Love, Angeline ~ Angelicious



Love, Angeline ~ Angelicious
Soft lilac creamy base with rainbow flakes and aqua shimmer

Angelicious is a Norway Nails exclusive. I’m not surprised that it’s lilac and not surprised that the name refers to something with angels either. It’s a very pretty polish.

The formula is thick. I don’t usually mind that but since it’s also got a very fast drying time, I actually thinned it a bit before applying my second coat. It covers really well – it was close to being a one coater, which is unusual for such a light colour. I applied two coats to even everything out, and I also applied a layer of Poshé topcoat before taking my pictures.

Take a look at two coats and a layer of Poshé topcoat:


The shimmer is subtle but oh so pretty!


I could even get it to flash a bit of holo goodness!


I wanted to try out my nail vinyls, so I applied a chevron and painted the tips with Ellagee’s Living Just As Free As My Hair, which is a holographic scattered holo. I can’t get my camera to show it correctly no matter what I do, so the tips aren’t colour correct – the ellagee is a bit lighter than the pictures show.

There’s an additional layer of Poshé topcoat on the following pictures:

The Ellagee is NOT colour accurate!

And one last shot:

The Ellagee is NOT colour accurate!


Verdict:
Angelicious is a very sweet, non offensive polish. The shimmer and the little flakes that makes it special – and I really like that I can get it to flash some pretty rainbows too!

  4. It's okay, I guess it isn't really my kind of shade. I do like the blue though :-)
