It's time to take a look at the summer collection from Happy Hands Nail Polish! This collection, named Beachy Keen, is inspired by the beach, hot days and cool drinks. There are also some exciting things coming up for Happy Hands so be sure to check the end of the post for details. Let's get started!
Beachy Keen is the star of this collection, in my opinion. This red matte glitter topper is accented with gold, pink, fuchsia, teal... it's a lot of fun and looks supa awesome on the nail. This is just one coat shown over Illamasqua Jo'Mina, a combination that I can't get enough of.
Cherry Cola is a syrupy brown jelly polish with cherry red glitters. It's pretty sheer, I used three coats here and you can still see through it a little. Of course you could layer this over something like Zoya Cola for a more opaque look! This one was a little tricky in application; try not to push the glitters around too much or it can make the base streaky. Still though, a very fun polish and it definitely makes me thirsty!
Sandcastles in the Sand is a nude jelly with gold and blue glitters. How I Met Your Mother fans will rejoice over the name -- I know I felt a little closer to Robin Sparkles wearing it. I love the addition of the blue glitters. They add an oceanesque accent to the polish without overtaking the sandy effect. Definitely beachy without being too literal. This is three coats.
Tropical Storm is another awesome polish. This slightly dusty blue jelly base brings in coral, blue, and gold glitters to create a stormy swirl. Application was good and I used three coats for the opacity shown here.
As I mentioned, Beachy Keen is my favorite in the collection, followed by Sandcastles in the Sand. Which ones are you dying for?
