GameOver - Carbuncle's Ruby over OPI Red Lights Ahead... Where?

This is one coat of GameOver Carbuncle's Ruby over OPI Red Lights Ahead... Where? It was hard for the camera to pick up the red glitter in some lights.

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 ;)

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.

Femme Fatale - Shimmering Snowcap over Rescue Beauty Lounge - Moxie

This looks so much better in person. The glints of the iridescent glitter are just so delicate and pretty. It's too bad that Femme Fatale decided to discontinue Shimmering Snowcap. There are lots of white glitter polishes, but this one is my favourite. This is 2 coats over 3 coats of RBL Moxie which is beautiful but streaky and difficult to work with. I should have used some glitter food, but I am out of it and too cheap to pay $10 shipping to buy another bottle. It seems that whenever I actually have enough things I want to purchase to justify the shipping, it is out of stock. One day!
