    Serum No. 5 Starry Nights
a.k.a galaxy nails without even trying. Boom. 
[[MORE]]
Shown is two coats of Starry Nights over a navy blue base. I was honestly so excited when I saw this polish because it’s my first polish with novelty glitter. Is that what it’s called? Well that’s what I’m going to call it because it sounds better than “glitter that isn’t shaped like what most glitter is usually shaped like”. Starry nights is described as having “silver holographic stars, off white, gold, lavender and sapphire glitter in a shimmering deep blue base.”
Oh my goodness beautiful. That’s all I have to say. 
Starry Nights can be purchased here. If you have any questions regarding her polish you can find Serum No. 5 on Facebook, Tumblr, and Etsy. Also, every month Serum No. 5 will make a donation to a charity of her choice in an amount equal to 20% of the proceeds of all lacquers sold. The November charity is No Kid Hungry.

    With all of the crazy weather we’ve been having in New England lately, I thought it was only appropriate to do nail art featuring Serum No. 5 Stormy Weather. 
[[MORE]]
Stormy Weather is a lovely polish featuring “micro white glitter, purple glitter, navy hex and silver lightning bars in a holographic gray base”. It’s from the Fall collection and I’d say it’s one of my favorites out of the bunch. I really love the blue/purple/grey combination. Shown is two coats over a navy blue base.

    Rainbow Honey A Little Kindness over Zoya Petra
A Little Kindness is a lovely polish inspired by Fluttershy from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It is described as having “rose, white, gold, and soft green glitters floating in a delicate pale yellow base with an iridescent pink shimmer.” It’s a gorgeous polish and I love Fluttershy so of course I had to have it!

    Metametics Vine Whip
Vine Whip is a super intense neon green polish with green bar glitter. Pictured is two coats over white. I know I’ve said it before but white is always necessary underneath neons. It just is. Unless you don’t want it to actually look neon. 
But seriously, it looked like my fingers were glowing, this was so bright. It was awesome.

    Ooh La Lacquer I’m a Matte 4 U over a gradient with Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac and Finger Paints Beach Bum.
I’m a Matte 4 U is a clear based polish filled with matte pink and blue macro glitter. For these nails I used two coats, which gave me a good amount of glitter without being too thick. The formula was nice an I had no application problems. I’m a big fan of matte glitter so overall I really liked this polish. :)
Ooh La Lacquer can be found on Etsy, Tumblr, and Facebook. If you’d like to make a purchase you can use the code “QuitePolished” for 10% off your order. :)

    Metametics Blood and Snow
[[MORE]] 
Blood and Snow was inspired by Game of Thrones. It has a clear base and is filled with white hex glitter of varying sizes and red hex and bar glitter. Unfortunately none of the bar glitter made it onto the fingers shown. I will admit that I was pretty sloppy when it came to this manicure due to a time crunch. Somehow there is tipwear on my middle finger and this picture was taken minutes after applying the topcoat. Also, this was my Fourth of July mani. I’m only about a month late posting it.
Anyways, on to the polish! Shown is two coats over Zoya Breezi. The formula was a bit thick but the glitter is fairly dense so it’s understandable. As you can see the bar glitter is pretty sparse. I wasn’t too concerned, mainly because I tend to have problems with bar glitter sticking up. I love the way it looks but it’s unwillingness to stay underneath topcoats makes me sad. :(

    I’m sorta back! In addition to life stuff I also have to get ready for college and I don’t have much time for nail art right now so it’s going to be a little boring around here for a while. I’m going to try and at least keep up with reviews though.
Moving on, these are the nails I rocked for Lollapalooza! I had originally meant to do something a lot crazier but then it was 1 am so crazy wasn’t happening and I went with studs and glitter because those are my two loves.
All my nails have a base of Orly Ancient Jade. My thumb, ring, and pinky fingers are topped with Rainbow Honey Siren Song (one of my all time favorites) and my index and middle fingers have Serum No. 5 Girl’s Gotta Eat. 
[[MORE]]
This is the second post that has included Girl’s Gotta Eat, and because my first post was already reviewing something else I wanted to wait to give it its own review post. So here it is! I’m also going to start doing reviews after the “read more” thing just because I tend to get wordy and I want to make my posts more dashboard friendly. :)
Anyways, this is my third review for Serum No. 5, a fairly new indie polish brand. Girl’s Gotta Eat is a glitter topcoat featuring small and micro gold glitter, small holographic glitter, and medium sized silver glitter. 
Pictured is three fairly thick coats, all three of which went on like a breeze! I was going for as much coverage as possible, which can be hard to do with some glitter topcoats without it feeling like you have a million layers of polish on your nails.
Girl’s Gotta Eat worked great with the gradient that I first used it with also. When I do glitter gradients I really like using polishes that have micro glitter because I think they help to make the gradient look a lot smoother. 
Girl’s Gotta Eat can be purchased here. If you have any questions regarding her polish you can find Serum No. 5 on Facebook, Tumblr, and Etsy. Also, every month Serum No. 5 will make a donation to the Make A Wish Foundation in an amount equal to 20% of the proceeds of all lacquers sold.

    Metametics Sunspear
Sunspear was inspired by the TV series Game of Thrones. Pictured is two coats over Essie Orange, It’s Obvious! Sunspear has a clear base and is filled with small red glitter, medium yellow and orange glitter, and red diamond glitter. I really love how this looks over Orange, It’s Obvious! even though it means not being able to see the medium orange glitter as well. 
Application was great, the formula isn’t too thick so it was easy to do multiple coats of polish. The glitter dispersed evenly as well so I didn’t have to do any placement. 
Sunspear is not currently for sale but you can find other Metametics polishes here. If you have any questions regarding her polish you can find Metametics on Facebook, Tumblr, and of course Etsy.
