b.i.t.c.h. by Jaclyn: Family Jewels Collection

New from b.i.t.c.h. by Jaclyn is the Family Jewels Collection. It consists of six holographic polishes packed with iridescent flakies and four micro glitter texture polishes. Each of which is simply stunning!

Queen Bitch is a fandango pink/purple holo with purple iridescent flakies. In person, this one seems just a hair darker than my images, more of an orchid shade.

Every one of the holo flakies have a fantastic formula that's easy to control and allows time to smooth out each coat perfectly without pulling. I used two coats for most of these, except for Royally Fucked, which needed one additional coat to cover vnl. Sofa King was opaque in one coat, but I used two out of habit.

The next four polishes in this entry are glitter polishes and they have really impressed me. They're micro glitter texture polishes but what makes them really stand out is that three of them are completely opaque in just ONE coat! And they're also metallic, which I've not seen yet in the realm of texture polishes. Maybe I'm out of the loop, but for me, they're unique and I absolutely love them! Jewel encrusted nails without the bulk? Yes please!

Her Royal Kiss-Ass is a smokey purple-leaning taupe micro glitter. Completely opaque in one coat and is a texture polish if worn without topcoat. Unfortunately, I didn't realize this until I was swatching the very last color or I would have taken photos with and without topcoat to show them off both ways. To the touch, they feel just like the pixie dusts from Zoya. I love that texture and these are all super sparkly. SO IN LOVE!

Sparkle Queen is a royal purple micro glitter texture. Beautifully done, don't ya think?

Get Your Own Damn Tiara is a super bright silver texture polish. I used two coats for this one. Maybe because it's a lighter color and in a clear base rather than a tinted one like the others. It might be a one coater if a thicker coat is used, but you can also layer this over a cream or holo color for a different look! I just tried layering it over Queen Bitch and it almost looks like a shifting polish. The Queen Bitch color peeks through the glitter at an angle, but straight on, it pretty much looks like solid silver. Pretty neat!

King me, bitches! is a champagne gold micro glitter texture, I think this would be perfect for Christmas time or New Years. I love the light shade of this one, super wearable even on warmer skin tones.

This is my second b.i.t.c.h. by Jaclyn review, and I have to say I'm quite impressed with all of the polishes so far. I love her new brand name and logo. Speaking of which...I just found out she has a Go Fund Me page set up for the relaunch and one of the donation levels allows you to get an exclusive purple holo polish! If you're interested, here's the link to her Go Fund Me page!

The Family Jewels collection launches at 8pm Central on Monday November 3, at http://www.bitchbyjaclyn.com/.

I love them all, but my favorite colors are Queen Bitch, Her Royal Kiss-Ass, Sparkle Queen, and Family Jewels.
Which are your favorites from this collection?

xoxo, Jen signature

  2. Hi Jen, these are so unique and pretty! My favorite is the aqua one with the name I won't type here... heh heh. Those metallic texture polishes are something I've never seen before, either! Maybe that will become a mainstream brand trend.

    1. Aren't they though? I've got five more polishes for her Winter launch - the Signature Collection, each named after a word of her brand abbreviation! They're very pretty as well and I'm excited to wear them soonish!
