The Polish Bar

Today I'm sharing a few polishes from The Polish Bar, a shop that I had not tried before.

Janice sent three polishes of her choosing to me for free and I was so surprised when they arrived. Each of them are different styles of glitter polish which she makes very well.
(I'm using her descriptions (italicized below) for each polish.)

Better Things has ultrafine light green, baby blue, purple hex glitters, and a dash of purple-green iridescent glitters in a clear base.

The formula is surprisingly smooth and very easy to apply. I wore two coats of Better Things over one coat of Revlon Hazy.

Look at that shifting shimmer!

By Starlight is a major glitter bomb! It has rainbow hex glitters, bar glitters, silver stars and many, many other glitters in a clear base.

I didn't dig around or fish and ended up with two holo stars, so there's a 50/50 chance of getting one!

I used two coats over Color Club's I Believe in Amour.

Party Dress has hot pink microflakies, pink holo hex glitters and fuchsia dot glitters in a sheer black jelly base.

I wore two coats of Party Dress over Love and Beauty's Magenta. Again, this polish was easy to apply and fairly smooth to the touch.

Look at the shimmer in there! It looks like it has holo shimmer particles in it, even though its not in the description. The polish leans a little more magenta than my photo shows. I couldn't color correct because it turned the purple shimmer blue. Its less red, and a much richer magenta than what my photo can show. Party Dress is really gorgeous and my favorite of the three.

All three have great formulas and are so much fun to paint with! You can get yours at The Polish Bar's Etsy Shop and check Polish Bar news and updates at their Facebook page.
