So it's been a hot month - literally and figuratively. If you've been following my Instagram, you know that in July I was back to work full time, I went to Las Vegas for my 5th Cosmoprof North America convention, I've spent plenty of time with my Squish (who is now 3 months old) and then I got a new job! Needless to say, it's been a busy month and I have lots to show you from Cosmoprof - both mainstream booths I visited and the Cocktails and Colors 2015 Indie party that was held in the evening after the convention.
But today, I wanted to show you my new obsession. I've fallen down the rabbit hole that is Glam Polish. This Australian brand puts out SO MANY POLISHES a year and typically I need all the polish. Thankfully, they do have a USA stockist in house so I don't have to pay Australian shipping but that almost makes my wallet weep more. Let me show you the amazing WHAM! from the Knockout Collection Part 2. This is a crazy scattered silver holo that was perfectly opaque in just 2 coats. You heard me! TWO!
I used a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, 2 coats of polish and finished with Digital Nails Ain't Nobody Got Time For That. I was happy that this brushed on well because you never know with all that glitter. Thankfully, removal wasn't terrible either - just let your cotton pad sit for a moment on the nail plate before pushing down slightly and pulling it down off your nail. Don't scrub back and forth with the cotton pad... you'll just end up with glitter on your hands and possible tears in your nails. Patience is key to keep your nails looking fantastic!
I don't even know how to fully describe this color. Silver base, some holo, lots of rainbow reflection, and lots of microglitter. It's fantastic. I love it.
Here in the shade, I felt like the color pulled more gold and while it's still beautiful, you don't get the full holo in your face. It's still a great color to wear and I know I'm going to be wearing it again.
This is inside with indirect light. You can almost see a linear holo on my middle finger but flared out. Happy little holos. If you haven't checked out Glam Polish, you really need to. I just wish maybe they slowed down on the collections!
WHAM! sells for $12 but I purchased the entire collection which gave me a $10 discount (a little over $1 per bottle savings).
Glam Polish can be purchased via their website or through International Stockists. Join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
