Glam Polish: Margaritaville & Fairy Princess Gru!

Good morning lovely readers!  Did you miss me?  I took a little hiatus but I'm back and have some gorgeous Australian indies to share with you!  Hopefully looking at pretty polish will make up for my posting absence.  I'm going to start with an indie brand that is gaining new fans by the speed of sound!  I personally started to notice Glam Polish on Instagram.  I can't remember which account I was posted a picture but I know I was drooling all over the glitter polishes I saw.  And then I shed a tear or two when I realized it was an international brand because those are so hard to get unless you find a swap buddy or find a US stockist and there wasn't one….UNTIL NOW!!  Color4Nails recently began carrying Glam Polish and currently has stock so head over to the website to do some shopping!  They are $12.50 for a 12ml sized bottle (not a mini, but not the standard US size).  You can also follow Color4Nails on Facebook for promotions, restock info and upcoming lines they will carry.  Color4Nails is also on Instagram (color4nails) and you can enjoy looking at pictures of beautiful nail polish gracing many popular bloggers nails.  You can also check out the Glam Polish shop to see all the polishes they make (but your best bet is to buy through Color4Nails if you don't live in Australia).  


 Up first I have Margaritaville.  Yup, I definitely get the Jimmy Buffet song stuck in my head and I sang it all day when I wore this polish.  But that's ok, at least I truly like the song and don't tire of it.  Margaritaville is a hard color to describe.  I'd say it's somewhere between light salmon and a pastel neon peach-coral.  There are bright purple, hot pink and yellow-green glitters to add some fun color.  It's a milky type base and the application on it was nice and easy to use.  The glitters came out easily and laid flat on my nails.  The hot pink glitters didn't come out to play much, but if you look at the bottle those are sparse to begin with so I didn't expect them to be overly abundant on my nails.  I used 3 coats of Margaritaville and 1 layer of topcoat.

This beautiful glitter polish is Fiary Pricess Gru!  You're a Despicable Me fan and you know it!  I have 3 kids and they love the movies so I have seen both more than any adult would care to admit.  But I still  love the movies, they are petty funny!  Fairy Princess Gru is a clear based polish full of hot pink, light pink and pale yellow glitters in different shapes and sizes.  There is a nice amount of holo micro glitter to add a sparkly princess effect!  Can I just say that this combination of glitter is gorgeous!!  I love it!  I want to try it over every possible color!  The formula was great - I got a good dose of glitter with each brush dip with no fishing required.  The application was also great.  I used 2 coats of Fairy Princess Gru over 2 coats of Orly Green Apple (dusty apple green creme) and 2 coats of Bettina Daydream (lilac creme).  I think FPG looks fabulous over both colors!  I finished it off with 1 layer of topcoat.
