Jessica Cosmetics ~ U Got The Look

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey! How are we all doing? I’m still grieving the loss of my vacation so there’s that lol! Take me back. I will say I am loving the weather all of a sudden. It’s been nice and sunny so I have windows open. I love this time of year so much more this year than ever before. I have been constantly polishing. Like 2 times daily lately and I keep grabbing for the U Got The Look collection from Jessica Cosmetics. Specifically the purples. Let’s check them out.

Paisley Pink is a medium pink creme polish. The Phenom line is very pigmented. These could be one coaters for shorter nails or if you polish thicker. The formula is fantastic. I used the Phenom base coat and the Phenom Finale Shine top coat for all of my swatches and art. This swatch is 2 coats.

Violet Cream is a medium violet creme polish. This one is my favorite. I. Can’t. Stop. Using. This! It’s such a bold shade. Formula is butter. This polish stamps as well as the other two. Just wonderful quality. I used 2 coats with Phenom base coat and Phenom Finale Shine top coat for my swatches.

Purple Reign is a deep violet creme polish. This shade totally compliments the other purple. Such a creamy formula. These are all self leveling. Again, the quality is just top notch. When you’re considering a creme polish, you can’t go wrong with this Phenom line. I used 2 coats plus Phenom base coat and Phenom Finale Shine top coat.

Overall, these are fantabulous. Pigmented, smooth as butter, self leveling, and great for art! The top and base coat are just the cherry on top to be honest. The top coat is great for shine and for not smudging nail art. The base coat leaves an amazing shine with just 1 swipe. The tops also come off to reveal a smaller brush top. Much easier for small hands while polishing. Each polish in this collection as well as the top coat is $11.20. The base coat is $10.78. Everything here is available now so don’t wait to grab these multi use polishes. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! Thanks for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ Season Of Weddings Collection

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all! Today I have for you a beautiful collection based on wedding season! Were you married this time of year? I was married on March 30th so pretty close! How I wish these were available in 2012 when I got married lol. When I was married I had acrylic nails put on for the last time. It was that set that made me stop biting my nails and then I got into nail polish! Enough with the history lesson. Let’s get to the goods!

Bring On The Bling! is a white based flakie crelly loaded with silver metallic flakes. FAVORITE!!! I can’t even give you a good reason but I just love this one. So simple but so perfect for the occasion. This polish is nice and creamy and lays pretty flat itself. I do recommend Glitter Grabber though since this polish is so flakie dense. I used 3 thin coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches.

Brides & Bubbly is a white based flakie crelly loaded with rose gold metallic flakes. How pretty is this? It definitely gives off a champagney vibe. This color is also so perfect for wedding season. Very feminine and delicate. I used 3 thin coats plus Glitter Grabber and top and matte top coats for my swatches.

I Do! Crew is a white based flakie crelly loaded with copper metallic flakes. This is an edgy wedding polish. I love the antique feel of the copper flakes. This polish will make a great fall mani as well. Wonderful formula on this one just like the rest. 3 thin coats plus Glitter Grabber, top coat and matte top coats for my swatches.

Better Together is a white based flakie crelly loaded with purple metallic flakes. This is my second favorite. I am actually wearing this as I type! This one is fun and will work for any season. Super pretty. I used 3 thin, perfect coats plus Glitter Grabber, top coat and matte top coats for my swatches.

All of these polishes have a fantastic formula and lay pretty flat for being so full of flakies. That being said, I still highly recommend Glitter Grabber before your top coat. It will just give you that glass like finish. Each of these polishes will be $11. Or you could save a few dollars and buy the whole Season Of Weddings collection for $40. The collection will be available Friday May 13th at 7pm EST. This is a limited edition quad so don’t miss out! Have a great day y’all! Thanks for stopping by ❤

Jessica Cosmetics ~ Beauty In Bloom

*These polishes were provided for review

Hello! How are we all doing? I’m back with a fabulous spring collection from Jessica Cosmetics. Beauty In Bloom consists of 6 creme polishes in some bold beautiful shades. Let’s jump right in!

Hydrangea is a super light pale peach creme polish. I was very pleasantly surprised by how shiny all of these cremes dry! Because of the streaky nature of these very light polishes I used 3 coats for my swatches with JC Phenom Finale Shine Top Coat and a matte top coat.

