Ellagee Prototype ~ Cornflower Blue



Ellagee Prototype ~ Cornflower Blue
Cornflower blue crelly with white, black and blue glitters and hexes

Here’s a prototype I bought when Laura from Ellagee offered unreleased prototypes. It hasn’t got a name, so I just call it Cornflower Blue because that’s exactly what it is. I can’t come up with silly names like OPI can, haha!
Wait….how about ‘The runaway train came down the track and she blue’. OPI can have that one for free.

Anyway, Cornflower Blue is a crelly and a bit on the sheer side. I used three coats before I was satisfied. The drying time between the coats was good, no worries there. I didn’t have a hassle with the glitters, and I haven’t done anything to actually place the glitters – they are where the fickle brush of fate decided that they should be.

Here’s what three coats and no topcoat look like:


I like the way the glitters swim in the polish. My silly boyfriend thinks this looks like linoleum, hahaha!


I dapped a bit more glitter on it, just a little bit with a sponge. I used OPI’s In True Stefani Fashion for that. Afterward I used a toothpick and made a random swirl of dots on each nail. I used another Ellagee for that purpose: Chase the Clouds Away. A layer of topcoat finished my mani:


Perhaps I should have left either the dots or the glitter out, but... yeah well.


Here are the three polishes I used:


So do you like this? And do you ever buy prototypes you don’t know what look like beforehand?


Number of coats: 3
Drying time: Good
Finish: Crelly with glitter
Overall impression: Nice pleasant colour, sweet glitters. I wish it was a two coater, I’m so greedy!
Buy again: Probably yes, the colour is unique
