Glisten & Glow ~ December 2021 PPU

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all! today I have for you Jill’s offerings for PPU. The theme this month is Cozy Vibes. Jill was inspired by the Danish word of Hygge and the life that it represents. The warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people. Let’s check it out.

Hygge Life is an ivory base with pink undertones loaded with iridescent flakes. Holy mother this is gorgeous. My pics don’t do this one justice. The brush shot right above is close! It’s so soft and full of flakes. “A perfect polish for the everyday/work friendly life that is a palette cleanse from the bold and vibrant. Just a simply delicate and refreshed manicure vibe.” I prefer the bold and vibrant but I really enjoyed this polish. I wore it for a few days! It is flakie dense but it still applies nicely. I used 3 thin smooth coats for my swatches.

Also up for grabs is Glisten & Glow Top Coat. Glisten & Glow Top Coat is an award winning fast dry glossy top coat. The benefits are :

  • 2-4 minutes or less and your nails will be dry, durable, long lasting with days or weeks of no tip wear or chipping!
  • Crystal clear, shiny, glossy “wet/gel like” appearance.
  • Seals and evens glitter and flakie polishes.
  • Non smearing for stamping manis.
  • Glows under black light.

If you haven’t tried Glisten & Glows Top Coat, your life is just not complete. It will change your whole nail game! I have been buying top coat from Jill since 2013 I think and it’s the only top coat I have purchased since. I actually just grabbed some from her Black Friday sale. I promise you won’t be disappointed!!

PPU is open from December 3rd at 11am EST until December 6th at 11:59pm EST. Set your alarms so you don’t miss out.

Hygge Life: $13 – NO CAP

Top Coat: $7.50 – NO CAP

Glisten & Glow ~ Holiday Holos

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all! How has your weekend been so far? My weekend starts on Sunday so it’s close! Today I have for you some more holos from Glisten & Glow! This is a super non traditional color scheme but it really just works. Are we ready to jump right in? Ok here goes.

Sleigh My Name is a Ceylon blue holo polish with added holo micro flakies. Did you sing this name? I did. And it’s not the only one you’ll sing either lol. This blue is so pretty and vibrant. I just love a good holo<3 I used 2 smooth coats for my swatches.

All The Jingle Ladies is a plum purple holo polish with added holo micro flakies. Purple is a weakness of mine. I saw somewhere recently that purple is the best selling polish color. I definitely believe that! This is no exception. A perfect purple holo. Great formula as well. I used 2 coats for my swatches.

Let’s Take An Elfie! is an ultramarine blue holo polish with added holo micro flakies. Yes. Another blue. It’s similar but definitely different. This one is like water. It looks like it moves on the nail because of the depth of holo with the added flakes. Just fantastic. I used 3 thin perfect coats for my swatches.

It’s Simple Claus & Effect is a raspberry holo polish with added holo micro flakies. This one is my favorite of the bunch. I feel like the holo is just stronger in this polish. It’s probably the base color but either way it’s gorgeous. Just like the rest, this polish has an immaculate formula. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

Now for the deets. Each polish will be $11.50 or you can buy the quad for $40! Great price for holos! Now, if you bought the Fall Holos and the Halloween Quad, you now have a full rainbow of holo polishes. Including black! If you didn’t get the Halloween Quad you will not have the black but you will still have a full rainbow. I am super happy to have the full rainbow. Don’t miss out on that! All of these polishes I just mentioned are one batch and done type polish so if you don’t have them all jump on it quickly before they are gone for good. I hope the rest of your weekend is relaxing! Thanks so much for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ Shades Of Shenandoah Collection

*These polishes were provided for review

Hello! I hope you are all doing much better than I. It’s been a rough 2 weeks I can’t even begin to tell you! Let’s bring all the happy by checking out this new collection from Jill at Glisten & Glow! This 4 piece collection is called Shades Of Shenandoah. Four totally unique shades that you’ll have to have. Shall we?

Visions In The Valley is a clear based polish jam packed with both multi chrome and iridescent flakes that shift from green/blue/gold/purple/red/pink. Yowza is this one stunning. You can use this as a topper but it is pretty flakie dense so expect a real good coating. I also highly suggest grabbing some Glitter Grabber when you order because this polish is so flakie filled. Formula is super smooth. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

Stalagmites & Stalactites At Skyline is a medium lilac polish loaded with color shifting shimmer that shifts from copper/gold/green/blue. I love shimmer polish so much. Especially when it’s this shifty. Every move of your hand shows different colors. The formula on this one was just impeccable. 3 thin coats for my swatches.

