Provided for review
Wow this has been a week full of major milestones for me! Adding on to celebrating my two year water marbling anniversary I also hit 50K follows on Instagram, 3,000 likes on Facebook, 5,000 subscribers and 500,000 views on youtube! With all of this in mind I will be celebrating with a huge giveaway including over 9 contributors! I can’t wait to share it with you all!
But for today I have another exciting thing to share with you and that this is super Limited Edition collaboration including three holographic polishes from Glisten & Glow, Different Dimension and Cupcake Polish along with some silver and gold decals from Nail Vinyls! Thankfully there was some sunlight out today so I was fortunate enough to get pictures that really showed over the holo in each item.
First In Line by Glisten & Glow is a deep dark purple holographic cream that showed full opacity in two smooth coats. The holo is so intense in this beauty and its so awesome to be using a shade from G&G as they started making some in the past couple of months. Of course if you didn’t already know their top coat is the tits, meaning its amazing!
Gaining inspiration from Leslie of Work Play Polish for the placement of the decals I used a boot from each sheet, one of which is gold and the other being silver. Each sheet of the Shop Till You Drop decals has so much to it. There are more kinds shoes, purses, polish bottles, lipstick, perfume bottles and dollar signs; such a great combo of items for Black Friday.
Up All Night by Different Dimension is a dark teal holographic cream that showed full opacity in two smooth coats. The pigment on this shade is out of this world! So intense yet the holo doesn’t get lost in it.
I used a trio of gold stickers from the gold sheet of decals using a perfume bottle, price tag and open polish bottle. Each sheet has three different types of perfume and nail polish bottles, its quite cute.
Trampled By A Shopping Cart by Cupcake Polish is a light lavender pink holographic crelly with bits of fuchsia sparkle throughout that showed full opacity in used three coats. This is the first time I’ve ever used Cupcake Polish and I am quite impressed by the unique quality this color has with the addition of the extra sparkles. Isn’t the rainbowness from the holo so lovely?!
Once again getting inspiration from Leslie of Work Play Polish I used a combo of silver polish bottles and brushes and lipstick decals to go along with this girly shade. I cut some of the lipstick tubes to fit the length of my nail. Leslie did it much better but I tried!
A technique I’ve only done a couple other times before is the ever popular gradient. I decided to try it out with this trio of shades, my only mistake was not putting on some tape before sponging the polish, making mess-up take forever. But hey considering I’ve only done this a few times I saw it blended pretty well. Trampled By a Shopping Cart isn’t as prominent as the other two as it is the lighter of the three shades but I still like the way it all came together.
And I got a little crazy when it came to using the holographic decals overtop of this gradient but who’s to blame me?! I mean just look how awesome and unique they all are!
This collaboration not only comes from four equally talented and unique brands but also from four ladies that have become great friends, which I think is so awesome to see in this amazing community. The items are of great quality and the theme is great for the upcoming holiday season!
As mentioned before this set is limited edition so grab it while its hot! It would make a great addition to any polish or holographic lover collections or as a great present!
This set will be available at 12:01am and 1:00pm on Black Friday Nov. 28th for $40 plus S&H from each indie brands site!
