Glisten & Glow : Cocktails, Anyone? collection (pic heavy!)

Hold on to your seats and grab your sunglasses, these suckers are crazy!

On the Monday evening of Cosmoprof, Missi of DIFFERENT dimension, Jill of Glisten & Glow, Sara of Cupcake Polish, and Linda of NailVinyls hosted a blogger & indie maker event. It was a crazy fun time that was capped off with the receipt of not one but TWO swag bags. Generous, right? These bags included samples - Cosmoprof exclusives, current collections, and upcoming collections - from the makers at the event. (The Elevation/Pahlish duo from Friday was also in the swag bags.)

At the end of the event most makers said they didn't want to carry all of their stock home and so were unloading it on delirious bloggers, makers, and friends. I happened to be chatting with Jill when she dumped a crap ton of stuff into my bag, including these eight beauties.

Across the board, the formula on these was great! Some were more sheer than others but none needed more than three coats! In the sun, these babies rock my world. Without fail, when I went to take a pic in the sun, I'd step outside, look at my nails and go WOAH! These are intense, ultra linear holographic polishes. *drool*

Please note that I didn't use base or top coat for any of the swatches. They are that good!


Blue Hawaiian is a light blue linear holographic. Shown here is three coats.
