Alter Ego Nail Enamel is releasing 7 new shades and there is definitely a little something for everyone in here! From beige to pink to red!
There is also a speed dry top coat called She Shines! which I used with all swatches that have top coat on them (I will note it in each review)
Lets take a look!
Curses! Foiled Again!
I’m starting this off with one of my favorites! This is Curses! Foiled Again and it’s a gorgeous metallic silver shade that dries to a satin finish. I did not use top coat for these photos because I love the satin finish they have naturally. I used 2 coats for these photos.
Aussie Rock Hound
Aussie Rock Hound is a sheer blue jelly base with iridescent shreds within. I was expecting some to stick up or overlap, but they actually laid nicely in the jelly base! I used 3 coats for these photos.
Does The Splits
Does The Splits is a shimmery greige base with small black, red, white and gold glitters mixed in. I used 3 thin coats for these photos. I topped this off with She Shines! top coat.
In The Pink
In The Pink is the girly girl shade of the collection. With a vibrant pinky coral jelly base and small pink glitters mixed in – it screams GIRLY! I used 3 thin coats for these photos and topped it off with She Shines!
Loves Rock n Roll
Loves Rock n Roll is a tribute to Joan Jett and the Blackhearts! This is an off white satin finish base with large black hearts floating within. The hearts are a heavier glitter, so you might have to fish for some. I was able to get 1 -2 out per nail within 2 coats without fishing, but be warned that you may need to either tip the bottle upside down for a bit, or fish to get a decent number of hearts out. I used 2 coats for these photos.
I really love this polish with the glitters… but I already let the lady behind Alter Ego know that I would GLADLY buy a bottle of just the base! It’s lovely.
Perfect Panache is a gorgeous magenta creme base with small iridescent glitters mixed in. This gives off a gorgeous spark of color throughout the polish! I used 3 thin coats for this mani. The first coat did look thin and slightly streaky, but on the second coat I saw that opacity was building up and the streaks were gone. I did a third coat for full opacity. I topped this off with She Shines! top coat.
You ready for this stunner? Well Read just has sexy written all over it. Well Red is a classic red base with a super fine holographic shimmer throughout. I used 3 thin coats and topped it off with She Shines! top coat which gave it a rich, squishy jelly look!
These are some stunning new additions to Alter Ego Nail Enamels shop! I love the range of shades and finishes that she’s releasing which gives a nice set of choices. She Shines! top coat gives a nice glossy finish and dries fairly quickly. It isn’t as quick as Seche Vite, but it’s still a pretty decent top coat.
