Trying something different for me :-)

Hey ya'll!

Today I have for you some pictures of Pretty & Polished's Bayou Blitz. I fell in love when I saw this because it reminds me of the Floam polishes with a little extra oomph. I will be the first to admit that this is not my best mani but I still love it. 

Bayou Blitz has very fine matte yellow glitters in a lighter green jelly base. The best part is the larger hexes in pink, blue, purple and orange. These are matte as well and some look translucent. The overall effect it has when you add a couple of coats is like Floam with big happy surprises in it!

I have on three thin coats of Bayou Blitz with no top coat in the next two pictures. :-)
In the shade.
In the sun. :-)

And then there was matte!! I had to add Hard Candy Matte-ly in Love matte top coat to this to see how it looked. It hid most of the knicks I got in them while chasing kids with wet nails. LOL. Below are the pictures with the matte top coat!!

Isn't it lovely?
 Here's a close up so you can see the orange ones and the ones from the first and second coats. So much depth with this one!

I got this color in a swap so I'm not sure if it's still available. But Pretty and Polished has some stunning colors and the formula of the ones I have tried are fantastic. I fished to get the colors I wanted but only because I was being picky. These glitters came out easily for me.

You can find your favorite Pretty and Polished colors at their shopify me store here.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think about this type of polish? Do you like colored polishes with glitters? Are you loving or hating the matte glitter fad?

Thanks for stopping in. See ya'll soon.


  1. This is such a cool polish! You nails look gorgeous girlie! <3

    1. I really thought the big matte hexes made it so unique. I really enjoyed the way it looked. My camera didn't really do the polish justice but it was a fun one to wear.

      Thanks so much for the compliment and encouragement. I'd be back down to bloody nubs if I didn't have my wonderful friends like yourself to keep me on track. I appreciate it, sweets!

  2. Your nails are looking so long and strong and pretty! Great mani, I love the big coloured glitters :)

  3. That polish looks so weird, but in a really good way :) It's super unique!
