Today is my first day of auditions in Lausanne! No guest post today, but I've got a ton of random swatches from Wonder Beauty Products to share!
Steel Magnolia is a light grey jelly base with white and pink satin hex glitters and a sprinkling of shimmer/microglitters in a light grey jelly base. Application was a little tricky because the glitters kept clumping together; three coats for opacity, shown with one coat of LaCC 2013 top coat.
Some Kind Of Wonderful is a light blue crelly base packed with purple and yellow hex glitters of various sizes. Application was the same as above, though it looks a little lumpier on. I'm kind of biased towards this one because of the name. Three coats with LaCC 2013 top coat.
The rest are photos taken with my old camera, so bear with me.
Here is one coat of Grammy Girl over Orly Jealous, Much?. This glitter topper required a little work to get an even spread, but wasn't too difficult. One coat of Seche Vite.
Rockin' My Grammy Panties is a glitter topper that's primarily blue and green hexes, I've shown one coat over Orly Jealous, much? with one coat of Seche Vite.
Rockin' My Grammy Panties is shown here over Orly Le Chateau, and I much prefer this colour combination to the previous one. Application was pretty easy on this one, and I topped it with one coat of Seche Vite.
Roxie Hart is shown here in one coat over Orly Decoded, with one coat of Seche Vite. I like this one in concept, but application was absolutely awful and I ended up having to sponge it on. On top of that, the glitters poked up in all sorts of odd ways and it would need 50 coats of top coat to smooth it over. Grrr.
1 Dozen Heart Bouquet is another Valentine's glitter topper, and this had the exact same application issues as Roxie Hart, though not quite as bad. You're seeing one sponged coat plus spot-filling over NOPI Studio Mama, topped with Seche Vite.
Let's Play Footsie is a bright pink jelly base with white, orange, and pink hex glitters in various sizes. I used three coats for opacity, and topped it with one coat of Seche Vite. The first coat was a little tricky to apply, but the second two were much easier.
Kismet is a bright-but-dark blue jelly base with various shapes and sizes of glitter in blues and purples. It can be built up to opacity alone but gets quite lumpy, so I layered two coats over OPI Russian Navy. Glitter wanted to clump a little, but it was workable. One coat of Seche Vite.
I saved my favourite two polishes for last, the holos! Blue Sterling is a light blue polish with a subtle holo effect, though in some lights is looks grey. Formula was thick but workable, seeing as it was a one-coater!
Euphoria is a deep plum/brown holo, a really unique colour with a strong holo effect! Formula was thick on this one too, but I added a little thinner and used two coats. Love this one!!
Follow the Wonder Beauty Products blog for updates; the polishes are available for purchase through the WBP Etsy shop and Llarowe.
My favourites are definitely Euphoria and Blue Sterling, though I also quite like Steel Magnolia and Some Kind Of Wonderful. Which are your favourites? :)
