Pear Nova

Hi everyone! Over the past few weeks I have been through such a whirlwind, perhaps the most change I've experienced in my adult life. A few months ago me and my family decided to move back up north to be closer to my mother due to the kids and other health related issues. Well at the time I didn't know I'd be transitioning into a new role at work all at the same time. Orchestrating a move 1,000+ miles with 2 kids was quite the challenge for us. In any event we did it! So that will explain my absence here, obviously nails were the least on my mind.

Today's post is on a brand a few ladies "made" me purchase through their lovely swatches from Instagram. Pear Nova is a Chicago based, runway inspired, 3 free nail lacquer. The line consists of creme polishes that all apply very opaque, nearly in one coat. All these polishes were consistent in formula, all 2 coats with no top coat and self leveling. The polish was a little thick but nothing difficult to work with. I also liked the brush on these which allowed perfect application.  These are definitely some of my favorite creme polishes I've ever tried.

Blue Magic is a periwinkle blue creme, probably my favorite of the bunch. 

Rolling Stoned is a dark gray creme. 

Heavy Meadow is a golden yellow creme. It was almost jelly like but not quite. Great formula for a yellow polish!

Uptown Grit is a butterscotch creme. 

Lastly Pink Is The Flavor is a dusty pink creme, another favorite of mine. The accent finger is my OPI Muppets World Tour. 

You can find Pear Nova here and they retail for $11.50 each.
