b.i.t.c.h. by jaclyn: Valentine's Day Collection
I'm using the official descriptions for each polish as published in the online store and the additional comments are my own.
Chick Flick is a super fun pink glitter bomb. It's loaded with pink or all shades, sizes, and finishes, creating the perfect topper and it can be layered to full opacitiy in 3 - 4 coats.
I wore one coat over Worst Book Ever. The glitter topper is super sparkly, especially under those round spotlight style lights - it's pretty mesmerizing! No issues with formula or special application methods needed for this effect.
Heartbreaker is a beautiful pink leaning purple holographic polish.
I found this polish to have a subtle holographic effect and a slightly metallic finish. The formula was good and opaque in two coats.
Hearts & Shit is a fun glitter topper with silver holographic hearts, purple holo microglitter, and transparent purple heart glitters.
I wore one coat over Shake It Off for a heart shaped galaxy effect! The microglitters in this topper really add dimension and spark over such a dark base color. No issues to report, I was able to get one to two hearts on the brush with each dip of the brush and no digging or fishing. It applied smooth and easy.
Hottie - aka Jen's Polish because our reviewer from xoxoJen.com didn't want to take this one off to finish swatching the others - is a stunning, bright, royal purple holographic polish with magenta/red shift.
UNF. Yep, this one gets the UNF rating! It's absolutely beautiful in any lighting situation. It has such depth and pow and absolutely glows from within! Have you ever seen a glowy holo? I'm not sure I have before this one. It's my favorite of the collection. If you can only get one polish from this launch, this is it!
Just Red is - well, just red. It's a red metallic glitter topper that is perfect for nail art and creating glitter gradients.
I wore one even coat over Let's Makout. Formula was perfect with this one and I imagine the possibilities are endless. A combo jelly sandwich pond mani would be pretty with this!
Kiss-Off, Bitch is a beautiful creamy flamingo pink polish with holographic sparkle.
A very nice rose pink - not mauve but truly rosy. I love this creamy shade of pink and it's subtle holo sparkle. (more evident out in the sunshine)
Let's Makeout is a gorgeous red-orange creamy polish with holographic sparkle.
Ever see one of those post-it note page flags? The red one? This matches it in office lighting, like, exactly! I enjoyed using the creamy formula which was opaque in just one coat.
Love & Lipstick is a gorgeous pink jelly packed with metallic pink microglitter.
I had saved this one to swatch last so I could wear it for a few days. Little did I know I was going to fall for Hottie the way I did! I finally did swatch and wear it and it's really beautiful. Such a bright vibrant shade of hot pink with a glass fleck finish, quite a special polish! Two lovely coats will make you fall in love with it too! My second favorite of the collection.
Love Me or Hate Me is a beautiful and complex magenta/berry holographic polish with red micro fleck.
Definitely a complex polish and I'm happy to say my camera totally caught it! I was shocked because I am usually cussing it out with red/pink shades. At the top of the nail it looks like pink holo shimmer is floating there, near the sides and deeper in you can see that red micro fleck Jac mentioned in the description it's also present in the first image's bottle. This one is stunning, has depth and is all kinds of pretty! I used two coats for opacity, formula was super smooth and easy to apply.
Sex & Candy is a gorgeous deep berry red holographic polish with pink holo microglitter and black to pink colorshifting flakie.
This one made me say WOW! with the first stroke of the brush. Those purple flecks you're seeing in the image are really there. No saturation, no trickery - for real, legit, there. Those are the microglitters flashing and boy do they flash! The formula was super smooth and opaque in one coat.
Shake It Off is a stunning deep purple holographic polish.
This leans a bit of a smokey purple and sometimes brownish purple in certain lighting. The holo is subtle but sparkles well in full sunlight. I wore one coat with topcoat, formula was good.
Worst Book Ever is the perfect medium grey holographic polish.
Yup, what Jac said! Love this shade, a good medium grey seems nearly impossible to find sometimes! It's name absolutely cracks me up, even though I've not read the book. It is blue leaning and in shady areas where the lighting is more blue, this leans purple! One easy coat and you'll be grey and sparkly!
