Hello friends!!

Pretty & Polished is 5!!! yay yay yay!! This is one of my absolute favorite indie brands!! not only is their formula great but ugh.. they have such a huge heart with all the charity polishes they do! I absolutely love them! To celebrate their anniversary they are bringing back four oldies but goodies complete with old labels! There is a tiny bit of difference to them of course because of ingredient availability etc but they are still super cute! Let’s take a look at them!



Is a lavender crelly with multi colored hex glitters.


The formula on this baby is good a bit tricky but not hard to work with. Glitter pay off is good and they are spread easily and without dragging. You see three thin coats plus glossy top coat in the pics.

Mannequin Hands


Milky white peachy crelly filled with creme and peach hex glitters.


The formula on this baby is good. First two coats are a little iffy but it totally levels itself out and fully covers on the third coat. As a matter of fact I don’t think I’ve seen such good coverage with a crelly this shade ever. You see three coats plus glossy top coat in the pics.

Salt and pepper topper on clear base with hex glitters of different sizes.


The formula on this is wonderful. The glitters are easy to come by and easy spread very easily, the larger glitters are a little harder to catch but you definitely get at least one in every nail without any struggle. You see two coats here on top of “A walk in the clouds”

And your girl is sooo smart that she actually used a dusty as base for this salt and pepper topper haha!! damn it I couldn’t help it! I just love my dusties too much!


But of course! I do still have a little bit of brains in me and had actually swatched this over white and black before trying the dustie.. I just didn’t love the way those glitters lined up on my middle finger almost as if I had done it on purpose. There are two thin coats plus glossy top coat in the pics.



Day Trippin’


A pink (when hot) to purple (cold) thermal polish filled with tiny glass flecks.


What to say about Pretty & Polished thermals?! they are the bomb digs! Their transition is super super easy to achieve and the formula is wonderful! you see three thin coats plus glossy top coat in the pics. From left to right you see it in its cold state, both states one next to the other and cold state.

  1. 5 years! I remember when the brand launched, and it’s so hard to believe it has been that long! I love the idea of a flashback launch!
