*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 ❤

Orly ~ Wild Natured Collection

*I bought this

Hello! How are we all doing? Today I have for you the Wild Natured collection from Orly. I know these have been all over the place already but just look at them!! These colors make up the best fall lineup I have seen in a while out of a mainstream brand. There are other great collections, don’t get me wrong. This one just definitely stands out. Let’s check them out, shall we?

Blue Tango is described as a medium blue creme polish. This is a stand out color for sure! It’s deeper in darker lighting but it is so bright in the sun! Such a beautiful blue. I used 2 smooth coats for my swatches.

In Full Plume is described as a dark teal creme. I always love a good teal color. This one is perfect and creamy and everything you want in a good polish. I used 2 amazing coats for my swatches.

Wild Willow is described as a mossy green creme polish. The more I use these ugly colors the more I love them. I loved how this looked on my skin tone. I think a color like this will compliment any skin tone!! Again, I used 2 easy peasy coats for my swatches.

Lion’s Ear is described as a warm orange creme polish. To me, this polish is definitely more of a crelly. I still had a slight visible nail line at 2 coats. 3 coats would most likely make this shade opaque. Formula was nice and easy to work with. 2 coats for my swatches.

Bird Of Paradise is described as an orange creme polish. What?!?! 2 oranges? I was kinda shocked but it works! And they are both very different oranges thankfully. This one is definitely a creme base. I used 2 buttery coats for my swatches.

String Of Hearts is described as a deep fuchsia creme polish. I just adore this color. This is a flattering color for me or anybody really. This polish was super smooth and nicely pigmented. I used 2 coats for my swatches.

Don’t you just love them? They are available now commercially but I will leave you the pricing info from their direct site. Each shade is $9.50. You can get the full set for $57. If gel polish is your thing they are also available that way for $15.90 per shade or $95.40 for the full 6 piece set. My favorite thing about Orly is that their bottle are larger than the average polish bottle. I feel like I get such a great value lol. Your average full sized polish is .5 oz. Orly is .6 oz. And let’s not forget the amazing quality we all know and love from Orly. I have never had a bad polish from Orly. Since these are so popular right now, I would love to do some twin nails so let me know in the comments if that’s something you want to do. I hope you all have a great rest of your week. Thanks so much for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ October 2021 PPU/IPU

*These products were provided for review

Hello! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Hopefully this post will help you get through your Monday! I have for you Glisten & Glow‘s offering for this months PPU theme of Monsters & Mythical Creatures. Jill went a little out of the box with her Monster inspired polish. “A play on the “monster” theme! We spun revive the monster based on the famous Monster energy drink series of Rehab Monster – Raspberry Tea! It’s the only monster I want to revive each day!” Let’s check it out.

Revive Your Monster is a fuchsia jelly/crelly polish with various shapes and sizes of black, gun metal, light grey, and silver holo glitters. This one is packed with glitter so I highly recommend grabbing Glitter Grabber as well. Don’t worry though. It’s not chunky or hard to work with. It’s actually really nice to apply. I used 3 easy peasy coats along with Glitter Grabber to smooth it out and a glossy top coat.

My swatches came out a little bleached for some reason. This polish is actually brighter than what it shows here. I apologize for that greatly!

Also, for IPU Jill is bringing us a cuticle remover pen and an oil pen duo. The scents compliment each other perfectly too! The cuticle remover pen is scented in fresh picked apples (fresh, juicy apples picked right from the orchard). The cuticle oil is scented in caramel apple (tart, crispness of apples layered with the rich, creaminess of caramel). Glisten & Glow cuticle oil pen is a custom blend of jojoba oil, vitamin e oil, grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil, sunflower oil, argon oil, castor oil, acai berry extract, tea tree oil and fragrance oil. Glisten & Glow cuticle remover pen contains: distilled water, potassium hydroxide, coconut oil, and fragrance. 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.

Cuticle Remover Pen Directions: Apply generously to the cuticle area and let sit for 60 seconds. Next, gently push back your cuticles with your favorite tool. Finally, wash hands and cuticles thoroughly with soap and water.

I hope you love it all. I know I do 🙂 The pen scents just scream fall! And the polish is just exquisite! Super pretty. These things will all be available from October 1st at 11am EST until October 4th at 11:59pm EST. Set your alarms!

Revive Your Monster: $12.50 per bottle NO CAP

Cuticle Pens Duo: $12 per set NO CAP

I hope you all have a great week ahead! Thanks so much for stopping by ❤

Dr.’s Remedy ~ The Comeback Collection

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all. Today I’m bringing you some new stuff from Dr.’s Remedy! “Believe it or not, fall is fast approaching. And we are so here for it. If ever there was a time to embrace the optimism of a fresh new season it’s now. As social calendars start to repopulate and we gently embrace a hopeful and more energized way of life, Dr.’s Remedy Enriched Nail Care is right on cue-with two empowering new shades that encourage us to live in the moment. Introducing LYRICAL Lilac and SERENITY Sage. Stylish and neutral at the same time, each one of these comforting, cream-based colors perfectly capture the-cautiously-upbeat vibe of the moment.” Let’s check them out!!

