Hello readers! The busy Christmas season has kept me quite occupied this past week but I'm back with Part II of my Glitter Elements review.  I have a couple more holos as well as a couple of sparkly jellies to show you.  Get read for lost of pictures because I went a little overboard with these.

Shhh, Don't Tell


First up is Shhh, Don't Tell.  This is a shimmery lilac with a strong linear holo.  The formula was great.  Photos show three coats with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat.





Voodoo Princess



I'll admit it - I wasn't sure how I felt about this polish in the bottle.  However, once I got it on my nails it turned out to be one of my favorites from all the polishes I reviewed.  Voodoo Princess is a purple jelly pack with holo shimmer, small gold hexes and medium pink hexes.  The really cool part is that the pink hexes seem to appear and disappear depending on which angle you're looking at them from.  It gives a twinkling effect as you move your fingers.  Photos show three coats of Voodoo Princess with one coat of Seche Vite.  You definitely don't have to use a thicker top coat with this polish though.  It dried very smoothly.  I was just in a bit of a rush and didn't want my polish to smudge.





Countess


Countess is a dark vampy purple with a linear holo sparkle.  The holo is even more apparent in real life than in the pictures.  I used three coats but you could likely do fine with two.  Again, like the other holo's, this had a great formula.  Pictures show three coats of Countess with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat.





Blizzard


Blizzard is teal leaning blue jelly packed with holo shimmer and a variety of teal and silver glitter.  The formula was great and despite all that glitter it dried very smoothly.  It was a little bit sheer.  You can see my nail lines peaking through.  You could easily layer this over a similar coloured cream to deal with that.  Pictures show three coats of Blizzard with one coat of Seche Vite.  The polish does look a tiny bit more teal to the eye than in the pictures.





Conclusion

If you love holo's then Glittering Elements is definitely the indie brand for you.  I was also pleasantly surprised by Voodoo princess which turned out to be my favorite.  Keep an eye on the Glittering Elements facebook page for info about the next restock . I can't wait to see what colours she comes up with next!
