Smitten ~ 131 Angstrom



Smitten ~ 131 Angstrom
Dark teal jelly with holo glitter

Summer or winter, I like teal! I know it doesn’t rhyme, but it’s still poetry J Smitten’s 131 Angstrom is a beautiful teal jelly packed with glitter. Oh, did I mention that I love glitter too? Well my fine-feathered friends, I do! :D

The formula is good and the polish covers really well. It’s actually really close to being a one coater, but I wasn’t quite careful enough with the application so I needed a second coat after all. The drying time is really good. The polish dries up a bit dull, but a layer of topcoat makes all the little glitters come to life again.

The sun wasn’t cooperative, so here’s a picture taken with flash. It’s two coats and a layer of topcoat:


Here’s a low light picture. This is so my kind of polish!


I stamped on it. I wanted to try my yellow stamping polish from El Corazon (it’s number 05 btw) and my new stamping plate Illusion Collection-02 from Moyou London.

And wow, I sure made a psychedelic mani today!

Here’s the flash picture:


And here’s the low light picture:


Isn’t it funny how the yellow stamping makes the 131 Angstrom underneath it look green?!

I love everything about this: The colours, the pattern, the final mani!


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Jelly with glitter and holo glitter
Overall impression: I love glitters like this one. It’s nice with a jelly that doesn’t need 4-5 coats to be opaque
Buy again: Yes

I bought my 131 Angstrom from Edgy Polish

  4. It sure looks green under the influence of the yellow based stamping - but so strange maybe :)
