“Because Sparkle is NEVER Optional!”™ – Honey
I am addicted to glitter and sparkle. Don’t get me wrong, I am the biggest tomboy you would have ever encountered, but there is something about a sprinkle of glitter that makes you feel like you can conquer the World. I know you agree, lol. Glitter flows through my veins and you can find it in a variety of things through out my beauty arsenal – including my nail polish stash. Today I bring to you gorgeous nail polishes by Alter Ego Nail Polish, an Indie brand.
Alter Ego offers glittery and sparkly nail polishes for any taste. Ranging in shades and affordable for your pocket book, these gorgeous goodies are favorites of celebrity manicurists and nail junkies because they only require one coat for complete coverage and dry to a semi-matte finish. These polishes are long lasting and I love that they give my nails a stronger feel. The shades are formaldehyde, toluene and DBP free, Vegan and never tested on animals. This cruelty free brand has certainly stolen my nail polish lovin’ heart.
Plumber is a gorgeous blue hued lavender with fuchsia and purple glitter. Vintner is a gorgeous glitter with a blend of hex and circle glitters. Colors include purple, green, pink and a soft purple hued mixture.
Row Her Boat is probably my favorite out of the four. We all know I love Purple and Teal and this one has gold in it… hello, major crush. This gorgeous shade has little gold sparkle in it that gives it a really nice effect whether with or without top coat.
Well Read is a pink toned red with micro silver shimmer. While this is not a shade I would gravitate to on my own, I really enjoyed using this shade and thought it was gorgeous. I definitely think this shade looks better with a top coat, but to each his own.
These gorgeous polishes can be found on Gloss48 and are sold in duos for $14.00 (currently on sale – retail $17.00). Pick the colors you want and have some fun with the finish of each one or add your top coat to give it that polished off look. I will admit that I never used a polish with this type of finish or texture before, but I really like how strong my nails felt with the lacquer on. My nails felt like I had a layer of gel coat and they were quite strong. I have my eyes on a few more shades and can’t wait to order them.
