Pretty and Polished Beach Bum

OMG I cant believe that i have now passed the 200 follower mark, how amazing are you guys!? Thank you all so much for your support and love. If you haven't already don't forget to enter my 100 follower giveaway :-)

Today has been super hot and sunny in the UK (which is a rare occurrence!) and i thought it would be fitting to have something summery for today's post. I have chosen to showcase Pretty and Polished Beach Bum. I received this a few weeks ago and it has sat in my untrieds for a while but i now see that this polish doesn't get the love it deserves.

Beach Bum is made up of tiny matte blue glitter, sprinkled with small green and blue hex glitter, small blue square glitter and a smattering of large green hex glitter suspended in a clear base. In my honest opinion i wasn't enamoured with the larger glitter so for this mani i left them out (its easy enough to drop them off the brush). I chose to layer this polish over a crisp white creme base to really show off the glitters. Application was a dream with no bald spots and nice even spacing of the glitter.

The swatches show one coat of Beach Bum over a pure white base topped off with one coat of Gelous and one coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.

It looks like sprinkles on a cupcake

Obligatory bottle shot!

See the squares :-)
