The Crushed Gemstones collection consists of densely packed tonal mixes of holographic and metallic glitters in clear jelly bases. The 3 new additions are in warm, inviting colors that are perfect for Fall. Despite these polishes being packed with glitters, I had no real issues with formula or application--they applied very smoothly and easily! Glitters like these do take a bit of patience to get to full opacity and I usually dab/sponge on each layer as I go along until I achieve the coverage I want (stay tuned for a hack that I find works better than a makeup sponge!). If you prefer, you can always layer them over your favorite creme for a quicker mani. The swatches below show just 3 coats of each polish by itself sponged on, topped with 2 generous coats of Glisten & Glow's HK Girl topcoat to finish the look. Now, on to swatches!
Crushed Onyx is described as "a clear base with a dense mix of metallic and holo glitter in shades of black with a bit of iridescent glitter". My favorite of the three, I love the iridescent glitter in this!
Crushed Citrine is described as "a clear base with a dense mix of metallic and holo glitter in shades of orange, coral, and gold". Such a rich, warm glitter mix!
