Another fun fact is that I will always support, be curious, and buy products made by my favorite Youtube vloggers. There has been Colourpop shadows from Kathleen Lights, Champagne Pop from Jaclyn Hill, and now finally a nail polish collab from Nicole of Young, Wild, and Polished.
Nicole talks about "indie" nail polish brands a lot, one of her favorites is Glisten & Glow. She has raved about their H&K Girl topcoat and the formulas of all their polishes. I've never bothered to try them out, but then last week she released the news that she was coming out with a collaboration with the brand.
It didn't take me very long to log onto the Glisten & Glow website and place an order. I ordered two shades from the collection: Dukeberry & Frosty Camel. I also grabbed the HK Girl top coat because I needed to know what all the hype is about.

Dukeberry is a unique shade; it's a dark plum/brown color that has the most incredibly cream finish I've ever seen. The quality is definitely better than an Essie polish. It applied like a dream and two coats were more than enough to get the incredibly opaque finish.
The formula is smooth and buttery, I have never used a polish like this.
The HK Girl top coat was even better. It's a thick texture but not goopy or hard to work with. It actually applied very smoothly. It definitely helped keep the shine in my nails and dried super quickly.
It's safe to say that Glisten & Glow gets an A+ in my book and I'll probably purchase one or two more of these polishes soon!
