Model City Polish - Holobration (&Giveaway)

Hello Family.

I am excited to share with you that today MAY 30, is Model City Polish [1 Year] Anniversary!!!!  365 days ago today, Nina (founder of MCP) opened up shop on Etsy to share her love for polish with others by creating her own polish and sharing them for all of us to love!

I have reviewed a couple of polishes for MCP in the past, but it had been a while since I had gotten to do any reviews/blog posts due to an illness in my family.  When Nina contacted me asking me if I would be willing to participate in her 1 Year Anniversary Celebration, I was super excited.  It had been a while since I had gotten my hands on some MCP and I couldn't pass up this fun filled opportunity!

Holobration is a VERY limited edition (numbered) polish, especially created for MCP's 1 Year Anniversary!  Holobration is a clear base polish consisting of LARGE holo blue circles, small pink squares, medium purple squares, orange hex, mini holo bars and fine iridescence glitters.  Honestly... I am not a fan of any polish with bar glitters.  On top of that I couldn't figure out which color to use as my base color... BUT this polish was made for a specific reason.  It had to be special... So after swatching with multiple different colors on a nail wheel... I finally decided this should be layered over something fun and poppy... after all, it is summer right?  For my base color I used, Finger Paints - Art You Kidding Me? and for my ring finger I used Ruby Wing - Sand Dune...

Pretty & Polished - Tart

Pretty & Polished - Tart
Application of this polish was fabulous.  The suspension wasn't completely opaque, but creamy enough to get good coverage without it feeling goopy.  This opacity only required 2 coats, no undies.

Serum No. 5 - Barely There [Day 1 of 31]...

I know I don't post as much as other bloggers for my followers, for that I apologize. I would like you all to know that one of my goals this year is to post much more content for you all!

Well to kick off my goal this year... I am participating in #untriedindiesmonth with Kianna at [Polish & Pandas], who started this challenge on IG.  Seeing as I have over 100 untrieds, I figured this would be a great opportunity to get some of those swatched for you all!

Day 1: Barely There by Serum No. 5... 

Serum No. 5 - Barely There

SN5 - Barely There, 2 coats... [over] Essie - Mademoiselle, 2 coats.

Application of Barely There was fabulously smooth and consistent.  The suspension is a light nude with silver micro glitter to give it that subtle shimmer and tiny silver and holo hex glitters.  It was amazing.

So if any of you would like to check out my Instagram, you can find me [@jlynntc]... I post alot more often on there, than on here.  Sorry loves, I promise that will change! <3 

More #untrieds coming throughout this whole month!
