Nail Pattern Boldness Swatches!

Hi all!

Today I have three polishes from Nail Pattern Boldness to show you! This is my first experience with the brand, and I have to say I really love these polishes!

Left to right: Mrs. White, Flipping Out Hard, Seppuku (With A Frisbee)

First up, I have Mrs. White. For some reason, every time I read the name of this polish I would see Mrs. White Hand because the title in the Etsy ads is Mrs. White hand made nail polish. I thought that was the name of this polish right up until I was about to post this post!

There is a disclaimer in her descriptions that reads "Even though I am showing it on its own, I would not recommend this as a full coverage glitter for anyone but the most tenacious polish lovers." My first thought when reading this was, "Challenge accepted!"

Mrs. White is the only polish I did this for because it required 3 thick coats. I really think that she was correct in stating this is not the best polish on its own. I took it off pretty much immediately because I felt like it was too thick to dry.

BUT as a topper... Oh, as a topper... It's beautiful! I think this was my favorite out of the three.

Here's 2 coats over Essie Marshmallow:

I really liked this combo, but I wanted to try it over something that would make the satiny matte white glitters pop.

1 coat over Essie A Crewed Interest:

Next up is Flipping Out Hard. I like this a lot, and I think it's a pretty good substitute for all of those people who never got their hands on Floam. It looks more yellowy-green to me while Floam is more blue, but I don't have Floam to compare. Either way, this is a great polish!

2 coats over Misa Green With Envy:

Finally, Seppuku (With A Frisbee)! Not sure what this name means, but I like it! Orange glitter... You know I had to get it!

2 coats over Essie Good As Gold:

I loved that over gold! I wish I had added 1 more coat so that you could only see peeks of the gold. My last combination to show you was the hardest to photograph. It was also purposely slated to be last so I could finish wearing this orange-on-orange combo for the Clemson game last week! My camera just freaked out and would not get the fun orange color.

2 coats over Zoya Myrta:

Unfortunately, Clemson lost that game, so I don't think I will be using this as a game day mani anymore... I guess I'm superstitious like that. But I WILL be wearing this often in the off season! :)

Nail Pattern Boldness can be purchased from her etsy shop and also from Llarowe. I will be purchasing from Nail Pattern Boldness again for sure. I really wanted to grab Sense Out Of Nonsense and Bitches Brew, but they were out. Next time!
