Lime Crime Nail Mail


Good morning! It's only been since Wednesday since my last post, but it feels like forever! I have a little package I want to show you guys, but first...I want to welcome new readers who have joined me here :) The "Followers to Friends" blog hop that began on 08/08/12 was amazing! Thank you again Sherry and Sylvia for starting this! Remember to check our their blogs every Wednesday for their "Followers to Friends" blog party! Second, I want to apologize for my lack of visiting blogs. I'm usually pretty good about keeping up with fellow bloggers' posts, but this week has been a bit hectic and I just wanted to let you guys know I will be catching up on posts soon because I always love visiting you all! :)

Now on to my little package...

I first saw Lime Crime Nail Polish (affiliate link) on Nailed It's blog here and I fell in love with the colors! (Check out her post if you want to see awesome swatches of them!) I was on a "no buying nail polish" binge for a while, but I ended up purchasing 4 of the 7 colors...I just couldn't resist!

A couple weeks ago they arrived beautifully packaged:







Below are swatches of all 4. I also applied a matte coat on Peaches ♥ Cream, Pastelchio, and Lavendairy. I didn't apply the matte coat over Parfait Day because I had used that in the Cotton Candy Mani post.








I really loved the color pay off from these polishes and only needed 2 coats. The only thing slightly negative about the polishes was the formula. It was a little thick than I would have liked, but it wan't impossible to work with. What do you guys think of these colors? 

I hope you all are enjoying your weekend!

  8. I don't think I could wear these colors, but I would buy them anyway cause they look so pretty! Or maybe if I wore them it would be to the beach, or in some beach town. They remind me of Tybee Island in Georgia, a cute beach town that had these colors everywhere. The packaging is so cute, I even love the box!


    And thanks again for co-hosting! (:

  10. The packaging looks absoultely beautiful but the color looks a little dull. Is it just the picture that is making it look this way or maybe thats how the polish is supposed to look???? BTW I love your blog. First time visitor!

    1. lol it might be the lighting or it might be because I didn't apply top coat to any of them except for Parfait Day. Maybe that's why...and then I also used a matte top coat over them afterwards...that could play a part too hehe.
      Aw thanks and thank you for visiting! :D

  11. The colors are absolutely lovely. What is a Matte Coat? Is that something new? I never do my own nails, I always go to the shop. I've been getting them done so long that I feel funny without them. Are these your natural nails? They look so strong.

    1. They really are. Hmm a matte coat is a top coat that makes the polish look matte, with no shine. It's not too new. I think it's been around for a few years now. Yes, my nails are natural :) Thanks so much! I try to keep them in good shape :)

  13. These are such candy fun colours! I wanted to order, but I don't think they were shipping nail polish to Canada at the time. Their packaging is always so nice and inviting that it makes you want to wear all of the colours at once!
