Candied Pillow by BG Cosmetics: Swatch and Review

Indie alert! Today's polish is from brand new indie, BG Cosmetics. BG, if you're not in the know, stands for Bitch Glitz. Love it! 

The first Bitch Glitz polish in the lineup is Candied Pillow. Ketlyn describes it as: "an opaque metallic lavender, speckled with silver, blue, pink and purple holographic glitter that sparkles and radiates color and vibrancy in the sunlight. All polishes are 3 Free and 15 ml bottles. They are all made with diamond dust for added chip resistance and longevity."

The first two photos show two coats of Candied Pillow alone, topped with Seche Vite. All photos are taken under Ott Lite. 

To be honest, this was not my favorite way to wear this polish. It reached opacity with no problem at all, but it was a bit frosty for my taste.

The next two photos show one coat of Candied Pillow layered over Sinful Colors Cool Grey, also topped with Seche Vite. 

Now this combo, I LOVE. The glitter was so much more captivating in one coat! Plus, it finished more "foil-y" than "frosty" over the grey. You'll want to enlarge that last photo- it's a stunner!

Candied Pillow applied very easily, and was surprisingly free of brush strokes. I noticed some slight, reflective-only curling in ONE of the medium blue glitters. As it was only one, it may have been a fluke, and it did lay completely flat on the nail. This polish did become completely opaque in two coats, but can be layered at one. I've never heard of an indie line adding diamond dust to their polish, which I think is a very neat addition! I can't comment as to wear time, as I only wore it one day. 

Bitch Glitz polishes, as well as a few eyeshadows, can be purchased on Etsy. Full sized polishes run $10, while four piece collections can be purchased for $35- great deal if you want the whole set! Be sure to like Bitch Glitz on Facebook as well!

*This polish was sent to me for an honest review.