Camellia is a soft pink creme with peach undertones. This is such a beautiful color. I couldn’t wait to put some art on it! Good formula but I still used 3 thin coats plus JC Phenom Finale Shine Top Coat and a matte top coat for my swatches.

Forget Me Not is a baby blue creme polish. I didn’t expect it but this one is my favorite. Perfect formula. And again, super shiny before adding top coat! I used 2 thin coats plus JC Phenom Finale Shine Top Coat and a matte top coat for my swatches.

Queen Of The Meadow is a chocolate milk colored creme polish. I love this one. Almost could be a 1 coater. Super smooth and creamy formula. I used 2 thin coats plus JC Phenom Finale Shine Top Coat and a matte top coat for my swatches.

Dahlia is a bright coral creme polish. This one is nice and bright. Perfect for spring and summer. Wonderful formula as well. 2 coats with JC Phenom Finale Shine Top Coat and a matte top coat for my swatches.

Morning Glory is a deep blue creme polish. I love dark blues like this. Formula was amazing. 2 coats plus JC Phenom Finale Shine Top Coat and a matte top coat for my swatches.

Overall, I love this collection. Who doesn’t love a good creme polish. Next I will see if they water marble. I have already stamped with them so that definitely works! I used the Jessica Cosmetics base coat for every mani as well. The base coat is a great quick dry, shiny base. The Phenom Finale Shine Top Coat was great. Shiny, quick drying, and it didn’t smear my art too bad. I would definitely recommend both the Phenom base and top coats. These polishes are 7 free, cruelty free, and vegan friendly. Each polish is $10 and they are available now so don’t wait! Links will be below. Thanks for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ 12th Anniversary Trio

*These polishes were provided for review

Hi! This collection I have for you today is very special! It is to celebrate Jill’s 12 years in business as Glisten & Glow! March 10th was the official date but now we have this. A prolonged celebration if you will. All you purple lovers will need the trio hands down. Let’s have a look.

We Still Got It! is an iris purple jelly polish with color shifting flakes that shift from purple to blue and added blue reflective glitters. I love the flakes in this one. They make this polish. The reflective glitters were pretty subtle and not too textured at all. I still would say to use Glitter Grabber though because of the flakies. Great formula for a jelly polish. I used 3 thin coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches.

Couldn’t Have Done It Without YOU! is a white based crelly polish loaded with pink, purple, and blue metallic flakes. I love this one. it’s so fun looking. like confetti! Fits in perfectly with the celebration theme. This one DEFINITELY needs Glitter Grabber. It’s so flakie filled it’s nuts. Formula is still great as per the norm for Jill! I used 3 thin coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches.

Truckin’ It Through Twelve is an icy lilac polish with added color shifting shimmers that shift from orange, red, yellow, and green with purple reflective glitters. Again, the reflective glitter is pretty subtle. Gives you the perfect amount of low key bling! The shift in this polish is everything! If you pick up just one from this trio make it this one. Again with the Glitter Grabber! I used 3 thin coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches.

Purple lovers, do you need them? I thought so lol!! The 12th Anniversary Trio will be available April 15th 2022 at 7pm EST. Each polish will be $11.50 or you can save some change and buy the trio for $30. Either way you won’t be upset. These are amazing as always. Let me know in the comments which one or ones you’ll be grabbing. Have a great week y’all. Thanks for stopping by ❤

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 ❤

Last Bud Not Least is a beige creme polish. Ah the neutral. I used to hate these “plain” colors but now I love them. They are so good for so many things. This is one of those neutrals that should compliment everyone. Just an amazing shade. I used 2 exquisite coats with glossy and matte top coats for my swatches.

I Lilac You A Lot is a light lilac purple creme polish. I love this shade of blue toned purple. Perfect for spring! This one is also pretty pigmented so possibly a 1 coater if your super careful. I used 2 buttery coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches.

Sea The Beauty In Every Day is a medium blue creme polish. This color is definitely bolder than the rest! I love it!! Like I really really love it. It’s my favorite of the collection and my bottle already has a fill line lol! I just can’t get enough of this fabulous shade. I used 2 perfect coats (again, I could have used just 1 coat) plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches.

