Glitter Gal Swatches & Review: White Pointer, Galaxy Holo & Gloss Boss

January 27, 2014

In this post I have swatches and review of three polishes by the Australian brand Glitter Gal. These three are the first Glitter Gal polishes I've ever tried. I've seen this brand across the blogosphere but never got to try it until now.
The colors I'm going to review in this post are: White Pointer (white creme), Galaxy Holo (holographic top coat) & Gloss Boss (glossy top coat)

Glitter Gal - White Pointer (10 ml) is a white creme polish. The formula was nice, I needed 3 coats to get a perfect coverage. It's a pretty and clean white color, nothing special there.
This shade is one of the new released creme formula polishes from the Holiday In Oz collection.

Glitter Gal - Galaxy Holo (10 ml) is a holographic top with scattered holo flakes in a clear base. This s a beautiful topper that will look great over any creme color, dark or light. I really loved the formula, it gives a great coverage with just one coat and adds such a beautiful sparkle.
The photos can't capture the radience of the holo sparkle, so you just have to take my word on it, it's really gorgeous! The tiny holo flakes reminded me of the ones that Zoya's Ornate collection have in them, and I really love that I can now use this Galaxy Holo top coat to transform my favorite creme polishes to this gorgeous effect.
For the photo below I applied one coat of Galaxy Holo over Barry M Watermelon.

Glitter Gal - Gloss Boss (15 ml) is a glossy top coat with a gel like finish. I have to admit, I wasn't expecting much from it at first, but then when I tried it I was actually pretty impressed. Gloss Boss pretty much wowed me with it's gorgeous glossy finish and the fact it didn't shrink my nail polish at all. Usually within one day I get some shrinkage around the cuticles when I use my favorite top coats like Poshe or Seche Vite, but it didn't happen with Glitter Gal's Gloss Boss. It kept its beautiful shine during a couple of days wear, and it just looked as if my manicure was fresh and new.
Unlike Poshe or Seche Vite, I didn't feel that Gloss Boss had a fast drying formula that can thoroughly dry through the layers below it. Still, this is a pretty impressive top coat that I used a couple times sine then and I really liked it.

In the photo below you can see the beautiful shine that Gloss Boss adds as a top coat. 
On the left I have one coat of Galaxy Holo over Barry M Watermelon, you can see it's a bit dull on it's own. And on the right you can see the version with one coat of Gloss Boss. The shine that this top coat adds is very impressive, and it stays like that for a long time. Well, I was impressed!

I hope you enjoyed my swatches and review. I can say that overall I was impressed with this brand and I would love to try more of their nail polish.
