Glisten & Glow ~ June 2022 PPU

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey! How’s it going? I am not ok with the fact that June is tomorrow. This year has flown by so far for me. Either way that means that PPU is right around the corner. Jill brings you some fun for the Fairs & Carnivals theme. Let’s check it out.

Carnival Lights & Summer Nights is a blue jelly polish loaded with green/blue/gold iridescent flakes, blue/purple/pink iridescent flakes, and various sizes of neon pink glitters. Jill’s inspiration comes from the breathtaking blue summer night sky at the carnival, as the ferris wheel circles, flashes, and glows those neon light bulbs! I can feel this description. Especially since Jill and I live in the same state. This polish is super fun. Always something to look at. Formula is great for being so flakie packed. I used 3 thin coats with Glisten & Glow’s Glitter Grabber, Top Coat, and Matte Top Coat.

Glisten & Glow’s 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 and long lasting with days to 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 nail art

I used it here over some stamping and a gradient. My wonky stamp was my user error. But you can clearly see there was no smearing or smudging.

Polish Pickup will be open June 3rd until June 6th at 11:59pm EST. Carnival Lights & Summer Nights will be $13 with NO cap. Top Coat will be $8 NO cap. Wish listing is open now so make sure you add these babies. I hope you all have a great rest of your week. Thanks for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ Season Of Weddings Collection

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all! Today I have for you a beautiful collection based on wedding season! Were you married this time of year? I was married on March 30th so pretty close! How I wish these were available in 2012 when I got married lol. When I was married I had acrylic nails put on for the last time. It was that set that made me stop biting my nails and then I got into nail polish! Enough with the history lesson. Let’s get to the goods!

Bring On The Bling! is a white based flakie crelly loaded with silver metallic flakes. FAVORITE!!! I can’t even give you a good reason but I just love this one. So simple but so perfect for the occasion. This polish is nice and creamy and lays pretty flat itself. I do recommend Glitter Grabber though since this polish is so flakie dense. I used 3 thin coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches.

Brides & Bubbly is a white based flakie crelly loaded with rose gold metallic flakes. How pretty is this? It definitely gives off a champagney vibe. This color is also so perfect for wedding season. Very feminine and delicate. I used 3 thin coats plus Glitter Grabber and top and matte top coats for my swatches.

I Do! Crew is a white based flakie crelly loaded with copper metallic flakes. This is an edgy wedding polish. I love the antique feel of the copper flakes. This polish will make a great fall mani as well. Wonderful formula on this one just like the rest. 3 thin coats plus Glitter Grabber, top coat and matte top coats for my swatches.

Better Together is a white based flakie crelly loaded with purple metallic flakes. This is my second favorite. I am actually wearing this as I type! This one is fun and will work for any season. Super pretty. I used 3 thin, perfect coats plus Glitter Grabber, top coat and matte top coats for my swatches.

All of these polishes have a fantastic formula and lay pretty flat for being so full of flakies. That being said, I still highly recommend Glitter Grabber before your top coat. It will just give you that glass like finish. Each of these polishes will be $11. Or you could save a few dollars and buy the whole Season Of Weddings collection for $40. The collection will be available Friday May 13th at 7pm EST. This is a limited edition quad so don’t miss out! Have a great day y’all! Thanks for stopping by ❤

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 ❤

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 ~ Love Songs Trio Vol. 2

*These polishes were provided for review

Today is the day y’all! Jill is releasing the Limited Edition Love Songs Trio Vol. 2! Have you seen swatches yet? I have seen some and they are just so pretty! This collection is so well rounded and perfect together. There is a flakie, a glitter, and a metallic. Let’s take a look.

Unchained Melody is a clear based polish loaded with color shifting chrome flakes that shift from purple/red/copper/green/gold with added fuchsia shreds and gold shimmer. This one has sooo much depth. The fuchsia shreds make this polish. Formula was buttery perfect. Who doesn’t love a full coverage flakie polish?!?! I used 3 thin coats for my swatches with Glisten & Glow’s Glitter Grabber and glossy and matte top coats.

I’ll Stand By You is a purple based jelly polish loaded with smaller red glitters and red holo glitters. Omg I love this one. Purple and red is my most favorite color combo! The formula is impeccable for a jelly base. It just glides on so smoothly. The glitters are so eye catching. The glitters leave a little texture so I suggest grabbing Glitter Grabber as well with your purchase. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches with Glisten & Glow’s Glitter Grabber and glossy and matte top coats.

Can’t Help Falling In Love is a red jelly polish loaded with red/gold/green/blue color shifting aurora shimmers. So, I said this was a metallic and I was wrong but it seriously looks like it!! This one actually ended up being my favorite. This went straight onto my toes! I don’t know what it is about this one but I just can’t get enough. It just glows. I was also a little shocked because the first coat looked like it was going to be pink and at the end it’s almost an orange! Check out my YouTube swatches to see what I mean! Formula on this was perfection and it was nice and smooth so no Glitter Grabber needed for this one. 3 thin coats for my swatches with Glisten & Glow’s glossy and matte top coats.

Which is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below what you’ll be grabbing!! The Love Songs Trio Vol. 2 release tonight, January 14th at 7pm EST. Each polish on it’s own will be $11. Or you can buy the trio for $32. Don’t miss out as these are limited edition polishes. One batch and done! I hope you have a fantastic weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ January 2022 PPU/IPU

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all! Sorry for the recent break. I had Covid and just took some time for myself for that. I will report that because I am vaccinated, the sickness was more like a cold for me. I was very lucky. Enough about that. Let’s get to the polish!

Sweet N’ Low On The Go is a soft bubble gum pink polish loaded with blue/purple iridescent flakes and added aqua and blue shimmers. Wow is this sweet! It’s that pink that just screams sweetener. Such a perfect match to the inspiration! Sweet N’ Low On The Go is inspired by the pink sugar substitute that is always within reach at your local coffee shop/restaurant or in your purse to sweeten your favorite drink or food. The flakes in this polish are so abundant. It makes the polish a tad chunky. It lays flat upon application though so no worries. Because of the flakes you will also need Glitter Grabber. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

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! I used it in my pictures above for Sweet N’ Low On The Go. It made my finished mani as smooth as glass.

Here are the deets:

Sweet N’ Low On The Go: $13 NO CAP

Glitter Grabber: $8 NO CAP

Polish Pickup will be open 1/7/22 at 11 am EST –1/10/22 at 11:59 pm EST. Don’t miss out! Let me know in the comments what you’ll be picking up this month! I Hope you all have a fantastic week ahead. Thanks so much for stopping by ❤

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 ❤
