Bliss Polish LE Starbucks Swap polish!

Hey guys! Today I have my first nail art (well, on one nail anyway) since Valentines Day! I can't believe it. Well, actually, I can. Moving and unpacking and being still in the middle of the school year has been insane! But I'm finally at the point where I've done enough unpacking where I feel like I can devote a little time to my nails again. Hooray!

Bliss is a brand that is still a little new to me, I only have one before this and its from the January "Pipe Down this Love is Bliss" box  (which I never got around to doing a post on but I will soon AND I picked up the April box too!)

Yvette of Bliss Polish has been a woman on a mission to collect all of the Starbucks "You Are Here" mugs (yall saw the one I have in this post about my new coffee routine.) She has an amazing collection so far! She reached out that she still needed a few and Nashville was on the list because the first person to offer it didn't pan out. In return she is offering a mug from where she lives OR this set of polishes she made just for the people who swap with her! I chose those, of course! (and because Mr. Aggies would kill me if I brought home another mug haha)

She also included a lip-gloss like container of cuticle oil! Which smells amaaaaaaaazing!

Here is the look I came up with using these polishes! They go so well together!

"You are Here" is a milky white crelly with pinkish coral and mint green glitters as well as some silver/holographic glitters and shimmer. "Mermaid Crown" is a gold glitter that is completely opaque in 2-3 coats. I paired these with NCLA "Santa Monica Shore Thing" (mint green) and Zoya Miranda (texture) I love love love this combo!

The glitter does sink down in this type of polish so it's a good idea to set it upside down for a little bit before you use it. This is my super secret high tech method...

For the chevrons I used nail vinyls, easy peasy, as long as your base is dry! I used a fast dry topcoat and waited about an hour (longer than most people wait) then the gold glitter. I put 2 quick coats on and tried to remove the vinyls as quick as I could.

Here's a video tutorial! I'd love it if you subscribed to my channel :) I'm hoping to get lots more videos up soon and more regularly!

Here's the gathering of what I used for this mani. I'm still a huge fan of this mix and match type of  mani as a way to try out several polishes at once! The NCLA was also an untried. The formula was a little chalky but not terrible! I used 2 coats of it and also the Zoya.
