Guest Post - The Devil Wears Polish

This is the other post that did not get posted while I was away (angry! >_<)
I hope you all enjoy and thank you so much to the now, Devil Wears Polish , for this post!


Hey peeps! I was excited to have the chance to write a guest post for Alicia, hope you enjoy! I’ve decided to use the opportunity to shamelessly promote my new polish venture! In just a few days Polished Dreams and Life Things blog and social accounts will become The Devil Wears Polish to promote my blog and new polish brand. No exact date, but I am planning to open my Etsy shop in early August and I’d like to show you some of the things that will be available. We shall start off with 2 of my crellies since they are so cute.  I plan to have a crelly trio listed, Get Your Pop Rocks Off will be one of those. Check it out yo…

I like dots if you can tell. Get Your Pop Rocks Off is a 3 coat yellow crelly with big teal and violet holo dots, small teal and light metallic green dots, and neon pink & green micro glitter. Just so I don’t have to repeat myself, all swatches in this post are 3 coats plus top coat. Get Your Pop Rocks Off is adorable. Next up I’ve got Girls Love To Blow…Bubbles. Isn’t that the best name ever? Credit goes out to my polish buddy Markie M aka Puzzle Polish, she also named Get Your Pop Rocks Off btw. Now let’s have a look see at my swatch…

I had to do a pink crelly. I’ve never been fond of the color, but that changed when I swatched Lacey by A Girl Obsessed. I’ve been loving all things pink since then. Girls Love To Blow…Bubbles has neon pink micro glitter mixed into the base, and you know I had to add some dots! We’ve got the same big dots that I used in GYPRO, with a few minor differences. There’s some teal squares and lots of fuchsia dots in 2 sizes, and I substituted pink matte hex for the light green dots. Now…I hope you’re drooling. If not, allow me to show you 2 jellies that will be available soon. First up is Merman Tracks, named by the hubs…

I had a hard time getting the lighting just right for this, but my swatch is dead-on color wise. Big teal holo dots and smaller teal dots float awesomely in a teal jelly base loaded with royal blue shimmer this is one of my favorite creations so far. I only used basecoat so I could demonstrate the colors, but I feel like this will be amazing with some teal or blue undies, maybe even white if you’re adventurous. Now let’s check out my favorite of all…her name is How’s Them Berries?

Obviously, I’ll have this and Merman Track duo sets listed on the shop. I had to make a purplish jelly because I am never quick enough to score Cosmic Forces. I wanted to recreate that look, while adding enough of my own uniqueness that it wouldn’t be considered a dupe. Me thinks me nailed it, and not to toot my own horn but, I love this one! I can’t wait to see how it looks over undies as well.

So there you have it folks, 4 of my yet-to-be released creations. Hope ya likey! I do J The Devil Wears Polish creations will range in price from $8.50-$9 depending on glitters used. I’ll also have a linear holo set, they’ll be available at $10 each or discounted rate for the whole collection. You can follow me on Facebook here for shop news, sneak peeks, and more. Now may I ask your opinions? Do you think I’m on the right track so far? What kind of polish collections would you want to see from me, more jellies and crellies? Feedback is appreciated, thanks for reading!
