I'm back! With more Pretty and Polished Swatch Spam to share with you today! I received these polishes at the same time as the Holiday Collection, but didn't feel right putting them up in the same post. So you guys get two posts from me today! Let's jump in!
First up we've got It Gets Better. It Gets Better was created to help raise money for the It Gets Better Project. 50% of the profits of this polish will go to the Project. From the Etsy listing, "The It Gets Better Project was created to show young LGBT people the levels of happiness, potential, and positivity their lives will reach – if they can just get through their teen years." I think this is a great project and message to be sending out! As well the polish is just beautiful!
It Gets Better has a minty green shimmery base filled with hex glitters in yellow, blue, purple, green and red. The base is sheer enough that the hexes in the first layer still show through, although it is not sheer enough to be considered a jelly. I love this polish! It's absolutely beautiful. I will be wearing this with pride! This was two coats.
I also have Mannequin Hands to share with you. This is a milky sheer beige pinkish base with small pink hexes throughout. I love the idea of this colour, although I'm not 100% sure this works with my skin tone. Although my hands do look mannequin like!
The pink hexes in this makes it really unique. It is soft and delicate enough to be work appropriate if you can't wear crazy colours, and the glitters make it just fun enough if you want that little something extra! This was 3 coats. If you have longer nails over a lot of VNL you might need 4 coats or use some undies.
I love It Gets Better and think it's the perfect polish to wear year round. I also love the message that goes along with this and that it is for a good cause. Mannequin Hands is beautiful, I wish my hands didn't look so pink against it!
Mannequin Hands is in stock (at time of publication) and can be found on Pretty and Polished Etsy store for $8.00 US for a full 15mL bottle and $4.75 US for a 7mL mini bottle. It Gets Better is not currently in stock, but I believe there will be more coming! Remember to like Pretty and Polished on Facebook and follow on Twitter to keep up with the latest news!
Do you like either of these? Would you wear them? Hope you have a great day!
