Pretty & Polished - Jawbreaker

Good morning!

Today I have a very special polish to show you - it's Pretty and Polished Jawbreaker. I fell in love with this polish as soon as I saw the first swatch of it and when I finally got a bottle of my own, it definitely didn't let me down.

Jawbreaker is a milky white jelly base with just the right amount of multi-color, multi-sized and multi-shaped glitters mixed throughout. The polish creates a "glitter sandwich" manicure all on its own.

For anyone who doesn't know, a glitter sandwich is when you apply a coat or two of a sheer jelly polish, then a layer of glitter and then another layer of the jelly polish, essentially sandwiching the glitter between the layers of the jelly polish. For some examples, check out this post by Rebecca over at Goose's Glitter.

Well, forget all that layering because with Jawbreaker, you've already got yourself a glitter sandwich!

The formula is good and it applies really easily. As well, it's self-leveling, which is always good, especially when it comes to jelly-type polishes. My swatch is 2 coats but it could have used 1 more.

I'm totally head over heels for this polish and I actually think that this has just skyrocketed right into my top 10 all-time favourite polishes! I'm definitely going to need to get myself a full-sized bottle of it.

Pretty and Polished polishes can be bought through Chelsea's Etsy shop. Jawbreaker is sold out right now but Chelsea is always updating her stock, so keep checking.


  1. This is so cool, it really does look like one of those jawbreakers that you can get out of a candy machine. I have been loving all these indy brands that have been coming out lately, I haven't tried any from pretty and polished yet but I hope to very soon! And this one is definitely at the top of the list!

  2. This is really cool. I keep seeing this and thinking "oh I don't need that" but the more I see it, the more I think i do need it!

  3. Yes, it does look like a Jawbreaker! Very pretty polish :)

  4. omg..i need to get a polish that gives me that effect it
    and this one is amazing!

  5. Awww, thanks for the linkies! The same thing happened to me: I bought a mini bottle at first and fell so much in love with it that I HAD to have a full sized bottle! :o)

  6. Can't wait for this to arrive- I ordered it and am so looking forward to trying it!

  7. Loving these sparser confetti glitters in a clear to white base over white - and sometimes making a white sandwich out of them.

  8. love your blog! it's such a pity we don't have the polish selection that you have here in Ireland :( I'd love to experiment with all these fab polishes!
