Elixir Lacquers LE Elixiversary Swatches!

Hello readers! Have you missed me? ;) Boy, has it been crazy around here! We moved the first week in December from Georgia to Florida and bought our first house! It's been a whirlwind of chaos around here with the holidays as well as setting up the new house so blogging had to take the back seat for a bit. Things haven't calmed down that much as far as the house goes, but at least the holidays are over so it frees up a teeny bit of time for me to get some blog posts up for you.

I have a handful of polishes waiting to be swatched and I hope you are excited because Monday starts this month's Digital Dozen nail art week! The theme is Art so make sure you come see what I have in store!

As for today's post, I have a special polish to show you! Elixir Lacquers is having it's first Anniversary and Nicole created this gorgeous glitter polish in celebration of it! It's called Elixiversary and will be limited edition with only 75 bottles available. There will be three releases with 25 bottles available in each so I hope you get to snag one! The release dates are at 1:00pm EST on: January 16th, February 16th, and March 16th.

Elixiversary is a multishaped and multicolored glitter topper in a clear base. There are a ton of different shapes, and I am seeing white, blue, purple, pink, silver holo, and iridescent micro glitter! I think it would look great over a lot of colors and I chose to layer it over Illamasqua Noble. The blue squares and circles kind of blend into the base color at a distance, though, so maybe next time I'll try it over a color not so close to one of the glitters.

The glitters are heavy so I flipped my bottle upside down for a few minutes prior to application to make them sink back to the top. This is two coats over the base color. I did have to dab and place a few glitters where I wanted them and I didn't get any of the really large white hex on my nails, but overall this gorgeous glitter topper was worth the extra effort. I love the extra added sparkle of the iridescent micro glitters as well!

Circles, squares, hexes, and diamonds!

Hello, pretty rainbow!

Check out that iridescent micro glitter!
