SASSY TIPS POLISH: Swatch & Review

Pin It

Today I have 2 polishes I was sent for review made by Sassy Tips Polish! This is a brand I wasn't aware of and I always like giving new indies a shot. After the jump I have swatches and a review for you :]



Here are my macro shots of the polishes I'll be swatching today:



And on to the swatch and review!

Kat contacted me on making a custom polish, this is what she conjured up for me. My only requests were: "I  do love green and blue glitter of different shades. white base? I'm not a fan of white bases haha but I'll try anything once!" SOOO here we are! Lacey is a pearly, shimmery, white based polish with aqua small hex, aqua larger hex, and some matte light blue flower glitter. Where are the flowers you ask? Well, I didn't like them haha plus, after you layer over them you can't see them so I felt like they were kinda drowned out :| While I'm not a fan of white based polishes or pearly finishes, I liked this a lot for some reason! I was shocked how much I liked it haha. Weird stuff.

I did 2 coats of Lacey, no undies. It was a little thick to apply. I ended up adding a drop of thinner which helped make the consistency easier to work with. It was a smooth application before the thinner, just a little too thick in one coat for my tastes. The glitters came out well, no digging was needed. The dry time was a little on the long side, but that's a white based polish for you. Waiting in between the 1st and 2nd coat really makes a difference.

I couldn't find a name to this one on the bottle. BUT I was excited to try it just from looking at the bottle :] This polish is made up of a shimmery blue base, silver hex, small blue and red hex and some medium blue hex here and there. Kinda reminds me of the perfect 4th of July/American holiday of any sort polish.

I did 2 coats of this no named blue glitter, no undies. I'm not trying to be harsh when I say this, but this polish was a total let down application wise to me. When I first started swatching it, the polish looked and applied like an old, thick, nearly dried out polish. You know what I mean? I dropped a little bit of thinner to restore it to something a little more acceptable. :-\ It happens I guess. Even with some thinner, it was almost like spreading peanut butter on toast. But, the dry time was good, I can say that much haha. This one was just a bust for me.
