Olive Ave Polish Flora 2021: My Picks

Any collection that has two greens and two purples in it is just screaming my name. Throw a topper in there and I am 100% sold!!! Olive Ave Polish’s spring collection this year did just that and I think it is a brilliant follow-up to their 2020 spring collection, also named Flora. I reviewed a trio from that collection last year, but this year I ended up getting five of the six polishes and not just a trio. I initially started out supporting Olive Ave Polish because I wanted to support Walker, the owner. She’s one of my favorite nail YouTubers and we both like blues and greens, so I figured I would get along with her nail polish. Well, it’s a year later and I can honestly say I’m now buying Olive Ave Polish because it’s good stuff! Yeah, I still like that I’m supporting her, but this polish is so good that I would probably buy it even if I didn’t know there was a person with a love of polish and great values behind the brand.

Olive Ave Polish Flora Spring 2020 April Showers Trio: Swatch & Review

It’s still technically spring and thankfully, it still feels like spring here in Southern Oregon. Summer is my LEAST favorite season, it’s too damn hot and, on top of that, it’s forest fire time. Two of the three summers I have spent here so far have had 1+ month of the valley being completely surrounded by fires and filled with smoky air 24/7. Can you tell why I don’t look forward to warmer days? Anyhoo, we should talk about something far more pleasant, like the inaugural Olive Ave Polish collection! I have been watching Walker on YouTube for quite some time now and am super stoked that she decided to put some of her creative energy into her own polish line! The best part is that she tends to love blues and greens like someone else you know, so I’m really benefitting a lot from this new venture. I got this trio as a backer on Kickstarter and couldn’t be more pleased. We have a shimmery green, a bright blue mint, and a cornflower blue. This may be a spring collection, but I can see myself wearing some of these in summer or winter too! I know this review is up suuuuper late and that she already has a summer collection out (I got a few from that one too), but these are still going to be restocked for the foreseeable future so I think it’s entirely appropriate to take a look at these beautiful polishes now.
