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 ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ November 2021 PPU-IPU

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey! It’s that time again! PPU is back with a theme of Game Night. I’m super excited for this month. My husband has our only income so I don’t get to purchase polish often but I have my eye on something specific this month and I already got the OK!! Today I have something for you to add to your wish list. Let’s check it out.

On Thin Ice is an icy powder blue polish loaded with color shifting shimmer that shifts between orange/red/yellow/green. The inspiration for this polish comes from when Jill was a child. “As kids we love snow days! After we had gone sledding and made snow angels, we would come inside to warm up with hot coco and play our favorite winter game of Thin Ice! Always trying to make sure that our marble wasn’t the one that “broke the ice”.” I love this polish. It is so soft and pretty. The shimmer just jumps off of the nails! It’s so prominent. And it’s so shifty. Of course my pics do it no justice… You will just have to buy it so you can wear it yourself!! I used 3 thin coats of perfection for my swatches.

Now for the ever popular Glitter Grabber. Glitter Grabber is an amazing product that gets applied after any glitter or flakie dense manicure is done and it’s fully dry 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!

Glitter Grabber has quickly become a holy grail product in my arsenal. As a swatcher I grab for it often and it never disappoints. You can also add a coat of Glitter Grabber under any glitter or flakie polish for easier removal. There are so many uses for this product. I highly recommend that it makes it’s way into your wish list then into your cart!! Just look at what it can do. My pics, in order, start with no Glitter Grabber. Then with 1 coat of Glitter Grabber. Then with 1 coat of Glitter Grabber with 1 coat of top coat.

Now for the deets. Polish Pickup will be open from November 5th 11am EST until November 8th 11:59pm EST

On Thin Ice: $13 NO CAP

Glitter Grabber: $8 NO CAP

Make sure these make it to your wish list then your cart. Luckily Jill likes everyone to get what they want so no caps!!I hope you all have a great rest of the week. Thanks so much for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ Halloween Quad 2021

*These polishes were provided for review

It’s finally spooky season! How excited are you??? I’m ecstatic!! Now, straight through the holidays, is my favorite time of the year. Of course Jill will have you covered! Today I am bringing you Glisten & Glow’s Halloween Quad! 4 amazing polishes that fit for the season and beyond! Let’s have a look!

Ahead Of The Carve is a vibrant orange polish with color shifting shimmer that goes from red to green to gold. This one is amazing! The color payoff is fantastic. This color just jumps off your nails. Vibrant is a great description of this color. Formula was nice and smooth. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

Mummy Of The Year is a white based crelly polish with added glitters in brown, copper, and orange. Fall in a bottle. I love the mix of glitter colors in here. Very fitting for the fall season. Formula was great even with all the glitters. I do recommend Glitter Grabber for this polish if you want that glass like finish. I used 2 coats for my swatches.

Scare Way To Heaven is a deep purple holo polish with color shifting shimmers from blue/aqua/purple and holo micro flakes. Yup! Love this one. The blue/aqua shift is just so freaking pretty. And can we just talk about the name? Jill is so clever! I used 2 smooth coats for my swatches.

Witch Way To The Candy is a black holo polish with added micro flakes. Y’ALL!! This is a 1 coat polish. Perfect formula and super pigmented. Seriously, a must have for any nail polish enthusiast! I’m wearing this right now and I just can’t get enough! It’s perfect for all year round as well. It is a 1 coat polish but I of course used 2 just because for my swatches.

That’s the Halloween Quad! What do you think? Aren’t they just perfect for the season? These polishes will be available on October 8th at 7pm EST. Each polish will be $10 or you can just buy the quad for $35! BUY ALL THE HALLOWEEN POLISH!!! I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week! Thanks for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ October 2021 PPU/IPU

*These products were provided for review

Hello! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Hopefully this post will help you get through your Monday! I have for you Glisten & Glow‘s offering for this months PPU theme of Monsters & Mythical Creatures. Jill went a little out of the box with her Monster inspired polish. “A play on the “monster” theme! We spun revive the monster based on the famous Monster energy drink series of Rehab Monster – Raspberry Tea! It’s the only monster I want to revive each day!” Let’s check it out.

