Glam Polish Truly Outrageous Collection

Glam Polish gets me. I am a child of the 80s, and I love all things bright and shiny and...outrageous. There, I said it. This collection is truly outrageous. I was a huge Jem and the Holograms fan as a kid (I had the full set of dolls, guys) so when I saw these polishes, I was definitely excited. This collection was made for only the most radical of us.
  
Glam Polish Truly Outrageous Collection


(promotional samples ahead)


Everyone Has a Secret Identity
This sucker is a bright, cool-toned electric pink glittering holo. There is so much going on here I can't even begin to break it down. It is everything you see, and more. The finish is really unique too. Without topper, it dries to a gently raised finish with a waxen-matte sheen. The formula was simply amazing and even, I nearly made this shade a one coater...though I used two plus a layer of Seche Vite for the shiny look in these pictures.

Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
Do you need an even brighter limey green? Well, look no further. This is another electric color that is just teeming with excitement. It dries a little more waxen than Secret Identity, almost akin to the glow of a gummy bear. This was also the heaviest formula of the six I tested out, though it was still easy to apply nice, even layers.  I used two coats plus a thin layer of Seche Vite here.

I've Got My Eye on You
Somehow this shade is at once soft and reserved and still totally radical. A vivid sky blue with a delectable pink shift. The formula on this disco-dervish is super fluid and quick to apply. It also dries to a slightly waxen texture, but I prefer the glossy. I used just two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite.

She's Got The Power
This shade is a saturated sour-apple green holo-bomb. There are delicate blue flakes peeking out at all angles, cooling this bright shade down a few degrees. This one is another that dries to a lightly matte finish, but I threw a topper on it because shiny things are my favorite things. I used two thin coats for these pictures.

Showtime Synergy
AHHHHH. This glitter. Holy secret-identity, Batman! This is a screaming, searing microglitter polish that would make for some gnarly glitter gradients. I used just two coats here, but I bet you could sponge on a single, opaque layer quite easily. I can see this one being brought back for an encore...or three.

Truly Outrageous
The namesake. And it is. I couldn't find a non-pixelated picture of the iconic shot...but if you googly, you'll come across it. This is a perfect rendition in lacquer. It is a cool, rich lilac. with a strong blue underbelly thanks to the flakes. This one also dries slightly matte, which makes that blue shift just sizzle. But I love the glossy look, and I followed my two thin coats with a thin layer of Seche Vite.

This collection is available now at the Glamporium. There are a trio of shades that I don't have...yet. But I promise that at least one is on my short-list. Which of these shades here are calling your name?
