Hit Polish - Boarding School, Lites so Brite, & Stairway to the Sky

*Products sent for review*

Yay! I'm finally doing an actual review tonight instead of just a compilation of Instagram photos! I'm so excited to be showing you these polishes in particular because they are from the brand spankin' NEW line from Hit Polish (formerly known as D & R Apothecary), my all time favorite indie!!! 

First up is Boarding School, a glitter topcoat (clear base) that has matte hexes of red, white, & yellow, matte white squares, shiny periwinkle hexes, and matte red hearts!! On my ring finger & thumb I'm wearing 2 dabbed coats of Boarding School by itself. My other fingers have 1 dabbed coat over Color Club 'Pucci-licious'. All nails were topped with 1 coat of Gelous & 1 coat of Seche Vite.

Lites so Brite is a yellow jelly with neon hexes of yellow & orange, squares of pink, blue, & yellow, bars of blue & orange, and blue hearts! This polish just screams Summer!! It's so bright & cheery! On my ring finger I have 3 coats of Lites so Brite by itself. My other fingers have 2 coats layered over white to really make it pop! All nails were topped with 1 coat of Gelous & 1 coat of Seche Vite.

Stairway to the Sky is a glitter topcoat (clear base) that has holo hexes of fuchsia, lavender, green, & teal, along with holo silver bars, stars, and moons!! This one is my absolute favorite out of the three!! It is breathtakingly beautiful in person! I layered 1 dabbed coat over Orly 'Pretty-Ugly' & topped it with 1 coat of Gelous & 1 coat of Seche Vite.
