Hello readers! Who's ready for some more Pipe Dream Polish? I know I am!  Today I have three more shades to show you.  Some new, some old but all gorgeous.  If you missed Part I of the Pipe Dream Polish review you can find it here.  If you're all caught up then here are some more polishes to feast your eyes on.

Electric Soul


Electric soul feature a blurple base packed with blue, purple and aqua micro flakes that catch the light.  The end effect is a purple nail that appears to glow blue.  I did find the formula on this one a bit finicky.  It felt somewhat thick but still took three coats to become opaque.  Because of this it did take longer than usual to dry.  The end look is gorgeous but does require a little extra patience.  Photos show three coats of Electric Soul with one coat of Seche Vite in natural lighting.




Time In A Tapestry


Time In A Tapestry features a teal-green shimmery creme base packed with gold and brown hex glitters of various sizes.  I found that the base appears more green in indoor lighting and more teal in natural lighting.  The formula on this one was fantastic.  It applied so smoothly even though it was full of glitter and no dabbing was needed to get the glitters all over the nail.  I used three coats but you could get away with two.  The end look is just gorgeous.  I'm not usually a huge fan of green polishes but this one has definitely won me over.  Photos show three coats of Time In A Tapestry with one coat of Seche Vite in natural lighting.




Feed The Monster


Feed The Monster is a glitter topper that was originally part of the Halloween collection.  When glitter for it became unavailable April had to discontinue it and I was so sad that I had missed out on it.  Then, April's glitter sleuthing skills found another source and Feed The Monster was resurrected.  I didn't hesitate to get my hands on it once I was given a second chance.  This polish features orange, purple and silver glitters of various sizes in a clear base.  The formula was excellent.  It didn't require any dabbing and applied quite smoothly.  Though not a full coverage glitter I think you could come quite close with three coats.  I tried it layered over a dark base colour for this mani.  Photos show one coat of Feed The Monster over OPI Ink with one coat of Seche Vite in natural lighting.




Conclusion

Out of these three polishes I think Time In A Tapestry is my favorite.  The shimmer + glitter combo got me.  Feed The Monster is gorgeous though and is one of the very rare orange containing polishes that I love.  I think I might add a little thinner to Electric Soul to try and make application a little bit easier.  I'm pretty sure it was the thickness of the coats that made it take longer to dry.  Hopefully thinner coats will take care of that little problem.  If you feel the need to include any of these polishes in your collection you can find them in the Pipe Dream Polish Etsy shop.  You can also find updates and the occasional sale code on the Pipe Dream Polish facebook page.  Until next time, happy polishing!

  1. I absolutely *love* the end result of Electric Soul. That polish is really pretty! I'm sad to hear about the formula. If you thin it down and it helps, let me know because it's one I've been eying for awhile now. Time In A Tapestry, all apart, is not a combo I'd think would be pretty. But then you put it all together and it's magic! I need that one, too.

    1. I heard back from April (the face behind Pipe Dream Polish). She has swapped the base of Electric Soul with a thinner one since I purchased my bottle. I literally place my order the day that colour was released. So, if you order a bottle now you should end up with a formula that's easier to work with.
