Glittering Elements ~ Fairies Exist



Glittering Elements ~ Fairies Exist
Sea green with holo shimmer and purple flecks

Fairies Exist is from the Fairy Enchantment mystery box from March 2015. I have tried a fair bit of mystery boxes until now, but this is my first box from Glittering Elements. You don’t get any colour clues with these boxes; only a theme. And what to expect of a fairy theme? I didn’t know, but was positively surprised to find this green, which leans a bit teal in my opinion.

The formula is good and the polish covers good. I used two easy coats for this mani and the drying time is good too.

Let me show you what two coats and no topcoat look like in the sunshine:



It’s a pretty colour, isn’t it!


Here’s a low light picture that reveals the purple flecks. It’s so pretty!


I messed it up a bit. I grabbed another polish from Glittering elements. It’s a sample, #77, 3 out of 4. It’s pink with pink shimmer. I sponged some of that randomly onto my nails, and when that was dry I applied a layer of holo microglitter: P2’s “Just Fantastic”.

Here’s my final mani:


Here is a picture of the polishes I used.


I had a bit of a struggle with this mani. I applied a layer of OPI’s Glitter Off basecoat around my cuticles before I sponged. But I couldn’t really get if off again afterwards. I ended up having to keep my fingers under water for a while to dissolve the basecoat. Weird!

I wasn’t completely happy with my mani either. I’m not quite sure why; sometimes it just doesn’t feel right, you know?

  1. I agree it is a bit teal leaning, but not enough to make me dislike it, actually I think it's beautiful :)
