Glam Polish: Over the Rainbow Flakies Collection

Since that darned groundhog says we have six more weeks of winter, let's warm up with a trip to the tropics! Today I have Glam Polish's new Over the Rainbow collection, a set of special limited edition flakie polishes inspired by the beauty of Hawaii.

Glam Polish Ohana

Ohana (Family) is a ridiculously good-looking deep, rich wine-red jelly packed with iridescent red/orange-to-gold and green shifting flakies, strong gold shimmer, and a scattered holographic effect. Just, whoa. I mean, look at this color: it glows! It BURNS! Ugh, love!! Also it makes me think of sparkling molten lava, which totally keeps in theme. Ohana had an excellent formula with flawless application, and full coverage in 2-3 coats. Pictured here with three coats and Glam Polish Magic Shine Top Coat.

Glam Polish Leilani

Leilani (heavenly flower) is a deep eggplant jelly filled with iridescent blue/green-to-violet shifting flakies, iridescent violet shimmer, a soft linear holographic effect. Don't those green flakies look so cool against the deep violet? It makes me think of Maleficent with her violet robes and glowing green magic. The formula was excellent, and application was smooth and even. Leilani looked nicely opaque in 2-3 coats, depending on preference. Shown here is three coats with Glam Polish Magic Shine Top Coat.

Glam Polish Hibiscus

Hibiscus is a saturated coral-orange jelly full of multi-colored iridescent flakies, gold shimmer, and a scattered holographic effect. This is a stunning as well as a rather special polish to me, as it reminds me of my Grandmother who grew up in Hawaii and loved hibiscus and bright colors. I think she would have just adored this color! Application was superb; very smooth and even, and looked opaque in 2-3 coats. Shown here with three coats plus Glam Polish Magic Shine Top Coat.

Glam Polish Moloka'i

Moloka'i is a bright, blue-toned apple-green jelly packed with iridescent gold and orange to green shifting flakies and shimmer and a soft linear holographic effect. The jewel-like emerald color is just gorgeous! Another wonderful formula that applied flawlessly and with great coverage, looking opaque in about two coats. Pictured here with three coats and Glam Polish Magic Shine Top Coat.

Glam Polish Nalu

Nalu (surf) is a vivid cerulean-blue jelly filled with iridescent green/blue shifting flakies, iridescent turquoise-blue shimmer, and a scattered holographic effect. This bright, ocean-colored blue is a tropical paradise in a bottle! The formula was perfect and had great coverage in just two coats. Here I'm wearing three coats and Glam Polish's Magic Shine Top Coat.

These bright, multi-faceted colors are a beautiful interpretation of lush and tropical Hawaii, and I love how Rachel incorporated the iridescent flakies that we all enjoy as toppers into these sparkling jellies. As the iridescent flakies in these polishes are no longer being made, these will be limited release colors. And they've just launched today, so make sure to pick up your faves before they're gone! My personal recommendations are Ohana and Hibiscus. Which are your favorites?
