Polish TBH Summer Aquarium Collection Part 1

    Hello there my beautiful polish enthusiasts!! Today I have part 1 of a very special collection for you. This is the first indie polish that I have been sent for review and swatches and I am absolutely thrilled to be heading in the right direction finally!! Chrissy from Polish TBH has given me the wonderful opportunity to review her new Summer Aquarium Collection which will be released here on July 1st. This is a collection you will not want to miss out on.... I promise!! So without further adieu, ONTO THE POLISH!!

First up we have 'Anemone' which is my absolute fave out of the entire collection. "Anemone is a bright pink scattered holo graphic with a slight shimmer finish." This polish also dries with a satin type finish. For these photos I used two generous coats of Anemone with no undies and I used Seche Vite top coat on only my pointer and middle finger so that you can see the difference in finishes if you were to leave off the top coat. I like it either way, but adding a top coat definitely gives the holo a better pop than it would without the top coat. I let each coat dry completely in between because this is a neon type polish and I just wanted to be sure it wouldn't drag like most neons do. Application was super easy on this one. A fun note to this polish, its also black light responsive, unfortunately I don't have a black light to be able to show you. *sad face* Chrissy has a picture on her Instagram though! Follow her there @polishtbh :)

   Next up we have 'Moon Jelly'. 'Moon Jelly' is "A purple jelly with purple glitters in different sizes and blue micro glitters." This polish is sooooo pretty and I'm glad to have it as part of my growing jellies collection. Application on this one was easy as well, and I used three generous coats, no undies, with top coat for all of my pics.

     Lastly for Part 1 of this collection I have for you 'Sun Coral'. "Sun Coral is a yellow-orange jellie mix filled with gold flakies, gold micro, orange, and pink glitters." This polish is a lot of fun! Its bright and I love the choice of glitters that Chrissy went with on this one. I'm a sucker for pink so the pink glitters made this polish that much better for me. :) In these pics I used three generous coats with no undies, and added Seche Vite top coat. Like the first two polishes this one also applied really well. This one is the sheerest of her jellies in this collection, so if VNL bothers you, try layering it over a corresponding color first to help reduce it. I think a color like China Glaze 'Sun Worshiper' would be a great pairing for this one.

     I am very impressed with this collection from Chrissy!! It definitely screams summer time to me. If you would like to purchase these polishes from her, she will be releasing these in her new shop here on July 1st! Also check out her Etsy shop here until then, to snag some of her older polishes.
