Island Girl Polishes

There was no way I was leaving Las Vegas without Island Girl polishes. Island Girl polishes are available at ABC stores in Hawaii and also in Las Vegas. Since I know I won't be going to Hawaii anytime soon but I frequent Vegas- I figured this was the time to get them. 

I have to say- overall I was not impressed with the formula. Most of them were streaky and hard to work with. It's such a shame because they are incredibly pretty.

This is 3 coats of Big Island Volcano.

Big Island Volcano is a turquoise shimmer polish.

The color is gorgeous but the formula was lacking. It was streaky and dried patchy.

You can see here how patchy it is.

This is 3 coats of Oahu Paradise.

Oahu Paradise is a deep green jelly.

You can see the formula on this polish was problematic as well.

It's too bad about this formula. :(

This is 3 coats of Waikiki Sunset.

Waikiki Sunset is a blue glitter polish with silver hexagon glitter.

You might have caught on that I like glitter. I'm doing a little happy dance about this polish. I LOVE it.

Can you see the silver glitter peaking out in the corner?

This is 3 coats of Island Sunset.

Island Sunset is a magenta jelly polish with gritty holographic glitter.

This glitter is pretty, too. But prepare yourself with some Gelous before your topcoat. It's grit-city over here.

This is 2 coats of Aloha Luau.

Aloha Luau is a purple polish with shimmer and satin finish.

The formula on this polish was decent, but still a bit streaky.

I love the color of this one.

This is 1 coat of Mahalo Dream over China Glaze Phat Santa.

Manalo Dream is a red flakie polish.

Yuck. I am not a fan of flakies like this.

Argh, another streaky one.


  1. The second one is the only one I don't really like. All the rest of them are INCREDIBLE. Seriously. I think I could deal with the crappy formula.

  2. I like Big Island Volcano and Island Sunset. It's a shame the formula wasn't better. Looks like you had fun shopping though! :)

  3. All so pretty! Especially love Island Sunset and Aloha Luau! Pity on the formula!

  4. haha that's crazy because i was there last week :) in that same store looking at those nail polishes lol

  5. Oh man, I LOVE Big Island Volcano! My second fave would be Aloha Luau. What a bummer that it's streaky :(

  6. I'm glad you did this review because I have dying to get my hands on this brand but am really particular about the formula. It's to bad cuz the colors are cute & so is the packaging.

  7. These are awesome! Now I want to go to Las Vegas!

  8. For the streaky jelly use an all black polish as a base coat then after it dries add the color it will make such a beautiful difference
