Hello lovelies! Today I have two posts to show you guys! First up is Potion Polish’s lovely summer collection! The Uplift collection features a quad of shimmery, flakie filled pretties that are soft and ultra glow-ey! Let’s get to the swatches!
Alive– a soft baby pink base packed with blue/green and red/copper aurora shimmer with a dash of silver holographic glitter.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is smooth and crelly like on application. I had no issues with the flakes picking up form the bottle, and they laid down nice and flat for me. After topcoat, I had no texture. There’s a soft sparkle overall from the silver holo glitter that gives a background twinkle amongst the sea of flakies.
From Within– a very pale lilac with peach to green to gold shifting aurora shimmer and a dash of silver holographic glitter.
Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula applies like a crelly and is easy to build up. I will note, that for application I’d suggest going in with thin coats to really exploit the shimmer. I’d also suggest going in light handed with your brush strokes to prevent any dragging as this one is loaded with shimmer. Overall you’ll easily see the peach to green/gold shift as this one really packs a punch with the shimmer.
Something Wonderful– a soft mint with peach to green to gold shifting aurora shimmer and hints of gold holographic glitter.
Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula feels similar to From Within, so I’d suggest the same application type. This one also dries down a little on the satin side so I’d recommend a glossy topcoat to really exploit the sparkle and shimmer here. Very glow-ey overall!
Halcyon Oops– Just like the original Halcyon from 2017 but due to a manufacturer change with the blue/green chrome flakes, the flakes are a bit larger in size. A super pale pink with a shimmery turquoise glow and blue/green chrome flakes.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula applies like a crelly and this one has a just a touch heavier formula than the others. It applies very creamy and opaque on the nail, and the flakes behaved easily for me. This also dries down a touch matte, so again I’d recommend a glossy topcoat to really make the shimmer pop.
These beauties will release July 6th at 1PM EST. Prices will range between $10.50-$11.00 for each bottle. Be sure to check out my swatch video to see these in action!
