Ellagee's Vacation & Three Years of Sparkle

***Press Sample***

I spent all of yesterday - ALL OF IT - thinking it was Thursday.  When you're a stay at home mom and your hubs is out of town, all the days flow together, and don't even ask me the date.  And this isn't the first time that's happened :P  If I didn't have this blog, I'd probably float in this dateless dayless world.

But enough about that nonsense - let's get to some polish!!

Ellagee is one of my favorite indies.  Her polish has great formula, she comes out with some stuff that's on par with what's popular, but a lot of stuff that's unique.  I love that :)

She sent me two gorgeous polishes that I somehow let slip by without purchasing and asked me to swatch them.  Who am I to say no to one of my favorite indies?!

I'll show you the first stunner - Vacation

Direct Sunlight - Holoooooo!!!!

Vacation is a stunning nude/gold-leaning holo.  It's just...I's perfection.  I love it, it has become my new go-to holo nude.  It applies super smoothly, opaque in 2-3 coats (depending on how thick you apply them), and dries in under 5 minutes.  I love it with black stamping, and will have to go back and do another mani with black stamping over every nail.  And I tell you, the holo in this is ASTOUNDING - it's a huge distraction when outside and/or driving.  It should come with a warning label.

And here we have Three Years of Sparkle

Three Years of Sparkle is a gorgeous berry/magenta-ish jelly packed with, well, SPARKLE!!  Same easy application, same 2-3 coats to make it opaque.  And same amount of distraction - holy wowzers.  The sparkle in this is less holo, but still BAM!  It's really striking, and again, needs a warning label or something.  I sponged it on over Vacation on my ring finger using vinyls from What's Up Nails, and I think the two go super well together.  They make a great distraction team :P

These two lovelies are available for purchase now at the shop link below!

So tell me - what do you think??  Do you own either of these?  If not, do you want to? :D  Let me know in the comments!


Polish was sent to me by the maker for review purposes, as I have provided above with full disclosure and 100% honesty.
