Mi Amor Polish - Swatches & Review

Happy Monday! Today I have some swatches to share with you from an indie polish maker, Mi Amor Polish. If the name doesn't explain it enough, Mi Amor Polish was started by Courtney out of her love of nail polish, glitter, and her simple love of creating something beautiful. I've got several of her glitter toppers to share, so lets dig in!
Strawberry Shortcake
 Strawberry Shortcake is a really stunning glitter topper packed with neon orange and pink square and hex glitters. The application was great - no fishing at all - and wasn't too thick. Shown is 1 coat over China Glaze's Liquid Leather. I'm seriously in LOVE with this color combo. I love the contrast between the black and neon glitter. 
Campfire is a really pretty glitter topper with brown, copper and white glitters in varying sized hex glitters. I've shown it paired over OPI's My Vampire is Buff and I felt like I had toasted marshmallows on my fingers! It just had a really cozy feel to it. The application was once again great with not fishing. Shown is 2 coats. 
Green and Gold
Green and gold is just that; green and gold hex and square glitter! It's another great topper that seems really versatile. My initial thought for this topper was obviously over a green of some sort - in this case, China Glaze's Def Defying. I was really curious about the versatility of this one though so I also tried it with China Glaze's Seduce Me and was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. While this will be a great St. Paddy's day polish, it's definitely something that can be worn year round.

Cosmic Rainbow
Cosmic Rainbow is a really fun glitter topper consisting of, well, the rainbow. There are small mini circle glitters in all the colors of the rainbow and they are balanced out with some the black square and round glitters. This was another easy application and I actually encountered the issue of too much glitter on my brush (which is a much better problem to have than no glitter!). This was easily managed though. Shown is 1-2 coats over China Glaze's Tart-y for the Party and White on White.

Pride is another rainbow glitter topper that I think has potential to be worn by itself. This consists of tons of square, hex and circle glitter and I had absolutely no problems getting this glitter out. This is ONE coat over liquid leather. I can't stress enough that these polishes are packed with glitter. I love it. 
Hot Rod
I think this was my favorite color combo of all the polishes I was sent. Hot Rod has black, orange and white hex and square glitters along with white and black bar glitter. I was briefly stumped about how to pair this glitter topper but realized this was a perfect time to do one of my favorite color palettes; orange and teal. Shown is 1-2 coats over China Glaze's Kinetic Candy.

I really enjoyed all of these glitter toppers. They're different from pretty much everything I have and they all had great formulas that were easy to work with. They are all packed with glitter so you do not have to worry about fishing. I think any of these would be a great addition for anyone who loves glitter toppers (or nail polish!). 

What do you think of these? Do you have a favorite?
