I hope you all arrived savely in the new year and had a great New Years Eve. I have two more indies to show you today: Cult Nails Flushed and Elixir Lacqers Wynter Wonders.
I started with three coats of Cult Nails Flushed, a "true "Blurple" (blue/purple) buildable sheer with an intense purple/pink shimmer effect that appears to glow through the polish"

The pink shimmer is really intense, even if it seems pretty subtle in the pictures. Flushed is pretty sheer, but with three coats it's completely opaque.
On top of Flushed I layered one coat of Elixir Lacquers Wynter Wonders (Holiday Trio), " a clear coat loaded with holographic micro glitter, silver holographic squares, satin ice blue squares, and matte lavender hexes. You'll shimmer like the snow in this icy mix!!"

Wynter Wonders needed a good shake and careful application for a good mix of holographic base and glitters (on my first try I only got holographic base on my nail). It's absolutely managable if you're used to applying glitter polishes, but I wouldn't recommend this one for first time glitter users.

Wynter Wonders isn't too gritty, one thick coat of Essie Good to Go was enough to provide a smooth finish.
