GlitterDaze Back To Rad Collection Part 2 Swatches & Review

I'm back today with the second half of the GlitterDaze Back to Rad collection! I posted the first six yesterday here, so here are the remaining seven shades. This half is on the darker side and includes some glitter/shimmer polishes. In case you missed it, the inspiration for this collection is the 90's era, which I grew up (in part) in!

Freak Of Nature is a deep muted mossy green crelly. This was way more sheer than the lighter colors in the first half that I posted yesterday. I needed three coats for full opacity. This is quite dark, looking almost black in lower lights. I still call my siblings freaks of nature sometimes, it's such a sick diss!

You've Got Mail is a dark slate blue crelly. You've Got Mail was such a cute romantic movie, and this is also a great catch phrase for the rise of technology in the 90's. This has almost the same formula as Freak of Nature, but was a little more opaque so I only needed two coats.

Y2K has a sparkly gold base with holographic silver shimmer and metallic multicolored shifty flakes. This had a thinner consistency but was not difficult to use. A little sheer at first, but I used a thicker second coat and it covered completely. You may need three depending on your application style. This is way more sparkly in person than I could capture. If you lived in the 90's, you probably remember the Y2K hubbub. So silly to think about now huh!

Bomb Dot Com is a chocolate brown with a crelly formula. This was the ultimate catch phrase in the 90's, but I still say it sometimes because I'm super cool. I had no trouble with this one and it was opaque in two coats.

Heroin Chic has a clear base filled with platinum shards, holographic shimmer and holographic microflakes. This is one coat over You've Got Mail. I feel like this is a polish I've been looking for but I didn't know it. I love it! The metallic shards show up more in low light while the holo shimmer pops more in bright light.

Lewinsky is a deep muted brick-ish cranberry red crelly, This one was similar to the formula of Freak of Nature, very jelly-like. More thick but also a bit runny, I had some pooling on the edges on some nails. I used two coats here. I do have to say this is kind of a unique shade of red in my collection though, I really like the color.

Boombox is a jet black jelly loaded with silver holographic glitter and shimmer bits. I don't know about you, but my boombox was an essential item growing up! I even had one in my front seat when I got my first car, because it was so old all it had was an AM radio. Be jealous. ;) This applied quite easily and covered in two coats.

All of the solid color polishes dried really shiny, but I always use a top coat even so. The glitter shade may need two coats of top coat for a smooth finish. These are all available now on the GlitterDaze website. The crèmes are $10 each and the shimmers/glitters are $12. How do you like these shades? Which half of the collection are you drawn to most? I loved the brights, but with the colder weather I feel this half is more seasonally apropos.

See you again soon with more polish!
