While shopping for some new polish I was directed to a brand called Nailtini and their “cocktail” approach to beautiful nails. Nailtini gives us 29 straight up colors, 2 mixers, 9 toppers and 7 garnish nail designs to shake it up and make the ultimate nail cocktail! The straight up colors can be applied alone but to shake things up a bit you can add a mixer like Cream to lighten a shade or Espresso to intensify a shade. There are topper coats which add a bit of a special effect, for example Blue Flame adds a sheer blue iridescence. There is also a garnish book where you can create nail art with stencils, the book includes 7 designs (see below).
Here is one of the toppers:

I am loving how this topper has totally transformed my polish into a totally different color. Note to self: Buy more toppers! The best part about giving myself an at home manicure is that these polishes do not have that awful smell that some other polishes have. Nailtini lacquers do not contain formaldehyde, toluene or dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and Nailtini products are not tested on animals. Welcome to mixing up your custom made manicure cocktail!
Nailtini retails for $12/bottle and is available online and through salons and drugstores nationwide.
