Glisten & Glow ~ May 2022 PPU

*These products were provided for review

Hey y’all! I hope you all have been doing well. My vacation was fantastic and I have slowly started to get back into my polishing flow. Today I have for you Glisten & Glow‘s contribution to May’s PPU. The theme is National Parks and Landmarks. Let’s see what Jill has come up with!

Northern Lights At Acadia is a reflective glitter polish loaded with flashes of blue, purple, green, and silver. Under low lighting, a grey hue with purple under tones shines through the reflective sparkles. Under bright light or with the use of flash, the reflective sparkle morphs into a stunning display of flashes of blue, purple, green, and silver. Every lighting and every angle shows something unique. I love this polish so hard. Bright light or not it is just absolutely stunning! The inspo comes from the Northern Lights. The Northern Lights are one of the most breathtaking sights in the night skies. They can be seen from various locations on Earth. As a child, Jill would visit Maine in the winter months. They would always make time for a visit to Acadia National Park. On those winter night atop Cadillac Mountain the views of the Northern Lights were unforgettable! This polish dries matte and semi textured so please grab some Glitter Grabber to help smooth it all out. I used 2 coats with Glitter Grabber and Glisten & Glow‘s Top Coat and Matte Top Coat.

The next item up for grabs is this Calm Seas scented Cuticle Remover. Glisten & Glow‘s Cuticle Remover softens and removes excess cuticle as well as eponychium skin and comes in our new 1oz. bottle with easy to use dropper applicator. A simple squeeze of the dropper pulls up the cuticle remover, and with another squeeze you can dispense the cuticle remover on your cuticles and nail plate area. This is the much larger size of the same amazing cuticle remover in the pen/brush applicator. The scent, Calm Seas, is a mild aroma of the salty sea with a clean fresh vibe. Inspired by the coastal waters which surround Acadia National Park in Maine.

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

Glisten & Glow‘s Cuticle Remover contains: distilled water, potassium hydroxide, coconut oil, and fragrance.

Polish Pickup will be open from May 6th at 11am EST to May 9th at 11:59pm EST. Definitely add both of these to your wish list. Especially the cuticle remover. The scent is just so fresh but relaxing. Like you’re really at the beach with no coconut smell! I know that matters to some when it comes to an actual beach scent. Anywho, don’t miss out!!

Northern Lights At Acadia: $13: NO CAP.

Calm Seas Cuticle Remover: $13: NO CAP.

Death Valley Nails ~ Cruella De Tejas

*I bought this

Who here doesn’t love a good thermal? They are my favorite. Today I have for you my vacation polish! This is the polish I’ll be wearing to St. Croix. I’ll add a coat of fairy dust and I’ll be good to go! Let’s check it out.

Cruella De Tejas is described as a thermal polish with purple, red, and pink shifting micro chrome specks. This is a tri thermal that is maroon when cold, red when warm, and pink when hot. This is a very reactive thermal that changes pretty easy. I obviously love it! I’ll be wearing it for 7 days hopefully. That’s just unheard of for me so let’s hope it lasts. Anyways, I used 3 thin coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches.

This polish is available now for $14. I highly recommend this brand. The formula was impeccable. This will be my last blog post for at least a week and a half so stick around! I have more coming as soon as I get back from vacation! Have a great night y’all. Thanks for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ 12th Anniversary Trio

*These polishes were provided for review

Hi! This collection I have for you today is very special! It is to celebrate Jill’s 12 years in business as Glisten & Glow! March 10th was the official date but now we have this. A prolonged celebration if you will. All you purple lovers will need the trio hands down. Let’s have a look.

We Still Got It! is an iris purple jelly polish with color shifting flakes that shift from purple to blue and added blue reflective glitters. I love the flakes in this one. They make this polish. The reflective glitters were pretty subtle and not too textured at all. I still would say to use Glitter Grabber though because of the flakies. Great formula for a jelly polish. I used 3 thin coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches.

Couldn’t Have Done It Without YOU! is a white based crelly polish loaded with pink, purple, and blue metallic flakes. I love this one. it’s so fun looking. like confetti! Fits in perfectly with the celebration theme. This one DEFINITELY needs Glitter Grabber. It’s so flakie filled it’s nuts. Formula is still great as per the norm for Jill! I used 3 thin coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches.

Truckin’ It Through Twelve is an icy lilac polish with added color shifting shimmers that shift from orange, red, yellow, and green with purple reflective glitters. Again, the reflective glitter is pretty subtle. Gives you the perfect amount of low key bling! The shift in this polish is everything! If you pick up just one from this trio make it this one. Again with the Glitter Grabber! I used 3 thin coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches.

