Today I have something pretty awesome to show you. I recently discovered an indie brand of nail polish called Ellagee. I had been reading a lot about this brand, and some some of her amazing products. I kind of kept her brand on the list of things I wanted to try, but then something magical happened.... A DISNEY COLLECTION. Yes my friends, a Disney Collection. If you don't know, I live about 15 minutes from Disneyland and have had an annual passport for most of the 22 years of my life (almost 23 though!). I'm a HUGE Disney fan, and go frequently with my friends just to hang out, see concerts, and even get some exercise in. So, when I saw that there was a Disney collection, I pretty much knew I had to have at least some of the polishes.
Anyway, long story short, I ordered some polishes (heh, no surprise there), and then Laura threw in one for review. I have that one for you, and I'll get the other ones up once school gets out! The one I was sent for review is called "Welcome Home". On her website, Laura describes Welcome Home as
Welcome Home is a clear base with purple, red, turquoise, yellow, black, and white glitters. It's inspired by the unique road signs on the Walt Disney World property that always give me that feeling that I'm really finally there, in my home away from home.
I know you all can't wait to see swatches, so here I go! All Swatches have 1 coat of Zoya Goldie as the base, and 1 Coat of Glisten and Glow's HK Girl Topcoat. All fingers except ring finger have one coat of Welcome Home, and the ring finger has 3 as an accent nail.
I started off with an upclose shot of my thumb. I think the Gold was a good base, although the yellow glitters are a little muted.
A little farther away...
All my nails inside. You can see the accent nail well here.
And then I went outside! Sun with no shade.
Last outside shot!
Alright, let's get down to the nitty gritty. This polish is fantastic. It's a glitter topper, so it will look great over any color you wanted to put it over. I chose gold because I like it, but it would really go great over any color. Application of the glitter was super easy. It came off the brush as you see it on my nail. I didn't need to any dabbing or fishing for glitters. Drying time was pretty quick, but standard for a glitter topper.
Overall, this is a must have! I wore this mani for a few days and got tons of compliments on it! If you want to snatch it up, go to www.ellagee.com. Also, check her facebook page for promotions, contests (she has a ton!), and swatches of her awesome polishes. Polishes retail for $8 full size and $4.50 for the mini size. She also has discounts if you buy more than one polish.
Hope you enjoy!
