Polish Addict Nail Color Jellies Swatch & Review

**Purchased by me**
**Provided for honest review**

I hope you've noticed the new blog design! I finally went and searched etsy for a layout I loved with polish sale money. I love the black and white scheme and of course the polka dots. I hope you like it as much as I do! The only drawback--lost all of my commentluv comments. Fail. I'm really sorry, gals. I will try to reinstall it but I don't think it'll make them all come back :-(
I have also recently made a twitter account. I'm not totally up on the Twitter thing, but I do have Bloglovin' auto-posting my blog links. You can use the sidebar to follow me on your other desired social media or you can click the "About Me" section for the links. Also let me know who you are! You can post on my facebook wall to say hi and link me to your polish world, too.

Today I have a swatch and review of some jellies from Polish Addict Nail Color (affectionately known as PANC). You can click on the photo collage (made with picmonkey) to make the image larger on desktop and mobile. You'll also notice I'm holding a random TC bottle. I have all of these colors in minis and I actually love minis... I just can't pose with minis!

Jelly Belly Remix
Jelly Belly Remix is a yellowed ivory jelly with matte glitters in a rainbow of colors. It reminds me of a circus! I used a first thin coat of Sinful Colors Daisy Daze then two coats of Jelly Belly Remix. My accent nail is Morgan Taylor Hot Hot Tamale and a few colorful studs.
I quickly scraped down the sides and bottom of the bottle and I ended up not needing to fish for any glitters. Nice consistency, too, and applied easily. I wasn't sure about the base color but I ended up loving it on and Daisy Daze is a perfect undie match.

A Mother's Love
A Mother's Love is a blue jelly with assorted pastel satin glitters in various shapes. There is also some satin-looking microshimmer which is my favorite part! For my swatch I used a first thin coat of OPI What's With The Cattitude? (more like "What's With The Formula?") and then two coats of A Mother's Love. For my accent nail I used OPI Pink Friday and did some flowers using Cult Nails Tempest and OPI Oy-Another Polish Joke! I added some yellow pearls for the middle of the flowers, but I fear I made them look like fried eggs :-/
Anyway, this has a nice jelly formula. I like my polish to be opaque so I used the creme coat first. A Mother's Love was on the thicker side so I added a couple drops of thinner and it worked perfectly. I fished a dabbed just a few of the larger glitters. Overall nothing horrible and I love how watery this looks!

'Vanilla Lace 
Vanilla Lace is a nude-ish jelly with rose, gold, white, and holographic glitters. I had been eyeing this one for awhile but just wasn't sure about the base color. I am so glad I ended up purchasing it though because look. how. pretty. Work appropriate, too! I started with two thin coats and ended with a thicker third coat. Accent nail is OPI Kiss Me I'm Brazillian with a heart stud.
Vanilla Lace has a great formula. Applies easily, no pooling, and builds up coverage in just three coats. My biggest criteria for formula is how much clean-up I have to do; for Vanilla Lace and all the jellies today I just did a quick sweep.

Overall Polish Addict Nail Color knows what to do with a jelly. From fun to more sophisticated she has something for everyone! Plus she is amazingly sweet. Which doesn't affect formula but for me it adds points to any brand. have you tried PANC yet? I'll have some more to show you soon!

    1. Thank you! I don't know if I'll be reinstalling commentluv... I'm afraid of losing everything again in the future because the technologies are confusing to me.

  3. I love the new layout! It's simple but very cute. I super love the stationary menu bar at the top. So easy to navigate!

    That last mani is the adorablest.

    1. I fully agree with everything you just said! I was worried about the stationary bar because it confused my mom haha. Also Vanilla Lace was my fav :-)
