Glam Polish Fantasia Flakies
Compliments of the season, lovelies!
Hope everyone had a joyous Christmas with good food and great company.

On the nail front, the Christmas mood was elevated when I received these resplendent polishes from Glam Polish via Mei Mei Signatures for review. Glam Polish is an indie nail polish label, handmixed in Australia. The shades and effect are perfect for this season. The review packs came in pairs, tucked in pretty purple organza gift pouches - 4 of the 6 polishes in the Fantasia Flakies Series.

Warning: Photo-heavy post ahead.

Fantasia Flakies
| fantəˈziːə |
"A thing composed of a mixture of different forms or styles; early 18th century: from Italian, 'fantasy', from Latin phantasia" - Oxford Dictionaries

This collection features 6 multichrome flakie top coats. Previous flakies that colour-shift were translucent and most definitely need a base colour. These are more metallic and glittery in nature. They are also more intense and jewel-toned in colour. Like the title of the collection suggests, the names of these polishes reflect the astro-fantasy nature of the collection.

The ones not included in this review are Arcana Dark and Harmony Wind.

Here's a closer look at the individual beauties.

Dreamscape
"A compound word made up of the stems dream and landscape meaning a fantasy world or an abstract/oneiric land." - Wikipedia
Glam Polish DreamscapeI am totally in love with this one and could not resist but to try this on first. It's mainly bronze-y gold-to-green shifting base with strong dashes of magenta and some blue flakes thrown in. The combination is a fantasy in a bottle.

In a single coat, over base-coated bare nails:
Glam Polish DreamscapeA good mix of larger flakies are interspersed between smaller shards, and a nice, even amount got onto the nails in one coat. The formula is easy to work with as well. This is consistent with all the other 3 polishes ahead.

Close-up:
Glam Polish DreamscapeEven without a base colour, the colours from the flakies pops. I love how it, on its own, looks like shattered stained glass.

I like experimenting how they fair full-on without a base colour. Here's how they look (from left to right) in 1, 2, 3 and 4 coats (without topcoat):
Glam Polish Dreamscape3 coats give a pretty decent coverage. But if one is obsessed about not having any bare nails showing, even 4 coats will not help.
The flakies lay flat and smooth on the nails. However, at 4 coats, it did get slightly bumpy, possibly from the overload of clear suspension base these flakies come in.

In 4 full-on coats, with topcoat:
Glam Polish DreamscapeGlam Polish DreamscapeLove this for Christmas! The highlights show the green shift, the midtones, gold and the shadowed areas is where the magenta flakies play.

Close-up:
Glam Polish Dreamscape macroLove how this close-up shot projects a fantasy garden feel!

Moving on to...
Comet Storm
"Comet Storm is a level 100 mage talent. It is granted to Frost mages choosing <span class="nobreak"><span class="nobreak"><span class="linkicon">. Comet Storm calls down a series of 7 icy comets on and around the target, each of which does (41.25% of Spell power) Frost damage, split between all enemies within 4 yards of its impact point." - Gamepedia
Glam Polish Comet Storm
Made up of predominantly purple flakies, this one shifts to green and blue, with sprinkles of blue, green and magenta flakes in the mix.
The name references to a World of Warcraft (and Magic: The Gathering) spell, and a comet storm also refers to a bunch of suicidal comets that shoot themselves toward the sun (scratches head, but moves along).

1 coat over bare base-coated nails:
Glam Polish Comet StormIt is very similar to Dreamscape formula and coverage-wise. However, the main colour, purple, steals the thunder in this mix.

Close-up;
Glam Polish Comet StormIn this shot, the green-gold shift is more evident. Also, love the large blue flake/ shard on the nail line!

A comparison of 1 to 4 coats of Comet Storm, without topcoat:
Glam Polish Comet StormAs with Dreamscape, 3 coats provide a pretty lush coverage, but the nail line is still visible. WIth 4 coats, some bare nail is still visible, but is too thick to continue with another layer of the polish.

4 full coats, with topcoat:
Glam Polish Comet StormThe shift is more obvious on the index nail (left), though the overall mix of flakie colours look pretty magical.

Close-up:
Glam Polish Comet Storm macroAgain, a macro shot shows the colour shift better. This one looks like coloured gems piled onto each other. 

I received these 2 shades first, and I could not resist a flakie gradient with them.
Glam Polish Dreamscape x Comet Storm gradientThe top is Comet Storm, while tips down is layered with Dreamscape.

