Hello! How have we all been? I just started school so I have been a little busy. Today I have for you Jill’s POTM for April. I have been loving this series. Let’s check it out.
Polish Of The Month April 2021 is a brilliant silver linear holo with bursts of pink/purple/green color shifting shimmer. This polish is so blingy! It’s like platinum on the nails. The shift is very apparent and just gorgeous. Formula was wonderful as always. 3 thin coats for my swatches.
POTM April 2021 will be available on April 9th at 7pm EST. Each bottle will be $12. Will you be picking this up? You definitely will not regret it. Set your clocks. Stay tuned for Mays POTM as well!! Have a great day y’all ❤
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 ❤
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 ❤
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 25CAD (20 USD). Will you be grabbing this duo? Let me know in the comment section below. Have a great day y’all ❤
*Note 12/21/2020: Boss Lady Lacquer is changing over to a 10-free base which should get rid of the tiny bit of grit in the polishes!! YAY 🙂
Hi y’all! 5 more days! I still have packages coming lol. I hope you are better prepared than I am. My favorite thing so far this year is my tree! Because of the high ceilings in our new apartment, we were able to get a 7 1/2 foot tree. Add the stand and it’s about 8 1/2 feet tall! I love it!!! And you are gonna love these polishes as much as I love my tree! Let’s check them out 🙂
Glow Getter is a yellow gold polish with red and gold holo micro glitters, a gold sparkle and holo shimmer. This one is super unique to my collection. Formula was great but the finish is a little gritty. Not textured but a fine grit. I used Glitter Grabber to smooth it out but I think 2 coats of top coat will also work. 2 coats for my swatches. Price $10.
Lipstick & Café Latte is a med bright pink polish with red and gold holo micro glitters, tiny blue glitters, large iridescent hexes, and a holo shimmer. I love this one so much. the glitters compliment the base color so nicely. Again, this polish dries to a slightly gritty texture. Didn’t even matter to me lol. Glitter Grabber for the win! you could get away with 1 coat for this polish but alas I used 2 coats for my swatches. Price $10
Money Mood is an emerald green with green micro flakes, tiny and small blue holo glitters, small gold holo squares, and a holo shimmer. My love for greens absolutely loves this shade of green. Money Mood is such a fitting name for this one. Formula is good but again with the grit. not even sure what’s causing this. I used 2 coats for my swatches. Price $10
Heels & Hustle is a grape purple polish with multi colored micro glitters, small purple hexes, and a holo shimmer. This is another one where the glitters really compliment the base. Such a fun, awesome polish. Formula is good but grit. Seeing a trend here? Like I said, it’s easy to fix and not an issue at all. Just want to be as up front as possible! I used 2 easy peasy coats for my swatches. Price $10
Boss Lady is a medium dusty blue polish with multi colored micro glitters, small gold holo hexes and squares, and a holo shimmer. On all of these the holo shimmer is so slight but it adds such a pretty sparkle to the polish. This blue color is so fantastic. i absolutely love the holo squares that are in there. Grit, but no biggie. I used 2 perfect coats for my swatches. Price $10
So what do you think? I am super happy with the pigmentation. These are nice bold colors in just 2 easy coats. For a new brands opening collection, I think Boss Lady Polish nailed it! This collection is a one and done type so once they are gone they are totally gone. Make sure you click the shop link below to grab yours! Have a fabulous Christmas week! If you don’t celebrate Christmas I hope your week is just as magical ❤
Hey y’all! First post from my new place! I even have my tree up and decorated already 🙂 I’m so very happy. So, today I have for you Saki Cosmetic’s Winter Cremes. 6 cremes that are perfect for the season. Let’s jump right in, shall we?
