Glisten & Glow ~ Cornucopia of Thanks Collection

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all! It’s finally cooled down where I am and I couldn’t be happier! My favorite season is winter but fall is a very close second. I hope everyone is feeling well with all that’s going on in the world. Just remember there is always someone to talk to even if it be help lines. I’ll link some numbers below. For now let’s talk polish! I have the Cornucopia of Thanks Collection, which is a quartet of polishes that says thanks in different languages. Let’s have a look.

Bedankt (Dutch) is a light periwinkle creme polish. Definitely not your average fall color but it fits with this collection beautifully. My pictures lean a little blue for this one. It has the slightest purple hint that my camera just wouldn’t pick up. As always I’ll let you know what’s color accurate. Bedankt was a dream to work with. 2 perfect coats for my swatches. Price $10

Most color accurate

Danke (German) is a medium boysenberry purple creme polish. I really want to say that this one is my favorite but every time I get to the green it wins lol. This is a super close second though. Just look at the deep lusciousness. This looks fabulous on the nails. I feel like this would fit all skin tones. An all around perfect polish. 2 coats for my swatches. Price $10

Gracias (Spanish) is a medium deep green creme polish with a touch of teal. Y’all. This polish looks as if an emerald and some jade were melted together. The color is just stunning. Probably my favorite new green. I could not wait to get this on and it did not disappoint! If you get only 1 polish here let it be this one for real! Jill’s creme polishes are always fantastic and Gracias was no different. 2 coats for my swatches. Price $10.

Spasibo (Russian) is a light pumpkin creme polish. I know it’s corny but I had to put pumpkins on this color lol. It’s the perfect pumpkin shade without being too bold. This one is super squishy. More like a crelly than a creme. An absolute dream to work with. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches. Price $10

What do you think? Do you love them? The Cornucopia of Thanks Collection is the perfect fall set. Please, please, please come back and let me know what you picked up and what you think about Gracias lol. Must haves for sure. The Cornucopia of Thanks Collection will be available on October 9th at 7pm EST. Don’t miss them! Thanks so much for stopping by 🙂 Links below!

Glisten & Glow ~ Oct. 2020 PPU

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey guys! Glisten & Glow is back for October’s Polish Pickup. If you haven’t seen the pics yet hold your hats. She’s a doozy! Polish Pickup‘s theme for October is Cartoon/Animation. Truly Outrageous was inspired by Jill’s fanatic love for Jem And The Holograms. Let’s have a looksie 🙂

Truly Outrageous is exactly that. Truly outrageous!! This polish is a burple jelly polish with various shades, shapes, and sizes of pink glitters. Pretty much the epitome of burple color. My pics do lean a little blue so I’ll make sure you know what pic is most color accurate. Truly Outrageous is so fun! The sparkle is fantastic and the depth is just awesome. And it’s SO squishy! I’m leaving for vacation tomorrow and I do believe this will be on my toes. I used 3 thin coats for my swatch plus glitter grabber and top coat. Price $12.50 Cap: Under 395 for both US & UK.

Most Color Accurate!

Before I show you my fun nail art, I want to tell you about Jill’s top coat. Glisten & Glow Top Coat is an award winning, fast drying, glossy top coat. After using this top coat your nails will be dry in 2-4 minutes or less and they will be durable and long lasting with days to weeks of no tip wear or chipping! It has a crystal clear, shiny/glossy, “wet/gel” like appearance. It seals and evens glitters and flakie polishes. It won’t smear your nail art and it glows under black light! Dang that’s a lot lol. I say this all the time but I have been buying this top coat since 2013 and I haven’t bought another brand since! I have reviewed but never purchased anything but this. It has my heart and my hands ❤ Price $7.50 Cap: US-230 UK-5

Polish Pickup will only be open from October 2 at 11am EST until October 5 at 11:59pm EST. Make sure these go on your wish list!! Have a great day! Links below 🙂

Glisten & Glow ~ Fall 2020

Hello! How are we all doing? I am fabulous! It’s 71 degrees out and all my windows are open. I love this time of year. The fresh air is just so perfect and refreshing. A perfect fall type day to bring you Glisten & Glows Fall 2020 trio! 3 gorgeous glitter crellies that are a little out of the norm color wise. On to the pics!

The Great Grape Stomp is a white based crelly with various shapes and sizes of purple, lavender, garnet, grey, and gun metal glitters. An absolute must have for any purple lover. The polish is nice and creamy. Glitter packed but not chunky. No need to fish for glitters as this has tons! The glitter colors all compliment each other so nicely. An all around pleasure to use. 2 coats for my swatches. Price $10.

Jack O’Lantern Blaze is the only color you might expect to see in a fall collection. It’s a white based crelly polish with various shapes and sizes of chocolate, yellow, and orange glitters. This screams falloween. Again, a super smooth polish filled to the brim with glitter. I think of s’mores and pumpkin pie when I wear this. 2 coats for full coverage. Price $10

Harvest Moon Skies is a white based crelly loaded with various shapes and sizes of navy, turquoise, grey, gun metal, and aqua glitters. This one is my favorite. The colors together are unique but so very pretty. I especially love the grey and gun metal glitter. Not a color I would expect at all but it totally works. As with the others, this is super smooth but glitter packed! 2 coats for my swatch. Price $10

