An Old NOTD: Pretty And Polished Jawbreaker!
Today I’ve got an old NOTD to share with you fine people. I bought Pretty And Polished Jawbreaker and Toy With Me mini bottles at the same time and immediately fell in love with both. I’ve swatched both of them, but I wasn’t happy with my pictures of Toy With Me so I plan to re-do my pictures for that one at a later date. But today it’s all about Jawbreaker. This polish… So much love. ♥
Pretty And Polished – Jawbreaker
Jawbreaker is perfectly named because it looks just like the candy it shares its name with! This milky white based polish is filled with blue, green, yellow, and purple glitters in all shapes and sizes.
I used 2 coats of Essie Marshmallow as my base and then layered 2 coats of Pretty And Polished Jawbreaker over it, perrrrrrfection! Jawbreaker is opaque on its own after 2-3 coats, but since I only have a mini bottle I want to try to use as little of my precioussssssss as possible.
For the best results, I inverted the bottle for about 15-20 minutes and shook it a bit to loosen the grip of the larger hex glitter pieces from the sides of the bottle.
And a macro shot to share with you all. It’s a thing of beauty, so you’re gonna need to maximize this picture. For science.
Pretty And Polished is definitely one of my favorite indie/custom polish makers out there. Her polishes really stand out and catch my attention, which in a market that’s currently flooded with indies right now it difficult to achieve. I only have three of her creations right now but I love them all! Hopefully I can show you guys Party In My Yacht and Toy With Me soon. ^_^
You can check out the Pretty And Polished Etsy page to see when she is opening up shop again. If you look at her feedback section you can get an idea of what her polishes look like and see some of her past creations. I’ve got my eyes on Sand Art, Pool Party, Green Garden, Forever Rose and Bayou Blitz!
