Piper Polish’s Spectraflair Topcoat is a holo polish lovers DREAM!! Really and truly, this is the best quality I have come across. Last year, I heard about using Spectraflair in nail polish….and became obsessed with either finding a place to purchase spectraflair (everywhere I found sold it in huge expensive quantities, or tiny expensive quantities…) or finding a genuine spectraflair topcoat.
Four brands later – Piper Polish came out the winner by a LONG shot. Maybe it’s because the other brands I tried were not very generous with the amount of Spectraflair pigment they added, so it wasn’t as brilliant….don’t know, don’t care I’m sticking with this brand. Not to mention, she has exceptional customer service. When I purchased more of the topcoat a few months later, there was a a bit of hiccup with the order – and Erin made sure it was resolved in a snap!
Walk This Way
Walk this Way is a polish that Erin sent to me to include in the blogathon, and I don’t think it has been listed in her shop as yet. So, I’m not sure about whether or not this has some spectraflair pigment added – it looks like it to me Aside from that unknown, what I do know is – it applies smoothly, and opaque with two coats. Purple usually isn’t a color I wear, but this is sort of a purple/grey that really intrigues me – definitely one I will purchase in full size when it’s available
London Fog…oh, London Fog – what did I do to you? It deserved to be swatched much better than what I was able to do. The navy blue/grey jelly base is smooth, the square opal/blue/green glitter pieces were easily picked up by the brush – but I still couldn’t do it justice. Don’t blame the polish
Glitter Bomb (over light beige base color)
Glitter Bomb! This was made for me! (not really, but it may as well have been lol) When I swatched this, I wanted to be able to show off the mix of glitters (sizes, shapes, colors! wheee!) – so, I resisted and only applied one coat over a beige base. But, if you look at the etsy listing for Glitter Bomb, you can see it swatched in full coverage. Awwwwesome!!!!
