Hey everybody! Yes, it's me. Hugs and kisses all around!
Nothing brings one out of dormancy quite like a new collection from a favorite brand. The Pretty Jelly Back to School Brights collection is a fabulous array of *this close to neon* scattered/linear holos that is even prettier in person than in photos. The colors are a nod to all those grammar school memories we have...well, to be totally honest, we 70's grammar school kids didn't exactly have neon things yet, but I digress...
All the polishes here dry very quickly to a semi-matte finish. I used top coat on each because, of course, I like to shine. Let's take a look!
First up is a polish so full of yumness that it may very well be caloric: Scented Markers.
Scented Markers were NOT invented in the 1970's. But never mind that...look at this gorgeous purple! I would describe it as mulberry-tinged bright orchid. How's that for specific?
Next we have every kid's favorite thing in the world: Pop Quiz! Ah, I can still remember the sounds of groaning across the classroom...
Pop Quiz is described as coral, but on me it's a gentle apricot. It's a good bit brighter in indirect light. I used three coats of this one to cover up Mr. VaNeLi. I wore this one this week for three days before it finally gave in and chipped.
The last Back to School polish I have is a lovely bright pink called Book Fair. I loved Book Fair time. I bought the coolest ever coloring book once that looked just like those popular adult coloring books around today. I'm such a visionary. :)
Book Fair is the most linear-leaning holo of the three. This hot pink is bright, sparkly and electric.
Be sure to check out the Back to School Brights collection on Etsy for the rest of the collection! I cannot recommend Pretty Jelly enough for consistently good formulas, interesting color choices, and yes - intelligent polish names.
As always, thank you for reading, and have a lovely day! <3
