NOTD - Starry night in Provence

Steve from NailPolishCanada braved a gaggle of giggly, makeup obsessed girls to attend our 2nd annual Vancouver Beauty Blogger meetup and I'm so glad he did because now I've discovered one more place where I can feed my nail polish disease!
Let's face it, Canadians don't have access to half the cool polish brands that Americans do, so we resort to e-tailers who either jack up prices or charge us an arm and a leg to ship to our poor deprived igloos. changes all that. It is Canadian owned (in Vancouver of all places! OMG! West Coast has something cool!), has reasonable prices and, best of all, free shipping on all order over $29.
For example, Zoya (A.K.A. They Who Won't Ship To Mooseland), retails for $8 on the Zoya website, NailPolishCanada's Zoya prices range between $5.50-$8.75!
Zoya, CND, Spa Ritual, OPI, China Glaze, Color Club, Essie, Seche Vite, LCN (the magnetic ones!!), and Soulstice Spa are just some of the brands they carry.
Steve kindly provided each of us with 2 Soulstice Spa polishes to try out.
Soulstice Spa Nail Colours are vegan, cruelty free and 3 free. Usually this culminates in gloopy polish (*cough* Sparitual *cough*) but the two that I tried are amazingly smooth and easy to control.

Provence is a light lavender along the lines of CG Light As Air. It has a jelly finish, and is a 3 coater. I did not experience any cuticle pull and both polishes dried glossy and wore for 4 days with minimum tip wear.
Soulstice Nail Colours are $8.50 each on NailPolishCanada
Provence on its own:
I threw on a coat of NYC Starry Silver Glitter (micro silver glitter with larger pink and blue hex glitter in a clear base) to make this NOTD more festive xD
Thank you for introducing me to an awesome new brand NailPolishCanada!


  1. Pwetty!!! Although I'm not good with 3 coaters. 2 coaters are maximum for me. I always smudge it between the 2nd and 3rd coat or leave a finger print in it or something like that....irritating as heck.

  2. Provence is such a lovely color! I like the Starry Silver Glitter too, but I find it a little bit too sparse.

    Hope you're having a nice day! We have a thin layer of snow this morning! :o How's the weather in Vancouver?

  3. Jelly nails finishes are my favorite!! This color is so cute~ love the top polish as well.

  4. I love this look! I can get enough of glittery finishes!

  5. Provence is soooo pretty! <3

    Let's be real... Not only is it hard finding igloos, but the delivery men also have to fend off polar bears and wolves. Delivering to Canada is HARD, yo!

  6. This looks so much better with glitter on it, IMO (I did the same with mine). Kind of plain without!

    xo, alison*elle

  7. Gorgeous!! Love that shade of purple...and the glitter is so cute...

    Enjoyed your NYC pix with Tine2, too!!

  8. ohhh pweeetty!! my fave color evarrrrr :D such a smooth & opaque formula. it's the biggest disappointment on earth when a pretty creme polish applies watering & sheer =_=

    was this prior to torturing your nails w gels? if not, your nails recovered awfully quick!

  9. Love this! It's a starry night over the lavender fields for real x

  10. love the jelly finish! i always have a soft spot for nail polishes that give off that sort of finish ^^ the colour is a lovely choice too!

  11. The glitters add such a cute finish! *^_^*
