Polish My Life Cloud Blue and a skittlette

Hi loves! As I told you, when I was in New York I had the amazing chance to meet Shaneka from Polish My Life. The reason was I bought 3 of her beautiful polishes and she kept them aside for me so I wouldn't have to pay shipping. And how much fun is it to actually pick up polishes instead of having them delivered :D?



The first shade I chose to use is Polish My Life Cloud Blue. This is a beautiful pastel blue. And with pastel, I mean a true pastel - there is so much white in it you could say it's a blue tinged white! Normally I'd be very hesitant about a light shade like this. Formula wise these shades tend to be streaky, not leveling and patchy. But Emily (from Very Emily) already told me there was nothing to be afraid of. She was right!
A perfect, buttery formula that's opaque in 2 coats. Even my tips could be wrapped with just 1 simple swipe of color. Yup, this surely impressed me and I am even more excited to try my other 2 shades now (and maybe order some more in the future ^^).



To compliment this shade I decided to do a skittlette. Here's what I used:
Thumb Cirque Memento Mori (1 coat) stamped with Emily de Molly EDM05 and Konad White.
Index Polish My Life Cloud Blue (2 coats) decorated with 3 tiny black studs.
Middle Polish My Life Cloud Blue (2 coats) decorated with 3 tiny black studs.
Ring Cirque Memento Mori (1 coat) stamped with Emily de Molly EDM05 and Konad White.
Pinky Shimmer Irene (3 coats).



The glitter on my pinky is Shimmer Irene and this has a great formula as well. It's a microglitter which means it builds up easily and I think 2 coats would have been fine as well, but I did 3 to be sure. It's smooth with a single layer of topcoat.



What do you think of this look? And have you ever tried Polish My Life? Tell me in the comments!
Polish My Life is available through Shaneka's own webshop. Most shades retail for $9, there is also a topcoat and 3 basic shades available for $7 each. International shipping is available. You can also connect with Polish My Life on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
