massive e.l.f. review! part 3

Hello and welcome to my final e.l.f. review post!
Today I'm going to show you the final polishes!

There are a few big winners in this bunch so let's get started.

This half of the haul includes 2 of their polish sets. These sets are $3 each meaning the polishes inside are just $1 each! These sets are a really good deal.

Before I show you the swatches I want to show you a picture of the brush.

Sorry that this is out of focus (I didn't realize until uploading it) but this is the e.l.f. brush vs a China Glaze brush.
As you can see it is quite short and wide, but I still found it really easy to use. Some of the brushes felt stiffer than others but still quite useable!

Okay now for swatches!

The Pink Trio - Light Pink, Bubble Gum Pink, Fluorescent Pink

This is the pink set which includes three shades of pink. This isn't in stock on the website right now but it most likely will be back soon!

Light Pink is a very sheer pink shimmer polish. For people with stained nails like me, this doesn't really work on its own, but you could easily layer it over another color to add some pretty pink shimmer, or use it with a french mani!
My pictures show three thick coats.

This is Bubblegum Pink and the name was chosen really well! It is a perfect bubblegum shade. This one is a jelly finish and takes just 2 coats to look like this! I really like it. Very cute.

Fluorescent Pink is a big favorite of mine and you can see why! It's a gorgeous shimmery medium pink that covers perfectly in 3 coats. Very cute color, I love this one!

The Purple Trio - Mod Mauve, Sunset, Plum

Now this set is called The Purple Trio but the polishes are not very purple. This one is also currently out of stock but it should be back soon.

Mod Mauve is not one that I am a fan of. I just don't like this color. This one takes 3 coats to cover.

Sunset is a frosty pink foil. Not quite my color but I do like it! 2 coats.

This is Plum. And it is awesome. This is a deep, vampy red. I don't own any other colors like this one because I'm not a red girl but swatching this makes me realize that vampy red is gorgeous!
I believe this color is very similar to a very old and hard to find OPI color - Vampire State Building.
This is definitely a good enough substitute for me. I love it!

Now I will show you the last 3 random colors.

Copper, Golden Goddess, Teal Blue
These were three singular shades I picked, and these are $2 each.

Copper is a shade I chose because I've been looking for a copper-colored foil! This one definitely does the trick. Very pretty and shiny and unique. 2 coats.

This is Teal Blue and you can see that it is not blue at all! This is a bright green, and it is very pretty!
This one is very similar to China Glaze Four Leaf Clover. Not exactly the same but super close.
This is just 2 coats, the formula is great! This one is another favorite. (Of course. You know me!)

This is Golden Goddess and it is a very pretty golden glitter topcoat. This is packed with small gold glitter, and dotted with large silver holographic hex glitter.
Above is one coat, and here is 2 coats:

The two-coat look is prettier and more golden. This is a really interesting topcoat and I don't have another one like it. I'm a fan!

Phew! That was a lot of polishes to review.
Again, I hope you guys enjoyed this and I hope you found some great polishes to buy!
Don't forget, you can buy e.l.f. products here on their US/Canada site and here on their UK site.

  7. LOVED Bubblegum Pink, Mod Mauve, Plum and Teal Blue! Buuuuut, i don't see these nail polishes in the stores here in Brazil ;/

  8. You should add that in an hour, there will be 40% off on elf website for EU, UK and Italy! But it's for a couple of hours only, so make sure people dont miss out! I'm going to order from them now after your review :). I want the gold glitter and I'm ordering the Twinkle polish too! Seems so pretty from what I've seen. And I wanted the copper & teal but that sold out, bummer. Also I'll be getting some nude shades and the mint cream one. And some other blush stuff, and it's so cheap! Thanks for turning me on to them.

  9. Hi i'm a new follower! You're blog is lovely!!
    I placed my first elf order this summer! So far I don't really like elf polishes, but I would place another order just to buy the teal one ;-) (the colour is so beautiful) !!
    If you want take a look at my blog
    Have a nice day

  10. I can't believe they call that one polish "teal!" I'm glad I ordered copper--looks great!

  11. I LOVE e.l.f.! I had the same problem with their cuticle pen, but I discovered that if you the bottom off and run water through the pen to rinse it out, then fill it with acetone, it is great for cleaning up around the cuticles after finishing a mani!

  12. I love the colors! I got the same purple trio and the Plum is my fav

  13. oh lovely collection esp pink trio and teal blue...:)

  14. Love them! Must have Bubblegum Pink! ;)

  15. i love that teal color! i've been looking for a good review of elf polish! thanks so much!

    love, rach.
