Swatches & Review - 2 shades from Pretty & Polished!

Hi loves! I am happy to show you 2 gorgeous polishes from Pretty & Polished today. These were sent to me by Hypnotic Polish, an amazing webshop that carries a great amount of indie brands and ships worldwide. Pretty & Polished is one of them and I had been eyeing one of these shades since FOREVER. Just stare at these gorgeous swatches Cris did of Tomboyish.

Pretty & Polished Dresden Doll Diamond and Tomboyish


Pretty & Polished is poured in the typical round bottles, and holds 15 ml. The brush is round and spreads nicely yet isn't too flexible. Can I say I adore the logo on the bottle ^^? Those 3 little droplets, so cute! Let's take a look at the 2 shades, shall we :-)?


Pretty & Polished Dresden Doll Diamond green jelly glitter
Pretty & Polished Dresden Doll Diamond is a gorgeous hunter green jelly base filled with a brighter green glitter in both circular and hexagonal shape. I looove the circle glitter and do wish there was a bit more of it. The formula is nice, the colored base isn't too sheer and you have some time to fiddle with the glitter before it sets. It doesn't need much placement but as always with larger glitter bits, some extra care is needed.

I swatched 3 coats over a base of Duri Rejuvacote and topped with Glisten & Glow HK Girl topcoat.

Pretty & Polished Tomboyish teal thermal polish
Semi cold
Pretty & Polished Tomboyish is a thermal polish that goes from a soft greenish grey shade when warm, to a dark teal when cold. There is a holographic shimmer presence as well as black bits? Not sure of they belong there lol, though it doesn't look weird. The color change is quick and it changed a lot on me while wearing this. Funny thing: apparently my middle finger on my left hand is dead, as it would take much longer for that nail to change while the others were in their warm state already! It applies really easy, the formula is a bit thin but easy to control. The finish is a bit gritty so a good topcoat is recommended.

I swatched 3 coats over a base of Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blue and topped with Glisten & Glow HK Girl topcoat.
