$weetcheeks Polish Black Ice, Gothic Ember, and Vous Êtes Mon Soleil

* These products were provided at a reduced price in exchange for an honest review.*

Today I have a new-to-me brand to share with you - $weetcheeks Polish. Not only is $weetcheeks a Canadian brand but $1 from the sale of each bottle is donated to Vancouver Orphan Kitty Rescue Association. How great is that?!

I was happy with all three of the polishes I am sharing today and was especially blown away by how pigmented all three were. Hope you love them!

Black Ice
Black Ice is a bluish black holographic polish, with complete coverage in two coats. It shifts between blue and black, much like black ice, sometimes it's visible, sometimes you can't see it until you hit it.

Guys, this was a ONE COATER for me! It's so pigmented and easy to work with. I love how the blue tone softens the harsh black and adds something different and unique.

Gothic Ember
Gothic Ember is an amazing black(ish) polish, which is full coverage in two coats. Its black based, with orange and red holographic flake in it, designed to look like burning embers.In some lights, the base looks black, others it can look like a deep brown. My hubby had the honor of naming this one- and I think he did a darn good job!

This was another one coater for me - with a few dabbed spots. The formula on this one is thicker but I didn't find it difficult to work with. A few drops of thinner would probably be perfect for those who prefer a thinner formula. The holo sparkle on this was super pretty and the base read more brown on me than black.

We hadn't had sun for quite a while so I took a short Instagram video under artificial light to show the sparkle.



Vous Êtes Mon Soleil
Vous Êtes Mon Soleil is an extremely stunning purple holo polish. This one has a lot of sentimental value to me, as it is made in honor of my mom. She used to sing this song to me when I was young. I love her tons and she is the strongest woman I know, especially now. My mom never wears polish any more but she is rocking this right now!

This is such a beautiful polish and I love the sentiment behind it. This one took two coats for me and dried to a satin finish. I like it both with and without top coat.
