Glisten & Glow ~ August 2022 PPU

*These products were provided for review

Hey! Can you believe it’s August already? I feel like I say this every month but damn. It just goes so fast! As usual Jill from Glisten & Glow is bringing you some fire! A reflective glitter polish and a cuticle oil/remover duo. Let’s have a look.

Poor Unfortunate Souls (You sang it too right?) is a black based jelly polish loaded with color shifting ucc flakes that shift from purple/blue/pink/red/orange/green. It has the added twinkle of purple reflective glitters. Did you know that reflective glitters are triangles? The inspiration for this polish is… you guessed it! The popular, dark, and mysterious Disney villain Ursula from the hit movie The Little Mermaid. This polish is the sh*t. Seriously, it’s just so freaking cool looking. And as a bonus it glows under black light! I’ve included a glow pic 🙂 This formula is on the thicker side but nothing that will interfere with polishing. It also dries slightly textured so you will want to swing by Jill’s shop and grab some Glitter Grabber. I used 2 coats plus Glitter Grabber, Top Coat, and Matte Top Coat for my swatches.

Also available is the Cuticle Oil and Cuticle Remover Duo in the scent Sun & Sand. Oh my gosh you guys! It’s the beach in your palms!! As I type I have already finished my cuticle remover pen. It immediately became my favorite and I used the hell out of it lol. Someone once told me they want a beach scent with no coconut! They said it was impossible to find. Well my dear, whoever you are (it’s been years) this is for you. Scent description: A tropical beach breeze of sweet orange flower, lemony citrus, fresh lavender, and powdery musk. I have no idea how that translates to beach but it does.

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 your cuticles with your favorite tool. Finally, wash hands and cuticles thoroughly with soap and water. G&G Cuticle Remover pen contains: distilled water, potassium hydroxide, coconut oil, and fragrance.

Glisten & Glow’s Cuticle Oil hydrates cuticles, nail plate, eponychium, hyponychium, and proximal nail fold. Softens and protects all of the above areas. Stimulates nail growth. Improves texture to all of the areas listed above. Increases nail flexibility, preventing breakage. Is a daily nail care maintenance. G&G 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.

Poor Unfortunate Souls: $13 NO CAP

Glisten & Glow ~ April 2022 PPU

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all! It’s that time again. PPU is quickly approaching. Wish listing is open so make sure you filling that up. While you’re at it, add Glisten & Glow’s contribution to your list. It’s a fun stunner this month! Let’s check it out.

Minty Fresh is a white based crelly polish loaded with mint and blue metallic flakes. This polish is just like a toothpaste! So nice and fresh. Inspired by the element Fluorine (F) and it’s use in toothpaste! Keep that Smile Bright with Minty Fresh Toothpaste! If you know the maker, Jill you know that she is an avid tooth brusher! She’s huge into dental care!

* Fluoride “remineralizes” tooth enamel by bonding to areas of decay and attracting other minerals, like calcium, to the site of the damage.
* Fluoride prevents further decay by stimulating the production of fluorapatite , a type of tooth enamel that is highly resistant to acids and bacteria.
* Fluoride exerts antibacterial properties that not only inhibit the growth of bacteria but prevent the microbes from sticking to teeth.

Did you know that stuff? I had no idea! Anyhow let’s get to the next product!


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!

Minty Fresh: $13 – NO CAP

Glitter Grabber: $8 – NO CAP

Polish Pickup will be open from 4/1/22 at 11 am EST – 4/4/22 at 11:59 pm EST. Make sure you add Minty Fresh and Glitter Grabber to your cart! Thanks so much for stopping by ❤

*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:

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.

Glisten & Glow ~ December 2021 PPU

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all! today I have for you Jill’s offerings for PPU. The theme this month is Cozy Vibes. Jill was inspired by the Danish word of Hygge and the life that it represents. The warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people. Let’s check it out.

Hygge Life is an ivory base with pink undertones loaded with iridescent flakes. Holy mother this is gorgeous. My pics don’t do this one justice. The brush shot right above is close! It’s so soft and full of flakes. “A perfect polish for the everyday/work friendly life that is a palette cleanse from the bold and vibrant. Just a simply delicate and refreshed manicure vibe.” I prefer the bold and vibrant but I really enjoyed this polish. I wore it for a few days! It is flakie dense but it still applies nicely. I used 3 thin smooth coats for my swatches.

Also up for grabs is 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 be dry, durable, long lasting with days or weeks of no tip wear or chipping!

If you haven’t tried Glisten & Glows Top Coat, your life is just not complete. It will change your whole nail game! I have been buying top coat from Jill since 2013 I think and it’s the only top coat I have purchased since. I actually just grabbed some from her Black Friday sale.

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 ~ 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

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!

    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.

    LevelUP Lacquer ~ Oct. 2020 PPU

    *This polish was provided for review

    Hello! Home from my quick little getaway and I feel so refreshed. It’s amazing what 2 nights on the water can do for you. Anyways, I am back with LevelUp Lacquer‘s contribution for October’s PPU theme of animation! Let’s have a look at this polish inspired by water breathing (10th form) from Demon Slayer (Anime series).

    Constant Flux is a medium blue crelly with a scattered holographic shimmer and white and iridescent glitters in multiple shapes and sizes. I love the way the iridescent glitters subtly flash through the base color. This polish was a little on the thick side but nothing you can’t work with! This polish can be worn in 2-3 coats or layered over a darker color. I used 3 coats for my swatches. Price $11. Cap: 250 US / 50 UK

    with flash

    I love Constant Flux. It’s something I have never seen before and it’s so very pretty. PPU will be open from October 2nd – October 5th. Don’t forget to add this unique beauty to your wish list! Links below. Have a great week y’all 🙂
