Paint Box Polish: Sweet and Treats Collection - Swatches and Review

*These products are Cruelty Free 


Paint Box Polish
Sweets and Treats Collection

Of course if you're a Harry Potter fan, you recognized the names immediately - goodies you might purchase at Honeydukes, the famous Hogsmeade Sweetshop. Or from the trolley lady on the Hogwarts Express. And the new base is now 5-Free!

Continued after the jump...

I'll start by addressing for formula and application as it was nearly the same on all 4 of these. I used two coats on all of them except for Sugar Spun Quills because it's a ONE-COATER! The other 3 nearly are but I did use 2 for the photos on those 3 just because I show you very close shots. I had zero issues with any of these to report. They are all easy and smooth and nicely self-leveling. Pygmy Puff is a matte finish, but I'll show you with and without top coat. Extremely happy with all 4 of these. Especially love my one-coaters so Sugar Coated Quills was great for me. As with all one-coaters, it's a smidge thicker than the others but perfect, in my opinion.


Acid Pops is a super-bright acid green shimmer polish loaded with light blue shimmer/micro-flakes.  Two coats with one coat of top coat.

Fizzing Whizbees is brilliant, super-bright orange that's so juicy I wanted to lick my own nails.  (Don't worry, I restrained myself.) It's loaded with shimmer/micro-flakes in gold, orange and I *think* I see bits of translucent and pink too? Two coats and one coat of top coat.

Pygmy Puff is an orange-leaning coral full of gold shimmer/micro-flakes and it dries to a great matte finish! Shown here with two coats - with and without top coat.

Sugar Spun Quills is a lovely medium red full of pink violet shimmer/micro-flakes and this is indeed ONE COAT with one coat of top coat.

What do you think? Favorites? My favorite is Pygmy Puff - I LOVE the flakes and that it dries matte but looks equally great with top coat. Sugar Spun Quills is a close second because ONE COAT!

She is now using her new 5-Free base for all of her polishes and it's fantastic!
