Glitter Gal Light as a Feather Nail Lacquer

Glitter Gal Light as a Feather Nail Lacquer ($14.00 for 0.30 fl. oz.) is a pale, cloudy gray with linear holographic shimmer. The shimmer looks mostly like white micro-shimmer more often than not, but you can definitely catch the holographic flash. If you’re unfamiliar with holographic polishes, the shimmer gives it a rainbow effect–you’ll see red, orange, gold, green, and blue/blue-violet. It’s not just one or two colors, it’s a slew of them. Nubar Earthen is the closest dupe I had to the base color, but it’s a much more of putty gray, less blue-based, and of course, it is not holographic.

This particular shade was almost opaque in two coats, but there was a faint sign of visible nail line. I’ve been really happy with Glitter Gal’s formula, though, because it wears like iron–I wore this exact shade for seven days without chipping and, again, minimal tip wear. The polish has a good consistency, right between thick and thin, with even flow; no bubbling, streaks, or thickening along the sides.

Soft and wearable, it might be a way to get something work-friendly with a little holographic kick that might be just under the radar enough to work!

  1. I kind of dig this, It’s like a dare wear glitter with it’s subtle milk grey tone but at night with spot light and flash going of it’s makes it club friendly as well. ^_^

    I was just stalking Leah Ann Larowe’s website over the last few days with my eye on the Glitter Gals and Ozotics and here you are reviewing a Glitter Gal! I like that she is a small business importing these unusual nail colors at such reasonable prices. Yay small business owners, please support them in this economy!

    Beautiful

  8. This color is amazing! I wish it were less expensive and/or more easily accessible… I don’t feel like I’d wear this often enough to justify the purchase, but this is a really neat winter color; something different than the usual holiday red and gold glitz shades.

  10. Thank you so much for the review! I love this color as it is so delicate and pretty. This looks amazing as a stamping polish and makes a gorgeous snowflake stamp. It looks lovely on you and the wear, as you stated, is amazing!

  11. This is such a gorgeous polish! Even when it’s not spewing rainbows..
