Monday, March 06, 2017 Ashley K 0 Comments


Hey guys! You guys like my three-in-the-morning-I-can-barely-see-but-I'm-gonna-throw-this-collage-together-anyway header this post? I think it came out alright. I could have blended a little better but it was late and I was tired. Anywho! Today I've got the Glam Polish Mythical Creatures Collection to show you! This is a ten piece collection of shades inspired by creatures from the movie Fantastical Beasts and Where to Find Them, so - as you've already guessed - this post is pretty long and image heavy. Let's dive right into it then. Onward Buttercup!

Case Full of Magical Creatures (inspired by the Fwooper) is described as a plum tinted jelly with iridescent shifting glitter, shifting metallic flakies, and fine holo microglitter.  I'd definitely say this leans toward the more pink side of plum though - like a plummy magenta. Formula was silky smooth to apply, but removal is a pain (glitter will do that). Full opacity can likely be achieved in two coats, but I've found that I typically work in very thin coats so it took me three. Shown below is three coats with a glossy top coat.

Dougal My Demiguise (inspired by the Demiguise) is described as a silver holo base with iridescent shifting glitter and and various sizes of holographic glitters. Application was easy with this one too but like all other glitter polishes in the world, it was kind of a pain to remove. Full opacity in three coats for this one. Maybe two if you work in thick coats. Shown below is three coats with a glossy top coat.

Good Show, Mr. Kowalski! (inspired by the Erumpent) is described as a gray crelly with iridescent shifting glitter and fine holo microglitter. Okay, so I know it looks like there is so visible nail line going on there. That was not visible in person. At all. Not even a smidge. So I'm not sure why it's showing up in photos. Probably just to be a jerk. Anyway! Application was easy with this one too, but again removal was a pain. Full opacity in 2-3 coats. Shown below is three coats plus a glossy top coat.

I Think Your Egg Is Hatching! (inspired by the Occamy) is described as a teal jelly base with iridescent flakies, iridescent glitter, shifting metallic flakies, crimson shimmer, and fine holo microglitter. This one is my favorite of the bunch! I love how complex it is! The base is teal but all the flakies and shimmer make it appear rather blueish. Applies like a dream, silky smooth and opaque in two coats. Removal of this one was easy peasy. Shown below is two coats with a glossy top coat.

Much More To You Than Meets The Eye (inspired by the Graphorn) is described as a dark mauve crelly with iridescent shifting glitter shifting metallic flakies, and fine holo microglitter. This a really pretty purple and again, I'm not sure why it's looking a little thin around the tips. There is no visible nail line in person. Application was easy with this one too, achieving full opacity in two coats. Removal is again a bit of a pain because of the glitters. Shown below is three coats with a glossy top coat.

Newt... I Don't Think I'm Dreaming (inspired by the Mooncalf) is described as a blue tinted jelly with iridescent shifting glitters, iridescent flakies, and fine holo microglitter. This is a very delicate looking blue. Almost like an icy baby blue. This one was a bit sheerer and you may or may not be able to achieve full opacity in two coats. Again, there is no visible nail line in person. Can I just stop telling you that every polish that has these iridescent glitters is a bit of a pain to remove? We've established that by now, right? Shown below is three coats with a glossy top coat.

Paws Off What Doesn't Belong To You! (inspired by the Niffler) is described as a black jelly with iridescent shifting glitter, shifting metallic flakies, and fine holo microglitter. Application was easy with this one too, reaching full opacity in two coats. I did three for added depth. Shown below is three coats plus a glossy top coat.

Swooping Evil (inspired by the Swooping Evil) is described as a dark blue jelly with iridescent flakies, metallic shifting flakies, iridescent shifting glitter, and a fine holo microglitter. Application was no problem on this one either with full opacity being reached at two coats. Again, I did three for added depth. Shown below is three coats with a glossy top coat.

That's a Bowtruckle... Right! (inspired by Picket the Bowtruckle) is described as a bright green jelly with iridescent shifting glitter and fine holo microglitter. This shade worked surprisingly well on my skin tone! I say every time I do a green/orange/yellow how finicky my coloring is with them so it's always pleasantly surprising when they play nice. Especially bright greens. Man, I love me some bright green polishes but they usually do not love me back. This one does though! Application was super smooth on this and opacity is best achieved at three thin coats imo, but can likely be done with two depending on your application. Shown below is three coats with a glossy top coat.

You Are Our Only Hope, Frank! (inspired by Frank the Thunderbird) is described as a clear base with iridescent shifting glitter, shifting metallic flakies, and a fine holo microglitter. This is my second favorite from the collection, again for it's complexity. Application was like butter with this, fully opaque in three thin coats. Shown below is three coats with a glossy top coat.
