Lime Crime Parfait Day & Neapolitan Ice Cream Nails!

Lime Crime has released their first nail polish collection & they've done quite a good job. The packaging is fabulous, full of purple, glitter & unicorns. I love the bottle shape & the brushes are a bit wider than most which I always prefer. The collection, called Les Desserts d'Antoinette, contains a rainbow of pastel shades & an off white.  The formulas were all a little on the thick side & work much better with thick, as opposed to thin coats. Overall a very good first polish offering! Here's what Lime Crime has to say about their polishes.

7 pastel shades, inspired by confectionery delights from Marie Antoinette's table. Recklessly pigmented crème formula is rich, smooth and opaque in just two coats. Each bottle comes equipped with a flat, wide brush for superb control and flawless application. Never tested on animals. 3-Free.

Lime Crime Parfait Day is a super bright pink that reminds me of strawberry ice cream. This color isn't really my style so I gave it away to an appreciative friend. Shown here at 2 coats.


Since this color reminded me of strawberry ice cream, I thought it might be fun to try some Neapolitan ice cream nails. It was one of those ideas that came in a flash & ended up being so much cuter than I imagined. I used Lime Crime Milky Ways & Maybelline Matte Stone for the other ice cream colors. I just free-handed this one because I didn't one the lines to be too perfect. Will & I had a party at our place the night I was wearing these nails & they were a big hit!
Thanks for reading!

  4. Yummm! I used to live off of Neopolitan when I was a kid (except I always left the strawberry for my dad). I love to see manicures that I get what they are at first glance without having to read the description. Although this was a simple looking one, it's such a fun idea. <3 it!
