The Polish Bar Late Summer 2015 Collection

***Press Sample***

It's Friiiiiiiiday!!!  W00T!  Every Friday I think of the same meme that I seem to see in my Facebook feed on a bi-weekly basis:

But is just sums up the feels of Friday so well!

This Friday I've got four of the seven polishes from The Polish Bar's new Late Summer 2015 Collection to show you!

And I finally had an excuse to use the pretty flower hair clips my mom got me last year on her vacation to Hawaii ^_^  On to the polish!

First up is Hanalei Bay:

Hanalei Bay is a white creme polish with various purple, pink, blue, and turquoise colored glitters throughout in different shapes and sizes.  I applied two thick coats in the photos above and the polish applied super smoothly and evenly, which I honestly didn't expect because of the fact the glitters are on the larger end of the spectrum.  It was a very pleasant surprise!  Dried to a shiny finish, but I added a layer of KBShimmer's Clearly On Top to help smooth out those glitters.

Next is Lanikai:

Sun shot!!  Ohhhhhh the holo goodness!!!

Lanikai is a pretty, bright neon pink with a scattered holographic shimmer throughout.  I am wearing two thick coats in the photos above, though I tells ya, you may be able to get away with it as a one-coater, especially if you have shorter nails that don't tend to have visible nail line.  Dried in good time, too, to a shiny finish.  Again, I added Clearly On Top to make that holo POP!

Here we have Waikiki:

Waikiki is a fun off white glitterbomb packed and packed and PACKED with lots of tiny neon glitters!  This one was more on the thin side - I applied three coats in the photos above (thinner than the previous two polishes) and you can still see nail line.  If you apply it thicker, most likely it will be opaque in three coats.  This one dried to a textured finish (due to the glitter) so I added Clearly On Top to smooth it out.

And last but not least we have Seychelles:

Sun Shot!!

Seychelles is a gorgeously bright neon green with a scattered holographic and gold shimmer.  This one was the biggest stunner of the four I received - I mean WOWZERS, what a looker!  Same application as Lanikai, though a tad thinner, so two thick coats should bring it to opacity.  And as the others, there is one coat of Clearly On Top, because I'm an adult, and I do what I want.

These four beauties and their three beautiful friends are all available today at 4pm PST in The Polish Bar shop!  You can also follow the Facebook page and Instagram for updates on new collections and release dates :)

What do you think of these polishes?  Do any of them strike your fancy?


Polish was sent to me by the maker for swatches and a review.  All opinions and experiences with the polish are my own and my review remains 100% honest.
