One day I'll swatch regular polishes but I feel that the indies are under-represented in the blogger microcosm and need a voice. I WILL BE THAT VOICE, EVEN IF IT MEANS SHOWING YOU INDIE POLISHES EVERYDAY, HURTING YOU AS THEY ARE QUITE HARD TO FIND! A hint - Etsy "Notify me by email" is your friend. All I do to find these polishes is to turn on the notification and wait, and be prepared to drop the cash when needed. Anyway, on to Pretty & Polished Valentino over the painfully-hard-to-photograh China Glaze Pool Party.
Before we go much further, it might be worth you checking out another review of mine featuring a black and white glitter in a clear base - Cover Band Sticks 'n' Stones. Both hard but not impossible to get if you're quick off the email, they're kinda similar. Valentino doesn't have the bar glitter Sticks 'n' Stones does, and has smaller micro glitter. Whatever, I'll take 100 different kinds of these, I just can't get over how good flat black and white glitter look together. Layered over the eyeball-punching China Glaze Pool Party, well, it's a winner. Application was decent, this is one coat. These glitters are really economical! You only ever need one coat.
The Verdict: I love both these polishes and they're magic together, as much as my camera hates the neon. I don't care that this is a lot like Sticks 'n' Stones which is like Connect the Dots, the world needs more glitter like this!
