Last weekend, I was looking for a way to use Point Me To The Party that wasn’t over just white, and I think I hit on a pretty great solution!
I’m pretty sure I got XOX Betsey because I saw it on Short ‘n’ Chic’s blog a few years ago. I was definitely NOT a neutral polish person then, but I believe it was on sale so I was willing to try it out for cheap. The formula is really great, especially for a light color – this was two super easy coats. I actually really like this polish – I’m not usually a fan of light pinks, but for some reason this pinky-nude is working for me!
After I added my old favorite Frisky (which I think might be fading a bit? Say it ain’t so!) on my pinkie as an accent nail and did alternating dots on my pointer and pinkie, I almost didn’t add Point Me To The Party on the rest of my nails because I thought it might clash. However, as soon as I applied it, I saw thankfully that the blue in PMTTP is very similar to Frisky, so everything looked good together!
I’ve used PMTTP once before on this blog, last summer when I picked it up. It’s a very fun neon glitter topper comprised of translucent neon blue, green, purple, pink, and orange micro and hex glitter. I think China Glaze is the mainstream polish brand that’s done the best job of taking inspiration from indie polishes – this polish is clearly based on glitters like the famous Polish Me Silly‘s neon matte glitter confections, and it’s a really great effort! The glitter isn’t the easiest but also not the hardest I’ve ever dealt with – it was fairly easy to manipulate on the nail to get all the pieces where I wanted them. I was thrilled with how it looked over XOX Betsey – the whole reason I chose that color in the first place was to try to find another color to put PMTTP over that wasn’t stark white but still looked good (since the glitters are a bit translucent), and XOX Betsey worked perfectly, huzzah!
I loved this mani so much that I kept it on for nearly a full week, and I got a ton of compliments on it. I love that it’s not a super in-your-face neon but still caught people’s attention. Thanks for reading, everyone! See ya next time – A x
