Sticks n' Stones May Break My Bones, but This Polish is Awesome!

I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend.  I had to work, but that is ok.  That just means that I have Monday and Tuesday off. YAY!!!

So several weeks ago, I came across a nail polish by Lynnderella called "Connect the Dots".  I immediately fell in love, but alas, it was nowhere to be found.  (except occasionally on ebay for a bazillion dollars)  Luckily for me, Cover Bands Lacquers makes a similar polish which is sold on Ninja Polish.

When I first came across the polish, it was sold out on Ninja Polish.  So, I signed up for a notification to let me know when it came back in stock.  (I also asked for a notification for Floam, but that is another post) Well, a few weeks ago, I was at Lowe's Home Improvement with my husband, and I received an email on my phone that it was in stock. Long story shorter, I had my (male) friend from Tennessee order it for me, but sent it to himself by mistake.  Well, I live in North Carolina.  I've been waiting so long for him to bring this polish and Floam to me, but he hasn't been able to.  (Steve, mail the stuff!)   Anyway, I signed up for the notification again, and now I have my Sticks n' Stones!  I totally don't mind that I'll have another bottle when Steve visits!

This polish is a mix of black and white hex, square, circle, and bar glitter in a clear base with tiny iridescent glitter.  I absolutely adore it!!!  I'm pretty sure its my fave. 

For this mani I used Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in White On and Black out with a thick coat of Sticks n' Stones on top.  I did half of each nail black and the other white, while alternating the order on each nail.  I think it looks really cool with the Sticks n' Stones because the white glitter only shows up on the black nail polish and vice versa. :)

I hope you enjoyed! Let me know what you think. :)  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I really like this look....very mod. Have you tried this polish over a color by chance? I can't seem to imagine it, but am interested in how it would turn out (like over a royal blue).
