Hey friends! How has your week been? I hope it was all good. I can even add to the good with this new POTM from Glisten & Glow. It’s just breathtaking. Let’s check it out.
Polish Of The Month May 2021 is a bold royal blue holo micro glitter polish with added linear holo. Just wow. I have very little words. Jill said this was a full coverage glitter but I wasn’t expecting an almost 1 coater!! Formula for such a dense glitter is freaking phenomenal. I used 2 coats plus Glitter Grabber and top coat for my swatches.
So what do you think? I hope you love it as much as I do. This is close to my birthstone as well so I really love it. Polish Of The Month May 2021 releases today, April 9th at 7pm EST. Make sure when you grab it you also grab a bottle of Glitter Grabber. You’ll need it for this polish and it’s such a good product to have if you like glitter. This polish will be $12 per bottle. Glitter Grabber is $7.50 per bottle. I hope you have your shopping fingers ready! See you at 7! Have a great weekend y’all ❤
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 ❤
Hey y’all! Today I bring you a quick post. Glisten & Glow’s Spring ’21 Cuticle Oils are just perfect to go along with the Virtual Spring Break Collection (reviewed HERE). Each scent is just amazing. Let’s check them out!
Lemon Chiffon is a tart and zesty lemon scent with a twist of creamy vanilla lemon pie. I could not have described this any better. That is the exact smell you can expect. Lemon meringue to the max!! This is my favorite of all 6!
Pomegranate Punch is a fresh and light scent of sweet tart and pomegranate. I have never smelled a real pomegranate but with this scent I even feel like I can smell the skin of the fruit. Just fantastic.
Waterfall Mist is the end of a rain shower beneath a waterfall, and the air is left with a clean aquatic aroma. Ya, that made me deep inhale too lol. Sounds amazing and smells just as relaxing. I can almost feel the mist around me as I sniff.
Summer Lovin’ is summer fantasies mixed with sweet tropical flowers. Very tropical. There are scents of fruit in the background as well. This will be perfect when you lounging in the sun or at the beach! So yummy!
Cherry Delight is a sweet cherry scent with a touch of cinnamon. I feel like I just opened a can of maraschino cherries and I’m about to make a sundae. This cherry scent is spot on cherry. I don’t so much smell the cinnamon but it is there in a warmth sensation. It’s really neat! Just a warm cherry deliciousness.
Orange Dreamcicle has bright notes of orange with a citrus twist blended with vanilla and coconut. To me this smells like an Orange Julius. Am I aging myself here?! An Orange Julius was pretty much an orange creamcicle that was a drink instead of an ice cream. It was a fresher orange scent and taste though and that is what I smell here. Fresh sliced orange with some fresh whipped cream. So. Freaking. Delicious!!
Well that’s the collection! How do you feel about them. I love them all. I keep all of them next to me and I randomly pick which one to use each time. Always a welcome surprise. Each cuticle oil pen will be $6.99 and they will be releasing on March 26th at 7pm EST. Which scent will you be picking up? Let me know in the comments! Have a great day ❤
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 ❤
Hey!! I am back with some new pretties 🙂 Nadia of Moonflower Polish has a trio coming this Friday March 12th! The My Old San Juan collection is not for stamping. These are polishes for regular wear. They also are not permanent so make sure you grab these while you can! Shall we?
Frenta al Mar is a light neon blue with red/green/gold aurora pigment and scattered holo. Y’all! I could wear this ever single day! I love the shade of blue and the shimmer is just so good! The formula was also perfection. Just a freaking awesome polish. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.
Boriquen Querida is a dark neon purple with pink/purple/gold shifting shimmer. The shift in this polish was impossible for me to catch but it’s really prevalent in person! This one looks like velvet. I love purple polishes and this is no exception! I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.
En Mi Viejo San Juan is a neon coral jelly polish with a slight red/orange/gold shimmer shift and indigo/purple/orange shifting micro flakes. I have already worn this more than once. It makes me long for summer. As with the first two polishes, the formula on this is great! I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.
What do you think of this trio? Each bottle will be only $9!! They will be available this Friday March 12th. The stock will be on the low side then it will switch to a pre-order. I highly suggest you grab these up as soon as you can! Even though My Old San Juan is a spring collection you can totally rock these straight into summer. Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a great day y’all ❤
Hello! Are you ready for the upcoming PPU? This months theme is Birds, Butterflies, and Bees. Nvr Enuff has made a gorgeous polish for the occasion. Let’s have a look.
Mourning Cloak is a vampy blackened cherry with a sharp pink/red shift. There is also a slight gold chrome effect on the edges in low light. This polish is fantastic. Totally a 1 coater. I used 2 because that’s just what I do. Mourning Cloak was inspired by the mourning cloak butterfly and the deep beautiful shades in it’s wings. The polish matches so perfectly. Nice smooth formula that doesn’t leave stroke marks. Just wonderful. Like I said, I used 2 coats for my swatches.
Mourning Cloak will be available on the Polish Pickup website from March 5th – 8th at 8am PST. It will be $12 and there will be no cap in the US. There will be a cap of 20 for the UK. Make sure you go wish list MC now! Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day everyone ❤
Hey y’all! Today I have for you a monthly polish. Nvr Enuff Polish brings you Mary’s Monthly Mary’s Nightmare Moon. This one is jaw dropping. Let’s have a look.
Mary’s Nightmare Moon is a deep blurple jelly packed full of pink and blue glitter with a blue micro sparkle. MNM is inspired by Princess Luna, the keeper of night, from My Little Pony. I did not expect this polish to glow the way it does. In any light you can see the blue micro sparkle. So. Freaking. Gorgeous!! I can’t gush enough about this one. The jelly formula went on nice and smooth and was totally even. Even with all the glitter. I only needed a single coat of top coat for my swatches because the glitter stayed embedded in the jelly and didn’t leave much texture at all. Such a well done polish. 2 coats for my swatches.
Do you need it? I think you need it! Its available now for $11. Run, don’t walk, and grab your bottle. I hope you enjoyed Mary’s Nightmare Moon as much as I do. Thanks so much for stopping by 🙂 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 ❤
