Polish Yer Hooves Stormy and Rusty Nails Swatches & Review

Hello readers!
Today I have two polishes from a new to me brand, Polish Yer Hooves, to show you.  I love the adorable cow on the labels and the cow print on the brush handle helps differentiate it from other brands.  Let's get to the polishes!


Story features a frosty periwinkle base with a strong violet shimmer.  I really love this colour.  It has an ethereal look about it.  Unfortunately, I didn't love the formula.  I found it quite thick and as a result somewhat finicky to work with.  Though it became opaque in two coats I would have much preferred a thinner formula that took three coats to reach opacity.  The results was still very pretty though and I got great wear time from it.  Three days in I had no noticeable wear.  Photos show two coats of Stormy with one coat of HK Girl top coat in natural lighting.

Rusty Nails

Rusty Nails features a metallic burnt orange base with a mix of gold hex and bar glitters.  The formula on this one was quite nice.  I had no issues with application and the glitter was evenly distributed.  It was well pigmented and was opaque after two coats.  Pictures show two coats of Rusty Nails with one coat of HK Girl top coat in natural lighting.


Overall I was happy with these polishes.  I think I'll add a bit of thinner to Stormy before I use it again but that's an easy fix.  I'm not really an orange polish person and bar glitters just don't do it for me so Rusty Nails just isn't for me.  That's just because of the colours though.  If you are an orange polish person this has a great well pigmented formula.  You can find Polish Yer Hooves on

Happy polishing,

  1. Aww, sorry you didn't care for Rusty Nails. :( I hadn't thought of it as an orange polish, but I guess the rust color is kinda orangie! I've never been a fan of bar glitter either, but I like this glitter that only had a minimal amount! I hope they wore well though! :) <3

    1. It's not a bad polish, it just doesn't fit my style. Anything in the orange-copper-rust colour group just clash with my skin tone. I'll be including it in an upcoming giveaway to make sure it goes to a loving home :).
