B Polished is back with a stunning collection. It is a really interesting mix of thermals and traditional shades that is just perfect for the colder days. This year is big for thermals, and these four definitely do not disappoint.
(promotional samples ahead)
Dear Sweet Pea
When it is cool, this is a warm watermelon jelly filled with gold shimmer and a dusting of multichrome flakes. It reminds me a lot of raspberry lemonade. Once it warms up, it is a soft petal pink. It applies smooth and I didn't have to poke at the flakes to get them to behave. I used three coats plus a layer of Seche Vite for these pictures below.
Engines in the Sky
In its cold state, this is a medium blue filled with a strong golden shimmer and slight iridescent sparkle. When it is warm, it is a wonderfully warm camel-leaning nude. It applies really nicely, and surprisingly opaque in two normal coats.
Forty Seven Eleven
In the cold state, this is a green leaning turquoise jelly filled with sunset colored flakes. In the warm state it shifts to a warm springy yellow-green. It was super easy to apply, especially considering how dense the flakes are, and I only needed two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here.
Knits & News
This shade makes me lazy goth heart sing. In its cold state it is an inky black jelly filled with iridescent rainbow flakes. Once it warms up, it turns into a pale translucent gray. It applies so smoothly and I only needed two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here.
Coffee & Crosswords
This is a warm, snuggly metallic brown with coppery shimmer. It applies like a true metallic, and I bet it would stamp like a champ. I am normally not a fan of browns on me, but I think the amount of reflect here makes this universally flattering. It is almost a one-coater, but I used two plus a layer of Seche Vite here. Next time, I might try sponging on the final coat...just to wake up that shimmer.
This is the ultimate SFW shade. It is a delicate rosy blush. It has a slightly jellyish formula, but I was still able to make this opaque in two medium coats. If we met up at PolishCon this past Fall, and you managed to spy my fingers...well then you saw this sucker. It wore wonderfully...and annoyingly better than the mainstream polish I used as an accent. I made it five days with minimal chipping.
The Polished Mommy has a really unique eye for the details, and this collection displays that perfectly. Not one polish requires fussing or fighting with flakes, and the colors are timeless and flattering. I think that when bloggers make the polish, they really know which boxes to tick.
This collection is available now in The Shop. Do you have a favorite? I don't think I can pick one this time. I can see a different use and situation for each shade.
