Pretty & Polished - Popples


Hellooo fellow polish lovers!

As you may recal, a few weeks ago I asked for your input in my very first indie polish purchases! (you can read my blog post about it here) I decided to order some polishes from Pretty & Polished and from ILNP, and all of my orders have arrived now! So today I'm showing you the first of my new cuties :)

From Pretty & Polished, I ordered Popples, which is a white crelly with pink, bright green, and blue matte glitters in it from varying sizes. It's a perfect summer polish :) I also ordered Tomboyish, a thermal polish!.


As the weather was so nice lately, I decided to start with Popples, which suits these summery temperatures perfectly. I used three coats of Popples here, without a base polish (besides my OPI Nail Envy). I finished with one coat of my Fast Drying Top Coat from Only You.


The colours of the glitters are super nice and vibrant. An small issue I had with the polish was that on the website, it said 2 to 3 coats were enough for full opacity - I did 3 coats here and in real life (not in the pictures), there are still some baldish spots here and there.

The polish also sank into the glitter (as is sometimes prone to happen) and my one coat of top coat wasn't enough to do anything about that as it sank too. You can see this clearly in the picture above on my index finger: the glitters are sticking out of the polish a bit.


Popples is, all in all, a lovely polish, but I had some minor issues with it. I might try it on top of a white base coat next time for better coverage, and make sure to use two coats of top coat to seal the glitter in properly :)

Do you own anything from Pretty & Polished? Thanks for reading!
