Angel Rain shifts from blue to pale green to lavender to pink. This is one of the most interesting polishes I've seen lately. I think it's a perfect fairy tale in a bottle...the kind of fairy tale where you don't want glitter and sparkle...just that glowing nimbus quality.
Angel Rain is a bit frosty, but fortunately, it doesn't leave all those pesky brushstrokes with the flashing red signs reading "Totally Tubular!!"
Angel Rain is very sheer. I used 3 thin coats for the photos, and I still had visible nail line, although you probably won't...unless you're like me and your nails are 84% calcium or something. :P You can layer it over a color, but I prefer it on its own. Be sure to let each coat dry thoroughly to avoid those dreadful little frost bubbles. :/
I had a rather difficult time getting Angel Rain to play nice and show the camera all its beautiful colors. So much for an angelic personality...

|Ahhhh...shift to green: SUCCESS!|
Angel Rain is one of those polishes that you have to see for yourself to truly appreciate. My paltry photography skills simply can't do the amazing multichromosity justice. :)
What do you think of Angel Rain? Does the lovely color/colors outweigh the frostiness for you? I will say that I was sitting next to my sister this morning in church under halogen lighting, and she saw this polish on my nails and thought it was pretty special. <3
Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day! :)
Light, frosty, and duochromatic is a total win in my book ♥ I almost picked up a bottle of this yesterday, too. I adore your description of "fairy tale in a bottle" because it does have that otherworldly, ethereal quality to it.ReplyDelete
It really does look a bit like Electric Cinderella! :P I tried to do a post on this before, but I got my coats too thick, and the stuff just would NOT dry. The second time was the charm. I actually forgot about your liking frosts, so you would definitely like this one. <3Delete
This really is a pretty polish - love the duochrome!ReplyDelete
The color shift is so lovely, isn't it? I feel pictures just do not do the polish justice... :/Delete
A glowing fairytail nimbus - what a perfect description!!! It looks so etheral and delicate on you, just beautiful!!! Those shade shifters are my preferred finishes in winter - now did I just got seasonal???? As for consistency: I believe certain polishes need to be transluscent to let their magic work. As for photographing: putting your hand in water will do the trick and bring forward all the colors - I didn't believe it but was astonished when I tried :-) Have a lovely start of the week <3ReplyDelete
Awww thanks. ;) I thought about trying your water trick...then I ran outside to see if standing in a sunbeam might do the trick. Oh well, you all got to see a bit of my driveway huh? :)Delete
Eh, not really my cup of tea. But of course, you make it look beautiful! I still think I might need Sparkling Garbage....but is it hard to find?? I've never seen it in person.ReplyDelete
Why thank you. :) As for Sparkling Garbage, I found mine at Ulta on a Mash-Up display...there were only 2 of them. In my opinion, it's a very special polish. I even found one at TJ Maxx (I think it was a mistake!) in a 2-pack for $6.99. I gave that one to my sister. It's really amazing how it transforms a color.Delete
Ooooh, I will keep my eyes peeled :)Delete
Oooh I've totally have my eye on this one ever since I saw bottle shots of it. It looks so pearl and smooth and blue, all things that I love! Your swatches are so pretty, and it looks really wonderful on you! :DReplyDelete
Thank you!! <3 I'm guessing it's one of those polishes you either love or hate...but it does have an elegance about it...kind of like a 1950's ballgown, if you know what I mean. :)Delete
Hmm, I'm not sure I'm in love with the pale blue color but I do like the pearly look! I love the last photo :)ReplyDelete
Aww, thank you! It is a pretty polish, but I agree, it's not for everybody.Delete
