*press sample*Hello lovelies!
So back in April I got a surprise package. I hadn't ordered nail polish for a while so it completely threw me off. I opened it up and was shocked to find 4 beautiful polishes sent to me to review from Aly's Dream Polish! I had put in a blogger application months ago and didn't hear back at all so this package was a complete surprise! I was having a horrible day when it arrived too so it was quite serendipitous that it arrived when it did!
I had intended to post this review much sooner so I wanted to apologize to Aly and to all of you for not sharing these pretties sooner! Let's get on with it, shall we?!
A quick note-all swatches are shown with Duri Rejuvacote for the base and 2 coats of polish. No top coat was used.
First up is Garnet Dreams from the DreamStone Collection. Unfortunately this was a very limited edition polish and it is sold out so I apologize for teasing you with pics of this beauty! Garnet Dreams is described as:
a dark gray holographic polish with a flirtatious red flash of shimmer
I love love love this color so much! It applied beautifully and dried quickly. This is such a stunner and quite a unique shade as well. I don't own anything like this and am so happy to have it in my collection!
Next we have Malachite which sadly I no longer see anywhere on the website, but hopefully it will make a come back because it is gorgeous! Malachite can be best described as:
a deep, kelly green polish with scattered holo
This green!!! A perfect shade of deep green and the scattered holo adds so much depth! It's fitting as well since Malachite is one of my favorite stones! Loving this! Application was just as perfect as I have come to expect from Aly's Dream Polish!
Next up is Ocean which can be best described as:
a teal blue polish with scattered holo
If I could properly describe the beauty of the ocean that would be the description for this. This blue reminds me of shimmering waters and really has me dreaming of the perfect beach vacation! Application was pure perfection and again this is such a perfect color for me! Aly did an amazing job picking out colors that I would like, these are all outstanding!
Last but not least I was also sent Invite Diamond which is a top coat from the Ballad of Serenity Collection. Invite Diamond is described as:
a scatter Holographic Top Coat polish /This lovely top coat polish contains 3 different types and sizes of cosmetic holographic pigment and 5 different types of holographic glitters
Shown is 1 thin coat of Invite Diamond over Malachite, Ocean and Garnet Dreams and on my ring finger I used 3 thin coats alone for full coverage. I love that the thin coats still allow the base color to come through while adding extra oomph! And even alone it is so gorgeous and really easy to build up to get full coverage! And not super chunky and textured feeling either!
Overall I am super super thrilled with this package! I was already a fan of Aly's Dream Polish and I am even more so now! I will absolutely be using all of these colors again in the future! A huge thank you to Aly for picking out these pretties for me and providing them to me for this review! This is just a small sampling of what Aly has to offer, be sure to check out her store here:
