Glitter Gal Light As A Feather NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 23 - 2012

When I heard that Glitter Gal polishes had made it across to the UK last month, I immediately skipped over to the UK stockist and placed an order for the two polishes that I’d been wanting for a while.  I first tried a Glitter Gal polish a couple of years back, and very pretty it was too – since then, the line has expanded greatly and my heart was going pitter-patter for their holographic RED… but more on that one another time (i.e. when I’ve done the photos).

Light As A Feather is a subdued holo which compliments the soft, ethereal shade beautifully.  It looks plumpity and squishy on the nails with a little visible nail line peeping through despite three coats.  I think it actually suits the calm demeanor of this shade to be a little sheerer.  Sure, it’s not a wham-bam in your face holo but it feels like a demure, more grown up version of the trend – ideal for those of us looking for a work-appropriate bit of sparkle.

Once the light hits it (please excuse my dry hands and nails), the holographic particles spring forth and dance a little jig on your fingertips.  They’re linear in placement and sparkle rather than dazzle with their prettiness.  Jenni has a great swatch of it here.

Glitter Gal Light As A Feather is priced at £8.75 and available to buy online in the UK at Sjmwell Nail’s & Beauty

    Don’t do this to me Charlotte! Holo polishes are my weakness and now I’m going to have to go and order a few of these. I picked up 4 of the Layla polishes and those are really nice, but it’s great that these are a bit cheaper. I’m thinking red, fuchsia, marine blue, green…

  5. Clare says:

    I absolutely love this. Really simple & classy

    Oh god this is way too pretty, I reviewed their purple recently and I was SO impressed with it! I love greys, and holos :-)

    That Is Gorgeous! I Don’t Usually Like Thhat Many Holo Polishes (After My Experience With GOSH’s Holo The Chipping Was Dreadful!) But I May Just Make An Exception For This, Understated But Gorgeous Nontheless!

  8. Anitacska says:

    Just received my order. They’re very pretty, but the bottles are tiny! Can’t see how they contain 9 ml each?!

    • I’d get me scales out (they measure mls, lbs, oz, the lot) but I fear I’d never get the polish back in the bottle!

      • Anitacska says:

        I’m sure it’s all there, just the bottles seem so tiny. Maybe they have thin walls though, sometimes they can be so big with not much inside. :) However, the colours are gorgeous, I can’t wait to try them out, don’t even know which one to pick first!

  9. Sydney says:

    Every girl can always use another holopolish. Especially when it can be deemed as ‘work-appropriate’

    What a stunner. Gee whizz.