Limestones At Luray is a rich caramel jelly polish with added holo micro flakes and loaded with color shifting multi chrome flakes that shift from purple/red/orange/yellow/green. This is the most unique polish I have ever seen. EVER! I honestly wasn’t sure about it when I first saw it. But once I put it on I fell in love. The flakes and the depth and just everything about this polish is fantastic. You will need this one. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

Sunsets On Skyline Drive is a medium sky blue holo crelly loaded with rainbow iridescent flakes. This one is my favorite! Wait til you see it matte!! The flakies make this polish. The base color is also just gorgeous. This one is flakie packed so again, don’t forget to grab some Glitter Grabber. This polish could probably be fine with 2 coats but of course I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

How do feel about these shades? I love them so much! They are a one batch and done type situation so these will not be restocked when they sell out. I suggest you grab them early. Each polish is $11.50 or you can buy the quad for $42. If you buy only one I suggest Limestones At Luray. You’ll never see another polish like it. These polishes are available now so don’t wait! I hope you enjoyed these polishes as much as I did. I hope you have a fantastic week coming up! Thanks for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ November 2021 PPU-IPU

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey! It’s that time again! PPU is back with a theme of Game Night. I’m super excited for this month. My husband has our only income so I don’t get to purchase polish often but I have my eye on something specific this month and I already got the OK!! Today I have something for you to add to your wish list. Let’s check it out.

On Thin Ice is an icy powder blue polish loaded with color shifting shimmer that shifts between orange/red/yellow/green. The inspiration for this polish comes from when Jill was a child. “As kids we love snow days! After we had gone sledding and made snow angels, we would come inside to warm up with hot coco and play our favorite winter game of Thin Ice! Always trying to make sure that our marble wasn’t the one that “broke the ice”.” I love this polish. It is so soft and pretty. The shimmer just jumps off of the nails! It’s so prominent. And it’s so shifty. Of course my pics do it no justice… You will just have to buy it so you can wear it yourself!! I used 3 thin coats of perfection for my swatches.

Now for the ever popular Glitter Grabber. Glitter Grabber is an amazing product that gets applied after any glitter or flakie dense manicure is done and it’s fully dry before your top coat. It aids in creating a smoother surface for your top coat or matte top coat all while “grabbing” that extra texture.

Directions: after you have applied your glitter or flakie polish and have fully let it dry, you add a nice layer of Glisten & Glow’s Glitter Grabber on top. It is a shiny formula upon application and will add that extra layer of protection and smoothing action to that texture. Allow to fully dry then add your glossy or matte top coat! It works at grabbing that extra texture that glitters or flakies can have!

Glitter Grabber has quickly become a holy grail product in my arsenal. As a swatcher I grab for it often and it never disappoints. You can also add a coat of Glitter Grabber under any glitter or flakie polish for easier removal. There are so many uses for this product. I highly recommend that it makes it’s way into your wish list then into your cart!! Just look at what it can do. My pics, in order, start with no Glitter Grabber. Then with 1 coat of Glitter Grabber. Then with 1 coat of Glitter Grabber with 1 coat of top coat.

Now for the deets. Polish Pickup will be open from November 5th 11am EST until November 8th 11:59pm EST

On Thin Ice: $13 NO CAP

Glitter Grabber: $8 NO CAP

Make sure these make it to your wish list then your cart. Luckily Jill likes everyone to get what they want so no caps!!I hope you all have a great rest of the week. Thanks so much for stopping by ❤

Dr.’s REMEDY ~ Breast Cancer Awareness 2021

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all! Today I have for you some pink before the month is over! I am behind because these were not delivered very quickly. The mail is just crazy and it’s about to get worse so strap in! Holidays are coming up quick. Anywho, for now we are bringing the pink! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Dr.’s REMEDY has put together a few shades to support the cause! Let’s check them out!

