All Sparkly And Gold is dense gold microglitter in a clear base.
You could wear All Sparkly And Gold as a glitter topper, but I wanted to see it on its own. Three coats was enough to give me pretty decent coverage and this sparkle is INSANE. I kept wiggling my fingers around and going "oooh!"
I can't really call this full-coverage, since there's a hint of nail line still showing, but...come on...who's gonna see that over the massive sparkle?
Ski Slope Sweetie has a white-tinted base and is densely packed with fine gold microfleck shimmer.
I keep buying polishes like this...and they're never quite what I want them to be. I'll have to do a comparison sometime, but I have at least three others along the same basic lines as Ski Slope Sweetie. This is four coats and I still have pretty major VNL. It's not anywhere near as white as I wanted, but I think it's more flattering than some of the similar shades I own.
I won't be wearing it on its own again, but I can see myself wearing it over a nude.
Wondrous Star has white gold microfleck and small black hexagonal glitter in a clear base.
Like the other two, Wondrous Star could be layered. Probably even should be, but I wanted to see it on its own first. This is four coats and...it's...odd. I have mixed feelings about it. I did a layering test over a cream and I didn't like the result. The microfleck is so dense and the glitter is so sparse that one coat looks kinda awkward over a cream, with just a few bits of glitter among so much shimmer. More than one coat starts to obscure the base color. On its own it doesn't do a great job covering my nail line and the way the flecks cover the glitter looks a little strange up close.
I feel stupid saying this, but I like it way more from further away. I tend to put my hand right up near my face when I ogle my polish, but at arm's length the two different aspects of Wondrous Star don't look like they're fighting anymore. They come together into something like a glittery foil and I really like it!
|my holo xmas tree's useful as a festive background, no?|
Bottom line: All three should probably be layered over a nude. I really love the intense goldness of All Sparkly And Gold. Wondrous Star is a little strange up close, but beautiful and fairly unique. Ski Slope Sweetie is sheerer and less white than I'd have liked, but I want to try it over a nude sometime to see how that changes it.
Did you buy anything from this collection? Which do you think I should look for on my next nail supply trip?
