Pretty and Polished Pixy Chix

*****PRESS SAMPLE*****

Today I am going to show you one of Pretty & Polished's new glitter top coats. This one is called Pixy Chix, it is inspired by the delicious candy Pixy Stix. How cool is this?!!! There is blue, red, green, and purple micro glitter to make up this beautiful polish. I have to tell you that I was super excited when I received this one and tried it out right away. Then I decided to do a full mani with it cause I loved it so much. So now here's all the details....

Pretty and Polished polish is 3 free and cruelty free. The ingredients are: N-Butty Acetate, Ethyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Isoprpyl Alcohol, and glitter. They are free of Dibutyl Phthalate, Formaldehyde, and Toluene. A full size bottle is 15ml and has 2 stainless steel bb's and costs $8.50.

This picture shows you how you can wear it alone or over another polish. I wanted to show you how many coats it took me to get full coverage with this. 3 coats gave me full coverage and boy was I pleased! The application on this was superb, no clumping or fishing for glitter. It went on so smoothly that I truly loved working with this one. You know how with some lesser brands that you just have to fish for glitter and put on multiple coats to get full coverage, well, with this one you don't have this problem.

Then once I finished the demonstration photo for the coats I decided to try my first glitter gradient with this beauty. Boy did I love this. I didn't have to keep applying the glitter to the sponge to get my gradient, it only took like 1 dab of the sponge to get the coverage I wanted with my glitter gradient. I only had to go back to add more because I wasn't quite pleased with where my gradient was fading so I adjusted that.

Pretty & Polished lacquers can be purchased at either their Etsy Shop or their website.