Purple lovers, do you need them? I thought so lol!! The 12th Anniversary Trio will be available April 15th 2022 at 7pm EST. Each polish will be $11.50 or you can save some change and buy the trio for $30. Either way you won’t be upset. These are amazing as always. Let me know in the comments which one or ones you’ll be grabbing. Have a great week y’all. Thanks for stopping by ❤

Moon Shine Mani ~ That’s Our Monster

*I bought this

Hello! Today I have for you this unique thermal polish. Again, this one is no longer available but I wanted to share it anyways! It’s just so pretty. Let’s check it out!

That’s Our Monster is a thermal shifting soft, rosy chocolate to vivid pink, glowing with pink/gold/green shimmer and packed with platinum flakies, iridescent flakes shifting through red/gold/green and purple/blue/pink and micro black flakies. This polish is inspired by Beth Dutton from Yellowstone and how unpredictable and wild she is while also being incredibly loving. I have never seen Yellowstone! I just really love the polish and this is my first MSM!! It did not disappoint. Such a smooth even finish. I went and immediately ordered the autism duo! Anyways, I used 3 thin coats for my swatches plus glossy and matte top coats.

I am obsessed with thermal polish. I’m wearing one now as I type lol. I am sorry that this is no longer available but keep an eye out for it in a destash. I hope you all have a great week! thanks for stopping by ❤

KB Shimmer ~ Beach You To It

*I bought this

Hello! How are we all doing this week? I’m 9 days out from my vacation so I’m getting super excited! I actually bought this polish because it was inspired by the Caribbean. Unfortunately, this polish is no longer available. I just wanna blog it because I love it so. Let’s have a look.

Beach You To It is a bold blue reflective shade filled with color shifting shimmer. Y’all… I was not expecting the opacity of this polish. I audibly gasped! It is totally possible to leave this polish at just one coat. Especially if your nails are shorter. I used two coats just to get the full reflective effect. Formula is comparable to a Zoya Pixie Dust. Not quite as textured but a little. You will definitely need a glitter grabbing top coat for this beauty. I used two coats for my swatches.

Again, this is no longer available. Unless you can catch it in a destash! Don’t forget to keep up with Polish Pickup for more Limited Edition shades from all of your favorite makers! Have a great night! Thanks for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ April 2022 PPU

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all! It’s that time again. PPU is quickly approaching. Wish listing is open so make sure you filling that up. While you’re at it, add Glisten & Glow’s contribution to your list. It’s a fun stunner this month! Let’s check it out.

Minty Fresh is a white based crelly polish loaded with mint and blue metallic flakes. This polish is just like a toothpaste! So nice and fresh. Inspired by the element Fluorine (F) and it’s use in toothpaste! Keep that Smile Bright with Minty Fresh Toothpaste! If you know the maker, Jill you know that she is an avid tooth brusher! She’s huge into dental care!

* Fluoride “remineralizes” tooth enamel by bonding to areas of decay and attracting other minerals, like calcium, to the site of the damage.
* Fluoride prevents further decay by stimulating the production of fluorapatite , a type of tooth enamel that is highly resistant to acids and bacteria.
* Fluoride exerts antibacterial properties that not only inhibit the growth of bacteria but prevent the microbes from sticking to teeth.

Did you know that stuff? I had no idea! Anyhow let’s get to the next product!


Glitter Grabber is an amazing product that gets applied after any glitter or flakie dense
manicure is done and it’s fully dry and 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 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 and then add your glossy or matte top coat! It works at grabbing that extra texture that glitter or flakies can have!

Minty Fresh: $13 – NO CAP

Glitter Grabber: $8 – NO CAP

Polish Pickup will be open from 4/1/22 at 11 am EST – 4/4/22 at 11:59 pm EST. Make sure you add Minty Fresh and Glitter Grabber to your cart! Thanks so much for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ March 2022 PPU

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey all! Are we ready for this months PPU? It came up really quick this time for me. Glisten & Glow as usual is bringing you some fire! Let’s get to it.

Amethyst Skies is an Amethyst purple polish loaded with a blend of reflective pigment. Under low lighting, a darker amethyst shade shines through with reflective sparkle. Under bright light or with the use of flash, the reflective sparkle morphs into a vibrant, lighter amethyst shade. The inspiration is beautiful, vibrant purple skies that are rarely seen, but once experienced, are breathtaking and majestic. I am LOVING all the reflective polishes lately. How about you? I used 2 perfect coats of this polish plus Glitter Grabber and glossy and matte top coats. I definitely suggest Glitter Grabber because this will leave a slight texture to your nails.

How awesome is Amethyst Skies? This is one of those polishes that I have worn more than once in a very short time! It’s just so pretty and flashy.

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 dry, durable, long lasting with days or weeks of no tip wear, or chipping!

* non smearing for stamping manis

I have been buying Glisten & Glow top coat for 10 years now and it’s all I will buy. It’s just considered a necessity in my budget.
