Glam Polish: Technicolor World Collection


Hey y'all! Today I have the Glam Polish Technicolor World Collection to show you! This ten piece collection is packed full of variety of vivid, sparkly colors inspired by the costumes, set, and music from the musical La La Land! 

Another Day of Sun is a bright yellow with pink shimmer, a hint of holo, and a dash of fine holo microglitter. I'll be honest, I love this in the bottle, but on my hands... well, this color is not a flattering color on me. Yellows tend to give my pale self lobster hands. I do think this shade would look absolutely amazing on you ladies (and gents) with a darker complexion though! Application wasn't difficult, but it does do that "I look streaky, but I'll actually level out" thing that tends to happen with whites/pastels/some neons. Don't overwork it, it'll level on it's own. I used three coats for full opacity on this, but some of you may be able to get away with two. Shown below is three coats with a glossy top coat. I do want to note that the shimmer got a little lost in my photos, it's definitely more noticeable in person. Very shimmery!

As Long As It's Pure Jazz is a deep plum with a strong linear holo. This color is stunning! It's rich, vibrant and the holo is wowza! Very much digging this color! Application was silky smooth and this could easily be a one coater. Shown below is two coats with a glossy top coat.

Chasing All The Lights That Shine is the glitter topper of the collection, a rainbow mix of metallic multi-size glitter, shifting iridescent glitter, and a hint of fine holo microglitter in a clear base. So this mani ended up looking like a color combo straight out of the 80's and I love it! Application is easy. I did end up having to adjust some glitter placement on the fingers, but I didn't have to fish for the glitter in the bottle. Shown below is one coat over It's A One Woman Show with a glossy top coat.

City of Stars is a lilac crelly with shifting iridescent glitter and fine holo microglitter. This one is so delicate looking. There's something about the color lilac that just makes me think of doilies and tea parties. I think it's just the femininity that the color emanates, This one is a little on the thicker side, but that doesn't effect application. I used three coats to achieve full opacity, but two coats will be sufficient for most people. Shown below is three coats with a glossy top coat.

Here's To The Ones That Dream is a jade scattered holo with shifting flakes, holo flakes, ultra holo glitter and fine micro glitter. Okay, so what this reminds me of might be weird to some people, but this makes me think of that colored rubber mulch that you'd find at a playground but in a green color. I know, I know... that is weirdly specific, right? lol I don't know what to tell you. I'm a strange bird sometimes. I really love this polish though, that shade of green is gorgeous and it has a rather unique finish! Application on this is flawless. Creamy and opaque in one coat. Shown below is two coats and a glossy top coat.

I'll See You In The Movies is a red scattered holo with ultra holo glitter and fine holo microglitter. This one reminds me of a certain pair of ruby slippers. I think it's pretty easy to see why. Application was excellent on this one too with this also being opaque in one coat. Shown below is two coats with a glossy top coat.

It's A One Woman Show is a bright, neon pink with blue/purple shimmer, ultra holo glitter, and fine holo microglitter. I love this pink, it's blindingly vivid and makes me nostalgic for my childhood with all it's neon colors. Application was excellent on this and this is opaque in two coats. Shown below is three coats with a glossy top coat. I was hoping the third coat would help the shimmer pop more in pictures, but it got a little lost in translation. The shimmer in this is definitely more noticeable in person than in the photos.

Someone In The Crowd is a cobalt blue crelly with iridescent flakies, shifting flakies, and fine holo microglitter. This one kind of reminds of like a bird's eye view of a pool party with the way the flakies and holo seem to sort of float in the polish. Application was easy on this one too with it being fully opaque at two coats for most people. Shown below is three coats with a glossy top coat.

What A Waste Of A Lovely Night is a deep indigo with an intense linear holo effect. This one is gorgeous! It reminds me of you're miles from civilization looking at the inky night sky with just the stars twinkling adding that little bit of sparkle to an infinite abyss of darkness. Another flawless one coater application. Shown below is two coats with a glossy top coat.

Why Do You Say Romantic Like It's A Dirty Word? is a light gold intense holo with pink and peach shimmer and holo flakes. This polish is one of those always appropriate polishes. It's a gorgeous neutral color that would be good for any occasion while also fulfilling that need for holographic sparkle. Such a beauty! Application is excellent on this one as well and I think two coats would be just fine for most people, but I did three since it's such a light shade and I have crazy intense visible nail line.

So normally this post would come out before the collection, but I'm behind. Life has been kicking my ass guys. I left for work yesterday morning at 7:30 AM, after all my errands and everything I needed to do after work got done I got home last night at about 12:30 AM. That has been all too common of a theme recently. ANYWAY. All that said, that means that these are already available on the Glam Polish website! These polishes are $12 ea. or $120 for the full set!

