Ever After Burning Twilight

I have another amazing polish to share with you today. I figured while I was out of town I'd show you the best of the best! This one is from Ever After Polish. This is actually my first ever Ever After Polish. I saw this polish featured on another blog and seconds after reading it I purchased it. Every once in awhile a polish just catches you off guard and you have to have it!

Burning Twilight
Burning Twilight is a purple/blue periwinkle with copper/red flakes and skattered holo.

Collection: Custom Polish made for Newsie Nail Novice

Color: I'm sure if you've been reading my blog for awhile you'll know why I needed this so badly. The color combination is what got me here. I love cool-toned colors paired with warm metallics. This periwinkle/cooper combo is beautiful! I love the flakies in this and the added holo.

Formula: Great formula. I used 2 coats above. It was smooth and easy to apply.

Price: This is $11 on the Ever After website.

Overall: This is a winning color combination. I love the richness of this periwinkle paired with the copper flakies. It gives off such a luxurious look. I love all the added elements in this polish that make it extra special. This is one of those where more is more, not less is more!

My Rating: 5 out of 5 *Golden* Paint Splatters

Indigo Bananas Earth, Wind, and Fire

Every so often you come across a polish that is a rare gem. It's something you never seen before and never knew you wanted until you set eyes on it. That's how I feel about this Indigo Bananas polish. I never knew a polish like this could exist and it has one of the most stunning finishes I've ever seen. Yep. Mine. I need that!

Earth, Wind, and Fire (over a mint creme)
Earth, Wind, and Fire is a crystal flakie mix of gold-copper-green-purple plus linear holographic.

Collection: Indigo Bananas Neon, The 10th Element Summer 2015

Color: What? What? I did not know they made opalescent flakies! These are gorgeous. I love they are golden and that they are color shifting. I don't think I've ever seen a flakie polish like this one ever? If I did I would of swooped it up. These golden opalescent flakies along with the holo glitter give such an amazing effect to nail polish. My nails look like jewelry or something.

Formula: Excellent and easy to use formula. I used 2 coats over a base here.

Price: You can purchase this in a 15ml bottle for $12 or a 8ml bottle for $7.25.

Overall: I wish I had tried this last year. It would have been a shoe in for Top 25 of 2015. This is definitely one of the coolest and prettiest polishes I now own in 8 years of collection polish. Wowee! This is amazing!

Throwbacks Week: OPI DS Glamour

Last month's Throwbacks Week I featured an OPI DS color and I've decided to do the same. I really had a good look at my polish stash a little while ago while doing a destash. When I came across my OPI DS colors I knew they would definitely be staying, especially this one.

DS Glamour
DS Glamour is a denim blue holographic.

Collection: OPI Designer Series 2007

Color: What is there to say? This is a fantastic color. You'd expect in 2007 they'd either do a pastel blue or a dark blue, but this denim blue is amazing. The holo effect in this is very crisp and bright. I'd call this a scattered/linear combo as far as holos go.

Formula: Excellent formula that has stayed in tact for 9 years. I used 2 coats here. This one applies beautifully.

Price: You can catch this on eBay every so often, but it's usually pretty pricey.

Overall: This is an all star polish. It's an amazing and beautiful blue. The holo effect is spectacular. Again, what else is there to say? Glamour speaks for itself.

Throwbacks Week: Cult Nails Captivated

I wish Cult Nails was still around. I think they had some of the most high-quality formulas and colors with their polishes before the indie market became oversaturated. One of my favorite polishes from theirs was Captivated. I loved it so much I got two bottles.

Captivated is a coral jelly with golden iridescent glitter.

Collection: Cult Nails A Day At The Races 2011

Color: I love this color combination. This is definitely reminiscent of  those early 90's jelly shoes. I adore the golden iridescent glitter mixed in there against that bright coral. 

Formula: This formula is a bit on the thick sign. I do remember it being this way when I originally had it, so it's not from age. I used 3 coats on this and I think adding a bit of thinner could be beneficial to keep it from getting too thick on the nail when building coats.

Price: N/A. This has been discontinued as the brand is no longer in business. You might be able to spot this in a destash sale though.

Overall: I have so much love for this polish. I love the brightness of the coral and I'm practically drooling over the iridescent glitter. This is a polish that has withstood the test of time as far as appeal goes. This is probably the only time in the history of Imperfectly Painted I'll do this but despite its thick formula it's definitely worth 5 golden paint splatters.
