Nail Hoot: NOLA Quartet

Evening dears!  I've got a post for a gorgeous quartet that released this evening! First of all, the quartet was inspired by Nail Hoot's recent trip to New Orleans. You had me at New Orleans, I am all about it!  Each one is a fabulous color, with a nice helping of delicate shimmer or flakes.  You'll be able to purchase the NOLA Quartet individually for $7.99 each or $29.29 for the full sized set.  Let's jump in and heck them out!

I have Afloat An Airboat was inspired by the airboat swamp bayou tour Brandie went on.  They saw lots of gators (and even got peed on by one).  I've been on an airboat tour there also and can attest to how gorgeous the scenery is and how fun it is being on the boat!  Afloat An Airboat is a icy blue polish with gold microflakies and purple shimmers.  Formula and application were both great. I built up the opacity in 3 thin coats, followed with topcoat.

French Quarter Phantoms is a vampy black toned burgundy with gold microflakies and shimmer.  Loving the vibe of this one and the inspiration too! Brandie went on a nighttime graveyard bus tour. They not only got to visit the cemeteries but got to hear ghost stories!  I personally visited Garden District cemetery while running around the city one morning, absolutely beautiful and serene and peaceful but I can only imagine how creepy it would be at night!  I used 2 coats for full coverage.  Great formula, awesome application.  Finished with topcoat.

Beignet, Done That is probably my favorite of the 4.  I love me a beignet, but NONE compare to the ones at Cafe Du Monde.  Last time I was in NOLA we went there for a nightly treat...every night.  Brandie actually went on beignet tour and tried them from loads of different locations, surprisingly her favorites weren't from Cafe Du Monde, gasp!  Beignet, Done That is a shimmery grey toned red with gold micro flakes.  Good formula and application.  No problems.  I used 3 thin coats and a topcoat.

And lastly is Alligator Pee, which is also in the running for my favorite.  Brandie's craziest experience was getting peed on by an alligator!  Who else can say that?! This one is a stunning neutral, warm toned grey with a pink shimmer shift and gold microflakies.  This one is definite more sheer than the others, and I also think it would be great over a base color.  I used 3 thin coats and finished with topcoat.
