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 ❤

KB Shimmer ~ Beach You To It

*I bought this

Hello! How are we all doing this week? I’m 9 days out from my vacation so I’m getting super excited! I actually bought this polish because it was inspired by the Caribbean. Unfortunately, this polish is no longer available. I just wanna blog it because I love it so. Let’s have a look.

Beach You To It is a bold blue reflective shade filled with color shifting shimmer. Y’all… I was not expecting the opacity of this polish. I audibly gasped! It is totally possible to leave this polish at just one coat. Especially if your nails are shorter. I used two coats just to get the full reflective effect. Formula is comparable to a Zoya Pixie Dust. Not quite as textured but a little. You will definitely need a glitter grabbing top coat for this beauty. I used two coats for my swatches.

Again, this is no longer available. Unless you can catch it in a destash! Don’t forget to keep up with Polish Pickup for more Limited Edition shades from all of your favorite makers! Have a great night! Thanks for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ March 2022 PPU

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey all! Are we ready for this months PPU? It came up really quick this time for me. Glisten & Glow as usual is bringing you some fire! Let’s get to it.

Amethyst Skies is an Amethyst purple polish loaded with a blend of reflective pigment. Under low lighting, a darker amethyst shade shines through with reflective sparkle. Under bright light or with the use of flash, the reflective sparkle morphs into a vibrant, lighter amethyst shade. The inspiration is beautiful, vibrant purple skies that are rarely seen, but once experienced, are breathtaking and majestic. I am LOVING all the reflective polishes lately. How about you? I used 2 perfect coats of this polish plus Glitter Grabber and glossy and matte top coats. I definitely suggest Glitter Grabber because this will leave a slight texture to your nails.

How awesome is Amethyst Skies? This is one of those polishes that I have worn more than once in a very short time! It’s just so pretty and flashy.

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 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 stamping manis

I have been buying Glisten & Glow top coat for 10 years now and it’s all I will buy. It’s just considered a necessity in my budget.

Polish Pickup will be open March 4th – March 7th. Make sure you don’t miss out!

Amethyst Skies: $13 – NO CAP

Top Coat: $8 – NO CAP

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 ❤

*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 ❤

Swamp Gloss ~ MaryJane & Manicures Group Custom

*I purchased this duo

Guys! I don’t know if you know but I am a huge smoker! Marijuana of course. I have my medical license before anyone freaks out! So, I follow this awesome group on Facebook called MaryJane & Manicures. For the month of July there was a custom duo for sale from Swamp Gloss polish. Katie came correct with this set. Let’s have a look.

Sssinister Sssalad is a cerulean jelly polish with a strong shimmer that shifts between green, gold, red, pink and a touch of micro holo glitters. This is just what I see, not a description given by the maker so forgive me if I’m off. It’s soooo pretty. This would make a great base for a space/galaxy mani! There is a very slight (VERY SLIGHT) visible nail line for me. Mostly because my free edge is really white. You should be fine with shorter nails or with not so white free edges. I used 3 perfectly smooth coats for my swatches.

There is also this amazing lip balm called Best Buds. It’s root beer and vanilla ice cream scented! If you like root beer floats this is just perfect for you! Best Buds ingredients are: coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, beeswax, tocopherol (vitamin E), argan oil, rosehip seed oil, EO & FO, sweetner. I have been using it every day since I got it and I can say it’s wonderful. My lips are so soft!

Sadly, I’m pretty sure this is no longer available. I do apologize for that but maybe you could find it in a destash eventually. It really is worth keeping an eye out for. Either way I will link Swamp Gloss below! Thanks so much for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ Beach, Please Summer Crellies 2021

*These polishes were provided for review

You didn’t think Jill was done with summer did you?! Nope! Here she is with 3 neon glitter crelly polishes! Polishes you will definitely need before summer is over. Let’s get right to it!

Good Times & Tan Lines is a white based glitter crellies packed with neon glitters in pink, orange, yellow, light orange, green, purple and watermelon. This one is so fun and colorful. Tons of glitter in there so no fishing required! Formula was wonderful for a white crelly! I used 3 coats for my swatches.

Pool Hair, Don’t Care is a bleached green neon glitter crelly packed with neon glitters in blue, orange, yellow, watermelon, and light orange. This one reminds me of pool balls. No idea why but it does! The colors together just make magic with this base color. Just an awesome shade. I used 2 coats for my swatches.

Nama’ Stay At The Beach is a grape purple glitter crelly with neon glitters in yellow, green, and pink. I think this one is my favorite. Absolutely love the base color. I actually think this one dries a tad darker than it looks in the bottle. Formula was great! I used 2 coats for my swatches.

The Beach, Please Summer Crellies will be available tomorrow, July 9th, at 7pm EST. Each polish will be $10 or you can buy the set for $28! You might as well just buy the set since you save some money lol!! Let me know what you’re grabbing in the comments! Links below for your shopping pleasure! Have a great weekend y’all!

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 ~ Polish Of The Month June 2021

    *This polish was provided for review

    Hello! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty chill. Not much going on at the moment except for this fantastic polish! Let’s jump right in because I’m super excited to show you this beauty 🙂

    Polish Of The Month June 2021 is a multichrome polish that shifts from deep eggplant purple (almost black)/berry/garnet/red/orange/gold/green with added scattered holo. This is the super popular pigment that all makers are using!! I am so glad Jill has one now. I absolutely love the scattered holo in there. It gives it that little something extra. I own another brand with this pigment and I can tell you this formula is way better than the big name expensive stuff! This polish was perfect in just 2 thin coats. Not streaky at all. I used 2 coats for my swatches.

    If you weren’t sure already, you need this! It’s so elegant and fun at the same time! Even better? This polish will only be $10 per bottle!! POTM June 2021 will be available on June 11th at 7pm EST. You definitely just need to be there. It’s worth more than every penny. I hope you all have a fantastic day! Thanks for stopping by ❤
