Pretty & Polished - Peebles

I'm getting so antsy for my nubs to grow out a bit now! I'm done moving and have unpacked just about everything now, so hopefully I can have long nails without breaking them again!

In the meantime, I wanted to wear something cute and girly on my nubs to make me feel better about them. I decided to go with Peebles from Pretty & Polished. Peebles is an amazing pink polish. Normally I don't go for pinks, as I tend to be into blues and greens, but this shade is fantastic. 

Peebles looks a bit more coral in these photos than in real life, but it's pretty close. It's a bright, cheery pink that does look somewhat like a bubblegum pink. It's a bubblegum pink because it's supposed to represent Princess Bubblegum from the cartoon Adventure Time!

You can see Princess Bubblegum above if you're not familiar with her or the show. She's very bright pink with a bit of yellow for her crown. I think Peebles is a good representation of her since it's mostly pink with a bit of yellow added in!

As you can see, it's a bit sheer. Peebles in a pinkish jelly base with medium sized hex glitter, and some microglitter to fill in. The hexes are mostly white and yellow. There is also a bit of bluish shimmer to this polish if you look carefully in the light. 

Since Peebles is a jelly and is pretty sheer, I applied two generous coats of it for these photos with a coat of Seche Vite on top. It turned pretty opaque easily, and either two thick coats or three thin coats can achieve this look. I'm really loving this pinkish jelly! 

While I don't think Peebles is being sold anymore, Pretty & Polished still has several other Adventure Time themed polishes for sale on her website! Pretty & Polished also still keeps her Esty shop stocked. Most polishes are $9.00 for a full size bottle.
