Polish M - Rest and Relaxation Collection (swatches and review)

**press sample**
Hi guys! Today I have the Rest and Relaxation Collection from Polish M to share with you! This collection includes ten gorgeous polishes that will make you go "ahhhhh"! Hehe! In all seriousness, they really are beautiful! Let's take a look!

Take a Load Off is a gorgeous medium purple creme/crelly filled with really tiny white matte glitters & semi metallic aqua, purple, pink and yellow circle glitters'; as well as pretty purple microflakies throughout that give it a flash of purple! Here I did two coats plus topcoat. This was just a little difficult to remove due to the glitters.

Slow Down a Bit is pretty medium teal creme/crelly filled various sized matte neon hex and circle glitters; as well as a gorgeous teal/green splash of microflakies. Love this so much! This one was also two coats plus topcoat and your standard glitter removal.

Forget the Rest is yellow creme/crelly that is filled with golden microflakies. Pretty good formula for a yellow! This one was almost opaque in two coats, but I needed a third to cover my nail line. 

Just Breathe is a really pretty medium green creme/crelly filled with golden microflakies. I really love the tone of this; if that makes sense. Excellent formula that needed two coats plus topcoat; though it was really close to being a one coater for me.

A Quiet Mind is a sort of dusty, yet still bright, blue creme/crelly filled with golden microflakies. Fantastic formula! My photos show two coats on my index and middle nail, but just one coat on my ring and pinky nail. I can't see any difference in the coverage at all. 

Do Your Best is an beautiful, again muted, but still bright orange creme/crelly filled with golden microflakies. Seriously reminds me of a creamsicle...Mmmm! Here I did two coats plus topcoat.

Relax and Unwind is an awesome pink toned purple creme/crelly filled with golden microflakies. I mean, not much to say....this was also just one coat for me!

I Need Beach is an absolutely gorgeous aqua creme/crelly filled with golden microflakies! I literally put this on my toes right after I got done swatching it! It's gorgeous! This is two coats, but again it is pretty much opaque in just one.

Push Pause is a pretty, sort of "fresh grass" green creme/crelly filled with golden microflakies. My photos are two coats plus topcoat.

Don't Stress is a beautiful hot pink creme/crelly filled with golden microflakies. Gorgeous color and was just two coats plus topcoat!

So, I did this whole beautiful watermarble mani to show you guys, but because I am a clutz, I ran my hand into the wall before it dried....haha! I was able to redo one nail for you though! I used all of the polishes in the collection, aside from the two glitter crellies.

Love this collection! I really like that even though the colors aren't quite neon, they also aren't pastel. They definitely fall somewhere down the middle in my opinion. I also really liked the golden microflakies, that give off that shimmery look. A nice break from all the holos I've seen.

These will all be available at the Indie Event in Torrance, CA on May 21st and then in Polish M's shop towards the middle/end of June. Each single full sized polish will be $9 USD, with the entire collection being available at a discount, for $80 USD

Thanks for reading!
