Back in February, I entered the Sephora Hide and Go Gleek contest on Twitter, where Sephora tweeted a Glee trivia question after the episode finished on Tuesday, February 8th and I was the second person to answer! I won the ENTIRE collection - 7 full size bottles, the mini bottle set, and three sets of polish stickers. I was so excited!
Since season 2 is ending tonight (SAD), I figured this would be an awesome time to post it. Here are some pictures and swatches =]
I'm gonna start off with the mini set exclusives. I let my sister swatch these =]
First up is Sue vs. Shue, a deep navy blue shimmer. Not unique but still pretty.
Next up is Express Yourself to Yourself. Weird name...Madonna reference I guess? Makes sense since there was a Madonna episode, but not too sure about the "too yourself" part. This was AWFUL to photograph, and sorry for the crappy shots. This is like a pink-leaning coral jelly with shimmer in it. Four coats and still VNL.
Finally for the miniset exclusives, we have Celibacy Club, which is a weird name choice for this holo glitter topper. Nothing to unique about this, comparable to ChG Fairy Dust and the like. In my opinion, not opaque enough to wear on its own.
Now for the others.
First up out of the big bottles, lol, is Mash Up. This is 3 coats, dried quickly. Silver/green/lavender multichrome, similar I suppose to Wet and Wild's Grey's Anatomy and OPI Not Like the Movies, and maybe even Lippmann's Wicked Game I assume, even though I don't have those ones to compare. This one also has silver microglitter. Very pretty.
Yes, I needed 5 pictures of it. And this one may be featured on an upcoming giveaway HINT.
Next up, Diva-in-Training. This is 3 coats, and could serve as the Pantone Color of the Year, honeysuckle, but it might not look like it because it was difficult for me to photograph. It stained a tiny bit. I liked this one, and actually don't have anything like it.
Now we have Slushied. This one is also featured in the mini set. It's a blue cream, looks like a darker version of that cotton candy blue color. I loved this one =] Two coats and didn't stain!
Up next is Hell to the No. Isn't that a great name?! This is a very warm purple with gold shimmer. GORGEOUS. My favorite one in the collection. This is 3 thin coats.
This one is Gleek Out, also featured in the mini set as well. This one is four coats, still VNL. I'd call it a lime green/chartreuse glass fleck shimmer. Very pretty but very sheer.
This is Miss Bossy Pants, also featured in the mini set. My full size bottle is on backorder, so for this I swatched the mini bottle. This is four coats, still VNL. I think I must do really thin coats cause I don't know why all of these are so sheer. Bottom pictures have one coat of Celibacy Club on the ring finger. MBP is a fuschia shimmer.
Finallyyyyy, we have Who Let the Dorks Out? I was gonna swatch this one last, but then I decided to make it my NOTD, cause it's awesome. This is a teal polish, with blue and purple flashes. LOVE. Four coats. Must try this over black.
Can you spot the purple? Also, FYI, I topped this mani with a coat of Jessie's Girl Confetti, to amp up the purple sparkle, and it's AMAZING.
What do you think? Do you own any of these? Are you a gLeek?! Will you be watching tonight?! Let me know!!
Thanks so much for reading,
