New Hit Polish Nail Lacquer Review

Hi there, everyone!  I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!  I'm having a bit of extended one because the July 4th holiday, it may be a bit hard to go back to work next week lol  Anyway, as a warning, this post is a bit more photo heavy than my usual and that's because I'm reviewing 3 new Hit Polish lacquers today!  I'm super excited as this is my first "official" review. 

If you haven't heard of Hit Polish Nail Lacquer, you're really missing out.  Rachel, the owner and operator, used to sell her polish under the name D & R Apothecary on Etsy.  You can still find her perfume oils there, but she has moved her polishes to the new store with a new name.  Moving didn't matter cuz her polishes are still fabulous!  Let's get to it, shall we?


First up is Summer Punch.  SP is a glitter topper brimming with small glitters in red, yellow, lavender, and bubblegum pink; larger hexes in yellow, lavender, and bubblegum pink; and sprinkled with red stars.

For this mani, I've layered 2 coats of SP over 2 coats of Sinful Colors in Over It.  This combination of glitters would look awesome over many different colors though, I had a hard time deciding which to use it over!

Summer Punch has a lovely formula, smooth and not gloppy, and the glitters were all easy to apply.  I did have to fish a bit for the stars, but it really wasn't a hassle at all and totally worth the extra work!

Next in line is Teal Me About It.  TMAI is (aptly named) a deep teal crelly base with small gold, teal, and green glitters; larger hexes in gold, green, and teal holographic glitters; small teal squares; gold bars; and purple shreds.

Check out the depth in this one!  We all know I'm a sucker for a good crelly and I think Rachel's knocked it out with this one!  It reminds me of Mardi Gras in a bottle because of the gold, green and purple color pretty!

Again formula was no issue, although TMAI is on the sheer side so be prepared to use several coats.  I used 4 coats for the above photos, but probably could have passed with 3.  If you want to use fewer coats, you could certainly layer Teal Me About It over another creme polish.


And finally, we have Jammin' Good Time, my personal favorite of the 3.  JGT is another glitter topper, this time with silver and fuchsia microglitters; fuchsia dots in 2 sizes (be still my heart!); and bright blue hexes and squares.  

Here I've layered 2 coats of JGT over 2 coats of China Glaze in Tart-y For the Party.  There is so much I love about this polish!   My aforementioned love of crellies is second only to my love of dots and pairing those dots with the smaller blue squares was a good call.

The formula on this polish was just as nice as the previous 2, again with a bit of fishing for the larger dots and hexes.  Totally worth the extra work!  I'm planning to try Jammin' Good Time over a black polish next time, I think the colors will just sing!

Currently, Hit Polish Nail Lacquers retail for $3.25-4 for mini sizes and $8 for full size bottles. I've purchased from Hit Polish in the past and will definitely do so again in the future.  She's got a great product for a reasonable price and I hope you all will give her a visit!  Summer Punch, Teal Me About It, and Jammin' Good Time will be available from Hit Polish's  Etsy store on July 15th along with 30+ (!) other brand new polishes.  Feel free to follow Hit Polish on facebook to keep up with releases and any other important info!

Thanks so much for reading!
