Ellagee 1985 Collection-Neons!

Ellagee: Swatches and Review

 *Disclaimer-Polishes sent for review*
Happy Wednesday everyone!  Today's post will be short on words but not on amazing polish :)  Laura from Ellagee was kind enough to send me samples from her newest polish line, 1985 Collection.  This collection features bright neons with a hint of shimmer.  At the risk of sounding redundant, I will say here that the formula on all three polishes was FANTASTIC...and I truly would not say that if I didn't mean it.  I liked these polishes so much that I stopped swatching just so I could wear a full mani for the next day.  Multiple coats were needed to build up the opacity of the polish but each coat dried super quick.  By super quick, I mean that by the time I got to my pinkie, my thumb and pointer fingers were fully dry.  I will describe each polish after the pictures.  Now for the pretties...

First I have to note the cute packaging, although the smarties didn't make it to the photo :)




First up is Way Orange.  This is the beauty that I had to wear as a full mani for a day because I loved the color so much.  I never gravitate towards orange but there is something about this neon orange with a hint of shimmer that literally glowed.  I used four thin coats above and the polish dried to a semi-matte finish.

Below is Way Orange with one coat of topcoat.




Next is Lime-O-Rama.  This is a neon lime green polish with a hint of shimmer.  Another winner, plain and simple.  I used four thin coats for the above photos.  The polish was not streaky, it wasn't runny, and there was no pulling on any of the three polishes.

Below is four thin coats with one coat of topcoat.



Last but not least is Totally Blue-bular.  The polish is a medium blue neon with a hint of white shimmer.  I found this one to be the frostiest of the three but this did not take away from its neon quality.  I used three thin coats above.

Below is three thin coats with one coat of topcoat.


Overall I loved every single one of these polishes, they were seriously amazing.  Ellagee polish is 3-free as well as cruelty free.  

I had no problems with streaking, pulling, or staining.  The neon pigments were will mixed, and I had no problems at all with any of the formulas.  If you love neon polishes, these are a must have!

These polishes can be purchased on etsy here.  I've already been checking out her page because I'm not sure if I can resist the other gorgeous polishes :)

  1. Those colors are gorgeous - I'm not so fond of the frosty finish of the blue, but the color is pretty nonetheless :)

    1. The blue was a little frosty but it kind of reminded me of a sugar covered blueberry!

  2. These are pretty cool. I'm usually not a fan of a frosty finish - but the brightness of these colors makes it look not so frost, and pretty sweet!
