Trelly Polish's Alice collection

Today's post is pretty long but you'll definitely enjoy it! I have the Alice collection by Trelly Polish plus a bonus polish at the end. Let's just get started because this is a big one. 

First up is It's Always Tea Time
This may just be my favorite of the whole collection but I could say that about all of these. This was 3 coats with topcoat. 
There's so many different glitters in this one: just feast your eyes on it. 
Here's the worst macro I've ever taken in my life. It makes it look boring but seriously there's so much glitter hiding in that blue milky goodness. 

I Happen To Love Rabbits
This was one coat over CG First Mate with topcoat. 
Okay no this one is my favorite. For some reason it reminds me of a night sky and I just love it. I'm curious to see how it'll look over black.
Okay here's a better macro than the last one haha.

Down The Rabbit Hole
This is 3 coats with topcoat. 
I love this one so much, it's in a league of it's own because it's so soft and delicate. I was geniuinely sad to take this one off. 
Be still my beating heart some of the glitter is teeny tiny squares. 

We're All Mad Here
This is 3 coats of this vibrant purple crelly. It does lean towards the jelly side but that gives it an awesome squishyness. My pictures make it look like a deeper purple but the color in the bottle is accurate. 
 Seriously though, check out that glitter.

Someone Will Lose Their Head
This was two coats over Ulta Smoke And Mirrors. 
I clearly need a new topcoat haha, ignore the bubbles and admire the glitter!
I love the unique color combo on this one, it's unexpected but on so cute and girly.

Entirely Bonkers
This was 1 coat over OPI You're Such A Budapest with placement of the hearts. 
Not only does this one have some awesome glitter, it's got holo dust in it too! 

A Very Un-Birthday
This was two coats over Kleancolor Kawaii Stuff. 
This is such a happy mix of colors, it's so vibrant and so cheery! 

Do You Play Croquet?
I actually don't, how kind of this polish to ask though. In all seriousness, this was two coats over black. This also has the holo dust!
I love the pink/red/orange/yellow combo of this one. The holo is just an added bonus!
Plus those dots? I die!

Lastly is The Tag Read "Eat Me"
I'm dying over these nude and glitter combos, holy moly I love them! This was 3 coats with topcoat. 
I don't even mind the bar glitter. Because neon. 
This is so complex and so pretty!

Phew that was long! Here's a bonus polish that was an exclusive to the January Glitter Box!

Kissing Way Past Midnight
This one is SO. SPARKLY. If you didn't pick the January box up then you seriously missed out. Oh and this is one coat over black. 
Omg. I can't even with this polish. I'm dead! 
Love, love, loooove. 

It goes without saying that the formula on all of these was excellent, no fishing on any glitters. I am in love with all of Cassie's polish, they have rocked my world. Make sure you follow her on Instagram (@trellypolish) for updates on restocks and sneak peeks because I know It's Alwaya Tea Time is already sold out!

Trelly Polish Valentines Trio

If you follow me on IG then you know that I got some pretty epic nail mail yesterday. Here's the first group of many swatches, Trelly Polish's Valentines day Trio. 

First up is my favorite: Buttercream & Sprinkles
I love the nude and neon combo and this is gorgeous. This is 3 coats with topcoat.
There's bar glitter in this and you know what, I like it. So sue me. Maybe it's because it's neon bar glitter.
Neon pink stars, hex in all sizes, bar glitter, and at least 2 different sizes of squares. 
The nude base color is very similar to OPI My Vampire Is Buff. 

Next up is True Blue
This is a white crelly with blue and purple glitter in literally every shape and size. 
This was 3 coats with topcoat. 
Hearts! Plus so many dots so obviously I love it. 

Last in the Valentines Day Trio is You're Such A Sweet-Tart
This was 1 coat over NOPI Sweet On Pete with topcoat. 
This is such a happy glitter topper, and it totally reminds me of sweet tarts. And valentines day. 
Here's a close up on the nail.

And in the bottle. This is so yummy!

All three of these polishes had a good formula and excellent glitter payoff. 

I love that these polishes are valentines-y but not so much so that you couldn't wear them year round. Seriously I have big plans for Buttercream & Sprinkles.

Screw Love, Let's Party!

Truer words were never said haha. 
Today I have Euporic Lacquer's valentines day duo called Screw Love, Let's Party and is available now!

The first half of this duo is called Holo Back Girl
This was 2 coats plus 2 coats of topcoat. It's a pink crelly base with so much holo glitter it's insane. Plus a gorgeous shimmer. 
Because of all the glitter in this polish it was VERY topcoat hungry, I used 2 coats of a cheap topcoat and it still dried bumpy. I'm sure 2 coats of seche or another quality topcoat would smooth it out. 
Holy moly that holo glitter! It's so sparkly and gorgeous! 

The last half is B!tches Love Cake.
This was 3 coats over 1 coat of FAT Lacquers Troll Hair Down There. I wasn't sure if this would be opaque on it's own so I did the one coat of THDT first but I could have gotten this opaque in 4 coats (3 normal person coats). It's a soft pink jelly leaning base with a prominent gold shimmer and so many different glitters.
I also added Butter London Matte topcoat to this one, I love it so much matte!
Here's a matte macro, I don't know why it made me so red haha. 
Glossy topcoat.
And here's the macro. Holy circle glitter goodness, this is so soft and delicious.
