Today is a very big deal to us here at LOZLOSA! Your first birthday only comes around once! This has been a year of friendship, learning, growth, and most importantly – nail polish. What started out as a daily manicure update through text message between mother and daughter evolved into a blog that has allowed us to share our passion for nail polish with lovely people from all over the world. ::Excuse me for a second, I’m getting a little verklempt::
Kicking off the celebrations, I thought that a birthday manicure was in order! Chocolate and vanilla layers, pink-on-pink frosting, even a single birthday candle! For the cake layers I used Butter London – Teetotal and Zoya – Purity. For the frosting gradient I used Color Club – Blushing Rose and Illamasqua – Devotee. I then used Milani – Yellow Whiz, Color Club – Sparkle and Soar, and Cult Nails – Nevermore for the flame and wick detailing on my ring finger. Sealed up with a hearty coat of Cult Nails – Wicked Fast, I was out the door! When I look at this mani, my mind immediately travels back in time to my own past birthdays – the cakes! the candles! the sprinkles… oh, no… how could I have forgotten the sprinkles?! Luckily, we’ve got a polish to cover that!
Feast your eyes upon Pass the Sprinkles – a Chaos & Crocodiles creation, commissioned by LOZLOSA. Pass the Sprinkles is a drop-dead-gorgeous polish: metallic and holographic blue hexes, matte blue squares and hexes, brown hexes, lime green holographic hexes, gold circles, tiny copper hexes, a sprinkle of iridescent and holographic sparkle, a hint of blue and green shimmer, and scattered fuchsia circles in a clear base. If you’re thinking that there is a lot going on in this baby, you are correct! Sarey Booth-Neades (the mastermind behind Chaos & Crocodiles – seriously, if you haven’t checked her Etsy store out yet, you don’t know what you’ve been missing!) patiently took all of our favorite colors, and all of our ideas, and created a polish that is beautifully balanced and… most importantly… stunning!
Pass the Sprinkles is one of those glitter top coats that looks amazing over everything! One thin coat will give you full coverage, and a wide array of glitters – every nail ends up looking different from the last. In our opinion, this is the perfect polish for a birthday giveaway!
