The Polish Bar Spring 2015 Collection Review

The Polish Bar Spring 2015 Collection

Hi lovelies! I hope you've had a good weekend thus far. I have the Spring 2015 Collection from The Polish Bar to share with you today. This collection consists of two sheer jellies, two holos, and two crellies with flakies. Let's dive right in...

Cotton Candy  is described by the maker as "a light pink crelly with hot pink, light pink, light purple, gray and white dot glitters." The formula on this was quite difficult to work with, as the base was really thick. The glitters were also really difficult to get out; however, I was working with a mini bottle which are sometimes known to present difficulties when applying. Unfortunately, I had to pour some of the polish out, while trying to grab light amount of the base and dab the glitters in place. This resulted in a somewhat thick and lumpy appearance. It appears that topcoat smoothed it out for the most part, but it was still too thick for my liking.

On a Cloud is described as a "light blue crelly with yellow, aqua, purple, green and light blue dot glitters." This is a blue version of Cotton Candy and, unfortunately, gave me the same problems as described above.

White Lilac is "a light lilac holographic polish with silver glass flecks." The formula on this one was absolutely PERFECT! I used two coats and topcoat. I love the softness and this is a great spring polish!

Diamonds in the Sky is a "medium blue mega holographic polish." Again, the formula in this one was great! I used two coats and topcoat. I can never get enough of a good blue holo polish!

Sweet Pea is "a white crelly with deep violet, hot pink, lavender, blue, indigo and iridescent micro flakies, purple glass flecks and a small amount of holographic pigment." The formula on this one was good, but thin. I needed four thin coats for it to become completely opaque. Again, this color is a great one for the spring season. I am partial to the name of this polish, since I call my Kendall, Sweet Pea!

The last polish I have to show you is called, Green Goddess. It is "a mint green crelly with violet, lavender, iridescent and purple micro flakies, pink, blue and purple glass flecks, hot pink micro glitter and a small amount of holographic pigment." The formula was easy to work with and went on without any issues in three thin coats.

Overall, I like this collection, with the exception of the crelly glitters. I would be curious to see if they performed any differently with a full sized bottle. Anyway, these are all available in The Polish Bar's shop now. They can purchased as a set in full sized ($50) and minis ($28). They are also available individually in full sized bottle for $8.50 or $11. Additional information is listed below.
