Yay my dear nailpolish lovers - I am determined to show you guys all of the five polishes that came in the August A Box Indied within a week :-o!!!
The polish I want to show you today is Glisten&Glow You've Been Hazed Delta Tau Chi Pledge Class (OMG what a name, but this is what the bottom of the bottle reads…). It is a mid-tone greyish blue linear holo that looks like a dark periwinkle in the sun. You've Been Hazed is a classical holo polish (GOSH, did I really just type "classic" in relation to holos? I guess we have reached that stage with all the holos that come with shimmer, flakes, multi-chrome and what have you). But on to pics - ok?
I applied three thin coats of Glisten&Glow You've Been Hazed over my regular Base Coat. And here it shows where this polish doesn't behave like a classic holo - it applied wonderfully and even. Yes, the first coat was sheeeeeeer, and also the second coat did not give the opacity I am looking for in a linear holo. But this little guy behaved so well and dried so quickly a third coat was not taking up a lot of time and given the thinner consistency, you also don't end with a thick coat of polish on your nails. I (of course) finished the mani with Glisten&Glow HK Girl.
Final thoughts: Glisten&Glow You've Been Hazed quite honestly didn't knock me out of my socks. It is lovely mind you and is extremely versatile with regard to skin tone I am sure but maybe I am already too spoilt with regard to holographic polish - it simply didn't really trigger any excitement with me - so sorry for that….
