Today I have a quick review of e.l.f. Glitter Nail Polish in Dream Maker. And, since Punxsutawney Phil predicted 6 more weeks of winter for Groundhog Day yesterday, I figured that I’d incorporate Dream Maker into a quick winter nail look. First, the review. There are seven shades in the Glitter polish line. According to e.l.f.: “Accent your manicure with dazzling Glitter Nail Polish. Each glitter top coat features different glitter effects for a range of sparkling options that best reflect your personal style. The bristle design glides color on flawlessly, and quick dry formula gives perfect application every time. Key nutrients infused with Vitamin E for stronger, healthier nails.” E.l.f. polishes are free of Toluene, Formaldehyde, and Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP).
Dream maker is a clear base with holographic glitter in two sizes, small round glitter and larger hexagon glitter. At first I thought the smaller glitter was silver, but on the nail you can see that they too are indeed holographic. The glitter does a really good job of flashing a wide range of colors when it hits the light in the right way. You can definitely see greens and blues, as well as reds and yellows. The formula is long-wearing and quite good for only a $2 polish. I’ve gotten a solid 5-7 days of wear, so it’s a good topcoat in and of itself. The larger hex glitters are decently populated for even application. I didn’t feel the need to “place” them, but sticklers for evenness may still want to. All in all, it’s a really good polish.
In light of out recent snowfall (I’m in NC), I opted to do this winter nail look to reflect snow at night. This is two coats of Dream Maker over NYX polish in Fig. I could have gotten away with one coat of Dream Maker for a more subtle look, but I wanted to really sparkle. I also feel like two coats is populated enough that I don’t have to place the glitter for it to look even enough for me. I definitely recommend Dream Maker, as well as the rest of e.l.f.’s Glitter Nail Polish line.
