Candii Polished Review

I was hoping to get this post up last week, but I ran out of time (and internet lmao)! Brenda at Candii Polished was kind enough to send me a couple of her beauties. She has been making other cosmetics for a while and recently started making polishes; and she should keep it up, because these are amazing!!

First of all, I would like to talk about how cute the bottles are!! Its an octagon shape, which I love because its so different!! My only complaint is the stumpy handle. It takes a little getting used to; but I don't dislike it enough for it to ruin how cute I think the bottles are!! In this case, I prefer aesthetics over ease of use!


You saw earlier today that my Snowflake nail art had Let It Snow as the base. This is two coats of Let It Snow over black. The depth in this polish is just gorgeous. The application was smooth and the formula was easy to work with.


I can't rave enough about how pretty and shimmery this polish is! It has small and medium white hex glitters and a ton of blue shimmer. Pretty, pretty, pretty!! You all know how much I love shimmer and glitter... add blue (or green) to the equation and I am IN LOVE!


This is Holo Moly! I decided to try it over white, and now wish I had put it on black like Let It Snow... I will try to use this one again in the near future over black (Im thinking maybe a New Years mani)!! This baby is PACKED with medium holo hexes and micro glitter in a yellow jelly base.


This is two coats of Holo Moly! over white. The formula on this one was a bit more watery, but once I painted one nail I got the hang of it so its not too bad.


I tried to capture the micro holo from like 20 different angles standing out in my front yard... and this is the best I got. Trust me, in person it really sparkles!!


Here's a blurred, close-up bottle shot to give you a bit better of an idea of the sparkle... This does it a bit more justice!

Be sure to follow Candii Polished on Facebook here. You can buy these babies at her shop here. The full sized are $7.50 and the minis are $4... so they are a GREAT deal!!
