Sweetcheeks II - Matte and Jelly Holos

Hello, Fireflies!

Today, I bring you three more Sweetcheeks polishes.  Ready? And...

First, Sweetcheeks Polish in Vous Etes Mon Soleil.  Now, I don't speak French, but I think this means, "You are my sun."  or "Beer, please?"  I know for sure ONE thing it doesn't say, because of the song Lady Marmalade.

Sweetcheeks Polish in Vous Etes Mon Soleil

This is a holo matte polish! Kinda cool, actually.  I did a striping tape design, and painted Sweetcheeks Polish Black Ice over the tape.

And, like I always tell you not to do, I didn't let the base polish dry completely.  So, the tape pulled off all the purple polish underneath it.  I was saying some stuff, Pardon My French, if ya know what I mean.


So, one of these nails has been doctored, and the other hasn't.  But look at how pretty it all is with topcoat on?

Bonus polish:  This is Sweetcheeks Polish Eric, a brown jelly with green shimmer.  I think it's pretty.  But, Eric has a dark side.  He is thick and not very well pigmented.  So, I had to use 4 layers to get this much color, and for the shimmer to show up.

But, why is there no nail art on it? Because it didn't dry fast enough, and I banged it all up.  So, this is a polish for those who are patient! And less clumsy than I am.

Did you miss yesterday's post with two other Sweetcheeks polishes and some floral nail art?  It's HERE if you want to go see it.  If you'd like more information about Sweetcheeks Polish, you can find them on Facebook and Etsy.

This post contains products that were purchased by me, at a discount, for the purpose of review.  Nonetheless, my opinions are my own, and as honest as possible.

  1. Looks great! The tape design is nice too. That happens to me too when I'm impatient so that's why I usually add a top coat over the base color before applying tape on it.

    1. I bet you already knew that it meant, "You are my sunshine," too! And, apparently, Black Ice is really blue. I'm batting 1000 today.

    1. What a nice compliment that you think I could turn a polish you don't like into one you would! LOL!

    1. I agree! Apparently, the purple color is in support of Pancreatic Cancer awareness, which I didn't know until after I wrote my review.

    1. It was the first color I put in my cart! And it's the color for support of Pancreatic Cancer awareness, so the maker tells me.

  7. Matte holo is a totally new concept for me, and I love what you did with the colors. I messed up my mani so many times because I didn't let the polish dry completely! :)

    1. Mentality has a matte holo topcoat you might like. I'm so clumsy, it's a miracle I ever get a manicure without dings.
