Pretty & Polished

Thursday, February 9, 2012 1

Another Independent polish brand I am featuring today is Pretty and Polish!
Pretty and Polish is created Chelsea. I have had the opportunity to interact with Chelsea several times and she is awesome! Super sweet and very accommodating. 

You can find her polishes at http://www.etsy.com/shop/PrettyandPolished
Her polishes come in 2 sizes, 7 ml and 15 ml

Today I have 3 polishes to share with you: Galactus, Fun Haus, Martian Salad

The first polish I swatched was Galactus. I am going to describe this polish as a holographic greyed purple?   I used 3 coats in the pictures. The polish dried extremely fast! yay!
Please note: The formula for Galactus recently received an update. It has much more scattered holographic properties to it and has been given a more purple base.

The next polish is Fun Haus. This is a super cute bubblegum pink polish with slight holographic properties in it.    I used 2 coats in the pictures. Once again the polish dried extremely fast! 

Lastly, I have Martian Salad. I wanted this polish because it is like the sister to Nubar Reclaim. Not as dark as Reclaim but I would say just as holographic.  I used 2 coats in the pictures. Once again the polish dried extremely fast!  

My favorite polish would have to be Galactus....I have a thing for purple :)
