Promise Polish Swatches and Review

*Polish Sent to Me for Review

Hey guys!

Sorry it takes me a while to do reviews, I am slow and don't like to rush the entire thing, plus I was busy with life again.

Finally I got to swatch these cute polishes from the brand Promise Polish. These polishes are made by a lovely single mom out of her home in Pineville, West Virginia. Here is what she has to say on her brand according to her Etsy:

"I''m a nail polish junkie. There is no hiding it. I never thought about making polish on a large scale, just a few for my own enjoyment.
When the polishes that I made started getting noticed by friends, they encouraged me to start making them so other people might enjoy them as well.
I asked God to guide me in this decision.
His answer to me was clear. Go for it...but give back!
Great! Two things I love! And the approval of the One I love the most.
A percentage of the profits are given to two organizations: which assists victims of domestic and sexual violence, they also work at trying to prevent these crimes.
The other is Hand of Hope run by Joyce Meyer Ministries. This organization does so much to help people all over the world, including families here at home. From education to medical treatment and so on.

I work out of my home, by myself. Each polish is hand mixed individually and tested on me over the course of two to three days. I decide on how well it wears and do my best to accurately describe the performance of the product.

I'm a busy girl. Aside from taking care of my own home and family, I also clean other peoples homes, so my hands are constantly wet on covered in cleaning products. (I'm not big on wearing gloves.) We also raise a big garden so dirt and weeds are my friends. So the polish gets a real work out. If it doesn't pass the test it does not get listed."

I have four lovely ones up to show you guys! Here is a preview:

The first one that I have up to show you is called Such A Pretty Girl. This one is a nice super light lilac polish with shimmer. The shimmer was hard to capture on camera, but you can see it in person. I did three coats by itself. No problems with application on this one.

 Next up, this one is called Magic Hour. This is a black scattered holo polish. I did three coats by itself. I love the color, but the application wasn't the best. It was patchy and it kinda got bumpy as I tried to fix it, hence my middle finger. If I didn't try to fix it, it would probably look a little better.

Third up, this one is my favorite of the four that I have to show you. This one is called Jamaican Vacation. As per Promise Polish's Etsy, the polish is described as "Jamaican Vacation shifts from dark blue to green with a gold and aqua accent. In the right light at the right angle you may catch a hit of purple. It is very sparkly." I did three coats by itself instead of over another color, just so everyone could see the colors and flakes better. Application was great.

Last up, this one was the most difficult to photograph, because I had to act fast. This one is called Misty Skies Moon Rise, and this is a thermal. It shifts from super light grey to dark grey. I did three coats by itself. My middle finger shows the color as it is under hot water or hot heat, and the dark grey on the rest of my fingers is in the cold. I had to do more work to get the hot color to show, it was cold enough here that the dark grey stayed that way. I rushed from the faucet to run the one finger under hot water, and then back to my camera to make sure the effect didn't wear off too fast. My hand position on this one is a little off because of it. Application on this one was perfect.

So all in all, I would definitely recommend these polishes. A nice variety of colors and textures and finishes. Even the one I had trouble with, Magic Hour, I would suggest trying out. I am just not the best with application so you may have better results than myself.

Promise Polish can be purchased on her Etsy page, Her polishes range in price from $4-$5.50 for those she has on sale, and $5-$7 for those that are regular priced.

Well, that's all I have for you guys for now. I hope you enjoyed my post and sorry for the wait! I'll talk to you all later, bye!
