Hello! This is Miranda (AKA arfblat) from SPLAT and in this guest post I want to show you guys my first indie polish because I know Jessica loves indie franken concoctions! I ordered this particular polish, called Royal Flush, from Glix Glitrix’s etsy site. Glix Glitrix is an indie brand from Singapore that packages nail polishes in the cutest star-shaped bottles! The second I saw these adorable little bottles I knew I had to have one, and at $6 per bottle with free shipping, I could actually afford it!
Royal Flush is a deep purple polish with medium gold hexes and small gold and blue dots but in the right lighting the glitters flash all sorts of different colors! I love the combination of the vampy-ish color with the sparkly bling, I couldn’t stop staring - at my nails and at the bottle!
The formula was great, mostly opaque in one coat but perfect in two. I was afraid I might have to fish for the larger glitters but I didn’t! My only complaint might be the quality of the brush - the end was a little too round for my taste and not completely even which made application a tad bit difficult. But even so, it was worth it! So, without further ado, here are the results!
|In the sun; sorry about the shadow on the pinky!|
|In the shade.|
For fun I decided to use Essie Matte About You on top and loved the results. If you know me, you may know that I love the way glitter looks mattified! It really brought out the colors of the glitter, especially the small blue glitter that was in there.
|Sorry about the tip wear, this was after I'd been wearing it for a couple of days!|
|Check out that tiny blue glitter!|
And finally, here’s some bottle shot porn just because this is one of the prettiest bottles I’ve ever seen!
Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did! Check out Glix Glitrix's etsy shop for other awesome franken polishes! I think I'll definitely be buying more in the future! And thanks, Jessica, for letting me guest post, this was lots of fun!
