Polished For Days Once Upon a Dream Collection Swatches, Review & Live Swatch


Today I have the Polished For Days Once Upon a Dream Collection to share with you! This is a new-to-me brand and this 7 piece collection that was inspired but the Disney princesses is the perfect intro as it is filled with gorgeous colours and unique finishes. 

It's available now at Harlow & Co. 💕

Before we get into the pictures, I wanted to share some info and thoughts about the brand:
- the brand is 7-free, vegan and cruelty-free
- the packaging is really cute with the white boxes and holographic detailing, I especially love the holographic heart at the top of the box, the cute nail polish bottles on the tabs and side of the box, and the heart as the dot over the i in the word "Polished"; the details definitely matter and shows just how much care and thought the brand has put into their products 
- each bottle is 15 ml, has shiny black caps, and has a slightly curved wide, flatbrush
- the brushes themselves I found a bit stiff and a little too wide for my pinky finger but when that happens, I just don't use too much polish and don't apply too much pressure so that I can still control the application
- the formulas were really well done, had great coverage, and leveled beautifully on my nails

Overall I definitely get the appeal of these beautiful polishes and the brand. 😊

Ok, let's get into the pictures! Keep in mind that each swatch is 2 coats and no top coat.

First up, Watch and You'll Sea is a red jewel toned jelly base packed with pink-gold-green iridescent shifting flakes and sparkling bright red reflective micro glitter. Inspired by Princess Ariel’s lyric from “Part of Your World.” “Sea” is a nod to one of our best selling polishes that inspired the reflective version, “Sea-ing is Believing”.

This red is gorgeous and the flakies and reflective glitters add such a beautiful depth to the polish.

These first sets of polishes are without flash.

The rest of these are with flash.

Tale as Old as Time is a bright yellow base a gold-green iridescent shifting micro flake shimmer.  Inspired by Princess Belle with lyric from song "Beauty and the Beast". 

So sweet in real life, just a touch of golden magic ✨

Almost There is a lime green base with a gold-green-blue iridescent shifting micro flake shimmer and holo micro flakes. Inspired by Princess Tiana's song to celebrate successfully opening her dream restaurant.

This shimmery green is so bright and fresh and brilliantly beautiful!

 Inspired by something Princess Jasmine says to Aladdin, It's All so Magical is an aqua crelly base with gold iridescent metallic flakes and black matte flakes.

I wasn't sure how to feel about this one but the different sized flakes, the iridescent flakes, the black flakes and the aqua base just work so nicely together. I'm a sucker for aqua/teal/turquoise 😍

 Inspired by a song sung by Princess Aurora in Sleeping Beauty, Once Upon a Dream is a periwinkle base with a pink-orange-yellow-green shifting iridescent shimmer and holographic flakes.

Oh wow.. this one is super stunning! 😍

Inspired by the song sang by Princess Pocahontas, Just Around the Riverbend is a blue toned grey base packed with purple-pink-orange shimmer and holographic flakes

Inspired by the floating lights in Tangled with Princess Rapunzel, Floating Lights is a dusty mauve crelly with pink-yellow-green iridescent shifting flakes and sparkling silver reflective micro glitters

I absolutely adore this shade! The reflective glitters aren't super in-your-face but there is definitely a magical sparkle mixed in with all those lovely flakies.

These first sets of pictures are without flash.
