Recently I discovered Glitterfied Nails and placed a small order. Andrea was wonderful and added in a few polishes for me to review. I decided to split this up into two posts with the first one focusing on the great fall colors I received. All of these polishes can be purchased in her Etsy store. Each polish retails at $8.75 for a 15 ml bottle.
Glitterfied Nails nail polishes are as Andrea describes them:
"Custom blended glitter nail polish made with a 3 Free suspension base, cosmetic grade pigments, and solvent resistant glitters. Wear alone or over a colored polish for maximum sparkle."

Carnelian is from the Fall/Autumn collection. A red shimmery polish with an orange undertone.
The application was smooth and even with full opacity in 2 coats.
I was surprised how much I liked Carnelian on me. Normally red polishes make my skin look very washed out and pale. Check out that sparkle and shimmer.
Polished Copper is a part of the Shimmer Collection. A striking orange/copper with a hint of gold.
Just like Carnelian, Polished Copper has a smooth, even application with full opacity in 2 coats.
Polished Copper has just enough golden shimmer to make this polish glow on the nails. It has that lit from within feeling that I love in a polish.
Ablaze is also from the Fall/Autumn collection. This polish along with Polished Copper are the colors that made me want to place an order. A mouthwatering glitter bomb packed with micro-fine gold, red, orange and copper glitter. Red, yellow and brown hex glitters are reminiscent of the changing fall leaves.
Application of this polish was surprisingly easy. There was no fishing for glitters in the bottle. I didn't have to play around with the glitter placement on the nail. Everything just seemed to flow off the brush with ease.
Check out that coverage in 2 thin coats! I'm still stunned by the number of hex glitters I was able to get just by dipping the brush into the bottle.
I placed my order for the purpose of layering Ablaze over Polished Copper for a fun fall manicure. I think the two colors compliment each other is just the right way. Here is a photo with one coat of Ablaze over two coats of Polished Copper.
Of course I have to include a macro shot of this combination.
Overall I was very happy with these polishes. All three colors have easy, no fuss applications and great coverage. Carnelian is my favorite one in the bunch, and that isn't even one of the one's I ordered. I couldn't be happier that Andrea chose it as one of the one's to review.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Part two of this review will have some more glitter polishes from the Team Spirit collection. Happy Polishing!
