Trio of Shades from the Journey & Co GRL PWR Collection

Hello, dear readers, and happy Fri-yay! I don't have anything in particular planned this weekend, but I'm looking forward to some quality time with my guys. After having four days with them last weekend, it's been so quiet around the house this week. Now on to today's post!

While attending The Makeup Show in New York earlier this month, one of my stops was at the Journey & Co booth. This indie nail polish line was launched in March by 8 year old creative Journey Phillips. Her dreams started when she started creating polishes to share with friends while in kindergarten. Each polish came with a personalized inspirational note to bring about inclusivity and inspire young girls. The brand launched with a seven piece collection, called the GRL PWR Collection. I purchased three of them while at the show and wanted to share them with you today. Let's check them out!

Purple Slay

You Are Strong. #BeBrave

Purple Slay is a vibrant, warm toned purple creme nail polish that is sure to be a hit this summer. I can be a little hit or miss with purple shades, but this one stole my heart and is perfection for the warm summer months ahead! I have it shown here with two coats.

Pink Fairytale

You Are Magic. #BeKind

Pink Fairydust is a rich magenta pink polish that is loaded up with blue reflecting shimmers. It is the shade that grabbed my attention when I first stopped by the booth and for good reason- the blue shimmer in this is incredible! I used two coats to reach opacity for these photos.


You Are Worthy. #BeGreat

Halographic is just what you would expect: it is a silvery holographic sparkling beauty! This is a polish than can be used as a topper or on its own to reach opacity. I have it here by itself with two coats. The two coats actually has quite nice coverage although the camera is really good at picking out the spots that peek through. I actually quite like it like this, but you can opt to add in a third coat for even more coverage.

I am so glad that I picked up these beauties at the show! It is an uplifting collection no matter what your age and the colours are positively gorgeous!

Journey & Co has recently launch the Dream On Cloud 9 Summer Collection, a new five-piece collection. I'm really looking forward to watching the brand grow!

Have you checked out Journey & Co's nail polishes? Which shades or finishes are your favorites? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day and enjoy the weekend!
