Drip Drop Nail Paint Swatches & Review

Greetings & Nailutations,

I am very excited about this review on Drip Drop Nail Paints!   I assisted with naming one of the nail polishes.  Jessica (the indie owner) showed a swatch on instagram before she opened up shop & I commented that it looks like your breath on a cold winter's morning.  She ended up naming it Winter's Breath.  Drip Drop Nail Paint can be purchased here: Drip Drop Nail Paint (IG: dripdropnailpaint)

Her line is filled with crellies, jellies, glitter crellies & jellies & glitter toppers, but today's review will focus on the a few crellies & a jelly.  Drip Drop currently has a variety of crellies, jellies and an Elvis collection.  She is working on another collection currently for another awesome rock band…can't tell you which one though…my lips are sealed!

The first swatch is of a gorgeous deep dark red called Merlot.  This polish is a jelly, so it takes 2-3 coats for perfect opacity (to not see your nail lines).  This would be a perfect jelly to use & make a jelly sandwich (1 coat of jelly, a coat of your favorite glitter, followed by another coat of the jelly).  When I stuck this color on my nails, I felt vampy & like a rock star.  The swatches show without a topcoat, as I wanted to show the high shine this polish has without one.

The next swatch is of my baby….Winter's Breath.  This crisp shimmery white has teeny tiny silver holo bars that twinkle as you move your fingers in the light.  It took roughly 3 coats to get opacity, but this can also be used as a topcoat on a crelly to add dimension to the color.

The third swatch is of one polish from the Elvis collection called Suspicious Minds, which is a beautiful calming grey (or gray if you prefer that spelling) with tiny flecks of shimmer.  The photos show the color on my nails vs what is in the bottle - it almost looks like a blue-gray.  Application was a breeze as the polish was opaque in just 1 coat, but I did 2 for funnies here.  Ring finger has a color gradient of the 3 colors that will be in the giveaway.

Next is Gilberts Grapes, which is a perfect beautiful purple.  Formula was smooth and applied like butter.  I will be using this in the future for nail art….I can see using this to make delicious grapes, flowers and much more.

Lastly is Pink, which needs no explanation as to the color.  Barbie, eat your heart out because this pink is absolute perfection in color & formula.

Pros:  Wow - I love when an indie line perfects a crelly….but Drip Drop, she didn't just nail it - she blew it out of the galaxy.  The colors are spot on and the formula is amazing on them.  Creativity - collections based on music/artists?  ugh - I love it!  In addition, I cannot ignore the adorable labels.  When they arrived I died because I couldn't handle the cuteness overload!
Cons:  No cons - I can't wait to try her other colors & glitter toppers.

Good news folks!  Below is a rafflecoptor for 3 polishes from Drip Drop Nail Paints: Suspicious Minds, Pink & Gilberts Grapes.  Must be 18 or older & US mailing address.