PROMISING Pink is a very soft pink crelly polish. I want to love this one but I just can’t. The formula was not the best and it was very unforgiving to my nail ridges. You can see clearly in pics that it did not cover the nail fully. I have never had this happen before. Especially after 3 coats of polish! This polish would be ok at 1 coat for a sheer wash of color. I used 3 coats for my swatches.

POSITIVE Pink is a bubblegum pink creme polish. This one was nice to work with. Nice creamy formula that applies beautifully. You could use 2 coats but I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

PLAYFUL Pink is a bright pink creme polish with added silver shimmer. This one was my favorite. Great coverage and a wonderful formula. This is a definite 2 coater. I used 3 coats though because I’m just weird like that.

Uniquely formulated with organic ingredients, nourishing
vitamins— and without toxic additives commonly found in
traditional polish—our podiatrist-formulated lacquers won’t
just make your nails look great, they’ll make you feel great
about wearing them. That’s because for the month of
October, Dr.’s REMEDY® is donating 10% of the proceeds
from the sale of each bottle of PROMISING Pink to Living
Beyond Breast Cancer.

This October, treat your nails to the ultimate feel good
manicure, compliments of Dr.’s REMEDY®. In honor of
Breast Cancer Awareness month, Dr.’s REMEDY® is proud to
partner with Living Beyond Breast Cancer, an organization
dedicated to expanding the resources and improving the
lives of women living with breast cancer. This month
Dr.’s REMEDY® is highlighting its Pretty in Pink Collection:
Featuring top selling Promising Pink. Complete with a
wellness-inspired name— a Dr.’s REMEDY® signature—
PROMISING was hand picked to promote positivity, serenity
and encouragement, empowering those facing the fight against
Breast Cancer to feel good about themselves and their nails.

Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC) is a nonprofit
organization whose vision is a world where no one
impacted by breast cancer feels uninformed or alone.
To strive toward reaching that vision, LBBC’s mission
is to connect people with trusted breast cancer
information and a community of support. LBBC
addresses the current needs of people affected by
breast cancer, whether they are newly diagnosed,
in treatment, recovery or living with a history of or
managing a metastatic form of the disease. Resources
are developed in collaboration with the nation’s
leading oncologists, health professionals and ally
organizations and are delivered by people who
understand the physical and emotional complexities
of breast cancer. LBBC offers its programs and
services in a variety of printed and digital formats.
For more information, visit them at LBBC.org.

I know that’s a lot to read but it’s worth it! Each polish will be $17.25. Or you can get the Pretty In PINK collection for $62 which includes the 3 pinks above, a polish remover, and a bag for your mani tools. Either way treat yourself!

Glisten & Glow ~ Halloween Quad 2021

*These polishes were provided for review

It’s finally spooky season! How excited are you??? I’m ecstatic!! Now, straight through the holidays, is my favorite time of the year. Of course Jill will have you covered! Today I am bringing you Glisten & Glow’s Halloween Quad! 4 amazing polishes that fit for the season and beyond! Let’s have a look!

Ahead Of The Carve is a vibrant orange polish with color shifting shimmer that goes from red to green to gold. This one is amazing! The color payoff is fantastic. This color just jumps off your nails. Vibrant is a great description of this color. Formula was nice and smooth. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

Mummy Of The Year is a white based crelly polish with added glitters in brown, copper, and orange. Fall in a bottle. I love the mix of glitter colors in here. Very fitting for the fall season. Formula was great even with all the glitters. I do recommend Glitter Grabber for this polish if you want that glass like finish. I used 2 coats for my swatches.

Scare Way To Heaven is a deep purple holo polish with color shifting shimmers from blue/aqua/purple and holo micro flakes. Yup! Love this one. The blue/aqua shift is just so freaking pretty. And can we just talk about the name? Jill is so clever! I used 2 smooth coats for my swatches.

Witch Way To The Candy is a black holo polish with added micro flakes. Y’ALL!! This is a 1 coat polish. Perfect formula and super pigmented. Seriously, a must have for any nail polish enthusiast! I’m wearing this right now and I just can’t get enough! It’s perfect for all year round as well. It is a 1 coat polish but I of course used 2 just because for my swatches.

