Dollish Polish It's A Me, Mario!

Hello lacquered lovelies! Happy Tuesday! I hope you've all had a good start to your week. Mine's been okay. I really need someone to kick my butt in gear for getting my sciences upgraded, though! Anyone feel up to the challenge? I think I'm a bit schooled out lately... I love being in school but I'm finding this whole "self motivated studying" thing difficult haha.

Today I've got a manicure that I wore a couple of weeks ago to show with you. If you follow me on instagram you've already seen a cell phone picture of this but omg. I don't have words for how much I loved this combo on, I got lots of compliments but (more importantly imo) I couldn't stop staring at my nails!

Dollish Polish recently came out with a Mario inspired collection and I pretty much died over it. It's a lot of awesome. Sadly, DP is one of the indies that I have the worst luck actually trying to get my hands on :( I always seem to miss restocks or I get cart jacked at the last minute! This is a polish from that collection, called It's A Me, Mario!. Luigi was always my favourite brother but I liked Mario's colour combination haha. I used to get so mad playing Mario games... Peach was so useless that it made me want to punch her in the throat haha.

Anyway... Then my love Jen included this beauty in a package to me... I was so excited! Actually, this whole post is brought to you by Jen... she sent me the base polish too! Since I knew that I couldn't build It's A Me, Mario! up to opacity, I decided to try it over a lighter blue. I've been obsessed with getting my paws on the Zoya Mod Mattes trio and Jen was awesome enough to send them along too, so I decided to give Phoebe a try as a base! Thanks again, Jen <333

So, here's two coats of Zoya Phoebe with two coats of Dollish Polish It's A Me, Mario over top. I think I used one coat of topcoat here.

Gah it's so pretty! I wish the stars were easier to fish out but I didn't really try that hard until I realised that the only stars I'd managed to get by that point in the manicure were on non-photo nails haha.

What do you lovelies think? Did you play any of the Mario games when you were younger? I loved playing Super Mario World on my Super Nintendo. What a great system, I miss it. I play Super Mario Galaxy for Wii now sometimes but I always have a difficult time adjusting to using the nunchuck thing too. It makes me long for the days when things were more simple. ;)

Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful day!


  1. This is actually so adorable. I didn't want to buy any of these BUT I love it on you. And my brother always made me be Peach in Mario games/Mario Kart/Mario Party and I just wanted to be Yoshi.

  2. That was awesome of jen to send you such amazing goodies! It made a great mani.

  3. I need this polish in my life!!! My hubby is a HUGE gaming nerd and we have every system ever made from the original Atari to the Sega Genesis. My favorite game will always be a tie between Super Mario 64 and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time both for the Nintendo 64. I sounds like such a nerd now XD
    I'm on a no-buy but maybe hubby can make an exception since I don't own a single indie and it's Mario :-)

  4. I played the original super Mario when I was little. I always got stuck at the same level and then would just switch to playing Duck Hunt- which I was awesome at!

  5. This polish is so cute and adorable

  6. I have been keeping my son away from seeing that collection on purpose. hahah I know he would demand I buy them all! I love it over that light blue.

  7. This is such a gorgeous nail polish, but what I really really love it's the name, I love everything about Mario, specially Mario Party.

  8. Peaches makes me angry too! I don't like the the polish too much, but the name is awesome :D
