I love birthdays and what better way to celebrate four years of Glittering Elements than with swatches of a handful of its wonderful polishes released especially for the milestone? Casey, the owner and creator at Glittering Elements, has released 10 new colours, two birthday exclusives and a one-off release called Dragonborn to celebrate the occasion. Phew! I also think it’s Casey’s birthday in there somewhere along the way, so happy birthday Casey!
Anywho, I have five of the new colours to show you so let’s jump in!
Jawbreaker is a bright pink scattered holo with purple sparks. If you’re thinking the name sounds familiar, it’s because it’s inspired by the film Mean Girls. This polish is really fun to wear and my favourite from the five I’m showing you. You just can’t go wrong with a scattered holo. Formula-wise, this was a dream to apply and just glided on. I’m wearing two coats with a top coat of Seche Vite.
Darkside is another scattered holo stunner, this time a charcoal/purple base with a blue shift and purple sparks. It’s mesmerising; that’s really the only way I can accurately describe the colour, especially in that macro. Like Jawbreaker, Darkside applied like a dream. I’m wearing two coats plus a top coat of Seche Vite.
Fantasy Island is a turquoise scattered holo. So pretty! It also has the same great formula as the others, so what you see here is two coats with a top coat of Seche Vite.
Ah, Rainbow Craters. It’s a grey scattered holo with holo glitter. It’s listed as an “oops” because the rainbow from the holo doesn’t translate on the nail as much as it does in the bottle. I tried a million combinations of polish/top coats and even took pics of it without top coat – for some reason that holo just wouldn’t play! I even had harsh sun and flash on it, but nope! In terms of its formula though it’s lovely (just like the others) and what you see in my pics is two coats with a top coat of Seche Vite.
Blue Blood is a blue scattered holo with pink glass flecks. I love the macro of this so much. It’s my second favourite polish from the five I’m showing you. And just one last time – yes, the formula of this was easy as well, with what you see here being two coats with a top coat of Seche Vite.
