*These polishes were gifted

Hello! Today I am bringing you some polish I was recently gifted. I have never been gifted anything like this so I was over the moon. The entire summer collection from Taylor Made Polish consisting of 6 full sized polishes. I’ll be showing you the brights now and the neutrals hopefully tomorrow. Let’s get to it, shall we?

Sun Kissed & Lemon Twists is a bright sunshine yellow creme polish. So fun and summery. It makes me feel fresh ya know? As with most yellows the first coat was a tad streaky. It built up nicely in 3 coats. I used 3 coats for my swatches.

Siren is a muted red creme polish. This is a pretty unique red for me anyways. I really love it Formula is great and opaque in 2-3 coats. This will depend on the length and free edge of your nails. I used 2 coats for my swatches.

Hey Babe! is a medium electric blue creme polish. This one was the best of the 3 brights. Formula was perfect in 2 coats. And I just love this shade of blue! I used 2 coats for my swatches.

This is not the only brand doing the primary color thing this summer and I am really loving it! What are your thoughts on this? These polishes are available now for $10 each, $27 for the set of brights, or $54 for the whole 6 piece collection, brights and neutrals! Links below! Have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by<3

*This polish was provided for review

Hello! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty chill. Not much going on at the moment except for this fantastic polish! Let’s jump right in because I’m super excited to show you this beauty 🙂

Polish Of The Month June 2021 is a multichrome polish that shifts from deep eggplant purple (almost black)/berry/garnet/red/orange/gold/green with added scattered holo. This is the super popular pigment that all makers are using!! I am so glad Jill has one now. I absolutely love the scattered holo in there. It gives it that little something extra. I own another brand with this pigment and I can tell you this formula is way better than the big name expensive stuff! This polish was perfect in just 2 thin coats. Not streaky at all. I used 2 coats for my swatches.

If you weren’t sure already, you need this! It’s so elegant and fun at the same time! Even better? This polish will only be $10 per bottle!! POTM June 2021 will be available on June 11th at 7pm EST. You definitely just need to be there. It’s worth more than every penny. I hope you all have a fantastic day! Thanks for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ June 2021 IPU/PPU

*These products were provided for review

Hello! How excited are we for this coming IPU/PPU?! The theme Rainbows is just a super winner. And you know someone had to come with the idea of the Rainbow Bridge. Jill brings you the best set for this theme. Let’s have a looksie!

First up is the Cuticle Remover & Cuticle Oil Pen Duo. Both products are scented in “Rainbows & Sunshine” which is a wonderful blend of fresh, clean fruity blend of orange, peach, watermelon, strawberry and cranberry. A wake me up scent of fruity fun with a touch of happy and carefree thrown in! 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. Directions: Apply generously to the cuticle area and let sit for 60 seconds. Next, gently push back
with your favorite tool. Finally, wash hands and cuticles thoroughly with soap and water.
Glisten & Glow Cuticle Remover Pen contains: distilled water, potassium hydroxide, coconut oil and fragrance. Glisten & Glow Cuticle Oil Pen is a custom blend of Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E oil, grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil, sunflower oil, argan oil, castor oil, acai berry extract, tea tree oil and fragrance oil.

Rainbow Bridge is a medium purple creme polish packed with rainbow flakes. Inspiration: Based on the Rainbow Bridge Poem: In loving memory of all the amazing
and loved pets that we all have lost over the years. May their lives on the other side be
filled with comfort and wellness. We love and miss them so very much. This is one of my favorite G&G‘s ever. I just really love this one. The formula was such perfection and the flakies were abundant but not enough to mess with polishing. The formula is self leveling but I still suggest you use Glitter Grabber for such a flakie dense polish. I used 2 perfect coats for my swatches. Also, I had a pet pass not too long ago so that is the picture you will see below. ❤

You absolutely have to have it right?!?! Polish Pickup will be open for June 4th at 11am EST – June 7th at 11:59pm EST. Do not miss it! Rainbow Bridge will be $12.50 for each bottle with no cap! The cuticle oil & remover will be $12 per set and there is also no cap! Hug your pets extra close today for me! I hope you all have a great week! Thanks for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ Mental Health Awareness Collection

*These polishes were provided for review

*Picture heavy

Hello! How are we all doing on this fine Monday? I kid I kid. Mondays are always the worst. Unless you have a husband who’s days off are Sunday Monday like mine! Since I’m a stay at home mom my weekends are my husbands weekends! Anywho, Glisten & Glow is bringing us a Mental Health Awareness Collection. This is so close to my heart. I suffer from bipolar, PTSD, anxiety, depression, OCD, excoriation disorder, and agoraphobia. This collection brings to light 4 out of 7 of my “conditions”. This makes me extremely happy because these things are usually so hush hush. I am very open about what I deal with to help erase the social stigmas. Having these polishes will make for great conversation starters about mental health. Not to mention the donation of $1 for each bottle sold! This collection really has it all. Let’s have a look!

