It's Friday morning and I am here! Eeeeeek, it's early for me. But I am rounding up the energy to post my last of the two Sweet Polishes I received from Amanda of Sweetheart Nail Art. You can check out her (really freaking nicely designed) blog here, and check out her newly launched Etsy shop here. As I mentioned in my Birthday Bash post yesterday, Sweet Polish is based here in Canada, over on the East Coast from me so add this one to the Canadian indies!
Here's a copypasta from Sweet Polish Sweetheart's listing on Etsy:
"Sweetheart" is the very first Sweet Polish to be created. It was made for the 3 year anniversary of Sweetheart Nail Art and it's a white jelly polish with small pastel glitters, black glitters, black shards, and light pink hearts.
This polish reaches full opacity and it's full potential when layered over a white base color. Since it is a jelly polish it would require many coats to be able to be worn alone.
Our Sweet Polishes are 3-free and cruelty free. We make sure our suppliers only sell the best products and we only use materials the are safe and well-tested. Many different suspension bases and color bases and glitters go into our product so if you would like a full list of ingredients send a convo msg and we will list them all for you,
PROUDLY MADE IN CANADA
I agree with the description, which is why I opted to layer Sweet Polish Sweetheart over top of OPI White Alpine. Normally I like to do this with polishes that have a white jelly base. It's always better to focus on the glitter application rather than opacity. Application wise, this one was good. No dragging glitter, an even spread - can't really complain! Now I read in the description there's supposed to be some heart shaped glitter but I don't recall seeing any in my bottle, however it's a mini, and even with bigger brands such as OPI, bigger shape glitter won't end up getting into the minis. No big deal, I actually liked it as is! Here's Sweet Polish Sweetheart in two coats, over top of OPI White Alpine, finished with Seche Vite:
And for funsies, here's the swatch above with GOSH's "Matt Effect" top coat:
I gotta say that I really loved this one. I thought the mix was so fun - reminded of candy, the 80s - all things awesome! Out of the two Sweet Polishes I have, I definitely favour this one for it's funk, and Birthday Bash is better for a more subtle look. The prices are very fair as well. One thing I noticed about Sweet Polish is that it's actually quite hard to find! It doesn't turn up in Google searches, so if you want to support Amanda, spread the word.
What's your favourite Sweet Polish? Do you think Sweetheart could have been more with the heart glitter, or does it look fine without?