On to the next...
Star Shadow
Glam Polish Star ShadowAll references lead to an RPG game or a Japanese manga animation series. But more importantly, this multi-chrome polish features a teal blue dominant shade that shifts to purple and, in certain lighting, green-gold. It also has blue, magenta and gold flake shards in the mix.

1 coat over bare base-coated nails:
Glam Polish Star ShadowThe formula and coverage remains consistent with the earlier two. It is like a blue mirror to Comet Storm. 

Close-up:
Glam Polish Star ShadowA comparison of 1 to 4 coats of Star Shadow, without topcoat:
Glam Polish Star ShadowAgain, the coverage of each coat is similar to the first two.

And in 4 full-on coats, topcoated:
Glam Polish Star ShadowThe teal-blue/ green shades and shifts dominate the look of this polish on the nails in most angles.

Close-up:
Glam Polish Star Shadow macroEven in the macro shot, the purple shift is extremely subtle. Majority of the area shows the teal-blue green shifts.

And lastly...
Eternity Dragon
Glam Polish Eternity DragonLike with Star Shadow, any reference I tried locating leads to Dragon Eternity, a MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game). 
Eternity Dragon is mad eup of predominantly bronze-gold to gold-green shifting flakies, with tiny bits of bronze, magenta and blue flakes.

1 coat over bare base-coated nails:
Glam Polish Eternity DragonWith a single coat, the colour shifts are barely visible, as the gold overpowers. But I don't mind, really. It is such a rich, opulent tone.

Close-up:
Glam Polish Eternity DragonIn the light, it looks so luxurious, with the subtlest hint of green shift.

Comparison of 1 to 4 coats, without topcoat:
Glam Polish Eternity DragonNeedless to mention, the formula and coverage is consistent with its counterparts in this review. Notice the large piece of flake on the pinky (far right). Love!

In 4 full-on coats, with topcoat:
Glam Polish Eternity DragonAnd a close-up:
Glam Polish Eternity Dragon macroOf the 4, Eternity Dragon shows the least colour shift, though the colour intensity and brightness is a notch above (ie. need sunglasses).

And because this came with Star Shadow, I had to do a gradient:
Glam Polish Star Shadow x Eternity Dragon gradientI love that these shades together look dragon-inspired.

As these are meant as overcoats, I layered 1 coat of each over a stark black crème; a-england Camelot, finished with topcoat.
Glam Polish Fantasia Flakies over blackFrom left:
♥ Eternity Dragon
♥ Dreamscape
♥ Star Shadow
♥ Comet Storm

Glam Polish Fantasia Flakies over blackLOVE the jewel-toned colour contrast with black, but I'm bummed that the intense sparkles over black made it impossible for my camera to capture the flakies' details. It made them look like shimmers when, in real life, they are shards of flakes with distinct outlines.

Final Thoughts
The formula for all of these is a breeze to work with, as long as one does not apply too thick a layer to try to get as much coverage in the least amount of coats *guilty*. It is rather good to know that these polishes get off the nails with less hassle than glitter polishes. The shades and sparkles are luxe, but my hands-down favourite is Dreamscape.

Here's a parting shot with all 4 multichrome flakies on the nails, in somewhat of an irregular gradient:

Born Pretty Store Nail Accessories (Part III)

Born Pretty Store Nail Art AccessoriesWarm greetings lovelies!

I'm back with the 3rd installment of Born Pretty Store's nail art accessories review, kindly provided by the online Hong Kong based retailer. To read parts 1 and 2, head on to the links below:
Part I (3mm Mini Round Patterned Metallic Nail Studs)
Part II (Gold 3D Blooming Flowers Patterned Nail Stickers)

BornPrettyStore.com is based in Hong Kong and has been around since 2007. The online retailer has grown from stocking nail art accessories to in-house polishes, accessories, jewellery, cosmetics, beauty tools and even cell phone accessories. They ship internationally, for free! Hit this link for more information.

In the spotlight today is a Nail Stamp, also known as water decal transfer. The design I picked out for this review is a multi-coloured neon waves motif.
Born Pretty Store Nail Art Water Decal Transfer #14402Here's how the actual piece looks out of the packaging:
Born Pretty Store Nail Stamps #14402The actual usable size of the decal is 3.5 x 2.5cm, which is not a lot. It's probably enough to cover 1 mani (10 nails), or more if intended only for accent nails per mani.

