Utopia's Polish Oh What a Circus swatch and review

Hi!

I don't know what it is about white or milky polish with glitters that is making me go so ga-ga lately, but I can't get enough. And this one is no exception. Virginia from Utopia's Polish is quite the creative polish maker! Shop her Etsy store and find her on Facebook! She has both large (15ml) and small (5ml) bottles on sale.
From her description: "This polish has a white base with blue, yellow, pink glitter hexagons, some micro purple, blue glitter. Named this Oh What A Circus as the colors make me think of a Circus tent or a birthday party and i like the song from Evita Oh! What a Circus."
 She wrote me that she was out of glitter suspension base so my sample was sent in regular base. It did prove to be a challenging application, with thin spots and pooling, and the glitter not suspended evenly. EVEN so, I love this polish and was able to get it looking good in 2 coats :) I do intend to purchase the full bottle and Virginia has assured me that ALL polishes are made with glitter suspension base now, so there should be no issues with the formula. This is base coat, 2 coats of polish and Seche Vite top coat. 

What do you think? Are you being swept away by the current Indie explosion? Do you love milky glitters too?


Thanks for reading :)

  4. I'm loving the milky glitters right now, too!
    If you don't mind me asking, how do you get involved with Etsy brands such as this and the beautiful F4 polishes you've been posting about recently? Do you ask them, or do they approach you? I'm relatively new to nail blogging and just curious. You can send me an email at ecm.dancer@gmail.com :)

  5. I did something similar and wanted to name the outcome "Birthday Party," because it made me feel like celebrating. I simply used a sparkle white and did an overlay of a glitter polish. This polish really does make me think of a circus.
