Sweet Heart Polish: Disney Duo inspired by POTC
Sweet Heart polish collaborated with Ellagee for the next Disney ride inspired duo. It launches on August 31st and is inspired by the Pirates of the Caribbean themed ride. I was so excited to have the opportunity to review this duo because Disney theme parks are near and dear to me. The box consists of two polishes, a Doubloon keychain and some candies all packed up in pretty red organza bags!
Ellagee's polish is called Drink Up Me Hearties Yo Ho! and is a beautiful golden Doubloon shade that sparkles a heap because it's packed with shimmery micro flakies! I used three coats for opacity yet I think that a single coat would be sheer enough to wear over your favorite dark creams to give them a kiss of gold! The formula was smooth and easy to apply.
Sweet Heart's polish is Inflame & Ignite, inspired by the burning room. A fantastic room inside the ride, filled with the scent of burning wood, raging flames and chaos - even a teetering table and chair that just might come crashing down! This micro glitter is packed with reds, golds, and silvers, plus holographic microglitters. It's opaque in three coats on it's own as shown here or you can use it as a topper over another polish.
The box comes with a cool Doubloon keychain as shown here, and I've done up some proper pirate nail art! I used the Ellagee polish in this set as my base color, stamped it with a Vivid Lacquer stamper and plate VL023 with Konad black, and then topped it all off with the Sweet Heart Polish from this set. These polishes go great together when layered!
I nearly always learn something when I'm researching to write my reviews and this time I learned that Talk Like a Pirate day falls on my birthday every year. I also found this handy webpage, complete with a pirate translator and name generator!
The set launches on August 31st at 2pm Central at both the Sweet Heart Polish shop and the Ellagee shop for $22 plus shipping.
