Turtle Tootsie Polish - Galaxy Cocktail Review | July 2017 Polish Pickup | Swatch My Stash

Happy weekend, I'm at one week of having blog posts up again which is making me feel like an effective blogger again. I'm hoping to keep this up but we all know something will happen and I'll get busy or distracted and will fall of for a bit (facts, man). Anyways, I'm almost done with my old round of polishes I've swatched and not posted, which is giving me a lot of good feelings. This is from last July's Polish Pickup, which was drinks/cocktail themed. 

Here's Galaxy Cocktail.


Galaxy Cocktail is a blurple holographic with pink shimmer and blue and purple chameleon flakies.

Glossy nail macro.


I'm in love with this shimmer. The flakies are a bit more pronounced than I remember being in swatches (and a bit more glitter-looking) but it's nothing that causes me any concern.


You can really see the shimmer here, it's amazing. I'm also noticing that it isn't opaque under studio lighting. If I remember correctly, it was opaque in regular lighting at three coats, so still a little on the thinner side.


Matte nail macro.


I'm not sure if I'm a huge fan of this matte but it is still a beautiful polish regardless.