LYRICAL Lilac is a flirty, full coverage pale purple creme which has light mauve undertones that flatter all skin tones, making it the perfect fall pastel. They are not kidding when they say full coverage. This could easily be a 1 coat polish. The formula is fantastic! I of course used 2 coats for my swatches. For my stamping I used the shade BRAVE Berry.

SERENITY Sage is an earthy grey-green creme polish that walks the line between edgy and neutral – a guaranteed win for a long awaited night out. I love this one so much. Green has been my it color for a while now and this did not disappoint at all. Again, this could be a 1 coat polish. Formula is nice and buttery and just all out flawless. I used 2 coats for my swatches. For my stamping I used shade MAGNETIC Midnight.

I also threw together a quick look using both shades and again, stamped with MAGNETIC Midnight.

Now that you have seen the awesomeness, let me tell you a little about Dr.’s Remedy. “The brainchild of two New York-based board certified podiatrists, Dr. Adam Cirlincione and Dr. William Spielfogel, Dr.’s REMEDY was designed with nail health in mind. Formulated with organic, naturally healing ingredients such as vitamins, kale, cactus and ginseng extracts, along with wheat protein, tea tree oil, lavender, biotin and garlic bulb extract, Dr.’s REMEDY helps heal, protect and ward off infection.

Please visit their site to see all the shades and treatments they offer. Links will be below! Have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ Fall Holos 2021

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all!! It’s almost fall. I can’t wait for the nice weather fall brings. I live in the north east and I still can barely stand the heat! I can’t imagine what it’s like in the lower states. I would fully melt lol!! How about you? What’s your favorite weather? Fall is bringing us some gorgeous polish. Let’s check out Glisten & Glow’s line up for fall!

For The Love Of Gourd is a harvest yellow holo polish with added holo micro flakes. I’m not the hugest fan of yellow polish. The formula is usually pretty picky. BUT this one is perfect! Super smooth and self leveling. No formula issues whatsoever! I used 3 buttery coats for my swatches.

Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice is a burnt orange holo polish with added holo micro flakes. This shade of orange is my favorite. I mean, I love me a good neon orange but this is much more wearable through all 4 seasons. Especially fall! It is the perfect pumpkin color. I would recommend 3 thin coats for this polish. I used 2 regular coats for my swatches but I should have added that 3rd coat!

Fall Aboard! is a tomato red holo polish with added holo micro flakes. Again, this shade is just perfect for fall. It’s a softer red polish. Not as harsh as a fire engine color. This will compliment any skin tone. I used 3 perfectly smooth coats for my swatches.

Leaf Me Alone is a medium green holo polish with added holo micro flakes. This one is my favorite. The perfect green for anything!! Just an all over exquisite polish. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

So, on a scale of 1 to 10 how much do you love them and why is it a 10!? Kidding!! But seriously, I can’t think of any other collection that screams fall like this one. These 4 colors are the epitome of fall. Each polish will be $11.50 or you can buy the set for $40! Who doesn’t love to save a little?? The Fall Holos will release tonight, September 17th 2021 at 7pm EST. Don’t miss out on these. Between this set and the upcoming holiday collection you will have a full holo rainbow! I’ll show this soon on my IG! This is a limited collection y’all so please don’t miss out! I hope you all have an amazing weekend! Thanks for stopping by ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ September 2021 PPU

*These polishes were provided for review

Hello! Tomorrow is PPU already! This month came so quick for me. And it is by far my favorite month of the year for PPU! The theme this month is Trick or Treat!!! Have you seen the offerings? AMAZING! Today I will be showing you what Jill from Glisten & Glow has to offer. Let’s take a look!

Cats & Bats is a very vampy and mysterious dark, dark purple almost black jelly polish filled with iridescent flakes that shift from dark blue to purple and iridescent flakes that shift from pink/red/orange/green/gold. Added holo flakes and holo sparkle round out this beauty. Y’ALL!! I love this one so much. The hues of pink purple and blue are so prevalent. Jill’s inspiration was Halloween’s superstitions of black cats and the spooky bats that fly at night while trick or treating. Nailed it! This will be the perfect base for any Halloween nail art! As per the norm, this formula is fantastic. Especially being so full of flakies. You will need the other offering for PPU and that is Glitter Grabber. It will smooth out any bumps you may get from the flakies. I used 3 easy coats for my swatches.

Glitter Grabber is an amazing product that gets applied after any flakie or glitter dense manicure is done and it is 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’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!

Here you can see my glitter packed polish alone, then with 1 coat of Glitter Grabber, then with 1 coat of Glitter Grabber and 1 coat of top coat. You can clearly see the smooth finish it will give you!

So there you go. 2 more things for you to grab this month from PPU! I promise you’ll love them both. Glitter Grabber actually has many uses and rave reviews so please do yourself the favor! Polish Pickup will be open September 3rd at 11am EST until September 6th at 11:59pm EST.

