Pretty & Polished Fall Glitters - The Holos

Pretty-and-Polished-Fall-Glitter-Holos

Hi guys! Today I have part 3 of the Pretty & Polished Fall Glitters, The Holos. The Fall Glitters collection includes 3 holographic microglitters; Gussied Up Gold, a gold holo, I Can See Your Holo, a silver holo, and The Skies Are Falling, a blue holo. The three polishes had pretty much the same formula and dry time, so I'm going to mention it here instead of below the swatches like usual. Application and formula for these polishes is excellent, smooth and creamy. They dry in about 5 minutes with topcoat. Although they have a slight textured feel to them from all the microglitters, it's not gritty or bumpy and just one coat of regular topcoat smooths them out. These polishes don't cause any staining on skin or nails. The only word of caution is to be careful not to get any on your skin, or you will have to deal with all the glitter stuck on you during clean-up. Swatches are all 2 coats with topcoat for shine, since these dry to a demi-matte finish.

Pretty & Polished Fall Glitters - The Crellies

pretty-polished-fall-2015-glitters

Hi guys! I really excited for today's post. I have the entire upcoming collection from Pretty and Polished to show you! It's an 8 piece collection, I've spent about two weeks swatching and editing, and I ended up with 30 photos. Since that's way too many photos for one post, I'm breaking it up into 3 separate posts. The Fall Glitters consists of 8 polishes, 3 glitter crellies, 3 holo microglitters, 1 glitter flaky, and 1 thermal crelly with flakies. On today's post you'll see the crellies.
