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 ~ 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 ~ 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.

    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 ~ May 2021 PPU/IPU

    *These polishes were provided for review

    Hey y’all! How was your weekend so far? Mine has been full of vacation planning!! My husband and I are renewing our vows on our 10 year anniversary at a resort if all goes to plan! SO. FREAKING. EXCITED!! So my weekend has been great lol. Let me bring you something pretty to get you through the rest of this beautiful Sunday. Jill from Glisten & Glow is bringing us the goods as usual. Let’s have a looksie.

    Purple Rose is a vibrant purple mega linear holographic polish with an intense rainbow and blue flame. Here is Jill’s inspiration: “Purple roses have been a long standing guilty pleasure in my family for many years. My grandmother would buy herself one purple rose every month just to brighten her day! Her favorite color was purple and she just loved how unique and special they were. When she passed in May of 2006, we adorned her coffin with them. Yearly on the anniversary of her death all of the women in my family get a purple rose in her honor on that day.” That is just so sweet ❤

    Purple Rose can be worn 2 ways which makes this polish just as unique. You can wear it as is without top coat and get that gorgeous purple look. Or you can add top coat and it will transform into a violet blue almost indigo. The holo flame is still just as strong in the sun as well! So fantastic worn either way!!

    Purple Rose will be $12.50 per bottle with no cap.

    Polish Of The Month May 2021 is a bold royal blue holo micro glitter polish with added linear holo. Just wow. I have very little words.
