Hello friends, and happy Monday! I hope that you all had great weekends! Today I am so excited to share more new Pretty & Polished shades with you! Aside form the Summer in the City Collection, Pretty & Polished released several other new shades for the summer, including several thermal shades! I have three polishes to share with you today!
Pretty& Polished Sitting on the Dot of the Bay is a gorgeous shimmering teal green jelly base packed with green, pink and blue circle glitters. So summery and tropical! For this swatch, I used four coats and Out the Door, but you could definitely layer this one and still get the shimmery, glittery pay-off. May I suggest layering over Color Club Abyss from the new Kaleidoscope Collection? The formula was easy to work with. The circle glitters did require a bit of placement, but they were not difficult to spread around.
My first experience with Pretty & Polished thermal shades has been phenomenal! Pretty & Polished Summer Sorbet is FABULOUS! There are few words to describe this beauty! The base transitions from a yellow (warm state) to a peachy orange (cold state) and it is packed with purple, bright teal and peachy orange glitters. Throughout a normal day, I would see both phases in normal activity, which I loved! For the swatches, I did put my hand in cold water to get the polish to fully transition, but in real life, it changed just from going into an air conditioned store and then back outside! And often, my tips would be in the cold state while the nail bed would be in the warm state! So awesome! This is three coats with Out the Door, but you could probably get away with two!

Finally, I have Pretty & Polished Gray Skies, another thermal shade! This is a base that transitions from gray (warm state) to blue (cold state) with gray hexes, small round blue glitters and a shimmer throughout. The formula on this one was a bit sheer, but three coats built up quite well. I sealed everything in with Out the Door! Again, I was impressed by the color change in this one!
