Glisten & Glow ~ Shades Of Shenandoah Collection

*These polishes were provided for review

Hello! I hope you are all doing much better than I. It’s been a rough 2 weeks I can’t even begin to tell you! Let’s bring all the happy by checking out this new collection from Jill at Glisten & Glow! This 4 piece collection is called Shades Of Shenandoah. Four totally unique shades that you’ll have to have. Shall we?

Visions In The Valley is a clear based polish jam packed with both multi chrome and iridescent flakes that shift from green/blue/gold/purple/red/pink. Yowza is this one stunning. You can use this as a topper but it is pretty flakie dense so expect a real good coating. I also highly suggest grabbing some Glitter Grabber when you order because this polish is so flakie filled. Formula is super smooth. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

Stalagmites & Stalactites At Skyline is a medium lilac polish loaded with color shifting shimmer that shifts from copper/gold/green/blue. I love shimmer polish so much. Especially when it’s this shifty. Every move of your hand shows different colors. The formula on this one was just impeccable. 3 thin coats for my swatches.

Limestones At Luray is a rich caramel jelly polish with added holo micro flakes and loaded with color shifting multi chrome flakes that shift from purple/red/orange/yellow/green. This is the most unique polish I have ever seen. EVER! I honestly wasn’t sure about it when I first saw it. But once I put it on I fell in love. The flakes and the depth and just everything about this polish is fantastic. You will need this one. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

Sunsets On Skyline Drive is a medium sky blue holo crelly loaded with rainbow iridescent flakes. This one is my favorite! Wait til you see it matte!! The flakies make this polish. The base color is also just gorgeous. This one is flakie packed so again, don’t forget to grab some Glitter Grabber. This polish could probably be fine with 2 coats but of course I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

How do feel about these shades? I love them so much! They are a one batch and done type situation so these will not be restocked when they sell out. I suggest you grab them early. Each polish is $11.50 or you can buy the quad for $42. If you buy only one I suggest Limestones At Luray. You’ll never see another polish like it. These polishes are available now so don’t wait! I hope you enjoyed these polishes as much as I did. I hope you have a fantastic week coming up! Thanks for stopping by ❤

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 ❤

Dr.’s REMEDY ~ Breast Cancer Awareness 2021

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all! Today I have for you some pink before the month is over! I am behind because these were not delivered very quickly. The mail is just crazy and it’s about to get worse so strap in! Holidays are coming up quick. Anywho, for now we are bringing the pink! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Dr.’s REMEDY has put together a few shades to support the cause! Let’s check them out!

PROMISING Pink is a very soft pink crelly polish. I want to love this one but I just can’t. The formula was not the best and it was very unforgiving to my nail ridges. You can see clearly in pics that it did not cover the nail fully. I have never had this happen before. Especially after 3 coats of polish! This polish would be ok at 1 coat for a sheer wash of color. I used 3 coats for my swatches.

POSITIVE Pink is a bubblegum pink creme polish. This one was nice to work with. Nice creamy formula that applies beautifully. You could use 2 coats but I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

PLAYFUL Pink is a bright pink creme polish with added silver shimmer. This one was my favorite. Great coverage and a wonderful formula. This is a definite 2 coater. I used 3 coats though because I’m just weird like that.

Uniquely formulated with organic ingredients, nourishing
vitamins— and without toxic additives commonly found in
traditional polish—our podiatrist-formulated lacquers won’t
just make your nails look great, they’ll make you feel great
about wearing them. That’s because for the month of
October, Dr.’s REMEDY® is donating 10% of the proceeds
from the sale of each bottle of PROMISING Pink to Living
Beyond Breast Cancer.

This October, treat your nails to the ultimate feel good
manicure, compliments of Dr.’s REMEDY®. In honor of
Breast Cancer Awareness month, Dr.’s REMEDY® is proud to
partner with Living Beyond Breast Cancer, an organization
dedicated to expanding the resources and improving the
lives of women living with breast cancer. This month
Dr.’s REMEDY® is highlighting its Pretty in Pink Collection:
Featuring top selling Promising Pink. Complete with a
wellness-inspired name— a Dr.’s REMEDY® signature—
PROMISING was hand picked to promote positivity, serenity
and encouragement, empowering those facing the fight against
Breast Cancer to feel good about themselves and their nails.

Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC) is a nonprofit
organization whose vision is a world where no one
impacted by breast cancer feels uninformed or alone.
To strive toward reaching that vision, LBBC’s mission
is to connect people with trusted breast cancer
information and a community of support. LBBC
addresses the current needs of people affected by
breast cancer, whether they are newly diagnosed,
in treatment, recovery or living with a history of or
managing a metastatic form of the disease. Resources
are developed in collaboration with the nation’s
leading oncologists, health professionals and ally
organizations and are delivered by people who
understand the physical and emotional complexities
of breast cancer. LBBC offers its programs and
services in a variety of printed and digital formats.
For more information, visit them at LBBC.org.

I know that’s a lot to read but it’s worth it! Each polish will be $17.25. Or you can get the Pretty In PINK collection for $62 which includes the 3 pinks above, a polish remover, and a bag for your mani tools. Either way treat yourself!

Glisten & Glow ~ Halloween Quad 2021

*These polishes were provided for review

It’s finally spooky season! How excited are you??? I’m ecstatic!! Now, straight through the holidays, is my favorite time of the year. Of course Jill will have you covered! Today I am bringing you Glisten & Glow’s Halloween Quad! 4 amazing polishes that fit for the season and beyond! Let’s have a look!

Ahead Of The Carve is a vibrant orange polish with color shifting shimmer that goes from red to green to gold. This one is amazing! The color payoff is fantastic. This color just jumps off your nails. Vibrant is a great description of this color. Formula was nice and smooth. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

Mummy Of The Year is a white based crelly polish with added glitters in brown, copper, and orange. Fall in a bottle. I love the mix of glitter colors in here. Very fitting for the fall season. Formula was great even with all the glitters. I do recommend Glitter Grabber for this polish if you want that glass like finish. I used 2 coats for my swatches.

Scare Way To Heaven is a deep purple holo polish with color shifting shimmers from blue/aqua/purple and holo micro flakes. Yup! Love this one. The blue/aqua shift is just so freaking pretty. And can we just talk about the name? Jill is so clever! I used 2 smooth coats for my swatches.

Witch Way To The Candy is a black holo polish with added micro flakes. Y’ALL!! This is a 1 coat polish. Perfect formula and super pigmented. Seriously, a must have for any nail polish enthusiast! I’m wearing this right now and I just can’t get enough! It’s perfect for all year round as well. It is a 1 coat polish but I of course used 2 just because for my swatches.

That’s the Halloween Quad! What do you think? Aren’t they just perfect for the season? These polishes will be available on October 8th at 7pm EST. Each polish will be $10 or you can just buy the quad for $35! BUY ALL THE HALLOWEEN POLISH!!! I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week! Thanks for stopping by ❤

Swamp Gloss ~ MaryJane & Manicures Group Custom

*I purchased this duo

Guys! I don’t know if you know but I am a huge smoker! Marijuana of course. I have my medical license before anyone freaks out! So, I follow this awesome group on Facebook called MaryJane & Manicures. For the month of July there was a custom duo for sale from Swamp Gloss polish. Katie came correct with this set. Let’s have a look.

Sssinister Sssalad is a cerulean jelly polish with a strong shimmer that shifts between green, gold, red, pink and a touch of micro holo glitters. This is just what I see, not a description given by the maker so forgive me if I’m off. It’s soooo pretty. This would make a great base for a space/galaxy mani! There is a very slight (VERY SLIGHT) visible nail line for me. Mostly because my free edge is really white. You should be fine with shorter nails or with not so white free edges. I used 3 perfectly smooth coats for my swatches.

There is also this amazing lip balm called Best Buds. It’s root beer and vanilla ice cream scented! If you like root beer floats this is just perfect for you! Best Buds ingredients are: coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, beeswax, tocopherol (vitamin E), argan oil, rosehip seed oil, EO & FO, sweetner. I have been using it every day since I got it and I can say it’s wonderful. My lips are so soft!

