Ellagee ~ Ella-Gance



Ellagee ~ Ella-Gance
Cherry red linear holo with purple glitter

Today and tomorrow I’m going to show you a couple of polishes that I have a special relationship to. They are both Facebook customs and the reason they are special to me is that it was me who came up with the ideas for them. I suggested a red holo with purple glitter or purple flecks, and Laura made both. The group couldn’t decide which one of the two they wanted so we got both, woohoo!

The first one I’m going to show you is Ella-Gance. It’s a cherry red jelly holo with purple microglitter. The polish is beautiful in the bottle, and the first thing I noticed when I opened it is that it’s sheer. Damn! It builds up in three coats though and fortunately it has a good drying time, so you don’t have to sit around hour after hour and wait for it to dry.

Here’s three coats and no topcoat taken with flash:


The holo isn’t in your face (damn) but the glitter is super pretty!


Here’s a low light picture. That shows the glitters much better.


I don’t know why the polish made me think of ladybirds, but it did. So here's my final mani: 



 I like it this way.



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

    1. Two coats is what I aim for. I think that three coats often take too long to dry :)
