My usual weekend flurry of nail blogs did not happen this weekend. But I wanted to get at least one more in before my Beautiful Weekend officially comes to an end. For this post, I want to share the Lost Princess Collection from Glam Polish. With our current cold, snowy weather and gray, cloudy skies (which, I know, I keep talking about — ha, ha!), I go back and forth between wanting to see “snowy” sorts of neutrals and the brighter colors of spring. For this post, I am feeding the “show the brighter colors” part of my heart.
This collection literally had me at “Hello”. As soon as I saw it and that it was inspired by Tangled, I knew I NEEDED these pretties in my life and my stash. NEEDED THEM! I love that movie. No, I think it’s even more than that. Whatever is beyond love and just short of “obsession” — that’s how I feel about that movie. It’s one of the movies I watch when I am feeling really down. And I think this collection captures the spirit of this movie perfectly. So let’s take a look at these pretty polishes! Huzzah!
Alright, Blondie is a light, bright, almost grape-toned purple base with color-shifting flakes. I can see shifts to gold and brighter pink. This polish has a pretty fab formula. I found it easy to apply and build to full opacity in 2-3 coats.
This is so, so pretty. I love the softness of the purple base. To my eye, it is just slightly dusty, which makes it wearable across pretty much every season of the year. I love all the flakes in here and the color shifts from them. This one seems to glow from within on every layer of the manicure. I think about Rapunzel whenever I look at this polish. It’s the purple of her dress and the blonde of her hair.
At Last I See the Light is a dark blue to blurple base with gold and magenta flakes. I’m not sure if the magenta flakes are color shifting or not. I pretty much just saw this strong magenta color with them. This polish has a great formula. I found it applied and built easily to full opacity in 2-3 coats.
Oh my goodness!! This polish is so, so pretty! Y’all know Mama loves this base color. It is perfection to me. And the golds and magentas make a beautiful contrast with it. It really reminds me of that scene in the movie where Eugene and Rapunzel are out on the lake and setting their lantern free. It makes me think of all those golden, flickering lights from the lanterns floating away against a deep, dark night sky. Not for nothing, but I hear the song in my head every time I read the name of this one — ha, ha!
BEST DAY EVER! is a bright and tangy green base with gold flakes and bright pink matte glitters. This polish has a great formula. I liked the opacity in 2-3 coats.
Okay. I’ve gotta say it: BEST POLISH EVER! But seriously, look how beautiful this one is! I love the brightness to it. I also love that the green has a yellow undertone to it.
Eugene! is a vibrant blue-green base with iridescent flakes, small silver glitters, and small-ish bar glitters. I was able to see flashes of pink, blue, and purple from the flakes all through this polish. This one has a great formula. It is easy to build to full opacity in 2-3 coats.
This polish is super pretty! I love the aqua/turquoise tones of the base color. And the iridescent flakes/shreds shift beautifully from pink to purple to blues. Then, when you look at it up close and personal, you can see all those smaller glitters and bars. I’m not always a fan of the bar-type glitters, but I love how it gives this polish so much depth and detail.
Flower, Gleam and Glow is a yellow base with pink and purple glitters. This polish has a good formula. It was opaque for me in 2-3 coats.
This polish is like the entire movie wrapped up in one polish. It kind of amazes me that Glam Polish managed to capture the spirit of this film so well. When I see this polish, I think about how Rapunzel subconsciously worked the Flower into all of her artwork, as well as images of the sun. I think about the flashbacks of her as a baby with beautiful blonde hair. I think about the purple flag and golden sun that symbolized the kingdom and its lost princess. Just … so many movie thoughts! Just on its own, this is a gorgeous polish. I love how light and bright the base color is. And the contrast of purple and pink glitters is perfection.
I’m So Glad I Left My Tower is a clear base with gold glitter and gold shards and pink/purple shards. I can’t decide if the pink/purple shards are only purple or only pink or if they color shift from pink to purple. Either way: there are golds and pinks and purples in here! This polish has a great formula. It was easy to apply, and I liked the opacity in 3-4 coats.
I love me some glittery gold polish, y’all! This has layers and layers of golden goodness because of the softer gold base, which is then topped off with the brighter, bolder gold of the shards. And the pinks/purples are a beautiful and regal contrast.
I’ve Got a Dream is a white or off-white base with shimmer, gold shards, and color-shifting shards. I can see greens, purples, and oranges in the color shifts. This polish has a good formula. It was opaque for me in 2-3 coats.
This polish is packed with goodness and pretty things! PACKED!! I love the softness of the base color. It shows off all the color shifts from the shards to perfection. I particularly enjoyed seeing the greens and purple shifts, but the coppery golds are also really beautiful.
A Little Adventure, A Little Rebellion is a milky white base with green, pink purple, orange, and neon green glitters. This polish has a good formula. It was beautifully opaque for me in 3-4 coats.
So. Much. FUN!!! That is the first thing I think every time I look at photos of this polish. I love all the bright colors from the glitters, and I love the soft whiteness of the base color. This is such a cheerful and happy polish. It’s like wearing “joy” on my nails.
Oh Great, Now I’m the Bad Guy is a dark reddish-pink base with black and gold glitters. I feel like I can see some purple in here, too, but it looks more red in the bottle. This polish has a good formula. I liked the opacity in 2-3 coats.
This is so, so bold. I love how the base color looks red at times and pink at other times. And the black glitters are pretty much my favorite thing about this one. They are such a fantastic contrast against the base color.
Your Birthday Was Last Year is a sky/pastel blue base with gold and pink glitters. This polish has a good formula. I liked the opacity in 3-4 coats.
Of course, this one is a favorite for me, too. How could I not love it? The base is such a beautiful, soft, and perfect blue. And the pink glitters really make this polish for me. I love that bright contrast against the soft base.
What do y’all think about this collection? I love the whole thing. It really captures the spirit of the movie for me, and I had so many thoughts and images of the movie in my head from these names and the color combinations. What about all of you? Do you have anything from this collection? I would love to hear what you think about them.
