She sent me five polishes, creme and shimmer, which make up the DazzleGlaze Sailing Excursion Collection, which releases this Saturday. So let's get to the swatches shall we?
First up we have a beautiful teal shimmer, this is DazzleGlaze Sea Shanty. This is a gorgeous green leaning teal shimmer very subtle blue sparkle undertone. The formula was great, medium viscosity and opaque in two coats. And the super plus? I did not experience any staining, which is hard to come by when it comes to teal polishes!
This lovely red shimmer is DazzleGlaze Captain of the Catamaran. This color is a super happy red, with almost slightly pink undertones, like a rose red. The formula in this was also very similar to Sea Shanty, it was a medium viscosity and opaque in two coats. No staining.
This light blue polish is DazzleGlaze Blue Sky Marina and it is the ultimate sky colored blue (sorry that wasn't very creative). I put this on before looking at the name and I was all, 'wow, looks so much like the sky on a sunny day,' which is what I totally think the maker was going for! This was also opaque in two coats, with a medium viscosity formula. No problems with application.
And finally we have DazzleGlaze Between Wind & Water. This polish is complex with gorgeous hidden shimmer, unfortunately it just does not translate on to the nail. Check out the hidden shimmer in this bottle shot below.
So the shimmer is definitely in this polish, but once on the nail it is pretty undetectable. The formula was also a little difficult to work with. It was thick and did not self level well. It took three coats for opacity. For the best application I would wait a few minutes between coats.
This lovely blue is DazzleGlaze North Star Compass. This cobalt polish is more complex and has a gorgeous hidden blue and violet shimmer This was definitely one of my favorite polishes of the collection, besides the teal. This was more of a sheerer but thick formula, not difficult to make work, but took three coats to be opaque.
The Sailing Excursion Collection retails for $8 each and is available on the DazzleGlaze website and the DazzleGlaze Etsy site.
Overall I was pretty impressed with this brand and I would definitely check out some of this collection if it catches your eye. So dish with me, have you ever tried DazzleGlaze? Which of these five polishes is your favorite?!?
