Woof, thank god it's the end of the week! Life is tough at the moment, and I haven't even got a realxing weekend to look forward to. After losing the job, getting a new job and the car crash, we have then had Parsnip at death's door (thankfully now recovered) and now our landlord is selling the house, so we need to pack and find somewhere else to rent in the next 6 weeks. Alllllll of this has put polish on the back burner, which is sad, because I have been sent some very lovely polishes recently. But better late than never, eh?
The Spring Collection from The Polish Bar is everything you would expect - super soft pastels, a smattering of holo, delicate mixes oh ... and 2 unexpected glitters.
White Lilac was my very favourite. This is an icy lilac and utterly gorgeous. Perfect for wedding season too.
Green Goddess was another favourite - just look at everything that's going on in this polish. It's a very subtle broth and I love the super subtle flakies.
Diamonds In The Sky is a sky blue holo, twinkling like a spring day. Perhaps nothing we haven't seen before, but beautiful nonetheless.
And then Sweet Pea, the kissing cousin of Green Goddess, and another masterpiece of mixing subtle and stark, soft and edgy. Love the flakies, again.
And then the 2 glitters. These polishes were NOT my friends, but -
* I don't tend to go for these sorts of polishes in real life
* because I had mini bottles, the glitters were hard to fish for. If you look at other bloggers' swatches, you'll find more glitter :)
* I deliberately didn't use undies. If I'm honest, I think some nice pastel undies are needed for these polishes, although I did quite like the icy effect the sheerness gave me.
The blue polish is On A Cloud, and the pink is called Cotton Candy.
Janice consistently releases great polishes but is perhaps not as well known as some of her peers, which is a shame. If you visit her Etsy shop HERE, you'll see a range of the new and the old, from pastels to glitter toppers to neons to out and out holos. I am never disappointed with the quality of her polishes, so if you're looking for something new, why not start HERE.
These polishes were sent to me for an honest review.
