Happy Hump Day! My internal clock is all messed up because of the long weekend. Sometimes I feel like today is Thursday and other times Tuesday, but rarely Wednesday. (That made perfect sense in my head...) ;)
Today I have an AMAZING collection to share with you. The wonderful Caterina of Eat. Sleep. Polish. recently released her newest collection and I was very excited to get my hands on these. Inspired by Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Alice in Polishland consists of five polishes - three holographic, one crelly and one glitter topper. (NB: Off With Her Head is only available through the end of February.)
The first one I have to show you is Bruised Her Soul, which is a blackened plum colour and has a scattered holographic effect. The holo isn't super strong but pretty nonetheless. The pigmentation on this was good and it flowed well on the nail. Shown here is one coat of CND Stickey base coat and two coats of Bruised Her Soul.
Next up we have Don't Pet the Cheshire Cat, which is a light purple crelly and has purple and pink square and hex glitters. This is not a glitter bomb by any means and the lower concentration of glitter makes this polish more understated and elegant. This one is quite sheer so it will take three to four coats to build up the opacity or you could layer it over a similarly coloured undie. Shown here is one coat of CND Stickey base coat, three coats of Don't Pet the Cheshire Cat and one coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl.
Next in line is The Queen's Croquet, a bright pink polish with micro flakes and a super subtle holo sparkle. I don't know why, but my camera freaked when taking pictures of this one so I apologize for the quality. I used three coats for this one but it you used a heavier hand you could likely get away with two. This polish dries to a satin finish which is quite nice on it's own. I added one coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl for the final picture.
Off With Her Head is a limited edition glitter topper and will only be available until the end of February. I really like the combination of black, silver and white glitter and the addition of the red hearts is perfect for a Queen of Hearts inspired polish. I did have quite a bit of trouble fishing the hearts out but it could be because I purchased this collection in the mini size. As you can see though, I was able to get several to place on each nail. Shown here is one coat of Off With Her Head over The Queen's Croquet and one coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl.
Last, but certainly not least, we have Painting the Roses Red, a burgundy polish with the same scattered holographic effect as Bruised Her Soul. The formula on this was exactly the same as Bruised Her Soul and I was able to use two easy coats over one coat of CND Stickey.
I am a big fan of this whole collection but, for me, I think the stand-out is Bruised Her Soul. I love the dark, vampy plum colour and the scattered holo gives it the perfect amount of sparkle. Fans of Alice in Wonderland, you are going to want to snap up the whole collection before Off With Her Head is gone.
