WellNails - Kicked Korean Elvis in the Nards

Today I have polish from the Danish indie brand WellNails to show you.

Kicked Korean Elvis in the Nards is a white jelly base with red, black and silver glitter in various shapes and sizes.

All of the polishes from WellNails is named after an episode or a line from How I Met Your Mother. This one is no exception. The inspiration from this comes from the episode "Nothing good happens after 2 a.m." where Barney utter the words "Hey, you guys, remember the time that Lily kicked Korean Elvis in the nards?" right after Lily actually does kick Korean Elvis. In the scene Lily is wearing a  white dress with different shapes in red and black.

I can't quite decide if I like it or not. On one hand I think it looks really cool, but then I have never been a big fan of jelly bases with glitter like this. Hmm...

The formula of the polish is great and it's really easy to apply and get an even amount of glitter on the nail. I layered it over a white base and used 2 coats to give it depth. I think you can layer it on it's own as well, but it would take 3-4 coats at least, so I chose to save some of the polish instead. Drying time is ok and it dries a bit matte.

I didn't use top coat for the photos.

I thought it would look good with a matte top coat so I gave it a layer of that. In the photos you can't see much of a difference from no top coat to matte top coat, but IRL there was a visible difference. It smoothed the polish out a bit.

I kinda looks like eggshells *lol*

  1. I like the way it looks on you, although I'm not a huge fan of white based polishes as a rule. But it looks like a perfect base for some cool nail art :)

    1. Thank you :)

      I'm not a huge fan of white bases either, but I think you're right that it would be good with nail art. I must try that at some point :)
