Sincerely Polish Review

Karen Jo, the owner and creator of Sincerely Polish, let me purchase some beauties from her shop at a discounted rate for swatching! She has a ton of amazing collections, ranging from neon 80s to song-inspired to the fancy Mademoiselles. Here’s a quick shot of all 4 I chose, and then I’ll show you more of each:


First up, we have Poison Paradise which is part of the Toxic Seduction set inspired by Britney Spears. This polish is inspired by Spears’ nude sparkly bodysuit she wears during the video for Toxic. It’s a light nude jelly/crelly with iridescent, teal, and pink multisized glitter.



It’s a very sheer formula, and you need a lot of coats to make it opaque (about 4-5 coats). But it’s gorgeous! And if you don’t mind some visible nail line, you could get away with fewer coats. My ring finger has a base color of Julep Alexandra, a creme blonde color which matches the base of Poison Paradise well. I’ll probably use that in the future when wearing this polish – I only put 2 coats of PP over.

Swatches: ILNP Charmingly Purple, piCture pOlish Peacock, and Nails Inc Porchester Square

Just a quick post showing off a few swatches I’ve done over the past few months.


First up is this gorgeous purple holo: Charmingly Purple from I Love Nail Polish. It was a part of ILNP’s Spring Collection 2014 and I absolutely love it! Charmingly Purple has a subtle but perfect linear holo and is a fantastic choice for a spring/ summer manicure.


Next up is piCture pOlish’s Peacock. I love this bottle – it sort of quotes Katy Perry’s song and is deviously amusing (“Do you wanna see my… peacock”). I layered it over a simple black (I used Orly’s Liquid Vinyl) and that made the glitter really pop.


This polish has a dark greenish jelly base with teal and purple microglitter and really shows depth. I love it! Here’s another picture to show off it’s perfection:



And last but not least is a polish I’ve had forever but never actually worn. I was going to wear it as a base for some nail art but ended up liking it enough to keep it on by itself. Nails Inc Porchester Square is a really nice neutral that leans toward the mushroom or greyish brown shade.


Professional and pretty, right?

I’ll have some more posts coming up soon with the June Nail Challenge Collaborative!
