Polishaus - Swatches & Review

Hello, all! I'm sorry I've been a bit MIA the past few days. I've been busy with family activities, driving, and eating too much. I'm going to have a few major swatch posts to share with you all today since all of these lovely indie makers are having black friday sales and I figure it'll be nice to see some of their product. 

I'm starting off with some FABULOUS polishes from PolisHaus Lacquer. I was so pleasantly surprised by these polishes. I had heard of PolisHaus and had been following her on Instagram for awhile but had yet to try these so I was so excited to get to review them. 3 of these are glow in the dark as well :)
Argentine is a steel grey creme (crelly-ish) with tons of holo dust glitter. There are larger hex and square glitters in black, silver, red/magenta and orange. This was one of my favorites from the collection - really unique combination of colors and like nothing else I own. Shown is 2 coats.
A vibrant (yet greyed out?!) lavender crelly with some holo dust, plenty of pink, red, lavender and silver glitters in hex and square shapes. I loved the variety yet cohesiveness of these glitters together. This one is also one of the glow in the dark looks and had a strong and unique glow. I liked that the glow showed around the glitter and created some interest that way. Shown is 2-3 coats. 

I LOVED Spectrum. A cornflower blue crelly, this sports black and silver micro glitter, medium purple hex, and larger square and hex silver glitter. Although this was a vibrant blue, it still has a fall feel to me. This is another glow in the dark polish and has a nice blue glow to it. Shown is 2 coats. 

This is a milky crelly with TONS of colorful glitter. For some reason, it almost looked grey to me when it was in the bottle, but once it was on my fingers you could really see the difference. I feel like this is a polish that will look slightly different on varying skin tones. I think the base seemed more green with my skin tone, but looking at some other swatches it looks almost yellow. Just be aware with this one that it might look different with your skin tone. Shown is 2 coats, though if you're not a fan of your nail edge showing through your polish, you'll need at least 3 coats. This was another glow in the dark and glowed the most of all the GITDs from this collection. 

Overall, I really liked this collection. The formula was spot on and super easy to work with, just make sure to use several thin coats in order to build the color up without making a squishy, clumpy mess on your fingers. Even though these are full of glitter, they are incredibly easy to apply and work with for any level of nail painter.

Be sure to check out PolisHaus' Instagram to find out the Black Friday deals going on as well and you can purchase any of these for $8/bottle on the PolisHaus website. 

What do you think of these?

Happy Polishing! :)
