Pretty &Polished It Gets Better: Swatches and review

Back when I purchased the Pretty&Polished Holiday Collection I also came across this beautiful polish and knew I couldn't pass on it. Chels Marie created it in honour of the It Gets Better project, a cause that is close to her heart - here in her own words is why she has made it:

This polish was made for the "It Gets Better Project".
The It Gets Better Project was created to show young LGBT people the levels of happiness, potential, and positivity their lives will reach – if they can just get through their teen years. The It Gets Better Project wants to remind teenagers in the LGBT community that they are not alone — and it WILL get better.

I created this polish for all of the people I have lost to bullying. I understand not everyone agrees with my views on human rights and that is ok. I made this polish so that I could donate 50% of the profits to an organization that I appreciate.

The It Gets Better pledge:
"Everyone deserves to be respected for who they are. I pledge to spread this message to my friends, family and neighbors. I'll speak up against hate and intolerance whenever I see it, at school and at work. I'll provide hope for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and other bullied teens by letting them know that it gets better."

This polish is a mint green crelly (crème/jelly) with holo hexes in all the colours of the rainbow. It also has this gorgeous shimmer that makes the base colour very much like Dior's Waterlily, a polish that is almost beyond beautiful. No doubt that just by looking at the bottle I knew I would REALLY like this polish :D

 Though it is a hybrid I still needed three layers for full coverage - on the upside it dries super fast, with a slightly satiny finish.

Application was slightly tricky - I had to work a little to get the glitters to stay put instead of being drawn off when applying. But with a steady hand and some patience the result is awesome!

I used Nubar Diamond top coat with this and put on a liberal layer and had no grittiness after it was dry.

I tell you, those bubbles were not there when I looked at my nails :O - that's what you get for having a great camera :D

 I really adore this polish. The colour is right up my alley and it doesn't bother me the least that it takes a little extra care when applying.

I love my Pretty&Polished. Chels keep pouring out gorgeous polishes, though not all colours are my thing. But I have yet to look at the polishes she makes and go "meh" or "boriiiiiing" - which is all kinds of awesome.

You can purchase Pretty&Polished here and here, she still does international shipping though the rates are bound to rise because of the newest rises in shipping prices in the US. You also ought to follow her on facebook, loads of stuff going on there and catch up with the blog where you'll get all the news related to P&P

Disclaimer: This polish was purchased by me for review purposes.
