Nail polish is a great way to make someone look beautiful and colorful. It gives a trendy and fashionable look for every woman. Nail polish is semi-liquid and is used for application of toenails and fingernails. It is also used to dress nails beautifully and sometime to protect nails. Nail polish is pure version of vehicles paint. Paints for car are not suitable for human nails as its formula is brittle and designed for rigid surface of car or other vehicles. This nail colors and nail polishes are made with different formulas and different composition so that it can prevent cracking that occurs due to nail movements.

Iris My Case, is a Violet pastel crelly with glitters in purple, pink, silver and blue. I applied three coats.

Get Clover It, this is a emerald green jelly with micro shimmer and dots glitter in shades of green, gold and turquoise,  this can be layered over coordinating polish to cover nail line. I'm showing three coats by itself. 

Squared Away, square glitters in a variety of sizes, colors and finishes including metallic and holographic in a clear base. This is two coats over Barry M Blueberry.

Pastel Me More, pastel colored glitters in a rainbow of colors and range of sizes in a clear base. Two coats over Barry M Blood Orange.

I Got A Crush On Blue, Royal blue jelly with holographic silver glitters ranging from micro to extra large. This is two coats over Barry M Blackberry.

I'm in love with this collection, I really like them all!!!
The formula was excellent and the application was very smooth. I didn't have any problems placing the glitters on the nails. I used thin coats for the best results.
