Review: Spellbound Nails Rocket's Red Glare and Twilight's Last Gleaming

(Purchased by me)

Hello nail lovelies!

Today I have two awesome polishes from Spellbound Nails that are perfect for 4th of July! When I saw how perfect they are for the holiday, I had to snap them up.

The first is Rocket's Red Glare, a gently candy-apple red linear holographic polish:

I have on two coats here, although this is definitely a one-coater, and I also wore it as such. The formula and application on both polishes is sublime. The polishes dry to a semi-wax finish, so if you want a fully shiny look, you'll want topcoat (which I'm wearing here).


This is the perfect Americana red, I think--it's the color of cherry pie at a family barbeque, and the soft sprinkle of holo is a gorgeous subtle splash of sparkle. Beautiful on its own or perfect for any sort of seasonal nail art. Great for Christmas, too!


And then there's Twilight's Last Gleaming, a denim blue softly linear holographic polish:

This is also two coats with topcoat; the holo showed up a little more in these pictures, so you can see how gorgeous the flash is. This is such a great shade for 4th of July nail art, but also for denim nails, or any blue nail stuff you want to do. Such a versatile shade, and who can't use a little bit of holo magic to help them through the day?


I couldn't be happier for the polishes, just for every day use, and for my 4th of July art. I love the rich, saturated color (no staining for me with basecoat), and they were lovely to work with. Watch this space for some nail art with them...;-)


You can find both of these beauties in the Spellbound Nails shop; there is also a crelly and two glitter toppers in this collection that are perfect for the holiday, so check those out, too!

Happy polishing,
M.
