Swatch & Review: Pretty Beautiful Unlimited – Vintage Spring 2017 Collection 


Good Morning and happy Friday!! This week has been completely cray-cray. Monday the kids had a 2 hour delay, Tuesday, no school because of all the snow and after that, I really don’t remember what happened. What I do know is that today is FriYAY and I am thankful for the weekend upon us. For the past 2 weeks or so, I have been in having a total swatch fest and I am finally starting to see the light at the end of tunnel. This can only mean one thing, more drool-worthy polishes for us to buy!

Today I have 6 of the 12 polishes from the upcoming Vintage Spring 2017 Collection from Pretty Beautiful Unlimited. #Selfishplug, if you missed Wednesdays Up Close and Personal, you’ll want to go back and check it out as it featured the maker of this amazing brand, Virginia Shaw. And she’s pretty amazing, if I do say so myself. Anywho…my review is based solely on the polishes received from the maker for review. Please check for other blogs for a review on the remaining polishes.

**All swatches are done using Commitment Issue Peel-off Base Coat by Vapid and Tonic Topper by Tonic (shiny) and Matte topcoat by Turtle Tootsie Polishes (matte). Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**

Overall: According to, vintage, when used as an adjective means, “representing the high quality of a past time,” or “being the best of its kind.” I think Virginia did an amazing job capturing the vintage feel. These are the colors are reminiscent of those you would see in an older painting. The formula is easy to work with and while they dry very semi-textured, a nice glossy topcoat with smooth everything all out. I think this polish are a definite collectors item…get it? Never mind, I’m no comic.
