Welcome back to another Monday Swatch & Review! Before I get started, about 2 weeks ago, I posted a Press Release of all the “throw-backs’ and Black Friday news from P&P. I hope you had an opportunity to take advantage of the pre-order or at least marked your calendar for the WEEK LONG Black Friday sales/offers. If you didn’t get a chance to read it, make sure you do here.

As promised, today I have polishes from the Winter Collection by Pretty & Polished (P&P). This collection contains 12 new shades split between 4 finishes; crellies, glitters, cremes and multi-chromes. To keep things exciting and you wanting more, I have a partial swatch and review, 4 polishes, 1 with each finish.

**All swatches are done using Commitment Issue Peel-off Base Coat by Vapid and Topped with Quick Dry, High Gloss Top Coat by Pro-FX (shiny) and Matte Me by Jior Couture (matte). Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**

Overall Thoughts

Formula: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 out of 5 of their ideal formula and great consistency. No issues to report.

Application: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 out of 5 because of the great formula(s) on these polishes, the application was super easy to apply and work with. No fishing for add-in i.e glitters, flakies, etc,

Opaqueness: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 out of 5 because these polishes are opaque in 2-3 coats. The glitters did not require sponge application because the are dense and packed enough to be opaque with regular application.

Price: $$

Overall: ♥♥♥♥♥ this collection is getting a 5 out of 5 from me based on the 4 of the 12 polishes I reviewed. I love the names of these polishes and how well the looked shiny, matte or with nail art.

The Winter Collection releases TODAY, Monday, Nov. 14th and polishes will prices accordingly: Crellies $8.50, Glitters $8.50, Dusty Cremes: $7.50 and Multi-Chromes: $9. But you can score the entire collection for $90!! That’s a $11.50 SAVINGS AND purchasing the whole collection qualifies for free domestic shipping!!!
