Under The Sea Collection by Glam Polish

Under The Sea Collection by Glam Polish is a beautiful marine inspired collection featuring eight glistening crelly holos with micro glitter, glass flecks & shimmer and one holographic microglitter mix. My favourite thing about this collection is the names of the polishes, they're "punny!"

I was warned that these shades would dry slightly textured and require 1-2 coats of glossy topcoat, however I hardly noticed a textured finish and 1 quick glossy coat was enough for a perfect finish. For each of my swatches I used 2-3 coats of polish depending on thickness. Generally I always use 3 thin coats, but because of my nails being shorter than usual I can now get away with using just 2 coats.




"Get Otter Here!" - A violet crelly holo, with holo microglitter, shimmer and glass flecks.

"Daphne's Disco Party" - A neon glitter topper with hot pink and bright yellow glitter. The base was slightly pink tinted, but I would have layered this polish over a pink base anyway. One coat dabbed over "Ichi Hanami."

"Morning Java" - A rich coffee brown with gold/bronze flecks. This is such a rich warm brown to help warm up your winter blues. Who can't function until they have had their morning coffee? I enjoy a nice cup of tea to start my day... especially in this cold weather. For my swatch I used two thin coats plus a glossy top coat.
