Nothing to Disclose
Hello there! I’m popping by today with a guest post since Stacie is currently facing the “Great Camera Lens Disaster of 2017.” I’m Karel and I am the head writer and nail polish addict at Boom Shaka Lacquer. I’m so happy to be here today and I’m going to share with you one of my favorite brands of all time!
Today I’m going to review a polish from Digital Nails! Now, Digital Nails was actually my first Indie Polish brand that I ever bought. Five years later and I’m still a loyal customer. Today we’re going to look at Ultimate Ginger:
Firstly, let me say, this was an original version of this polish. One glitter in this polish became unavailable so Raph of Digital Nails substituted another glitter and renamed the polish so while this particular version is not available a newer version called Penultimate Ginger (which to my eye is virtually indistinguishable between it and the original) is still available.
Ultimate (and Penultimate) Ginger is a crelly-based glitter polish. It is almost a jelly but it has a very slight bit of creme in the base so I would call it a crelly. The crelly base is a sheer but buildable turquoise and it is jam-packed with glittery goodness. There are white and yellow satin glitters, orange and emerald green metallic glitter, and itsy bitsy teensie aqua holographic glitters. It is a veritable cornucopia of glitter.
Plus, this polish is based on one of my favorite Doctor Who episodes of all time, Vincent and the Doctor. So this polish gets me right in the feels every time I see it. I love when two of my passions come together, in this case Doctor Who and Nail Polish!
Application on this is lovely. It is a sheer polish so it does take three coats but they were easy peasy coats. I did not need to fish for glitter or worry that I wasn’t going to get a nice combination on the nail. It was not topcoat hungry so I was able to achieve a nice smooth finish with just a layer of my normal quick-dry topcoat.
I hope that you enjoyed this post and I sincerely hope that Stacie will be back with you soon!
