I have recently realized I have very few "Spring" colors among my indie collection. I've been looking forward to Spring for awhile (fun fact: it's my favorite season!), so I felt the need to put something Spring-y on my nails. Read on for more info about the combo I chose!

Mpolish is a press sample. All other polishes purchased by me.
I was not compensated for this review. All opinions are my own.
Meanwhile, I have a few swatches for you of a Bear Pawlish as well as some nail art. I'm a bit sleepy right now, so I'll try to keep this short.
This is It's A Tiny Shoe by Bear Pawlish. This is a stunning turquoise/jade blue polish with a linear holo effect. It also contains green/blue micro glitter. The combo is breathtaking.
|Bear Pawlish It's A Tiny Shoe, two coats no topcoat|
If there's one thing Tennessee, the maker of Bear Pawlish, does well it's holos. I think that's part of the draw to her brand. Every Bear that I own is just riveting, be it holos, multi chromes, glitters, everything!

This was two easy, smooth coats topped with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top quick dry topcoat. I used It's A Tiny Shoe over a coat of Qtica Natural Nail Growth Stimulator and one coat OPI Nail Envy. I had zero staining issues with It's A Tiny Shoe.

I've seen several of my friends pairing bold blues/teals with MPolish Fresh Perspective, so I figured I'd jump on the bandwagon. What. A. Pair!!
|Bear Pawlish stamped with MPolish Fresh Perspective|
I used my Uber Chic Beauty plate 1-01 for stamping, and MPolish Fresh Perspective from the newest collection, which is available now in single full sized bottles in limited quantities on her website.
|Even Cindy was looking pretty good! ;-)|
This was a welcome mani after a humongous fail on the night that I did these. It was so late, and I almost gave up completely. I'm so glad I didn't, and that I chose this combo at the last minute.

A little bit about MPolish if you haven't seen any of my previous posts. MPolish is a new indie stamping polish that is five-free, cruelty-free, and made in the USA. The color selection of MPolish is fantastic and the polish is so worth every penny. Since they are five-free (and have almost no scent to them, by the way!), you need to work a little faster than with standard stamping polish since it tends to dry a little quicker. But seriously, they are amazing and can also be used in other techniques besides just stamping, such as water marbling or even as a base polish (although they are thick since they are intended for stamping).
How do you recoup from a failed mani? Do you have a tried and true that you fall back on? Or do you skip nail art and just stick to a single polish mani?
