Good morning and happy Valentines Day! I hope you are having a lovely day, whether it be romantic or fun. I know some of you are more excited for tomorrow...half price candy day! It's totally time to stock up on candy to stash away for those times of desperate sugar rush need! 2 ladies that are surely going to hit up all the grocery and drug stores for candy are Laura from ellagee and Rahpaelle from Digital Nails. These 2 are so excited in fact that they came up with a super sweet duo to celebrate the cult holiday. Of course that's what I have to share with you today and after some swatching last night I had to put these on as a full mani for today because they are such a fabulous combination and so cutesy. I have pictures of all the goodies that come in the box for you to enjoy as well! The Half Price Candy Day Duo will be available tomorrow, 2/15 at 3pm CST. The duo is $20 (including shipping) and will be available in BOTH shops. This duo is limited edition so act quickly if you want one! Alright, let's delve in to this delicious post!
Here's what the Half Price Candy Day Duo box looks like upon opening and removing a layer of stuffing. Mmmm, I spy candy!
Here's everything pulled out - look how cute the card is! So hippy and colorful. I love the magnets too! One of my helmers is proudly displaying them now.
Close up of the polishes!
Digital Nails I Chews You (adorable name) is bubblegum pink creme, leaning a bit to the crelly family, full of gorgeous blue-aqua shimmer. It's really stunning and fun and sure to make any pink lover squeeee. I Chews You had a great formula, zero issues to report. It applied perfectly. I used 3 coats of I Chews You and topped it with a layer of topcoat.
ellagee Secret Sugar Stash is a super sweet blend of pastel matte glitters in a clear base with the same blue-aqua shimmer. I see white, pink, aqua, purple, yellow and orange glitters. It's very reminiscent of that famous box of candy conversation hearts! I really like that both polishes have the same shimmer because it really ties them together. Secret Sugar Stash had a fantastic formula and was easy to work with. I brushed a light layer of glitter on the top of my nails and then to get the most glitter per nail ratio for my upside down gradient I applied a 2nd layer with a cosmetic sponge. I finished with a layer of topcoat for a totally smooth finish.
Just to show you another way to wear this I put on a matte topcoat. I have to say that I think this is my favorite way to wear glitters! The matte gives is such a lovely soft focus finish and lets the blue-aqua shimmer show through.
