Glam Polish: Heart of Darkness Collection - Swatches and Review

*These products are Cruelty Free 


Glam Polish
Heart of Darkness Collection



Tonight I have Glam Polish's newest collection to show you called the Heart of Darkness Collection! This is a 6 polish collection inspired by the bad girls of literature/cinema/TV and they are in the new screen-printed bottles - same great square shape.




Continued after the jump...




We might as well just go alphabetically because I'm not sure I have a clear favorite this time - they're all stunning!

Bellatrix, was of course inspired by Bellatrix LaStrange, nasty witch from Harry Potter. It's a gorgeous green/grey/violet micro-flake shimmer polish in a darkened base. Two coats and one coat of top coat for the photos. No issues at all - smooth and easy.

Elvira was inspired by the funny and loveable and not-really-as-mistress-of-the-dark-as-she-tries-to-act Cassandra Peterson. I honestly don't know if "Elvira, Mistress of the Dark" is still around but in the 80s she was EVERYWHERE! This one is a deep blue-toned purple base full of blue and purple micro-flakes that appear to be color-shifting. There's also a great scattered holo in there! Two coats and one coat of top coat for the photos. No issues at all - smooth and easy.

Lisbeth was inspired by Lisbeth Salander from the Millennium Series. I know a Dragon Tattoo is sorta bad-girl and so is Playing with Fire, but Kicking the Hornet's Nest it TOTALLY badass! This one is a grey creme/crelly base with light blue and pink glass fleck and a tightly scattered holo. Two coats and one coat of top coat for the photos. No issues at all - smooth and easy.

Lydia was inspired by Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice! I'm pretty sure she was just misguided, fashion-wise. But then again, it WAS the 80s. This one is a blackened violet purple polish with loads of purple micro-flakes and I also see blue and red micro-flakes. Two coats and one coat of top coat for the photos. No issues at all - smooth and easy.

Tiffany was inspired by something I will never watch. I watched Psycho and The Exorcist as well as all the old Vincent Price-esque B movies when I was VERY young and no problem, but toss in a scary DOLL and I'm OUT. Tiffany was The Bride of Chucky and I think I only made it through maybe 1/4th of Child's Play so I didn't even attempt Bride of Chucky! This one is a lovely violet berry pink scattered holo with what appear to be magenta, blue and maybe iridescent micro-flakes. Two coats and one coat of top coat for the photos. No issues at all - smooth and easy.

And finally, Wednesday. Little Wednesday was the daughter of Morticia and Gomez Addams from The Addams Family. A standard in my house through the 70s and 80s via syndication. I most related to Cousin Itt - because of my hair but I could be brooding like Wednesday too! This one is a blackened blue base filled with micro-flakes that are purple and blue or maybe just micro-flakes that color-shift from blue to purple. Two coats and one coat of top coat for the photos. No issues at all - smooth and easy.

This is my favorite Glam Polish collection so far - not ONE isn't just absolutely stunning and those micro-flakes! As I said, it's hard to pick favorites from this collection but I guess Tiffany, Lisabeth and Bellatrix? What do you think? Favorites?

Pre-orders are open as of TODAY for the Heart of Darkness Collection on the Glam Polish Bigcartel site here. Shipping is available to both Australia and the US, and these shades will also be available from most of her international stockists later this month. You can also follow on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to stay in-the-know!
