However, there ARE things about warmer months that bring a smile to my face, such as homeade ice cream...store bought ice cream...ice cream cones. I like ice cream a lot...it's one of my indulgences. What an awesome segue! :) Today's post is the absolutely beautiful new Summer Indulgences Collection by Pretty Jelly. Lovely Miss Liz says about her charming creations: "Whether it's chasing down your favorite bands at music festivals, sipping your favorite drinks while reading a book, or taking a nap among the flowers - this summer take a moment to indulge in your favorite things."

First up, we have Daydream, a white base with green, yellow, and neon pink glitters. I used 3 coats for the pics over China Glaze Princess Grace, which, I discovered, is pretty much the worst polish ever invented. Daydream still looks lovely over it though...very soft and feminine. :)
Festival is a really fun glitter topper filled with neon pink, blue, green, yellow and white glitter. There are also green and white stars and small blue bars. This is an excellent glitter that behaves very well on the nail. :) I layered 2 coats over OPI You're Such a Budapest to get the partaaaaaay started.
Electric Limeade is a light yellow creme base with neon green and neon blue glitter. And this limeade is electric because of the holographic glitter! Just look at that delicious sparkle! :) You could use 3 coats on its own, but I used 4 for the photos. Mmmmmm! I'll take another glass, please!
UGH!! How pretty is this one?? This beautiful glitter topper is Wildflowers, a mix of pale purple, pink, blue, yellow, grey glitters. And the pink is CIRCLE glitter! This is 2 coats of Wildflowers over L'Oreal Club Prive, but you could even layer this one over a sausage and cheese biscuit and it would look great.
And now for the pièce de résistance: Melon Sangria! I know you all just *love* all my food references...so let's say it together: FRUIT SALAD!! Melon Sangria is a coral jelly packed with large white, green, yellow, orange, and pink hex glitters. I layered 2 coats over OPI Suzi's Hungary Again!...I really don't know why it looks patchy in the pics, because it didn't in the least in real life. It's pretty squishtastic. And so awesome that it wins the coveted ring shot:
|Now THAT'S some Pretty Jelly.|
What do you guys think? :) All 5 of these polishes are crazy gorgeous and behave so nicely. Application is great and the dry time is very fast. The Summer Indulgences Collection is already making me feel better about the quickly approaching season. That and ice cream.
You can purchase the Summer Indulgences Collection and other Pretty Jelly polishes on Etsy!
Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely Monday! :)
