How are we today? I have a couple of Jindie Nails swatches to show you today. Quite fancied myself some swatch action after my crazy nail art run (pah!). I bought these back in January and have only now had the time to get these bad boys up.

*Quick note* My skin looks weird as hell in these photos! Not a clue what happened but hey ho...just thought I'd let you know that I'm aware that I look like an alien*
Burrrberry (I hope I put enough 'r's) has a white/off blue crelly base (creme/jelly hybrid) with loads of purple, blue and pink hex glitter. The glitter pay off with this was immense! I loved the random large hexes that popped up every so often and the formula was spot on. This is 3 easy coats, I haven't a bad word to say about this and I really wished I'd swatched this last so I could continue wearing it. Nom nom nom.
Candy Land has to be one of the most popular shades in the Jindie Nails collection. I hear fellow polish lovers going mad for this whenever there's a restock and for good reason. It's another white crelly (definitely white this time) with a fairly decent amount of neon hex glitter in various sizes; it really is so different to anything I've ever seen before. The formula was a little difficult to work with; the trick here is to stand the polish upside down for a few minutes between coats to allow the brush to grab onto the glitter. I did a little fishing as well to get the larger hexes out but I think it was definitely worth it. This is 4 coats in total (say whaaaat!?) so it would definitely benefit with layering over a plain white polish if you want to save the preciousness and ease application.
Honey Blue Blue was a surprise winner for me. I'm not usually into pale blue as they just make my skin look all weird but this worked somehow. This is a creme finish with a good amount of blue and green small hex glitter. You're seeing 3 coats here. It went on a little thick at first and kept dragging the previous coat off which miffed me right off, but after 3 coats and some drying time between coats it sorted itself out. Definitely worth the effort.
