Today, I have some swatches from one of my favorite indie brands, Pretty and Polished! Chelsea makes the best polishes! I am so happy I was able to get my hands on so many of them. She recently showed of pictures of a polish coming soon to her shop! The perfect pink and black glitter polish! So edgy but yet so girly. Click here to see it!

You can visit Pretty and Polished at her Etsy shop as well as on her Facebook page.


First up is Pretty and Polished Toy With Me. It is a matte polish with a color changing base. It goes from green to purple and has tiny bits of green micro glitter. I choose to wear it alone with three coats, but you can layer this polish over a base color! If you are not big on matte polishes, you can always add a coat of top coat!




I added one coat of Pretty and Polished Sand Art over three coats of Pretty and Polished Toy with Me. I choose to layer it over Toy With Me because I wanted a lighter base so the matte glitters would really pop! This polish has a clear base and is loaded with green, blue, pink, and purple matte glitter. Jacki from Adventures in Acetone  layered it over black, which I thought was brilliant! Claudia from Holographic Hussy layered it over pink and white, which were awesome combos too! Pretty and Polished Sand Art is a one of a kind layering polish!


Next up is Pretty and Polished Pool Party! The blue jelly base and scattered glitters make it the perfect summer polish! Photos show three coats with one coat of top coat. 


One of my favorites from today's swatches is Pretty and Polished Tart! This is three coats with one coat of top coat! I bought this polish over four months ago, and it still applies like a dream! This polish has a sheer light pink base with a purple shimmer. It has a variety of yellow, blue, purple, and pink glitter.


The final polish is Pretty and Polished Phoenix! This is one coat over two coats of Ulta Sun-Sational. I hated this Ulta polish. Application was crappy with it, but what should I expect? Most yellow polishes do have crappy application in my experience. Pretty and Polished is a layering polish with a lightly tinted orange base with red, orange, and yellow glitter.

The Sand Art combo looks gorgeous! I wore it over green. Now I want to try it on a nude.

Funny enough, I am wearing Toy With Me right now. :D

Great swatches. I love the polishes with scattered glitters, but Sand art really stands out for me. I'm loving those matte glitters, and I really like it on this light base :)

Pretty sparkly polish! Love it so much!

It took me a long time to buy from P&P. I think because I couldn't tell what the polishes looked like in her pictures. I got over it and bought Phoenix and fell IN.LOVE. GORGEOUS! I bought 3 more from her and received them this past Friday-Sand Art, Pool PArty and Forgery. They are all so gorgeous and even better looking than the pictures! Beautiful swatches!
