Glisten & Glow ~ Cornucopia of Thanks Collection

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all! It’s finally cooled down where I am and I couldn’t be happier! My favorite season is winter but fall is a very close second. I hope everyone is feeling well with all that’s going on in the world. Just remember there is always someone to talk to even if it be help lines. I’ll link some numbers below. For now let’s talk polish! I have the Cornucopia of Thanks Collection, which is a quartet of polishes that says thanks in different languages. Let’s have a look.

Bedankt (Dutch) is a light periwinkle creme polish. Definitely not your average fall color but it fits with this collection beautifully. My pictures lean a little blue for this one. It has the slightest purple hint that my camera just wouldn’t pick up. As always I’ll let you know what’s color accurate. Bedankt was a dream to work with. 2 perfect coats for my swatches. Price $10

Most color accurate

Danke (German) is a medium boysenberry purple creme polish. I really want to say that this one is my favorite but every time I get to the green it wins lol. This is a super close second though. Just look at the deep lusciousness. This looks fabulous on the nails. I feel like this would fit all skin tones. An all around perfect polish. 2 coats for my swatches. Price $10

Gracias (Spanish) is a medium deep green creme polish with a touch of teal. Y’all. This polish looks as if an emerald and some jade were melted together. The color is just stunning. Probably my favorite new green. I could not wait to get this on and it did not disappoint! If you get only 1 polish here let it be this one for real! Jill’s creme polishes are always fantastic and Gracias was no different. 2 coats for my swatches. Price $10.

Spasibo (Russian) is a light pumpkin creme polish. I know it’s corny but I had to put pumpkins on this color lol. It’s the perfect pumpkin shade without being too bold. This one is super squishy. More like a crelly than a creme. An absolute dream to work with. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches. Price $10

What do you think? Do you love them? The Cornucopia of Thanks Collection is the perfect fall set. Please, please, please come back and let me know what you picked up and what you think about Gracias lol. Must haves for sure. The Cornucopia of Thanks Collection will be available on October 9th at 7pm EST. Don’t miss them! Thanks so much for stopping by 🙂 Links below!

LevelUP Lacquer ~ Oct. 2020 PPU

*This polish was provided for review

Hello! Home from my quick little getaway and I feel so refreshed. It’s amazing what 2 nights on the water can do for you. Anyways, I am back with LevelUp Lacquer‘s contribution for October’s PPU theme of animation! Let’s have a look at this polish inspired by water breathing (10th form) from Demon Slayer (Anime series).

Constant Flux is a medium blue crelly with a scattered holographic shimmer and white and iridescent glitters in multiple shapes and sizes. I love the way the iridescent glitters subtly flash through the base color. This polish was a little on the thick side but nothing you can’t work with! This polish can be worn in 2-3 coats or layered over a darker color. I used 3 coats for my swatches. Price $11. Cap: 250 US / 50 UK

with flash

I love Constant Flux. It’s something I have never seen before and it’s so very pretty. PPU will be open from October 2nd – October 5th. Don’t forget to add this unique beauty to your wish list! Links below. Have a great week y’all 🙂

Glisten & Glow ~ Oct. 2020 PPU

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey guys! Glisten & Glow is back for October’s Polish Pickup. If you haven’t seen the pics yet hold your hats. She’s a doozy! Polish Pickup‘s theme for October is Cartoon/Animation. Truly Outrageous was inspired by Jill’s fanatic love for Jem And The Holograms. Let’s have a looksie 🙂

Truly Outrageous is exactly that. Truly outrageous!! This polish is a burple jelly polish with various shades, shapes, and sizes of pink glitters. Pretty much the epitome of burple color. My pics do lean a little blue so I’ll make sure you know what pic is most color accurate. Truly Outrageous is so fun! The sparkle is fantastic and the depth is just awesome. And it’s SO squishy! I’m leaving for vacation tomorrow and I do believe this will be on my toes. I used 3 thin coats for my swatch plus glitter grabber and top coat. Price $12.50 Cap: Under 395 for both US & UK.

Most Color Accurate!

Before I show you my fun nail art, I want to tell you about Jill’s top coat. Glisten & Glow Top Coat is an award winning, fast drying, glossy top coat. After using this top coat your nails will be dry in 2-4 minutes or less and they will be durable and long lasting with days to weeks of no tip wear or chipping! It has a crystal clear, shiny/glossy, “wet/gel” like appearance. It seals and evens glitters and flakie polishes. It won’t smear your nail art and it glows under black light! Dang that’s a lot lol. I say this all the time but I have been buying this top coat since 2013 and I haven’t bought another brand since! I have reviewed but never purchased anything but this. It has my heart and my hands ❤ Price $7.50 Cap: US-230 UK-5

Polish Pickup will only be open from October 2 at 11am EST until October 5 at 11:59pm EST. Make sure these go on your wish list!! Have a great day! Links below 🙂

Glisten & Glow ~ Fall 2020

Hello! How are we all doing? I am fabulous! It’s 71 degrees out and all my windows are open. I love this time of year. The fresh air is just so perfect and refreshing. A perfect fall type day to bring you Glisten & Glows Fall 2020 trio! 3 gorgeous glitter crellies that are a little out of the norm color wise. On to the pics!

