Hi loves! I'm finally back with some brand new content. Sorry for the sudden disappearance but I struggled with some family matters over the last few weeks since my grandfather got very ill. He passed away March 28th and as you can guess my head wasn't really into blogging.
Now, about the beauties I am showing you today! I have 5 shades from the Glam Polish Masters of Illusion [limited edition] collection which consists of 9 amazing special effect shades with stunning mixes of flakies, holo, microflakies and color shifting glass flecks. 6 of them are recommend to be layered because the color shift will show up better but the shades I had were all opaque by themselves in 3 coats so you can choose how to wear them.
Let's dive right in!
Glam Polish Masters of Illusion Catch Me If You Can has a blue tinted holographic base with ultra holo glitter, sterling silver flakies and sparkly microflakies, glass flecks and shimmer. This polish can look totally different when you change the lighting. In bright light (what I use to take my pictures) the holographic effect is strong and sparkly, so is the glitter. The silver flakes are more appearant in more dim lighting, giving that glorious coated look like you dipped your nails in liquid silver. Formula was good though slightly thicker, I used 2 coats for opacity and finished with topcoat.
Glam Polish Masters of Illusion Mad Magician has a holographic base with ultra holo glitter, violet/red flakies, iridescent color shifting glass flecks and shimmer. This is one of the shades recommend to layer over a basecolor, so I used 2 coats over black. It's quite dense but layering one coat might give slight uneven coverage, the colors are also stronger with coats. I really like the metallic flakes in this polish!
Glam Polish Masters of Illusion Now You See Me has a clear holographic base with ultra holo glitter, holo microglitter, sterling silver flakies and sparkly microflakies. It's the same as Catch Me If You Can minus the colored base. It's like this silver polish has EVERY kind of sparkle there is - a linear holographic effect, sparkly holo glitter, the sterling flakes that (again) give that coated effect in dim lighting.. perfection. I used 3 coats to be sure of the opacity but I think 2 would have been good as well.
Glam Polish Masters of Illusion PREST-O CHANGE-O has a holographic base with ultra holo glitter, green/purple flakies, iridescent color shifting glass flecks and shimmer. The colorshift is quite strong with this beauty! It's another one of the recommend layering polishes so again, 2 coats over black. This applied slightly more even than Mad Magician but really, both are easy to apply and don't require a lot of patience or effort.
Glam Polish Masters of Illusion Sorcerer’s Apprentice has a holographic base with ultra holo glitter, golden/green flakies, iridescent color shifting glass flecks and shimmer. Can I just say I LOVE the golden hue? It's so warm and rich. Even though this is one of the recommend layering shades I just went ahead and did 2 coats without a basecolor. It covers really well!
I love how unique all these shades are and that some of them are very versatile in how you can wear them. The formula was good on all of them, thickness isn't consistent but I hadn't had issues with any of them. The layering shades were opaque with 3 coats on my swatching wheel which is clear so they shouldn't give you any trouble!
The only issue I had with these shades is removing them. There are so many tiny glittering and shimmering bits and pieces - they get stuck to your skin BIG TIME. Take your time to use a soaked bit of cotton ball and let it work it's magic ^^.
My favorite shades are Sorcere's Apprentice because of the gorgeous golden hue and PREST-O CHANGE-O since it's so unique, but all of them are stunning!