The back of the packaging contains an illustrated instructions on using this decal.
Born Pretty Store Nail Art Water Decal Transfer instructionsInstead of dipping the decal in a bowl of water to remove the film, then pick and place with a tweezer, this alternative method involves sponging the decal over the nails. 

HOW
1 Paint nails with the base colours and let them dry completely. I waited around 20 - 25mins.
Base polishes for Born Pretty Store Nail Art Water Decal #14402Polishes used (over Poshe Nail Strengthening 4-in-1 Treatment base coat):
OPI Can't Find My Czechbook (blue on tips)
Catrice Cosmetics C02 Mermaiday Mayday, limited edition (glitter on sheer blue jelly base)
OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls (off-white crème)
Glam Polish We Go Together, limited edition (neon yellow with subtle holo)

I've done one on the middle finger. The rest of the tutorial is based on my ring finger.

2 Using a pair of scissors, cut the decal according to the size and/shape required.
Born Pretty Store Nail Art Water Decal #14402I only needed a small strip over the white base on my nail.
The neons waves are about 80-85% in opacity, hence best paired with a light-coloured base polish. The white areas seen in the decal are transparent when separated from the white backing; something to bear in mind when planning the mani.

3 Remove the transparent protective film from the top of the neon motif.Born Pretty Store Nail Art Water Decal #14402Here, I'm illustrating with the original uncut piece, as it's pretty challenging doing it with the small strip. The protective film protects the sticky decal from damage and dirt.

4 Place the decal on the nail where the motif is supposed to sit, motif side facing down.
Born Pretty Store Nail Art Water Decal #14402The stickiness of the decals will ensure the decal sits in place while you move on to the next step. If the placement is wrong, you can still lift and adjust the placement without damaging the motif (only if the base polish is completely dry).

5 Using a damp sponge or towel, dab over the white backing of the decal until the decal is completely loosened from the white backing.
Born Pretty Store Nail Art Water Decal #14402Do this gently, and as many times as it takes for the decal to be fully loosened from the backing. With a sufficiently damped sponge or towel, it should only take around 5 - 7 dabs.

6 Once completely loosened, slide the backing off the decal and nail.
Born Pretty Store Nail Art Water Decal #14402If completely loosened, it will slide off with ease. Trim the decal with a small scissors if any part of the decal sticks out from the nail.

7 Finish the mani by topcoating the entire nail to seal and protect the look, and to give an even finish.
Born Pretty Store Nail Art Water Decal #14402On the index finger and pinky, the decals were cut into triangles.

For those who prefer a tutorial at a glance, here's a summarised view:
Born Pretty Store Nail Art Water Decal #14402 TutorialAnd that's it!

Final Thoughts
I found this method to be easier than the water bowl gig. Using tweezers to pick and place the decal can be challenging and may sometimes ruin the decal or base polish. I write from experience.

And this Nail Stamp's quality is great! The material is firm and of substantial thickness. Being thicker, the edges may be obvious on the nail, but a topcoat should fix it. Another slight downside is the small size of the decal. One has to use it frugally and with careful planning.

This Nail Stamp/ nail art water decal is available from Born Pretty Store at USD2.45 per piece. There are a total of 8 designs to choose from this listing. Not willing to pay full price? You can get 10% off using this code for readers of this blog: QFX31

Glam Polish Dark Terror Duo + Giveaway!

Glam Polish Dark Terror Duo| ter-ər |
"a state of intense fear", "one that inspires fear" - Merriam-Wester

Hi folks!

Welcome to another Glam Polish Halloween polish post, a limited edition duo exclusive to Mei Mei's Signatures, part II. Following the overwhelming response (and sell out within minutes) of the first exclusive limited edition set (Gruesome Movie Duo review here), Glam Polish and Mei Mei's Signatures decided to create and release a new Halloween-inspired duo within weeks (they must have magic wands to churn something so quickly!).

Named Dark Terror, this limited edition set of holographic polishes is also numbered, and only 140 sets are available through Mei Mei's Signatures. Because the set I received are samples, they are not numbered. Like the Gruesome Movie duo, the polishes in this set have names of horror movies.

Black Water
"Black Water is a 2007 horror-thriller film set in the mangrove seas of northern Australia. It was written and directed by Andrew Traucki and David Nerlich and stars Diana Glenn, Maeve Dermody and Andy Rodoreda. The film was inspired by the true story of a crocodile attack in Australia's Northern Territory in December 2003." - Wikipedia
Glam Polish Black WaterBlack Water is described as a "blackened blue holo with sapphire glass flecks". In the light, it flashes indigo blue in the bottle, along with scattered-linear holo.

