After reorganizing my helmer (where I store my polish), I realized I don’t have a lot of variety when it comes to polish brands. So I’ve been making an effort to try some new ones lately. I recently discovered the brand Glitzology, and she has some really amazing glitter polishes! This one is called Blue Lagoon, and it is definitely one of the most glitter-packed polishes I own.
Blue Lagoon is a mix of different shades and sizes of blue and teal glitters, accented by some light sage green glitters. Some, but not all, of the glitters are holographic. The effect is really gorgeous! You probably already know I’m not one for glitters, but I couldn’t stop looking at pictures of this, and ended up buying it during a recent 50% off sale (another reason to love Glitzology – there are LOTS of 50% off sales).
I did have a bit of an issue with the formula, but I don’t have a lot of experience with glitters like this, so it might just be me. I found the glitter to base ratio to be a little (ok, a lot) skewed towards the glitter side. There’s pretty much just enough base in there to make the glitter stick. Which is not conducive to applying polish. One tip: glob the polish on your finger, and then kind of “pat” it down to spread it out (sort of like how acrylic nails are applied). I found that worked much better than trying to paint it on. Here, I did a gradient over Essie Da Bush.
