NailMates review

Hi guys! NailMates recently contacted me to see if I was interested in doing a review, and at first I wasn't sure about that, because their site mentions gel polish and nail treatments. But then I read further and they mention glitter polish as well... now that could be interesting! By now I think most people are familiar with using aluminium foil to remove glitters (downside: having to cut it all and wrapping around your fingers), or with using a peel off basecoat (downside: not a good thing for people that are tempted to pick their nails). Could these NailMates be the thing that beats them? Let's see that further down, I've tested them on 2 manis, and I picked those polishes to test out my camera a bit more while I was at it :)

Here's what I received, 10 pink caps and a whole bunch of sponges - they're called pads but I don't want to get confuzing with cotton pads and these pads, so I'll refer to them as sponges in this post!

I went with this combo for 2 reasons: to test my camera with this color purple (which doesn't seem to be a problem if I manage to get the right settings, lol), and to test NailMates on a normal base with added glitters, because the removal of glitters with undies can be easier than with a pure glitter polish.

It's a big post, so adding a jump :)

Butterflies!

Yep, Big Bang had to be stamped too! =) I went with an image I've been wanting to try for quite some time, but just never ended up actually using it. But boy do I love it combined with Big Bang! I filled in the small holes in the image (which you can see here, in my review of the plateset) with white polish and a dotting tool, but that does show I could use more dotting practice, they all turned out way too big and uneven, haha! Ah well, I wanted to post it anyway because I think this polish and image are perfect for each other ♥
