Paint Shop Polish Review

*press sample*

Hey there! Today I have for you a new to me indie brand, Paint Shop Polish.  Candi, the creator, sent me four of her beautiful polishes to review. I received two scattered holos and two glitter toppers.  Let's jump right in!

Scattered Holos

Silver Bells is a gorgeous, silver, scattered holo. It applied flawlessly, but was pretty sheer so I decided to layer it over a creme and do an accent nail of it on its own. On my index, middle, and pinky fingers I have two coats over two coats Zoya Carey (a light grey creme), and on my ring finger is four coats of Silver Bells alone.  As you can see I still have some VNL even after four coats so I recommend layering it. I finished up with topcoat which did not dull the holo at all. 

Meet Me By The Mistletoe is an evergreen, scattered holo. This one was also sheer so I layered it as well. On my index, middle, and pinky finger is two coats over two coats of Zoya Purity (a white creme), and on my ring finger is four coats by itself. As you can see, there really isn't much of a difference layering or not. Next time I want to try layering it over a green to see how it looks.  This color reminds me of a Christmas tree with colored lights on it. It's really pretty!

Glitter Toppers

Mouse Wishes is a glitter topper with different sized blue hexes, blue squares, silver holo shards, and silver holo Mickey Mouse glitters.  I had no issues with application except for the Mickey's which I had to fish for and dab on. I love the silver and blue glitters together. Perfect for a winter manicure. This is one coat with topcoat over four coats of Silver Bells. 

Sinh is a glitter topper with different sizes of white hexes, white circles, and white leopard spots. To be honest I had a hard time getting the glitter out of the bottle for this one especially the leopard spots. The bottle seemed to have too much base. I ended up dumping some out of the bottle and getting the glitters on the brush that way.  The leopard glitters are heavier so tend to sink to the bottom. I did keep the bottle upside down for a little while, and I'm pretty sure it's the opening in the mini bottle that made it so hard for me to get them out. You shouldn't see this with a full size bottle.  I layered Sinh over four coats of Meet Me By The Mistletoe, and I think they make a nice combination for the holiday season.

I really like these polishes, and think that Candi did a great job.  Silver Bells is my favorite of the four I received, but they're all gorgeous.  You can purchase them in the Paint Shop Polish shop, and don't forget to follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest

Thanks for reading!
