GameOver - Carbuncle's Ruby, Meet me at Afterlife and The Magister's Curse

Ooh new indie! Polishes inspired by video games? Heck yes! I am an avid gamer, and this premise excites me muchly! Right now there are only 3 polishes available, with more to come. Let's take a look at the premier trio of polishes offered by GameOver!

The Magister's Curse

Meet me at Afterlife

Carbuncle's Ruby

Carbuncle's Ruby - "A blend of red and turquoise metallic and holographic glitters of varying sizes in a clear base"

The inspiration for this polish comes from Final Fantasy.

Here it is with 2 coats over OPI Fly

The Magister's Curse -"A blend of blue, teal and aqua metallic and holographic glitters in a clear base"

 The inspiration behind this polish is from Dragon Age II, specifically Fenris and his Lyrium markings.

Here is 2 coats of The Magister's Curse over ManGlaze ILF

Meet me at Afterlife - "A blend of magenta, blue and teal metallic and holographic glitter."

This one is inspired by Mass Effect II, the Afterlife Club.

This is 2 coats over Orly Lunar Eclipse. 

Here they are over black with no topcoat because I was lazy. I do plan to reswatch these over several colours, including black WITH topcoat ;)

The Magister's Curse

Carbuncle's Ruby

Meet me at Afterlife

The formula on these is good. The glitter sparse enough that you can do one coat and get a good amount but still have lots of base colour showing, yet dense enough that you could have pretty opaque coverage in 3 coats. Nice and fluid. Not too thick. A+!

You can purchase GameOver polishes from their Etsy shop for $9 dollars/bottle.
