Alter Ego Nail Enamels
Gloss48 Duo

Continued after the jump...

Both of these polishes, as with all Alter Ego nail enamels, dry to a semi-matte finish. I've used one coat of top coat on my swatches to show you the brilliant shimmer.

Rows Her Boat is a gorgeous blue-leaning teal shimmer polish full of golden shimmer/flecks that mix perfectly with the teal base to create a sparkly green flash. Two coats and one coat of top coat for the photos.


Sold On Gold is a sunny yellow-gold shimmer polish with tons of golden shimmer/flecks. This one is a more sheer jelly/crelly that builds to a nice opacity in 3-4 coats and is great for jelly sandwiches. I've done a "dot-wich" on the accent nail below using Rows Her Boat sandwiched between layers of Sold on Gold. For the swatches, I used 3 medium coats and one coat of top coat.


What do you think? I've made no secret that I love finishes that aren't necessarily high shine and all of Alter Ego's polishes dry to a semi-matte finish. This is how I usually wear them but of course with a top coat they transform into sparkly, shiny goodness. I really loved how the top coat brought out the shimmer in these two so I wore them both with top coat...this time. To see them without top coat, check out Jacki's post over at Adventures in Acetone. Her swatches are stunning!

This is exclusive to and launches next Wednesday, October 29th at 11am EST. Starting Wednesday and for the full promotional week, the duo will retail for $14 and after, it goes back to the regular price of $17. 

OH, Gloss48 members get $10 off of their first order of $30 or more!
