Hello fellow Nail Crazies!
Today I bring you Valentines Day collection plus one other single polish made by the lovely GoomBay Gal Nail Lacquer. This beautiful polishes consist of jellys, crellys, glitter toppers AND thermals!
First up is Electro-Heart! This is a clear glitter topper with holo pink and rainbow holo ultrafine glitters as well as silver holo hearts. I used 1 coat of this over Check Up by Essie then sealed with a glossy top coat. Some fishing and placement was needed with the hearts but I was using a mini bottle so that's not out of the norm. I think this is a cute glitter polish.
Second is Crushed Kisses! This is a white crelly with red and pink ultrafine glitters. I used 3 thin coats of this to make it opaque then sealed it with a glossy top coat. This went on smoothly and the formula was great. A Super cute Valentines crelly.
Next is Sincerely, Barbie! This is a pink jelly thermal that contains rainbow ultrafine glitters as well as super small light pink hexes. I used 3 thin coats of this to make it opaque then sealed it with a glossy top coat. Went on smoothly and formula was good. It changes from a pink to a very pale pink. This polish definitely reminded me of Barbie without a doubt, it's perfect for all you pink polish lovers.
Fifth is My Heart Sank! This is a clear glitter topper with rainbow ultrafine, multi sized white hexes, small red squares, white bars as well as red hearts. I did 2 coats of this using the dabbing method, over a white and red ombre then sealed it with a glossy top coat. Placement was needed with the hearts but as stated before I was using a mini bottle and those things hate heavy glitters! lol This is an adorable glitter topper and Its perfect for Valentines Day.
Last up in the collection is Scarlett Letter! This is a red jelly with ultrafine rainbow glitter. I used 3 thin coats of this to make it opaque then sealed it with a glossy top coat. This went on great and formula was great as well. A very pretty sparkly red that's perfect for all those ladies who want a simple but sexy classic red polish to wear for Valentines Day.
The single polish not from the valentines collection is Star Gazing! This is a grayish purple thermal jelly polish that contains multi sized rainbow glitters. I used 3 thin coats of this to make it opaque then sealed it with a glossy top coat. This was a great formula and it went on smoothly. I love this polish and its perfect for jelly sandwich manis! (1 layer of polish, second layer glitters then topped with the polish again) Which is what I did for the accent nail in the mani below! It can also be used as a glitter topper over another color if you use just one coat. It changes from grayish purple to clear.
Overall I loved every one of the polishes from this collection. The couple that needed some placement with the hearts are still amazing and because of the suspension base she uses in her polishes, if in a full size bottle you should have no problem getting the hearts out with minimal to no fishing! So go check out these polishes as well as her other polishes at the links below!
