Sweetcheeks I - Satin and Glitter

Hello, Fireflies!

Today and tomorrow, I'd like to show you some looks I created with a new-to-me Indie from Canada, Sweetcheeks Polish.  She offered a blogger discount that I found irrestistible!

I started with Sweetcheeks Polish Red Rainbow and Midas Rose.  Red Rainbow is a jelly packed with holo glitters.  It applied a little thick, but manageable.  Midas Rose is a satin gold with a hint of pink.  I was hoping for a little more pink shimmer.  It's there, but super subtle.

Have you seen the nail art by Kimiko7878 on Instagram?  She does some amazing stuff that I can't hope to copy, but I am inspired by her talent.  I really loved this floral accent nail she did.  I started my version by using a black striper for the branches.

I used SpaRitual Peace and Harmony, a satin/matte finish white to make the flower petals and some dots. It's pretty sheer, so I laid on a thick drop and spread it out a little.

I used a little more Red Rainbow in the centers of the flowers, and finished off with a few tiny dots of black.


Who needs long nails and painting skillz?  I got nubbins and a crayon, homies.

I was hoping the Red Rainbow would bring out some of the pink in Midas Rose, but it didn't really.  But, I still liked the effect.  If you did, too, stay tuned - tomorrow I have 3 more Sweetcheeks polishes to show you.

If you'd like more information about Sweetcheeks Polish, you can find them on Facebook and Etsy.

This post contains products that were purchased by me, at a discount, for the purpose of review.  Nonetheless, my opinions are my own, and as honest as possible.
