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

  • 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 ❤

    Glisten & Glow ~ Beach, Please Summer Crellies 2021

    *These polishes were provided for review

    You didn’t think Jill was done with summer did you?! Nope! Here she is with 3 neon glitter crelly polishes! Polishes you will definitely need before summer is over. Let’s get right to it!

    Good Times & Tan Lines is a white based glitter crellies packed with neon glitters in pink, orange, yellow, light orange, green, purple and watermelon. This one is so fun and colorful. Tons of glitter in there so no fishing required! Formula was wonderful for a white crelly! I used 3 coats for my swatches.

    Pool Hair, Don’t Care is a bleached green neon glitter crelly packed with neon glitters in blue, orange, yellow, watermelon, and light orange. This one reminds me of pool balls. No idea why but it does! The colors together just make magic with this base color. Just an awesome shade. I used 2 coats for my swatches.

    Nama’ Stay At The Beach is a grape purple glitter crelly with neon glitters in yellow, green, and pink. I think this one is my favorite. Absolutely love the base color. I actually think this one dries a tad darker than it looks in the bottle. Formula was great! I used 2 coats for my swatches.

    The Beach, Please Summer Crellies will be available tomorrow, July 9th, at 7pm EST. Each polish will be $10 or you can buy the set for $28! You might as well just buy the set since you save some money lol!! Let me know what you’re grabbing in the comments! Links below for your shopping pleasure! Have a great weekend y’all! Thanks for stopping by ❤

    Glisten & Glow ~ July rewind PPU-IPU 2021

    *Truly Outrageous 2.0 & Glitter Grabber were provided for review. Pink In The City was purchased by me.

    Hey! How are we all doing? How was your weekend? Mine was uneventful. Boring to the max actually lol. Coming up this weekend is Polish Pickup! Are we ready? Are our wallets ready? Let’s check out what Jill from Glisten & Glow has to offer!

    Truly Outrageous 2.0 is a blurple crelly polish with different shapes and sizes of pink glitters and pink holo glitters. This 2.0 version is slightly more purple than the original polish. I actually like this base color a little more and I feel that the formula was even a little better. All around just a super smooth formula. I used 3 thin coats but you could probably get away with just 2 regular coats. “Truly Outrageous is inspired by the popular 80’s tv series – Jem and The Holograms! Funny Story, when Jill was in kindergarten she LOVED Jem, since Jem was her favorite she decided that she would rename herself Jem. So on all her papers and school work she wrote her name as Jem. The teachers called her Jem even. When her parents went to the first parent teacher conferences, the teacher said Oh your daughter Jem is just a delight. They said Our daughter name is Jill and everyone had a huge laugh!”

    Pink In The City is a neon pink jelly polish jam packed with color shifting iridescent flakies that shift between dark blue and purple. This one is so electric in person! You all need this one in your life! I used 3 thin coats for my swatches. Inspiration: Sarah Jessica Parker’s hot pink, ’80s-inspired Zac Posen gown worn at the New York City Ballet Fall Fashion Gala in 2019. She also paired the look with two mismatched heels from her own fashion line. This was a nod to her Sex in the City character Carrie Bradshaw, who adopted the quirky styling trick on the show.

    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! In order the pics are as follows: No glitter Grabber, 1 coat Glitter Grabber, 1 coat Glitter Grabber & 1 coat top coat.

    So, for July, there are polishes available at Polish Pickup and some are available in the makers shop. PPU shop will be open from July 2nd – July 5th.

    • Truly Outrageous 2.0 – $12.50 PPU shop – no cap
    • Glitter Grabber – $8.00PPU shop – no cap
    • Pink In The City – $12.50G&G shop – no cap

    I hope that makes it clear enough! Luckily there are no caps on anything here so you will all get what you want!! Let me know below what you’ll be grabbing! Have a great day y’all! Thank for stopping by ❤

  • Dr.’s Remedy ~ Rise & Shine Collection

    *These polishes were provided for review

    Happy Friday y’all! Comin at ya with some perfect-for-summer goodness! Not to mention the most healthy nail polish option out there. Don’t quote me on that but I’m pretty sure it is! Dr.’s Remedy Enriched Nail Polish has great things added like tea tree oil, garlic bulb extract, vitamin C, wheat protein, and much more. The formula is also 10 free! Nothing you don’t want and all the things you do want all in one place. I’ll Link you HERE for more great info on this brand. Now let’s get into the polish.

