Turtle Tootsie Polishes Grease-inspired Fall Collection Swatch and Review Part 1

Greetings and Nailutations,

*Press sample*
Today I am sharing the first half of the 10 piece Turtle Tootsie Polishes Grease-inspired Fall Collection.  This collection releases August 27th at 8pm Eastern.  This collection puts to mind many iconic moments in the movie and Chrissy (the owner of Turtle Tootsie Polishes) paired those moments with perfect colors and finishes.  I'm splitting this post into 2 parts and this first part will be work appropriate colors (more neutrals/softer colors) and the 2nd part will be bright fun colors.

Now let's get to the swatches! (Picture heavy post)
Photos shown in filtered light and LED light.

First up is Grease Lightning, which is a light grey (or gray if you prefer) creme with silver small holographic hexes as well as silver holographic micro glitter.  Grease Lightning went on smoothly and was opaque in 2 coats.  Photos show topped with shiny top coat (1st, 2nd and 3rd photos) and matte top coat (4th, 5th and 6th photos).

Next is If You Can't Be An Athlete, Be An Athletic Supporter.  The name makes me giggle a bit every time I read it.  This gorgeous stunner is a light peachy almost tan holographic polish with color shifting flakies.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.

Then there is Pink Ladies, which of course is a light pink holographic polish with bright pink flakies. This is such a pretty color, I have been wearing it the last 5 days.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.

Makin' Fun Of Me, Riz? is a nude holo with purple shimmer and multi-colored flakies.  The purple shimmer is evident in the filtered light macro.  This polish is really complex and I didn't expect it to be so soft and work appropriate.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.

The last polish I will be sharing in this post is Beauty School Drop Out.  Beauty School Drop Out is a pink holographic polish with golden flakies.  Out of all 10, this one had a slightly different formula consistency due to the great number of flakies, but it applied just as easy as the others.

Shiny Top Coat: Glisten and Glow HK Girl Top Coat
Matte Top Coat: Heather's Hues Heart of the Matter

Loves: Who doesn't love the movie Grease?  She paired the colors perfectly with the names and I can't wait to show you the 2nd half of the collection.  For this 5, my favorite is If You Can't Be An Athlete, Be An Athletic Supporter - not only for the name, but the finish is amazing!

Wishes: Chrissy's eye for finish paired with color combination is amazing.  I really hope she does more iconic movie collections.  (16 Candles?  The Breakfast Cub?)

  1. I adore all the shades from this collection and hope it sticks around for awhile since I can't pick them up for awhile!

  2. Athlete is also my absolute favorite. These are gorgeous!

  3. Grease Lightning is such a delicate gray!

  4. So cute. Love the inspiration for each, as well.

  5. I'm really drawn to the color combo of Next is If You Can't Be An Athlete, Be An Athletic Supporter. That's a neat one!

  6. I'm waiting for some of these polishes to land in my mailbox. Pink Ladies will be perfect for our United In Pink theme week in October.
