Tux polish Wicked Glitters Trio

Hello my fellow polish addicts, I hope everyone is having a great day. Today I have a very special post for you, I have the Wicked Glitters Trio from Tux polish. About a month ago I was on Instagram and I saw swatch photo's for these gorgeous Halloween glitters. I hadn't actually heard of Tux polish before so after doing some research on shipping costs and emailing the company I decided I had to buy these unique Halloween polishes to add to my ever growing collection.

Tux polish is a American Indie brand that focuses on producing unique polishes its 5 free and I received excellent customer service. I emailed them to ask how much it would be to get the trio shipped to me and within a few minutes I received a reply. They sell every polish you could think of creams, glitters, holo's, crelly's and many more. For their Halloween collection they released 7 brand new polishes. This collection is called the Holo-ween night complete collection, it consists of 3 creams, 3 glitters and 1 holographic. I went with the three glitters as they are so unique, and a girl can never have too many glitters.

All three glitters cost me £14.21 and shipping was £8.07, considering they were coming all the way from America I thought that was quite a good price. If I added it up it was about £7.40 per polish I felt they were worth that. I ordered on the 26th of September and it was with me by 5th of October so it didn't really take long at all. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for their future collections, and I'm already wanting their new fall collection but unfortunately my no buy is in affect until December so they will have to wait.

Let's get into what you are all here for, the polishes. For each manicure I wanted to use my Uber chic Halloween stamping plate, I reviewed this along with some other Uber chic goodies a few posts ago, I'll leave a link here if you wanted to go check that out.
In my package were my 3 polishes wrapped in bubble wrap so no chance of breakage, a Tux polish business card and they kindly gave me a nail file as a sweet little extra. From left to right is Pumpkin Witch Fairy, Holo-ween night and Wicked Witch of the Westside. 
Let's get started with Holo-ween night this a beautiful glitter topper with a clear base and orange, black and white glitters in hex's, bars and shreds it also has holo micro glitters. This is a beautiful glitter topper and screams Halloween. For this topper I wanted my accent finger to scream Halloween too, so I chose to use the Uber chic pumpkin face for my accent nail.

The base colours I used to go with this beauty were Cassella's limitless which I got in my September Meebox, if you wanted to check out the other goodies that I received in my sailor box I'll leave a link to that post here. For my pumpkin accent nail I used Sally Hansen's Inst-dri's pumpkin queen which I picked up in my latest Fragrance direct haul, I'll leave a link here if you wanted to see what else I picked up on my latest bargain hunt. 
I was happy with how this one turned out, it screamed Halloween and I think my little pumpkin is so adorable. I had no problems picking up the image and I used my Moyou London stamper to apply it to my nail. 
Next up is Wicked Witch of the Westside this is another gorgeous glitter topper that is in a clear base and has the same shaped glitters as Holo-ween night but in green, white and black. When I first saw this my immediate thought was Frankenstein's monster. So for my accent nail I went back to my Uber chic Halloween stamping plate and used the Frankenstein image for my accent nail.

As my base colour I used OPI's lost my bikini in molokini as I thought this would really make those glitters pop. Looking back I kind of wish I had just stuck with a white base as they didn't show up as much as I wanted them to. The accent nail base colour is Nailsinc London Queen Victoria street, I received this beauty in my September Creepy colours Nailbox. I'll leave a link here if you wanted to go check out what other spooktacular polishes I received. 
I felt like Frankenstein would look better with a matte topcoat, I do like the final product but a white base may have been a better choice to make those glitters really pop. Never the less I had no problem with application from either of these glitters, there was no fishing and they weren't base heavy. 
The last glitter in the trio is a crelly, I'm in love with crelly's right now. I love the look you can get from them and Pumpkin Witch Fairy is fabulous and perfect for Halloween. This has every Halloween colour all mixed into a white base, the glitters are in lots of different shapes and every time I look at the bottle I see something new this baby was opaque in 3 coats. To go with the crelly I wanted to try and incorporate all the different glitter colours. 

For my accent nail I used my trusty Cassella Limitless as the base, once that had completely dried I turned to my Uber chic Halloween plate one last time and picked out the trick or treat image. I used OPI's left my bikini in molokini, Nailsinc London Queen Victoria street and pumpkin queen to create a stamped gradient. All of these polishes stamp really well and I had no problems with picking up the image. 
I'm very happy with how this turned out I love this crelly and my accent nail, it is a bit off center which bugged me a bit but the over all effect was what I was going for. I love all of these glitters and can see them being used every Halloween or whenever I want to give my nails a bit of that something extra. I'll leave a link here for you to go check these polishes out for yourself and have a look at all the other beauties that Tux polish stock.

So there they are, I am so glad I have these awesome glitter mixes in my collection and so happy I found this great indie brand. I hope you have enjoyed this post and would love to know your thoughts on these polishes. What do you think of my three different accent nails, do you think I should have used the white base for Wicked Witch of the Westside? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below, I love to hear from other addicts. 

As always I hope you are having a great nail day and I will see you all in the next post. Take care.

  1. Love all three of these & their names! You're definitely making me want a white crelly glitter mix, and I've never wanted one lol! I really like the purple base for the green glitter, contrasts well with the green x
