Tag Archives: Frappe

What better shade to celebrate Valentine’s Day than pink? And what better pink than Glitter Gal’s stunner of a shade, Frappe?

Let me be honest: I never truly believed the holographic wonder that is Glitter Gal. I did not believe the posts that raved about its linear, multicolour specs of light.

But tonight… I believe!

Words cannot describe the gorgeousness of this holographic polish. Admittedly, the colour is a bit sheer to start, and I debated layering it over a base colour, maybe a light pink, but I did not want to risk losing any holo effect. And so after just one coat….

Frappe applied smoothly and the first coat dried very quickly.  Unlike most polishes that have any type of glitter in them, it dried to an unbelievable glass-like, smooth finish.

I definitely needed a second coat.

Here it is, no topcoat. Just 2 coats of Glitter Gal over a clear base coat.

With a slight blur in the picture, you can really see all the rainbow colours in this polish:

This was my very first Glitter Gal polish, and I am in love!! The colour is just soft enough to provide more of a “neutral” mani, though it will go ablaze in light! (And if you’re a newbie–this colour is so forgiving…)  If there are any drawbacks, it’s the fact that the polish is rather sheer and you definitely need 2 or 3 coats for complete coverage, and that isn’t helped by the mini bottle these have typically been produced in (only 9 ml!). But fear not! Glitter Gal’s website has started carrying a 15 ml standard polish size!! 

You can also purchase these from Harlow & Co and Llarowe, both amazing, independent stockists.

I am in love and cannot wait to try more of these beautiful holos.
