Jindie Nails "JINDIE-Pendendence" Review

So tomorrow is the first of June, which means there's just over a month to one of my favorite holidays- Independence Day (a.k.a. the Fourth of July). I think I have so many childhood memories that have stuck with me that make this holiday such an awesome one. I remember every year our city park (it has a lake in the middle) would fill with vendors selling their wares. There would be booths lined up around the lake with all the best summer foods- hot dogs, burgers, teriyaki sticks, elephant ears, ice cream and popsicles. I can almost smell the scent of those soft, sweet elephant ears drifting through the air. 
The night of the Fourth, the grassy areas would be packed with people from my town, and even those from miles and miles away. Everyone would lay out their picnic blankets (and some people would even pitch a tent and camp to get a good spot) to make their territory and make a day of enjoying the activities of the lake while waiting for the firework show to start. When dusk came and everyone settled, you could feel the excitement buzzing heavy in the air.
Not soon after the day dimmed, the show began. Patriotic tunes would play proudly as the stunning firework display lit up the night. The grandeur of the pyrotechnics never disappointed, and we were left ooh-ing and ahh-ing long after the show was over. Oh, how I miss home.

What were we talking about? Ah yes, nail polish. Ahem.
The beauty I have for you today is from Jindie Nails. It is a limited-edition item, and I know this particular polish was very popular. I am not sure if she sold out of this all-in-one formula, but I believe she has a similar topper (top coat) in the works.
This color is cleverly named "JINDIE-Pendence," and boy, is it a looker.

Here are a few other pictures to give you an idea of all the different types of glitter in this baby:

As you can see, everything is suspended in a milky white crelly base. You do have to fish just a tiny bit to get some of the larger glitters from the bottle to your nail, but I didn't find it too difficult to get what I wanted. Here is a swatch of just one coat so you can see how build-able this polish is:

I would say you could have a decent opacity at three coats, but it might be wiser to do white base coat at the start. Also, as I mentioned above, if you want to use these glitters with a different color, I believe she will be making a top coat with this glitter set. You can check out her Facebook page for more information.

Have a happy Fourth everyone! I would love to hear your holiday traditions and this year's plans in the comment section below!

*Nope, not affiliated with Jindie Nails either. She makes some great glitter polishes though.
