Knocked Up Nails I Earned A Little Blue Box

I Earned a Little Blue Box

I Earned a Little Blue Box is a Tiffany-blue-esque shade with hidden blue shimmer. I’m always a sucker for anything this shade and this is a really lovely polish. The shimmer is fairly hidden but you can see it in certain lighting. It’s a little on the more sheer side for me so I used three thin coats.

Knocked Up Nails Preggers In Pink

Preggers In Pink

Preggers In Pink is a bright pink creme. This is a classic bubblegum pink creme and the formula was really good. Just two coats covers perfectly.

Knocked Up Nails Rock-a-Bye Radiance

Rock-a-Bye Radiance

Rock-a-Bye Radiance is a metallic shimmery cranberry/fuchsia. This is a very saturated, intense shade and you only need two coats. It has a great formula and is super shimmery.

Knocked Up Nails

I’m impressed with these three shades. I think the colors are fun, the fact that they are 5-free is great and the formula was really good. I am interested to see future collections from the brand!

You can find Knocked Up Nails on their website and they are $10.00 each for .50 oz.
