Glisten & Glow I Love You to the Blue and Back and Hand Care Products Review

Press Sample

Glisten & Glow is most known for hand care and top coat but recently, they have debuted nail polish. I have a full review of a variety of products below, including the limited edition nail polish  I Love You to the Blue and Back below. Stick around for a coupon code for your next order.

Base and Top Coat:

Stuck on Blu Base Coat: I do like the way this base coat protects my nails. I have been switching my nail polish so frequently, I can't attest to wear time but it's blue tinted and didn't dry out my nails, and that's always good for swatchers and people with brittle nails. 

G&G HK Girl Top Coat: I have heard a lot about this top coat. I've only just started using it, but it is a nice thick top coat that does cover glitters well and the dry time is fast. I am used to Seche Vite, and I would say this does not dry as fast as SV. I know a lot of people have issues with SV causing shrinkage, which I haven't experience with HK Girl, so this top coat is a nice alternative.

I Love You to the Blue and Back

Glisten & Glow describes this polish as a  "steel blue holo with various shapes and sizes of metallic and matte blue, white, silver, navy, light blue and aqua glitters. I say that is pretty much accurate. The holo base is opaque enough that the polish covers in two coats, but not so opaque that the glitter gets covered. The holo flame is very strong in the base of this polish.

Cuticle Care:

I received the Pomegranate Kiss Cuticle Oil and the Sangria White Peach cuticle balm. I applied the oil to my index and ring and the balm to my thumb, middle, and pinky. 

Glisten and Glow Cuticle Care

The scent of the oil is pretty sweet and strong, so if you enjoy pomegranate scent, this is for you. The oil comes in a nail polish bottle so you get a large amount and can polish your cuticles with the amount desired.

The Sangria White Peach scent is a more mellow scent than the pomegranate oil. I enjoyed the light scent of this. This balm is a greasy type of balm but absorbs pretty quickly as you can see in my photos. It is not as solid as other balms, but it would be great for a morning or night routine.  I really like that there are so many scents available so you can choose whatever is your favorite.
