Glam Polish: Over the Rainbow Flakies Collection, Part 2

Happy March! It's nearly Spring, the time for flowers to bloom, the sun to shine, and for beautiful new colors from Glam Polish! Today I have part two of the "Over the Rainbow" collection, a set of limited-edition flakie-infused colors inspired by the beauty of Hawaii.

Glam Polish Ko Olina

Ko Olina is a dazzling bright teal with iridescent rainbow flakies, turquoise glass flecks, and a subtle holographic effect. This was definitely a favorite for me. The assortment of bright flakies look so magical within this color, and it's the perfect "tropical paradise" blue! Ko Olina had a flawless formula and applied beautifully, looking opaque in 2-3 coats. Shown here is three easy coats with top coat.

Glam Polish Ke Aloha

Ke Aloha (Beloved) is a bright rose-pink with iridescent green and violet flakies, blue glass flecks, and a subtle holographic effect. This saturated pink makes me think of bright, tropical island flora and fauna, just beautiful! The formula was also perfect with easy application and great opacity, and had full coverage in about three coats. Pictured here is three coats of Ke Aloha plus top coat.

Glam Polish Nani

Nani (Beauty) is a dark violet with green/teal iridescent flakies, blue glass flecks, and a subtle holographic effect. The bright green flakies contrast so beautifully against this deep purple. The formula was excellent, with perfect application and coverage, and looked opaque in just two coats. Here I'm wearing three coats of Nani with top coat.

Glam Polish Anuenue

Anuenue (Rainbow) is a gorgeous effect topper with iridescent rainbow flakies, rainbow glass flecks, blue shimmer, and subtle holo. The bright, iridescent flakies and shimmer look particularly stunning layered over darker colors, where they really pop! And outdoors there is a nice holographic effect which, unfortunately, I wasn't able to fully capture due to it being so cloudy and rainy all week, blech! The formula was wonderful, and absolutely packed with flakies, shimmer, and holo. Here I've layered two coats over Revlon Urban, a dark navy blue creme.

Glam Polish Kauai
Kauai is a forest green with iridescent red/gold flakies, red, gold, and bronze glass flecks, and a subtle holographic effect. This is probably my favorite of this collection! I love how rich and complex this color is, and how the copper and gold pair with the vibrant forest green-- just stunning! Kauai's formula was also impeccable, with smooth, easy application and excellent coverage, needing only about two coats. Shown here is three coats with top coat.

This is another set of truly beautiful and special polishes from Glam Polish. The gorgeous iridescent flakies we all know and love are really taken to a whole new level when paired with these rich, saturated hues. My personal favorites are Kauai, Ko Olina, and Ke Aloha.

The limited edition Over the Rainbow collection, part 2, and Cast a Spell collection, part 3, will be available March 4, 5pm EST (USA), or March 5, 8pm AEST (AUS).
