Hello everyone! I’m here with a huge announcement! For those that aren’t aware by now, Sabrina from Polish Alcoholic has her own Etsy store, where she sells her own handmade polishes! Awesome huh? Thus far it looks like she’s doing pretty well. 🙂 I’m excited to say that I was the first person to receive polish from her (yay!) and so here is my review on her very first polishes, a collection of holographic awesomeness.
items in this post were purchased by me to use and review – but, I was provided with a 15% off discount code from the product owner*
Her polish arrived wrapped in pretty paper and tied with ribbons; a very cute and cheap way to ship her bottles I think, as they also provide extra padding to the glass. Smart move Sabrina. Of course, you already knew that. 😉 I’m planning on saving the paper for gifts some day along the line. I like to recycle. 🙂
And here is the collection once it’s all unwrapped…aren’t they amazing?! I opened them up and just started drooling over how fantastically sparkly they are. (ok, maybe not literally, but OH MY GOSH they’re sparkly!). I know none of my pictures do any of these polishes much justice, but I’ll try. 🙂
From left to right: Solar Luminosity, Orion Nebula, Intergalactic Dust, Seyferts Sextet, Dark Ages, and Kinetic Energy
This is a beautiful crimson red holographic polish. I was shocked (in a good way) at how sparkly it was once I put it on. Absolutely love this polish. 🙂
This one’s a very pretty pinky-red polish. I have to admit, I kept this one on longer than I usually do when swatching polishes just because I loved the color.
Oh. My. Gosh. Words cannot describe how much I freaking love this one. It’s got to be my favorite of this entire collection. Just in the bottle it’s a beauty to look at. I found myself getting lost in it’s sparkling depths. I quickly became mesmerized by the shimmery rainbow of colors…all inside one little polish. LOVE. (I kept getting distracted by my pretty shiny nails during work…lol)
Here we have a pretty light purple holographic polish. Again, beautiful. I wore this one for a couple of extra days as well. 🙂
This one is probably my second favorite to Intergalactic Dust. It’s a fantastic deep onyx color with dazzling holographic bits inside. It’s such a deep, pretty color. 🙂 It reminds of of the inky darkness of space, and the holographic bits make it even more believable by giving the impression of twinkling stars.
The last (but certainly not least) of the Out of Space Collection, this is a bright blue holographic polish.
These polishes are amazing. The formula is incredible (better than some name brands, in fact); smooth and even. They wear really well, lasting me about 5 to 6 days before showing any signs of chipping (no top coat, and I’m pretty rough on my nails – farming has its bad sides). The lighter colors, like Orion Nebula and Seyferts Sextet, took about 3 coats. Darker ones, like Dark Ages and Solar Luminosity, only required about 2 coats. In the case of Intergalactic Dust, I needed around 5 or 6 coats of polish to get it to be a nice solid color. Note: you could also use Intergalactic Dust as a topper polish to add even MORE shiny-ness (yup that’s a word now) to your polish, which is always a huge plus.
I’m very happy to have these gorgeous little polishes, and I can’t wait to get more from Sabrina. 🙂
The Beautiful Geek Rating: 10 of 5 stars (yeah, they’re that awesome)
So, let me just say: Sabrina, great job with these beauties. I wish you all the luck in the world with your shop, I know you’ll do really well if you keep pushing out polish like these. I’m definitely a gigantic fan of yours, and you can count on me coming back for your new polishes. 🙂