Revive Your Monster is a fuchsia jelly/crelly polish with various shapes and sizes of black, gun metal, light grey, and silver holo glitters. This one is packed with glitter so I highly recommend grabbing Glitter Grabber as well. Don’t worry though. It’s not chunky or hard to work with. It’s actually really nice to apply. I used 3 easy peasy coats along with Glitter Grabber to smooth it out and a glossy top coat.

My swatches came out a little bleached for some reason. This polish is actually brighter than what it shows here. I apologize for that greatly!

Also, for IPU Jill is bringing us a cuticle remover pen and an oil pen duo. The scents compliment each other perfectly too! The cuticle remover pen is scented in fresh picked apples (fresh, juicy apples picked right from the orchard). The cuticle oil is scented in caramel apple (tart, crispness of apples layered with the rich, creaminess of caramel). Glisten & Glow cuticle oil pen is a custom blend of jojoba oil, vitamin e oil, grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil, sunflower oil, argon oil, castor oil, acai berry extract, tea tree oil and fragrance oil. Glisten & Glow cuticle remover pen contains: distilled water, potassium hydroxide, coconut oil, and fragrance. 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.

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

I hope you love it all. I know I do 🙂 The pen scents just scream fall! And the polish is just exquisite! Super pretty. These things will all be available from October 1st at 11am EST until October 4th at 11:59pm EST. Set your alarms!

Revive Your Monster: $12.50 per bottle NO CAP

Cuticle Pens Duo: $12 per set NO CAP

I hope you all have a great week ahead! Thanks so much for stopping by ❤

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 ~ Fall 2021 Cuticle Oil Pens

    *These oil pens were provided for review

    Hey my loves! Today is the day! It’s the release of the Autumn By The Sea collection and these fantastic smelling cuticle oils! I’m a bit behind so let’s jump right in.

    Doughnuts is like you just walked in to a doughnut shop in the crisp morning with the scent of fresh, warm doughnuts rolled in cinnamon sugar. Exactly the scent. I couldn’t have described it better. Pretty sure my older daughter is stealing this one!

    Blueberry Cobbler is blueberry bliss with warm notes of vanilla. I wish these were lickable. I could seriously just eat this one. So yummy.

    Morning Wake Up is a hot cup of hazelnut coffee with a dash of french vanilla creamer and a dash of sweet. Yup, this one is my favorite. Is anyone really surprised here? Coffee shop scent to the max!

    Fresh Picked Apples is fresh, juicy apples picked right from the orchard. Are we sure we can’t eat these??? There is nothing better than eating an apple in the orchard while picking apples and this takes me to those memories with my family<3 This one is special.

    Pumpkin Spice Latte the hart of fall, pumpkin with cinnamon. I feel like this is even more of a staple here in New England. I have not had my pumpkin fix yet this season but it’s coming!

    Banana Nut Bread – Mouth watering scent of freshly baked banana bread. A delicious combo of ripe bananas, roasted walnuts, warm vanilla, and a hint of cinnamon spice. This one is on the subtle side. My younger daughter has already taken this one. Banana bread is a favorite in this house so this one was awesome to have, if only for a day or two lol.

    Caramel Apple is the tart crispness of apple layered with the rich, creaminess of caramel. Fair vibes for sure! I am so ashamed to say that I haven’t been to a fair in about a decade. But I do remember the amazing fair food and this would be one of them.

    These oil pens will be available on August 27th at 7pm EST. Each pen will be $6.99 or you can buy all 7 for $43!Which ones will you be grabbing? Stay tuned! Jill has some fall holos coming soon as well!! Have a great weekend y’all. thanks for stopping by ❤

    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!
