Jindie Nails Burrrberry, Honey Blue Blue, and Tried & True

Hi everyone! I have a few more Jindie Nails swatches today. I think like a lot of people I've fallen in love with the creamy "crelly" based polishes that Jen of Jindie Nails makes. And I'm excited because not only do I still have several more to try out, but I also have another order on the way, which includes a few new releases. Eeek! I know these polishes have been getting a lot of exposure but hopefully you won't get bored if I show them as well. :)

Jindie Nails (L-R): Burrrberry, Honey Blue Blue, Tried & True

The three polishes that I have today are from the Winter Chic collection. Well, Burrrberry and Honey Blue Blue are part of the collection, while Tried & True is very similar but not officially part of it. The formula for all three is very much the same so I'll discuss that at the end.

Burrrberry: This is a smooth white crelly (in between a creme and a jelly) with a complicated mixture of glitter - pale/medium blue and pink hex glitter in three different sizes, pale blue circle glitter, tiny pink and blue glitter, as well as some small wine-coloured hexes. The predominant colour scheme is pink and pale blue. I love how this has the feel of winter - I could see myself owning scarves or hats in these colours - but it really could be worn year round.

Honey Blue Blue: I love the vibrancy of this blue polish! It's a cerulean blue crelly with blue and green medium hex glitter, green square glitter, and tiny glitter, probably in blue and green. It's a bit more simple than Burrrberry, but still very lovely.

Tried & True: This is similar to Burrrberry, but with a slightly different glitter combination. You may find you don't need both. Me personally, I love each one and definitely plan to keep both in my collection. This is also a white crelly with larger silver and blue hexes, fuchsia squares, small purple hexes, and pink circles.

Formula and application: For all three polishes I used two coats with Seche Ridge Filling base coat and Seche Vite top coat. The base coat is a sheer white, and I like to wear it under less opaque polishes so that I don't have too much VNL. These polishes are packed with glitter, and there's no issue of getting enough glitter on the nails. Rather you have to be careful not to get too much. I find that these polishes need a good shake before applying so that the glitter is mixed up and to prevent it from getting too thick. I know I added a bit of thinner to Honey Blue Blue and Burrrberry, but I tend to do that often with these kinds of indies.

I think what makes these polishes so appealing is that they are sheer enough that you have the gorgeous look of glitter suspended in a creamy base. But they are not so sheer that you need 4-5 coats just to get decent coverage. I've very happy with all three and would highly recommend them.

I bought these polishes from the Jindie Nails Etsy store. The store tends to only open for restocks, and stuff sells out fast, so check the Jindie Nails Facebook page for updates. Jindie Nails is also available through Llarowe and Mei Mei's Signatures.

What do you think? Do you like Jindie Nails? Do you own any of these polishes?

  2. Ahhhh, I love the white-based ones! Burrrberry is my favourite. It looks so yummy like berries and yogurt :) Do they dry to a semi-matte finish? :o

    1. Brittney, yes, I have to agree with you, the white-based ones are my favourite as well. But it's hard to answer your question about the finish. I didn't note anything interesting in my notes, and all swatches are with Seche Vite. But it may be the the lighting that makes them look semi-matte. I notice it does that to most of my photos.
