First, let's get the label out of the way. How stinkin' cute is this label?! I seriously love it and I'm not even a cat person. :) On to the polish...
Base coat used: essie First Base
First up, we have Gaia which is "a scattered holographic, taupe-brown, foil polish." The formula on this was good - I had no problems working with it - and the end result is stunning. Since I live in the land of ice and snow and it's dark by the time I get home I didn't have a chance to try out the holographic properties but I love it just as a shimmery foil.
Shown here is two coats of Gaia and one coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl.
The second polish I ordered is a glitter topper called Himalayan Salty Caramels. I'm going to admit that I bought this one purely based on the name. Salt & caramel? Yes, please! This topper consists of "gold, bronze, caramel & pink glitter of various shapes and sizes" and it's lovely. I've really got a soft spot for all things bronze/caramel/brown this season and this is no exception. The base on this wasn't too thick and I didn't even need to use the dab method for placement.
Shown here is two easy coats of Himalayan Salty Caramels over two coats of Orly Liquid Vinyl and one coat of Gelous.
I was very pleased with both of these and will definitely be purchasing more from Eat. Sleep. Polish. in the future! Their Valentine's collection is currently available for pre-order.
