Gelish Trends Life of the Party Swatch & Collection Overview

Gelish Trends Life of the Party is the last color from the collection that I have to show you.  This one is a gorgeous glittery red that reminds me of the ruby slippers in The Wizard of Oz!  I think it’s the best red glitter polish yet.  In some lights it appears to lean slightly pink.  The swatch below shows what it looks like in three coats.  This polish wasn’t as thick as some of the other Trends that I tried and it has a red tinted base, so it wears well on its own.  I seriously can’t stop staring at my nails!

You can view all of the other Trends swatches over on my Gelish swatch gallery page.  I listed the Trends at the top of the page.  I have also written about each of the colors in this line, so you can read my write-ups here if you’re interested in learning more about any of them.  Overall I really like the Trends line.  I didn’t previously consider myself a glitter topper kind of person, but some of these are pretty unique and wear well all on their own without a base color.  I loved them all, except for one… Rough Around the Edges.  That one just didn’t do it for me, but the others are all winners in my book.

The Trends are a little harder to remove than regular gel polish and require a longer soak-off time, so I recommend filing the top layers well with a coarse grit file before attempting your soak-off.  This will make the process go much faster.  You can also try applying heat during your soak-off with the use of a heating pad or warming mitts to aid in the removal process.

Below is a picture of my swatch wheel that contains all of the Trends.  These are three coats each on a white wheel.  The names of each corresponding color are listed below.  You can click this image to enlarge it.

    the Rough Around the Edges looks very different in reality than on the bottle :S

    Yet another of the Trends polishes I must get around to trying. I haven’t been in a glittery mood for a couple of weeks, but have a feeling this might change.

    Meanwhile, I read there will be 7 more trends coming out this year ( that’s literally ALL I know) plus two more collections. We already know about the summer one. No idea what the other one is.

    Thanks for all your swatches. You’ve already encouraged me to buy more than I had originally planned.

      Thanks, Jane! I hadn’t heard about the new Trends yet. I’m sure there will be a fall and/or winter collection coming out too.
