Glam Polish knows exactly which strings to pluck when it comes to my heart. I have been a Marilyn Monroe fangirl since childhood. My mom was a huge movie fan, and I grew up watching all the old movies. So I knew that this collection would be something spectacular.
(promotional samples ahead)
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
This is a peachy, strawberry blonde super holo with holo glitter and pink flakes. It is a gloriously neutral holo (yeah I said it) that will flatter pretty much any skin tone. I used two thin coats here plus a layer of Seche Vite.
How to Marry a Millionaire
This is a soft, brilliant pink super holo with holo glitter and bright pink flakes. It applies like silk, and I only needed two coats plus SV for these pictures.
I Wanna Be Loved By You
This shade is a gentle, cool-toned seafoam super holo filled with holo glitter and bright blue flakes. It was super smooth to apply and, again, two coats plus SV made my day.
Some Like It Hot
This is a glowing pinky-tangerine super holo with holo glitter and subtle gold flakes. This one, while not my usual color choice, might be the favorite here. It has a depth to it that I just can't get over. I used two thin coats plus SV here.
Something's Got to Give
This is an icy blue, but slightly teal at odd angles, super holo with holo glitter and aqua flakes. It definitely reminds me of the iconic pictures from the filming of this movie. I used two coats plus SV here again, and it was glossy smooth perfection.
The Prince and the Showgirl
This is a softly vivid violet super holo with holo glitter and deep violet flakes. It applies smoothly and opaque in two thin coats. I slapped on a layer of SV for these pictures. And no, there is no sharpen in this picture. For some reason, the violet holo just aggravated my camera a bit. Even in normal light, this rainbow was bright.
These shades, plus three more, are available on the 4th of March at 1pm EST in the Glam shop. As an old movie buff, and a Marilyn fan, I definitely love the whole collection. I think it speaks to who she actually was: soft and delicate while still glamorous and sparkly. I highly encourage you to check out these movies, especially Some Like it Hot!
