Glitter Gal 10 to Midnight

 - by Playing with Polish

Ahhh, I love holo polish! Glitter Gal’s 10 to Midnight is a dark grey linear holo polish. It’s a great color, and the holo is visible in most lights which is a big plus. The bottles may be small, but this is good stuff! So far all the Glitter Gals I have tried applied nicely and wore well.

Butter London Knackered

 - by Playing with Polish

Knackered,  extremely tired or a horse that is no longer able to work being rendered into glue or dog food, is a lovely polish. It looks like neither of those things to me. You can be assured that I will not be sending my bottle off to be made into glue! The Butter London website describes it as, “a sheer, twinkling oyster shade flecked with micro glitter particles.” I have no clue why they would describe the color as oyster. To my eye it is a silvery duochrome that shifts from purple to a greyish-green. It is also infused with very fine holographic glitter. Me like!! :-D

This polish is quite sheer. I used five coats , and I still have some VNL. Other than being sheer, the application was very good. Five coats really is a lot though. It might be a good bet for layering. Five coats and a top coat shown.

Ozotic 513

 - by Playing with Polish

Ozotic 513 is a grape purple polish with crazy, awesome  linear holo! :-D At $18 a bottle this polish is pricy, but it does pack a sparkly punch! My husband got me several Ozotic polishes for Christmas. These were my first Ozotics, but they won’t be my last :-D

Christmas Stuff

 - by Playing with Polish

This year for Christmas my husband gave me a number of goodies from my wish list, but he also surprised me with some fun nail stuff. I recently organized my nail polish and labeled items that were “swatched,” “untried,” etc. He checked my nail polish bins and blog to determine what I didn’t already have, so he could decided what to get. He was right I didn’t have them, and I was so touched. I loved the research and thought that went into the gift! :-) I managed to break my thumbnail pretty badly yesterday (and attempted a repair), so hopefully I will still have have length to my nails. However even if I end up trimming my nails all the way down, my sappy self is cheered by my sweet husband. :-D I still wish I was a bit less clumsy though!

I am hoping to try my hand at a bit of frankening in the coming year. It seems like the glitter is going to make a huge mess, but it sounds like fun!

Orly Rock Solid

 - by Playing with Polish

Rock Solid is one of the new polishes from Orly’s Mineral FX collection. It is a dark charcoal with s bit of silver shimmer and holographic glitter. Even with a top coat the polish has a textured finish. It reminds me of asphalt  with little bits twinkling in the sun. I mean it in the best possible way :-D  That may not sound pretty, but it is!

Glitter Gal Lizard Belly

 - by Playing with Polish

Lizard belly has even more awesome holographic goodness than Marine Blue. Although both are polishes I will reach for again and again :-) Lizard Belly is a very dark green with linear holo. I love this color! It looks like green is going to be big this fall. This stunning green would be the perfect accent to any fall outfit :-) At 9ml Glitter Gal bottles are smaller than standard polish bottles, but they manage to pack a lot of glittery goodness into that small package.

Glitter Gal Marine Blue

 - by Playing with Polish

Glitter Gal is an Australian brand. Happily Overall Beauty has started carrying them, so you can order them from a US seller and save on shipping (I always order $50+ anyway, so the shipping is free :-) ). Marine Blue 3D Holo is an awesome bright blue with linear holo which even shows up strongly in indoor lighting – pow! I adore sparkles and holo polish, and this beauty really fits the bill! Just looking at my holo-licious nails make me happy. Good stuff! :-D I am going to try Glitter Gal’s Lizard Belly next, but I don’t want to take this one off!

First I tried applying this over my usual Poshe basecoat and I had a few application issues (mostly dragging and bald spots). I switched to China Glaze Strong Adhesion basecoat and it applied like a dream :-) A top coat did not seem to dull the holo either. Did I mention that this is good stuff!?! Two coats and a top coat shown.

Color Club Revvvolution and Worth the Risque

After a string of overcast days, the sun peeked out. I wanted to do something fun with some major sparkle :-D

Worth the Risque

Worth the Risque is a bright silver holo.

Application was very good, and this polish dries quickly. I used a base coat, so I did get some bald spots with the first two coats. The polish was totally opaque in three coats. Three coats and a top coat shown.

Revvvolution is a beautiful black holo. Yummy!

Application was very good. I used a base coat, but this color did not have the same bald spot issue. I had excellent coverage in two coats. Two coats and a top coat shown.
