Ellagee Review!

Discount Provided for Honest Review

My dearest readers let me just tell you now – I have some great things in store for you today!  These are the first Ellagee polishes that I’ve ever gotten but I can tell you right now these will NOT be my last!!  Furthermore you’re going to start to see me branch out into colors and finishes and effects that I haven’t touched on yet!

First up is Not the Droids You Are Looking For.

Look how fun!  NtDYALF is a clear based glitter topper.  There are just tons and tons of gold, silver, and blue dots inspired by C-3PO and R2D2!  The glitter spread was very nice and I didn’t have to manipulate it much if at all.

These pictures show one coat over undies!

Polishes used in this manicure:  Glisten & Glow – Stuck on Blu Basecoat; Tip Top Nails – Cherry’s in the Snow; Ellagee – Not the Droids You Are Looking For; Nail Pattern Boldness – Glitter Food; Glisten & Glow – HK Girl Topcoat

Next we have one that I was really really excited about.  The only disappointment is that I am not able to do this polish justice in my pictures.  I give you La Fée Verte.  Well actually I’m not giving it to you this one is MINE!

Look at that lovely green fairy!  This polish comes from Ellagee’s Cocktail Hour collection and this is a thermal polish inspired by Absinthe.  When it’s warm it is a lovely silvery gray with just the barest hint of green.  When it is cool it is a deeper green.  Also sprinkled throughout is a smattering of holographic micro-glitters.  Application was easy breezy and the thermal effect is really very neat I just couldn’t seem to capture it very effectively, it was pretty cold in my office and I would get my nails warmed up as best as I could but these pictures show it closer to the cool (temperature) shade.

This polish actually dries to a very lovely satiny finish, not really matte, but not super blinding shiny either.  These pictures show two coats with topcoat.

Last but NOT least in any way shape or form is a BEAUTIFUL polish from Ellagee’s Holiday collection.  This is Everyone Wishes for Silver and Gold

Really, I could faint over this.  It’s so gorgeous.  I know that this kind of color is a real departure for me.  I am not one to go in for a bunch of neutral shades.  This however is so amazingly classy, classic, and just lovely.  Everyone Wishes for Silver and Gold is an ivory crelly packed with multi-sized gold, silver, and white metallic and holographic circle glitters!  You know I am a complete sucker for circle or dot glitter.  The overall effect is just so delicate and lovely.  I will probably be reaching for this one more than once this Holiday season!  You’ll have to act quick for this one though it is a limited edition for the Holidays only!

Picture shows two coats and the glitter spread was very nice and easy and didn’t require any major placement or manipulation.  I do like that I seemed to get a good mix of all the glitters on my nails, even the larger dots were no problem at all.  I did use glitter food, although I probably could have gotten away with not using it and just opted for an extra thick coat of HK Girl.
