Glitterfied Nails: Beautiful Blues
Andrea from Glitterfied nails sent some beautiful shades of blue and a glitter topper to me to review. I found the formulas to be smooth and easy to paint with the wide flat bushes in her polish bottles. Her shop has a nice array of polishes too!
Shall we take a little peek at these blues from her polish line?
First is Tempest which I thought was a blue with metallic green and gold flakes, yet it looked foil-like after application and I could see the shimmer changing color! Its not green and gold, its shifting flakes! This polish really reminded me of something but I wasn't sure what.
After playing with it under different lights, it hit me. I remembered! Its what I saw as I rode in my dad's boat on the lake at the end of the day, as he drove us back to the shore. The last bits of sunlight reflecting on the surface of the water. I miss my dad, and I miss those boat trips.
Isn't it amazing the memories and feelings that surface just while admiring a nail polish? I love this polish for helping me remember those times in my life.
Golden Aquamarine is a turquoise leaning baby blue packed full of gold shimmer. This polish reminds me of a clear blue summer sky, sun shining just overhead. I wore three coats of this one and it does have a few brush strokes but they are not as noticeable in person. The shimmer is very noticeable and eye-catching, several gals at work grabbed my hand to see it! On the flip side of the light reflecting, there in the shadowy areas it looks like a vibrant shade of perwinkle! Cool, eh?
The glitter topper that she sent to me is Special Delivery, a pink and blue matte glitter bomb in an iridescent shimmered base. The shade of pink kind of leans orchid or lavender, but I'm still calling it pink! I tried it out over both of the polishes above and I think it looks great over both dark and light colors.
