Glisten & Glow ~ Fall Holos 2021

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all!! It’s almost fall. I can’t wait for the nice weather fall brings. I live in the north east and I still can barely stand the heat! I can’t imagine what it’s like in the lower states. I would fully melt lol!! How about you? What’s your favorite weather? Fall is bringing us some gorgeous polish. Let’s check out Glisten & Glow’s line up for fall!

For The Love Of Gourd is a harvest yellow holo polish with added holo micro flakes. I’m not the hugest fan of yellow polish. The formula is usually pretty picky. BUT this one is perfect! Super smooth and self leveling. No formula issues whatsoever! I used 3 buttery coats for my swatches.

Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice is a burnt orange holo polish with added holo micro flakes. This shade of orange is my favorite. I mean, I love me a good neon orange but this is much more wearable through all 4 seasons. Especially fall! It is the perfect pumpkin color. I would recommend 3 thin coats for this polish. I used 2 regular coats for my swatches but I should have added that 3rd coat!

Fall Aboard! is a tomato red holo polish with added holo micro flakes. Again, this shade is just perfect for fall. It’s a softer red polish. Not as harsh as a fire engine color. This will compliment any skin tone. I used 3 perfectly smooth coats for my swatches.

Leaf Me Alone is a medium green holo polish with added holo micro flakes. This one is my favorite. The perfect green for anything!! Just an all over exquisite polish. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

So, on a scale of 1 to 10 how much do you love them and why is it a 10!? Kidding!! But seriously, I can’t think of any other collection that screams fall like this one. These 4 colors are the epitome of fall. Each polish will be $11.50 or you can buy the set for $40! Who doesn’t love to save a little?? The Fall Holos will release tonight, September 17th 2021 at 7pm EST. Don’t miss out on these. Between this set and the upcoming holiday collection you will have a full holo rainbow! I’ll show this soon on my IG! This is a limited collection y’all so please don’t miss out! I hope you all have an amazing weekend! Thanks for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ September 2021 PPU

*These polishes were provided for review

Hello! Tomorrow is PPU already! This month came so quick for me. And it is by far my favorite month of the year for PPU! The theme this month is Trick or Treat!!! Have you seen the offerings? AMAZING! Today I will be showing you what Jill from Glisten & Glow has to offer. Let’s take a look!

Cats & Bats is a very vampy and mysterious dark, dark purple almost black jelly polish filled with iridescent flakes that shift from dark blue to purple and iridescent flakes that shift from pink/red/orange/green/gold. Added holo flakes and holo sparkle round out this beauty. Y’ALL!! I love this one so much. The hues of pink purple and blue are so prevalent. Jill’s inspiration was Halloween’s superstitions of black cats and the spooky bats that fly at night while trick or treating. Nailed it! This will be the perfect base for any Halloween nail art! As per the norm, this formula is fantastic. Especially being so full of flakies. You will need the other offering for PPU and that is Glitter Grabber. It will smooth out any bumps you may get from the flakies. I used 3 easy coats for my swatches.

Glitter Grabber is an amazing product that gets applied after any flakie or glitter dense manicure is done and it is 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’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!

Here you can see my glitter packed polish alone, then with 1 coat of Glitter Grabber, then with 1 coat of Glitter Grabber and 1 coat of top coat. You can clearly see the smooth finish it will give you!

So there you go. 2 more things for you to grab this month from PPU! I promise you’ll love them both. Glitter Grabber actually has many uses and rave reviews so please do yourself the favor! Polish Pickup will be open September 3rd at 11am EST until September 6th at 11:59pm EST.

Cats & Bats: $12.50 per bottle NO Cap

Glitter Grabber: $8 per bottle NO Cap

    Glisten & Glow ~ August 2021 PPU-IPU

    *These polishes were provided for review

    Hey y’all! It’s almost that time again. Polish Pickup is coming up really fast this month. As usual Jill of Glisten & Glow is bringing you the goods! The theme this month is elements: earth, air, fire, water. Jill’s inspiration is one of the most beautiful concert venues in the US, Red Rocks Amphitheatre located in Morrison, Colorado. The sunsets, reflections off the amazing rocks and the starry skies is breathtaking. Let’s check it out!

