PIBBLE POLISH Swatch & Review!
I have the most awesome new indie line to show you:
” Unique lacquers inspired by rescue dogs everywhere! “
So why am I so excited? Let me tell you. These polishes are gorgeous. And so unique! That is something that is getting harder and harder to do in the Indie Market but Pibble Polish nails it. The entire line is inspired by rescue dogs, particularly the creator’s current rescue dog – a pitbull “Moo”. Yes. That is a rescue pit-bull named MOO. Pickle just squeaked and fainted (in a good way).
Presenting“Rolling in the Leaves”, Chasing Squirrels in My Dreams”, “Faithful Friend”, and “Heart of Gold”
Control your tails and meet me after the jump!!
Pibble Polish seems to put an extreme amount of care to detail and creativity into this line. The names of the polish are included in this statement of creativity as an obvious display of passion, returning to the love of rescue dogs.
“Heart of Gold”
“Heart of Gold” as a name is pretty self explanatory. “I hope to be one day the person my dog thinks I am”. Dogs, animal companions, possess never failing, never faltering, never ending hearts of gold. Through abuse, fear and cold, they still yearn to love and be loved, to trust and be trusted. Pit-bulls especially are said to possess hearts of gold and I’ve never met a pit-bull that I wasn’t forced to rename “sweetheart” due to intense tail wags, pleas for cuddle-time and endless sloppy kisses.
“Rolling in the Leaves”
What dog Who doesn’t love rolling in the leaves? Or eating them. Or declaring war on them. Or at least peeing on them. Leaves are awesome.
“echoing the colors of autumn leaves Moo loves to roll in and crisp blue fall skies”
“Chasing Squirrels in My Dreams”
“Chasing Squirrels in My Dreams” is, in my opinion, one of the stars of this line. It is so unique and very complex and so much thought has been put into it!
For example, this polish was inspired by Moo’s love for chasing the squirrels that tickle her in her dreams. “inspired by Moo’s leg waving, tail thrashing, “woowoowoo” dreams – I’m pretty sure she’s chasing squirrels! The polish is reminiscent of a dark, cool forest, with the added purple shimmer giving it a slight dream-like and magical feel”. That is does. That it does.
Faithful friend to the end. With hearts of gold, could anyone ask for a better companion? No matter what you do to a dog, no matter how many bad days you have, no matter how many days you go without a shower, they still love us with a loyalty unsurpassed. They stay with us through heart-ache and poor house, and would never think of telling your secrets to anyone.
Now on to the swatches!
Heart of Gold, a tribute to the pit bull’s astonishing capacity for love and devotion, contains:
- gold bars
- large root beer brown hexes
- small gold hexes, small golden hexes that flash with iridescence
- a very generous sprinkling of micro root beer brown squares (that you can actually tell are squares on the nail!) and best of all,
- large heart glitter <3
This polish was a dream to apply and all swatches show *no* dabbing, placement or fishing. I noticed no curling or bleeding.
One Coat of “Heart of Gold” over “Chasing Squirrels in My Dreams”
Two Coats “Heart of Gold”
Rolling in the Leaves was a bit of a surpriser. Upon close inspection this lacquer is a glitter bomb completely suspended in brilliant copper flecks. And that is intentional usage of the word “brilliant” – this stuff intensely shines and is so rich!
“RitL” is comprised of:
- gold bars
- large primary green hexes
- medium sky blue hexes
- a very generous sprinkling of small sky blue hexes
- swirled into tons of copper fleck
While this polish can be used to layer, it is also incredibly easy to achieve full opaque coverage in just two coats.
Two coats of “Rolling in the Leaves”
I adore the small blue hexes in this polish along with the green. …in fact I adore everything about this one but, man, that sprinkling of small blue really hits this one out of the park.
Living up to it’s inspiration, is “CSimD”.
This complex little bottled dreamscape is murky green-gray creme with a slight duo-chrome & purple shimmer, comprised of:
- Murky creme dark blue-green-gray base
-Tons of gold fleck
-Tons of purple micro square glitter
This one is not a layering polish and is another that is made easily opaque in two easy coats. The formula was slightly gluey, however I was surprised to see that this did not affect application at all! It was a breeze and the finish was completely leveled and streak-freak.

Check out the purple glitter!
This polish dries to a stain finish with a hint of texture prior to topcoat. A top-coat is necessary to make this one look and feel it’s best.
In sun, this polish not only sparkles but the gold pops! Moo travels on the foggy path leading her to the entrance of her squirrel filled dreamland and, bursting through the foggy clouds, springs into a land filled with depth, illusion and magic! …and squirrels. so, so many squirrels.
Bam! Check out that gold!
Faithful Friend is a bright, happy mix reminiscent of the big smiles and excited wags of a four-legged best friend. “FF” is comprised of:
- XL Dark blue hexes
- Large matte and metallic blue hexes
- Large purple squares
- Small fuchsia hexes
Faithful Friend is described as “dazzling” in the Pibble Polish store and I have to agree. The quality of the glitter is awesome and something that gives it an edge.

And deliciously mattified…
And guess what?
There are a total of five polishes available.
Here is Pibble’s picture of the fifth “Grass Swimming”:
This polish was inspired by Moo’s ecstatic, leg-waving, scootching, swimming motions when she’s out in the grass. It always looked like she was trying to do the backstroke on dry land, so it was dubbed “grass swimming”.

Moo’s story is one that I am anxious to tell, and one that will fill your heart. I will be posting individuals posts focusing on each polish in the upcoming weeks and also tell you all about Moo, her heartbreak and the unbelievable love she still posses along with the love and commitment to rescue dogs the creator of “Pibble Polish” exhibits. It just rocks.
