Glam Polish ~ ELVIS Has Left The Building


Glam Polish ~ ELVIS Has Left The Building
Bright Red Jelly with gold ultra holo glitter & micro glitter

"ELVIS Has Left The Building" is a bonus polish from "The King" collection from April 2016.

The formula is really good and so is the coverage. I'm not crazy about jellies as a rule but this one behaves perfectly. I used two coats for full opacity. The drying time is really good.

I made white, yellow and orange dots on it because I was in a dotty kind of mood.

Here's the final result including a layer of topcoat.

I really like the end result. I think it looks cheerful and happy.

This is "ELVIS Has Left The Building" alone. It's two coats and no topcoat yet. It's obvious that this polish needs topcoat to show its full potential.

Here are the polishes I used today. I really like using stamping polishes when I make dotticures because they cover perfectly.


I bought "ELVIS Has Left The Building" in a blog sale. I was happy to find it, since it's not really easy to get your hands on Glam Polishes here.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Jelly with glitter
Overall impression: Great glittery effect, good formula. I like it.

Pahlish ~ Lycanthrope


Pahlish ~ Lycanthrope
Described as a soft olive green shifting multichrome with scattered holo

"Lycanthrope" is part of a monthly nail polish collaboration box called "For The Love Of Polish". Pahlish and Polished For Days are in the box every month, the third maker changes and for October 2019 it was Emily de Molly that was the third polish in the box. I have already showed you the two other polishes from the box and there are links to them by the end of this post.

The formula is great - which is a fact I have come to expect from Pahlish polishes. I used two easy and fast drying coats for my nails today. Formula-wise it's a great polish, no less.

The Christmas decorations on my nails are water decals. I dapped a bit of glitter in the corner of each nail. I used a Sally Hansen polish for that. I can't see a name on the bottle but it's a clear base with green and white glitter, hexes and bar glitter. It's lovely!

Here's the final result including a layer of topcoat.

This is the same thing photographed with flash. Isn't it lovely?

And here's "Lycanthrope" alone; two coats and no topcoat. I really like the effect!

Polished for Days ~ Monster Mash


Polished for Days ~ Monster Mash
Described as a deep cranberry red crelly with glowing blue-purple chrome flakes

"Monster Mash" is part of a monthly nail polish collaboration box called "For The Love Of Polish". Pahlish and Polished For Days are in the box every month, the third maker changes and for October 2019 it was Emily de Molly that was the third polish in the box - I showed you that polish yesterday and there's a link to it by the end of this post.

The formula was good and the polish covered in three coats on my nails. I considered to leave it at two coats but the third coat honestly made a huge difference to the depth of the colour. The drying time is really good.
  
The stamp is from Lina's stamping plate "Can't Wait For Xmas! 01". I stamped with El Corazón's stamping polish "Sweet Symphony".

This is the final result, including topcoat.

Emily de Molly ~ Purity


Emily de Molly ~ Purity
Described as a dusty purple base with a subtle pink/copper/gold shifting shimmer and iridescent flakes

"Purity" is part of a monthly nail polish collaboration box called "For The Love Of Polish". Pahlish and Polished For Days are in the box every month, the third maker changes and for October 2019 it was Emily de Molly that was the third polish in the box.

The formula was good and the polish covered in two coats on my nails. I was actually surprised that it covered in two coats - I had expected it to be a three coater, but it wasn't. The drying time was really good.

The ugly sweater stamp is from the stamping plate "Celebration BPX-L008". I stamped with Color Club's "Harp on It", which is my favourite silver holo to stamp with.

I think I should have stamped with white instead, then the reindeers would have been more obvious.

This is "Purity" alone; two coats and a layer of topcoat. The flakies are pretty but the colour is a bit too dusty for my likings.
