ellagee has been a favorite indie maker of mine ever since I first purchased Party Like It's 1999 in April. Shortly thereafter, Laura asked if I'd review some of her polishes and of course, I agreed. Well, several polishes, purchases, and swatches later, it was safe to say that ellagee was my favorite indie brand by far! Laura's formula and colors can't be beat and I just adore everything she comes out with. So, when Laura began taking applications for a regular swatcher in June, I applied! The chance to own and photograph all of her amazing, big-5 free creations? What an exciting opportunity!
I know the competition was stiff and a lot of great bloggers applied! Laura had a really hard decision to make and I am excited and honored to tell you that she chose me! Eeeek! :D :D :D Laura has been incredible to work with and I am having so much fun! And you guys are going to benefit from this, too! You'll be getting sneak peeks, first swatches of new collections, and giveaways sponsored by ellagee! YAY!
So, that's the story of how I came into possession of the amazing polishes I am showing you today! This collection, Scrumptious Sprinkles, is being released TODAY! And you get the first look at these pretties! I am dying over this collection! I cannot even describe how much I love this collection! Every single polish made me drool and the inspiration is one of my favorite movies as a child: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang! Yep! Awesome, right?! These polishes all have microbars (think fuzzy polishes) but these aren't those annoying bar glitters we all but despise. They are so tiny and cute! I LOVE THEM! Ok, let's check these babies out, shall we? This post is PICTURE HEAVY! Enjoy! :)
Chu-Chi Face: A clear top coat with black and white microbar glitters and tiny black, white, and black holo hexes. This is one of my favorites for sure! It's so versatile and I can't stop thinking of amazing color combos for this one! I chose to do two coats over Color Club Poptastic. This is definitely my new favorite black and white topper!
Doll On a Music Box: A yellow cream base with red, orange, yellow, and green microbars and tiny red hex glitters. This is two coats all by itself!
Don't Take Candy From Strangers: A black base with red, orange, yellow, green, and blue microbars. Named for the creepiest villain in all of the movies I ever watched as a kid, the Child Catcher! Ugh, he gives me the chills! I was so scared of him! This is two coats by itself!
Don't Waste Your Pucker: A minty cream base with yellow, green, and blue microbars and tiny gold hexes. This is two coats alone!
Musical Morsel Supreme: A peach cream base loaded with orange, yellow, green, and blue microbars and tiny gold hex glitters. This is two coats alone!
O'er Lullaby Bay: A silver lavender soft holographic base with white and silver holographic microbars and tiny silver holographic hexes. Another of my favorites! This beauty is absolutely amazing! This is two coats by itself!
Perfection in Sugar Confection: A pink cream base with red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple microbars and hexes! This is the first one I put on and I'm pretty sure I actually squealed with delight! Lovely! It reminds me of a frosted doughnut! This is two coats!
That Sweet Without Peer: A lavender cream base with turquoise, blue, and purple microbar glitters and tiny purple hexes! This is two coats by itself!
Toot Sweets: A blue cream based loaded with pink and blue microbars and tiny magenta hexes! Again, another serious favorite of mine! Again, two coats!
Truly Scrumptious: A shimmery white cream base with white, pale pink, and silver holographic microbars and tiny silver hexes. Another favorite! I love how delicate this looks and it reminds me of my favorite character, the beautiful Truly! :) This is three coats.
