HazeGlaze Elphaba9:13 PM
Do you remember the HazeGlaze polishes I showed you in a previous post? If you don't, you can see them here.
Today, I have some swatches of Elphaba, one of the polish of HazeGlaze's Wicked Glitter Nail Polish Trio. This small collection is made of 3 polishes in mini format. Each polish is inspired by Hazel's (the creator of HazeGlaze) favorite musicals of all time - Wicked the Musical! I will show you the 3 polishes but I'll start with my favorite, Elphaba.
This polish is described by Hazel as follows.
Elphaba is sheer slightly green glitter bomb packed with fine green and holographic glitter, copper, emerald, light green, olive, gold and black hexagons in various sizes. So unique and beautiful just like Elphie herself.

Final verdict: I really love this polish. I think it's my favorite from the wiked glitter trio! It has a lot of different colors of green hexagon glitters but also gold ones. And some green and gold square glitters are also present! All these glitters are suspended in a sheer green grass base. Concerning the size of the glitters, you've got tiny ones, medium but also large hex! I like the variety of sizes and the different colors of green and gold go well together! Application was nice. The glitters spread rather well on the nails. I used here 1 or 2 coats. For some nails, I used only 1 coat but for other I replaced/added larger glitters with a second coat. In conclusion, that's a really nice and interesting polish. I REALLY love the glitters! Maybe a clear base would also have been nice because the actual green base is too sheer to be worn on its own but when you layer it, you've got the sheer green coming out. For my current mani, it's no problem, but if you want to layer it over white or a light color, the green will show up. It can be nice or not...depending on your base polish.
I'd like to know your opinion, guys. Do you like sheer base colors or do you prefer glitters suspended in clear polish? I'm curious to know because I'm not sure myself what I prefer!lol
I will show you Fiero and Glinda, the two other polishes of this trio soon. So stay tuned! :D
The base color I used for this mani is Zoya Holly. Holly is part of Zoya Gems & Jewels Holiday 2011 collection and I was lucky to get it thanks to a swap I did with Traci. Holly is a deep electric green metallic polish. It has this glow-from-within touch that adds so much depth to the polish! I did 2 effortless coats but it was already near opaque after one. Application was a really dream, super easy! That's a polish I will wear a lot!
