Revlon Elusive is one of the new limited edition colors from the Evening Opulence collection. This one was definitely a surprise. It’s a matte, jelly glitter on the nail. Not sure how someone decided to wrangle that out of their butt, but they did. And it’s not pretty.
So let’s just pretend the swatches above are what the polish looks like out of the bottle. Pictured above is three coats.
I found this at Walgreens.
And for lolz, I posted what they look like without a thick and shiny topcoat. Ew.

China Glaze Tinsel Town is an awesome, fun, and dense glitter from their Holiday 2011 collection. It’s fantastic, sparkly and really dense.
It sits in a smoky base, so you get even coverage. This is not a top coat glitter.
Pictured above is three coats.

Elevation Polish Maroon Bells is a lovely orange-brown with blue-green shimmer, depending on the light. This is my second time wearing this polish. Not sure why, but I hated it initially.
Pictured above is two thin coats for an even application. This applied beautifully.
Elevation Polish is available through Lulu’s BigCartel site here.

Rainbow Honey Phoenix Down from the Final Battle collection is a lovely glitter topcoat. It’s got hexes, squares, shards in shades of red and orange and white.
I featured this shade previously in this post when the collection came out. This one was my favorite shade of the three that I received.
I dabbed some on here and there over Catherine Arley 331. This is a great polish with no fishing needed.
You can purchase this through the Rainbow Honey website for $10.

Catherine Arley 331 is a rose creme. Makes for a fantastic work-safe neutral!
Pictured above is two coats for perfect application.
I love Catherine Arley polishes. They always apply fantastically and wear like a dream. Really not that much to say about this one. The photos speak for themselves.
I got this one through a trade with an old friend several years ago.
