OLIVE & JUNE SUMMER 2022 COLLECTION SWATCHES & REVIEW
It’s time for another summer Olive & June Collection!! This one is Camp O&J and it’s full of really pretty, pastel/muted but also bright colors that are so fun for the warmer temps! Let’s get into it!
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:

One quick desperation minute from myself!! I’m so glad you love these reviews and I hope you find value in them! If you plan on buying anything from O&J (even if it’s not from this blog post), I would really appreciate if you used my LINK here. It costs you nothing, but it tells the brand that you came from my content and helps support me and the time that it takes for me to make these posts :) This is my full time job now and any support is GREATLY appreciated! This goes for any content creator that you follow as well!! It helps us grow and tells the brand that we are really driving sales/traffic for them :) ok lets get into the post!!
ALSO -- There is NEW Mani Box for this collection. Make sure to watch this video for my unboxing to see the new features!
This is a muted emerald green polish, it’s almost like creamy with a little bit of white added into it. It’s definitely not a jewel tone, and I really like how unique it is compared to some other true emerald polishes! This is 2 coats, really easy to paint with! I think this color is most similar to other teal/muted greens in OJ's collection like Cucumber Sandwich and Yes Please, but definitely not similar enough to skip it if you like it!!
Omg isn’t this one just gorgeous in natural light!!! This is similar to Green Canteen in the sense that it’s a royal blue polish with some creamy white undertones to make it more muted! I love this one! It applied so easily and was opaque in 2 coats. I thought this color was most similar to CNH, but CNH looks more muted/greyish, and Blue Canoe looks way more vibrant IRL!!
This polish is like a minty aqua cream color! It’s minty, but it’s not super green, it’s definitely more of a blue aquamarine leaning polish. Describing colors is so hard lol. I love how this one looks, it reminds me of essie mint candy apple! I think this one was a little bit harder to apply since it’s pastel, so this is 3 coats. This color looks so similar to KMC in the bottle, but I think KMC looks more green / like a true mint color on the nails than Sleeping bag which looks much more aquamarine!
I love a pinky coral creamy polish, so this one is definitely a shining star! It applied super easily and is just a great looking coral in two coats! This color is like a mix between Stinson Sunset and Lava/You're Doing Great! I think it's a little lighter than Lava but definitely darker than Stinson Sunset!
Pen Pal is a creamy salmon pink color! I really love colors like this too. It’s pretty bright, and not overly muted like some others in this collection! Pen Pal is pretty similar to Stinson Sunset, but a little lighter!
This is a muted mac n cheese orange polish!! It’s fun and bright! I think it will be really cute to use in nail art looks, I probably wouldn’t wear it on its own every time but that’s just me :) This is three coats and it’s a bit more difficult to paint with than others. This color is almost identical to Citrus Squeeze from the Stoney Clover Lane x Target collection, so if you've been wanting that color, this is the perfect substitute!
Which colors are calling your name the most?? I think my favorites are Green Canteen and Blue Canoe mostly because they are really unique and look so bright and fun, plus they were a dream to paint!!
PS. Since you’ll be painting your nails, might I suggest you check out my Perfect Painting 101 course? I’ve heard from numerous people that they’ve watched tons of painting classes and this is the only one that truly changed their painting game!! 💅💅💅
