Face of Australia Limited Edition Nail Polish: Glitterati

Monday, April 15, 2013

On Friday, I was sent a number of gorgeous, jaw-dropping glitter polishes, courtesy of Face of Australia. If you follow my Instagram, Twitter or Facebook accounts, you'll know that Face of Australia releases some absolutely fantastic limited edition nail polishes, and this one just tops the cake.

The collection comes in 8 beautiful shades. From the right, top and bottom:

Studio 54 and Lookin' For Some Hot Stuff - multi-sized glitter suspended in a clear coat of polish. These are beautiful on their own or over a darker polish.

Dancing Queen, Disco Inferno and Saturday Night Fever - uniformly sized, multi-coloured glitter suspended in a clear polish. These would look absolutely amazing over black nail polish.

Boogie Wonderland, Funky Town, and Heart of Glass - glitter with different shapes and sizes, suspended in creamy pastel polish. So pretty on their own.

Overall, I found these glitter polishes to be easy to apply, and they dry very smoothly as well. I didn't apply a top coat over my nails but I still found the surface of my nails to be relatively smooth, with minimal snagging.

Here are swatches. All swatches were done with 3 coats:

From left to right:

Saturday Night Fever
Disco Inferno (only slightly more turquoise than SNF, but both are almost similar)
Heart of Glass (very pretty pink pastel with lavender toned glitter)
Lookin' For Some Hot Stuff
Boogie Wonderland (pretty lavender pastel with purple and blue toned glitter)
Funky Town (a darker purple pastel, with blue pieces of glitter that come out looking very subtle)
Studio 54 (by far, my favourite of this collection)
Dancing Queen (lime green and black glitter)

Remember that with glitter nail polishes, you will need to be patient when it comes to removal. It can be difficult and time consuming, but for me it's worth it!
