1 Year Blogiversary Prize 3

Tonight's post is going to be picture heavy, again, so I'm just going to get down to business.  All of the polishes in this post were either purchased by me or donated for the giveaway and not for review.  Tonight, I only have three polishes from the prize to show you.  As always, click on the photos to enlarge them.  To enter, go HERE.

Obligatory bottle shots:

Elixir 1 Year Blogiversary

1 Year Blogiversary is a light purple shimmer with red holo hexes, lavender squares, rainbow iridescent micro glitters, and giant black dots.  I adore the iridescent flecks.  They are so unexpected and so pretty.

Application was a little difficult as it was a bit thick for my tastes.  However, I tend to like things on the thinner side, so the consistency of this polish may be perfect for you.  I will also say that I thought I had a polish I could use as undies, but I didn't have a single match!  This is three coats over itself, but I usually like to layer my glitters over undies.  

The glitter spread evenly with a little manipulation.  I can also say that this polish is so unique.  I don't think I've seen anything that comes close!

The dots were easy to dig out, but weren't initially forthcoming on the brush.  I had to actively dig them out, which was pretty simple.  You can purchase Elixir polishes at Nicole's store.  Follow her blogFacebook, Twitter, and Instagram for news and updates on releases.

Model City Polish Blue Eyed Beauty

Blue Eyed Beauty is a dark blue jelly with teal and blue holographic hexes and dots.

I'm not usually a fan of the giant dots, but holy lord, they are amazing in this polish.  Here, I have layered 2 coats of BEB over 1 coat of Cult Nails Time Traveler, a deep navy creme.  The depth and sparkle in this polish is astounding.

Application was super easy.  No pooling, bubbling, streaking, and the glitters came out of the bottle of their own volition fanning out evenly across the nail.  

You can purchase Model City Polishes at her Etsy store.  Follow Nina at her blog, Facebook, and Instagram for news and updates.

Enchanted Polish Dragon Spit

Dragon Spit is a rusty red-orange holographic polish that flashes orange-ish gold in certain lights.  Here it is in indoor lighting.

Dragon Spit has such complex coloring that I may not be describing it right!  I think my photos are pretty accurate, but I can 100% say it's even more gorgeous in person.  Here is Dragon Spit in direct sunlight at sunset.

Unlike a lot of holos, DS had great application, which seems to be the standard MO for Enchanted polishes.  There wasn't any balding, streaking, or dragging.  I didn't need to use my special Aqua Base, either!

Let's just gaze upon this beauty once more...

Ahhhh.  You can purchase Enchanteds at her store, Llarowe, Harlow & Co, and Mei Mei's Signatures.  Follow Chelsea on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for news of new polishes and restocks.  Be aware, though, that shopping an Enchanted restock is like shopping the Filenes Running of the Brides.  You'll need to watch for elbows and stampedes.

So, which of the polishes in this prize is your favorite?  I'm loving them all, so I won't choose favorites.  :)


  1. Oooh, the Model City is fab! Also, love the reference to the Running of the Brides! You must have grown up near Boston, too.

    1. Actually, I went to law school in Boston, so I remember always seeing the news footage of this. SUPER crazy, lol!!! And yes, the Model City is stunning, isn't it?!

  2. Dragon spit is my fav, followed by Model City. Pick me!!!!!!

  3. Oooh dragon spit is solo pretty (and I LOVE the name!)

  4. I am truly, madly and deeply in love with EP's Dragon Spit. And ROFL, ITA...what a PERFECT analogy w/the Running of the Bride's and those blasted restocks!!! BTW, I came up to go to college in Boston, and never went home (though I'm in the burbs now). I sure miss Filene's Basement, esp the Boston one with those glorious markdowns.

    I'm hoping I may have missed a way to enter this amazing giveaway, but fear I didn't. Having only a "dumb phone" I have been unable to sign up for an Instagram acct. Crossing my fingers there is some other way to enter. Either way, Happy Blogiversary on this great site!!!