    SERENE Salmon is a bright peachy pink creme polish. This is a 2 coat polish for sure. My pics use 3 coats because of my air conditioning issues. Remember that? Well, it was an on going issue until like 3 days ago! My polish just kept bubbling and no matter what I did nothing worked to help it. I tried 7 different base coats but it ended up just being too hot in my apartment. I was even sent this set twice just in case it was a formula issue. I promise you it’s not. My polish was just not drying or applying correctly. Anyways, here is 3 coats of SERENE Salmon.

    MAGNIFICENT Magenta is a bright orchid creme polish. Again, this is a 2 coat polish but ya know… AC problems. Such a beautiful color. I really love this one. I used 3 coats for my swatches.

    I also used TOTAL Two-In-One as my base and top coat. As a base coat this polish helps strengthen and encourage nail growth while as a top coat, bringing top notch UV protection to prolong the life of your manicure! Such a great product to have in your collection!

    My camera washed out just how bright these colors actually are. I would look at the macros for color accuracy. These polishes are all available now so don’t wait to pick them up! They are a little on the pricey side to be honest but they are so worth every penny. If you get them let me know and we can do twin nails! Each polish is $17.25 and TOTAL Two-In-One is $19.95. Or you can buy the trio for $49! Grab it now while it’s on sale! I Hope you all have a fantastic weekend! 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 ❤

    Taylor Made Polish ~ Summer Brights 2021

    *These polishes were gifted

    Hello! Today I am bringing you some polish I was recently gifted. I have never been gifted anything like this so I was over the moon. The entire summer collection from Taylor Made Polish consisting of 6 full sized polishes. I’ll be showing you the brights now and the neutrals hopefully tomorrow. Let’s get to it, shall we?

    Sun Kissed & Lemon Twists is a bright sunshine yellow creme polish. So fun and summery. It makes me feel fresh ya know? As with most yellows the first coat was a tad streaky. It built up nicely in 3 coats. I used 3 coats for my swatches.

    Siren is a muted red creme polish. This is a pretty unique red for me anyways. I really love it Formula is great and opaque in 2-3 coats. This will depend on the length and free edge of your nails. I used 2 coats for my swatches.

    Hey Babe! is a medium electric blue creme polish. This one was the best of the 3 brights. Formula was perfect in 2 coats. And I just love this shade of blue! I used 2 coats for my swatches.

    This is not the only brand doing the primary color thing this summer and I am really loving it! What are your thoughts on this? These polishes are available now for $10 each, $27 for the set of brights, or $54 for the whole 6 piece collection, brights and neutrals! Links below! Have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by<3

    Glisten & Glow ~ Polish Of The Month June 2021

    *This polish was provided for review

    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 ❤

    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 ❤

    Saki Cosmetics ~ Winter Cremes

    *These polishes were provided for review

    *Picture heavy

    Hey y’all! First post from my new place! I even have my tree up and decorated already 🙂 I’m so very happy. So, today I have for you Saki Cosmetic’s Winter Cremes. 6 cremes that are perfect for the season. Let’s jump right in, shall we?

    Aspen is a dove grey creme polish. I absolutely love a good grey polish. I should reach for them more often. this one had a wonderful application. Opaque in 2 coats but for most of these I used 3 coats because of my super white nail tips. Price $12 CAD

    Orianna is an ochre yellow. I love this type of yellow. I don’t like my yellows eye searing. Muted and/or pastels are my favs. This one has a nice creamy leaning crelly formula. 2 coats would work but I used 3 coats for my swatches. Price $12 CAD

    Estelle is a light minty creme polish. Ooooohhhh I really like this color. I give in to anything light and minty like this. I just can’t help myself! Isn’t she just gorgeous?! Ok enough lol. This beauty will be opaque in 2 coats but again I used 3 coats for my swatches. Price $12 CAD

    Demetria is an olive green creme polish. This is one of those pretty ugly colors. I can’t stop looking at it lol. I think this looks really good with my skin tone. I think it will also compliment any other skin tone. For me it’s so pretty. 2 coats for my swatches with this one. She was a dream to work with. Price $12 CAD

    Robyn is a medium dusty grape purple creme. My favorite shade of purple. This collection just has all my favorites lol. I recently have bought 3 polishes with this same color! This one has a fantastic formula and would probably be fine with just 2 coats. Of course I used 3 coats for my swatches. Price $12 CAD

    Stella is a deep teal leaning blue creme polish. Definitely a gorgeous color for winter. I feel like this is another color that would flatter any skin tone. It made the perfect night sky for my nail art. She has a great formula as well. 3 coats for my swatches. Price $12 CAD

    This whole collection is right up my alley. Such a great set for the winter. These will totally work for any season as well so keep them close at hand. The Winter Cremes will be available on December 18th. Have your clocks set and your buying fingers ready! Have a great day ❤
