Glam Polish Festival Collection - swatches and review

Friday, January 31, 2014


I have some stunning polishes to share with you today - Glam Polish Festival Collection. If you have tried Glam Polish - you know how wonderful they are; and if you haven't tried them - you should!

This collection is inspired by the creator's favorite albums and song lyrics. They are gorgeous jelly polishes featuring a mix of iridescent glitter and tiny flakies; and they are simply stunning!

And I would be remiss if I didn't mention the Glam Polish Giveaway!

Let's take a look. All of the swatches are shown with two coats and a top coat unless otherwise noted. The formula is divine. Jellys can sometimes be touchy, but these are a dream.

Diamonds on the Inside - is a stunning deep, mesmerizing purple with a glittery and shimmery finish. The depth of this polish is awe inspiring.

Distant Sun -  is a magical, glittery topcoat. It has iridescent flakes, glitter and holographic micro glitter. Normally I don't oooh and ahhh over glitter top coats. But this one has me doing just that. It is shown over Milani Black Swift.

Fandom Cosmetics - Harry Potter 'Battle of the Seven Potters' partial collection - swatches.

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

 

Fandom - Wikipedia refers to it as " a term used to refer to a subculture composed of fans characterized by a feeling of sympathy and camaraderie with others who share a common interest. Fans typically are interested in even minor details of the object(s) of their fandom and spend a significant portion of their time and energy involved with their interest. OK, that doesn't resemble me at all. And if you believe that, well...

I have a new-to-me nail polish brand today called Fandom Cosmetics. Fandom was created in May of 2013 out of a love for all things fandom. They immerse themselves into ever fandom they represent. The founders of Fandom Cosmetics have met with every manufacturer of their glitters, pigments and base to ensure the ingredients are to their specifications. Glitters were tested for five months before they started selling their polish. Their base is 5-free, vegan and cruelty-free.

The polishes I have for you today are part of a new collection that will be released next month - a limited-edition Harry Potter "The Battle of the Seven Potters" collection. It is inspired by the spell, potion and magical creatures that played a role in that event.

The formula on these polishes was good. It applied evenly and dried relatively quickly. Let's take a look. All of the swatches are shown with two coats and a top coat.

Expelliarmus - is a stunning soft burnt orange with a slight duochrome shift to a rose shade. It is really gorgeous! I think I will be wearing this polish a lot! Make sure you let each coat dry for a couple of minutes before applying the next coat.

Polyjuice Potion - is a shimmery brown that has a lot of gold accent shimmers. It is a micro glitter polish and is completely spell binding! The micro glitters pick up and magically transform every light source.

Thestral - is another gorgeous work of sorcery. It is a shimmery brown with a lot of purple shimmer (which does not show up in the photos.) But trust me... it's there and it's powerful.

Fandom Cosmetics has a huge selection of polishes and nail decals in their online store. Polishes can be purchased for $8.95 for a full size bottle or $4.50 for a mini bottle. Take a look and I am sure you will find the fandom you are looking for. This Harry Potter collection will be released on February 16, 2014.

To keep up with the latest releases and fandom news follow them on their Facebook page.

The Rydell High Collector's Series will be released over the span of three months and was inspired by the movie/musical "Grease." The shades in the collector's series are a mix of bright and neon scattered holo bases with gorgeous shimmery micro flakies.

One word of caution - applying these polishes will have you dancing and singing the soundtrack from "Grease." I think I have all those fun songs stuck in my head. Which is okay I guess, There are worse things I could do. I think I went through the entire soundtrack. My dogs were watching me and I am sure they thought I had completely lost my mind.

Part 1, which I will be showing you today are available for pre-order at $10.95 each.
 
Let's take a look! All of these swatches are with two coats and a top coat. With these polishes you will be born to hand jive! (Okay, I will stop with the references to the soundtrack... maybe.)
 
Summer Nights - is a glorious aqua blue with shimmer and scattered holo. I love this shade. 

"Well-a well-a well-a, huh
Tell me more, tell me more
Did you get very far?
Tell me more, tell me more
Like does he have a car?"

Hopelessly Devoted - is a romantic soft coral/pink. It is loaded with shimmer and holographic particles. 

"My head is saying "fool, forget him",
my heart is saying "don't let go"
Hold on to the end, that's what I intend to do
I'm hopelessly devoted to you"
