Hey! This post is gonna be about the best cremes I have ever used. Many have great crème polishes but these just top them all. This is my first time working with Tara of BravesDiva Polish and I couldn’t be happier with first impressions! Tara is super laid back about all the behind the scenes stuff. Did I mention she also makes exquisite crème polishes?? I just seriously can’t get over them. The Nana’s Island Escape trio was inspired by Tara’s mom’s favorite place on earth, Exuma Island in the Bahamas. Shall we get to the dream cremes? Thought so 😉
Tropic Of Cancer is a burnt orange crème polish. Yo….. I don’t even like this color normally but this one is my favorite. They all have perfect formulas but this is better than perfect. It’s a super polish. This polish is easily a 1 coater. Smoother than butter to apply. Just all around the best polish I have ever used. I used 2 coats for my swatch just because that’s how I do. Not only does it apply marvelously, it also stamps and water marbles. So ya, a super polish.

Thunderball Grotto is a soft yellow-orange crème polish. Anyone else see mac and cheese?? This color is literally so yummy looking lol. This one is just a smooth as TOC but this one definitely needs 2 coats. It’s better than any other yellow I have. Such a warm inviting color. This polish also stamps and water marbles. I used 3 thin coats for my swatch.

Paradise Bay is an aqua crème polish. This one is dreamy. Definitely makes me want to go to the tropics. This one leans more crelly like in my humble opinion. Still just as fabulous as the others! I mean, the color alone makes me happy so the fact that it pretty much applies itself is just an extra bonus. Just like the other 2 this polish stamps and water marbles. This will be used lots in my summer art!! I used 2 perfect coats for my swatches.
