Swatches & Review // Glam Polish Darkly Dreaming collection (partial)

Hi loves! I'm back with another Glam Polish release, this time inspired by the TV show Dexter. It's called Darkly Dreaming and consists of 9 dark scattered holographic shades packed with ultra holo glitter and shimmering glass flecks inspired by one of our all time favorite TV series’ Dexter. I'll admit: while writing this post, I'm only 2 episodes away from the series finale. I was quite late to the Dexter party, lol!

Glam Polish Trinity

Glam Polish Truth Be Told


Ready to take a closer look at these gorgeous shades?
 
One of the things that I immediately loved about these shades is how Fall appropriate they are. I had them sitting with me somewhere around July already but they immediately had me longing for the new collections that bring these darker, jeweltoned shades. I'm just a sucker for the vampy polishes!

Formula was great on all of these, they all needed 2 thin coats for opacity. Removal can be a bit messy because of the glitter, but other than that no issues. I didn't have any of the shades stain on me and wore both Homicidal Tendencies and Truth Be Told as full manis as well, without any extra layers of basecoat or anything.

All pictures are taken under artificial lighting which highlights the holographic finish and slightly washes out the smaller details like glitter.

Glam Polish Dex, Lies & Videotape is a dark magenta/purple scattered holo with ultra holo glitter & shimmering glass flecks. Immediately one of my favorites! The purple shade is very rich in tone and the scattered holographic finish adds a lot of interest to it.

Glam Polish Homicidal Tendencies is a dark teal scattered holo with ultra holo glitter & shimmering glass flecks. Yup, I love this one as well :-D. It's a gorgeous shade of teal, still noticeably green but with a lot of blue to it.

Glam Polish It's Alive!

Glam Polish It's Alive! is an emerald green scattered holo with ultra holo glitter & shimmering glass flecks. You can definitely see how green It's Alive is when you see it next to Homicidal Tendencies, and it makes for a great Christmas green I think. The holo seemed a bit less pronounced in this shade though it sparkled more in reality.

Glam Polish Trinity is a true red holo with ultra holo glitter & shimmering glass flecks. I love how this red has some brown to it - it isn't too bright, and it really lives up to the name it was given - Trinity was also one of my favorite story lines in the show.

Glam Polish Truth Be Told

Glam Polish Truth Be Told is an indigo scattered holo with ultra holo glitter & shimmering glass flecks. I'd say out of these 5, this the must have! The indigo shade is amazingly rich and eyecatching, and the holographic finish is made for it!

Overall conclusion
Glam Polish really it it out of the park with this collection! These 5 shades are all stunning, the finish is perfect with the basecolors and the formula is as great as I have experienced in the past. I'll most likely pick up the 4 other shades in this set as well when they become available.

My favorites are Truth Be Told and Homicidal Tendencies (because teal) but I love the others as well and would recommend all of them!
