Wonder Beauty Products - Hippie Fest & Patina

Hello!! Today I have 2 gorgeous Wonder Beauty Products polishes!!  If you love shards and glitter, this post is for you!! :-)  If you don't, I think you should still take a look and give them a try because they are SO cool!!!
Jen, the owner, has a shop on Etsy, Wonder Beauty Products. Polishes range from $10-12, and are sold in palettes (jars) or bottles. Head over to her Blog and Facebook, where you can see upcoming colors and get updates from her! She also sometimes does giveaways and has one going on right now!!  ENTER HERE by September 7 at 11:59 PM PDT!
First up we have Hippie Fest.  You can find the jar of it, HERE for $12 or the bottle, HERE for $10.  Her pictures show it differently that what my bottle looks like, but I do love how it the blue and light blues together with the silver!!  I think the Jar may be what is displayed in her pictures, but the bottles are what I am showing you today.  Either way, both options are stunning!  I plan to play around with this to find some other layering combinations.  For this mani, I used 1 coat of Color Club What a Drag with 1 coat of Hippie Fest and topped with Seche Vite.  Unfortunately, this base somewhat hides the beauty of the silver glitter in Hippie Fest, so next time I'll try a darker color and probably a creme.  Even still, I do love how the blues stand out against the silver foil!
For my next combo, I used a base of OPI Stranger Tides.  Boy do I love this creme.  This is actually 3 coats topped with Seche Vite.  I wore it all day with 2 coats which is opaque, but added a third to sort of "clean it up" for pictures.  I apply this with a light hand and pretty well covered brush because it does cause a bit of streaking that sort of evens out without a lot of extra stroking on the nail.  Any bit of work to get this on is worth it, this is such a pretty neutral color!  Plus to me it is quite unique, which is why I like it!
I really wish I would have done a tape mani!  I was afraid that a tape mani wouldn't get enough shredded goodness over the nails, lol.  So I chickened out and just layered 1 coat of Patina over Stranger Tides and topped with Seche Vite.  Next time I will try a tape mani!
Patina is coming out soon from Wonder Beauty Products on Etsy.  I believe it will be a Fall release, as it is absolutely perfect for Fall!!!  It has a brownish base, as you can see it slightly changed the hue of the Stranger Tides.  I love the orange and teals together!  This polish is so beautiful!  There are shards, hexagons, and mircoglitter mixed through!  As you will see in some pictures, the smaller glitters almost remind me of sands glistening!
The shade really shows the microglitter off!! I am pleased at how this combination turned out!

I hope you enjoyed this look at two beauties from Wonder Beauty Products!! I just LOVE the shards and how they reflect the light!  I have plans for these two to try other layering combinations!  Stay tuned for a future post!
Hope you have a great day!
Much Love,

  1. I love the shard glitters. I've never seen these color combos before. Super original and they look great on you. I would love to see the first one over pink!
