I have an exciting trio of Gothic Gala Lacquers polishes to show you today! If you love in your face sparkle look no further. I cannot wait to show you…so I won’t!
First up in this tantalizing trio of sparkletastic beauties we have 24kt Bling!
Oh yeah baby. That polish is blingarrific alright. Some of my friends tease me about my made up words but I still love them anyway. 24kt Bling is a silver textured polish with a LOAD of gold holographic microglitter and some larger silver holographic hexes.
Application on this was great – there were no issues to report and these two pictures show two coats with no topcoat. Without topcoat it is definitely a textured polish. I love glittery textured polishes and I’m definitely not disappointed with these!
Even though these are textured they will smooth out quite nicely. I used one generous coat of Gothic Gala Lacquers’ Smooth Me Over and then topped the whole thing off with a shiny quick dry topcoat and it was nice and smooth!
Polishes used: Tip Top – Toughen Up Basecoat; Gothic Gala Lacquers – 24kt Bling, Smooth Me Over; Digital Nails – Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That Topcoat
Next up we have another gorgeous glittery extravaganza, Pink Ice:
While it’s obvious that this and 24kt Bling are in the same family there are some differences (aside from the obvious color difference). Pink Ice is a dark pink holographic microglitter filled texture polish and instead of holographic hexes this one has small pink metallic dots throughout.
This one actually seemed slightly more textured to me than 24kt Bling and it may be slightly. I still had no problems with application and am delighted with how easily it went on and how easy it was to clean up around the cuticles! Sometimes polishes like this the glitter wants to cling for dear life but it really wasn’t that bad!
This picture shows Pink Ice with one generous coat of Smooth Me Over and a shiny quick dry topcoat. I think that once it cured and settled it could have used another swipe of topcoat to make it glass smooth but I found this to be smooth enough for me and someone would have had to come up and actually touch it to notice that it wasn’t glass smooth.

Next up is my FAAAAVE-RITE! Imagine me saying that in an Oprah voice…go on do it! I love this one! Sapphire Sizzle:
Looooook at that! So, yes it is definitely purple BUT don’t be fooled…Sapphires come in every color of the rainbow and purple sapphires are gorgeous. This one is a touch sheerer than 24kt Bling and Pink Ice. Oh and where 24kt Bling has hexes and Pink Ice has dots…Sapphire Sizzle has aqua shreds in among all the glorious purple microglitter. This is officially my first polish with shreds and I love them!
I did mention that this one was a bit sheerer than the other two but I didn’t find that problematic. This is still just two coats and no topcoat. I love all the sparkly texture on these and I will be playing with them a little bit more later in a nail art application!
Look how pretty with topcoats too! I didn’t find any issues with smoothing this one out with a generous coat of Smooth Me Over and Topcoat.

I think that these will be perfect in the coming winter months and they are universal enough to be used any time of year. Bring the Bling is going to be available after this blog post goes up!
