I know many of you have seen or heard about the new FTC Guidelines that have had bloggers changing their formats, if not you can find the guidelines by looking them up on google. I have always disclosed if a product was provided to me but I'm guessing it wasn't black and white enough so I have updated my "Disclosure Tab" and will be linking it in each post. After hours of struggle, and a long string of obscenities that made my husband retreat in fear, I have decided not to do the "disclosure buttons" that many bloggers are including on their pages. I will admit that am in no way a computer nerd but I am usually capable of doing some small/simple things when it comes to my blog, apparently this task was just beyond my realm. Therefore in the interest of preserving my sanity and my marriage I have opted to just use a basic link. So, again, at the top and bottom of my posts there will be a link to my disclosure page...Press Sample, Purchased By Me, Sponsored Post and /or Affiliate Post.
Also while I'm on the subject of links, I don't know if any of my regular readers have noticed, but I have been linking previous posts, collections, labels, etc., in my posts. So if you see a a group of words that are a different color, click it! It will direct you to posts you may have missed in the past!
Ok! Now that that mumbo jumbo is out of the way I have 2 of 5 polishes from XOXO Nails' Naked Truth Collection to show you all today.
...A nude creme base with hex, bar and square matte glitters in black and white.
All photos of Dottie are shown as 3 coats topped with Mega Shine.
Dottie is a bit on the streaky side, but the top coat seems to level any streaky spots out. The nude base is too light for me though, it appears almost white against my skin. The glitters came out without the need to fish for them. Make sure to allow enough time between coats or the glitters will drag if you do not let each coat dry before applying the next. Dry time was excellent paired with the fast dry top coat. I really wish this was a bit darker so it would look right against my darker skin, but I know it would look absolutely awesome on you fairer skinned beauties though!
He's Just Not Into You...
...a nude creme base with turquoise holo hex and square glitters.
All photos of He's Just Not Into You are shown as 3 coats topped with Mega Shine.
He's Just Not Into You is my favorite of the 2. I'm not sure if it's the, blue glitters vs the black and white or if the base is slightly a different shade of nude, but this looks better on me than Dottie did. Now it's still not the correct color of nude for me but it just looks less severe to me. I'm I imagining this?? IDK. Anyway, the formula for HJNIY is the same as it was in Dottie. Any streaks leveled with top coat and the glitters came out so easily. I love the holo, it really takes the basic nude to a whole other level. Still soft and sweet but with a bit of pizazz! Neither one required a glitter smoothing top coat since the glitters were nice and flat against the nail and they blended nicely into the polish.
