Hard Candy-Pretty Polish, Review

I am sad to say that today is my last review for Pretty Polish Glitters, but don't worry I am leaving you off with a great polish! This one was a surprise when I opened my package and such a nice surprise it was!
Hard Candy- "Is made up of so many different glitters in various shapes and sizes that I lost count." This is so true, I could barely make out what all the different colors and shapes are, which in turn makes it lovely.

When I first saw this polish I immediately thought of sprinkle's on frosting, this is why I did a cupcake :). I used a white base underneath with one coat of Hard Candy. On her etsy page she has a picture of the polish done is three coats for best opacity. I really like how the multi colors pop off the white. You can see all the small glitters alot better this way to. Once again there was no problems applying the glitters, she has really nailed the formulas for this collection.

To get this amazing polish for only $8 full size bottle, follow this link, and to see the rest of her glitter collection visit her etsy shop here.

Into The Blue- Pretty Polish, Review

The polish I have today is the last of the 4 that I choose to sample, I wanted this one because I don't have any blue sparkle and I know my sister will love this one as well. I also tried to envision what I could create with this one, I am excited to show you how it looks over my idea :)

Into The Blue- "Is made up of 8 different matte and holo glitters in various shapes and sizes in a clear base." I like the mint green hex glitters with all the blue very gorgeous bottle shot.
My base are two different gradients (I will post the colors for that later this week). The obvious colors to do with this is blue but I wanted to incorporate the mint green also. This one is the most glitter pack from the other 2, no fishing or placing needed, one coat worked perfectly. This one might end up being my favorite :)

Liberty- Pretty Polish, Review

Here is another glitter that I choose to review for Pretty Polish, I wanted this color because I needed to out span my collection to have more Patriotic colors, this past 4th of July I couldn't believe that I only had one red polish. This glitter also has alot of shine to it, sadly it was a cloudy day so the pictures do misrepresent the shine.
Liberty- "Is made up of 11 different glitters in various shapes and sizes in a clear base." These glitters are shiny not matte finished like the Parties Over.

Base colors are Sally Hansen: Silver Sweep, China Glaze: Red Pearl, White on White, and Frostbite. I did two coats of the glitter to get a good variance of the shapes, they applied greatly and formula was very easy to work with.
Here is a quick design I did with all four polishes, I wanted another way to show how it looks on all the colors right next to each other. The glitters did settle more on this one than Parties Over but it mixed back up very quickly. I am very excited to use this polish in my next patriotic mani.

Side note: I just got a new job, you are now looking at an intern/design assistant!! This is a huge accomplishment for me, with the way the market is for Interior Design I am very lucky to have found this opportunity 5 min away from where I live :) This week will be hard I have to work both jobs so that will be 11hrs days, I will try very hard to post everyday I do have some post in the archives :)

Parties Over- Pretty Polish, Review

Today I have my first review post! Jeannette from Etsy store Pretty Polish sent me 4 samples of her new glitter polishes! I original bought the Spectrafliar top coat from her and loved it so much, after seeing my Holo Purple Gradient mani I did she asked for me to review some of her new glitters.
In her etsy store she has 9 new glitter polishes! She asked me to choose ones I like and was surprise to get them all plus an extra! There is a only two set of colors that are similar otherwise there is a great variety for you to choose from.
I am starting off with the one that I was most excited to try- Parties Over- "Is made up of 11 different matte glitters in various shapes and sizes in a clear base." A bottle of confetti is my description! I was really interested in the shape of the glitters, they aren't just circles more like shard's of glitter, you see triangles, rectangles with squares and circles I feel like the base isn't just clear but has some micro glitter also!
I swatch this glitter over 4 coats of Color Club: Pardon my French. You could really get away with any base color for this glitter, I choose a more pale base color to have the glitter shapes and colors show better. Since this polish is packed full of glitter you don't have to try and place glitter you get an even coat for the entire nail, this is always a plus!
Than for a more fun twist I decided to layer Pardon my French over it to create a "jelly sandwich" but with a very thin creme polish. I love how this turned out as well! It reminds me of frosting, which is close to the finish of one of her other glitters that I will have a review for this week.

Holo Gradient

I recently bought Spectraflair top coat off of etsy from Pretty Polish, and have been wanting to do a fun design with it. I decided upon doing a gradient since it has also been awhile since I have done one. This is also my first time using three colors for a gradient rather than two.
Colors I used were, Zoya: Kendal, OPI: Pamplona Pink, Orly: Plum Noir, Spectraflair Top Coat.
Macro shot of the holo greatness!

Here is a picture also of just the gradient alone, which is gorgeous also!
Wow I love this mani! The holoness is amazing, and the colors are gorgeous. I think I am going to like the spectraflair topcoat alot. It is the cheapest holo top coat that also comes in a 15mL bottle rather than smaller bottles like Glitter Gal and Hits.
