Pretty Jelly Summer Indulgences Collection:
Top (L->R): Daydream and Electric Limeade.
Bottom (L->R): Melon Sangria, Wildflowers and Festival

Today I have a new-to-me brand called Pretty Jelly! If this name sounds familiar, it's because these polishes are made by Liz of Liquid Jelly, one of my favorite blogs. So, today I have 5 polishes that make up the Summer Indulgences Collection. After the jump you will find the usual swatch and review :]

CIRCLE GLITTERRRRRRR! I really love the glitter mixture in this polish, "soft purple, pink, blue, yellow, grey glitter". It really does remind of flowers too haha, nice and delicate and pretty :]

I did 2 coats of Wildflowers over Zoya Mira. I was happy I didn't have issues getting the circles out and application was not an issue. It dried in good time as well. The only issue I had with this is for me it seemed a little (what I call) basey, it could use a dash more glitter methinks.

I wish the neon of Orly Mayhem Mentality photographed better :[ It looks great with this neon glitter topper! Festival is a "glitter top coat with neon pink, blue, green, yellow and white glitters". I really like the balance of the glitter sizes and colors in this one, it's a great neon glitter topper to have!

I did 2 coats of Festival over Orly Mayhem Mentality. No issues with this one, good dry time, good application, and a good amount of glitter. I didn't have to fish for stars either! :]

I tried to layer this over a lighter color so it wouldn't deviate away from the original base color too much. I also let some of the base color peek out so you could see the contrast. Anyways, This is Melon Sangria! It is made up of a "sheer red-orange jelly base with big white, green, yellow, orange and pink glitters". 

To be honest, this was my least favorite out of the 5. It had potential for me to enjoy it, I like the glitter mix against the base color! I'm just not so sure about the sheer jelly base. For me, a jelly base needs to be more buildable, otherwise I don't entirely see the point to it being colored. :-\ That's just me though! I know some people enjoy using jelly based polishes to change the look of other polishes, just not my thing.

I did 2 coats over Julep Hayden, a peachy color. I did find this one to be a little basey as well, but not as much Wildflowers. I felt the dry time was just okay on this one, I'd wait between coats to avoid pulling or slippage. Application was fine!

This one was my favorite of the 5. Electric Limeade is a "pale yellow base with neon blue and green glitters amidst holographic shimmer". I like this one because it's not white based :P and the way the colors pop against the base color. The holographic shimmer really adds a nice touch, too!

This was 3 coats of Electric Limeade. I didn't have any issues with this one at all. Dry time, application, ect were all good so no complaints from me.


Liquid Jelly Daydream

Daydream is a "white base with neon pink, soft yellow, and mint glitters". I think we all already know how Lacey feels about white based polishes lmao, but for some reason indies keep makin' em because people can't get enough of 'em! Each to their own :P I DO like the tiny neon pink glitter against the white though!

I did 3 coats of Daydream. Application was great and I had no issues. This also had a pretty good dry time for being a white based polish. No complaints really!
