Grace-Full Nail Polish Rainbow Sparklers Collection

Grace-Full Nail Polish is about to blow your mind. They definitely blew mine. This has been one of those brands that I sighed after like some girl in a 1950's movie...until now. I am super stoked to share the most rainbow of all rainbows: the sparklers. Buckle in, kids...and bring your sunglasses.

(promotional samples ahead)


Scarlet Sparkles
This bright cherry red is mind-blowingly holo and sparkly. It has a slightly jelly finish, which gives it a extra dimension in real life and photos. This shade was made for macros. It does dry with slight texture, but a normal layer of Seche Vite smooths things nicely. I used just two think coats for this one, but I bet I could have done one medium coat for this shade.

Girly Madness
This is an electric cool-toned hot pink holo filled glittering thing. I'm out of words. It's hot pink and shiny...I'm just dead at this point. Look at it. LOOK. It has a searing, quasi metallic feeling underneath a squishy body and I just can't even.  I used two coats here, but I bet I could make this a one coater too. Like Miss Scarlet above, it has a slight texture without topper but a layer of Seche Vite will lead you to the glossy land.

Eye Searing
Another brain-ruining glittering polish, right here guys. It is a fire-orange jellyish polish filled with orange, gold and holo glitters. It slides on easily, and dries with a slight texture that is easily taken care of with Seche Vite. I used two coats here plus topper, and I think it was just perfect.

Sunshine Naps
This gold glitterbomb is that year-round gold that even your mother wants to wear. I can see this being a staple around the holidays. I also love that it is not the traditional yellow in this rainbow. It applies nice and evenly; I didn't have any of that annoying "glitter pooling" around the edges that some glitter-dense shades have. Without topper, it is slightly textured and slightly matte...which I surprisingly enjoy. For these photos, however, I used Seche Vite over two normal coats of polish.

Lazy Afternoon
Ok, shit just got real. Until this point in the rainbow, you could maybe get away with saying "Oh these are nice... but I've seen them before". I mean, you'd be wrong but you could say it. Well from here on, notsomuch. This vivid summer green is holo and green multichrome and glitter all swimming in a slightly cool green tinted base. Still with me? Let's add to that a squishy formula that is opaque in three super thin coats. That's right, kids. This might be the perfect shiny thing.

Seaside Gazing
Ever wonder what a perfect azure would do if you electrified it? Well, don't bother because this is what it looks like. This super-reflective blue is definitely in with the red and pink in this collection, and I need to make some sort of art with that particular trio. This Whovian blue is opaque in two thin coats and is glass-like under a layer of Seche Vite.

Evening Dreams
I don't even know how to describe this. It is a warm, medium violet jellyish polish filled with holo and multichrome flakes. It is a wonderfully vampy-yet-spunky shade that I could literally wear forever and be pretty thrilled. In an effort to catch all the shifts in those flakes, I snapped a really quick, off-hand shot in indirect light...and it looks like a magical duochrome-thermal-dragonblood thing. I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite for these pictures.

Rainbow Explosion
This is the color palette of 2016, and I'm not just saying that because it has practically every color in it...mostly. This black jelly is chock-full of  multiple colors of multichrome flakes and sprinkled with holo glitter. The green flakes and the wine flakes are super dense and I only needed two coats for these pictures, plus a layer of Seche Vite.

Oh. And my youngest kid thinks it looks like sparkly salad. How many polishes can say that?

This collection is available today in the US shop and tomorrow in the Australian shop. If I had to pick a favorite, I think it would definitely be Evening Dreams...but then I also love the red and pink. The green is pretty serious too, now that I think about it.

Maybe I am not the person who should be in charge of narrowing things down. Which one is your favorite?
