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

    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 ~ 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 ~ 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 ❤

    Nvr Enuff Polish ~ Unicorn Creme Holo’s

    *These polishes were provided for review

    Omg guys!! I have the most beautiful collection to show you today. Nvr Enuff Polish has brought us the Unicorn Creme Holo collection that’s fit for… well, a unicorn!! 7 pigmented cremes that are just breathtaking. Let’s get started since this will be a long one.

    Unicorn Moon is a greyed over white holo creme polish. Let me tell you now. All of these polishes have a flawless formula. Perfect in 2 coats every time!! They all also dry very shiny on their own. I love this one. This isn’t grey at all, just a tad tinted. This shade would be great any time of year. I used 2 coats.

    Unicorn Clouds is a pastel blurple holo creme polish. This leans a tad more purple than my pics show. The bottle shots are an accurate representation of the color. Perfect polish all the way around. I appreciate that these dry so shiny and that they dry decently quickly. I used 2 coats for my swatches.

    Unicorn Daydream is a light sunset pink holo. This one leans a little orchid to me. Supper pretty on and I think a color that would flatter any skin tone. 2 coats for my swatches.

    Unicorn Water is a beautiful bright mint holo creme polish. I would be willing to say 1/5 of my 1600 bottle collection is in the mint family. I love love love this polish. Smooth as butter. 2 coats for my swatches.

    Unicorn Rainstorm is a deep teal holo creme polish. What a gorgeous color. I can’t wait to wear this one again. Perfect as per the norm. 2 coats for my swatches.

    Unicorn Bouquet is bright rose pink holo creme polish. This leans a tad purple on me. Definitely makes me think of flowers! An absolute dream to work with. 2 coats for my swatches.

    Unicorn Legend is a bright violet holo creme polish. This is the perfect grapey colored polish. I really enjoyed this one. This was just as perfect as the rest. 2 coats for my swatches.

    Aren’t they just fabulous?!?! The perfect creme formula with added holo. Does it really get any better than that? These will be perfect bases for any nail art. I can’t wait to revisit these! The entire 7 piece Unicorn Creme Holo collection will be $70 or $11 individually plus shipping. They release Saturday February 27th at 11am PST. I promise you won’t want to miss these polishes. If you wish to know anything I used in my manis feel free to ask in the comments 🙂 Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day ❤

    Saki Cosmetics & 1422 Designs ~ Summer Collab

    *These polishes were provided for review

    Hello!! Long time no blog. I honestly just haven’t been swatching much. I have been painting still just not posting. But here we are with some new stuff. Let’s have a look.

    Bahama Mama is a shimmery coral pink. The shimmer in this polish is just breathtaking. Formula, as expected, was wonderful. Bahama Mama would look amazing worn to the beach! I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

    Jamaican Breeze is an orchid crelly polish with purple-pink-gold shifting shimmer and purple holo dust. I love how subtle the holo is. Such a nice little added sparkle. Highly impressed by this new to me indie brand! I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

    What do you think? Purples and pinks always go together in my opinion. These are no exception. Fun Fact: In my YouTube swatch video I used 2 songs. The names of the songs, in order, are Summer and Dreams. Thought that was really neat for the Summer Dreams Collab! These polishes will be available in Saki Cosmetics shop as a pre-order from February 21st – 28th. This set will be 25 CAD (20 USD). Will you be grabbing this duo? Let me know in the comment section below. Have a great day y’all ❤

    *These polishes were provided for review

    Hey guys! Glisten & Glow is back for October’s Polish Pickup. If you haven’t seen the pics yet hold your hats. She’s a doozy! Polish Pickup‘s theme for October is Cartoon/Animation. Truly Outrageous was inspired by Jill’s fanatic love for Jem And The Holograms. Let’s have a looksie 🙂

    Truly Outrageous is exactly that. Truly outrageous!! This polish is a burple jelly polish with various shades, shapes, and sizes of pink glitters. Pretty much the epitome of burple color. My pics do lean a little blue so I’ll make sure you know what pic is most color accurate. Truly Outrageous is so fun! The sparkle is fantastic and the depth is just awesome. And it’s SO squishy! I’m leaving for vacation tomorrow and I do believe this will be on my toes. I used 3 thin coats for my swatch plus glitter grabber and top coat. Price $12.50 Cap: Under 395 for both US & UK.

    Most Color Accurate!

    Before I show you my fun nail art, I want to tell you about Jill’s top coat. Glisten & Glow Top Coat is an award winning, fast drying, glossy top coat. After using this top coat your nails will be dry in 2-4 minutes or less and they will be durable and long lasting with days to weeks of no tip wear or chipping! It has a crystal clear, shiny/glossy, “wet/gel” like appearance. It seals and evens glitters and flakie polishes. It won’t smear your nail art and it glows under black light! Dang that’s a lot lol. I say this all the time but I have been buying this top coat since 2013 and I haven’t bought another brand since! I have reviewed but never purchased anything but this. It has my heart and my hands ❤ Price $7.50 Cap: US-230 UK-5

    Polish Pickup will only be open from October 2 at 11am EST until October 5 at 11:59pm EST. Make sure these go on your wish list!! Have a great day! Links below 🙂

    Glisten & Glow

    Hey y’all, I’m back. No house. Turns out it needed a new foundation and the seller refused to pay for it. So, for now we are just looking at apartments and will go back to house hunting in a year or so. I’m so sad. The location was EVERYTHING!! But that’s that. Hopefully in a few years we can look again in the same neighborhood. Since this is a review blog, I suppose should get to the reviews huh!? Let’s get to it.

    Mystery Polish July 2020 is a bright blue crelly polish with black and black holo glitters in various sizes. To me this is just fantastic. Just look at that blue! It really makes a statement. I’m not always the biggest glitter fan but I absolutely had to have these few polishes. Jill’s crelly formula is as smooth as silk. They level out nicely on their own even with all the glitter. I used only 2 coats in my swatch video but I should have used 3. My pics are 3 coats. The white of my nail shows through without that last coat. Price: $10

    Mystery Polish August 2020 is a teal crelly polish with black and black holo glitter in various sizes. Oh look! Another teal… I just can’t help myself. For real. It’s become an obsession lately! It just looks so good with my skin tone. This super smooth polish went on perfectly in 3 thin coats. Price $10

    Mystery Polish September 2020 is a bright green crelly with black and black holo glitters in various sizes. I had to have this one because my birthday is in September. It turned out to be my favorite. This shade of green is just so fun and definitely eye catching. The holo also seems to be a bit more visible in this one as well. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches. Price: $10

    Overall, I am super happy with this purchase! I have already worn the teal more than once and so has my daughter. It’s also on her toes as well as mine. Like I said before, obsessed. I’m not sure I have ever had a polish with a fill line in less than a week lol. If you are interested in any of these, the link to Jill’s shop will be down below. I hope you all have a great day!
