Dollish Polish – Spectral Pup

Continuing our slightly spooky theme, here is a polish I picked up for Halloween last year that I have yet to share with you.  Spectral Pup by Dollish Polish is still available in the store BUT ONLY UNTIL OCT 19, and she does ship internationally, so you can get stuck in!

Anyway, lets have a look at some pictures!

Spectral Pup is a clear based polish, although it does look a teensy bit milky, packed with glitter that is orange and white with smaller pieces of iridescent glitter shot throughout.  Its based on Jack Skellington’s dog, Zero and was part of the Halloween collection 2012 (of which I have a few others….)

And the best it?  Its said to glow in the dark!  Now I don’t recall mine doing that, but I didn’t charge it up under a light bulb beforehand.  So if Dolly says it glows in the dark, its glows.

As you can see, I put mine over a coat of darkest black, which I think looks pretty awesome.  I have seen it over several other colours, including cream and white, so it really depends on what glitter colour you want to accent.  Those little iridescent glitters are really clear over black and man they shine and shine.  And I just love those white squares!!

I wore this over two coats of Wet N Wild Black Creme, which is part of the Wild Shine range, and then a coat of Seche Vite to seal it.  I based with Essie Millionails (now discontinued).

Dollish Polish is available via a number of retailers as well as directly from the Dollish Polish Website.  For those of us in the UK, our best and brightest stockist is Rainbow Connection UK.

Now that’s what I call Halloween!


Dollish Polish – Cold Winds Are Rising

Do you watch Game of Thrones?  You do?!  Me too, awesome isn’t it.  This is a GoT inspired polish from Dollish Polish called Cold Winds are Rising.  Its a super pretty slate gray polish with a mix of turquoise glitter to bring on the bling.

It was a bit of a pain to work with, the glitter sinks quite badly.  I did leave it upside down for a while after rolling it in my hands.  Most of the glitter does seem to the stuck to the side of the bottle, which is a shame, but its pretty so stick with me.  I also noted that if you went over the same area more than once there was a tendency to pull to glitter up to the nail tip.

What you see above is three coats, which each successive coat I did see more glitter make its way onto the brush.  I used Essie all in one as my base and after the three coats, I did use my usual Seche Vite to provide a thick shiny top.  Drying time was average and it dried quite smoothly, which is a plus.  The Seche just levelled off any bumps from my application.

Anyway, not long until Season 3 of GoT!!!




Dollish Polish – Greased Lightening

Sharp eyed followers will note that I’m in a bit of a white polish and glitter “thing” – week before last I had another Dollish Polish for you in the form of Expecto Patronum.  This is one I picked up as the Bonus Shade in a summer restock I was amazed to be able to grab it as restocks on DP go so very quickly! (with good reason)

Todays polish is Greased Lightening.  Like its polish sister, this one is surprisingly easy to work with. Its a white (slightly pnky in some lights) based polish with glitters in pink, red and white.  Its really unusual and unlike anything else I have stash wise.

Above is three medium thickness coats, not because of any formula issues, but just because I wasn’t concentrating as much as I usually do.  Base coat was my current fave, Essie all-in-one base coat and top coat was Seche Vite.  Application was easy, glitter dispersal was OK too.  Slightly thicker coats also stop you pulling all the glitters to the top of the nail.  Drying time was average and it dried just a hint bumpy.  Seche sorted that out.

Dollish Polish – Expecto Patronum

Quick post for you today, this is Dollish Polish Expecto Patronum.  And its a lovely.  Its a pale white base with baby blue glitters within it.

I did three thin coats of this, colour built up very well and dried really smoothly.  Formula was good and easy to work with, consider how glitter packed this is, it was a lovely surprise as I was expecting a bit of trouble.  I was lucky to be able to snag a mini bottle of this at one of the many restocks towards the end of the Summer (along with some of the bonus shades).  Drying time was good and it didn’t dry bumpy.  I used Essie all in One as my base and Seche Vite as a shiny top coat.  This wore really well and I got a few days out of it before any sign of any tip wear.