    Nights at Red Rocks is a rich burgundy jelly polish loaded with red, orange, pink, gold, green iridescent flakes with micro holo flakes and a touch of holo magic. Y’all, I have worn this 4 times already. I freaking love love love it!! At extreme angles the flakes go blue and it’s just fantastic! I really just can’t say enough about this polish. What’s crazy is the fact that I never would have chosen this polish for myself. I’m just a little in shock about how much I like this lol! I think I could have used 3 coats but because it is so flakie dense I did only 2 coats for my swatches.

    Jill also has her top coat available for IPU! You can see it showcased in any of my pics. It’s all I use. This bottle was PR but I regularly buy myself top coat from Glisten & Glow. It’s just the best!

    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 glitters and flakie polishes
    • Non smearing for nail art
    • Glows under black light

    So, you need them right?! I so highly suggest you grab Nights at Red Rocks! Polish Pickup will be open August 6th at 11am EST until August 9th at 11:59pm EST

    • Nights at Red Rocks: $12.50. No Cap!
    • Top Coat: $7.50. NO Cap!

    Set your alarms and don’t miss it! I hope you all have a great rest of your week. Thanks so much for stopping by ❤

  • Glisten & Glow ~ July rewind PPU-IPU 2021

    *Truly Outrageous 2.0 & Glitter Grabber were provided for review. Pink In The City was purchased by me.

    Hey! How are we all doing? How was your weekend? Mine was uneventful. Boring to the max actually lol. Coming up this weekend is Polish Pickup! Are we ready? Are our wallets ready? Let’s check out what Jill from Glisten & Glow has to offer!

    Truly Outrageous 2.0 is a blurple crelly polish with different shapes and sizes of pink glitters and pink holo glitters. This 2.0 version is slightly more purple than the original polish. I actually like this base color a little more and I feel that the formula was even a little better. All around just a super smooth formula. I used 3 thin coats but you could probably get away with just 2 regular coats. “Truly Outrageous is inspired by the popular 80’s tv series – Jem and The Holograms! Funny Story, when Jill was in kindergarten she LOVED Jem, since Jem was her favorite she decided that she would rename herself Jem. So on all her papers and school work she wrote her name as Jem. The teachers called her Jem even. When her parents went to the first parent teacher conferences, the teacher said Oh your daughter Jem is just a delight. They said Our daughter name is Jill and everyone had a huge laugh!”

    Pink In The City is a neon pink jelly polish jam packed with color shifting iridescent flakies that shift between dark blue and purple. This one is so electric in person! You all need this one in your life! I used 3 thin coats for my swatches. Inspiration: Sarah Jessica Parker’s hot pink, ’80s-inspired Zac Posen gown worn at the New York City Ballet Fall Fashion Gala in 2019. She also paired the look with two mismatched heels from her own fashion line. This was a nod to her Sex in the City character Carrie Bradshaw, who adopted the quirky styling trick on the show.

    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! In order the pics are as follows: No glitter Grabber, 1 coat Glitter Grabber, 1 coat Glitter Grabber & 1 coat top coat.

    So, for July, there are polishes available at Polish Pickup and some are available in the makers shop. PPU shop will be open from July 2nd – July 5th.

    • Truly Outrageous 2.0 – $12.50 PPU shop – no cap
    • Glitter Grabber – $8.00PPU shop – no cap
    • Pink In The City – $12.50G&G shop – no cap

    I hope that makes it clear enough! Luckily there are no caps on anything here so you will all get what you want!! Let me know below what you’ll be grabbing! Have a great day y’all! Thank 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!

