Polish Post: Model City Polish "Pour Me Another" and Mystery Polish Swatches, Review, and Nail Art

Good Morning (or Afternoon/Evening, wherever you are :D )  Hope you all survived your Monday and are ready to seize the rest of the week!  Today I've got three polishes from Model City Polish to show you.  The first polish is a Limited Edition called "Pour Me Another:"



Pour me Another, I believe, was made for the creator's venture to Cosmoprof in Las Vegas a little while ago.  It's a beautiful red-wine colored crelly packed full of holographic awesomesauce.  Opaque in 3 thin coats for me, application was a dream (as usual), and dried fairly quickly to a nice shine (no topcoat in the pics above).  There was NO staining, either, which I certainly appreciate, considering a lot of polishes in this color tend to stain.  Lovely polish, and since it is Limited Edition, it won't be around much longer - in fact, I'm almost positive whatever is in the shop right now is all that is left, and it is showing a small amount is available.  Better get one now! :)

Last week I ordered a "Mystery Bag" she put together with two unreleased polishes in very limited quantities.  The polishes are unnamed, so here is Mystery Polish number 1:



At first I thought this polish may look good as a glitter topper, so when I applied the first layer, I left "Pour Me Another" on my pinky and pointer fingers to see what it would look like over that color.  It does not look good as a glitter topper :P  So I went ahead and applied two more coats to all the nails to bring it to opacity.  This polish reminds me of rainbow asphalt.  The polish is packed with black, silver, and holographic micro glitters, and looks really gorgeous in full sunlight.  I like that it is different from any other polish I have - I bet it would look great on the toesies ^_^  It dried to a light texture, so I added two thin layers of topcoat to even it out and make is shiny.  

And here is Mystery Polish number 2:



Sometimes I can't stand how "shiny" my cuticles and the skin around my nails looks when I apply cuticle oil before pictures :P  Just looks silly to me.  

So, normally I don't reach for white or any other sort of solid colored crelly that is packed with glitters.  In general, I just don't like them as much, and always thought they'd apply weirdly or look funky.  My mind has been changed now, thanks to this polish.  When I first unwrapped it, to be honest, my initial thought was, "Oh, man, a white crelly :( " I decided to swatch it anyway, since I hadn't ever worn one before.  I fell in love, I really did.  The application was so smooth, and these bar glitters were not a hassle, nor did they clump together.  They spread out nice and evenly, and this polish was opaque in 2 coats.  There was a very, very light texture from the glitters, so I added a topcoat to make it smooth.  I'm very glad this polish was in the mystery pack, because I have never given these types a chance, and now I most certainly will!

The second mystery polish reminded me of something, too, when I saw it - ice cream!!  So I did some nail art with it ^_^  Check it out!

The pastel colors are Love You (middle pink, smells like strawberry daiquiri), Here I Go (blue ring, smells like fruit punch), and Octopus (pinky, smells like grape) - all by the brand Finger Lickin' Lacquer.

She is out of her mystery bags, though I'm sure she will probably do it again in the near future.  As I said before, though, there are still a few of those LE Pour Me Another polishes left, and I would seriously go grab one now.  She always ships her product promptly, too - I got a tracking number a few hours after I placed my order with her.  Seriously, amazing!

Have a great Tuesday, everyone!!  See you all tomorrow <3
