PMP September Sparkle Collection Swatches and Nail Art

Hello lovelies! I hope you're enjoying your weekend! I've taken some time today to swatch some more beautiful glitter babies from Pocket Money Polishes! The lovely Charlie was kind enough to send me these beauties to swatch. These are part of her September Sparkle Collection being released tomorrow! I'm a huge fan of her glitters because they're so versatile and perfect to use on their own over a polish or with nail art.


All of Charlie's polishes so far are named after songs, this beauty is named after 'Who Wants to Live Forever' but has been shortened to 'Forever'. It's a mix of large and tiny black circle glitters with iridescent bars in a clear base. I have to admit I am not usually a bar glitter fan but I really do like this polish because they are very subtle! It applies evenly but I did fish for the circle glitters because as with most large glitters they tend to not come out as easily and also I wanted to place them nicely!

I applied one coat over a gradient of Sinful Colors Snow Me White and Ciate Skinny Jeans. I then attempted some stamping - still really not brilliant at this but I love the effect over a glitter mani! I used Pueen plate 44. I couldn't resist using one of my mum's paintings as a prop! I love owls and this mani went perfectly with it :D

Angels is the white version of Forever, it's named after the song Angels by Robbie Williams and I think that suits it perfectly! It is absolutely beautiful, with large white circle glitters and tiny hex glitters with iridescent bars. Because this polish looks so delicate I decided to put it over a pastel base. I used Models Own Beth's blue. Application was the same as Forever, you'll need to fish out the white circle glitters to place them where you want.

I didn't do any nail art because I found this so delicate that when I tried stamping it just didn't look right and covered up the beauty of it! Swatches show one coat over Beth's Blue with one coat of Seche Vite.

This is the Life

This is the Life is named after a favourite song of Charlie's by Amy Macdonald. This is one of my favourites from Charlie's September collection. It's a mix of purple glitters with some added fine black holo. It was an absolute dream to apply and oddly very easy to remove too! Swatches below show one thin layer over Picture Polish Flirt without topcoat.

Unfortunately I swatched this a couple of weeks ago and didn't have time for nail art but don't worry, I'll definitely be bringing this beauty out again!

These are being released tomorrow at 6pm along with 5 other polishes (include my absolute favourite that I reviewed previously, brown eyed girl)

You can purchase glitter babies here in the UK, they cost £4 for 5ml, with postage at £1.50 for up to 4 polishes. Also, amazing news for US indie lovers, Charlie will be setting up a pop up store in September so you can get your hands on some too! Follow here to keep updated :D

So which is your favourite? Will you be purchasing some glitter babies?

*These polishes were sent to me to review but all opinions are my own
