mark. Precious Petals Nailed It Mini Nail Lacquers - Swatches + Review

I haven't reviewed a mark nail duo since November, so I was thrilled when I spotted their latest cute couple: the mark. Precious Petals Nailed It Mini Nail Lacquers! These are so much fun for Spring 2016 as they are unexpected in that they are shimmery pastels with a matte finish {similar to the finish of the matte duo mark. released last fall} - a far cry from the pastel cremes present in many spring collections; but a welcome breath of fresh air if you're looking for something truly new and unique. Let's take a look!

Green Thumb is a Sage Green Shimmer. How stunning is that?! I've got a thing for 50 shades of green when it comes to polish, so Green Thumb just calls to me. The formula here is a little tricky to work with. While it isn't watery or runny, it feels a bit thick during application, and dries lightning fast due to the matte formulation, so you really have to keep moving when you're painting. Green Thumb does dry down to a matte finish, but I applied one layer of top coat, which brightened it up a bit, and gave it more of a satin look. This is 2 coats.

Steel Magnolia is a Charcoal Shimmer. Now that's what I'm talking about! Not being a fan of silver polishes I didn't think Steel Magnolia would appeal to me, but I was so so wrong. Ladies, this color is brilliant - and so incredibly unique in the shimmer category. The charcoal tone, while seemingly dark, lends a lavender cast in certain lights that is so apropos for spring. The formula here is rapid dry, so be quick with application to avoid lumps and bumps. Like with Green Thumb, Steel Magnolia dries matte, so I used top coat to add shine. This is 2 coats.


PRICE: $7.00 for the duo


Thanks to mark for sponsoring this post!

Love both of these! I like how the green doesn't look completely green at first. :)
