Polish & Co. 2013 Holiday Collection (L->R) He Was Rusty Around The Edges,
Are You Kidding Me?, Nate Eyes, Seven Figure Rich,
Oh Stop Hating, Accept It And Move On, & The Opposite Of White

Ahhh the first post of 2014! Today I have a semi new-to-me brand called Polish & Co.! I've heard of the brand here and there throughout the past year or so, but now I get to try it for myself ANDDD share my thoughts with you on their 2013 Holiday Collection :]




I have no idea why I did macros of the cremes LMFAO I never do that. But since I did it I figured I'd post them hahahahahaha *facepalm*

He Was Rusty Around The Edges is a medium, pumpkin color with a golden shimmer. This reminds me of a discontinued Wet n Wild polish I owned forever and a day ago. This is a very pretty shade of orange, a great fall color! (Or any time if you're like me and you don't limit color choices lmfao)

I did 2 coats of He Was Rusty Around The Edges. It had a great smooth application and a good dry time. No issues with this one!

I love these names they come up with! Are You Kidding Me? is defined as a shimmering red on their website... but in person, in the bottle and on the nail it's more of a bright shimmery pink than a red lol. When I hold it up to a red polish, like Zoya Sooki, it looks 100% pink. My monitor shows that, but I'm not sure if yours does! Anyways, it is still a gorgeous shimmery polish. It was hard to capture the shimmer, but you can see some of it in the macro :P

I did 2 coats of Are You Kidding Me?. The application was the same as the orange from above. It had a smooth and easy application. The dry time was also without problems.

How pretty is this one? Nate Eyes is a shimmery green polish. It's a little streaky, but it didn't bother me much personally. This polish was the reason why I even did direct sunlight swatches for this blog post. It comes ALIVE in the sun, so sparkly!

I did 3 coats of Nate Eyes. It had a good application, it wasn't like the other 2 shimmers. It was a little more on the thin side and the dry time wasn't as quick as the others. It's tolerable in general, but I wish it had the same formula as the other shimmers.

Seven Figure Rich is a dusty, money-esque green creme. (LOL how I described it in my notes was "dolla dolla bill". Oh dear lord, Lacey.) This is actually my favorite in the collection. I have a million greens but I can't think of one I own that is like this one.

I did 1 coat of Seven Figure Rich - you read that right ONE COAT. It had a great smooth application and a great dry time. This polish is perfection to me.

Oh Stop Hating is one of those pretty-ugly nail polish colors.  The website describes this as a gold creme shade, which I guess I can see! But to me it reminded me of split pea soup haha. A very unique color, it's hard for me to hate it haha

I did 2 coats of Oh Stop Hating. I didn't have any issues with applications or dry time with this polish.

Accept It And Move On is a deep, dark chocolate syrup colored creme polish. It was hard to photograph this one without making it look black lol but it is a really rich dark brown.

I did 2 coats of Accept It And Move On. The application and dry time was identical to Oh Stop Hating. The application was without any problems and the dry time was great.

Opposite Of White is one of those perfect black creme polishes. I think this may be one of my favorite black polishes to date! (BTW does anyone hate cleaning up black polish? Ugh, I apologize).

I did 1 coat Opposite Of White, another 1 coater! I didn't have any issues with application. It wasn't thick or difficult, the application was smooth. The dry time was also perfect :]

  2. He Was Rusty Around the Edges is beautiful! I'm finding myself more and more drawn to oranges, especially burnt/rusty oranges like that. :)
