Windestine - Androgynous

Hello!  Today I have a polish for you that I think my heart may have stopped over, Windestine Androgynous.  When the super creative creator of Windestine, Freda posted bottle shots of her upcoming collection a few months ago I knew I had to have this polish.  I was so honored when she asked me to review it.    

If you follow our blog, then you may know I've been on the hunt for a fabulous nude polish.  Not a pink nude, not a sheer nude, not a nude with too much VNL, not a yellow nude...a perfect nude.  And this, my friends, is the perfect nude mixed with teal mini glitter, teal hexes and a pinkish golden mini glitter.  Stop. It.  Now.  I.  Can't.  Take.  It.  I used Seche Clear base coat, 2 coats of Androgynous and one coat of Hong Kong Girl top coat.  I was shocked and thrilled when I had no VNL (I hate, hate, hate VNL) at 2 coats.  I'm a firmer believer in not going overboard on glitter in a glitter polish and I really think this polish had the perfect amount.  The extra pink gold mini glitter is really what put me over the edge with this polish.  I just love it so much, I can't stand it.

How can I have no VNL with this color?  Amazing. 


See that extra oomph? 



Pros:  Everything.  Perfect formula, great glitter to base ratio, love the unique color combo
Cons:  Not too much...if I had to pick something, I did't get that many large hexes on every nail but I really don't mind.
Overall:  Windestine never ceases to amaze with her creative, special polishes.  I literally want every single one of her polishes in the new collection.  

Windestine is sold on Big Cartel and while Androgynous is sold out right now, there are lots of other to pick from.  Jeweled Sand is my favorite glitter polish that I own and now I need Girl With the Best Smile!

***This polish was sent to me for an honest review.  All opinions are mine.***

    2. Welcome! If you don't love it as much as I do, I could always use another bottle. I use it often. We can work out a swap deal. :o) But you'll love it! There's no way you can dislike it.

  3. This is an amazing polish and it looks gorgeous on you. As soon as I received it, I had to try. It is gorgeous with a matte top coat finish as well.. I am on extremely active day two of this matte mani and I haven't had any wear issues along the free nail edges. I am sold on Windestine.
