Swatch & Review: Sun Polish – #5 and #17

Hey y’all! I’m back with a new indie brand, that officially launched May 27, 2016 and soon to be making waves on the indie scene, Sun Polish. All the way from Southern California to my hot little hands in Maryland, I have the pleasure of swatching and reviewing 2 of their 10 exciting polishes. This brand appeared on my IG based on ‘similar accounts I interact with,’ and I’m so excited it did. Here’s the inside scoop….Sun Polish “…empowers women by making them look beautiful.  The formula is free of Toluene, Formaldehyde, DBP and Camphor. A portion of the proceeds will go to organizations that empower women.”

At first glance, I was a little caught off guard because this brand doesn’t use the ‘traditional’ polish names, instead they use numbers. I was sent #5 and #17, 2 very different polishes, so lets jump right in…

Sun Polish arrived beautifully and securely packaged. The polishes are in rounded, square bottles with standard brush applicators. Currently, polishes are exclusively sold online and retail for $12. Sun Polish is made and only ships within the US and offers free standard USPS shipping.

#5 is a deep, rich, dark navy blue crème. Shown here in 2 coats, this polishes dries shiny. The formula is consistent with other crèmes and is completely opaque in 1-2 coats.

#17 is a pink, jelly, shimmer. Shown here in 4 very thin coats, this polish dries shiny. The formula is thin and applies and builds well. Although there is still some VNL (visible nail line), this polish could be completely opaque in 4-5 coats.


I definitely see my self using these polishes more. #5 will be great for a future 4th of July mani and #17 would be perfect with a little black and white double stamping nail art. So tell me which is your favorite? As always, thanks for stopping by and hanging out a bit.

That’s all for now!
