Pretty and Polished Concoction and Peebles

A few day ago I showed you Pretty and Polished - Vampire Sing-a-Long over China Glaze - Foie Gras.
But....the Vampire didn't come alone! It was accompanied by Concoction and Peebles. And these are the polishes I am going to show to you today.

First up is Pretty and Polished Concoction. It's a deep purple jelly with purple flashing flakes and a load of color shifting sparkles. They say it's holo sparkles but I find them more color shifting like the particels in Ozotic Elytra polishes.....

Here we go:

The formula was a bit tricky, it worked a bit like glue. At first I used a base (Seche Vite) but that didn't work at all, extreme bald spots everywhere. So these swatches are without basecoat and that worked a lot better. Next time I most certainly will add some polish thinner and see how that improves the spreadability. This is two thick coats of polish.

And then we have pretty and Polished - Peebles.
It's a bubblegum pink jelly with yellow and iridescent microglitter and yellow and pink hexes. It's happy, sunny, juicy and fun!

Have a look:

Peebles had a much better consistency then Concoction: not at all glutinous! This is 2 moderate coats of polish. It's a lovely color, especially when your in need of a "vleugje" (just a sniff) springtime!

You can purchase Pretty and Polished polishes on Etsy: PrettyandPolished that is where I purchased mine.
