Pretty & Polished Summer Fun FX Polishes Review

Press Sample
Happy Monday!! You know I have to give my daily countdown and I am amazed to say that we are down to 2 more days!! Yay! I am pretty excited still, but I must admit there are times when I think of the move and my nerves get really bad. So much so, that it seems as though I can feel my heart pounding. Ahhhh...does anyone know what I mean? Anyway, I am happy to have my first official review of the well-known indie brand, Pretty & Polished to share with you today. Chels sent me two polishes from her Summer Fun FX Collection, as well as, a cuticle balm stick. I know you're gonna love all of these!

Thermal Remedy is a thermal crelly with glitter. It is bright orange when cold and white when warm. I used three thin coats and topcoat for these photos. The formula was excellent, allowing the glitters to disperse evenly across the nail. The bright orange somewhat overpowers the orange glitters, but those glitters really show off when in the warm state. I really love this combo!

The super cool thing is, I ended up with an instant gradient when applied!

Hootin & Holoin' is a deep red holo with an absolutely AMAZING formula. I seriously can't even begin to tell you how much I love this one! Application was so easy, it seemed to apply itself! It was opaque in just one coat, but you know I always use two. Seriously. I could go on and on about this polish. It is really one sexy red that epitomizes the concept of being "grown & sexy." This will definitely by my next date night polish! Ahhh...

The final item I received for review is the cuticle balm stick. I really like that it comes in a small and very travel friendly container, which looks just like a lip balm. The fragrance was super sweet and smelled just like yummy bubblegum. It was noticeable, but not overbearing. This little stick packs a super moisturizing punch! A little goes a long way and leaves you with moisturized, soft, and great smelling cuticles. I want to get this in other scents! At only $3, these are great to have around.

I must say, I didn't expect anything less than near perfection from Pretty & Polished. They are one of the more established brands in the indie world. They have consistently produced innovative, high quality, and great valued products. Again, I cannot get enough of Hootin & Holoin and I can't wait to wear it again. I am also a big fan of their bath and body products, so I will be adding more (including the cuticle balm stick) to my cart for my next purchase.
