Review: Glitter Gal Dark Purple 3D/Holographic

Hello gentle readers. Happy Saturday to you all. I hope that you are enjoying your weekend.

Today I have a stunner for your viewing pleasure. May I present Glitter Gal Dark Purple 3D/Holographic.


Glitter Gal Dark Purple 3d/Holographic is a dark purple highly pigmented purple jelly base packed with rainbow linear holographic effect. This is some right pretty polish. I applied two coats. I shot some photographs without top coat, then I added top coat to see if it would dull the holo at all. You will see the result, in a bit.

First up, my swatches without top coat. I encourage clicking. Seriously. If you are going to get your eyes knocked out by this stuff, might as well do it looking at bigger pictures. :D

These were shot outside in the sun. Take a good look at all of the different colours this baby throws out. And please bear in mind, these were taken with a very old, feeble little digital camera that doesn't have the best resolution in the world. Just imagine what this stuff looks like, in person. Guh!

So, what do you think? Pretty nifty, huh? I'll tell ya, Glitter Gal polishes have some of the best holo I have ever seen. Now, granted, I don't have a huge collection of holos but I have seen many, many photographs of many different holos on the blogs and Glitter Gal is at the front of the pack for holo goodness.

Okay, so I promised photos with top coat. Did the top coat dull the holo? Take a look and you tell me.

I'm thinking no. :D If you like to wear top coat like I like to wear top coat, the holo in Glitter Gal polishes can stand up to it, just fine.

A little about the formula, now. It is, in a word, lovely. Application is dreamy smooth and easy. This polish flows off of the full, round brush and sits it's little self right down where you ask it to. It doesn't run, streak, pool, flood cuticles or catch and drag. No special base is needed; regular old base coat is perfectly good to use with this stuff. It behaves like the sweetest, most butter-wouldn't-melt-in-it's-mouth jelly. 

Dry time for these polishes is respectable. Not flash fast but you won't be kept diddly-daddling around, waiting for your polish to dry. Seche Vite definitely speeds it up a bit. I do want to say, if you want to skip the top coat, you can. This stuff is mad shiny all on it's own. 

If you are drooling like I am drooling, you can get your hands on this beauty here. I read on Llaroew's main page that they are going to be getting bigger bottles of Glitter Gal. Bigger bottles! Yeah, baby! 

Please stay tuned for tomorrow's post when I wrap up my Ozotic/Glitter Gal review series with my personal favourite of the bunch. I love all of these babies but this last one... It is special, to me. I am sure that you can probably guess why. :)

Okay, time for me to motor. Thank you so very much for popping in and spending a little of your Saturday drooling over this polish. (Don't even tell me that there was no drooling involved. I won't believe you. lol) Have yourself a great day and may your polish never bubble.
