Dream Polish - Summer Escape Collection

Press Sample 

Greetings mortals! Today, I have Dream Polish's Summer Escape Collection to share with you! For those unfamiliar with Dream Polish, it is a one-stop-shop for scented nail and cuticle care products. If you are a regular reader, you know I absolutely swear by Vanessa's products. They're amazing!


This post is coming to you from the super sunny state of Utah where I am spending time with my wonderfully amazing Mama! Since I am fortunate enough to have this time with my mom, I thought it would be fun to have her help me evaluate some of these summery new scents! The Summer Escape Collection consists of four scents: Sun and Sand, Bird of Paradise, Tropical Mojito, and Hawaiian Orchard.

I tried Bird of Paradise in the form of Gem Glam Top Coat. Bird of Paradise has a sweet, succulent floral scent. If you love floral scents, then this baby is for you! I also picked up subtle fruity notes which complimented this exotic floral. Gem Glam Top Coat dries to the touch relatively quickly and provides a gorgeous glossy finish. Gem Glam Top Coat is my go to top coat, and when you get it scented, you get to smell your fingers all day like a total weirdo which is also awesome! 
Because I am a mere moral, I sometimes miss subtle nuances of scents, so for comparison purposes, here is the scent description provided by Vanessa, the master scent mixologist behind Dream Polish:

Dream Polish's Scent Description:
"True-to-life, nectary floral with subtle base notes of fresh fruit. The belle of any tropical garden."






I tried Tropical Mojito in the form of Gem Glow Cuticle Balm and Smooth Gem Base Coat. Tropical Mojito has a delicious lime scent with a soft minty note. I absolutely love this scent! It's so tangy! The formula of Gem Glow Cuticle Balm is beyond perfect! It is so soft it practically melts on your skin! Smooth Gem Base Coat is a smoothing base coat that is great for leveling ridges in the nails. I can't wait to pair Tropical Mojito Smooth Gem Base Coat with Dream Polish's ever popular Strawberry Champagne Gem Glam Top Coat for some strawberry lime bliss! 

Dream Polish's Scent Description: 
"Juicy lime, sugar, mint leaves and rum balanced with notes of exotic fruits, sparkling berry and a touch of violet."







I tried Hawaiian Orchard in the form of Gem Glow Cuticle Oil. To me, Hawaiian Orchard smells of pineapple, coconut, and banana with a slight floral note. My mom also noted the scent of pineapple and coconut. Hawaiian Orchard is so subtle and sweet, and I can definitely see it being a fan favorite. 

Dream Polish's Scent Description:
"Intensely sweet traditional and tropical fruits with a hint of floral and green. Mango, orange, banana, pineapple and melons are strong notes."






I tried Sun and Sand in the form of Gem Glow Cuticle Balm. My first impression was that Sun and Sand smelled like a day at the beach. Quite literally the incarnation of sun, sand, and the crisp smell of the sea. But there was something about this scent that I just could not put my finger on. When my mom smelled it, she picked up the scent of sunscreen and that was it! That was the note that I could not place. Sun and Sand is such a warm, summery scent and it comes in at a close second to Tropical Mojito for me.

Dream Polish's Scent Description:
"Complex, fresh and clean scent with notes of orange blossoms, ylang ylang and a touch of musk. Reminiscent of sunbaked sunscreen and a beach shower."






This may very well be Dream Polish's best collection of scents to date! The scents are so cohesive and just scream summer! There is certainly something here to please everyone from floral lovers, to fruit fans, and those who love offbeat scents. The Summer Escape Collection will be available for purchase Sunday, June 21st!
