You Polish Ice Cream Polishes Swatches and Review

Press Sample

Good afternoon, dear readers!  I have the remaining polishes from You Polish's scented ice cream collection to share with you today.  To see the other polishes from the collection, check out my previous post here.  I used three coats of polish for all of the following swatches and followed up with a coat of HK Girl top coat.  Even with the top coat, these polishes all smelled absolutely divine!  The formula was a little on the thinner side, so you do need to beware of flooding your cuticles.  That being said, the thinner formula made the application, and more importantly the glitter dispersion, a dream to work with, and I was very happy with these!  Let's move on to the swatches!

Strawberry Jubilee
Strawberry Jubilee is definitely one of my favorites from the collection.  I love the smooth creaminess of the base and the red shards and square glitters interspersed throughout this polish!  I love fruity smells, and strawberry is one of my favorite scents.  

Cookies & Creaminess
I think I'm one of the few people that never really jumped on the white-based polish bandwagon, but the simplicity of the black glitters against the white base appeals to me.  The diamond glitters makes Cookies and Creaminess awesome!

Choco-Mint Chip
This is another one of my favorites from the collection!  I generally shy away from mint coloured polishes as they tend to look ghastly with my skin tone, but I love that the monotony of the shade is broken up with loads of black glitters!  Choco-mint chip is also one of my favorite flavors of ice cream, and this polish brought back many fond memories of going to an ice cream shop with friends in high school.

Peach Sundae
Out of all the polishes from this collection, Peach Sundae was my least favorite.  It applied perfectly, and I love the smell of peaches, but the colour combination didn't win me over.  I'm not sure if the peach base was too peach for my liking or if the yellow shards were too yellow.  Whatever the case may be, I can chalk it up to personal preference and still say I was happy with the formula.

Links and Additional Information
These and other polishes can be purchased by visiting the You Polish Etsy shop.  If you love the polishes but don't like scented polishes, leave a note during checkout and request that Lauren leave them unscented for you.
