Alter Ego Vega 200 Vasarely 1968 - Polish Pickup April 2019 (Famous Works of Art)

Press Sample/Review

Hi everyone! I have the Alter Ego April Polish Pickup polish to show you today!

The theme for April is 'Famous Works of Art'. Vega 200 Vasarely 1968 is inspired by artist Victor Vasarely. I wasn't familiar with his work but a bit of googling showed me it is funky and colourful, perfect for nail polish inspiration. 


Vega 200 Vasarely 1968 is a vibrant green creme with bluem orange and red metallic flakes. I used 2 coats, no topcoat. The formula was good. This one doesn't dry completely smooth due to the flakes so I'd recommend a good coat of topcoat for sure. 


Vega 200 Vasarely 1968 will be available from April 5th to April 8th. The polish will retail for $8.50. No cap.

Cirque Halcyon & Simple Freehand Flowers

Hi everyone! Today I have a mani with one of my favourite polishes in my collection. This beauty is Cirque Colors Halcyon, a gorgeous rose-gold/copper metallic flake polish. It is so SHINY!


I started out with 2 coats of Halycon. As much as I love this polish on it's own, I fancied some nail art and...shock horror...actually had time to do some! So I pulled out my white acrylic paint and detail brush and painted some quick flowers at the base of my nails. I added some dots with a dotting tool and then finished the centres of the flowers with Girly Bits Another Brick in the Fall, which accents Halycon perfectly. I finished with topcoat as always! 



What do you think? I always go back to this design and love doing different variations of it. It always looks so pretty and it never gets old for me.

Alter Ego Moonlit Waves - Black Hearted Beauties Group Custom March 2019

Press Sample/Review

Hi everyone! Today I have another group exclusive from Alter Ego to show you! Moonlit Waves is the Black Hearted Beauties group custom for March. This is the inspiration pic! 


This is a black base full of blue/turquoise and purple shimmers/mica/microglitter. I used two coats, no topcoat. This one does dry slightly less than smooth so you'll probably want to use topcoat for a smooth finish. And just because well topcoating is best anyway ha! The shimmer in this makes me think of galaxy nails! Great if you want that look without any effort or it would be a great base for some galaxy inspired nail art!



Moonlit Waves will be available from March 1st to 7th only in 2 sizes and for Cynthia's regular prices 8.5ml for $5.00 and 17ml for $10.00. Don't forget to join the Black Hearted Beauties group to be able to purchase!

Alter Ego Mother of Pearl - Lacquered in White Group Custom March 2019

Press Sample/Review

Hi everyone! Today I have another group exclusive from Alter Ego to show you! Mother of Pearl is the Lacquered in White group custom for March.

This is a delicate shimmery white polish that you could either wear alone or layered over other colours as a topper. I swatched it alone in 2 coats, no topcoat. I really like this one. The formula was nice and it has a pretty sparkle to it and flashes of colours (which don't really show in the photos so you'll have to believe me unfortunately).



Mother of Pearl will be available from March 1st to 7th only in 2 sizes and for Cynthia's regular prices 8.5ml for $5.00 and 17ml for $10.00. Don't forget to join the Lacquered in White group to be able to purchase!