Glisten & Glow ~ March 2022 PPU

*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:

* 2-4 minutes or less and your nails will 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 stamping manis

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.

Polish Pickup will be open March 4th – March 7th. Make sure you don’t miss out!

Amethyst Skies: $13 – NO CAP

Glisten & Glow ~ Love Songs Trio Vol. 2

*These polishes were provided for review

Today is the day y’all! Jill is releasing the Limited Edition Love Songs Trio Vol. 2! Have you seen swatches yet? I have seen some and they are just so pretty! This collection is so well rounded and perfect together. There is a flakie, a glitter, and a metallic. Let’s take a look.

Unchained Melody is a clear based polish loaded with color shifting chrome flakes that shift from purple/red/copper/green/gold with added fuchsia shreds and gold shimmer. This one has sooo much depth. The fuchsia shreds make this polish. Formula was buttery perfect. Who doesn’t love a full coverage flakie polish?!?! I used 3 thin coats for my swatches with Glisten & Glow’s Glitter Grabber and glossy and matte top coats.

I’ll Stand By You is a purple based jelly polish loaded with smaller red glitters and red holo glitters. Omg I love this one. Purple and red is my most favorite color combo! The formula is impeccable for a jelly base. It just glides on so smoothly. The glitters are so eye catching. The glitters leave a little texture so I suggest grabbing Glitter Grabber as well with your purchase. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches with Glisten & Glow’s Glitter Grabber and glossy and matte top coats.

Can’t Help Falling In Love is a red jelly polish loaded with red/gold/green/blue color shifting aurora shimmers. So, I said this was a metallic and I was wrong but it seriously looks like it!! This one actually ended up being my favorite. This went straight onto my toes! I don’t know what it is about this one but I just can’t get enough. It just glows. I was also a little shocked because the first coat looked like it was going to be pink and at the end it’s almost an orange! Check out my YouTube swatches to see what I mean! Formula on this was perfection and it was nice and smooth so no Glitter Grabber needed for this one. 3 thin coats for my swatches with Glisten & Glow’s glossy and matte top coats.

Which is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below what you’ll be grabbing!! The Love Songs Trio Vol. 2 release tonight, January 14th at 7pm EST. Each polish on it’s own will be $11. Or you can buy the trio for $32. Don’t miss out as these are limited edition polishes. One batch and done! I hope you have a fantastic weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ January 2022 PPU/IPU

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all! Sorry for the recent break. I had Covid and just took some time for myself for that. I will report that because I am vaccinated, the sickness was more like a cold for me. I was very lucky. Enough about that. Let’s get to the polish!

Sweet N’ Low On The Go is a soft bubble gum pink polish loaded with blue/purple iridescent flakes and added aqua and blue shimmers. Wow is this sweet! It’s that pink that just screams sweetener. Such a perfect match to the inspiration! Sweet N’ Low On The Go is inspired by the pink sugar substitute that is always within reach at your local coffee shop/restaurant or in your purse to sweeten your favorite drink or food. The flakes in this polish are so abundant. It makes the polish a tad chunky. It lays flat upon application though so no worries. Because of the flakes you will also need Glitter Grabber. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

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! I used it in my pictures above for Sweet N’ Low On The Go. It made my finished mani as smooth as glass.

Here are the deets:

Sweet N’ Low On The Go: $13 NO CAP

Glitter Grabber: $8 NO CAP

Polish Pickup will be open 1/7/22 at 11 am EST –1/10/22 at 11:59 pm EST. Don’t miss out! Let me know in the comments what you’ll be picking up this month! I Hope you all have a fantastic week ahead. Thanks so much for stopping by ❤

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!
  • Crystal clear, shiny, glossy “wet/gel like” appearance.
  • Seals and evens glitter and flakie polishes.
  • Non smearing for stamping manis.
  • Glows under black light.

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. I promise you won’t be disappointed!!

PPU is open from December 3rd at 11am EST until December 6th at 11:59pm EST. Set your alarms so you don’t miss out.

Hygge Life: $13 – NO CAP

Top Coat: $7.50 – NO CAP
