Hello lovelies,

 

Swiss indie polish brand Cadillacquer has recently released a new collection inspired by Seek The Fire video game and today I will show you swatches of four shades.

 

I have reviewed for Cadillacquer before, you can find swatches of Breaking Bad Collection here and here and other polishes here and here.

 

Cadillacquer Seek The Fire Collection - Review & Swatches of Four Shades

 


Seek The Fire - denim blue crelly base with red glitter. IMO this is the most interesting shade from the whole collection..at least for me. I love the contrast of blue and red very much, it makes the polish unusual. I've applied two thicker coats to get full coverage. The polish dries a bit gritty because of the glitter so I've applied topcoat.

The Woods - green base with gold shimmer and fine flakies. This green seems quite cool-toned to me despite the fine gold shimmer. The formula was easy to apply but I needed two thicker coats for perfect opacity. It dried fast and smooth but I still applied topcoat.

Beyond The Walls - mushroom brown base with iridescent blue and gold sparkles. This shade is looks very elegant in real life, kind of like cool-toned taupe. It applied nicely and two regular coats were fully opaque. The polish dried fast but not completely smooth so I've applied topcoat.

She’s One Of A Kind - pastel grey with magenta shimmer. I really liked this shade, especially with matte topcoat (coming soon ;). It applied well but I needed two thick coats or you could do three thin coats. I just don't like doing three coats. The drying time was good too and I'm wearing topcoat.

Have you seen Cadillacquer Seek The Fire collection before? It is inspired by video game "The Last of Us". They all had good formula and I haven't encountered any major problems.

 

If you'd like to get your hands on Cadillacquer polishes you can purchase them directly at Cadillacquer website and at various international stocklists.

Hello lovelies,

 

I've got a swatch post for you today - I'm reviewing Glitter Gal creme shades.

 

"Nail Enamel like no other.  Our cremes are high gloss, have a solid coverage, smooth finish, soft touch, no bleeding, no balding and perfect levelling."

 

Tan Line - pastel peach creme with beige undertones. I'm starting with the only problematic polish but it will all get much better, I promise ;) The formula itself was good and easy to apply but once I applied topcoat (Glitter Gal Gloss Boss) the colour darkened and kind of shrunk a little bit which you might see at the edges. I think next time I'll try different topcoat. Otherwise the pigmentation was good and all I needed were two thin coats.

Off Your Rocker - medium pink creme. Beautiful shade that I enjoyed wearing and it was perfect for one of my Valentine's Day manicures. It applied very easily and was opaque in two regular coats. The polish dried fast and glossy but it showed the slight imperfection in my nails so I've finished it off with Gloss Boss topcoat.

 

Fun fact from press release: Apparently Off your rocker means "You are crazy!"

Booze Bus - light pastel lavender creme. This polish was slightly less pigmented so I needed two thicker coats for full coverage. It also dried very fast so I had to work fast to avoid patching. I usually don't wear colour like this as they don't go with my skin tone much but I enjoyed Booze Bus in this nail art manicure.

 

Fun fact from press release: Booze Bus is how Australians call police vehicle used to catch drunk drivers.

Tart Yourself Up - medium blue creme. It's a beautiful bright blue colour with good formula. All I needed were two regular coats for perfect coverage. It dried fast and glossy but I still applied the Gloss Boss topcoat.

 

Apparently, Tart Yourself Up is a famous Australian saying for “Get Dressed we are going out for dinner!” How cool!

She's a Cactus - light green creme. I can't really describe this shade - it is light green but not light enough to be called pastel; it is not dark enough to be called medium green. But it is still very pretty shade. The formula was a bit watery and less pigmented so I've applied two thicker coats. It applied easily and dried fast enough. I'm wearing Gloss Boss topcoat as well.

 

Last fun fact: She's a Cactus means something is dead/broken.

I liked trying out these Glitter Gal shades because the last one I've tried was couple of years ago and I think the formula has improved quite a lot. The only shade I wasn't a big fan of was Tan Line. It didn't suit me and I didn't like the colour change. The rest of the colours were really good and nice to apply. None of them stained my nails.

 

I've also used Glitter Gal Gloss Boss topcoat on all swatches. The topcoat has slightly thicker formula but applies well and dries very glossy. I've had a broken polish in the package which covered the topcoat bottle and even though I cleaned most of it the bottle doesn't look nice so no picture, sorry. However if you'll be ordering from Glitter Gall I would recommend you trying this topcoat, it is good.

 

Glitter Gall polishes are available at their official Australian website and you can choose where you live and shop accordingly. They have a US-based stock as well as far as I'm aware.
