WingDust Collections : The Deep End, Snakeskin Shoes & Space-Junk in Her Trunk

Today I have three beauties to show you from one of my favourite indie brands, WingDust Collections. I discovered Stephanie's Etsy shop last year when I was searching for gold leaf polish that didn't cost an arm and a leg and I fell in love. She is definitely not afraid of a good glitter bomb and her combinations are always so unique. I even had the honour of providing the name inspiration for Muskoka Sunset during one of her recent Facebook contests! When I submitted my most recent order, Stephanie was kind enough to send along three bottles for review purposes.

All three of these are glitter jellies and, like most jelly polish, these take a bit of patience and the glitter needs a bit of help getting to the right spot on the nail. However, unlike most jelly polish, I found these three to be more pigmented, meaning I didn't need as many coats. In fact, for all three I only needed two coats along with some strategic placing of glitter. For all three I used one coat of essie First Base and one coat of Gelous.

First, we have The Deep End which is a lovely purple jelly with various sizes of pink, blue and silver glitter. There is also a lovely copper shimmer that is visible on the nail. The large hexes required fishing.

Next, we have Snakeskin Shoes (currently sold out), a blurple jelly that is loaded with small sized blue, purple and fuchsia glitter. This one also has blue shimmer (love me some shimmer)! I had no issues with glitter distribution on this one and the jelly base is so richly pigmented you get gorgeous depth with several coats.

Finally, we have Space-Junk in Her Trunk (what a fun name!), a deep blue jelly with purple shimmer that is packed with glitter in all shapes and sizes. There are circles! Hex! Stars! Squares! The list goes on. The large glitter in this does sink and requires fishing but I never mind this extra work because the end result is so amazing. Also, even though the hexes and circles are quite large, there are no issues with curling or sticking up on the nail. Again, the jelly base was fantastic to work with.

Which one is your favourite? Of these three, Space-Junk in Her Trunk tops my list - the blue base is just so gorgeous!
