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 ~ 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 ~ 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 ~ Virtual Spring Break Collection

    *These polishes were provided for review

    *Picture Heavy

    Hello! How are you all enjoying this fine weather? I’m KIDDING!! It’s been so cold and windy here in CT. Next week should feel more like spring is coming. I can give you a little relief from the weather with this spring collection. “Since we aren’t able to travel due to Covid19, Glisten & Glow is taking you on a virtual spring break with this beautiful 5 piece creme collection.” Let’s get right into it.

    Passports & Partying is a peachy coral creme polish. As with ALL of Jill’s cremes, the formula is perfection. Smooth, self leveling, and they dry with a nice shine. I used 2 buttery coats for my swatches.

    Lounging & Laughing is a medium orchid creme polish. This one is amazing. Super pigmented. Drool worthy formula and totally opaque in only 1 coat! I actually only used 1 coat for my swatches!

    Sailing & Sightseeing is a misty teal creme polish. For this one the most color accurate shots are the bottle shots. My pictures pulled a little too much to the blue side. Well, we all know I’m a super sucker for a color like this! Definitely 1 of my 2 favorites from this collection. I used 2 coats for my swatches but this could be a 1 coater if you polished carefully.

    Beaches & Bikinis is a light violet creme polish. This one is almost neon. This is my other favorite. This is a color that can get you through most of the year. As usual the formula was awesome. I used 2 coats for my swatches.

    Sandals & Sunsets is a medium grey creme polish with strong purple undertones. Y’all, how freaking gorgeous is this color?! It definitely leans purple like whoa. Fantastic formula. I used 2 coats for my swatches.

    I also want to show you that they watermarble and stamp. I did a swirl design for the watermarble which is difficult to do unless you have good quality polish. I also stamped over a black to white gradient so you could see each color over white and black at the same time. Stamped from thumb to pinky are Sandals & Sunsets, Beaches & Bikinis, Sailing & Sightseeing, Lounging & Laughing, and Passports & Partying. Check ’em out!

    How do you like the Virtual Spring Break Collection? I was in love the moment I saw a spoiler in G&G‘s Facebook group. Just a quick note: All products are Glisten & Glow. Top coat, matte top coat, glitter grabber, all polishes, and ridge filling base coat. If you haven’t noticed, I keep stock of multiple G&G products. Jill is my go to for absolutely everything that it takes to make a mani perfect and lasting. Not a sponsored plug lol. I buy most of this stuff myself. I just highly recommend it. Anyways, The Virtual Spring Break Collection will be available on March 26th at 7pm EST. They will be $10 each bottle. Make sure you don’t miss these. They are fabulous and multi functional. Totally worth every penny. Stay tuned for the other part of the spring release! Have a great day ❤

    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 ❤
