If you’re a hardcore fan of Glam Polish like I am then you likely already know about the Glam Polish Fans group on Facebook, however if you do not then I suggest clicking the link and checking it out. Each month Glam Polish creator, Rachel Griffin, releases two fan group exclusives only available to those included in the group on a limited edition basis. Once they’re gone, they’re gone, so these are super beautiful super limited edition shades.
This month the theme for the fan group exclusives continues to be “Heroes vs. Villains” and pits Leia against Darth Vader, you heard that right we went to a galaxy far, far away this month. We had to find some horrible villains and if Darth Vader wasn’t pretty effing horrible then I don’t know who you’re comparing him to. (Guys come on he tried killing his mentor and the man that raised him, he’s got some serious emotional damage.) I love this pairing as I grew up on the original Star Wars trilogy, never liked Leia’s buns though, but let’s get to the polish and off the movie rant.
Each of the swatches shown is two thin coats of polish and one top coat of Seche Vite Quick Dry Top Coat unless otherwise noted. All images are shown under natural sunlight bulbs as well. To watch the live swatch click here.
The Power of the Dark Side
“The Power of the Dark Side” is a gorgeous black jelly with holographic microglitter, shifting glitter, and a rainbow of flakies throughout it. This polish is absolutely stunning, when it went on at first I thought it was going to require three coats, but it only needed two thankfully. I am in love with color and absolutely adore it. Black holographics are always a hit or miss with me because sometimes they turn more grey than black with the addition of shimmers and glitters, but this one is a true black and yet sparkles and shines. Perfect for any lover of the dark side. Just a note this takes two coats of top coat to get completely smooth if you stick with one then you’re likely to feel the texture of the glitter through it. You can see this a bit in the macro.
I’d Rather Kiss A WOOKIEE!
“I’d Rather Kiss A WOOKIEE!” is a white scattered holographic with a definite pink/fuschia shimmer throughout. I’m torn on calling this true white base though because both in the bottle and on the nail the base appears more of a light grey than white. The shimmer however is amazing and shines in any light it is difficult to capture without the right kind of lighting in the second image which I took outside in the sun with my iPhone rather than my regular camera you can definitely see the shimmer more. This went on in two coats and did not have a texture to it when top coat was applied.
These polishes as usual perfectly fit the theme and the chosen characters this month and I am so in looooooove with “The Power of the Dark Side” and I usually don’t like jelly’s at all. It’s nothing against jelly’s it’s just the consistency in them usually takes so many coats that they’re super thick, but somehow Rachel made this one flawlessly and it took just two thin coats. The fan group is also amazing and there are often updates on restocks and when shades are running low so that members have every opportunity to purchase them in time. It’s just an awesome group and community to enjoy for lovers of Glam Polish.