Did you notice that all of my manis looked smooth? That’s because I used Glitter Grabber! After you put on your polish, allow it to dry fully then use a coat of Glitter Grabber before you top coat! Totally smooth! It is a miracle product that has many uses. Make sure you follow Glisten & Glow‘s FB page to see what people are saying. If you use glitter you absolutely need Glitter Grabber! Anywho, the Fall 2020 collection will be available for purchase on September 18th at 7pm EST. Set any alarms you have. You will not regret this purchase ever. I will have the links below! Have a great day y’all 🙂

Stella Chroma ~ Desert Scapes Collection

*These polishes were provided for review
*Picture Heavy
Hey y’all! How are we doing during these trying times? Pam from Stella Chroma thought it would be a good idea to continue with the colors to brighten spirits!! I more than love that because it’s just so needed at this time. Anywho, I want to explain something before I get into the polishes. For all of my pics my lighting is exactly the same. I use an Ottlite 13W HD Slimline task lamp and a random desk lamp with an Ottlite bulb. My lights stay in the same place on my desk as well as my tripod. My lighting is all over the place with this collection. I’m leaving it as is because 1) they are color accurate (mostly), and 2) it shows the polishes at different angles, not just their best. I feel like people get cheated sometimes with those impossibly perfect swatch pics. Here you will see how they look in real life. I hope that no one minds! On to the polishes. 
Pueblo – “Distinct structures made of stone, wood, and adobe mud look out of place anywhere but the desert. They blend in or stand out depending on the position of the sun. As it rises, it lends a bleached pinky tone to the mud walls and that’s the shade we modeled this color after. The gold/pink shimmer adds an extra touch.” This one is so soft and feminine.The perfect sunset pink. Light pinks usually have an iffy formula but this was nice and smooth in 3 thin coats.

Most color accurate!

Cactus Bloom – “A buttery golden yellow with a gold/pink shimmer. Smooth and opaque at two coats. Inspired by the deep yellow blooms that contrast the deep green of a cactus.” This seems to have many matches and they are all food lol. My husband said butterscotch, I said mac n’ cheese and butternut squash. Seriously an awesome color. Totally unique with a gorgeous shimmer. The formula for this one is impeccable. I used 3 thin coats but 2 thicker coats would be fine.

Most color accurate!

Desert Turquoise – “I can’t think of the desert without thinking of bright turquoise stones. Either polished in jewelry or rough to the touch,  the striking color is unmistakable. Our color is highlighted with a blue/green shimmer.” This is one of my favorites of the collection. The shimmer pops like crazy. It even shifts to blue at extreme angles. Such a fun stand out polish. I used 2 perfect coats.

Most color accurate!

Prickly Pear – “The fruit of a prickly pear cactus is normally found in a range of shades from bright pink to deep purple. It has been used as food and medicine in many desert climates for many years. This shade is a deep pink-ish purple with scattered holographic glitter.” To me, this is actually very grapey. I have never even seen a prickly pear though so that’s probably why. I have always said that pink is my favorite color but lately purple has taken over. I absolutely love this one. Especially with the glitter. 3 thin coats of buttery perfection for my pics.

Big Sky – “A vivid blue crème shade inspired by the endless summer sky. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a more beautiful blue than that of the sky above Chinle, Arizona. I tried to do it justice here.” This one is my favorite because it really is super vivid. A perfect royal blue crème with an equally perfect formula. 2 coats for this beauty.

Most color accurate!

I never in a million years would have picked these colors for a collection but they totally work. They actually compliment each other very well. I love this entire collection so much more than I thought I could. I have already worn Prickly Pear 2 times! The Desert Scapes Collection will be available on May 29th at noon EST. The full collection will be available at a discounted price of $54 for two weeks after release. Then all colors will only be available individually at $12 each. Save the money and get the whole collection. You will love each and every one of them. I hope you all have a great week! Thanks for reading! Links below 😊

*Provided for review
Hey! Coming at you tonight with a late post. Facebook crashing was half of the problem. The other half? Sickness has hit our house. I have been napping a lot because this cold is just wearing me out. This post will definitely help me out though because it all so pretty and I’ll be distrascted!! First, let me tell you how excited I was to swatch this box!!! I have swatched all of these brands before and I love them all. Such great quality brought to you in 1 place!! This is also Nadia’s (Moonflower Polish) first collab box! Lots to be excited about so let’s get to it. 
I Lilac You A Lot is a light purple base with blue, pink, and green micro flakies and crystal rainbow flakies. This polish was all around perfect! Smooth formula that levels beautifully. The flakies had me. I could not stop flinging my hands around to see the flakies colors. Absolutely exquisite! I used 2 coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches.

Pink Hare Don’t Care is a light pink linear holographic polish with gold flakies and scattered pink and silver holo glitters. This one made me think of roses. So obviously I ended up with rose art lol. Taylor’s polish is always fabulous. Formula is as smooth as butter. Love me some pink holo polish! 2 coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches.

Peri-Winkle Of My Eye is a periwinkle crème stamping polish with a pink shimmer. I am head over heels for this color! We had a playroom when we were growing up and I BEGGED my mother to paint it periwinkle. She did 😁 If you look up close it seems speckled. I assure you it’s totally smooth but its such an awesome look! You’ll see what I mean in the macros. This polish was on the thicker side. Totally normal for a stamping polish so not to worry. Totally could have been a 1 coater but… we all know how this goes. I used 2 coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches. I also show it stamped over black and white. Love it stamped over white!

Coral-icious Peeps is a coral crème polish with tons of different blue and aqua shimmers. I saved this for last because it has my favorite art! Again, this polish falls in line with the previous polishes from Sassy Cats. Phenomenal. I freaking love everything about this polish. Goes on smooth and has the most gorgeous blue pop to it. I used 2 coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches.
