Good morning, readers!! I received 3 polishes from Liz at Not Too Polished this week to review and share with you! Instead of doing all 3 in one post, I really wanted to get to wear them and not “swatch” them. So today I’m wearing The Eyrie on all of my nails!
The Eyrie and one of the other two that you will see soon, Dragonstone, are both from the as-yet unreleased Great Houses of Westeros Collection inspired by the A Song Of Ice & Fire novels. I haven’t read them(but I have watched the first Game of Thrones season and plan to start the second soon!) and I love when indie makers do book, movie, or show inspired polishes because it appeals to fans of the polish as well as fans of the novels.
The Eyrie is a sky blue jelly base filled with teeny holo glitters, white small hex glitters, medium silver holo hex glitters, and giant white hexes. It really reminded me of a holographic snow storm on my nails! There is definitely a “winter” feel to it and the added holo sparkle makes it so awesome!
I wish my lightbox could capture more of the holo sparkle. We can thank that wonderful Tropical Storm Debbie here in FL/GA for stealing all of my sunlight this past week.
Are you seeing a snow storm as well?
That was the only giant white hex I was able to get out of the mini bottle on all 10 fingers. But I’m glad I was able to get it. I think it would be easier in larger bottles with larger brushes.
I love bottle shots of indie polishes.
Finally a picture showing off some of the holo goodness!!
Orly Nail Defense
3 coats of Not Too Polished The Eyrie
1 coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast(double coat on the middle finger with the giant hex to hide the edges)
This is a lovely sheer blue jelly packed with glitter that builds nicely! I had to do 3 coats and can still barely see some visible nail line but that doesn’t bother me with jelly polishes. I think the many glitters distract from that anyway. It was very easy to apply and the only glitter that was hard to get on the brush would be the giant white hexes. The small white and silvers were on the brush when I would take it right out to paint on and I only stopped to shake up the bottle after each coat to bring the glitters back toward the top.
This is my first from Not Too Polished and I was not disappointed at all! I’m quite impressed and am excited to wear this as a full mani! I bet it would also look great layered over other blues if you didn’t want to use 3 coats each time.
You can check out Liz’ Not Too Polished Facebook Page
