Pretty & Polished Hello Dolly

Hey Peeps!

I’ve got another lovely indie polish for you today. It’s the beautiful Hello Dolly from Pretty & Polished.

I’ve actually had this baby for a long time – it was one of the first polishes I bought from Pretty and Polished- and I’m not sure what took me so long to wear it, but I’m so glad I did!

Hello Dolly is a mix of tiny pink prismatic glitters, and various sizes of lavender, white and pink hex glitters. There are far less of the larger pink hex glitters, so as you’ll see in the pics below, I don’t have one on every nail, but I think that’s kind of cool.

Hello Dolly has a pretty easy application. I didn’t really have to fish around for any of the glitters, I just made sure to put a generous coat on each nail to get a good variation of them. In the pics below I layered 2 coats of it over 2 coats of Milani Orchidia. Peep it:

This is definitely a mani that’s a little out of my comfort zone because I don’t usually wear pinks and purples too often, but I freakin’ love it! The mix of glitters in Hello Dolly is so pretty and girly.

You can snag your very own bottle of Hello Dolly from Pretty & Polished’s Etsy shop here. Chelsea is really good with doing restock quite often, and she announces the exact time and date that restocks will happen. You’ve just gotta have quick fingers 😉

The lovely Llarowe will also start carrying Pretty and Polished within the next couple of weeks ago, so that will be another awesome opportunity to get your hands on this beauty.

Anyway, let me know what you think of Hello Dolly and have a super Sunday! 🙂

Pretty & Polished Freedom Calling

Happy Monday and Happy Memorial Day!

I’ve got a quick post today to show you one of the newest lovelies from Pretty & Polished: Freedom Calling.

Freedom Calling is a mix of red, white, blue and silver glitters of all different shapes and sizes in a clear base. It’s a very fun and patriotic color, so I though it fitting to do a mani with it for Memorial Day.

In the pics below I painted my nails with 2 coats of FingerPaints Inkblot Blue, and did an accent nail with 2 coats Zoya Sooki. Then I topped all nails with one coat of Freedom Calling. You can definitely do more coats if you want more glitter, but I was happy with the coverage that I got with one. Check it out:

So what do you think of Freedom Calling?

I think it’s kind of like a red, white and blue version of Connect the Dots.

It’s a perfect little polish that makes it super easy to do festive nails. I’m definitely gonna use it for a 4th of July mani this year as well.

You can buy Freedom Calling from Pretty&Polished’s Etsy shop. The mini bottle that I have is 7ml and it goes for  $4.75 a pop. It’s out of stock right now, but Chelsea does a good job of re-stocking pretty often, and she always announces when a re-stock is planned. So keep your eyes peeled and you can snag a bottle for yourself 🙂

That’s all for today peeps. Let me know what you think of Freedom Calling and have magnificent Monday 😉

Pretty & Polished Phoenix

Happy Thursday Loves!

I hope you all have had a great week so far! Today is my Friday, so I’m looking forward to powering through the work day and getting to the weekend! 🙂

Today I’ve got another awesome indie polish for you. It’s Phoenix from Pretty & Polished.

Phoenix is a super gorgeous polish made up of a pale orange base packed with tons of small orange, yellow and red matte glitter (mmm I love matte glitter!), and medium red hex glitter. It’s so freakin’ beautiful! It’s like a little fire in a bottle.

It can probably be worn on its own and be opaque in a few coats, but I have a small bottle so I decided to layer it to save as much as this lovely as possible. I layered it over the awesome, fiery orange beauty that is China Glaze Riveting.

In the pics below I have 2 coats of Phoenix layered over 2 coats of Riveting. The glitter in Phoenix spreads really well, but you do have to fish a little for the hex glitter. That’s ok with me though, because the end result is amazing! Check it out:

I wanted to throw in this picture because it looks like my nails are glowing!:

.

Awesome right?!

I couldn’t stop staring at my nails when I wore this because it was like they were on fire! I love it!

You can buy Phoenix from Pretty & Polished on Etsy. I’m not sure if Phoenix is available in a full size bottle, but the little one like I have is $4.75

Let me know what you think of this lovely and have a terrific Thursday! 🙂

Pretty & Polished Jawbreaker

Happy Saturday Peeps!

Today I’ve got an awesome little lovely from Pretty and Polished called Jawbreaker.

Pretty and Polished is a custom/handmade polish shop on Etsy. I’m really loving that so many creative people are getting into the custom polish game and making such beautiful creations that you can’t find from the major polish brands.

Anyway, Jawbreaker is a milky white base packed with multi-colored glitter in different shapes and sizes. And the combination of the base color and the glitters does a perfect job of emulating a jawbreaker. I love it so much! In the pics below I used 3 coats. You can get away with 2, but I did 3 to make it a little more opaque. Peep it:

Cool right?

You can purchase Jawbreaker from Pretty and Polished on Etsy here.

The small bottle like I have is $4.50 and the full size bottle is $8.

Let me know what you think of Jawbreaker and have a great weekend!
