Paint Box Polish Sweets and Treats Collection (Partial) and Cuticle Oil - Swatches and Review

Press Sample

Happy Sunday! It has been way too long since I've been around here and I am going to try to fix that! Today I have part of the Sweets and Treats Collection from Paint Box Polish to show you, along with a review of her cuticle oil!

Post continued after the jump!



The Sweets and Treats Collection is another Harry Potter inspired collection from Paint Box Polish! I  love Harry Potter and I love that Pam gets inspiration from so many unexpected sources within the HP universe! All of the polishes in this collection are named for treats that can be found at Honeydukes Sweet Shop or from the trolley on Hogwarts Express!


Paint Box Polish is now using a 5-Free base and it is fantastic! The formula on both of these polishes was wonderful. Sugar Spun Quills could easily be a one-coater (I did use two however because I'm a serial two-coater) and Acid Pops was very close to a one-coater as well! No issues whatsoever. I used 2 coats and one coat of top coat for all photos.

----------------------------

Sugar Spun Quills is a medium red loaded with pink and violet (and maybe blue?) shimmer/micro-flakes. This one is so bright and sometimes the shimmer is so prominent is looks like a hot pink/red. Love it!

Acid Pops is is super bright green (brighter than it appears in my photos) with blue shimmer/micro-flakes. Such a great, fun combo of colors!

And now for my thoughts on the cuticle that Paint Box Polish recently released!



This has become one of my favorite cuticle products ever! Pam offers two different varieties - Apricot and Jojoba Oil or Almond and Jojoba Oil. Each one comes with 3 scent options - Unscented, Lavender Blend or Citrus Blend. I have the Apricot and Jojoba Oil in the Citrus Blend. Many scents (well most scents) bother me but this one is very light and refreshing and doesn't bother me at all. The oil itself is very moisturizing but not greasy and I love that it has the rollerball applicator so I can use it anywhere without a mess! I highly recommend adding one of these onto your polish order, you won't regret it!

What do you think? Which ones will you be grabbing? I love this collection and am going to be purchasing the other two! They are all such fun shades!
