When I first saw this, I knew I had to have it. Jindie Nails Blood, Bath & Beyond is one of those colors that is red, yet there is an undercurrent of pink/purple that I love in polishes. It’s hard to find and very hard to master.
Jindie Nails Blood, Bath & Beyond also had me giggling a bit at the name, which feels like a play on Bed, Bath and Beyond in the States. I love that store and try to stay out of it because I’m notorious for coming out with 3-4 sets of new bedding if I’m not careful. I know, I have issues!
Jindie Nails Blood, Bath & Beyond is described on the site as “blood red jelly with intense violet/gold shimmer, lavender and violet metallic and holographic dots, gold metallic and holographic large, small and medium dots, red large, small and medium metallic dots and purple iridescent sparks throughout.”
I sometimes have issues with jellies – they can take a while to dry. Sometimes when glitter is thrown into the mix, the dry time doubles. I’m happy to report I had no such issues with this polish. This is three coats. I found the color to be richer and deeper with three than with two.
As always, please click on the image which will double in sizeâ€¦then click on the image again (it will triple in size!) to view the photo in its original size.
The sun washed the color out making it look a bit tomato-y. However, it did look like this on me in the sun, so it’s definitely not inaccurate.
Someone asked me why I donâ€™t use a light box â€“ Iâ€™ll be honest: I donâ€™t think light boxes truly reflect what a color is like in real life. While I think a light box can get you prettier, edgier shots of a polish, I donâ€™t think itâ€™s very realistic. So while my images may not be as richly saturated with jewel tones or deep hues, you are getting a real-life look at the polish in action.
I do, however, own a lightboxâ€¦and maybe one day you may see me using it! Until thenâ€¦
Thank you for making it this far. If you liked what you read, please share this â€“ sharing is caring!
