Hi guys! TGIF! Tonight I have a new brand on the blog. Honestly, I don't know a ton about Polished for Days, except for that they had a Memorial Day sale and I thought the polishes looked beautiful. I ordered on May 30th and it shipped just a couple days later. Since I didn't know a lot about the company, I ended up buying just 3 polishes to test the waters. Follow me after the break for my opinions...
Polished For Days Effulgent (2 coats)
Ok, I had to look up what effulgent meant because I had no idea. You don't know either? Well, apparently it means radiant. And boy, is Effulgent the polish radiant! It's a shiny gold holographic polish with silver flakes. It's more of a tan gold than a yellow gold. I used direct light to show the holo, so in real life you'll see more of the silver finish and flakes. It had a great formula and only needed 2 coats.
Polished For Days Kitakyusha (2 coats)
I wasn't 100% sure, but Kitakyusha sounded like it would be Japanese. It is, in fact, a Japanese city! I'm not sure how the color is inspired by the city, but it's a dusty holographic polish with tons of silver flakes. This was easily my favorite of the 3. I wore this during the Raleigh Pen Show a couple weeks ago, and I received many compliments from people. I used my light diffuser for this one, so out in the sunlight you will see much more of a holo finish than you see in the pictures. This one applied just like Effulgent and only neeed 2 coats for full opacity.
Polished For Days Santorini (3 coats)
What do you think? I'm a big fan of the colors I picked, and I'll definitely be ordering again. The polishes shown above all retail for $9 each, but generally the prices retail from $8-$11 each. You can find more information on their website, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook pages, respectively.
