ellagee Bling in the New Year collection : Swatches and Review





Hi there, my darlings! A couple of weeks ago, Laura of ellagee asked me if I could swatch a few "unreleased" shades for her. Now not only is Laura a really good friend but I've never been disappointed by what's in one of her swatch packages. Oh and I was curious as all heck, because all she would give me was the merest little sneak peeks! Well, the package arrived on my doorstep and it sure was a treat! Wait til all of you get a glimpse of THIS collection--I present to you today the limited-edition Bling in the New Year collection!


The Bling in the New Year collection consists of 6 semi-sheer shimmery polishes with tons of sparkle--just what you need to help ring in the new year! Across the board, the formula of these beauties were great--although described as semi-sheer, the darker colors were opaque at 2 coats and the lighter shades at 3, which is what the swatches below show. I topped each mani off with 1 thin ellagee's Fast Dry Top Coat to finish the look. Now on to swatches!


Brand New Year is a pale gold semi-sheer polish with tons of added shimmer and sparkling holographic micro-glitter. So elegant! I can totally see this being the polish of choice for a formal New Year's event!

A Kiss At Midnight is a bright red semi-sheer polish with tons of added shimmer and sparkling holographic micro-glitter. This polish has a slight orangey-coral undertone. Being a total sucker for reds, you know I loved this at first sight!

The Lights of Times Square is a pale, delicate silver semi-sheer polish with tons of added shimmer and sparkling holographic micro-glitter. Not all silvers work with my skin tone but this one was a winner!

Countdown To 2015 is a dark, dark army green semi-sheer polish with tons of added shimmer and sparkling holographic micro-glitter. OK, now this polish is trippy--it's absolutely black in the bottle but on the nails, the holographic glitter adds another level and it has a definite dark green cast! Cool, right?!

Sky High Heels is a warm, champagne gold polish with tons of added shimmer and sparkling holographic micro-glitter. I was so afraid this polish would give me mannequin hands but it doesn't! And I love how beautiful it looks!

Dressed to The Nines is a vibrant dark purple semi-sheer polish with tons of added shimmer and sparkling holographic micro-glitter. Though hard-pressed to choose, I think this was my favorite of this collection!

....and here's a little abstract nail art look I created with Brand New Year as the base and Dressed to The Nines, A Kiss at Midnight, Sky High Heels and Countdown To 2015 for the roses. All I used was a dotting tool and a green striper pen for the leaves. I hope you like it!