That’s the Halloween Quad! What do you think? Aren’t they just perfect for the season? These polishes will be available on October 8th at 7pm EST. Each polish will be $10 or you can just buy the quad for $35! BUY ALL THE HALLOWEEN POLISH!!! I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week! Thanks for stopping by ❤

Orly ~ Wild Natured Collection

*I bought this

Hello! How are we all doing? Today I have for you the Wild Natured collection from Orly. I know these have been all over the place already but just look at them!! These colors make up the best fall lineup I have seen in a while out of a mainstream brand. There are other great collections, don’t get me wrong. This one just definitely stands out. Let’s check them out, shall we?

Blue Tango is described as a medium blue creme polish. This is a stand out color for sure! It’s deeper in darker lighting but it is so bright in the sun! Such a beautiful blue. I used 2 smooth coats for my swatches.

In Full Plume is described as a dark teal creme. I always love a good teal color. This one is perfect and creamy and everything you want in a good polish. I used 2 amazing coats for my swatches.

Wild Willow is described as a mossy green creme polish. The more I use these ugly colors the more I love them. I loved how this looked on my skin tone. I think a color like this will compliment any skin tone!! Again, I used 2 easy peasy coats for my swatches.

Lion’s Ear is described as a warm orange creme polish. To me, this polish is definitely more of a crelly. I still had a slight visible nail line at 2 coats. 3 coats would most likely make this shade opaque. Formula was nice and easy to work with. 2 coats for my swatches.

Bird Of Paradise is described as an orange creme polish. What?!?! 2 oranges? I was kinda shocked but it works! And they are both very different oranges thankfully. This one is definitely a creme base. I used 2 buttery coats for my swatches.

String Of Hearts is described as a deep fuchsia creme polish. I just adore this color. This is a flattering color for me or anybody really. This polish was super smooth and nicely pigmented. I used 2 coats for my swatches.

Don’t you just love them? They are available now commercially but I will leave you the pricing info from their direct site. Each shade is $9.50. You can get the full set for $57. If gel polish is your thing they are also available that way for $15.90 per shade or $95.40 for the full 6 piece set. My favorite thing about Orly is that their bottle are larger than the average polish bottle. I feel like I get such a great value lol. Your average full sized polish is .5 oz. Orly is .6 oz. And let’s not forget the amazing quality we all know and love from Orly. I have never had a bad polish from Orly. Since these are so popular right now, I would love to do some twin nails so let me know in the comments if that’s something you want to do. I hope you all have a great rest of your week. Thanks so much for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ October 2021 PPU/IPU

*These products were provided for review

Hello! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Hopefully this post will help you get through your Monday! I have for you Glisten & Glow‘s offering for this months PPU theme of Monsters & Mythical Creatures. Jill went a little out of the box with her Monster inspired polish. “A play on the “monster” theme! We spun revive the monster based on the famous Monster energy drink series of Rehab Monster – Raspberry Tea! It’s the only monster I want to revive each day!” Let’s check it out.

Revive Your Monster is a fuchsia jelly/crelly polish with various shapes and sizes of black, gun metal, light grey, and silver holo glitters. This one is packed with glitter so I highly recommend grabbing Glitter Grabber as well. Don’t worry though. It’s not chunky or hard to work with. It’s actually really nice to apply. I used 3 easy peasy coats along with Glitter Grabber to smooth it out and a glossy top coat.

My swatches came out a little bleached for some reason. This polish is actually brighter than what it shows here. I apologize for that greatly!

Also, for IPU Jill is bringing us a cuticle remover pen and an oil pen duo. The scents compliment each other perfectly too! The cuticle remover pen is scented in fresh picked apples (fresh, juicy apples picked right from the orchard). The cuticle oil is scented in caramel apple (tart, crispness of apples layered with the rich, creaminess of caramel). Glisten & Glow cuticle oil pen is a custom blend of jojoba oil, vitamin e oil, grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil, sunflower oil, argon oil, castor oil, acai berry extract, tea tree oil and fragrance oil. Glisten & Glow cuticle remover pen contains: distilled water, potassium hydroxide, coconut oil, and fragrance. Glisten & Glow‘s cuticle remover softens and removes excess cuticle as well as eponychium skin and comes in an easy to use twist up pen style applicator.

Cuticle Remover Pen Directions: Apply generously to the cuticle area and let sit for 60 seconds. Next, gently push back your cuticles with your favorite tool. Finally, wash hands and cuticles thoroughly with soap and water.

