Welcome to Storybrooke Collection by Glam Polish

Glam Polish has just released another sparkly collection. This collection is inspired by the T.V. series Once Upon A Time. There are six holographic polishes and three multichrome holographic polishes that make up this collection. 

First up is the holographic polishes. Each polish has a fantastic formula. For the darker shades I only had to use two thin coats. For the slightly lighter shades I used three thin coats for maximum opacity. In the sunlight each of the polishes is blindingly sparkly. In the shade they are still sparkly but they also shift colours slightly depending on the lighting. 

"Red Handed" - A redish pink holo with plenty of shimmer.

That was the holographic shades, so now onto the holographic multichromes. I've never swatched anything like this before. I've done holos and multichromes but never both in the same polish! These are truly amazing polishes. In the sunlight is polish is crazy holo with a dominate colour. Depending on the lighting (such as shade or indoor lighting) you can see more of the shifting colours. For my swatches I have photos in direct sunlight to show off the holo awesomeness. I also have photos in my light box. These photos show more of the shifting colours. I also used water droplets as water bends light and can show the colour shift around the droplets. 


"The Thing You Love Most" - A mulitchrome holo that shifts between violet, red, gold, and orange.

I hope I was able to do these polishes justice, because they really are amazing. I highly recommend checking out ErinZi's Nails as she has perfected the art of capturing holo multichromes.

This collection is now available from Glam Polish with shipping to Australia and America.
