Pretty & Polished Winter 2016 nail polish collection swatches + review [partial]

Press Sample buttonHi everyone and happy Sunday. It’s been a rough week so I hope you are having a relaxing weekend…or trying to, at least. Today I have part of Pretty & Polished‘s Winter collection, which will be releasing tomorrow, November 14. More details on that at the end of the post, but let’s jump into these pretties! 🙂

Pretty & Polished Winter 2016 nail polish collection | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Pretty & Polished That's Just Plum Dandy | Be Happy And Buy Polish

That’s Just Plum Dandy is “dark plum purple Dusty Creme”. Formula is sheer on the first coat, a little uneven on the second, but the third smooths things out nicely. It does dry matte. This is 3 coats plus top coat.

Formula is sheer and jelly-ish but nicely build-able. It does dry matte. This is 1 coat plus top coat over That’s Just Plum Dandy.

I’ve also used it 3 coats plus top coat by itself.

I didn’t find the holographic effect too strong, but you know what? I don’t care. I adore this polish. Usually these types of polishes aren’t my thing, especially when they are sheer, but hot DAYUM, I love this.

Pretty & Polished Yule Thank Me Later over Reflect And Ponder | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Yule Thank Me Later is a “blue to green multi-chrome polish packed with golden shimmer and color shifting flakes.”

I don’t think you need to put this over a polish to show off the prettiness, I just did it to see if it would really change it up.

Pretty & Polished Throw Some Glitter On It! over Creme de la Creme | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Throw Some Glitter On It! is a “full coverage glitter bomb packed with pinks, purples, blues, oranges, coppers, and a scatting of color shifting flakes.”

Formula is a little thick, but this is seriously packed with glitter. It does dry matte. This is 1 coat plus top coat over P&P Creme de la Creme.

My apologies for the poor sunshine photo above, the sun was on its way down. 😦
