaque in one!

Look at that holo shine!

Sorry but I couldn't stop snapping pics of this one!

The next mani was created using Birthday Girl. This one is a clear based glitter topper that is packed with multiple sizes and shapes of red, blue, pink, and yellow neon glitters. This is so fun and would be make for a super manicure for any birthday girl to wear on her special day! I used one coat of Birthday Girl over Jozzi Bug to achieve this look. I love the way the blues compliment one another and the other glitters just POP!! This combo is a definite win! I used HK Girl Topcoat to complete the look.

I love the mix of glitters and my matte topcoat was just staring at me...so I added it and I LOVE it this way as well!!

So the next polish caught me by surprise!! I thought I was losing my mind as I began to apply it. Why you ask? Well...it was changing colors right before my eyes! HAHA! So to prove to myself I am not absolutely nuts, I checked the info Roni sent me and sure enough...this baby is a THERMAL!! In the interest of full disclosure, I have no experience with thermal polishes as I swore I'd never use any. That all went out the door when I applied Feeling Shameless. This one is an ultra holographic thermal polish that transitions between blue and purple.

This is the way it looked as I began to polish my nails. My body temperature (98.6...I guess) caused the polish to apply in the blue state. This is one coat with no topcoat.

Here it is with two coats at about the time it became clear to me that I am not coo coo!

At this point, I began to notice to transition to purple, which you can begin to see in these pictures.  The polish is a beautiful sparkling holo! Look at the shimmer! Gorgeous right?

Next, I ran downstairs (literally) to my kitchen and put my hand in the fridge. As my hubby looked at me (eyes wide open, wondering what's wrong with his wife), I snapped away pics in my refrigerator!

It looked as though it was getting darker, so to speed up the process, I picked up a pack of ground beef (I know I sound like a total weirdo!) and held it for about a minute. This is what the polish looked like after a full transition to freezing. LOVE!!!!!!

All I can say is, Roni totally changed me into a thermal polish lover! This actually worked really well for me since I am always cold. I wore it to class and was able to watch my nails change colors and freak out some of my classmates!! HAHA!

The last polish I have is called Tinkerbell. This is a cool holographic shimmer and glitter mix. It is sheer and I feel it would be best layered, so I added it to Feeling Shameless! I used 2 thin coats and topcoat.

Doesn't it really sparkle?!! I really like this combo! It's awesome because the addition of Tinkerbell to Feeling Shameless, DID NOT prevent the thermal effect from working.

Stunning...simply stunning!
