Glam Polish | The King Collection12:57 PM
Hey guys! I hope all is well! I have another "New to Me" brand to share with you today! New to me as in I have purchased and received a few of their polishes from swaps before but this is the first time I was sent press samples to test and review. And when I found out I was seriously excited, not only because all polishes I own of theirs are great but the theme behind this collection is awesome!
Meet The King Collection, by Glam Polish! The King Collection is inspired by the legendary, King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley! This collection consist of 9 polishes, I was sent 6 of the shades to review. Let's get right to it!
All polishes had the same formula and Each polish only needed two coats to achieve full opacity. I sealed them with two coats of a glossy top coat. The flakies in a handful of these polishes are a mix of fine and coarse irregular cut holo that is more like a glitter material not a powder like spectraflair, polishes with the flakies do have a textured finish, not all the pieces of flakie lay flat on the nail so the polishes with them are a little more difficult to apply and do require 1-2 coats of top coat to smooth them out. I did experience some of the flakies sticking up on a couple of the swatches but after two coats of top coat they smoothed out.
Glam Polish-Suspicious Minds
Suspicious Minds is a deep plum pink polish with holo micro flakes and glitter through out.
"We can't go on together
With suspicious minds (suspicious minds)
And we can't build our dreams
On suspicious minds"
Glam Polish-If I Can Dream
If I Can Dream is a gray white polish with scattered holo glitter and flakies through out.
"There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue
If I can dream of a better land
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
Tell me why, oh why, oh why can't my dream come true"
Glam Polish-Can't Help Falling In Love
Can't Help Falling In Love is a royal blue scattered holo glitter and flakie polish.
"Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can't help falling in love with you"
Glam Polish-Burning Love
Burning Love is a fire red with a gold shift as well as holo glitters and flakies throughout.
"Your kisses lift me higher
Like the sweet song of a choir
You light my morning sky
With burning love"
Glam Polish-A Little Less Conversation
A Little Less Conversation is a turquoise polish with holo glitter and flakies throughout.
"A little less conversation, a little more action please
All this aggravation ain't satisfactioning me
A little more bite and a little less bark
A little less fight and a little more spark
Close your mouth and open up your heart and baby satisfy me
Satisfy me baby"
Glam Polish-All Shook Up
All Shook Up is a silver glitter based polish with red and blue holo glitter and flakies throughout.
"My hands are shaky and my knees are weak
I can't seem to stand on my own two feet
Who do you thank when you have such luck?
I'm in love
I'm all shook up
Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!"
And here is a fun art mani I did using 3 of the polishes. All Shook Up, Can't Help Falling In Love and Burning Love. Elvis and the little music notes are free hand painted with black acrylic paint.
Overall, I really enjoyed them. Despite the flakies making the polish very textured, that was easily fixed for me with two thin coats of a glossy top coat. But for those of you who love textured polishes then I would definitely check these out! My personal favorite is A Little Less Conversation, Can't wait to use it in a ton of Summer manis!! What one did you like the most?
