SPLAT's Taking Over - Glix Glitrix Royal Flush








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!

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!
