Jindie Nails Blood Bath and Beyond

Jindie Nails Blood, Bath & Beyond is part of Jindie’s Halloween 2013 collection

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 size…then click on the image again (it will triple in size!) to view the photo in its original size.

Jindie Nails Blood Bath and BeyondThe 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 don’t use a light box – I’ll be honest: I don’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 don’t think it’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 lightbox…and maybe one day you may see me using it! Until then…

Thank you for making it this far. If you liked what you read, please share this – sharing is caring!

À bientôt!

    […] has been described as a ‘reddened magenta jelly’. It vaguely reminds me of the base for Jindie Nails’ Blood Bath and Beyond. This jelly is lovely and squishy – so much so that I had to play with another Colors by […]
