My Indie Polish Summer Camp Blues Review

Provided for review

It's time to learn a little bit more about me. Summer Camp and I were never a thing. I was bullied as a kid. A lot. No matter where I went, I seemed to be a target. I went to a one-day camp once and had such a horrible experience that my mom never enrolled me again. Anyway, I know lots of kids love Summer Camp and it's super important. I also like to think the world we live in now is a lot nicer than the one I grew up in. Tanya of My Indie Polish has created Summer Camp Blues inspired by camp days. Read on for details.

Paint It Pretty Polish Eternal Love Review

Provided for review

New month. New Paint It Pretty Polish Pretty Polish of the Month! April's Limited Edition polish is inspired by the diamond. If you're lucky enough to be born in April, your birthstone is one of the most coveted gemstones of all. Diamonds symbolize eternal love (hence the name of this nail polish). Those who wear diamonds are believed to be blessed with better relationships, balance, clarity, abundance and inner strength.

Paint It Pretty Polish Easter Holographic Collection

Provided for review

Before diving into the latest Paint It Pretty Polish collection I want to take a moment to ask: How are you? Have you taken a moment to breathe today? 

I'm trying my best but the past week has been nothing short of intense. I am working from home which gives me an extra two hours each day now that I'm not commuting. I'm so grateful for that time and I'm using it to walk outside, bake and blog. While it might seem trivial to some, swatching, photographing and blogging offers me some mental space from the difficult realities facing us all. 

Just in time for Easter, Paint It Pretty Polish is releasing a five-piece Easter Holographics Collection. These polishes will be available on April 1, 2020 for $11 CAD each on the Paint It Pretty Polish website. Every single polish was a dream to apply. All photos show two coats plus top coat. I would classify these as pastel holos as each polish features both linear and scattered holographic pigment plus a hint of golden shimmer. Just like spring sunshine!
