Face of Australia Glitterati, Face of Australia Glitterati nail polish

Apologies for being MIA, but I’m back today with some MUST-HAVE nail polishes.  Face Of Australia deserve two enthusiastic thumbs up from me for releasing yet another lust-worthy, must-have, glitter-fest Limited Edition nail polish collection  – GLITTERATI!  There are 8 Glitterati nail polishes slash topcoats and 3 of them are milky glitters!  Yes, you may *squee*!

Face Of Australia Glitterati : Funky Town

Shade :  Milky violet base with rose gold hexes, black squares and black and blue chunky glitter.
Verdict :  Sadly, due to the violet base colour, it can dull down the tone of the glitter pieces.  May have been better if the base colour was lighter to allow the glitter to shine through.  I still like it a lot though.

Face Of Australia Glitterati : Saturday Night Fever

Shade :  A glitter bomb just went off with a combination of hexes and squares and round glitter pieces of various shades – emerald green, silver, blue, red and purple – in a clear base.
Verdict :  Perfect as a topcoat or on its own.  What is not to love?  Would look great on top of a black base.

Face Of Australia Glitterati : Heart Of Glass

Shade :  A light milky pink pastel base with all the girly colours – magenta, red, purple, white, silver – hexes, squares, bars…and wait for it…red hearts!!
Verdict :  MY FAVOURITE!!!  It’s girly, it’s pink, it’s perfect!

Face Of Australia Glitterati : Studio 54

Shade :  Fine and chunky rose gold glitter
Verdict :  I didn’t think much of it at first but when I applied it on my nails, I was like WOAH!!!

Face Of Australia Glitterati : Dancing Queen

Shade :  Gold hexes with black and gold glitter
Verdict :  Rather undecided about this one.  I think I need to apply it on top of a great base colour and this will really pop.

Face Of Australia Glitterati : Boogie Wonderland

Shade :  Pale milky blue base with silver bars, blue and green strands with mini hexes of blue, pink, purple and orange.
Verdict :  Another hit!

Face Of Australia Glitterati : Disco Inferno

Face Of Australia Glitterati : Lookin’ For Some Hot Stuff

Shade :  Mixture of red and pale pink chunky glitter combined with silver bars and tiny red glitters
Verdict :  Definitely hot!

3 Tips For Applying Glitterati

1.  It is tempting to shake the bottle to get the glitter to distribute evenly, but this causes air bubbles.  Instead, roll the bottle a few times.
2.  Apply a clear topcoat as some glitter pieces may curl up and feel rough once dried.
3.  Like all glitter nail polishes, they are difficult to remove.  Try the foil method where you soak cotton wool in nail polish remover and use foil to wrap around the cotton wool for a good 5 minutes.

    I actually LOVE the Studio54. And another tip to removing glitter nail polish? Use the DAISO nail polish remover. It works really well WITHOUT soaking or doing the foil method. I kid you not.

    I love this collection, I really want heart of glass, studio 54 and disco inferno. I want to try and get them on sale because I going on a long holiday in 2 weeks and won’t be able to use them, but I might just have to suck it up and pay full price (not that they’re expensive!)

    These are so pretty! I agree with the “rolling” – I had to do that with Heart of Glass otherwise I’d get 0 hearts!

      @Sarah, Gotta find those hearts! That’s what makes it “Heart” of Glass 😛
