Hello! How are we on this bleh Monday? I can help with that bleh! I have pretties 🙂 A 10 piece Valentine’s Day collection called Jet City Burlesque. Whether you are into celebrating or not, this collection has something for you. Holo, shimmer, glitter, texture, creme, jelly… am I missing anything? Seriously, some of the best quality polish I have tried! Have you used Joy Lacquer? I have and they are fabulous! I will say that these were all a tad thick. It could be the cold or maybe just the makers formula but either way they are workable without any tweaking! They are just thick for my taste. It’s all about preference. That being said, they are super smooth and the thickness makes for amazing stamping polish. Let’s get into the first 5!
Pink door is the first one. “Whether triple, colored or hidden, burlesque performances happen behind many different doors in the Seattle area. Every collection needs a soft pink hue and this one fits the bill as perfectly as the ballet pink slipper it was inspired by. Soothing and pleasant, Pink Door has a true creme finish and is opaque in 1-2 coats.” This is exactly right. Totally a 1 coater actually if you polish carefully. And she stamps! I used 2 coats with top coat for these pics. This one will be $10.00 USD.
I added some mermaid art with vinyls from Toadarrific Vinyls! I also used The Rhinestone Housewife also from this collection.
The next polish is also a crème! Stage Kitten: “This is the term used for the stage assistants that are responsible for gathering the performers garments after they strip out of them. The true unsung heroes of burlesque! Stage Kitten is a warm taupe, almost leaning mauve. The color looks as soft as a kitten and it’s finish is a rich true creme, similar to the color of a perfect vanilla latte.” Again, this is easily a 1 coat polish and it stamps. Joy’s crème polishes level out beautifully! This one will also be $10.00 USD.
The art I added to Stage Kitten also used Toadarrific Vinyls. Adorable unicorns using a few polishes from this collection!
Lost A Pastie! is up next. “Equal parts titillating and horror inducing, losing a pastie happens. You never know when or where but it strikes terror in the hearts of club owners in the Seattle area due to liquor laws. Lost a Pastie! the polish, is a marvelous interpretation of nude encrusted with Swarovoski crystal. It’s packed with holographic silver and gold glitter that appeals to the sparkle fanatic in all of us. It also contains a range of ultra-luminous orange, pink, teal and purple opalescent glitters. The nude polish base contains a light blue flash that subtly complements the abundant glitter effects, and creates a truly exhilarating finish. Full opacity is reached in 3 coats or you may try applying one coat over Stage Kitten, a similar nude base color. This color is optimally applied lightly for the first 2 coats, allowing it to dry slightly between each.” I used 3 thin coats for my swatch. it will have a slight glitter texture to it so make sure to use a good top coat! Also, a peel off glitter for easy removal! This will be $12.50 USD for a full size.
And again with the Toadarrific Vinyls… This time a little wintery. I used Show At Midnight for that gorgeous dark sparkle.
The Rhinestone Housewife is a favorite of mine from the Jet City Burlesque collection. “A tagline given to Hottie McNaughty, it embodies everything that Hottie stood for. A sparkly house with a quirky gem-of-a-hostess. This raspberry color is the pink cousin of our luscious red Glitter Lips polish. It sparkles and shimmers with facets just like that of it’s namesake. Silver sparks with a chrome effects are scattered in with copious amounts of pink holographic microglitter in shades of magenta, punchy pink strawberry and bubblegum. This mouthwatering shade is a must-have for pink polish lovers.” This one has a slight texture to it. You can leave it textured or add a good top coat to smooth it out. I used 2 coats with top coat to make that sparkle pop! Sooooooooo pretty! This will be available full size for $12.50 USD.
Yay!! Some stamping 🙂 I love stamping. It’s my favorite. I added some bling to the bling!
Lastly for today we have Hottie McNaughty. “A local Seattle performer, Hottie has been described as the love child of Bugs Bunny and Carol Burnett. Hottie was known for using humor and ‘giving good face’ in her performances and performing to odd and unique music. One of her signature stage colors being orange, the polish made to represent her started with a fire-y tangerine base semi-creme base. It’s scattered with orange and contrasting purple iridescent glitter ranging from medium to large sizes. The more subtle elements include blue, orange and gold microglitter shimmers, giving this crelly (creme-jelly) a fantastically cheerful finish. For optimal application it’s recommended to use 1-2 thin coats, first avoiding most larger iridescent glitters and before the final coat, close the lid and roll the bottle again. For the last coat, permit any and all orange/purple glitter to be caught on the brush, allowing it to lay smoothly on the top layer.” That is all accurate and good advice. Definitely use a good top coat to smooth the glitters! I used 2 coats with top coat. Full sized bottle of this will be $12.50 USD.
And back to vinyls lol! I used Show At Midnight to contrast the bright orange!
So, what do you think so far? I freaking love them and this is only half! This collection will be available in a mini (8 ml) set for $72.00 USD. Full sized (13 ml) will be available singly for the prices listed. They will also be available as a full size set for $110 USD. They are exclusive to The Rhinestone Housewife shop! “This collection was inspired by the Seattle burlesque scene that I was part of way back in the day. The burly-Q revival was fabulous and vibrant and I will always have fun remembering how we used to race from one gig to another on a Saturday night.” These will be releasing on February 14th, 2018.
