Dollish Polish Mario Collection (Part 2)

Good afternoon, dear readers!  I apologize for the delay in showing you the rest of the Mario collection! My computer has been on its last breath, and the hubby has been frantically updating it for me so I can get a little more use out of it before it finally kicks the bucket.  I'm hoping the bandaid will hold for a little while longer until I am able get a new computer.  Now on to the swatches!  I used about one and a half coats of the Dollish Polish lacquers over the base colour: anywhere I had bald patches after the first coat, I dabbed on a little bit of glitter.  All four of these polishes dried very quickly on me.

1-Up over two coats Dollish Polish Toss My Salad
1-Up is one of the shades I was the most excited about, and it did not disappoint.  It is composed of various sizes of green and white glitters, and the simplicity of the colour scheme is what appeals to me the most.  I don't find this one to be too busy and not having a wide range of colours makes it easier to to match a wide range of base colours.  I can definitely see myself wearing this one again!

Wicked Wario over two coats Zoya Kristen
Wicked Wario is made up primarily of finer purple glitter, but it has touches of green, gold, and white to make it interesting.  I'm not a purple fan in general, but this is still a lovely polish.  I liked that I didn't have to dig around in the bottle to get any of the glitters out and the application was easy.

Toad-allyAwesome over two coats Zoya Loredana
(in the shade)
Toad-ally Awesome is as the name suggests: totally awesome!  This red, white, blue, and gold glitter polish applied like a dream and is just lovely.  When I first saw the bottle, I was slightly concerned that it would look a little too patriotic and out of place during non-holidays, but those fears were quenched.  I found it to be a fun polish I could wear just about any time.  

Dino-mite Yoshi over five coats Essie Shop Till I Drop
(in the shade)
Yes, dear readers, you did read that correctly: I used five coats of base colour before adding Dino-mite Yoshi.  I'm not going to review the Essie right now, but I wanted to let you know that it is very sheer. Dino-mite Yoshi was probably the Dollish Polish lacquer I was the most excited about, and I left this combo on my nails for several days.  Composed of various shades, shapes and sizes of green, red, orange, and white glitters, I found this one to be the hight-light of the collection.  I don't have anything remotely similar to this in my collection, and I want to wear this all the time!  I think it will look amazing over most colours, and I think it will look radically different (and have a different feel) depending on your choice of base colour.

Overall, I am very happy with these colours.  They all applied easily for me without too much effort needed to spread out the glitters, and I find them all the be fun and interesting.  The other colours can be viewed in my previous blog post.

The Mario collection can be purchased directly from Dollish Polish at big cartel or from Llarowe.  At the time of this posting, Llarowe has all of the Mario collection currently available for sale.  :)

I hope you have enjoyed my post, and I wish you all a lovely evening!  XOXO!


  1. I'm loving 1-up. Green is a hard one to pull off on certain skin tones. I think it looks great on you
