Pretty & Polished Happy Hour Collection Swatches & Review

Press Sample

 Today I have the Pretty & Polished Happy Hour Collection to share with you! This is a stunning selection of 6 holographic infused shades named after your favorite Happy Hour drinks.

Along with the new shades, Pretty & Polished will also be releasing an assortment of new Cocktail inspired Bath & Body Products, including Mani Melt Shooters scented and named after popular shots.

First I’ll show you the Happy Hour collection and then descriptions of the new Bath & Body items added for this release.

Sangria

Pretty & Polished Happy Hour Collection Sangria Swatch

Sangria is a medium red jelly packed with red holographic micro glitters. I reached full opacity in just 2 coats and a thick top coat to smooth everything out.

Purple Nurpl

Purple Nurpl is easily one of my favorites from this collection.  It is a deep purple jelly base with an assortment of multicolored holographic glitters mixed in so you get different sparks of color swimming in the dark purple base.  I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

So Pretty & Polished did a thermal to mimic the drink!  Tequila Sunrise is an orange jelly changes to a red orange jelly when exposed to cold. The photos above and directly below show Tequila Sunrise in it’s warm state, and under the macro directly below, you will see Tequila Sunrise in it’s cold state.  I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

The shift is incredibly subtle and hard to capture, but in person you will see the 2 shades distinctly.

I like the range of colors within the collection, almost like a transition from Summer to Fall as you go from the lush orange, green and pink to the deeper purple, red and brown. I had good application with all 6 shades and recommend a nice thick top coat (I used Girly Bits Glitter Glaze) for Cosmopolitan, Purple Nurpl, Sangria and Long Island Iced Tea since those have micro glitters which give off a very slight texture once try.

Price: $9.00 Each | $50.00 Full Collection
