Glittering Elements ~ V.I.P. #9



Glittering Elements ~ V.I.P. #9
Deep purple with holo shimmer and microflecks

Here’s a special polish for you. V.I.P. #9 was a polish that Casey included in orders placed on her birthday back in May. She says there are around 20 bottles in total, and I’m thrilled to be the owner of one of them! :)

Application was really easy and two coats is what it took to make this baby shine. Drying time between the coats is good too.

Here’s a picture taken in the sunshine – it’s just two coats, there’s no topcoat involved just yet.


I also took pictures in my lightbox.


Here’s a low light picture to show what a lovely colour this is and to try and show you the flecks.


I made vertical stripes on it with a silver holo polish from Urban Outfitters and then I sponged some glitter on from H&M’s Snow White series – “Silver Frost”. I topcoated the entire thing, and here’s my final mani taken with flash:


The flash almost makes the glitter disappear so here’s a low light picture too:

The pretties: 

This combines so much of what I like in a polish: Holo, glitter, flecks, purple and easy nail art. I really hope you like it too!


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: holo with flecks
Overall impression: Good colour, nice effect and easy to work with. LE though!
Buy again: Yes – if it was possible

  6. That's so beautiful! The purple color's great and so is the holo effect. The stripes and glitters you added looks great too. :)

  7. beautiful purple holo! i really like that h&m glitter... I never saw those here but I guess I don't go to h&m that often and they probably have different stuff here in Canada anyway

    1. I'm sure they have different stuff in H&M Canada. I usually check out the beauty section when I'm there, because sometimes there are little gems :)
