Polish Addict-Swatches and Reviews

Tonight, I am excited to review a new-to-me indie brand, Polish Addict.  I will be showing you four of her polishes-all glitter jellies/crellies.
The first one is called Summer Lovin'.  Summer Lovin' is a white crelly with yellow, red, green, lavender, and pink small and medium matte hexes and squares.
 Application was very nice. I used three easy coats and the glitters spread well and evenly on the nail. I did not need to do any fishing. What you see is what came out when I polished my nails!
 The polish had a great consistency as well. It was neither too thick nor too thin. I used a top coat of Seche Vite and it smoothed out.
 The macro shot of Summer Lovin' shows the glitter in better detail!
 Next, we have Jellyfish 1.  Jellyfish 1 is a transluscent, gold shimmery base with micro fuchsia and blue glitters in it.  I also noticed some green micro glitter in it as well.

 Again I had no issues with this polish at all!  Application was easy breezy and the glitter came out and spread out nice and evenly on the nail.  I used three coats for opacity.
 I used a coat of Seche Vite to smooth it out.
 You can really see the shimmer in this macro shot!
 Neon Nights was the funky one of the bunch!  And by funky,  I mean LARGE black round glitters and medium black rectangles and LARGE blue hexes!  Mix that with some LARGE pink hexes and some medium orange and lots of micro glitter and you got yourself some funky nails!  I personally love the mix of this glitter and will say that the playfulness of it won me over.
 Neon Nights was the finickiest of the bunch, but worth the labor.  I used three coats for opacity and had to dab all the medium and large sized glitters on my nail, except for the large black rectangles which came out in droves.  All the smaller glitters came out readily.
 I love the opacity of this crelly and noticed with all four polishes that Polish Addict has gotten that part down pat.  She used a perfect mixture ratio of base to pigmentation in order to see the glitters enough through the layers without seeing VNL.  Excellent job in that respect and something many indies have a hard time doing.
 I love circle glitters!  Something about this polish reminds me of snowmen....
 Lastly, I have Summer Berries.  Summer Berries is a pink crelly base with an array of "berry" colors.  I love the micro red glitters which reminded me of strawberries!  I love how this polish really captures the name.  Summer Berries is packed full of glitter and has a lot going on in it, but somehow it just works.  I love the crazy in this polish and the cohesiveness of the colors really pulls it together.
  I used three coats for opacity and I had no issues at all. The glitters came out easily and spread well.  I love the different styles of glitter in it too-squares, circles, hairy glitter, hexes.  I say, "The more, the merrier!"

 Love this!!!
