Today I have for you another amazing indie brand that has consistently created beautiful polishes and has an awesome creator, Smitten Polish! I previously reviewed Smitten’s Fall collection, and today I am excited to share some of Smitten’s Berrydrops collection!
First up, Bananaberry Gumdrop, a beautiful pale yellow crelly base with subtle flakies. I adore yellow, and yellow can be a pain when it comes to polish; a pain to find a good yellow, a pain to find a good polish, and a pain to apply. But Bananaberry Gumdrop is perfection. It is such a pretty pale yellow that I suspect it would look great on many skintones. And it is such a springy, summery, buttery yellow that I fell in love! It wasn’t as tricky as I thought it could be to apply… I applied a coat over base, let it dry, and applied a second coat.
Is that not like a banana pudding?? Delicious and shiny! I love it!
The second polish is Beautyberry Gumdrop, a sweet-looking lavender crelly with subtle flakies. What can I say but demure, pretty, subtle, ladylike. I wore this one for a few days and loved it every moment. Again, two coats over base coat, this one, with top coat:
What I love most about the Berrydrops is their subtleness. You’ve probably read occasionally about my hesitance to wear crazy polishes to work, and these are absolutely work-appropriate without being boring!
The only downside, if I have to find one, is that the flakies can be sticky during removal, so you may need to scrub a little. Nothing like removing glitter though!
Have you tried any Smitten Polishes, and which one do you love most?
Smitten Polish is available on their Etsy store or from Llarowe. Don’t forget to follow Smitten Polish on Facebook for the latest news and previews!!

I LOVE Smitten Polishes! I have 2 of hers and they are both FLAWLESS – great coverage, easy application, never any fishing and dabbing. Very smooth finish, a ton of depth. Love love LOVE her!
