Dream Polish February Polish Pick Up Contributions

Greetings and Nailutations,

*Press Sample*
Polish Pick Up pre-order is just around the corner!  As a reminder - Polish Pick Up is a monthly themed collaboration event.  Seventy+ indie brands ( polish, wax, nail care, jewelry made from polish) participate and create an item (or items) inspired by the theme and this month it is sugary sweets!  Today I'll be sharing the 2 items that Dream Polish (Vanessa) will be contributing!  She created a scented top coat and cuticle oil both in the scent of Cherry Berry Taffy!

Let's get to the review!

First I'll share some of the maker details:

Polish/product name: Gem Glam Top Coat (15mL) & Gem Glow Cuticle Oil (10mL roll on)
Inspiration: Cherry Berry Taffy
Description: Reminiscent of a summer visit to the shore, this scent brings back memories of sweet, melt-in-your-mouth taffy.
Top Notes: Strawberry, Raspberry, Banana
Middle Notes: Bing Cherry, Sugar, Wild Berry
Base Notes: Creamy Vanilla Taffy 
Top Coat: Ethyl Acetate, Butyl Acetate, Cellulose Acetate Butyrate, Nitrocellulose, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Adipic Acid, Neopentyl Glycol, Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Isopropyl Alcohol, Acrylates Copolymer,PEG-8 / SMDI Copolymer, Benzophenone-1, Etocrylene. *May contain: Fragrance 
Cuticle Oil: Grape Seed Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Moroccan Argan Oil, Hemp Oil, Organic Rose Hip Seed Oil, Avocado Oil, Vitamin E Oil. *May contain: Fragrance 
Price in USD: Gem Glam Top Coat $8.95/Gem Glow Cuticle Oil $8.95
Product cap: 75
Gem Glam Top Coat:  Quick drying - check, scented - check, uniform formula throughout bottle life - check!  I was ecstatic that she re-opened shop because I was scared to use what I did have left in my top coat drawer.  :)  The scent is Cherry Berry Taffy, sweet, fruity with a slight note of pink sugar.  As a top coat, the scent is light and refreshing.  Photos show 1 coat over pink (Bliss Polish - Isla Bonita) and blue (Polish 'M Denim) in both filtered and LED lighting.

The cuticle oil moisturizes and is long lasting.  The scent is stronger on this product as it's not competing with top coat.  The scent lingers on the fingers (haha I just rhymed!) and keeps the skin around the nails moisturized, which is important with the frigid weather.

As you saw above there is a cap for these products, so you will want to be quick!

As a reminder - all Polish Pick Up products can be purchase on their website February 2nd - 5th.  Everything is pre-order and $3 flat rate shipping.  Join their Facebook Group to find out all the details!

  1. This sounds like a delicious fragrance!

  2. I always forget to use a cuticle oil.

  3. I have never heard of a scented topcoat. I want one! And I'm embarrassed to admit that I've never tried a cuticle oil - cream yes, but oil no. the rollerball looks like a great idea

  4. I'm running on little sleep right now, but I think you mean February PP, right?

    I'm intrigued by the scented top coat! I've never used one before!

  5. I need to add cuticle oil in my life!

  6. Everything in this post looks so nice!!

  7. So I love to eat candy but I hate to smell it. Is that weird?! Lol.

  8. I really like that the oil is on a roller ball.

  9. Wait, scented top coat? Whoa, that’s new to me!

  10. Yes much needed items for rough weather .Thanks

  11. Cuticle oil makes so much of a difference and this one sounds amazing!

  12. I really need to get into the habit of using cuticle oil again!

  13. That scent sounds lovely! I really liked the top coat they make, and their oils must be amazing.
