Today I am very excited to show you the new Glisten & Glow The Dark & Delishious Collection.
I am super pumped about this new collection! Why you ask? Because I collaborated with Jill from Glisten & Glow to bring you this fabulously dark and yummy set. Glisten & Glow not only makes some of my favorite nail care products and polishes, but the maker is also a dear friend of mine. We have been close friends for a few years and talk regularly. Besides many other things, we share a love of dark colors on nails, for our clothes, you name it! So we wanted to share some of our favorites with you. Not only are these colors dark, but they are filled with shimmer and our other love – holographic micro glitters! Let’s take a closer look at the Glisten & Glow The Dark & Delishious Collection.
GLISTEN & GLOW THE DARK & DELISHIOUS COLLECTION
I had such a blast coming up with these names! They all have meaning to me and by me sharing you get to a learn a bit more about me. I hope you love these as much as I do! And yes, we both realize summer is right around the corner, but dark nails are sexy and classy all year long. All six of these went on with no issues and were opaque in two coats. I added the Glisten & Glow Top Coat to all of my swatches to create the gorgeous shine. Then I used the Glisten & Glow Matte Top Coat to all of my swatches. These colors look like suede with the matte finish. So friggin’ gorgeous! I also want to point out that the shift you see in the bottle shots are hard to capture on the nails, but can be see with the naked eye.
BLACK. COLOR OF MY SOUL.
“Black. Color of My Soul” is kind of the reason this whole collection came about. We both love the color black, especially on our nails! Even though not one of these shades is a true black, they all have a black base.
This color is a blackened golden olive shimmer with pops of silver galaxy micro glitters. Shown is two coats plus top coat.
Below is the matte version.
COLD HANDS. WARM HEART.
“Cold Hands. Warm Heart.” is something that my sister and I have always said. Both of us always have cold hands, but love with all of our heart. And this is another reason I struggle so much with thermal polishes. 😉
This shade is a blacked aquamarine shimmer polish that leans a darker blue with pops of silver galaxy micro glitters. Shown is two coats plus top coat.
Up next is the matte version.
SARCASM. MY 2ND LANGUAGE.
“Sarcasm. My 2nd Language.” is the truth! Yes, I obviously speak English, but if you don’t get sarcasm, you won’t understand half of what I say. Sarcasm doesn’t translate well via blog posts or text, so if I ever sound a bit harsh you know why. 😉
This is a blackened violet shimmer polish with pops of silver galaxy micro glitters. Shown is two coats plus top coat.
Below is with the added matte top coat.
SPARKLES & SKULLS
“Sparkles & Skulls” is a all about my love of all things sparkly ie: holo, glitter, diamonds. And for my love of skulls. I have a collection of coffee mugs with skulls on them, skull jewelry, and some decorations in my home. Oh and skull tees! Black skull tees are even better. Jill knew about my love of skulls way before this collection. Her, Sara (Cupcake Polish) and Missi (Different Dimension) got me a skull Alex & Ani bracelet for my birthday last year. Love those girls!
This is a blackened fuchsia shimmer polish with pops of silver galaxy micro glitters. Shown is two coats plus top coat.
Check out the matte top coat on this.
COFFEE & CUSS WORDS
“Coffee & Cuss Words” is my everyday life. I live on coffee and have a sign in my kitchen (right next to my skull sugar dispenser) that says “I drink coffee for your protection.” Swearing is another thing that happens daily…I don’t use the F bomb like a comma, but be sure that I sometimes need censored.
This is a blackened reddened bronze shimmer with pops of silver galaxy micro glitters. Shown is two coats plus top coat.
Next is the matte version.
LEATHER & LUCILLE
“Leather & Lucille” is named for my love of The Walking Dead. And Negan just happens to be one of my favorite characters. Yes, I know he’s the bad guy, but he is too good looking to hate. I always say ‘I hate to love him and love to hate him.’
This is a blackened emerald shimmer with pops of silver galaxy micro glitters. Shown is two coats plus top coat.
Below is with the matte top coat.
Up next I want to share some nail art that I did using the Glisten & Glow The Dark & Delishious Collection.
First is a coffee design, because coffee is life. I used “Coffee & Cuss Words” for the stamping, the Lina Nail Art Supplies Coffee, Tea, or Gonutz 01 plate and I used Glisten & Glow “Frosty Camel” as the base. Of course I topped it off with the Glisten & Glow Matte Top Coat.
Next is a lacy design I did using Glisten & Glow’s “Bang Ups & Hangs Ups” as the base. I filled in the stamping using “Cold Hands, Warm Heart” and “Sarcasm. My 2nd Language.” The plate is What’s Up Nails B004 on the middle and ring fingers. I used BM XL-02 on my pinky and index fingers. This was great shiny, but there was too much glare when I tried to take a photo, so I added Glisten & Glow’s Matte Top Coat.
The third design was done using Lina Nail Art Supplies Make Your Mark 04 plate, white stamping polish, and Color Club Harp On It stamped over “Sparkles & Skull.” I couldn’t decide if I liked it better shiny or matte. You be the judge!
I then did a wet brush design over black using “Leather & Lucille” and “Black. Color of My Soul.” Of course it needed to be matte. 😉
Lastly, I did a smoosh design using “Black. Color of My Soul.,” “Cold Hands. Warm Heart.,” and “Sarcasm. My 2nd Language.”
I hope you love the Glisten & Glow The Dark & Delishious Collection as much as Jill and I do!
