Pretty & Polished: Penguins & Peacocks

Pretty & Polished

Full Review after the cut~

Firstly, apologies for over-cast & varied light settings. December has been a busy month. The wheather hasn't been too nice and once it is, I jump at the opprotunity to get out of the house. For better lit photos & nail wheel swatches please go {[ HERE ]}

base used- 1 coat NYC "Flat Iron Green"

Pretty As A Peacock | a darker, slightly green base filled with purple, teal, blue, and emerald green glitters.  I stopped trying to build up PAAP after 4 coats.  2 coats above a dark green base (1 coat of  NYC "Flat Iron Green.) I suggest playing around to figure out which polish brand will work best as a base for PAAP. NYC and PAAP did not dry too cooperatively, but as one can tell adding a base really does bring out the deeper emeralds.  

base- Zoya "Snow White"

Everybody Loves Penguin | a very creamy, smooth white base with medium sized yellow and black glitters mixed in with larger black hex glitter. I simply ADORE how the the yellow-mustard-gold glitters pop against the white base. Something about the yellow glitters stand out wonderfully in the milky white base. On it's own ELP is readily build-able, I applied 3.5 coats on its own and it matches 1 coat on top Zoya "Snow White," Again, to be noted: tricky picking & placing the black glitter.

the yellow glitter is very easily noticeable! 

Verdict: I HIGHLY recommend ELP if you love  this color combination. Again, check out this post  {[ HERE ]} for more photos.

Pretty & Polished can be purchased here.

I cannot say about "wear" time since I've been using the glue-method  for glitter polishes.
