April 15, 2013Me.Lissa Custom Nail Lacquer to share with you today. I love glitter polishes that can be built up in layers to full opacity, so Me.Lissa sent me three polishes of this variety from her new Great Gatsby Collection to try. The first picture that’s shown for each color demonstrates how they look based on the number of coats applied. From left to right, they show 1 to 4 coats. They all had really good coverage with three coats, they were very easy to apply and the glitter distributed evenly. I swatched these polishes on their own, but they would also work great as toppers over other colors. Visit the Me.Lissa Etsy store to purchase these polishes. They are limited edition and will only be sold as long as supplies last, so get them while you can!
Struck Upon a Star has a purple tinted base and is loaded with different colored glitter in a variety of shapes and sizes, and some of them are iridescent and holographic. There are also holographic stars in the mix. I was a little worried when I first saw this polish that the stars might not lay down well, but I didn’t have any issues with them at all. After applying three coats and a top coat, my nails had a nice glassy finish and the holographic effects were very cool.
I Did Love Him Once has a pink shimmer base and red, black, and white square and hex glitters. It also has some bar glitter and red hearts. I had to do a little fishing to get the hearts, but I like that you could wear this with or without the hearts if you choose.
Valley of Ashes has a grey base with a silvery shimmer and is loaded with black hex and micro glitters. This might be my favorite of the three since I think it’s very versatile and could be worn with almost any outfit. (Yes, I try to match my nails to my clothes LOL).
