Tip Top Nails South Africa: Blue Meets Green

Hello Lovelies! Happy New Years Eve!! I don't know about you, but I'm hoping that 2013 doesn't start off as badly as 2012 did! I swear I had the worst luck in January of this year. Here's to a better one in '13!

Also, this is the LAST DAY TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY!!!  CLICK HERE TO ENTER! Make sure you get those daily entries as well!

Today I have Blue Meets Green from Tip Top Nails South Africa to share with you. I was very excited to have the opportunity to review Tip Top Nails products for you all. If you haven't seen what they have to offer, I highly recommend checking them out!

Blue Meets Green is just what the name suggest: a lovely teal blue/green creme. This color is absolutely gorgeous! I used this for some nail art that I have coming up as well since it's a perfect color for a stamping base, as well as being beautiful on its own. There are two Collections from Tip Top Nails available: Nail Chic and Nail Addict. This polish is from Tip Top's Nail Chic Line.

As you can see, I'm back to photographing my left hand. I just got tired of struggling to get decent pictures of my right hand. My left hand is still somewhat short due to the nature of the breaks a few weeks back, but they're finally shaped and long enough to show again. :)

All photos are 2 coats of Blue Meets Green over Tip Top Nails Toughen Up Base Coat and topped with Tip Top Nails Toughen Up Top Coat (review to come!). This color does do interesting things to my skin tone, so ignore that!











I love a good teal and Blue Meets Green did not disappoint (despite the weird skin tone in photos!). My camera did want to make this a touch more blue than it is IRL, but it's very close.

Formula:
Blue Meets Green has one of the nicest creme formulas I have ever used. The consistency was absolute perfection. I experienced no thickening, or glopping. Wonderful!

Application:
Smooth and silky, this girl applied like butter! Although BMG is Opaque at one coat, I used 2 here out of habit. No dragging or balding, and as a bonus this required about 2 seconds of clean up. If you do use clean-up to straighten your lines, be careful! This color will leave a touch of blue on your cuticles if they're dry at all. Wear is impressive - I wore this for 3 days and had zero tip wear and no chipping! This polish is also incredibly shiny, even without top coat.

I can't think of a single con to this polish - I'm truly that impressed with this brand. I have 3 more colors to show you all, as well as their Toughen Up Base and Top Coat (which I'm testing out now, and am highly impressed so far!).

You can check out Tip Top Nails South Africa on their website. I couldn't find pricing or ordering information, but if you email them they are very friendly and helpful. Tip Top is renowned for its exceptionally safe products – all nail enamels are vegan, Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP (Dibuthyl Phthalate) and Camphor FREE – and made in South Africa with the best raw materials and are not tested on animals. I definitely recommend taking a grabbing some of these beauties!

Have you seen any polish from Tip Top Nails South Africa before?

Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
