le polish: Back to School Trio Swatches and Review

Press Sample

Good morning, dear readers, and happy Monday! I hope you all enjoyed the weekend and your week is off to a wonderful start! It was a busy weekend around here from spending quality time with my boys to working on things for the blog. I've got a lot of posts coming up! Now on to today's blog post!

It's that time of year when the carefree days of summer have come to an end and the new school year has begun. To kick off the new school ear, le polish is releasing the Back to School trio inspired by Billy Madison. Of course the inspiration isn't exactly the most wholesome and innocent, but it's something for us adults to enjoy! Let's check it out!

The Back to School trio consists of three glitter crellies.

Stop Looking at Me Swan
Three coats plus top coat

 A white crelly with black, yellow, and gold glitters and flakes. "Shampoo is better, I go on first and clean the hair. Conditioner is better, I leave the hair silky and smooth. Stop Looking at me Swan!"

While I don't wear white crellies often, I am digging this one. The colour palette is simple, and I really enjoy the pops of yellow against the white and black. The application was a dream in three thin coats. While you could go with fewer thicker coats, I find glitter crellies achieve the best depth with thin but more coats. The glitters spread nicely across my nails and the final look is clean and beautiful!

Call Me Miles Davis
Three coats plus top coat

A raspberry crelly with black, white, pink, and gold glitters. "If peeing your pants is cool, Call Me Miles Davis!"

Call Me Miles Davis is the perfect shade for the upcoming fall season! The raspberry base is the perfect balance of colour with dark moodiness that I always think of with the cooler days, and the glitter combination suits it nicely. The formula was also easy to work with and application a breeze with three thin coats.

Nudie Magazine Day

A nude crelly with aqua, blue, and white glitters and aqua shimmer. "What day is it? Nudie Magazine Day, Nudie Magazine Day, Nudie Magazine Day!"

I am loving the aqua and blue glitters against the nude base shade! It adds a little something to make your nails more interesting without overpowering the base. I have no issues to report with this beauty either as it applied perfectly for me as well!

The Back to School Collection will be available for purchase this Friday, August 26th at noon EDT on the le polish website located here. Polishes will be available in both full size and mini bottles; full size will retail at $10 each and mini bottles at $6 each.

You can follow le polish on social media on FacebookInstagram, and Pinterest to see details on current and upcoming releases. You can also join the le polish Facebook fan group here for early sneak peeks, games, and group customs.

What is your favorite shade from this trio? Are you glad to see the school year start? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!


  1. These are all pretty and unique! I haven't tried le polish yet, but I'm really liking Stop Looking at Me Swan. And the color combo of Nudie Magazine Day is very unique; I don't think I've seen very many polishes like that!

  2. I actually love all three because they're different color combos from anything I already own. I need to pay more attention to Le Polish as I'm impressed by this collection

  3. These are so pretty and unique! I particularly love nudes with a little extra glitter or something.
