Hey guys and gals! So Valentine's Day is a little less than a month away! While I'm not one to go crazy over the holiday, I don't mind it so much. I don't need a special day to show my husband that I love and appreciate him, but I have no problem with spending a day focused on love and kindness rather than something negative!
Today I have the Valentine's Day themed collection from the fabulous Bliss Polish. I really think this is the best collection Yvette has created and I am thrilled to share it with you guys! Also, I want to apologize to your wallets before hand. Because they are gonna cry after you see these swatches!

Bliss Polish - Mint 2 Be
Mint 2 Be is a soft mint green with a linear holo effect. As soon as I unpacked all the polishes, I immediately swatches Mint 2 Be. It is frickin gorgeous, the color is perfection and the holo effect is amazing. Formula was a bit on the thicker side, but not problematic. If you don't prefer thicker polishes, a couple of drops of thinner is all you need to make this beauty work. This is 2 coats (I didn't add thinner to mine) of minty holo goodness. Dry time was a little longer than average due to the thicker base, but if you wait in between coats, you shouldn't have any issues.
Bliss Polish - Wine And Dine
Wine And Dine is a cranberry red with a linear holo effect. No body makes a red quite like Yvette! You guys know how I feel about reds, and I seriously love every single red shade I have swatched for Bliss Polish. Wine And Dine is no less beautiful! The holo is not as strong as Mint 2 Be, but it is still very pretty and gives such a nice depth to the polish. This is 2 coats, and the formula was a perfect consistency.
Bliss Polish - Kismet
Kismet is a squishy bright lavender with a gorgeous blue iridescent shimmer. It leans a touch more red than my photos, my camera likes to turn purples very blue. I love this one so much! It is bright and fun and super cute! The jelly base has the perfect amount of squish and the shimmer is amazing! Formula was awesome. 2 coats for full coverage and no issues at all with cuticle drag or streaks. LOVE!
Bliss Polish - Destiny (Matte)
Destiny is a bubble gum pink with silver micro flakies and dries to a soft satin finish. It is soft and delicate and at the same time bright and bubbly. If you are a pink lover, this shade will knock your socks off! I still can't decide if I like it better matte or glossy. I think both ways are super pretty, and you can see different sides of the polish each way. Again, this is 2 coats with a good formula.
Bliss Polish - Smooch
Smooch is a raspberry jelly filled with pink, brown and gold hex glitters in various sizes. Holy crap this is an awesome polish! As with Kismet, Smooch has an amazing squishy jelly base and the glitter mix goes along perfectly with it! I love the unexpected brown bits, they add a really interesting dimension to the polish. @ coats, great formula, awesome.
Bliss Polish - XO
XO is the teal counterpart to Smooch. It has the same glitter mix, swapping out pink glitter for blue. And I love this one just as much! The teal base color is frickin gorgeous! I did have a problem with the glitters sinking with this one, and ended up doing 3 coats to get enough glitter to my liking. Other than that, it was a great polish.
I honestly cannot pick a favorite, or recommend one over another. The entire collection is great and there is something for everyone! Like I said, Yvette has really outdone herself and I am so impressed by every single polish in the set! So break out your wallets, kids, and have fun picking out some gorgeous colors!
