Hey y’all! How are things going for you? I am dealing with toddler tantrums… Not a fan. He is starting to throw things and like where does he get this from?! My husband and I don’t throw things. Just crazy times over here! Today I bring you a slice of calm in all the crazy! Let’s check it out.
Polish Of The Month July 2021 is a creamy light purple semi matte holo polish with color shifting multichrome flakes, pastel flakes, and purple to pink to green shimmer. As I said, this is a calming post. The vibe of this polish is just so chill and beautiful. Serene like. The formula is super smooth. I swiped on 2 perfect coat for my swatches.
This POTM and June’s POTM will both be available tonight so be ready. POTM July 2021 will be $10 per bottle and will release tonight, June 10th at 7pm EST! Make sure you also grab all of the mani essentials you need in Jill’s shop! Use code Thankyou10 for 10% off of your order! Have a great weekend y’all ❤
Hello! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty chill. Not much going on at the moment except for this fantastic polish! Let’s jump right in because I’m super excited to show you this beauty 🙂
Polish Of The Month June 2021 is a multichrome polish that shifts from deep eggplant purple (almost black)/berry/garnet/red/orange/gold/green with added scattered holo. This is the super popular pigment that all makers are using!! I am so glad Jill has one now. I absolutely love the scattered holo in there. It gives it that little something extra. I own another brand with this pigment and I can tell you this formula is way better than the big name expensive stuff! This polish was perfect in just 2 thin coats. Not streaky at all. I used 2 coats for my swatches.
If you weren’t sure already, you need this! It’s so elegant and fun at the same time! Even better? This polish will only be $10 per bottle!! POTM June 2021 will be available on June 11th at 7pm EST. You definitely just need to be there. It’s worth more than every penny. I hope you all have a fantastic day! Thanks for stopping by ❤
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 & GlowCuticle Remover Pen contains: distilled water, potassium hydroxide, coconut oil and fragrance. Glisten & GlowCuticle 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! The cuticle oil & remover will be $12 per set and there is also no cap! Hug your pets extra close today for me! I hope you all have a great week! Thanks for stopping by ❤
Hey y’all! Todays post has a lot going on so lets dive right in. I have a few disclaimers first and foremost. 1) All of these polishes could be 2 coats. I used 3 for some because I have crazy ridges in my nails that show through 2 coats of polish. I do have G&GRidge Filling Base Coat but right now I am trying out a new peel off base coat for swatching purposes. 2) In my swatch videos and in some of my pics you will see some bubbling. THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE POLISH!! My central air was broken for days and it was over 80 degrees in my house for like a week straight. Swatching had to be done by a certain time so I did the best I could. Again, it’s not the polish at all. I just have some horrible luck sometimes lol. Now that that is out of the way, lets get to the polish shall we?
Suns Out, Buns Out is a neon yellow creme polish. Electric lemon to the max! Love this shade of yellow so much! Formula was great for a neon yellow. They even dry a tad shiny instead of fully matte. It’s impressive. I used 3 coats for my swatches.
Keep Palm and Carry On is a neon green creme polish. GUYS!!! This green is everything! I freaking love this shade. I really just can’t say enough about it. Neons are my absolute favorite and this whole collection just really hits the bright spot for me lol. Formula is fantastic. I used 3 coats for my swatches.
New Shell Phone, Who Dis? is a neon bright pink creme polish. This is the pink of 8 year old me’s dreams! That neon pink I could never seem to get bright enough for my taste. This is it!! I love so much that this takes me back to being a kid. The memories lol! I used 3 coats for my swatches.
Yeah, Buoy is a neon coral creme polish. This looks like coral and orange had a baby. Super awesome color. Totally unique to my collection. Formula on this one was the best yet! Super smooth! Neon what?? This collection is so not your usual neons! I used 2 coats for my swatches.
Tropic Like It’s HOT! is a neon darker pink creme polish with purple undertones. Yup, this one had me dead. Could have been a 1 coater. Such a perfect neon! Super smooth. The formula on this one was the best out of the set. Just sooo good! I used 2 coats for my swatches.
I didn’t do my usual art with these because of the temp in my place. Water marbling was just out of the question. They DO water marble and they DO stamp. I’m sorry I couldn’t show you that. I did however, manage to get a few looks in using the entire collection for each mani!
