Pretty & Polished Jawbreaker

Good morning everyone! Today I have an awesome polish from etsy to show you guys. It really seems like indie/franken/handmade (whatever you want to call it) polish is the new hot thing...I gotta say, I am a fan. I enjoy buying polish from people who love it just as much as I do. It also seems like 99% of what people are doing on etsy is a bazillion times better than anything the major brands are doing right now. It's refreshing to go through an etsy shop and be able to say I've never seen anything like most of the polishes being sold...how often do you say that somewhere like Ulta? For me, never haha!

Pretty & Polished is a brand that I've seen on a couple other blogs and I finally caved and bought a few polishes. Jawbreaker is the first of the 4 I bought that I've tried out! Jawbreaker is a milky white jelly packed with multiple sizes & shapes of blue, gold, green, purple and red glitter. This polish rules and it totally does take me back to being a kid and eating jawbreakers, I love appropriately named polishes lol! The formula was great on this, it looked good at 2 coats but I wanted more red square glitter on my nails so I ended up doing 3 coats when I wore it.

Sorry about not holding the actual polish bottle for these, I bought it in the mini size and those bottles are a pain to hold and have my fingers not looking all crazy! :)

Pretty & Polished can be found on etsy here, the mini bottles are $4.50 and full sized bottles are $8.00. It looks like Jawbreaker is sold out right now but it should be back this week according the news thing at the top of her store!

  6. That looks really similar to the jelly sandwich Glitta Gloves made. I think she used the OPI Funny Bunny and a Lynnderella polish... Except the Lynnderella polish had no micro glitter. She could have saved some time with this one! Very cute.

  7. I find the name very appropriate for this shade. Makes me think of candy!

  11. I love this polish and am wearing it right now...it's been on since Saturday and I haven't wanted to take it off!  I can't seem to get any of the red diamond glitters yet, they're stuck to the bottom and sides of the bottle :/

  12. Speaking of all of these fun new glitters... did you hear that Lynndarella is looking into intellectual property theft, now? The chick seems to think she invented the stuff.

  14. Jawbreaker is so cute!  I want some independent polishes but I always get to the stores once they're closed, lol.  Just have to keep trying, I suppose!

  21. Adria - there's usually a button under the store message which tells Etsy to email you when the store opens up again - I've used it specifically for stalking frankens and it works like a dream - I got in on the last NerdLacquer sale because of it! :)

  22. I love this polish! The name suites it very well! Indie polishes are my favorites, yet I don't own any yet.

    I *almost* bought this last week... I didn't and then it was sold out! I am so going to snatch it whenever it's available again. Totally reminds me of the movie too (so cheesy, but good!)

    ReplyDelete
  24. wow, this is really beautiful! I so agree with you when you say indie polishes rock!

    ReplyDelete
  25. What a cool and original polish!!! Thanks for sharing!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. This looks great! I ordered Jawbreaker, too and can't wait to try it myself. And I completely agree about the indie franken polishes. I love them and keep stalking Etsy for more polishes like this ;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I may be wearing this color right now as I type! It is my new favorite, and I think the best funky neutral of all time!

    ReplyDelete
  28. is ladies in the limelight a dupe of Did It on 'Em both by opi? just wondering, thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is a cute color! Maybe one day I'll add this to my stash. I'm really loving all of the frankens I've been seeing on Etsy. I agree, they're much cooler than some of the things on the market.

  30. OMG that is crazy cute!

    ReplyDelete
  31. So cool! I love the look of the buried red square glitter on your middle finger!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Nope, the Nicole by OPI is much more yellow :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. THIS IS AWESOME! Makes me think of the movie from the 90s "Jawbreaker" I wonder why? LMAO

    ReplyDelete
  34. That's really cute and very unique! I don't think I've seen anything like it. I keep browsing etsy for polishes and my wishlist keeps growing, your swatches are not helping! :D

    ReplyDelete
