I have a few Glam Polishes to show you today. I picked these up from Rainbow Connection a while back and have just gotten around to swatching them. They are beauties! I'm also debuting my new nail shape today which I'm loving and is especially handy when I break a nail (like today) and have to file them down a little- it's not quite as scary when they're this shape :)
Book of Shadows
Book of Shadows is a gorgeous blue polish with a scattered holographic effect and some blue glitter hexes. It has a slight jelly look to it but applies like a cream needing just 2 coats for opacity. I applied top coat as this dries a little rough and matte. Some photos of this show it to be a lot darker than I think it is, it definitely leans more of a sea blue than a darker navy blue.
High Priestess is a bright turquoise blue with aqua blue glitters and a scattered holographic finish, although not as strongly holographic as Book of Shadows. My photos show this a little more muted than it is in real life, imagine it a touch brighter. I applied 3 thin coats but you could probably get away with 2 if you have shorter nails. I also applied a top coat for a glossy finish.
Tempestarii is my favourite of the three. It's a gorgeous deep aubergine purple with a much stronger scattered holographic finish. There's no additional glitter with this one either which gives it a more 'sophisticated look'. I really wish I could have captured this in the sunshine but the English weather was having none of it. This applied in 2 easy coats and I also added top coat for a glossy finish.
What do you think? I'm so happy these are easily available to us UK girls now thanks to Rainbow Connection (although my purse is less happy about that!).
