Pretty & Polished : Summer 2015 collection (partial)

 

Today I have four pretties from the Pretty & Polished Summer 2015 collection. This is a 13 piece collection and is available now in the shop.

Frankly, I think all four of these are perfect for summer. They feel light and bright and happy - exactly how I want to feel all summer long. (As long as the weather is nice. Grrrr....)

Let's get on with it, shall we?

On The Beach With a Pink in Hand is a bright pink crelly packed with white and light blue glitters.

I think this is one of my favourites. You can never go wrong with white glitter and crelly. The formula on this was good. I didn't have to fish for any of the larger hexes and the glitter distributed evenly over the nail. Shown here is three coats & top coat.

Strawberry Lemon Ice is a soft pink creme base with yellow and pink glitters.

I reallllllly wanted to love this one. Look at that milky base and pretty, soft glitter combo! The swatch on the shop from honeybee nails is much smoother than I was able to get it so it may be user error. As noted on the shop, this one is quite sheer and since I'm not a VNL fan, I used three coats to get it opaque which also resulted in the thickness you notice.

The Sea Glass is Half Full is a sand colored crelly base packed with crystal glitter that resembles sea glass and micro blue/green metallic glitter.

I find this polish to be so interesting. I wasn't sure I was going to be a fan and I thought the base would be too yellow for my skin tone. And then I put it on. Dude, I can't even. It's magic. The base is PERFECT for my skin tone and it ended up being a surprise favourite! The formula was good with an even distribution of glitter. Shown here is three coats and top coat. (PS. Pardon the blurry swatch photo - I need steadier hands.)

You Say Goodbye, I Say Yellow is a thermal color changing nail polish that changes from a yellow to a white in heat. This polish also has neon yellow glitters throughout so your white may look a little yellow still.

This is another one that I had some difficulty with application but the polish itself is still super pretty. DAT YELLOW GLITTER! As you can see on my nail tips, I'm not sure if I ever got a color shift with this one or if it's just so subtle that I didn't notice. Shown here is three coats and top coat.


Update: I spoke with Chels and she said that the shift is super subtle so you may not notice it. Also, the yellow glitter makes the base seem yellow anyway which doesn't help with noticing the color change. Still, YELLLLLOW!!
