20140209 glam polish divinity

I have an awesome preview to show you today. I got these polishes in late January and have had to wait patiently to post. It’s been difficult. The GLAM Polish Supernatural Collection includes five gorgeous jewel-toned, jelly-based polishes, each with a mix of flakies, shimmer and holographic glitter. Every single one of these is seriously stunning and they’re available for pre-order TODAY (20 Feb)! See details at the end of the post. Let’s get to the swatches. GLAM Polish Divinity is a dark eggplant purple. I love the deep base with the embedded sparkle.

Galaxy

 

Zoya zenith galaxy 3

Zoya Mosheen (1 coat over black creme) is a special effect top coat with holographic bar glitter and circular (or maybe hexagonal…my eyes aren’t what they used to be) glitter. It’s all iridescent and sits atop a light blue jelly base. . Can you see it in the galaxy nail art?

Zoya Belinda (2 coats) is a dark royal purple foil with nearly invisible shimmer in pink, purple and blue.

Zoya Cassedy (2 coats) is a less chrome-smooth, shimmer-foil than Belinda. (I’m really just making up polish types with these descriptions.) It’s a charcoal and green mix, with a little holographic sheen to it, much like Seraphina below.

Zoya Seraphina (3 coats) is a light silver shimmer. In my notes, I wrote “absolutely perfect”, so my affinity for it is pretty strong. It’s barely holographic, but in the right light, it is nonetheless.

Zoya Dream (3 coats) is the nebula nail art’s starry base. A royal blue jelly with holographic shimmer and small flakies.

Zoya Payton (2 coats) is a wine jelly with the same holographic/small flakie mix as Dream.

I’ve prepared simple galaxy nail art and this time it’s all purple! I’ve used Zoya Payton as a base colour because it’s beautiful and the chunky holographic glitter looks like stars :)

Base colour – I’ve used Zoya Payton because of the holographic glitter in it

White, pink creme and purple creme polish, dotting tool, small detailing brush and topcoat (I’ve used Zoya polishes and Seche Vite topcoat).

Day of the Doctor

 Day of the doctor nail art 01

For the base colour I chose a polish that fits the theme perfectly… Cult Nails Time Traveler – a polish named after the Doctor’s big blue box

On my ring and pinky fingers, I stuck some 1 mm flat backed pearls and painted them copper to look a bit like Daleks!

My index finger is painted with Essie As Gold as it Gets and stamped with W7 Black and a design from MoYou London Plate Pro Collection 10. This is meant to look a bit like The Master’s fob since this is a piece of imagery that really stood out to me back in the days when I used to watch the show. Wasn’t The Master a brilliant character?!

The galaxy nails were created using a couple of polishes including the holographic polishes A-England Rose Bower and Princess Sabra.

20131001 ncla dead end gorgeous

And last, but certainly not least, is Dead End Gorgeous. It’s like a galaxy mani in a bottle. It’s loaded with navy and violet glitter and it’s amazing in and out of the light. My pics don’t do this one justice. It’s a serious winter must-have.