Suicide Awareness is a yellow jelly polish with blue to purple chrome flakes and rainbow color shifting iridescent flakes. There was a sneak peek at this one about a month ago and everyone went nuts over it. So here it is! The coveted yellow jelly!! The formula on this one was perfect. I do suggest Glitter Grabber since this is so flakie packed. It’s so flakie packed that you can’t tell it’s a jelly! It will cover in 2 coats for shorter nails. My free edge is really white so I used 3 coats for full opacity.

Break The Stigma is a red jelly polish with orange/red/green and green/purple color shifting iridescent flakes. To me, this is more of a fuchsia base. Either way it’s so so pretty. The flakies just make this polish ❤ Jill really nails the jelly formula too! Nice and smooth strokes for the win! I used 3 thin coats for my swatches. There is still a very slight visible nail line. Again, I highly suggest Glitter Grabber for such a flakie packed polish.

Bipolar & Depression is a lime jelly polish with green/gold color shifting shimmer with green to purple color shifting iridescent flakes and a touch of holo. This one can also be worn as a topper and is a bit thinner formula for exactly that reason. This polish is so unique. In my 1600 bottle collection I have nothing like this at all. As a topper it’s so gorgeous. I used 3 coats alone and 1 coat over black for my swatches.

PTSD & Anxiety is a teal based polish with added blue to purple color shifting shimmers. This is another polish that can be worn as a topper. it was made to be a thinner formula for exactly that reason! This one is awesome. It is on the sheer side so even at 3 coats I had a slight visible nail line. the formula was fantastic. I used 3 coats alone and 1 coat over black for my swatches. Such a shifty polish!

Before we get into the details, I have some facts for you!

  • Nearly 1 in 5 American adults will have a diagnosable mental health condition in any given year.
  • 46% of Americans will meet the criteria for a diagnosable mental health condition sometime in their life, and half of those people will develop conditions by the age of 14.
  • Number of US adults with mental illness: 44 million
  • Percent of US adults with mental illness: 18%

We are NOT alone and we should NOT be ashamed of something we cannot control! I recommend the Mental Health Awareness Collection to everyone and if for no other reason than the donation aspect! $1 per bottle gets donated to Mental Health America ❤ That’s a huge donation! Each polish will be $10 and the whole set will be $38. If you buy the set $4 will be donated. These release on May 28th at 7pm EST. Will you be picking these up? Let me know in the comments what you think and what you’re getting. Have a great week y’all ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ May 2021 PPU/IPU

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all! How was your weekend so far? Mine has been full of vacation planning!! My husband and I are renewing our vows on our 10 year anniversary at a resort if all goes to plan! SO. FREAKING. EXCITED!! So my weekend has been great lol. Let me bring you something pretty to get you through the rest of this beautiful Sunday. Jill from Glisten & Glow is bringing us the goods as usual. Let’s have a looksie.

Purple Rose is a vibrant purple mega linear holographic polish with an intense rainbow and blue flame. Here is Jill’s inspiration: “Purple roses have been a long standing guilty pleasure in my family for many years. My grandmother would buy herself one purple rose every month just to brighten her day! Her favorite color was purple and she just loved how unique and special they were. When she passed in May of 2006, we adorned her coffin with them. Yearly on the anniversary of her death all of the women in my family get a purple rose in her honor on that day.” That is just so sweet ❤

Purple Rose can be worn 2 ways which makes this polish just as unique. You can wear it as is without top coat and get that gorgeous purple look. Or you can add top coat and it will transform into a violet blue almost indigo. The holo flame is still just as strong in the sun as well! So fantastic worn either way!!

Purple Rose will be $12.50 per bottle with no cap.

G&G is also offering up Glitter Grabber for IPU! If you haven’t heard of or tried GG yet here is your chance. Glitter Grabber is an amazing product that gets applied after any glitter or flakie dense manicure is done and it’s fully dry before you 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 G&G‘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 will be $8 per bottle and there will be no cap!
