Pretty & Polished - "Save the Dauphine" Collection

Hi all!!! I know it's been a while since I have posted but you know how things are around the holidays! So hectic!!First my husband was sick on Christmas and I have been battling a head cold ever since. Ugh. Anyhow, I recently had a chance to review a new collection from Chels over at Pretty & Polished. This is scheduled to be released for sale mid-January. It's called the "Save The Dauphine" (aka Marie Antoniette) collection. There are 4 polishes in the collection:

First up I have Hameau which was the name of a cottage built for Marie Antoinette, and this polish was meant to resemble the cottage and the flowers surrounding it. This is a milky based polish with green and blueish-purple glitters. Gorgeous! This is 3 coats of Hameau with a top coat of Seche.

Application was flawless. No streaks or unevenness. This one is probably my favorite of the collection!

Next we have Let Them Eat Cake which is another milky based polish. Let Them Eat Cake is the rumored comment said by Marie Antoinette during a bread shortage in 1775 and 1788. And this polish sure resembles yummy cake! This polish has lots of fun glitters in it, yellow, orange, pink and white. Delicious! This was 3 coats with a top coat of Seche.

Gosh I have such a weakness for white based polishes. Love this one too! Once again, application was perfectly smooth. No fishing for glitter.

Third we have Louis Louis which was made to represent King Louis XVI of France. This is a gorgeous gold polish with lots of red and blue glitter. Very royal looking. This is 2 coats with a Seche top coat.

No fishing for glitter here either. Smooth application and was pretty opaque in just 2 coats!

Last up is The Diamond Necklace Affair. The Diamond Necklace Affair was an incident that placed blame on Marie Antoinette in a crime against the Crown Jewelers.  This one is just sooooooooo pretty in the bottle. I think this polish is best as a layering polish, although you could wear it alone. I couldn't decide what it would look the best over so I went with 4 different polishes. 
Sinful Colors Snow Me White, Revlon Minted, China Glaze Towel Boy Toy, and China Glaze Blue Year's Eve. And of course, it looked good over all of them! This was one coat of The Diamond Necklace Affair over 2 coats of each base and topped with Seche.

So pretty and iridescent!!! I can't even choose which color I like it over the best!

These polishes will be out January 16 in The Pretty & Polished Store. Also go check out her facebook page HERE!
