Pretty & Polished!

 
Hi Everyone!!! I hope you all had a fantastic Easter and great start to the week!  Today I have two gorgeous polishes for review from Pretty & Polished!! 

You can purchase Pretty & Polished on Etsy or Pretty & Polished on My Shopify. You can also find out more information, upcoming collection information, along with swatches on Pretty & Polished - Facebook, on Twitter @prettynpolish, on Instagram @prettyandpolishd and at http://www.prettynpolish.com/. I highly recommend taking a look around, as Pretty & Polished always has awesome creations and an amazing formula!
 
Also, I'm excited that these are both blue for Autism Awareness day!! I have friends that teach Autistic children, so I'm very happy a day can be set aside to spread awareness!

First up is a color-changing!! LOVE it!  This is Dreams of Mermaids!  Definitely reminds me of mermaids!
 

For this mani, I used 2 coats along with KBShimmer Clearly on Top top coat.


And I made a video on vine!!!! Make sure to check it out HERE! You can see how the water instantly changes the colors!


 
Described by Chels:  Dreams of Mermaids is a stunning color changing polish. In the bottle you will find this polish to be a shimmery blue but put it on and let it warm up and yo will see it change from Blue to Green right before your eyes! This polish is also packed with blue and green glitters of different shapes and sizes. A true stunner and a lovely reminder of oceanic life!
 
Our color changers are effected by temperature. Your natural body temperature can sometimes warm them enough to change or perhaps when you have a hot/cold drink in your hand or when you put your hands in running water. Watch them go back and forth over and over in cold and hot water!

Color changing polishes will not be effected by base or top coats.


So I have a quick little story.  My hands are almost always cold.  Oh, my feet too!  But Mr. CC always teases me that my hands are like Meat Hooks because they are so cold.  So I absolutely love to see the polish change colors on me!!  And it does during the day, so that means my hands do have some warmth to them hehe :-)  But for swatching, I don't know if it is because of all the remover and washing my hands, but this stayed dark blue until I got into the light box.  I love how the pictures transition, because the bulbs are warm!  Isn't that so cool?  And it leaves my free edge of my nail slightly "dipped" looking of the blue (cold) color!  Amazing!

For this next picture, I cheated and held my hand up to the bulbs for a second...LOL ;-)



Close ups!





Next, we have April Fool For You!


For this mani, I used 2 coats of Zoya Kristen (LOVE this color!!).


I applied a nice coat of April Fool For You over top, and finished with KBShimmer Clearly on Top top coat.



Because I love my nails to be extra glossy, I did add an extra top coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.  The big hexes (aren't they so cool!?!) do lay flat, but in these pictures above, it almost gave the illusion that they weren't!


Described by Chels:  April Fool For You is a lovely full coverage glitter polish. You will find beautiful metallic shades of blue and purple tossed in with large satin white hex glitters. You can wear this over another color or do our favorite and layer it on its own for an out of this world effect!


I wanted to make sure I had lots of hexes on my nails, but if you like a less glitter look, I think you can apply lighter.  Also, I want to try this with full glitter with a couple coats!  I bet that looks so pretty!!  Since the blue and purple glitters reflect, it's very eye catching!




Close up!!
