Twinsie Tuesday: Glitter Gal Lizard Belly

This week's Twinsie Tuesday themes features one of my very favorite types of polishes: holographic! I thought I'd bust out a very, very special polish for this post: Glitter Gal Lizard Belly, a deep green linear holo. It's green, it's holographic, it's a no-brainer: Obviously I love this! Be forewarned, this post is very pic-heavy; I couldn't help myself! I suggest clicking to enlarge for these babies. (Also, in addition to the polish, just look at the bottle! It's jaw-droppingly gorgeous!)

Indoors, with flash:




And then some gratuitous bottle shots:


Pictures do this polish zero justice. It catches the light like nuts, so the fact that it's so reflective made it a little tough to photograph and truly capture how vivid the holographic effect is in real-life. Lizard Belly is crazy gorgeous! When the little rainbows peek through the dark base, it's like this polish is practically pulsating with light from within.


The formula is pretty good. It's a touch difficult to spread, but I think that may be because I didn't use a special basecoat, just my regular Essie Feed Me. I don't feel a special basecoat is essential for this polish, but it might make things a bit easier. I used two coats for this mani and no topcoat, because I didn't want to risk dimming the holographic effect one bit!

The only downside to this stunning polish is the price: $14 for 0.3 oz. Hence the reason I only have one Glitter Gal polish. But I absolutely love it to pieces! If you're a holo lover, this is an absolute must-have. Glitter Gal is an Australian brand but I bought mine from Llarowe.
