Pretty Little Nails Swatch

So, a little swatch for you today.  I haven't been reading Amelia's blog for very long, but I'm already hooked - she has great posts about polish, but also beauty stuff in general and life in general! Anyway, when she posted about her Etsy store Pretty Little Nails I couldn't resist having a look and picking up some of her gorgeous indie polish - I loved the look of Video Killed the Radio Star. It's my first indie polish I've bought and I'm pretty excited about it.  It painted on really nicely, a clear polish with with black and white hexagonal flecks (which are both in two sizes).  I only had to do a little rearranging of the flecks once they were on my nail.  My only difficulty with the polish was that it was quite hard to take off! I must get myself sorted with some PVA glue to paint on as a base coat when I'm using glitter polishes... but I figure if that's the only downside, it's a great polish that I can't wait to wear again - let me know in the comments what colour you think it would go well over?

(Excuse the hideous green background, it's my desk at work!) - but this is how the polish arrived, so cute all wrapped up like a little present!

And this is the polish with the name tag!

I put Video Killed the Radio Star over Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Flashy Fuschia (which I got years ago in the US and so it's a bit gloopy these days)

Have you got any indie polishes? What are they? Pop your link in the comments below - I love visiting to see what everyone else has been up to!