    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 ❤

    Moonflower Polish ~ August 2020 PPU

    *This polish was provided for review


    Hello!! How are we all doing? Staying safe and healthy I hope 🤞🏼 Where I am it is thundering and lightning so this is the perfect time to write about this amazing beauty from Nadia of Moonflower Polish


    Lightning Crashes is a “dark purple base with purple-to-blue iridescent micro flakes and scattered holo. It can be used as a regular polish in 1-2 coats or as a stamping polish. Lightning storms over Orlando Florida. Meteorology is one of my favorite sciences. The area of Central Florida where I live is known as Lightning Alley because it’s the spot with the most lightning strikes in the northern hemisphere. The unique shape of the peninsula means there’s usually going to be a thunderstorm in the afternoon, due to the collision of sea breezes from the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico.” This is a deep grape color with blue flashes. It’s fantastic. I mean, I may be biased because blue and purple are my favorite polish colors, but I doubt it. The formula is perfect and only takes 1 coat. Could it get any better? YES! It stamps perfectly! I used one coat for these pics plus top coat. 












    Amazing right?!?! Polish Pickup’s theme is Weird Science and it will be open from August 7th – August 10th. Lightning Crashes will be $12.50 with a cap of 75 US and 5 UK. 


    LynBDesigns ~ June 2020 PPU

    *This polish was purchased by me


    Hey guys! How are we all doing? I’m doing really good! We just officially started the process of buying a house. There have been lots of pauses because of covid but we are finally on track. We live in a 1 bedroom apartment with a 5 month old so its a little cramped here. In the now house I will have my own nail room!! It’s actually going to be called the “noffice”. Half nail room, half office. Pretty much my nail room with the laptop and printer in there 😆 I’m psyched!! Wait, are we here for polish? Ok, let’s get to it.


    LynBDesigns was inspired by the Maui mule for the Cocktails & Mocktails theme. The Lei’d Back is described as a dark purple (cold) to denim blue (warm) to peach (hot) tri-thermal with red to green to gold shifting aurora shimmer, pink to gold shifting flakes, and violet to pink to copper to orange shifting flakes. Since we are buying a house funds are slim right now but I had to have this. I am such a sucker for a thermal polish. They are just so much fun. The formula on this is spectacular and the thermal effect changes with ease. I am sooooooooo glad I got this one. I used 3 thin coats for my pics.

    Moonflower Polish ~ May 2020 PPU

    *This polish was provided for review
    Hello! Are we all ready for Candy Land?! I am so excited for this theme. The makers really brought it this month with all the goodies. Nadia, owner of Moonflower Polish, is bringing you this awesome polish that has been formulated for regular wear! Usually the stamping polish aficionado, Nadia changed her direction for this month. Let’s check it out!
    Dulce de Coco is an, “off-white crelly full of iridescent microflakies. Dulce de Coco is meant to be worn as a regular nail polish in 2-3 coats. If used for stamping, use over black for best results. It is intentionally more sheer than my usual stamping polishes in order to show off more of the microflakies. Inspired by my favorite traditional Puerto Rican candy, made from coconuts. The polish name translates to “coconut candy”.” This polish screams confection 😍 The flakies make this polish. I love that this is an off white not a bright white. It just softens the whole thing. Formula for me was a little on the thick side but Nadia has assured me she will be thinning out the batches sent to everyone else. It was still totally polishable and I only needed 2 coats for full coverage. It is so pretty stamped as well. I’m rambling so let’s see some pics.

    Let me apologize for the weirdness of my skin. White does that to me. So, what do you think? I love it. It was the perfect base for some candy stamping! Make sure this goes on your wish list because there are only 50 bottles for the US only! This pandemic is affecting everyone everywhere, indies included. That leads to shortages of pigments and other supplies. That means ninja fingers are a must if you want this beauty. It will be $12.50 for a full sized bottle of Dulce de Coco. Polish Pickup goes live tomorrow, May 1st, at 11am EST. Polish Pickup is open May 1st – 4th. Links below! Have a great weekend y’all! Stay Safe ❤
