Up first I have Sold On Gold. Here's What Cynthia has to say about this stunning gold hued polish, "never mind silver and platinum, this woman is Sold on Gold! She loves the vivid brilliance of the eye catching shine whether it is shiny, brushed or matte, and always carries a jewelers loupe to inspect a potential addition to her stash for the required stamp." This is an amazing yellow gold polish full of micro gold and holo glitters. The sparkle and shine is fabulous! Sold On Gold had a great formula that applied very well. It had a nice even and smooth finish. I used 3 thin coats to each full coverage. Sold On Gold dries to a matte finish so you'll want to use topcoat to achieve the glossy look I have. I used 2 coats of Alter Ego She Shines topcoat.

The second exclusive polish is Rows Her Boat.  This was the true standout for me.  If you were to only buy 1 Alter Ego I would fully suggest that this is the one you want!  Cynthia says this about Rows Her Boat, "She Rows Her Boat down a sun dappled spring fed stream, enjoying and admiring the wildlife and foliage only seen from this position! Streams and rivers are not the bright blue like the ocean, they are more blue-green like the base color. Because of that, the sun reflects the gold flecks of color instead of the silver specks that is seen on the ocean." I love hearing inspiration behind colors and Cynthia paints a beautiful picture! This dusty blue with heavy gold shimmer and holo shimmer which creates a mermaid-teal/green shade and it is amazing! The formula was a bit quick drying, you'll find the polish gets thick if you don't close it up and shake it a couple times every so often. Other than that the Rows Her Boat applied perfectly well. I only needed 2 coats of Rows Her Boat for full coverage. Again, this will dry to a matte finish but to show off it's full beauty you will want to use topcoat for a glossy finish. I used Alter Ego She Shines topcoat.
