*this polish purchased at a discount for the purpose of an honest review
Good Morning Polish Peeps! Happy First Day of Fall!!! I will be celebrating by having my air conditioning unit worked on :-P The motor that turns the fan died and a technician came out last week and we thought he had fixed it and lo and behold, it's not working. Granted, the weather has been beautiful and we've been enjoying fresh air through opened windows but it's something that still needs to be fixed. Yay for warranties! We're also having a DirecTV tech come out later as well since we are upgrading to the Genie. This solves our Netflix conundrum! I'm still a little intimidated by the fact that my new remote is voice activated o_O
I have an astonishing beauty on the blog today, ellagee's "I Wish You Peace". I don't have a nail polish shade, yet alone a holo quite like this so that was a deciding factor for one of the reasons why I chose this :-P Now you all know that this brand is no stranger to my blog ( you might remember the amazing Golden Lotus 24k gold flake top coat I reviewed this past summer ), I love her polishes and her Glass top coat is among my favorite top coats and one I use the most!!
"I Wish You Peace" can best be described as a deep and dark forest green linear holo. Such an eye-catching beauty!! Looking at this reminds me of my favorite Yankee candle, Mistletoe. It is the closest thing that smells to a REAL pine Christmas tree and it is heaven!! I know it's only fall and you're probably wondering why in the world we're talking about a Christmas polish but I wanted this one because it can be worn now through winter!!
Formula for "I Wish You Peace" was a bit on the thick side but that made for a breezy application since it was so easy to control. The first coat applied sheer so this isn't a one coater but everything evened out with the second coat. I probably could have stopped at that second coat but like I've stated before, my safe number is 3 so I did 3 coats for these swatches followed by a thin coat of ellagee Glass. I just absolutely adore the holographic shimmer in this. Call me crazy but I want to wear this and run around saying "Tis the season!!"
I was blessed with a beautiful amount of natural sunlight yesterday so of course I had to run out and get some pics. Thank goodness I live in the middle of the woods because I can only imagine the weird stares I would get if I had neighbors :-P
Bottom line is if you have yet to purchase an ellagee, make this your first one. I really think this is a shade that would compliment any skin tone and look great on any nail length. I simply love this on my nubs! I was telling Laura this morning about how in love I am with this and she said how it was a part of a Christmas Collection last year but she decided to keep it around. I am so glad she did because I would be heartbroken if I missed out on this beauty!!
"I Wish You Peace" is available HERE from her website and is $10.75 for a 15 mL bottle. I will warn you though, it's hard to choose just one! She also has a new collection inspired by The Fault in Our Stars that is currently available for pre-order. Make sure to 'like' Ellagee's facebook page so you can stay up-to-date with new releases!
