Polish My Life Thank You For Being A Friend Collection Swatches & Review


Happy Friday! This morning I have a new collection from Polish My Life to share with you, this is a 4 piece collection inspired by the Golden Girls! I don't know about you but I love Golden Girls...its one of those shows that I always watch if I happen to come across it on tv. All 4 of these polishes are matte, which is fun! Check out the swatches after the jump!




Before I get into the swatches, I would recommend using a ridge filling base coat with these if you  have noticeable ridges on your nails. Matte polishes tend to emphasize any ridges you already have. If you don't have a matte top coat to use over these I find the best way to prolong wear is to do a "sticky sandwich". You apply a sticky base coat like CND Stickey or Orly Bonder and apply a couple coats of polish, then apply another later of the base coat and 1 more layer of the polish. Mattes still tend to wear quicker that way but it does help a little when you sandwich it that way.

B.E.D. is a red matte. This is inspired by Blanche! This one does not have any shimmer to it but it still looks nice and velvety when its matte. The formula was good, it was a nice consistency and had good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below. The first 2 photos are without top coat and the 3rd photo is with top coat.




Picture This... is a light pinky white, inspired by Sophia. This one also doesn't have shimmer, but it almost looks like it does when its matte. The formula was great, it was a good consistency and I had no issues with it being streaky. I did use a light hand and float on my coats so I'm sure that helped! I used 2 coats for the photos below. The first 2 photos are without top coat and the 3rd photo is with top coat.




Pussycat is a medium tan with gold shimmer, inspired by Dorothy. This is my favorite of the collection, I love how the gold shimmer is visible when its matte and when its glossy. The shimmer is more visible in person in both cases. The formula was good, it was easy to apply and had good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below. The first 2 photos are without top coat and the 3rd photo is with top coat.






Really Rose? is a bright pink with pink shimmer, inspired by Rose. The shimmer in this one is a little hidden when its matte but it really comes out when its glossy. My camera was like NOPE at showing the shimmer but it is there, and visible when the polish is glossy! The formula was good, it was a good consistency and easy to apply with good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.  The first 2 photos are without top coat and the 3rd photo is with top coat.





The Thank You For Being A Friend Collection from Polish My Life will be available starting on 10/7/16 at http://www.polishmylife.com

  3. Heh... I'm just not a matte nail polish person - I like all of these with the gloss! These are great shades though, and all the shades seem to make sense, given the character. I'm surprised Rose's wasn't called St. Olaf, though! Thanks for the review. =)
