Pretty & Polished Spring Collection & Humble Beginnings

*press sample*

Hey there! I have to start off saying that I think I'm jinxed. Any time I'm being sent polish to review I break a nail and have to do the review with nubbins.  I wish my nails were just a little longer, but I couldn't wait to swatch and share these gorgeous polishes! 


I'm in a Pretty & Polished fan group on Facebook, and Chels, the creator, asked if anyone wanted to swatch some upcoming colors. I jumped at the opportunity. Pretty & Polished was my first indie polish, and still one of my favorite brands.  I have two gorgeous colors from her Spring Collection and an oldie but goodie from the Humble Beginnings collection. Let's jump right in! 

Meet Me At The Fishing Hole
 

Meet Me At The Fishing Hole is a blue crelly base with green/aqua color shifting flakes. 


I used three coats plus topcoat.  The application was flawless. I did three coats because it's a jelly and was rather sheer after the first coat. I prefer full coverage and to have no VNL. 


Just look at this polish! It's stunning! I thought it looked lovely in the bottle, but when I put it on and really saw how awesome the flakies are I was in love! 

Pretty & Lilacquered
 

Pretty & Lilacquered is a purple/pink that changes to white/light pink in heat.  It has blue and pink matte micro glitters.  


This is three coats plus topcoat. It dried slightly textured so I used topcoat to smooth it out.  The pics above are in the warm state!


Here is Pretty & Lilacquered when cold. Pretty & Polished is known for her awesome thermal, color changing polishes, and this one definitely does not disappoint. 
 

I was really impressed by this color. It looked pretty in the bottle, but it's beautiful on. I like it in both temperature states, and think it will be flattering on all skin tones.  Formula was great and easy to apply. 

Elvis' Pink Cadillac
 

I was sent Elvis' Pink Cadillac from the Humble Beginnings collection.  These are six polishes that were from older collections and are being re-released.  Elvis' Pink Cadillac is a light pink jelly with  black matte hexes and small dots.  


I did three coats plus topcoat for these pics. The formula on this was great. I didn't have to fish for glitter at all. It came out easily on the brush and went on the nail without having to dab it on.  It dried slightly matte so I finished it with topcoat go a smooth, shiny look.

The other polishes being released as part of this collection are Punk'd Up Betty, Sand Art, Swing, Galaxy-E, and Bayou Blitz.  If you missed them before now is your chance to get them. 

Summary
Overall I'm impressed by these polishes. The formulas were great and the colors are beautiful.  I can't wait to try the other colors from the Spring Collection. 

You can buy these polishes HERE at 10:00AM EST on March 20th.  Please make sure to like Pretty & Polished on Facebook and follow her on Twitter and Instagram.
