Glitter Gal Wisteria

Do you love the dance of holo particles reflecting off your nails? Then you’ll want to grab your coffee/wine/protein shake/etc., sit down, and enjoy this post…

Glitter Gal has released a new collection of nine new incredible holographic shades for fall 2012 (spring 2012 in Australia 🙂 ). Have a look!

Aren’t they gorgeous?

Today I bring you the delicate beauty of Wisteria, a lavender, effervescent polish. Don’t let the delicateness of it fool you though, it is extremely holographic!!  I experienced this with another Glitter Gal fave, Frappe, which, though delicate and light pink, was probably the most holographic polish I have ever purchased.

This is such a demure and lady-like polish. As I applied it, I kept thinking how perfect it would be for a special event, such as attending a wedding or shower. Super pretty!

And speaking of application, it applied really smoothly. I find Glitter Gal polishes to be on the thinner side, but not in a bad way. They apply really easily, and because the coats are thinner than other polishes, each coat also dried very quickly. I also adore the glass-like finish that Glitter Gal provides! It actually feels as smooth as glass. Three coats of Wisteria dried to a glossy finish before I had even applied a top coat! I did end up topping up with my favourite, China Glaze’s Fast Forward Top Coat, only because I like to make my manis last without chipping… but there really was no need.

Here it is when I first applied it:


It was overcast and that’s exactly how it looked in the shade. A gorgeous, holo lavender even without any direct light. Love!

Here are more pics from when the sun finally peaked out:

I have no words for that crazy holo reflection. It was all I could do to type/get any work done with that beautiful distraction shining in my eyes….

Some background on Glitter Gal:
This amazing brand was created in Australia by longtime friends Kerry and Anna, both with industry backgrounds, who decided to create a unique and premium makeup and nailpolish product line. Glitter Gal is Big 5-free (Camphor, TFR, DPB, Formaldehyde, and Toluene), cruelty-free, long-wearing and fast-drying, and provides this amazing true linear holographic finish that we love.

Glitter Gal is available in premium-boxed 15 ml bottles or the new, larger, 10 ml bottles that have replaced the old 9 ml smaller bottles (all thanks to customer feedback – how’s that for customer service!).
