Glitter Gal Frappe

Hi everyone! Happy American Thanksgiving and Black Friday weekend!

Wow, it feels like I haven't blogged in forever! ...oh wait, I haven't. Sorry everyone!
I've been crazy-busy with with end of semester really weighing down on me. Luckily, I'm at a bit of a reprieve from my bajillion projects and exams, so I'm here to show you one of the most AWESOME polishes ever.

So, today's polish is Glitter Gal's Frappe! This was released in mid-August along with Light as a Feather and the stunning Lizard Belly, which I took pictures of in this post. Frappe is a milky-pink (with a touch of lavender in it maybe) linear holographc polish. Pictures coming right up!

And now another for good measure..

Urgh. I know I've said this a lot about Glitter Gal's Holographc polishes, but seriously, how can any holographic polish lover not like this polish?

The breakdown:

- It's absolutely gorgeous
- Dries relatively fast with a nice shine
- Surface of dry polish is SUPER SMOOTH. I couldn't stop touching my nails because they were just so smooth. (I've mentioned this before comparing the formula of Glitter Gal holographic polishes with Nfu Oh holos, which dry with a more matte finish)
-Holographic effect is very strong

-It is a bit sheer, I used 3 coats in the above pictures

Overall, I really love this polish. It is a bit sheer, but the quick drying time makes up for the extra coat.
I'm generally not a pink girl (most of the time it doesn't really do anything for my skintone), but this milky-pink and holographic combination is a huge winner in my books. My Top 20 list (which doesn't exist on paper yet) welcomes yet another holographic polish!

Anyhow, what do you all think? Gorgeous or what?
Frappe and other Glitter Gal polishes can be purchased from for $14 / 9mL bottle, which is run by Leah Ann LaRowe. Leah Ann is the official US stockist for Glitter Gal and A England. She also sells Ozotic Pro polishes, Picture Polish, HITS, Ludarana, and soon will also be carrying Lynnderella polishes! (gasp!)

I have a huge pile of polishes that I've gotten that need to be swatched, but the weather is not helping me get that done at all. Here's to hoping that the sun will come out sometime this weekend!

Again, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! Make sure you eat some Turkey/Turducken/Pie/DeliciousThanksgivingFood for me! ;)

p.s. - I haven't finished verifying all of the entries of my giveaway yet, since I've been so busy. I'm trying to finish ASAP and will hopefully announce the winner soon!

Cult Nails - Unicorn Puke

Hey everyone!

Sorry for not posting sooner! I had my last midterm today, and from now on I just have papers and finals! Yay!

I'd like to thank everyone for being absolutely fantastic, and I'd just like to remind those of you who haven't entered my giveaway yet to enter! It will be open until the 11th (this Friday!) until 11:59 PM!

Anyway, onto the polish of the day!

I am SUPER excited to show you all Cult Nails' Unicorn Puke! This polish is also being released with the Cult Nails Super Powers collection as Clairvoyant (same polish, different name and the bottle will be different). I managed to snag Unicorn Puke during its presale and it finally made its way to my house last week!

What can I say? This polish is GORGEOUS. I mean, multicoloured flakies in a purple tinted base? Yes please! I've been lemming is one since Maria first posted a picture of it wayyy back and it definitely doesn't disappoint. Anyway, enough rambling talk and time for the pictures!

The above photos are all one coat of Unicorn Puke over 2 coats of Finger Paints - Art of Theft. Isn't it fab? This is definitely going on my top 10 list (which I haven't made yet but have been thinking about)!!

Anyhow! Now it's your turn! What do you think? Are you going to pick up Unicorn Puke/Clairvoyant when it comes out? As of this time of posting, the Super Powers collection is still available for presale at the Cult Nails website!

Thank you for reading!
