Sation Beyond Bubblegum Pink




Any time I wear pink–especially super hot pink–I tend to get a lot of compliments.  Maybe it’s because neon colors really POP on my dark skin? Either way, I love how hot pink look on me and some of my favorite lipsticks include NARS Funny face, Illamasqua Eurydice and MUFE #36–yep, all eye-searing pink. Yesterday my friend coaxed me out of my sickness coma and we went out to get some lunch and then we went to Michael’s to pick up some melmers. They are currently BOGO Free so how could I resist?  You may recall that early this year I had some massive blog sales where I think I probably got rid of close to half my stash–I think I sold over $1,000 in nail polish!!!  In 6 months, I think I have pretty much bought back the quantities I sold off and then some! That’s pretty scary and I’m in a delusional frame of mind where I am telling myself that the reason I have acquired so much new polish is because I’ve gotten a lot of them for review. *cue delusional music*

Anyway, today I was working on putting together my two new melmers and also wanted to consider a new way of organizing my stash. Well, I saw this  pretty pink polish and couldn’t resist taking it out for a spin. Sation Beyond Bubblegum Pink is a beautiful bubbleyum-bubblegum pink with a lot of shimmer in it which makes it look a little frosty. Let me show you what I’m talking about:

Beyond Bubblegum Pink 3


This polish so full of shimmer that it does have a sort of frosty look to it.  It is a very bright pink and it acts like a neon in that it dries to a satiny finish. I applied 3 thin coats for the swatches above and did not top coat it.

Miss & Makeup is a super fun glitter topper from their I Love Miss-self glitter collection. There is something about that shard black glitter that really makes this look unique. It’s a really easy glitter to apply and I didn’t have trouble getting a nice even coat. I did notice that I had to shake it up real well because the glitter in the bottle had settled.


So what do you think of this pink polish? Is it something that you would wear? How do you feel about bright pink polish and make-up in general?  I am still super sick so I’m not looking forward to going to work tomorrow.  My throat is bugging me a lot and my cough is really dry and painful. I am probably going to have to drink some hot tea at work tomorrow to soothe my throat and be able to get through work. Why did I have to get sick just as the summer season is starting? It’s supposed to get outrageously hot in the next few days so I’m dreading it big time. Thanks for catching up with me today, and I’ll talk to you soon!

      I feel the same right now. My chest and throat are hurting so bad right now from coughing that I don’t even know what I’m going to do tomorrow at work. 🙁 At least I had that pretty polish to keep me company in my sickness. lol

          I hate shots so I totally understand you. I rarely get involved with needles unless I’m getting my blood drawn for tests and that is a nightmare because they can never find my veins. Ugh…it makes me want to cry just thinking about it.

    I hope you feel better soon. I would sooo wear that pink polish! That is gorgeous. It looks like a pink satin ribbon. I adore bright vivid colors in makeup and in polish. My favorite eyeshadow palette is the Urban Decay Vice pallette due to the bright pink, blue, green and other wonderful colors.

    1. 30 June, 2013 at 2:09 am

      I never got the Vice palette but my favorite UD palette is the Deluxe Shadow Box. I’ve used the crap out of that one. I have a lot of UD palettes which is a waste considering I barely even wear eyeshadow anymore. LOL

      I love this polish…it is so bright and cheery!

      It is unique, right? It’s that silver shimmer, I think. It just makes it look so different from all the other pinks I have.

    You are the main reason why I bought my very first hot pink lipstick. The first time I ever came across your blog was a post you had with lots of lip color spam. I ended up buying MUFE 36 and a neutral Too Faced as well. Since then I’ve accumulated a respectable lipstick collection even though I never really wear them. I love hot pink nail polish too, it even makes my pale skin look tan which is great. And HOLY CRAP lady, $1000??!! At least you made some of your money back…but then spent it on more polish lol. I guess its better than hoarding everything.

      And when I say $1,000, it was probably more. I sold so much stuff…unbelievable! Even more unbelievable is that I probably bought it all back at this point and then some considering my stupid habit of wanting high end polishes now.

      Well, I am glad to hear that I not only enable in the nail department but also in the lipstick department as well. lol

      That polish sure is unique. I don’t have anything else similar to that except for another Sation glitter topper from the same line except that it’s green.

    I wonder if it would be possible to ask you to do a tutorial on how you get your edges (near the cuticle) SO neat? I have acetone and brushes etc, but I can never get them looking so perfect. I’ve been doing nail art for a couple of years and this is the ONE thing I feel like I can’t get quite down :(. <3

    1. 27 June, 2013 at 2:33 pm

      Don’t hate me, but I don’t always have to do any clean up. Some polishes really cooperate and have a great formula so they are easier to control. For example, with this polish, I didn’t have to do any clean up. I usually just take my loaded brush and place it close to the cuticle edge and then press it down closer to the cuticle without touching the cuticle and then I drag the polish brush sideways and then up the nail edge. Polishes that are runny and watery always need clean up so I can definitely do a tutorial. I have found that a good brush is essential!

    I love this color!! Totally looks like pink frosting 🙂 I don’t know if I’ve ever seen Sation brand before, I’ll have to track it down.

      It does look like frosting! I Think these are definitely worth looking for because Sation puts out some really cool polishes.

    It is hotter than Satan’s nether regions here too and I’m over it. By Tuesday it’s supposed to be up to 106!!! I’m going to melt. I really like hot pink polish, it’s the only kind of pink that really excites me, but I could never wear pink lipstick. I would like to, cuz I love it on other people, and it seems like it would be so fun, but I feel like I look kinda ridiculous in obvious makeup. 🙁

      Just because I have medium to dark skin, I talk myself into thinking that I can wear EVERY SINGLE COLOR out there. I know it’s not true, but I tend not to care. The hot pink lipstick is definitely something I’ll never give up…I’ll be like 90 and have tacky pink lipstick on my dentures. I rarely wear anything nowadays just because I have to wake up at the buttcrack of dawn and couldn’t care less about what I look like as I stumble to work. The Nyquil hasn’t taken effect yet….

  13. 1 July, 2013 at 6:43 am

    I agree with everyone that pinks or brights look really good on me, that and I just love super girly colors! lol I am in love with this pink and I need it in my life!!! I also love how fun that topper is! wow ! <3

    I know exactly what that delusional music sounds like, hahaha.
    I love the hot pink. I just love when you wear it because YOU love it so much, hahaha.
    I had that topper in my hot little hands in several stores, but then decided to respect my birthday wishlist. It’ll still be mine someday!
