Glittering Elements ~ Magical, prototype v. 1

Glittering Elements ~ Magical, prototype v. 1
Blue to purple duochrome with holo

Today I’m going to show you a prototype from Glittering Elements: Magical – or what ended up as Magical. I’ve read that this prototype should be more purple than the official Magical. I haven’t got Magical though, so I can’t compare the two. I can show you the prototype, which is exactly what I’m going to do in a moment :D

The formula is good and the polish covers in two easy coats. The drying time is good, I’ve got no issues to report.

Here’s what two coats and no topcoat look like. The picture is taken with flash:

The sun! OMG the sun was out! It was early morning so it’s a bit orange, but look how pretty it made my mani look!

Here’s a colour accurate low light picture. The shimmer is so pretty.

I dabbed some glitter onto it: A no name one from Cosmetic Arts. Then I dotted flowers onto it, I used a white from Savina called French White, and a pink Glittering Elements: Holly Jolly Christmas.

Here’s my final mani with flash:

And the low light picture: 

The polishes lined up: 

I quite like this, especially with the glittah!

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Holo with colour shift
Overall impression: Pretty purple. I wish the colour shift was more prominent, or alternatively that the holo effect was stronger.   
Buy again: Yes


  1. Cute flowers and a pretty polish. Yes, there's much difference outside with the start of spring :)))

  3. This is really pretty and I like the nail art :-)

  4. I like the wine red look of it in the sun!