Cats & Bats: $12.50 per bottle NO Cap

Glitter Grabber: $8 per bottle NO Cap

    Glisten & Glow ~ Fall 2021 Cuticle Oil Pens

    *These oil pens were provided for review

    Hey my loves! Today is the day! It’s the release of the Autumn By The Sea collection and these fantastic smelling cuticle oils! I’m a bit behind so let’s jump right in.

    Doughnuts is like you just walked in to a doughnut shop in the crisp morning with the scent of fresh, warm doughnuts rolled in cinnamon sugar. Exactly the scent. I couldn’t have described it better. Pretty sure my older daughter is stealing this one!

    Blueberry Cobbler is blueberry bliss with warm notes of vanilla. I wish these were lickable. I could seriously just eat this one. So yummy.

    Morning Wake Up is a hot cup of hazelnut coffee with a dash of french vanilla creamer and a dash of sweet. Yup, this one is my favorite. Is anyone really surprised here? Coffee shop scent to the max!

    Fresh Picked Apples is fresh, juicy apples picked right from the orchard. Are we sure we can’t eat these??? There is nothing better than eating an apple in the orchard while picking apples and this takes me to those memories with my family<3 This one is special.

    Pumpkin Spice Latte the hart of fall, pumpkin with cinnamon. I feel like this is even more of a staple here in New England. I have not had my pumpkin fix yet this season but it’s coming!

    Banana Nut Bread – Mouth watering scent of freshly baked banana bread. A delicious combo of ripe bananas, roasted walnuts, warm vanilla, and a hint of cinnamon spice. This one is on the subtle side. My younger daughter has already taken this one. Banana bread is a favorite in this house so this one was awesome to have, if only for a day or two lol.

    Caramel Apple is the tart crispness of apple layered with the rich, creaminess of caramel. Fair vibes for sure! I am so ashamed to say that I haven’t been to a fair in about a decade. But I do remember the amazing fair food and this would be one of them.

    These oil pens will be available on August 27th at 7pm EST. Each pen will be $6.99 or you can buy all 7 for $43!Which ones will you be grabbing? Stay tuned! Jill has some fall holos coming soon as well!! Have a great weekend y’all. 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 ❤

    Glisten & Glow ~ August 2021 PPU-IPU

    *These polishes were provided for review

    Hey y’all! It’s almost that time again. Polish Pickup is coming up really fast this month. As usual Jill of Glisten & Glow is bringing you the goods! The theme this month is elements: earth, air, fire, water. Jill’s inspiration is one of the most beautiful concert venues in the US, Red Rocks Amphitheatre located in Morrison, Colorado. The sunsets, reflections off the amazing rocks and the starry skies is breathtaking. Let’s check it out!

    Nights at Red Rocks is a rich burgundy jelly polish loaded with red, orange, pink, gold, green iridescent flakes with micro holo flakes and a touch of holo magic. Y’all, I have worn this 4 times already. I freaking love love love it!! At extreme angles the flakes go blue and it’s just fantastic! I really just can’t say enough about this polish. What’s crazy is the fact that I never would have chosen this polish for myself. I’m just a little in shock about how much I like this lol! I think I could have used 3 coats but because it is so flakie dense I did only 2 coats for my swatches.

    Jill also has her top coat available for IPU! You can see it showcased in any of my pics. It’s all I use. This bottle was PR but I regularly buy myself top coat from Glisten & Glow. It’s just the best!

    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 glitters and flakie polishes
    • Non smearing for nail art
    • Glows under black light

    So, you need them right?! I so highly suggest you grab Nights at Red Rocks! Polish Pickup will be open August 6th at 11am EST until August 9th at 11:59pm EST

    • Nights at Red Rocks: $12.50. No Cap!
    • Top Coat: $7.50. NO Cap!

    Set your alarms and don’t miss it! I hope you all have a great rest of your week. Thanks so much for stopping by ❤

  • R&P Jewelry ~ August 2021 PPU

    Hello friends! How are we all this weekend? I broke a nail in my sleep and I’m dealing with tantrums. Please send help lol! My son is throwing his body on the floor when he doesn’t get his way and he hits his head pretty hard. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t worried. Im just hoping this phase will pass because man is it a tough phase! Anyways, it’s almost PPU time! The theme is the 4 elements – earth, wind, fire, and water. Brittany from R&P Jewelry knew immediately that she wanted to represent water. She scoured many stones until she found exactly what she was looking for. Let’s have a look.

    This stone is a simulated stone, shimmering in different colors, the way water does. At some angles it’s blue, some angles it’s amber, and some it is clear. It really sets the tone for how Brittany wanted to represent water in that it isn’t just one color but a multitude of colors. The band itself is 16 gauge 925 sterling silver. This ring will be offered in a size 5 and it will be capped at 150.

    Isn’t the ring just gorgeous?! I had so much fun taking pics of the stone because of all the beautiful shifts. As I said above, This ring will be sold in a size 5. It will be $15 with a cap of 150! You definitely don’t want to miss out on this one so be ready! PPU will be open August 6th at 11am EST until August 9th at 11:59pm EST. Hope to “see” you all there! Have a great rest of your weekend! Thanks for stopping by ❤
