I love summer. It's full of picnics, barbecues, family gatherings, fairs... And when I think of a fair I can't help but think of all the homemade goodies - including jellies and jams.
I recently ordered polish from Princess Polish. They arrived today safe and sound. Princess Polish has made some amazing jelly holographic polishes. Jelly polishes take a bit to build up on your nail and several coats are needed. But they are delightful polishes to own and have a lot of depth to them. These polishes also took a bit to build up. It took at least three coats to get to an opacity I was happy with. But I usually layer my jelly polishes over another. It's personal preference.
The polishes applied wonderfully and had a relatively quick dry time.
Let's just get to the photos. I was hurrying because I wanted to make sure I could get photos in the sunlight. But unfortunately - even though the sun was trying its best to shine bright - the wildfires nearby are releasing a lot of smoke and that smoke causes quite a haze. So you can't quite see the holographic goodness. If anyone is close to the fires or has property being threatened I hope you are safe and well.
Blueberry Jam is one of my favorites. But then I am partial to blue. This is a wonderful azure blue that reflects the light in an astounding fashion.
Grape Jelly is my favorite of the collection. A grape purple that isn't too bright, or too dark. It's like the perfect amethyst.
Mint Jelly is the sheerest of the colors. This is four coats. This reminds me of lime Jello!
Orange Marmalade is a gorgeous, bright, neon orange.
Strawberry Jam is a delightful color. It is a rose pink shade that is deep and rich.
Bottom Line: These are wonderful jelly polishes. The holographic sheen is obvious without being overpowering. This is a great new Indie polish line.
