Born To Be Brave by Ellagee in collaboration with PolishedPrince_80

1:50 AM

Hi lovelies! If you're a Lady Gaga fan then this post is going to be right up your alley! Even if you're not a fan I bet there's something that catches your eye in this post anyway. It's hard not too because these shades are so good! This Gaga inspired collab collection is coming to you from Ellagee & a very handsome member of the nail community Karl (IG: PolishedPrince_80).
These two made one hell of a polish making duo! Once I heard these two were teaming up, I couldn't wait to see the finished collection. Let me tell you.. they definitely didn't disappoint.

Onto the polish! 

Million Reasons

Silvery blue base with a pink/blue/lilac flash, silver holo microglitter and linear holo shimmer. 2 coats + top coat. 

The Countess

A shimmering rich magenta base with shifting blue to lilac flash and silver holo glitter. 2 coats + top coat. 

I Am My Hair

A bright aqua blue base with gold flakies and linear holo shimmer. 2 coats + top coat. 

Mother Monster

An ethereal pale lilac crelly with aqua and lavender to pink shifting shimmer. My swatch shows 3 thin coats + top coat, but could be opaque in two with a heavier bead of polish. 

Velvet Ropes And Guitars

A vampy deep red jelly with shades of red microglitter plus translucent hot pink microflakies and red shimmer. 2 coats + top coat. 

Beautiful Dirty Rich

 A sexy black jelly packed with bright gold and coppery red shimmer and flakies. My swatch shows 2 coats + top coat. 

Monster Ball

A clear based topper with a disco ball mix of metallic and holo glitter in the shades silver, pink, lilac, and a bright yellow gold plus a dash of silver holo stars. My swatch shows one coat over Zoya Luella Hancock + top coat.

Collabs between makers and members of the nail community are always so fun, especially when the finished collection comes out so awesome!
