Review: Ellagee Mean Girls Collection polishes

I was provided with these samples in exchange for an honest review.

I'm so excited because today I get to share with you two polishes from Ellagee's new Mean Girls collection! I'm not familiar with Mean Girls whatsoever but that's OK, I can appreciate the polishes :)

This is how my samples were packaged, and Laura threw in one of her magnets. Thanks for the extra! I received two pretties to review:

When I first opened this package, my first thoughts turned to Above The Curve's Guardian Angel, upon seeing I'm a Mouse, DUH! No, this color does NOT look anything at all like Guardian Angel, woohoo! It is a very subtle lavender grey scattered holo with a subtle linear holo. The color itself is quite unique, I have to say. It's rather quite lovely and I am very happy with it.

Now honestly, as I was taking these shots I was getting kind of frustrated because I couldn't see the holo effect that much. Then I came inside and looked at the pictures and OH! There it is! :)

I'm a Mouse, DUH! was just a tiny bit difficult to work with. It almost has a bit of a frost finish so getting a perfect coat was just the tiniest bit tricky but no big deal. It looks lovely with just one coat but I did use 2. Here's one last look at I'm a Mouse, DUH! this time with the flash on.

I did a second manicure using You Can't Sit With Us as a topper but unfortunately I didn't notice until now, I had massive amounts of cat fur all over my fingers in almost all of the pictures. Thank you, Winslow. >-<

For this manicure I started with a base of Kleancolor Black. Then I sponged on Black, jane Warpaint (a vintage polish) and Sation Queenie in a Bottle. Lastly of course I topped the whole works with You Can't Sit With Us. I really like this glitter but it is a little bit difficult to remove, and it also seemed to take quite awhile to dry.

So fortunately I have one more manicure to share with you! I did some nail art with the first manicure :) I started by using You Can't Sit With Us on every other nail. Then in between those I did some paisley inspired designs. Originally I was going to do leopard spots but then I thought it looked more like paisley so I went with it. I used Queenie in a Bottle, and Kleancolor Neon Aqua.

I thought this might be a bit too much craziness on my nails, but nope it wasn't. I had to stop myself from adding more to it.

Here's a close up of this combo:

I think these two polishes go lovely together, how about you?

You can purchase these and Ellagee's many other beautiful polishes on their Web site here. I'm a Mouse, DUH! is $10.75, and You Can't Sit With Us is $9.50 for a 15 mL bottle. Thanks again to Laura for providing me with these samples :)