The Great Grape Stomp is a white based crelly with various shapes and sizes of purple, lavender, garnet, grey, and gun metal glitters. An absolute must have for any purple lover. The polish is nice and creamy. Glitter packed but not chunky. No need to fish for glitters as this has tons! The glitter colors all compliment each other so nicely. An all around pleasure to use. 2 coats for my swatches. Price $10.

Jack O’Lantern Blaze is the only color you might expect to see in a fall collection. It’s a white based crelly polish with various shapes and sizes of chocolate, yellow, and orange glitters. This screams falloween. Again, a super smooth polish filled to the brim with glitter. I think of s’mores and pumpkin pie when I wear this. 2 coats for full coverage. Price $10

Harvest Moon Skies is a white based crelly loaded with various shapes and sizes of navy, turquoise, grey, gun metal, and aqua glitters. This one is my favorite. The colors together are unique but so very pretty. I especially love the grey and gun metal glitter. Not a color I would expect at all but it totally works. As with the others, this is super smooth but glitter packed! 2 coats for my swatch. Price $10

Did you notice that all of my manis looked smooth? That’s because I used Glitter Grabber! After you put on your polish, allow it to dry fully then use a coat of Glitter Grabber before you top coat! Totally smooth! It is a miracle product that has many uses. Make sure you follow Glisten & Glow‘s FB page to see what people are saying. If you use glitter you absolutely need Glitter Grabber! Anywho, the Fall 2020 collection will be available for purchase on September 18th at 7pm EST. Set any alarms you have. You will not regret this purchase ever. I will have the links below! Have a great day y’all 🙂

Glisten & Glow

Hey y’all, I’m back. No house. Turns out it needed a new foundation and the seller refused to pay for it. So, for now we are just looking at apartments and will go back to house hunting in a year or so. I’m so sad. The location was EVERYTHING!! But that’s that. Hopefully in a few years we can look again in the same neighborhood. Since this is a review blog, I suppose should get to the reviews huh!? Let’s get to it.

Mystery Polish July 2020 is a bright blue crelly polish with black and black holo glitters in various sizes. To me this is just fantastic. Just look at that blue! It really makes a statement. I’m not always the biggest glitter fan but I absolutely had to have these few polishes. Jill’s crelly formula is as smooth as silk. They level out nicely on their own even with all the glitter. I used only 2 coats in my swatch video but I should have used 3. My pics are 3 coats. The white of my nail shows through without that last coat. Price: $10

Mystery Polish August 2020 is a teal crelly polish with black and black holo glitter in various sizes. Oh look! Another teal… I just can’t help myself. For real. It’s become an obsession lately! It just looks so good with my skin tone. This super smooth polish went on perfectly in 3 thin coats. Price $10

Mystery Polish September 2020 is a bright green crelly with black and black holo glitters in various sizes. I had to have this one because my birthday is in September. It turned out to be my favorite. This shade of green is just so fun and definitely eye catching. The holo also seems to be a bit more visible in this one as well. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches. Price: $10

Overall, I am super happy with this purchase! I have already worn the teal more than once and so has my daughter. It’s also on her toes as well as mine. Like I said before, obsessed. I’m not sure I have ever had a polish with a fill line in less than a week lol. If you are interested in any of these, the link to Jill’s shop will be down below. I hope you all have a great day! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

Glisten & Glow

*These products were purchased by me

Hello! Today I just want to stop in and share some stuff I have picked up recently. Anyone who knows me well knows I am very loyal to my Glisten & Glow top coat. Well, I was just about out when Jill announced a sale! So I grabbed a few polishes and refills for my base and top coat. When I got it in the mail I noticed that I also got a free gift. Turns out Jill is just awesome and threw some in for her customers!! So sweet ❤ Let’s see what I grabbed.

First up is I Will Always Love You. You already know I’m a sucker for red polish. Here is this perfect classic red jelly. The formula is better than a jelly polish. Jellies can be picky but this one was very forgiving. No staining of the cuticles at all. IWALY dries to a super high shine finish as well. You really can’t ask for more with this baby. I used 3 coats of pure perfection. Price: $8.50

My next pick was SPARS Of The Coast. I know I went plain. And I am so happy about it. Sometimes the color is all you need. This teal creme polish is a necessity in any collection. I have multiple and they are all very different. Which is why I still needed this one! SOTC is an easy 2 coat polish. I used 2 coats for my swatches. Price: $8.50

Boots On The Ground is an olive green creme polish. I feel like you can never have enough green polish. This is the color I’m always looking for but never seem to have. So now I do! The color is just so rich. Formula, like all G&Gs, is fabulous. Again, this is easily a 2 coater. I used 2 coats for my swatches. Price: $8.50

Here are the other things I got!

