GLISTEN & GLOW Experience the Islands collection : Swatches and Review

Hi there, my darlings!! You know, when you swatch pretty regularly, there comes a point when everything seems like it's been done before and it's incredibly rare when I like a full collection. A color here, a color there but a full collection? Very rarely! Even more so, if the collection happens to be all crèmes because I'm admittedly a total holo addict. But when that does happen, I have to admit I get pretty excited and today I'd like to share a collection of crèmes that I'm totally head over heels with--Glisten & Glow's Experience the Islands collection!

This collection consists of 4 amazing crèmes in perfect, vibrant Summer shades. Across the board, I found the formula and application smooth, easy and absolutely wonderful to work with. Jill sure knows how to make some phenomenal crèmes! These babies dry pretty quickly and are very shiny on their own but I always add my HK Girl top coat to bring it all together. The swatches below show just 2 easy coats of each polish by itself, topped with 1 thin coat of Glisten & Glow's HK Girl topcoat to finish the look. I gotta say, these are some must-have shades so let's get right to swatches!

ATV in Aruba is a luscious fuchsia crème. I love the richness and depth of this shade! So perfect for Summer or any season really!

Bungee Jump in the Bahamas is a lovely mint crème. Mints and I are new friends--I never gave them a chance until very recently so this is a much-needed, welcome addition to my stash! Isn't it just gorgeous?!

Parasail in Puerto Rico is a beautiful coral crème. I've mentioned just how much I love corals for the Summer and this one is going to see  A LOT of use this season! I LOVE how flattering it is on my complexion!

Snorkel in St. Thomas is a vibrant turquoise crème. This shade of blue just makes me happy! It's just so bright and fun!

So there you have it, my darlings! Glisten & Glow's Experience the Islands collection will be officially launching Friday, July 15th at 9 pm EST on her site HERE--each full-size, 15 mL bottle will be priced at $7.50. Want the whole 4-piece collection? Grab it for $29 plus the cost of shipping.
