Polish My Life Thank You for Being A Friend Collection plus Bronze Beauty: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hey everyone! I have more Polish My Life today, this time a review of her upcoming Thank You Being a Friend Collection. You probably started humming the theme song as soon as you read the name. For those who did not watch, this collection is inspired by the show The Golden Girls

The Golden Girls was a show that was on the air when I was a kid so this collection was a hit of nostalgia. I haven't watch it a *very* long time so a re-watch will need to be done soon I think. For those who are not connected to the inspiration, I think that you will find this collection to be still quite wonderful. 

Formula notes:
The formula and application for this set was really great. These are some of the most easily applied matte polishes I have used. Because they are more a satin matte than pure matte finish, they have a more thin consistency. While a couple of them were somewhat opaque in two coats, I ended up applying three thin coats for opacity. If you apply two coats, you may see some of your nail imperfections (I did) which is why I did three coats. I did not use a base coat or ridge builder while swatching and you can see how smooth they dry down too. Each one has a very subtle shimmer which is not very visible in its matte state but with added topcoat, you can see a pretty shimmer that adds a little extra sparkle to the polish. 

Included in this post is Bronze Beauty, created to mark the third anniversary of Polish My Life. That one is available right now in the shop. The Thank You For Being a Friend Collection will go on sale on Friday, October 7th in Polish My Life's shop. You can get the set for $44 or $11 individually.