I hope you love it all. I know I do 🙂 The pen scents just scream fall! And the polish is just exquisite! Super pretty. These things will all be available from October 1st at 11am EST until October 4th at 11:59pm EST. Set your alarms!

Revive Your Monster: $12.50 per bottle NO CAP

Cuticle Pens Duo: $12 per set NO CAP

I hope you all have a great week ahead! Thanks so much for stopping by ❤

Dr.’s Remedy ~ The Comeback Collection

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all. Today I’m bringing you some new stuff from Dr.’s Remedy! “Believe it or not, fall is fast approaching. And we are so here for it. If ever there was a time to embrace the optimism of a fresh new season it’s now. As social calendars start to repopulate and we gently embrace a hopeful and more energized way of life, Dr.’s Remedy Enriched Nail Care is right on cue-with two empowering new shades that encourage us to live in the moment. Introducing LYRICAL Lilac and SERENITY Sage. Stylish and neutral at the same time, each one of these comforting, cream-based colors perfectly capture the-cautiously-upbeat vibe of the moment.” Let’s check them out!!

LYRICAL Lilac is a flirty, full coverage pale purple creme which has light mauve undertones that flatter all skin tones, making it the perfect fall pastel. They are not kidding when they say full coverage. This could easily be a 1 coat polish. The formula is fantastic! I of course used 2 coats for my swatches. For my stamping I used the shade BRAVE Berry.

SERENITY Sage is an earthy grey-green creme polish that walks the line between edgy and neutral – a guaranteed win for a long awaited night out. I love this one so much. Green has been my it color for a while now and this did not disappoint at all. Again, this could be a 1 coat polish. Formula is nice and buttery and just all out flawless. I used 2 coats for my swatches. For my stamping I used shade MAGNETIC Midnight.

I also threw together a quick look using both shades and again, stamped with MAGNETIC Midnight.

Now that you have seen the awesomeness, let me tell you a little about Dr.’s Remedy. “The brainchild of two New York-based board certified podiatrists, Dr. Adam Cirlincione and Dr. William Spielfogel, Dr.’s REMEDY was designed with nail health in mind. Formulated with organic, naturally healing ingredients such as vitamins, kale, cactus and ginseng extracts, along with wheat protein, tea tree oil, lavender, biotin and garlic bulb extract, Dr.’s REMEDY helps heal, protect and ward off infection.

Glisten & Glow ~ Fall Holos 2021

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all!! It’s almost fall. I can’t wait for the nice weather fall brings. I live in the north east and I still can barely stand the heat! I can’t imagine what it’s like in the lower states. I would fully melt lol!! How about you? What’s your favorite weather? Fall is bringing us some gorgeous polish. Let’s check out Glisten & Glow’s line up for fall!

For The Love Of Gourd is a harvest yellow holo polish with added holo micro flakes. I’m not the hugest fan of yellow polish. The formula is usually pretty picky. BUT this one is perfect! Super smooth and self leveling. No formula issues whatsoever! I used 3 buttery coats for my swatches.

Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice is a burnt orange holo polish with added holo micro flakes. This shade of orange is my favorite. I mean, I love me a good neon orange but this is much more wearable through all 4 seasons. Especially fall! It is the perfect pumpkin color. I would recommend 3 thin coats for this polish. I used 2 regular coats for my swatches but I should have added that 3rd coat!

Fall Aboard! is a tomato red holo polish with added holo micro flakes. Again, this shade is just perfect for fall. It’s a softer red polish. Not as harsh as a fire engine color. This will compliment any skin tone. I used 3 perfectly smooth coats for my swatches.

Leaf Me Alone is a medium green holo polish with added holo micro flakes. This one is my favorite. The perfect green for anything!! Just an all over exquisite polish. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

So, on a scale of 1 to 10 how much do you love them and why is it a 10!? Kidding!! But seriously, I can’t think of any other collection that screams fall like this one. These 4 colors are the epitome of fall. Each polish will be $11.50 or you can buy the set for $40! Who doesn’t love to save a little?? The Fall Holos will release tonight, September 17th 2021 at 7pm EST. Don’t miss out on these. Between this set and the upcoming holiday collection you will have a full holo rainbow! I’ll show this soon on my IG! This is a limited collection y’all so please don’t miss out! I hope you all have an amazing weekend! Thanks for stopping by ❤
