Amy's Nail Boutique-Marigold

I have been very lucky.  I hear a lot of things about people buying Indie Polish Brands and some of what I hear is not positive.  This has not been my experience to date.  I have had nothing but the best of luck with my purchases.  I have bought dozens over the last few months and love them all.  There are some I don't love as much as others but none that I am willing to swap or sell at this point.  I also have had good luck with sellers.  Some I have had no contact with at all.  I placed an order, they shipped, I enjoyed.  Others I feel go above and beyond with regard to their customer service.  Simple things like going out of their way to keep me informed about the status of a package even if it is shipped in a reasonable time frame.  Others take pride in packaging in special and unique ways. 

One seller I really love is Amy from Amy's Nail Boutique.  She is super quick with her shipments, has a great sense of humor and I really love her polish.  She recently came out with a line based on flowers and I really wanted them all but I am trying to be reasonable.  I ended up with four.  Here is the first one and it's called Marigold.  I am choosing this one to start because I think it is a great polish to buy for summer, right into fall and then Halloween.  I also recently got some Zoya's in the mail and decided that Rica might be great to use as undies.  I wanted a sheer look beneath.  Here is a bottle shot of the two.

And the two combined below.  Just one coat of each followed by a top coat of SV.

I really like the combo.  Rica has great gold and yellow shimmer with an orange base.

Please disregard the fact that my nails are all different lengths.  They have been breaking all week and I am not emotionally ready to bring them all that short yet.  I should have taken a picture of the other hand to show you how super long those nails are.  I know, it's pathetic.

Sitting outside today (for a brief time because I was melting), I couldn't stop staring at the sparkle.  And I am just in love with the textured glitters.  You know the ones that look like Ruffles potato chips.


  1. LOVE! I think I may have to get this! Reminds me of Two Birds, One Store's Those Summer Nights.

  2. I love it! That's how my nails are right now too. I have like three short ones and it annoys me.

  3. Love the combo, they look really great together x
