Polish for a Cause- "Bleu Cruiser" & "Glowing Smardy" by PolishedbyKPT

Hey everyone!
I have some special polish swatches and reviews to share with all of you tonight!

Katherine of PolishedbyKPT created this duo of polishes for a special cause. Pictured on the left is "Bleu Cruiser", a royal blue polish with tiny glass shimmer flakes. On the right, is "Glowing Smardy", a rechargeable glow in the dark polish with various shades of blue glitters in various sizes.

What makes this duo so special, is that these were made in honor of a boy named Nate. He has Spinal Muscular Atrophy with Respiratory Distress Type 1 (SMARD1) which is a neuromuscular condition that causes weak muscles.  SMARD is caused by mutations on the IGHMBP2 gene.  It is a motor neuron disease, meaning there is progressive destruction of cells that control motor function.

And now, on to the swatches and reviews!

First up, "Bleu Cruiser".
I applied two coats over white finished off with a top coat. This polish is super shiny and so amazing in real life! It was so hard to photograph the shimmer without having a huge glare on my nail.
The polish became a little thick as I applied it, so I was careful to paint thin layers so the polish wouldn't bubble up (with air bubbles). Application was smooth, and with the top coat, the finish is all nice and shiny.

you can better see the shimmer in this close-up of the bottle!

The second polish of the duo is called "Glowing Smardy".
Application was nice and smooth, and dried super fast, so I didn't have to wait so long to apply more than one coat.
I used two coats over "Bleu Cruiser" again topped with a top coat.

Glow in the dark photo!
This polish didn't glow as much on my nails, but I think that has to do with my dark base color. I will try to swatch this over white in the future and I will update you all with what happens!

**I will be putting together a videos of these polishes in motion, but as of now, my video editing program is not working. I will update you with when I put together this video.
