Blinged Pinwheels | Featuring Sation Review & Swatches

Good morning!

Are you enjoying the long weekend? I know I am! I've done more shopping than I probably should be doing and I've actually really enjoyed creating designs and editing for HL. (:

Today's post is a design I created with Sation's recent collections, I Love Miss-self (Midlife Miss-tress and Ego Friendly) and Little Horse On The Prairie (Blue Sky's the Limit). I’d been wanting to do a pinwheel design for over a year so it's about time I finally get to it!


For this manicure I used Sation Blue Sky's the Limit for the blue base. I then took a nail art brush and Zoya Logan to create the green pinwheel and Zoya Aurora. I alternated stripes with the two colors using this tutorial on Youtube as a guide. Afterwards I went over the stripes with the following coordinating glitters... Sation Midlife Miss-tress (purple) and Sation Ego Friendly (green). Lastly, I took my dotting tool and with the large end created the black dots in the middle. I finished with a shiny top coat.

You can never go wrong with glitter, I love the effect they gave in this manicure! What do you think?


Here's a closer look at the polishes used in this design...

These pictures were taken in indirect sunlight, without flash, and without topcoat unless otherwise stated.

Sation Blue Sky's the Limit. This is a beautiful, fresh sky blue creme. BSTL is not as bright as this picture suggests, maybe about a shade less. This applied super smooth and shiny, I couldn't ask for more! This is 2 coats, almost a one coater.

Ego Friendly is a multicolored green glitter with triangle, circle, and bar multisized glitter in a clear base. The base is slightly tinted green. I had trouble with the application of this polish, it's one of those that you have to literally place the glitter on. It's pretty dense in the bottle though. 3 coats.

Last, but not least, we have Midlife Miss-tress. Midlife Miss-tress is a purple/fuchsia multiglitter (black hex glitter mixed in!). This one is gorgeous, especially in person! Pictures do not do any justice. Application was okay, the polish is thick but dense enough that 1-2 coats is almost full coverage (as pictured here).

I'll have a part two of the Sation polishes I was sent and will leave an overall impression of the brand on that post. This is my first time using Sation products and I can tell you already I'm not disappointed!
