Guilty Pleasures Polish Gladiolus To See You

A couple months back I stumbled across a thread in a Facebook group by Guilty Pleasures Polish, where she was looking for names for her new spring collection. Feeling lucky and inspired I submitted names for the collection and was surprisingly chosen as a winner.. three times! She was rewarding the creators of the winning names with mini bottles of the polishes that you had a hand in naming.

The three colors I named were Gladiolus To See You, Good Morning, Glories!, and Impatients-ly Waiting.

Today's swatch is of Gladiolus To See You. This shimmery coral pink is a perfect layering combination with Essie Cute As A Button, which I've paired it with. The polish itself is super sheer and probably wouldn't reach opacity in upwards of three coats, so I chose to layer it instead. My swatch is two coats of Cute As A Button with one coat of Gladiolus To See You.

The formula was fairly standard and aside from not being opaque I didn't have any issues. The shimmer is slightly frosting so you do get some brushstrokes, however it's not anything incredibly obvious.

Overall I'm incredibly flattered that my names were chosen, and it's always neat to have polishes in your collection that come with a story.

What do you think of this color? Let me know in the comments and thanks for reading!