If you have never used Glisten & Glow top coat I highly suggest you get on that! It’s life changing lol!! The free gift was a jolly rancher scented cuticle oil. It’s so yummy!! Within a week of this purchase, I went back and grabbed 3 more polishes. That will be my next post. Can you guess what they are? Let me know in the comments! Also let me know what you think of this setup. Gotta get a signature look down. I always look forward to hearing from you. Have a great rest of your week y’all ❤

Color Street Nail Strips

 *These strips were free samples.

Hi guys! Today I have a different type of post. I did a wear test on some Color Street samples I was sent. Just for funsies. These are not the best pics since this was all done on my right hand. The first color I was sent was called Moon River. A dusty deep blue with silver glitters. I loved the color so much. I had never used strips like this before. They adhere so well. They even stretch a little to fit YOUR nail shape perfectly. Here are some progress pics. 

June 21st

July 1st. Look how amazing these still look after 9 days!!

July 3rd

July 3rd. I took them off 2 days early because I was starting to pick them off 😳

The second sample I was sent I recorded how to apply them. That will be on my YouTube. These lasted the entire 2 weeks and I beat them up really good. I changed diapers, did dishes, swatched about 15 polishes, plus the normal wear and tear. This color was called Tokyo Lights. A gold and fuchsia glitter bomb. I loved it so much. 

July 16th

July 16th. This was my fault. I have a sharp curve in my nail and I didn’t adhere it as well as I should have. I also nicked the side 🙄 

July 22nd

July 30th

July 16th 

This was after removal. You remove it just like regular polish! Pic to show that there is no leftover damage!! I got these both from my friend Patricia so I will leave her shop link below! Each set comes with a small file, nail prep pad, and the nail strips. The pack comes with 16 strips in 8 different sizes. Here are the prices: 

$11: solid colors and clear nail art

$12: glitter

$13: glitter nail art, nail art

$14: french 

All packs are Buy 3 get 1 free except french which are Buy 1 get 1.

I highly recommend these if you don’t want to touch up your nails every few days. This is a super simple, no mess way of having your nails painted. And no dry time! The price is pretty good too. I actually thought they were more expensive so I was schooled. Thank you so much to Patricia for putting up with my forgetful self! I asked her polish names multiple times 😆 Make sure you watch my application video to see how easy these are to put on! Have a fantastic weekend y’all ♥️

Dr.’s Remedy ~ Peace, Love, Sunshine Trio

 *These polishes were provided for review

Hello! How has your week been? Mine has been pretty typical of a stay at home mom with a 6 month old! My son is just a super happy baby so its almost all fun… almost lol. Today I am bringing you the Peace, Love, Sunshine Collection from Dr.’s Remedy. Remember them? I have had them on my blog a few times. In case you don’t, here is some info. Dr.’s Remedy polishes are formulated by doctors. They are vegan and totally safe to use. I won’t weigh this post down so I am going to link their info HERE. Please go visit and see what they have to offer. Oh! One more thing. The polishes are filled with things like: tea tree oil, biotin, wheat protein, and other vitamins! Ok. Moving on.  


Sweet Soleil is a soft buttery yellow creme polish. I expected to have issues with the application but I had none!! Yellows can be picky so I was very happily surprised. The formula of this polish is perfectly creamy while also being very opaque. If you polish on the thicker side you could get away with 1 coat. I used 2 coats for my swatches. 

POLISHED Pale Peach is a gorgeous pale peachy pink. This color leaned nude as well. This is perfect for the end of summer. PPP is also a super work friendly color. Just one of those super simple must haves. Again, this was really opaque. Well, they are all very opaque. I used 2 coats for my swatch. 

TACTFUL Turmeric is the perfect sunset yellow-orange. Ya know the one I mean? The super bold sun? That one! TT really stands out on the nail. It has an extremely nice creme formula. This is screaming summer to me. I used 2 smooth coats for me swatch. 

Overall this collection really comes through for the later part of summer. Not even gonna try and say that I won’t use these all year because I will. They are just completely effortless to apply. The Peace, Love, Sunshine Collection is actually all sold separately so you don’t have to get all three together. You can mix and match with any of their colors. Dr.’s Remedy polishes are $17.25 a piece. Absolutely worth it considering the ingredients and quality. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope to see you soon 🙂
