Pretty & Polished Lollipops And Gumdrops Swatches & Review

Hello everyone! Today I have a new polish from the Pretty & Polished candy themed collection, Lollipops And Gumdrops.  This polish features a rainbow of large and medium round glitter mixes with lots of white bar glitter in a clear base that's tinted slightly pink. 

These glitters are heavy and sink to the bottom of the bottle so I rested my bottle upside down for a while before applying the polish.  I still found it did take a fair amount of work to actually get the glitter out though.  I also had to close the bottle and turn it upside down again in between each nail.  Also, the dabbing method was needed to get the glitter distributed evenly over my nails.

Photos show one coat of Lollipops And Gumdrops over China Glaze Shower Together in natural sunlight.  I did not use a top coat.  While the bar and circle glitter give a cute lollipop effect, I don't think this is a polish I will be using very often.  It just takes too much work to get a good amount of glitter on your nails.  I also think the glitter:base ratio was a bit low.  To get a reasonable amount of glitter on my nails I ended up with quite a thick layer of the clear base and this meant it took a long time to dry.  Because of the large sinking glitters, this polish is not listed on the Pretty & Polished website.  However, you can still purchase this polish by emailing directly at prettyandpolishedllc@gmail.com.  What do you think of this polish?  How much work are you willing to do to get those glitters on your fingertips?
