Pop Culture Cosmetics Happy Unbirthday Swatches/Review

Welcome Back!  I have a fun polish to show you today.  This is Happy Unbirthday from Pop Culture Cosmetics.  I won this and two other polishes on one of their Facebook Giveaways.  Be sure to follow their FB Page for more offers and giveaways.

Happy Unbirthday has a black jelly base with various sizes and colors of dot glitter.  I love the color combination of this - so bright and fun!

I think this polish looks great over a dark color.  I layered it over OPI Russian Navy that I received from a great blogger friend, Emily from Una, Dos, Tres...N' Stuff. I had Russian Navy on my wishlist for so long, and she surprised me with it.  Thank you Emily - you're the best:)

I stored Happy Unbirthday upside-down before I painted my nails so the glitter was easy to reach.  This is one coat and I did a little "fishing" for some of the big dots.  I'm sure if I would have applied two coats, I would have had more of a chance of getting some of the bigger pieces and there would have been quite a few more dots on my nails.  I do like this sparse look though. Glitters like this are fun because you never know what you are going to get - each manicure is unique.

Happy Unbirthday is available on the Pop Culture Cosmetics Etsy Site for $8.50.  Be sure to check out the rest of her fun polishes too!

I hope you are having a great week.  Talk to you soon.

    2. Awwwwhahahaha!! ;-P I can't believe this post slipped under my radar until now! Whoops... I'm SO, SO glad you like RN...I had a hard time sending 'em to ya because they were so vampy and mysterious and purty in their 'lil bottles. ;-) And this jelly circle indie glitter is a fun polish! I like your idea of putting it over the shimmery goodness that is RN. :-D How terrific that you won it in a giveaway, no less?! :-D

    1. I do too....it's weird though that I only got one big blue one on each nail. I would have preferred different colors, but maybe next time :)
