Ellison’s Organics “You Are” nail polish collection swatches + review (partial)

Press Sample buttonHello out there in the real world, my awesome readers! Today I have a review of the “You Are” collection by Ellison’s Organics. There are 9 polishes in the collection, and I get to show you 6 of them today. The maker behind Ellison’s Organics wanted to make a collection named by all the things she wants women to believe they are – stunning, extraordinary, etc – “I want my polish to reflect the wonderful women in the polish community!”

Except for two (which I’ll talk about below), the formula on these polishes was excellent. Dry time was very good, with no dragging or bald spots. I used two coats with each polish, and no top coat (top coat did not dull GITD). Glow in the dark pictures were taken after being charged up under a strong black light.

Ellison's Organics Dazzling | Be Happy and Buy Polish

Ellison’s Organics Dazzling is a hot pink polish – now normally this isn’t quite my kind of polish, but there’s just something about summer that calls for hot pink! Don’t you think?

Dazzling glows a very pretty pink! This might be my favorite of the bunch…surprisingly.

Ellison's Organics Stunning | Be Happy and Buy Polish

Ellison’s Organics Stunning seems similar to Dazzling, but it isn’t as hot pink – it has a tinge of orange in there. It reminds me of a neon watermelon or something!

You can definitely tell this is different from Dazzling because of how it glows.

Ellison's Organics Extraordinary | Be Happy and Buy Polish

Ellison’s Organics Extraordinary is a hazard-cone orange polish. Yowza! Wear this when you want people to stop in their tracks and look at your nails.

Extraordinary also glows quite an awesome orange, kind of like an orangsicle!

Ellison's Organics Talented | Be Happy and Buy Polish

Ellison’s Organics Talented is a neon green polish. Fun fact: I used to love this obnoxious color when I was in my 20s and still have a soft spot for it. This one looks a bit uneven in my photos, but it wasn’t visible in real life.

Talented glows very similar to how it looks under regular light. Pretty cool!

Ellison's Organics Unforgettable | Be Happy and Buy Polish

Ellison’s Organics Unforgettable is a gorgeous violet color – simply gorgeous! The formula on this one was a bit uneven.

Unforgettable glows a pretty blue, but it was hard to get it to show up, no matter how long I charged it up.

Ellison's Organics Enchanting | Be Happy and Buy Polish

Ellison’s Organics Enchanting is a deep navy blue polish. This one also went on a bit unevenly and was the only polish you could see the texture that the GITD pigments provide.

Enchanting glows a cool purplish blue color, but it was impossible to capture..showing blue on camera instead of purple. This was also the strongest I could get it to charge up, unfortunately.

Extraordinary, Talented, and Unforgettable seemed to have the longest lasting glow. My picks of the 6 are Dazzling, Extraordinary, and Talented.

All of these Ellison’s Organics polishes are 5-free, though the label says 3-free. The “You Are” collection is releasing on May 22, and each polish will cost $12. Ellison’s Organics will be having a Memorial Day sale starting May 22 through Monday May 25, just use “MEM20” for 20% off your entire polish purchase. You can keep up with Ellison’s Organics on Facebook, on twitter, and on instagram.

Give me a holler and let me know which one you can’t wait to buy!

  1. I have never heard of this brand but the glow shots alone have me falling in love! I actually love how sheer they look too, which is not something I would normally say.
