Potion Polish: Vintage


Hey guys! So we're back today with a new to me brand! I've got the Potion Polish limited edition "Potion of the Month" for June to show you! If you're a lover of crellies, flakies, and/or shimmer then you're gonna love this one since it's got a little bit of all that!

Vintage is a creamy turquoise with pink to gold to green multichrome flakies and a pink to gold shifting shimmer. The formula on this one is amazing - silky smooth easy application with full opacity in two coats. This could probably be a one coater for the heavy handed. I tend to work in thinner coats though so I needed two. I did a third just for extra depth cuz y'all know how much I love that third coat. ;) Shown below is three (thin!) coats with a glossy top coat.

You can see how subtle the shimmer is in brighter lighting, it's visible in the above photo but not in your face visible. I decided to use the below photo in a darker lighting so that you could really see that shimmer pop. In the right lighting it's so amazingly gorgeous and I had to include one that really showed it off like it deserves.

So like I said earlier in the post, this is my first time trying Potion Polish and I gotta say I was definitely impressed! The formula on this was excellent and it applied so nicely. Also and this is absolutely irrelevant to the polish, but the website is super cute. The design nerd in me wholeheartedly approves. Anyway! That being said let's get down to release details:

Baroness X: Shift in Space-Time Collection


Hey y'all! It's been a while! Today I've got the Baroness X Shift in Space-Time Collection! This collection is inspired by the movie Interstellar so it's all about shifting space-time, black holes, the 4th dimension and small details from the movie. It's a shimmery and shifty collection that's absolutely gorgeous! Let's get to the swatches!

Event Horizon is a black jelly filled with gold to green to blue pegasus pee, metallic gold flakies, and two different types of green and blue iridescent flakies. Easy formula to work with but based on the nature of jellies wait for each layer to dry before doing the next. This is fully opaque in two coats, but if you're a regular reader here you know I have preference for three coats. Shown below is three coats with a glossy top coat.

Gargantua is a purple jelly with a scattered holo and a metallic copper shimmer. Like Event Horizon it's best to wait for each layer to dry before doing the next. This one is a bit more sheer so you may (probably - unless you do like, super thick coats) need three coats for opacity. Shown below is three coats with a glossy top coat. I know there appears to be a bit of visible nail line in the photos but that was not noticeable to the naked eye.

Paradox is a topper that consists of teal to blue to indigo pegasus pee, with pink to green shifting iridescent flakies and a touch of a large particle holo pigment. So this one is one of my favorites in this collection. It is seriously so unassuming in the bottle and then you put it on and BAM! Instant love. Easy application and looks best over dark colors imho, but let your creativity fly man! Shown below is two coats over black with a glossy top coat.

Singularity is a fuchsia jelly based unicorn pee polish. It's meant to be layered over any color and is apparently close to OPI's Movin' Out (I honestly can't give a first hand account of that). This is a super gorgeous color on it's own, but if you're a person that's bothered by visible nail line (ME!) you're gonna have to layer this. I took two sets of photos for this, one on it's own and one layered over a pink cream.

This first set shows Singularity on it's own. This is three coats with a glossy top coat.

So when I was looking for a base I wanted to find the closest pink cream I could to put under it. ... I learned I do not own as many creams as I thought I did. I ended up going with Pipe Dream Polish's Take it Easy and I actually really liked the results even if it wasn't exactly what I wanted. Shown below is two coats over that with a glossy top coat.

Tesseract is a deep teal based multichrome that shifts bright emerald green to teal to blue to a deep (almost purple) indigo with a scatter of holo flakies and holo pigment. This is my other favorite in the collection and I credit that to it being a new combination of shifts in my multichrome collection. I literally don't have another like it and I have TONS of multichromes. Formula is silky smooth and it's fully opaque in two coats. Shown below is three coats (more depth!) with a glossy top coat.

Ghost of a Space Cowboy is the limited edition that's only available with the purchase of the full size collection. It's a dark gray based multichrome with iridescent pink to green flakies and shifts from teal to purple to pink to gold and finally green. Easy formula and fully opaque in two coats. Shown below is three coats with a glossy top coat.
