GLISTEN AND GLOW | OH, THE PLACES YOU'LL GO COLLECTION

*press samples*

Glisten and Glow upcoming collection 'Oh, The Places You'll Go' is inspired by the Dr.Seuss book, which is a classic from my childhood! This collection contains 4 incredibly vibrant cremes along with 2 shimmer topcoats. Jill (owner of Glisten and Glow) has a formulated a matte topcoat, which she makes in house and is not a pre-made base. In this post I'll be sharing swatches of the cremes and variations of nail art including the shimmer topcoats and matte topcoat. 

Let's get onto the swatches shall we?

----------

GREAT BALANCING ACT

Described as a mimosa orange creme. 

I used 1 coat of her Stuck on Blu base coat, 2 easy coats of colour and sealed with her HK Girl Fast Drying + Super Shiny topcoat. This could easily be a 1 coater, but always apply 2 for good measure and a longer lasting wear time. The formula was incredibly pigmented and didn't require me to use a white base colour for added vibrancy. Along with incredible pigmentation, the application was smooth, creamy and a creme lovers dream come true!

TODAY IS YOUR DAY

Described as a sunshine yellow creme.

I used 1 coat of her Stuck on Blu base coat, 2 easy coats of colour and sealed with her HK Girl Fast Drying + Super Shiny topcoat. This could easily be a 1 coater, but always apply 2 for good measure and a longer lasting wear time. The formula was incredibly pigmented and didn't require me to use a white base colour for added vibrancy. Along with incredible pigmentation, the application was smooth, creamy and a creme lovers dream come true! The vibrancy in this yellow blew my mind as well as how well made this is. This is the first yellow polish I've owned that has such an easy formula to work with. Most of the time I find yellows to be rather difficult to work with and this was smooth sailing!

YOUR MOUNTAIN IS WAITING

The vibrancy is out of this world and just in love with this stunning bright pink!

I love the vibrancy each creme had and feel it's the perfect way to kick off spring! The formula's are are incredibly pigmented and love being able to use vibrant shades like these without the use of a white base. The two shimmer topcoats are incredible and being able to transform any polish into a shimmer! The matte topcoat is stated to not not be fast drying and will take 5-7 minutes to dry depending on application. As mentioned earlier, this isn't a pre-made base and is one Jill has formulated in house.
