Glitter Gal Shade Shifter Soft – Daybreak Swatches and Review

I have a fabulous polish from Glitter Gal to show you all tonight!  Glitter Gal sent one of their new Shade Shifter Soft colors in Daybreak!  Now a little about their Shade Shifter Line:

“Shade Shifters” are a metallic shade shifting finish with intense primary color effect which reflects a different color spectrum when viewed at a different angle. These affects are similar to those you see on wings of exotic beetles – a transition from one shade to another when viewed from different angles. There are 2 distinct finishes available for our Shade Shifter range – Brilliant and Soft.

“Brilliant”- very bright glitter effect showing slightly larger particles

“Soft” – more smooth polished look with finer particles. 

 I took two separate pictures for this review.  Both alone and again over black.  The color is very wearable either way!

Daybreak – Soft:

Alone, Daybreak is a gorgeous deep copper undertone with a green shimmer that is visible to different degrees at different angles.   I used 3 coats for this picture and I actually love this color on it’s own!  Some brush strokes are mildly visible but nothing that would stop me from wearing it again.  No top coat used for these photos.  Glitter Gal Daybreak dries with a nice glossy finish

Daybreak – Soft (over Black):

Now here is where the “Shade Shifter” comes into play.  Over black polish Daybreak turns into a gorgeous multichrome color.  Daybreak flashes violet, rust and blue.  Absolutely gorgeous!  I’m a huge lover of multichrome polishes!  Again, some slight brush strokes are visible, but it really isn’t too bad.  I only used one coat of Daybreak over a black cream polish. No top coat used for these photos.  Glitter Gal Daybreak dries with a nice glossy finish.  This was incredibly difficult to photograph and the color shift is so much more than a photo will show!  LOVE!

 Glitter Gal Nail Polishes are TFR free, Formaldehyde free,  DPB free and Toluene free.

I will have another Glitter Gal polish to share with you tomorrow night from their Transitions line!

Pricing: $17.95 for a 15 ml bottle

WOWZA! This might make me break down and spend over my limit for a bottle of polish! It’s mystifying!

Amazing! I loved this polish!
Both ways are very beautiful, but I would use on black polish ;)
