Alter Ego Nail Enamel: Swatches, review

Thursday, November 6, 2014


I have some more gorgeous Alter Ego polishes to share with you today! These three beauties are naturally semi-matte - but with a top coat they can be quite glossy!

Let's take a look.

Chocolatier is a deep shimmery chocolate brown shade. If no top coat is used, it dries to a semi-matte finish. Add a top coat to get gloss, shine and lots of shimmer. This is a tad thick. But just barely... If it's too thick for you - add a drop or two of thinner. This is two coats. I am going to show it to you with, and without, top coat.

Desert Storm has tones of brown. Lots of shades of brown swim in a brown shimmery base. I chose to apply it over Chocolatier. But it could be worn on its own. This is one coat of Desert Storm over Chocolatier.

Traffic Lite Tester is a micro glitter polish with metallic red, metallic green and holographic gold glitters. The glitters are tiny and appear to merge with each other. But get close and you can see each and every individual glitter piece that makes this mosaic of color. This is three coats. I am going to show it to you with, and with out, top coat.
