The Polish Bar: Oceanside & Shirley

 Today I've got two more polishes from The Polish Bar to show you! If you missed the first part, go check it out.

 Oceanside is my favourite of the bunch.  It's a mix of matte glitter in different shapes and sizes and shades of blue and green.  I layered one coat of Oceanside over a subtle gradient of SH Xtreme Wear Mint Sorbet and NYX Matte Teal.  The gradient was more noticeable in person, and this combination was absolutely gorgeous.  Application on this one was pretty good, but I did go back and place a few of the larger pieces afterwards to fill in the spaces.  Two coats of Seche Vite, voila!

Last is Shirley, which is a mix of pink and black glitter in a clear base.  I layered one coat of Shirley over two coats of Zoya Dove.  The application on this one was super easy just like Neon Lights and Dreams which I showed the other day.  One coat of Seche Vite.  

Bottle shots for some matte glittery goodness: 

As I mentioned in the last post, I've been told by Janice that the bottles I have were still "prototypes" and that the versions she is selling in her shop are more densely packed with glitter so you'll get more coverage.  

Both of these polishes are from her Color Play collection which is fully composed of matte glitters, so obviously I love them all!  You can get polishes from The Polish Bar on Etsy here.  I expect this brand to grow pretty quickly, so be sure to go grab yourself some of these pretties during her next restock!