Aspen is a dove grey creme polish. I absolutely love a good grey polish. I should reach for them more often. this one had a wonderful application. Opaque in 2 coats but for most of these I used 3 coats because of my super white nail tips. Price $12 CAD
Orianna is an ochre yellow. I love this type of yellow. I don’t like my yellows eye searing. Muted and/or pastels are my favs. This one has a nice creamy leaning crelly formula. 2 coats would work but I used 3 coats for my swatches. Price $12 CAD
Estelle is a light minty creme polish. Ooooohhhh I really like this color. I give in to anything light and minty like this. I just can’t help myself! Isn’t she just gorgeous?! Ok enough lol. This beauty will be opaque in 2 coats but again I used 3 coats for my swatches. Price $12 CAD
Demetria is an olive green creme polish. This is one of those pretty ugly colors. I can’t stop looking at it lol. I think this looks really good with my skin tone. I think it will also compliment any other skin tone. For me it’s so pretty. 2 coats for my swatches with this one. She was a dream to work with. Price $12 CAD
Robyn is a medium dusty grape purple creme. My favorite shade of purple. This collection just has all my favorites lol. I recently have bought 3 polishes with this same color! This one has a fantastic formula and would probably be fine with just 2 coats. Of course I used 3 coats for my swatches. Price $12 CAD
Stella is a deep teal leaning blue creme polish. Definitely a gorgeous color for winter. I feel like this is another color that would flatter any skin tone. It made the perfect night sky for my nail art. She has a great formula as well. 3 coats for my swatches. Price $12 CAD
This whole collection is right up my alley. Such a great set for the winter. These will totally work for any season as well so keep them close at hand. The Winter Cremes will be available on December 18th. Have your clocks set and your buying fingers ready! Have a great day ❤

Hey guys! Last post before the move. I was sent a few mini polishes to swatch for Fanchromatic Nails. Stopped packing for a few to get this written so let’s get right to it because I am just so busy!!
Glimmer is a pastel neon purple with various pastel matte glitters and matte white glitters. This was a tad sheer but the third coat should make it even and opaque. This is so pretty. It could work throughout the year as well. Such a flattering color. I used 3 coats for my swatches. Price $5.50 mini $11 full size.
Most Imperial Majesty is a multi chrome polish with holo flakes. It shifts between brown, gold, copper, rust red, and green. Most of the time you will have this gorgeous brown color. The formula on this was fantastic. 2 coats for my swatches. Price $5.50 mini $11 full size.
Princess Bubblegum is a neon pink polish with square white glitters and gold metallic flakes. This is a true neon and will glow under black light. You also don’t need a white base to make it pop! I really love this one. I couldn’t capture the true brightness but I do have a black light glow photo. 2 thicker coats would work but I used 3 thin coats for my swatches. Price $5.50 mini $11 full size.
All of these polishes are available now in Fanchromatic Nails shop along with tons of other stuff. Make sure you stop by and have a look. Especially now with the holidays so close! I hope you have a wonderful week y’all. Be back soon! Links below.

Hello! Today I have for you the Tooted & Re-Booted Offseason Collection from Bases Loaded Lacquer. These creme polishes watermarble, stamp, and work beautifully in tons of other nail art. There is a lot to see so let’s jump right in.
Off To A Rocky Start is a greige creme polish. I don’t know if you know but Tara has some of the best cremes out there. This is my second time swatching for her and they make me swoon. Off To A Rocky Start has a khaki feel to it color wise. I loved it so much. I usually like bold colors but I really liked how fresh it felt to wear a color like this. If you polish thicker you can totally get away with 1 coat. I used 2 coats for my swatches. Price $9.50
Arizona Fall League is a medium dusty purple creme polish. This is the purple I have been wanting! I didn’t even know how bad I needed this until it was in my hands. It’s so perfect for fall. Formula, to die for. Just perfect. I used 2 coats for my swatches but, again, 1 thicker coat would absolutely work. Price $9.50
Flashin’ Some Leather is a camel creme polish. This one looked like caramel on my nails when I was outside. Such a fun unique color. Ugh, I can’t get enough of these fall colors!! And we haven’t even gotten to my favorite yet lol! As with the other colors, this could be opaque in 1 coat. I, as usual, used 2 coats for my swatches. Price $9.50
TerraCAUGHTa Stealing is a terracotta creme polish. This leaned a little salmon on me. I love it either way. I definitely don’t have anything like it in my collection. If you haven’t noticed, I stuck with sweater art for this collection since it’s fall colors. Well, I inadvertently made the art on this remind me of watermelon lol. Another 1 coater if you polish thicker. I used 2 coats for my swatches. Price $9.50
Bad Hops is a green leaning teal creme polish. And here it is. This one is my favorite. It is just breathtaking. This was the only one I felt 100% ok using only 1 coat. Such a vibrant green. I am obviously on a serious green kick right now. I just really can’t have enough greens. Especially when they are this fantastic! 1 coat for my swatches. Price $9.50
Like I said before, This whole 5 piece collection is multi functional. Check out how beautifully they water marble!!
Did that make you fall even more in love? I hope so! Quick note: There are a few colors here that are VERY heavy on yellow pigment. This could cause some settling on the inside of the bottle and looking like UBS (ugly bottle syndrome). There will be larger mixing balls in the customer bottles so you should be able to shake most of that away. Easy peasy. Tara has tons of amazing polishes so when you go buy these make sure you check out the rest of her
