Glittering Elements ~ 50 shades of turquoise & Enchanted Treasure

Today I paired two special polishes from Glittering Elements. Enchanted Treasure is special because it’s a limited edition polish. It comes from the Fairy box which was April’s limited edition box. 50 shades of turquoise is special because it’s a Facebook group custom, and was only available for the group members.

The first coat looks really sheer – that goes for both polishes. But they build up nicely in two coats. Drying time is good.

I made a gradient on my ring finger and the middle finger. I stamped over the gradient with a motif from Moyou London’s plate Fashionista Collection-13. I stamped with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Whirlwind White.

On my pinkie and my pointed I dotted a small flower.

Here’s my final mani in the sun:



I quite like gradients with stamps over them. It looks really cool.


Here’s a lightbox picture.


The pretty sistas:


I like the colour of 50 shades of turquoise the most. I would have love the holo effect to be way stronger, but you know how greedy I am when it comes to holos.

Both polishes were limited editions and are no longer available.

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Scattered holo
Overall impression: Good quality polishes. Discrete holos, nice turquoise colour.
Buy again: Yes to the turquoise
