Glam Polish Darkly Dreaming Collection Swatches & Review

Press Sample

Today I have another fabulous collection from Glam Polish to show you, and it’s a collection inspired by the TV show Dexter! I’ve seen Dexter all the way through twice now and I really loved that show. I will admit I’m more of a fan of early Dexter (seasons 1-4 mainly) but still enjoyed all 8 seasons. Glam Polish created the Darkly Dreaming collection with Dexter as the inspiration and it consists of 9 dark, scattered holographic shades with ultra holo glitter and shimmering glass flecks.

Did you know that my parents current cat is named Dexter? You can’t go near him or he’ll maim you. Cat before him was Church – so bonus points if you know where the name “Church” came from.

Let’s jump into the Darkly Dreaming collection!

Glam Polish Darkly Dreaming Collection Dex, Lies, & Videotape Swatch

When I attended Cosmoprof NA this year, I wore this shade. It was gorgeous and I absolutely loved it – but I didn’t plan this too well. It was still a month and a half off from being released so I couldn’t do any “mani pics” BUT I can say it lasted all 6 days without a single chip. Wore like iron on me.

Dex, Lies, & Videotape is a deep magenta/purple scattered holo with ultra holo glitter and shimmering glass flecks. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Glam Polish Darkly Dreaming Collection Overview

Cover

I’ve had this collection in my possession since late June/early July and have actually worn several colors from it multiple times – so it’s safe to say that I am a fan of all 9. This is actually the collection that got me super excited about Fall and the darker shades that start to come out.

All 9 shades had beautiful, flawless application and the sparkle from all the holo was a perfect fit for the various dark bases within the collection.

Price: $11.00 Each | $97.00 Full Collection
