Pretty & Polished Bubble Tea....what is bubble tea?

This is one that came in my spring surprise swap and was so excited to see it! It's a really unique polish by an indie company called Pretty and Polished. It's called bubble tea which I had no idea what that is and thought this looked more like a kiwi. After the almighty wikipedia told me what it is I think I want to try it though!
A milky lime green base with micro-glitter in silver and medium hex black glitter make this indie polish SUPER unique. Insanely fast dry time and super smooth application my only issue was having to work a little with the glitter....which DOES settle to the bottom of the bottle. BUT turning the bottle upside down for a minute of two redistributes them nicely.
Here's a close up and, as you can see, it's a natural jelly sandwich polish! It does take three coats to make it opaque so I tried it over a two greens and I also mattified it which looked AWESOME.
 From left to right we have the polish done in three coats with a regular top coat, then three coats of polish with matte topcoat, then a single coat over Essie Navigate Her, and last a single coat of a coat of Orly Green Apple. I think my favorite was the one over Essie.

Last but certainly not least is hubby's picks for this week:
To help him make this a challenge I opened up the nail art box. He picked the fruit fimo slices....hrmmm. Interesting. The polishes he chose are Julep Selena, OPI Love Is A Racket, Julep Oscar, and Julep Zoe. I already have an idea!


  1. It does look like a kiwi! Speaking of fruit, your hubby's picks scream papaya to me. :)

  2. That is such an unusual looking polish!! I love the micro glitter

  3. It's quite fun isn't but I'm not sure she makes it anymore. If you add her on Facebook you can message her and see if she can stock it.
