Alter Ego Nail Enamel: random swatches, review

Monday, November 10, 2014


I have some more gorgeous Alter Ego polishes to share with you today! These four beauties are amazing. They are naturally semi-matte - but with a top coat they can be quite glossy! The glitter top-coat is quite stunning.

Let's take a look. I'm going to show you these with, and without a top coat - except for the glitter top coat. 

Girly Girl is a bubble gum pink shimmer polish. It has tiny flecks of shimmer that really pop with a top coat. This is three coats.

 Plumber is a soft, almost periwinkle blue with a shimmer of pink and purple. This shade is amazing. The shimmer adds tremendous depth and dimension. This is two coats.

Vintner is a gorgeous glitter top coat. It has multi-size shape and color glitter. Tons of purple, blue gold and pink glitter are swimming in a clear base. The glitter rested flat against my nail and was easy to apply. This is one coat, with a top coat, over Plumber.

Well Read is a raspberry red with tons of shimmer. This shade is gorgeous. It's not a true red as it leans toward a pink - but it is breathtaking. This is two coats.

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.

Alter Ego: Gloss48 exclusive duo - Sold on Gold and Rows Her Boat swatches, review

Wednesday, November 5, 2014


I have an amazing duo to share with you today. Alter Ego created this duo for Gloss48. This exclusive duo is available now at Gloss48.

Cynthia, the creator of these beauties, has outdone herself with the shades. This duo can be left as a semi-matte polish, or used with a top coat. I chose to use top coats on these.

Let's take a look!

Sold on Gold is a gorgeous yellow gold polish with shimmer and shine. It's a mesmerizing shade that will have you Sold on Gold. The formula was a bit on the thick side; but not unmanageable. I like my polishes a little thick; but if you don't - just add a couple of drops of thinner. Either way, a good shake will aid in application. This is two coats with a top coat.

Rows Her Boat is a great aquamarine blue. It has shimmers of gold that add to the the overall depth of the polish. It is also a tad thick, but not unmanageable - just add a couple of drops of thinner if it's too thick for your preference. Either way, a good shake will aid in application. This is two coats with a top coat.