The Beach, Please Summer Neons Collection is a limited edition set! Only one batch of these have been made then that’s it! They will be released on May 28th at 7pm EST. Each bottle will be $11.50. You can purchase the whole collection for $55. Let me know which one is your favorite and/or what you’ll be grabbing tomorrow!! Please refer to my macros for most color accuracy! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by ❤
Hello! How are we all doing on this fine Monday? I kid I kid. Mondays are always the worst. Unless you have a husband who’s days off are Sunday Monday like mine! Since I’m a stay at home mom my weekends are my husbands weekends! Anywho, Glisten & Glow is bringing us a Mental Health Awareness Collection. This is so close to my heart. I suffer from bipolar, PTSD, anxiety, depression, OCD, excoriation disorder, and agoraphobia. This collection brings to light 4 out of 7 of my “conditions”. This makes me extremely happy because these things are usually so hush hush. I am very open about what I deal with to help erase the social stigmas. Having these polishes will make for great conversation starters about mental health. Not to mention the donation of $1 for each bottle sold! This collection really has it all. Let’s have a look!
Suicide Awareness is a yellow jelly polish with blue to purple chrome flakes and rainbow color shifting iridescent flakes. There was a sneak peek at this one about a month ago and everyone went nuts over it. So here it is! The coveted yellow jelly!! The formula on this one was perfect. I do suggest Glitter Grabber since this is so flakie packed. It’s so flakie packed that you can’t tell it’s a jelly! It will cover in 2 coats for shorter nails. My free edge is really white so I used 3 coats for full opacity.
Break The Stigma is a red jelly polish with orange/red/green and green/purple color shifting iridescent flakes. To me, this is more of a fuchsia base. Either way it’s so so pretty. The flakies just make this polish ❤ Jill really nails the jelly formula too! Nice and smooth strokes for the win! I used 3 thin coats for my swatches. There is still a very slight visible nail line. Again, I highly suggest Glitter Grabber for such a flakie packed polish.
Bipolar & Depression is a lime jelly polish with green/gold color shifting shimmer with green to purple color shifting iridescent flakes and a touch of holo. This one can also be worn as a topper and is a bit thinner formula for exactly that reason. This polish is so unique. In my 1600 bottle collection I have nothing like this at all. As a topper it’s so gorgeous. I used 3 coats alone and 1 coat over black for my swatches.
PTSD & Anxiety is a teal based polish with added blue to purple color shifting shimmers. This is another polish that can be worn as a topper. it was made to be a thinner formula for exactly that reason! This one is awesome. It is on the sheer side so even at 3 coats I had a slight visible nail line. the formula was fantastic. I used 3 coats alone and 1 coat over black for my swatches. Such a shifty polish!
Before we get into the details, I have some facts for you!
Nearly 1 in 5 American adults will have a diagnosable mental health condition in any given year.
46% of Americans will meet the criteria for a diagnosable mental health condition sometime in their life, and half of those people will develop conditions by the age of 14.
Number of US adults with mental illness: 44 million
Percent of US adults with mental illness: 18%
We are NOT alone and we should NOT be ashamed of something we cannot control! I recommend the Mental Health Awareness Collection to everyone and if for no other reason than the donation aspect! $1 per bottle gets donated to Mental Health America ❤ That’s a huge donation! Each polish will be $10 and the whole set will be $38. If you buy the set $4 will be donated. These release on May 28th at 7pm EST. Will you be picking these up? Let me know in the comments what you think and what you’re getting. Have a great week y’all ❤
Hello! I hope you are ready for PPU. Shop opens in just about 13 hours til we are there. Hopefully you already have this piece on your wish list. If not, I hope I can change your mind!
This month for guilty pleasures, Brittany of R&P Jewelry brings you her guilty pleasure which is ice cream (with the magic shell)! Her take on ice cream is the beaded sterling silver midi ring. The beaded part represents the scoops of ice cream!
Made from beaded sterling silver wire, this fun midi ring will be offered in a size 3. Because of its handmade nature, each ring may look a little bit different
This ring will be $10 and have a cap of 150.
I hope you are on your way to add this to your wish list. Hopefully I have managed to sway your decision to buying this ring. It’s cute, stylish, and would make such a great gift as well. I hope you all have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by ❤
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 ❤
