I was a little worried when the first polish that I opened actually broke in transit. The polish bottle was shrinkwrapped, though, so it didn't get all over anything. I was able to salvage the polish for swatching, though I suspect the texture was a little thicker than it would have been if it weren't opened.
Ebalay Dark Orange Gold Dust is a completely unique polish to my stash, and I thought it was just gorgeous.
This is the polish that broke, so the brush is a little sticky, but I wanted you to see how thick it is. Not as thick as an OPI, but definitely not skimpy.
Its a full-coverage glitter; this is two coats, no undies. I love that it's not a bright Halloween orange, more of a cooked sweet-potato orange, so perfect for the whole Fall season.
The second polish I chose was this Myviven LC11 Sapphire polish. The brush isn't as wide as the Ebalay brush, but it's still thick enough to get the job done, and no wonky mop-tops here.
You've heard me rave about the dusty colors this season, and I chose another one, but look at that shine.
I'm really impressed with this brand so far. The formula was every bit as nice as the local heavy-hitters. Smooth, shiny, self-leveling.
This polish was my fave of the bunch, and is probably one of my all-time favorite glitters now. This is Myviven PA16, Metallic and Purple dots glitter.
Over this gorgeous glitter, I tested ..... a crackle. I admit it, I wouldn't have chosen a crackle of my own volition. I never got much into crackles - they never worked well for me, or were worth the effort. I was pretty sure I wasn't going to like this one, either, so I just ordered a color I thought would look nice.
This is Myviven BA05 Cracked Misty Purple over the Metallic Purple Dots. It actually cracked! I rarely have had a crackle polish crack enough to see the polish underneath, so this one is definitely a winner.
Nice color saturation, and a matte finish which looks great over the glitter.
You could probably build this to opacity in 3 coats, but this was more of a dabbed on 1, maybe 1 and a half coats.
