Ellagee ~ Another Notch in my Lipstick Case



Ellagee ~ Another Notch in my Lipstick Case
Cherry red jelly with both linear and scattered holographic effect

Here’s the latest addition to my small but much loved Ellagee collection. When I first saw swatches of Another Notch in my Lipstick Case (ANIMLC) I was like: WOW! You should know by now that I’m a sucker for holos – and I have a soft spot for reds too. So yes – welcome to my stash!

Application was easy and the drying time is really good. I just used my regular base coat, and had no problems with dragging or bald spots – the polish just behaves. I like that! It takes two coats to reach full opacity.

I didn’t apply topcoat yet – you know I’m not done yet anyway! Here’s what two coats and no topcoat looks like. The picture is taken with flash:


Isn’t that just gorgeous?! Here’s another one taken with flash:


The polish is more muted when it’s out of the sun (and flashlights). It’s a bit dusty, but I actually still like it a lot! Have a look for yourself:


Do you also like it in the shade? I do!
Then I made some random dots on it. I made a number of white dots on all my nails, then I dotted ANIMLC on top of some of the white dots. When that was dry I applied a layer of topcoat. And here’s a picture of the final mani taken with flash:


And from a slightly different angle:


Here’s a picture taken in my lightbox. It’s still really cool if you ask me!


Here’s the pretty couple:


I have a feeling that my small collection of Ellagee polishes will grow a bit over time. So far I’ve loved what I’ve tried on. I actually can’t wait to try them again when the sun comes back to my hemisphere :)
