Olive & June Favorite Seashell Collection Review & Swatches

Olive & June just launched a new mini collection of polishes and I wanted to dedicate an entire post to it because it's so good!!! If you know me, you know I love tinted sheer polish and sparkly chrome-y polish, aka THIS COLLECTION! 

Have you heard about my favorite hack for wearing all of my regular polishes while keeping my nails protected and helping them grow longer? Plus my nails are never stained from regular polish, I don’t have ridges, and my nails never peel?? The secret is *clear builder gel*!

I wear a thin layer of clear builder gel under my nails most days to give my nails are super smooth, plump surface. It gives my nails so much strength so they can grow out without being bendy, I truly can hit them on anything and they won’t break, and they’re never stained from regular polish. It’s THE BEST! Here are some links if you’re interested in learning more:

My FAVE Clear Builder Base – It’s so shiny and makes my nails SO strong

My NEW Gel Manicure 1.0 Masterclass Tutorial Course – If you’re new to gel manicures or can’t seem to perfect your at-home process, you NEED to watch this. 

My Builder Gel Application Course – My exact process for applying builder gel. It’s so much easier than you think. Once you watch this, you’ll be a pro in no time!

My NEW Dry Manicure Prep Course – Prep is KEY for making your manicures last. This is my brand new Dry Manicure course where I go into detail on how to prep your nail surface, how I do my cuticle care + nip my cuticles, and how I shape my nails. This works for both regular and gel manicures!

The Favorite Seashell Collection is inspired by found treasures on the beach and features four milky sheer colors with pearly shimmery finishes! The photos & videos really don't do this collection justice because the multi-colored shimmer just doesn't come across as well! Trust me when I say the colors are so pretty and they're all really unique! Let's get into the collection!

Don't forget, you can use my code OJKARA20 for 20% off a mani or pedi system :)


This polish reminds me of Strawberry Scone (which is one of my favorite O&J colors!!) with a milky iridescent shimmer added. It's slightly sheer, so it needs a few coats to be opaque! 






This polish has a sheer grey tint with slightly pinky shimmer added! I feel like this one wasn't quite as sheer as Pink Capiz, but it still has the sheer effect :) 






This is a sheer lavender polish with a pinky/lavender iridescent shimmer added! I feel like this polish is super unique to the O&J collection and isn't too similar to anything that I can think of. It's a very light purple sheer and I really hope they make this color without shimmer in the future too! 





This polish is a neutral sheer with a golden iridescent shimmer added! This one reminds me of CHM (another sheer I love!). This might be my favorite of the whole collection. It looks like a neutral sheer with some added dimension and it's just super beautiful! 





Which color is your favorite of the collection? Are you planning to pick any up?
