SoFlaJo Review and swatches of Dragon Heart

Happy Tuesday, polish lovers of the land =) or Happy Fat Tuesday, or Mardi Gras, or Day before Wednesday, or how ever you recognize today. Heck, it might even be your birthday, so if it is- Happy Birthday!

Today I have for you, some swatches and a review of  a new Indie line of polish called SoFlaJo. There are many terms floating around, that refers to hand poured nail polish- Indie, hand made, hand poured, home made, frankens,  they basically all refer to the same type of product. Indie, or hand poured is the term that I have been using, but really it's 6 of one, half dozen of the other. Sort of like how people use the terms soda, or soda pop, or pop, or even coke- to refer to canned or bottled beverages like coke, pepsi, 7-up or whatever.

Today's post features a relatively new member of the Indie community, SoFlaJo. Jody has released her first collection, called Year of the Dragon, with 8 sparkling, colour changing top coats, which can be applied over a variety of different base colours, for different effects.

 Jody packages her polishes with all kinds of fun things. And a little ribbon around the top of the polish, in a colour that co-ordinates with the colour changing effect of that polish.

The hand written labels on the bottom, show the names of the colours.

The backside of the bottles, so you can see what the colours look like.

Here, I have applied one coat of Dragon Heart over OPI Get in the Espresso Lane, and a topcoat of SV.

It applies smoothly,  and easily.

I applied it fairly thick, because I really wanted the colour changing effect to show, but you could easily get away with a thinner application.

You can easily see the colour changing effect, as well as sparkles.

Dragon Heart would look fabulous over any dark colour. It gives the illusion of being a multichrome polish, with the added bonus of giving different looks over different bases.

You can visit Jody's shop by clicking here.
Her bottles are 5ml mini's, and are $5.00 each.
Shipping with in the US, is $2 for the first bottle, and 50 cents for each additional bottle.
International shipping is $3.00 for the first bottle, and 75 cents for each additional bottle.

Thank you for looking, and check back soon for announcements about the date and time for the next Girly Bits sale, featuring a new collection.