When I first saw the name and the polish, the scene from The Ring where Sadako was creeping up from the well came to mind. *shudder*

In 2 coats, topped with Cult Nails Wicked Fast topcoat:
Glam Polish Black WaterGlam Polish Black WaterGlam Polish Black Water
The formula is one of the best of Glam Polish shades I've tried so far. It is almost a one-coater. My overworking on the strokes on a couple of nails caused some dragging (which is entirely due to my obsession to get the fullest coverage), hence, I used 2 coats.

The blackened edges - LOVE! It lives up to the polish's name; deep murky water in the dark of night, with midnight blue reflections.

Close-up:
Glam Polish Black Water macroThe blue flecks are very visible on the nail or in the bottle. However, the sapphire blue still flashes through.

I applied Black Water over 1 coat of bascoat, but it still stained slightly. That was the only slight downside to this dark beauty.

Don't Go In The Woods
"Don't Go in the Woods is a 2010 American horror musical written and directed by Vincent D'Onofrio. The film was first shown in 2010 at single locations in the United States. It was released on Video on demand (VOD) on 26 December 2011, and on general theatrical release in January 2012. The film was made in upper New York state by 5 Minutes Productions, and distributed by Tribeca Film." - Wikipedia
Glam Polish Don't Go In The WoodsDon't Go In The Woods is described as a "dark forest green holo with glass flecks". The green leans towards teal, and is a gorgeous unique holo shade. The flecks are noticeable in the bottle.

It's a cliché phrase that pops into the head (for me at least) whenever a character in a horror/ supernatural film or TV show heads for the woods. The plot is all too predictable, and yet, they never learn.

Here's 1 coat of Don't Go In The Woods topped with 1 coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast topcoat:
Glam Polish Don't Go In The WoodsGlam Polish Don't Go In The WoodsGlam Polish Don't Go In The WoodsI am so in love with this one, from the formula to the shade! Highly pigmented, it's a near flawless one-coater. The blackened effect is less intense than Black Water, but the flecks are more visible and concentrated.

Here's a closer look:
Glam Polish Don't Go In The Woods macroIt does stain after removal, despite having a basecoat on. The problem could lie with my thin and clear base coat (Poshé 4-in-1 Nail Strengthening base coat). 

The shades from Gruesome Movie and Dark Terror sets are distinctively different, yet complement each other to make a great 'Holo-ween' family.
Glam Polish Gruesome Movie and Dark Terror DuosThe above mani was created by dragging blobs of Carrie, Tales From The Dark Side and Black Water randomly through each other with a toothpick over Don't Go In The Woods as the base, finished with 2 coats of Glisten & Glow HK Girl topcoat.

Where To Grab Them
Glam Polish Dark Terror Duo is exclusively available at Mei Mei's Signatures as a set and retails for SGD37.00 per set. This limited edition numbered set is limited to 140 only. Once sold out, they will not be reproduced.

Glam Polish Gruesome Movie Duo

By A Lacquered Affair · September 9, 2014 · 0 Comments ·

"inspiring horror or repulsion" - Merriam-Webster

(In a spine-tingling, creepy tone) Well, hello lovelies...

Here's an early Halloween treat - a limited edition Glam Polish Gruesome Movie Duo, exclusive to Mei Mei's Signatures.
Glam Polish Gruesome Movie DuoAvailable as a set, these shades are inspired by the 2 horror movies they are named after; Carrie (left) and Tales From The Darkside (right), both movies with gruesome imageries.

I was giddy with excitement when these crept up in my mailbox for review. Firstly, I have an affinity for Halloween-themed goodies, or rather, supernatural ones in general. Though not traditionally celebrated here (Singapore), influences over the decades allowed Halloween to thrive commercially. Secondly, the rich, intense tones are to kill for!

Before I bore you to death, let's start off with...

Carrie
"Carrie is an American epistolary novel and author Stephen King's first published novel, released on April 5, 1974... Set in the then-future year of 1979, it revolves around the eponymous Carrietta N. "Carrie" White, a shy high school girl who uses her newly discovered telekinetic powers to exact revenge on those who torment her — in the process, causing one of the worst local disasters in American history." - Wikipedia
Glam Polish Carrie"Carrie - A vampy crimson holo with sparkly red/ gold glass flecks. inspired by Carrie White from Stephen King's novel." - Mei Mei's Signatures

For the uninitiated, Glam Polish is an indie nail polish label helmed by Rachel, and handmixed in Australia. The newer packaging sees her gorgeous polishes housed in 'tall' square bottles printed with the logo and basic information. They hold 15ml/ 0.5 fl.oz of product and come with a atandard sized brush applicator.

