Sation Plenty of Frogs and Strumming my Nails

Hello my lovelies! It's Friday! What are your plans for the weekend? I'm probably gonna stay in and since the Gymnastics World Championships are on, I will have plenty of entertainment. Today I have another set of pictures that has been in my vault for a very long time. I've purchased 3 Sation polishes a while ago and I've only showed Oh My Oceania, so I'm showing you the other two in today's post. First up we have Plenty of Frogs.

There are not many swatches of this polish online and most of them show it more blue or minty when in fact it's a very true shade of green. I think I did a better job at capturing the shade, even though it's not 100% accurate in my photos either. This looks very similar to the color Wikipedia defines as lime green. The beauty of this polish comes from the very fine silver shimmer. Even though it's so fine, the shimmer still shows up on the nail and has no problem with being captured in photos. Here's how it looks in direct light.

Absolutely amazing! The formula of this polish seems a little sheer, but I still managed to get it opaque in 2 coats. You might need a 3rd one if you apply very thin coats or you have longer nails. Next up we have Strumming my Nails.

This might look like a plain off-white polish but I needed to show it to you because it's truly amazing. It has a great formula and can be opaque in just one coat depending on how carefully you apply it. I did 2 for these swatches because I wanted them to look really nice. There's only a tiny bit of grey in this polish, so it can be easily used as a white base for any manicure. It has become my go to white base and I've probably used it for 10 manicures since I've had it. I still love OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls as a base, but that one needs 2 coats and is a tiny bit darker so I prefer this one.

Frankly, I'm really surprised that this polish isn't getting more love in the nail community. If you are looking for a perfect base for nail art, this is the one. I always do my gradients, water marbles and whatnot over this polish. All the Sation polishes I've tried so far are really amazing and I definitely need more. If only they were  more easily available I'm sure they would be a lot more popular.

  1. Caut baza alba perfecta ca disperata, dar nici nu vreau sa cheltuiesc multi bani. De exemplu, mi-ar placea Alpine Snow de la OPI, sau White On de la Sally Hansen Extreme Wear, dar chiar nu imi permit. Deci: de unde se poate cumpara Sation si la ce pret ? Mersi frumos ! :)

  2. Din pacate nu se gaseste la noi deocamdata. Eu am luat de pe nailsupplies.us. Pretul e cam cat la China Glaze, numai ca de acolo trebuie sa comanzi mai multe oje, altfel nu renteaza cu transportul. Ar trebui intrebat la Beauty In The Bottle daca nu pot aduce. Alpine Snow nu ti-as recomanda pentru ca foarte multa lume se plange ca se aplica oribil. Cea de la Sally Hansen s-ar putea sa fie mai ok.

  3. Iti multumesc pentru raspuns ! Mai e un alb pe care il tot vad laudat pe YouTube de ProfessionalDQ - este de la Nina UltraPro, dar nu stiu sa se gaseasca pe undeva.

  4. Nina e si mai greu de gasit. Eu nu stiu vreun magazin online care sa le vanda, nici macar din America. Ea probabil le ia de la Sally Beauty Supply din UK.

  6. I can't get it here either. I ordered it from nailsupplies.us . It's really cheap and they have tons of great polishes.

    Thanks for the tip, I just went to check out the site, but the shipping is just ridiculous for me. I live in South Africa, and the cheapest shipping option is over $40.

  9. I have Plenty of Frogs and it is gorgeous! I love the shimmer in it. That white looks amazing as well. I would totally get it if I were to ever see it in person.

    Plenty of Frogs is really pretty! It's a nice shade of green and I agree the shimmer really makes it special

  11. They have a flat rate box option that can fit 9 bottles. Not sure if it's available for your country, but for me it's 28.75$. I always order one of those and then the shipping is not that expensive per bottle. And I usually order together with a friend or two so I don't have to get that many bottles for myself.

  13. It really is an amazing polish! Not sure where you can see Sation in person. I live in Romania so there's no chance for me. I just got it based on reviews.

  15. I don't see it in person many places either and I live in California. I only have a few bottles of their polishes and the only places I found them in were at the stores T.J. Maxx and Marshall's. I'll probably order them online next time.