Baroness X: Golden Age of Tango Collection


Heyo! I've got the Baroness X Golden Age of Tango Collection to show you! This gorgeous collection of squishy, shimmery neons is a tribute to Demi's fiancé's father who passed away last year. In addition to being one of the world's leaders in radio engineering, he was also in a tango band that toured Cuba during the 1930's! All the polishes in this collection are named after his favorite singers and musicians in the genre. 

To save myself the sake of repeating myself over and over let's just go over some stuff now. First being that neons are super hard to capture a color accurate photo of. I tried my hardest to do so with these and I think I did a pretty decent job. That's why these pictures are in a much lower light than I normally use though. I found that gave me the most color accurate photos, but even now I'm still not quite sure how accurate these will look with someone else's monitor settings. I checked for accuracy on both my computer screen and phone screen and they looked good (save for the purple, but we'll cover that later). 

Second, the formula is nearly identical on all of these, easy to work with and opaque in a few coats (I hear they watermarble and stamp over light colors!). You'll notice I used three coats for all of them, but that won't be necessary for everyone. I was trying to make sure my visible nail line didn't show up in photos because it has a way of being a turd and showing in pictures even when it's not actually visible to the nekkid eye. No white base is needed for any of them and any visible nail line you see in pictures wasn't visible in person or was hardly perceptible. They all dry to that sort of satin-y, matte-but-not-quite-matte, finish. A top coat is absolutely necessary if you want that glossy finish.

Piazzolla is a bright neon pink with purple shimmer. IMO, this one was the hardest to see the shimmer in out of the bunch. It's quite visible in the bottle but it kind of gets lost when put on the nail. At least indoors. I'm not sure how visible the shimmer is in sunlight since that's something I never see lol Shown below is three coats with a glossy top coat.

Lamarque is a neon magenta with indigo shimmer. I think this one might be my favorite out of the collection and that says a lot beating out Simone since purple is my favorite color. Fun fact: This polish almost perfectly matches the shade sixteen year old me chose for her walls in an act of rebellion (I was told dark purple would make my room look too small - so I was like well okay then, find me the brightest shade of pink you can).

BTW, in case you didn't believe me about the bedroom walls:


Gardel is a neon tangerine orange with pink shimmer. So this one was the one I thought was the sheerest of the bunch and it's still opaque all on it's on with no undies in a few coats. That's how awesome these neons are. I will definitely be wearing this to an O's game at some point this season!

Cupo is a neon red-orange/coral with copper shimmer. This one really surprised me with how much I liked it! As we all know, red and/or oranges are not my go to colors, but every once in a while I put one on that I really end up loving and Cupo is one of them! This could be a 1-2 coater for those of you who do them thick! Shown below is three coats with a glossy top coat.

Simone is a neon purple with aqua shimmer. Earlier I said we'd cover this one later about color accuracy. Let me say right from the get go: these photos are not color accurate (but I tried, oh sweet baby Jesus did I try). See, purple is one of those super tricky colors when it comes to photography. The camera lens has trouble processing the reds and blues at the same time since they're on opposite ends of the color spectrum and purples have a tendency to come out looking much more blue than they really are. That is an understatement when it comes to neon purples. My initial photos for this don't look anything like the polish. The red tones were non-existent. So full disclosure: I edited these. Pretty heavily color correction wise. The color you see below is my best effort to make these pictures be as color accurate as possible. And while I like to think that I came close, they definitely aren't 100%. This is a warm, pinkish-fuchsia toned neon purple. I cannot stress enough that this polish is warmer than it appears. Shown below is two coats with a glossy top coat.

Okay, so I decided to try and snap a bottle pic on my iPhone to see if I could at least get a better idea of color and lo and behold, it turns out pretty much perfect color wise. Because of course. lol Now before anyone is like, "Well why didn't you just swatch with your phone?" the answer to that is because I don't like swatching with my phone and color inaccuracy is rarely an issue for me. My phone is big and awkward (I have hands the size of childs) and I'm not spending money on a tripod and macro lens for it when I already have all that and more for my Nikon. ;)

Soooooo, whatcha think? Are you into the shimmer, neon deliciousness of these? I really, really loved that I didn't need a white base to get blindingly bright colors. That's definitely something that stands out to me with these! So, good news! These go on sale just over an hour from now! Launch is today, 3/31 at 3PM PT/6PM ET on the Baroness X website. Individual bottles will be priced at $10 while full size sets (15ml) will be $48 and mini size (8ml) will be $30. There will be 20 sets immediately available and then after those are sold out it will go to pre-order. The mini size will not switch to pre-order. Once the 20 mini sets are gone they are gone.
