Hope you all enjoy your (long) weekend! Today I have some Ninja Polish polishes to show you which I have been trying out over various colors other than black.
First up is Alexandrite. Its a fine glittery duochrome nail polish that can be worn alone if you’re willing to waste this beauty on layers, or it can be worn over other colors. The duochrome effect is very strong and evident on this one. It sparkles turquoise to purple, sometimes a bit pink, gold and blue too. I used one coat over MAC Peppermint Patti.
I tried Alexandrite over various other colors, but I like it the best over mint. I also thought it looked cool over a vivid medium blue, such as essence shopping @ portobello road.
With Eye Candy, I had some difficulties finding a good base color. It is a very colorful tiny glitter mix consisting of blue, purple, green, gold/orange, and most probably other colors, but that’s primarily what I see. Unexpectedly, I liked this best over purple (p2 cool plum)….
… and blue (p2 wintry blue).
I’m a big fan of polishes with a gold-greenish color, so Zultanite looked the most fun to me from the beginning on. It has this unusual color shift from copper to olive but an intense golden glow (it is never, ever, brown.) I love colors like this! I decided to layer it over a similar base color – obviously the color shift is stronger if layered over black, but I think everything looks so alike if layered over black! – but it looks the most “natural” over Revlon Spanish Moss.
Did you find any other layering combinations you could share? I’m always interested!

Today I want to show you a nail polish that my friend B. lent me to swatch. I didn’t feel the need to own this polish, because I can’t really wear it – it’s too bright, too glittery and it glows in the dark, three good arguments against wearing this at work. So I borrowed it to see it in reality and maybe change my mind.
Ninja Polish has produced various polishes lately that have been received with quite some furore in the nail polish community. Howling Blue Moon is one of them. I used two coats for this manicure – they went on easily, the only thing is that you have to fish for the moons.
The polish is very very blue, not at all decent or quiet, but very extroverted and present. It is filled with tiny holographic and silver glitters, which add to the sparkle.
I personally do not care for the moons, also, if you can’t put them between layers, they have their own agenda (see my pinkie for proof!).
Well, as I said, the fun starts when you charge this polish under some light! It glows in the dark, but not “normally” greenish, but blue! And very intensely at that.
Are you as crazy about blue glow in the dark polishes as I am?
Well, that would be all of us nail polish lovers, right? Thanks to Ninja Polish producing their own shit, the polish addicts will never be clean – Ninja Polishes are just too pretty!
I started this manicure with two coats of Manhattan 08M, super creative name… It is a dusty teal creme with teensy golden glassflecks in it. Nice polish, and easy to apply.
Then I used one coat of Ninja Polish Geeks, which was lent to me by T. I often rely on my friends for my fix, it seems!
I love the name of this polish, but I must say I actually like the glitter mix more. Even though I love Sticks’n'Stones, I had enough of the black and white glitter variations. A black and green glitter mix is something new and fun again.
In this mix, there are green and black bar glitters, smaller round glitters in black, squares in green and tiny green glitterdust, all in a clear base. I love the layer of sparkliness over the dusty green polish. You can see it in the closeup – it’s a must-have for glitter lovers! Do you have any Ninja Polish polishes? Do you like Geeks?
