Pretty & Polished: Swing

Today . . . was a day. I'm glad that it will be over shortly so that tomorrow can be a fresh start. And to bring me into tomorrow, I have Pretty & Polished's Swing. Swing is a bright jelly red with black and white glitter dispersed throughout. It's a bright, cheery color and this particular manicure made me smile big time, for a reason that you can see in my swatches.

Do you see what I see in the photo below? On my middle finger? You might be thinking that it's just a dud hexagon. But I think that it's Pac-Man, munching on a pac-dot/ black hex glitter. It makes me smile in a big way when I look at my nails.

Application of Swing was great. I used three thin coats to obtain the level of opacity that I have, with one coat of Seche Vite topcoat to finish the manicure off. The glitter was easy to work with and I pulled a nice mix of glitter sizes without having to search them out.

All photos were taken using natural light (outside and indoors) and no flash.

The jelly quality of the polish seemed to change the color of red depending on what light I was in so I swatched this in multiple light sources. And by the way I think it looks great in all of the light sources.

A great polish!
