Glitter Gal Enchanted


It's been far too long since my last post. Life has been manic to put it mildly. Everytime I thought I'd get some time to do some blogging, something else happened! But things are fairly quiet now so fingers crossed I'll get back to doing some regular posting.

First off, I want to show you all a Glitter Gal polish I was sent to try a few weeks ago from R8Beauty (yes, I'm really behind in reviews!). For those of you that haven't already heard of them, go take a look at R8Beauty's facebook page for chances to win and review new and exciting products.

I have been drooling over Glitter Gal holographic polishes since I first started to see them pop up on various blogs but getting them shipped from Australia is a bit beyond my 'saving for a wedding' budget at the moment so I was very excited to be offered a chance to try one.

I was sent Enchanted (GGNP719) which is a very pretty pink holographic shade. On my nails it kind of makes me think of salmon pink.

The first 2 shots were taken in natural light -

The next 2 were taken under artificial light to try and show you the holographic effect (I live in the UK, at this time of year sunshine is rarer than Paris Hilton spending a quiet night at home)

(click on pics to get full holo effect!)

Those of you who are regular readers will know that it's quite unusual for me to wear pink so I wasn't sure how much I'd like this but I have to say that I do really like it! This was helped by the fact that it applies like a dream and has one of the best brushes I've used for a while. These pictures were taken after wearing it for nearly 3 days. No topcoat.

I am now even more desperate to buy some more Glitter Gal Holographic polishes, I am especially in lust with Marine Blue! Maybe I can persuade Maz that nail polish is a wedding essential?!

Hope everyone is doing well, I have more reviews coming up!
