I have reviewed shades from The Polish Bar previously on this blog and have always been impressed by the gorgeous polish (especially holos) Janice makes. So, when she asked me about reviewing her Spring 2015 collection recently I was excited to see what she’d been working on!
The Polish Bar’s spring collection consists of six shades total and will be released in her shop on March 19th at 4 PM PST. I used Out The Door top coat for the below swatches. Let’s take a look!
The Polish Bar Diamonds In The Sky is described as a medium blue holographic polish. Three coats. The formula was smooth and easy to apply. Very icy and beautiful!
The Polish Bar White Lilac is described as a light lilac holographic with silver glass flecks. Three coats. The formula was wonderful, not too thick or thin and applied very easily. This is so delicate and lovely, I can see myself rewearing it quite often.
The Polish Bar Sweet Pea is described as a white crelly (which appears light purple due to the flakies in it) with deep violet, hot pink, lavender, blue, indigo and iridescent microflakies, purple glass flecks and a small amount of holographic pigment. Three coats. The formula was great, not too thick or thin and went on easily. Holy hell, this polish is amazing. Photos just can’t do it any justice at all, it’s so twinkly and gorgeous in person!
The Polish Bar Green Goddess is described as a mint green crelly with violet, lavender, iridescent and purple microflakies, pink, blue and purple glass flecks and a small amount of holographic pigment. Three coats. The formula was the same as Sweet Pea, really nice. Another one that my photos just can’t do any justice to- it’s incredible!
The Polish Bar Cotton Candy is described as a light pink crelly with hot pink, light pink, light purple, gray and white dot glitters. Three coats. She did include a note with the polishes that the glitter in this & the next one may require fishing as they have a tendency to sink. I definitely found that to be the case- the formula was not so thin that it pooled in the cuticles but the dot glitters were definitely sparse without fishing, however they were pretty easy to grab with the brush. I spoke to the maker about this and she will be adding in extra dots in the retail version to make sure they’re very easy to fish out. I’m not the biggest fan of these type of glitter polishes personally but the base color was really soft and nice.
The Polish Bar On A Cloud is described as a light blue crelly with yellow, aqua, purple, green and light blue dot glitters. Three coats, I probably could have done a fourth to completely even it out. The formula was very similar to Cotton Candy although I had to do a little less fishing with this one.
Overall, I think this is a wonderful collection. Although the crellies were a bit of a miss for me, the other colors more than make up for it with how incredible they are! Sweet Pea and Green Goddess especially are my top picks. Again, these release in her shop on March 19th at 4 PM PST if you’d like to purchase some for yourself. The full set of six polishes will costs $50 (full size bottles) or $25 (mini bottles). For individual full size bottles, the holographics will be $11 and the crellies will be $8.50.
Which of these polishes is your favorite? Have you tried anything from this brand before? Let me know in the comments!
