Glam Polish Technicolor World Collection - Swatches & Review

Saturday, 25 March 2017


Happy weekend everyone!  I don't know about you but I am so happy that it's the weekend.  It's been a long week for me.  Today I have something super exciting to share with you.  I have the new, soon to be released Technicolor World Collection by Glam Polish.  I nearly fell off my chair (not literally, but my heart certainly stopped for a second) when I received a message from Rachel asking if I would like to swatch this collection.  Naturally I jumped at the chance and now I have them to share with you.  The Technicolor World Collection is a rainbow of dazzling shades inspired by the costumes, set and music from the movie/musical "La La Land".


Another Day Of Sun is a bright yellow with pink shimmer, a hint of holo and a splash of fine holo microglitter.  I'm a big fan of this one.  Not only is it bright (I do love my bright colours) but I love the pink shimmer in it too.  Gives it something a little different.  The pink shimmer is definitely visible on the nails but my camera just wasn't quite picking it up well so I have included a picture of the bottle so you can see the shimmer better.  The formula is really easy to use.  My swatch shows three coats, but you can easily get away with two coats.  It was just a little bit too see through on the tips for my personal taste.

As Long As It's Pure Jazz is a deep plum intense holo.  This one I love!  The colour is gorgeous (both indoors and in direct light), the formula is amazing and it stamps well.  If you were in a rush you could easily get away with one coat for this polish.  My swatch shows two coats.

Chasing All The Lights That Shine is a mix of rainbow metallic glitter, shifting iridescent glitter and a hint of fine holo microglitter in a clear base.  Big fan of this polish too.  There are so many different colours happening that you can easily wear this polish over any colour.  I also really like the iridescent glitter in the mix as well.  The glitter payoff is great.  I used one coat (just brushing it - not dabbing it on) over Essie Excuse Me, Sur.

City Of Stars is a lilac crelly with shifting iridescent glitter and fine holo microglitter.  I'm sure it will come as no surprise that I love this one.  The colour is beautiful, the glitter is really pretty and the formula is great.  I used two coats for my swatch.

Here's To The Ones Who Dream is a jade scattered holo with shifting flakes, holo flakes, ultra holo glitter, and fine holo microglitter.  I think this is a really nice (and sparkly) polish.  The formula is great and is opaque in two coats.

I'll See You In The Movies is a red scattered holo with ultra holo glitter and fine holo microglitter.  Now I am not really a big fan of red polishes but I quite like this one.  There is a glitter in this polish that makes it glow.  It's really pretty.  The formula of this one is great too.  I used two coats for my swatch.

It's A One Woman Show is a bright pink with blue/purple shimmer, ultra holo glitter and fine holo microglitter.  Love this one!  I mean it's bright pink, why wouldn't I love it?  The colour is amazing, and the formula is great.  I used three coats for my swatch.

Someone In The Crowd is a cobalt blue crelly with iridescent flakes, shifting flakies and fine holo microglitter.  Again, this is really pretty shade.  The first coat did seem a little on the sheer side so I did apply a slightly thicker coat than I usually would.  I probably didn't need to do that as the second coat built the colour up well.  My swatch shows two coats.

What A Waste Of A Lovely Night is an indigo intense holo.  I think that this is a great polish.  I love the holo in it.  I think it would make a great base for some starry nail art.  The formula is a breeze to work with and it is opaque in two coats.

Why Do You Say Romantic Like It's A Dirty Word? is a light gold intense holo with pink and peach shimmer and holo flakes.  I don't tend to do a lot of gold polishes but if I do then this is the type of gold I like.  I also really like the added shimmers in this one.  They are so pretty.  The formula is great and applies so evenly.  I used two coats for my swatch.

Overall I am a big fan of this collection.  The formulas across the entire collection is fantastic.  They all apply so easily and quite evenly.  I think there is also a fantastic mix of shades too.  My personal favourites would have to As Long As It's Pure Jazz, It's A One Woman Show, City Of Stars and Chasing All The Lights That Shine.

I have done some nail art using this collection so I thought it would be fun to put all of them into a blog post as well.  I'll be posting that next week so keep your eyes open for that.

The Technicolor World Collection will be launching on Saturday 1st April in Australia (or Friday March 31st in the USA) from Glam Polish.  The full set of ten shades will be available at the special price of $108USD for the first 72 hours, after that the set will be available at the regular retail pricing of $12USD.

Which shades do you have your eyes on?
