Glam Polish: Rydell Forever Collection

Tuesday, January 03, 2017 Ashley K 0 Comments


Happy New Year y'all! I have honestly never been more excited to say that phrase in my entire life. I am sooooooo ready to leave that bad juju of 2016 behind and start fresh in 2017! That being said, last year I was aiming to post M/W/F and that really just did not end up working out. This year I'm going to switch to Tuesdays and Thursdays with some extra posts thrown in on the weekends when I have time. To kick this year off we've got swatches for the gorgeous Glam Polish Rydell Forever Collection that is releasing this Friday! If you haven't already guessed, this collection is based on the movie Grease! Saddle up because this is a seriously image heavy post!

Go Grease Lightning is a bright red jelly with iridescent flakies and holo microglitter. This is a warm red and I feel like it definitely pulls more of a blood orange red in photos than it actually is because of my skin tone and how it has a tendency to pull warm colors. It applies nicely with no issues and I did three thinner coats to make sure my visible nail line wasn't visible, but if you're a bit more heavy handed you could achieve opacity in two coats. Shown below is three coats with two coats of glossy top coat (I like the extra shine).

It's Electrifying is a vivid green jelly with iridescent flakies and holo microglitter. So this is a bit brighter than your traditional Christmas green, but in my opinion this is the perfect green for Christmas. It's bright and reminds me of holly bushes even though it's definitely brighter than holly bush leaves. I keep imagining this and Go Grease Lightning making the cutest little holly nail art. Application on this one was nice and smooth too. I again did three coats to make sure my visible nail line was covered, but you could very likely achieve opacity in two coats. Shown below is three coats with two coats of glossy top coat.

Oh Sandy! is a bright lilac purple crelly with iridescent shifting flakies, glass flecks, and holo microglitter. This is one of my favorites from the collection. I love the combination of purple and the iridescent flakies. So gorgeous together! Just like the others application is smooth on this with no issues and opacity can be achieve in two coats. Shown below is three coats and two coats of a glossy top coat.

Peachy Keen, Jelly Bean is described as a bright magenta jelly with iridescent flakies and holo microglitter. I think I'd actually call this more of a watermelon pink though. Application was smooth and opaque on this one as well (are you sensing a trend yet?). Full opacity can be achieved in two coats, but shown below is three coats with two coats of a glossy top coat.

Rockin' an' Rollin' an' Whatnot is a space gray/gunmetal 12D holographic polish. Now, from what I understand the 12D part means it's a bunch of different holo finishes combined. Application is nice and smooth on this polish, but it is a microglitter so it dries with texture and is a pain in the butt to remove. So maybe wear a peel off base coat if microglitter removal is not for you. This is opaque in two coats, but as always I did three just to doubly make sure my visible nail line is not visible. Shown below is three coats with two thick coats of glossy top coat. You will need at least two layers of top coat for a smooth finish on this one.

Summer Lovin' Had Me a Blast is a cerulean blue crelly with iridescent shifting flakies, glass flecks, and holo microglitter. This blue absolutely reminds me of the gorgeous blue water down in the Caribbean. LOVE. SO MUCH LOVE. Application is nice and smooth and like the others this can be opaque in two coats, but I used three. Shown below is three coats with two coats of glossy top coat.

Tell Me About It, Stud is a boysenberry/wine 12D holographic polish. Application is easy with this one too and the opacity is excellent on it. Two coats and you're good to go. This is a microglitter polish so it will dry textured though and removal is a bit of work. Shown below is three coats with two thick coats of a glossy top coat. You will need at least two layers of top coat for a glassy finish.

Too Pure To Be Pink is a delicate baby pink crelly with iridescent shifting flakies, glass flecks, and holo microglitter. Application was easy on this one too, but I do recommend three coats for full opacity for this one. Shown below is three coats with two coats of a glossy top coat.

You're Cruisin' for a Bruisin' is a navy blue 12D holographic polish. Application is nice and easy with this one and opacity is not a problem either. Easily full coverage in two coats, but keep in mind this is another microglitter and so it will dry textured and be slightly harder to remove. Shown below is three coats with two thick coats of a glossy top coat. You will need at least two layers of top coat to achieve a smooth finish.
