Pretty and Polished Swing

Good Morning! and Happy Friday!

I have today off and am scheduling this post, so I will be probably still be curled up in bed sound asleep :) I am really excited for a 4 day weekend, which also means I will be painting my nails like a madman woohoo!

Today I have Pretty and Polished Swing to show you. Although I didn't just swatch it. I did the syrup gradient technique on this polish. When I first saw the syrup technique on Pinterest I knew that I had to do it with Swing. The name of the polish is in reference to swing dance music, which was really popular in the 30's through 50's. Swing is a red jelly polish that tends to look a little more on the pink side. There are black, white and silver pieces of glitter throughout the jelly, which when applied regularly looks just like a jelly sandwich in a bottle.

You can see that I didn't manage to get very many pieces of the larger glitter on my nails. I was in a bit of a rush when I was doing this and didn't fish out for the pieces of big glitter. I debated even showing you guys this because it doesn't really showcase how cool the polish is, but I do really like the syrup effect!

I like how my nails look like they are dripping in squishy jelly gorgeousness. It makes me so happy :) Plus the black glitter is to die for. Who doesn't just love black glitter?

Swing can be purchased from Pretty and Polished's etsy shop for $4.75 for a 7mL mini bottle or $8.50 for a full sized 15mL bottle. Chels is currently sold out of Swing, she completely restocked 2 nights ago and is essentially almost sold out of everything. Indie polishes have taken the nail world by storm recently. The next time she restocks I would HIGHLY recommend you pick this beauty up. She generally announces on her Facebook and Twitter when she will be restocking, so essentially just stalk her a little and you'll find out a time when she will be open. OH she also ships to Canada for the very reasonable price of $4.50!

What do you think of Swing? Or my syrup gradient?

  4. "Who doesn't just love black glitter?" Um, me. For a long while it was the one kind of glitter I didn't want, though I have started experimenting with it a little and can see it might have a place. :)