Who hasn't read/ watched or heard of Carrie by Stephen King? If you're generations apart from the original, there's a 2013 film remake.

Typically, I shy away from reds, but make exceptions for deeper, vampier shades. Carrie is definitely an exception. This beguiling rich burgundy wine beauty projects a definitive holo effect in the bottle. I just couldn't decide if it's linear or scattered, perhaps both. When tilted away from light source, the red/ gold flecks or bits are tiny but evident.

Here's how it shows up on the nails, shown here in 2 coats over Poshé Nail Strengthening base coat and finished with 1 coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl topcoat:

Glam Polish CarrieGlam Polish CarrieThe formula was easy to apply, and could almost pass with 1 coat. It is that pigmented! The blend of flecks gave the finish some unevenness, and also added a bit of viscosity to the formula, but not in worrying amounts. It wasn't streaky or goopy in application, even as I progressed on to paint more nails.

I could not determine the holo effect in Carrie even on the nails. In some angles, it appears scattered, yet in others, a very soft linear. It could be a blend of both. I can't tell anymore.

Close-up:
Glam Polish Carrie macroNow, the colour...simply seductive! The rich crimson with red/gold and holo bits in what appears as a blackened blood red base gives this creation a delicious depth.

In my opinion, the polish has captured the essence of the antogonist in the movie - her rage and fire brewing within like the red/ gold flecks, the confused adolescent by the wavering holo effect, and the spilled blood by the crimson shade.

To reflect the mood, below is a nail art attempt with Carrie stippled over 1 coat of a-england Camelot with the pointed end of an orange woodstick, top coated. From 1 angle, it depicts dripping blood, and in the reverse, burning flames; both memorable elements in the story.
Glam Polish Carrie over a-england CamelotLet's crawl on to...

Tales From The Darkside
"Tales from the Darkside: The Movie is a 1990 American horror anthology film directed by John Harrison based on the anthology television series Tales from the Darkside. The film, shot in anthology style, depicts a kidnapped paperboy who tells three stories of horror to the suburban witch who is preparing to eat him, à la Hansel and Gretel." - Wikipedia
Glam Polish Tales From The Darkside"A dark purple holo with sparkly gold/ red/ blue glass flecks. Inspired by horror movie with the same title." - Mei Mei's Signatures

I admit. I've not seen this movie. Or maybe I did but don't have an impression. So I do what I usually do - consult Google. The stills from the film really do fit the 'gruesome' tag, maybe even too much for me (who's a Trubie, by the way).

This one's an intense purple shade, with the same holo effect as Carrie. Away from the light, the flecks are less noticeable in the bottle. The holo particles steal the show anyway.

Here's 2 coats of Tales from The Darkside, with the same base and top coat combo as the previous swatch:
Glam Polish Tales From The DarksideGlam Polish Tales From The DarksideAs with Carrie, it could have been done in 1 opaque coat, but a second resulted in a richer finish. The formula glided on smoother as it didn't feel like there was as much flecks, which did not matter anyway, as the holo is stunning.

The holo effect on the nails is identical to Carrie - a very faint hint of a prism, and stronger as a scattered holo, but, nevertheless, gorgeous.

Close-up:
Glam Polish Tales From The DarksideSimilar to Carrie, the base seems blackened, which enhances the purple and holo pigments. I could go on gushing about this polish, but it wouldn't be fair because I'm biased towards most purples, especially darker ones like this.

It's convenient that the shades in this exclusive duo complement each other. I couldn't resist pairing them in a gradient.
Glam Polish Tales From The Darkside and Carrie Gruesome Movie Duo gradientFor holos, I typically stipple one shade over the other with a Q-tip or cotton bud when doing a gradient.

From a thumbnail size, the above mani looked like nails with gradual hematoma, albeit more sparkly. In the spirit of Halloween, I guess it's appropriate(?).

Where To Get Them
Glam Polish Gruesome Movie Duo is exclusively available at Mei Mei's Signatures as a set and retails for SGD37.00 per set. It is limited to 60 sets and each bottle is numbered. It is set to launch on Wed, 10 September 2014, 12:00 midnight (Singapore Time, GMT+8).
