My quest to try as many indie polishes as possible is making my wallet sad :( What with the one day openings that people like Pam's Girly Bits and Dollish Polish keeping having and the general unavailability of Lacquistry and Nerd Lacquer polishes, anything that I can get my hands on means wallet pain. Polishes which are a little easier to get a hold of but no less awesome are Pretty & Polished...polishes. That was a lot of the same word in the one sentence, oh well. Anyway, I ordered a bunch a while back so let's take a look at two of them, Elvis' Pink Cadillac and Power House, two coloured glitters.
First up, Elvis' Pink Cadillac is a soft baby pink with a ton of black glitter and let me say, the combination is greay. Application was really nice with opacity in three coats. What I liked about this polish is not only the black glitter which is always welcome but how the layers of polish means that the glitter peaks through at different strengths. It's a really pretty polish, loooool. Cos that's the name! Hur hur.
Next up, Power House. I started with two coats of American Apparel L'Espirit, a nice pastel purple. I'm constantly surprised at how good the American Apparel polishes are. They always cover nicely and are opaque in two coats. Next, I added two coats of Power House. This once was a little trickier to work with as the glitter is very sparse. I had to fish around for the larger pieces of glitter. Once on though I really like the effect the glitter has. Huge pieces of glitter are always a winner with me. I'd wear full sequins if I could find a way to make them stay.
|Holy giant glitter, Batman!|
The Verdict: I like both these polishes although Elvis' Pink Cadillac just a little more. They're both unique, pretty and packed with glitter which are all winners in my book :)
