Glitrix Smurfy

Good Morning Babes! Super quick post to share with you today. Glitrix Smurfy is a bright blue creme polish packed with small red glitter and silver holo hexes. Unfortunately with the weird star bottle and the formula being so thick, the hexes refused to be fished out. I really really cant stand this bottle because most of the glitter settles in the points of the star, and its impossible to get. The formula was thick but not a bad way. Application was buttery smooth, and reaches opacity in 2 thin coats. This bad boy stains like no other (you will see), so be careful around your cuticles! I used Seche Vite as my top coat. Onto the swatches...

What do you think of Smurfy? I will be honest and say that I'm  a little disappointed in this polish. I wanted more red glitter to translate onto the nail, and at least one stinking holo glitter sheesh. I almost didn't post these swatches because the staining makes me a little sick to my stomach, but they have been sitting in drafts for weeks, so I decided to go ahead and post them. I'm going to swatch Smurfy again in the near future when I have spare time on my hands, and patience to see if I have better luck next time with more glitter. Glitrix can be purchased from Lynn's Etsy shop. Thanks for stopping by :o)
