Ellagee - Born to Be Brave Collection

Hey all!

Today, I have a lovely and diverse collection from Ellagee to share with you all.  This collection of 7 polishes is inspired by the delicious Lady Gaga.  The inspiration behind these polishes come from her many outfits and wigs from memorable performances and red carpet appearances.  Each polish is unique just like Lady Gaga herself.  Let's take a look at these beauties!

Million Reasons - A icy blue base with linear holographic effect, shifty pink shimmer and holographic microglitter.  This is the most holographic shade in the collection.  The blue base is a nice color for spring and summer.  Application was smooth.  I am showing you two coats with a glossy top coat here.

Velvet Ropes and Guitars - A ruby red jelly base with holographic microglitter and bright pink microshimmer.  Such a sexy polish!  Everyone loves a nice sparkly red on their nails.  The formula was good but a little on the thicker side with all of the glitter.  But it still applied nicely in two coats.

The Countess - A bright magenta pink with subtle holographic glitters and shifting pink microflakies.  I am digging this bright girly pink.  The formula was really nice on this polish as well.  I am showing you two coats with a glossy top coat.  

Beautiful Dirty Rich - A black jelly base packed with a combo of gold and copper flakies.  It is a great black polish with something a little extra.  Plus...it looks amazeballz with a matte top coat.  For real!  I am showing you two squishy coats with both glossy and matte top coat here.

Mother Monster - A soft pale white crelly with a hint of purple and an awesome pink and aqua microshimmer.  This polish is so delicate and ethereal.  The formula is a little on the sheer side and you will likely need three coats for full opacity like I did.

I Am My Hair - A bright turquoise/aqua base with a soft linear holo effect and gorgeous golden microflakies.  I love the combo of aqua and gold here.  The flakies make for a nice addition to this holo.  The formula was really nice with only two coats needed for full opacity.

Monster Ball - A clear based topper with tiny holographic bars, tiny holographic stars and a mix of hex glitters in red, gold and pink.  This is actually a fun topper.  I thought I was going to dislike it because of the bar glitters but they all played nicely.  Great glitter coverage!  I am showing you one coat over China Glaze Crimson with a glossy top coat.  I did not have to manipulate glitters at all!

So what do you think of this collection?  I really enjoy the variety here.  May fave would have to be Beautiful Dirty Rich because I just love the way it looks mattified.  Which is your fave?  

The Born to Be Brave Collection will be launching on March 16th at 6pm CST.  There is options to buy the entire collection at a discount or you can purchase the polish individually.