Sadly, I’m pretty sure this is no longer available. I do apologize for that but maybe you could find it in a destash eventually. It really is worth keeping an eye out for. Either way I will link Swamp Gloss below! Thanks so much for stopping by ❤

Taylor Made Polish ~ Summer Neutrals 2021

So here I am, late as usual. When I said I wanted to blog the next day I totally forgot it was Father’s Day weekend. We had dinner plans and all kinds of other stuff going on. I am so absent minded sometimes. I apologize for that! Anyways, today I have for you the Summer Neutrals from Taylor Made Polish. Let’s jump right in.

Love Letter is a soft pink crelly polish. This one is so cute and girly. This formula was a little picky so polish carefully. Don’t use too many strokes. The final result is a beautiful shade of baby pink. I used 3 coats for my swatches.

Smoke Show is a sheer grey shimmer polish with a touch of added silver sparkle. This one is my favorite. Again, the formula was a tad patchy. I actually think this polish would make/be better as a topper! She is definitely breathtaking though. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

“You’re a Natural!” is a light nude creme polish. I really wanted to love this one but I just couldn’t. This formula was not too fun at all. It was very patchy and not self leveling in the slightest. Definitely not my favorite. I used 3 coats for my swatches.

Overall, this was not what I was expecting from Taylor Made Polish! I guess it could just be me but I didn’t have the best time with these 3 polishes. I definitely would still recommend Smoke Show! Like I said it will make a great topper. Each of these polishes will be $10 per bottle, $27 for the neutrals trio, or $54 for all 6 polishes brights and neutrals! Let me know what you think in the comments! I hope you all have a great rest of your week! Thanks for stopping by ❤

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.

Moonflower Polish ~ My Old San Juan

*These polishes were provided for review

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 ❤

Saki Cosmetics & 1422 Designs ~ Summer Collab

*These polishes were provided for review

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 25 CAD (20 USD). Will you be grabbing this duo? Let me know in the comment section below. Have a great day y’all ❤

Bailey Sarian x Loud Lacquer ~ Aqua Tofana Collection

*These polishes were purchased by me

Hey everyone! How’s it going? I’m about to be packing so my blog will slow down for a bit. I can’t wait to move. So exciting to go where we get to live! Anyways, who here hasn’t heard of Bailey Sarian? If you like true crime chances are you have heard of her. If you like true crime and makeup you have definitely heard of her. I’m slightly (fully) obsessed. I have to admit that it was 98% of the reason I bought the Aqua Tofana Collection! The quality of the polish just made me that much happier. Let’s see what Bailey and Loud Lacquer brought us.

Saint is a dense glitter topper with hex glitters in different sizes. I didn’t mention the color because I’m just not too sure. It’s like a rose gold with a hint of pumpkin. It sure is pretty either way. The color is what makes this polish so unique. The formula for this glitter is fantastic. I probably should have painted 1 coat then sponged it on for coverage but I used 3 coats for my swatch instead. Price $14.50

Belladonna is a medium mint creme that leans a little aqua. This shade is perfection. The formula is out of this world. These were a tad expensive but the quality is well worth the cost. Its so smooth and silky. Totally self leveling. I could go on and on about this polish so let’s just stop here by saying it’s perfect. I used 1 coat for my swatches. Price $12.50

Giulia is a deep violet shimmer polish. Again, an amazing polish overall. Some shimmer polishes will leave streaks. This one did not. Giulia is a tiny bit thin so polish carefully as to not flood the cuticles. I didn’t have too much of an issue. I used 2 coats for my swatches. Price $13.50

Antidote is an antiqued gold polish. I really liked this one. It’s not quite a metallic but it’s close. This is one of those polishes that will look good on anyone of any skin tone! Formula was fabulous but this one will leave brush streaks so polish thoughtfully. I used 2 coats for my swatches. Price $13.50

I am super happy with this purchase. And in true to me fashion, Belladonna is my favorite. Right now, at the time of publish, the Aqua Tofana Collection is sold out but it will be back in time for the holidays! Price for the whole set $55. That price includes shipping and tax and all that. I will update the actual box cost as soon as it’s listed again. Don’t forget this box comes with a look book and 3 awesome stickers! I hope you enjoyed this post. I hope you make good choices! Have a fabulous day y’all.
