Poetry Cowgirl Nail Polish - Stars & Stripes Trio | 4th of July Collection

2 comments

Hiya guys! Even though I am a planner girl, I really didn't realize just how close we were to July. Of course I am super excited because not only will it be summer and my birthday, but it's a time to be with family! Kicking things off with the 4th of July: good food, fireworks, and doggies in the pool. Fun stuff all around, haha. But it also means it'll be time to show my patriotic side with some manicures! I always struggle finding the right tone of red and blue to use, so thankfully we have some new releases to help. Today I'm sharing swatches for the Stars & Stripes Trio by Poetry Cowgirl Nail Polish, which consists two solids and a glitter topper. I love holiday themed releases, so let's just get right to the swatches!

Poetry Cowgirl Nail Polish - Stars & Stripes Trio | 4th of July Collection

The Stars & Stripes Trio by Poetry Cowgirl Nail Polish will be releasing on Friday, June 9th @ 12:00PM EST. Each full-size 15mL bottle retails for $10-$11, mini-sized 8mL for $7-$8, depending on the finish. The entire full-size trio will retail for $30 or mini for $18. This patriotic themed trio will be restocked through the end of July and then will be discontinued.

Stars & Stripes can be described as a glitter bomb packed with silver holo, navy holo, and red holo mini stars, white hex and bar glitters, and ultra-micro silver holo glitter.

The formula has a really easy application with plenty of glitters per brush stroke. Consistency wise it leans on thick, but that's to be expected with the amount of glitters. Speaking of which, there's no fishing for any of the stars and bars needed. Not even placement is needed as they glide off the brush seamlessly. It dries down a bit on the textured side, but smooths out nicely after topcoat. Shown in one coat over a gradient and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Twilight’s Last Gleaming can be described as a vibrant electric blue holo packed with turquoise and rainbow micro flakies.

The formula has good opacity while still leaning on the sheer side. It has a balanced consistency, not too thick or too thin. Very smooth application and easy to work with. I experienced some minor staining on removal to my nail bed, but none to my cuticles. Shown in two to three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Please note: the formula will be tweaked a bit before release to have it be more opaque.

Rocket’s Red Glare can be described as a perfect summer strawberry red holo packed with rose-gold and rainbow micro flakies. Out of the three shades here this one is definitely my favorite. It's such a bright and fun shade, while still having all the sass that a red should. Especially when it comes to the flakies bringing in that pop factor. Hands down my pick for must-have!

The formula has a very opaque application, almost a one coater. But with one coat I did feel there was a minimal visible nail line, hence the need for another layer. It has a fantastic consistency, not too thick or too thin. I experienced no staining on removal to my nail beds or cuticles. Shown in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Overall I love all the shades in this collection, especially the solid colors with the hint of holo. They are going to be perfect to create some patriotic manis for the 4th of July.

To recap, Stars & Stripes Trio by Poetry Cowgirl Nail Polish will be releasing on Friday, June 9th @ 12:00PM EST. Each full-size 15mL bottle retails for $10-$11, mini-sized 8mL for $7-$8, depending on the finish. The entire full-size trio will retail for $30 or mini for $18. This patriotic themed trio will be restocked through the end of July and then will be discontinued.

With this release also marks a new cuticle oil scent, Blueberry Lemon Sugar, for the months of June and July. It is described as a delicious blend of sweet, fresh blueberries, tart lemon, and a hint of warm sugar. Think blueberry ice cream on top of fresh-baked lemon squares! As always, you have the retail option of 5mL oil in a glass roller ball bottle for $6 or an 8mL oil in a glass brush bottle for $7.
