Rocky Scintillations is a medium to light grey creme with violet glass flecks and shimmer. [My Thoughts: Application was smooth and was opaque in two coats].
Rocky Scintillations, by Mara from Gloss48: I love grey, there is something about this velvety hue that makes it intoxicatingly smoky, sultry and divine. My bedroom has fallen victim to my obsession. I am always rocking a little bit of grey and I am never afraid to spice things up and add my own “accent” to a look. Rocky Scintillations embodies that dark and sassy grey with subtle glistening hints of rich purple. It is the perfect amount of edge that compliments a feminine flare.
Song Stuck in My Head is described as a rosy pink crelly with a gold flash and gold shimmer. [My Thoughts: This leans more towards a peachy orange color with gold shimmer. Absolutely love the shimmer. Application was smooth and was opaque in two coats].
Song Stuck in My Head, by Guisell from Gloss48: Well, on a daily basis when I wake up there is always a little beat of a song in my mind, and it doesn't stop there, it last ALL DAY. Maybe that DJ phase I had affected my brain. The color I would like to design is a Rose Gold hue in the name of those golden hits of my past, thinking and listening to those songs inside my head brings me to happy places. What's the song stuck in your head?
Center of Attention is described as a linear holo that shifts from blue to purple. [My Thoughts: This is one of my favorites! I love the blurple color, and the linear holo is mesmerizing. Application was smooth and was opaque in three coats].
Center of Attention, by Laura from Gloss48: My shade is cobalt blue with an iridescent purple holo. I grew up as a middle child and became an expert at becoming the center of attention. This shade is reminiscent of the glorious dress that I chose for Bar/Bat Mitzvah season when I was 13 - black on top (shoulder pads - obvi), a-symmetric waist, poufy, iridescent skirt, and finished with a flower made from the same iridescent material and a big, chunky rhinestone as the centerpiece. There was nothing subtle about this dress - or my personality.
Autumn Soiree is described as a deep berry jelly base with a red and gold shimmer. [My Thoughts: Gorgeous red with red and gold shimmer. This is one of my other favorites! Application was smooth and was opaque in two coats].
Autumn Soiree, by Brittany from Gloss48: I am a total autumn lover, and when I was designing this polish I imagined myself sharing a crisp bottle of Chianti with friends, snuggled up near a bonfire on a chilly fall night, encapsulated in the aroma of crunchy leaves and smoldering wood. I wanted a burgundy that was more ruby red than brown--and one that had a little bit of copper shimmer to it, as if I were to hold my wine glass up to the fire to see the flames flickering and sparkling through the vivid crimson. So, I went with a striking berry red with a subtle copper shimmer only visible in certain lights. It's truly the perfect fall shade!
Bold Whispers is described as a sheer white crelly with a pink/red shimmer. It's made to be layered, but if you're patient, you can wear it on its own. [My Thoughts: Application was a little tricky, since it's so sheer. It would be best layered over white. This was four coats below, and you have to be very careful of your brush strokes].
Bold Whispers, by Kellie from Gloss48: Although you won't see me snuggled up near a bonfire on a chilly fall night, encapsulated in the aroma of crunchy leaves and smoldering wood, you might catch me elegantly hopping through a field of flowers on a fresh spring day while holding a bouquet of peonies. Excuse me, white peonies with the slightest hint of pink, that is. I am fairly obsessed with white (with just a hint of pink hue) b/c to me, it symbolizes femininity (imagine white lace), boldness (think white brick walls), elegance (hello white chandeliers), and most of all ... Perfection (have you seen an all-white room?!). White with the slightest tinge of pink captures everything a woman is and should be: chic, powerful, and at the same time--delicate.
Annoying Orange is described as a bright orange-y red with a subtle linear holo, and large gold holo geometric pigment. [My Thoughts: 2 coats and opaque. This one was a little thicker than the others, but not bad at all. I would say this is more of a scattered holo under the lights- Center of Attention is definitely linear though].
Annoying Orange, by Jill from Gloss48: I wanted the perfect burnt orange nail polish ever since I saw a model rocking a pair of burnt orange soft pants. Soft pants are my obsession, but I knew this particular cut wouldn’t work for me so I chose to mourn the loss of this pair by wearing the color on my nails instead. I named it Annoying Orange after my kids’ favorite TV show, but let’s be real, this shade is anything but annoying.
