Alter Ego She’s A Brick House Swatches (Fan Faves Collection)

Alter Ego - She's A Brick House Bottle

Another polish from Alter Ego’s Fan Faves collection.  This is She’s A Brick House.  A dark berry almost burgundy red with a  gold shift in some lighting.   It appeared quite vampy in the bottle but is a bit brighter on the nail.  It is almost a one coater but I needed a second to get full opacity and cover a bare spot.  You might get away with one thicker coat though.

Shown here with one coat, you can see some patchiness and a little nail line.  So while opaque in the bottle, a second coat is needed for full coverage.  If you use thicker coats of polish, you might get away with one coat.

Shown in full sunlight, you see the glow from the glitter in the polish and a touch of the golden shift in She’s A Brick House.

I snapped this later in the evening and you can see a bit more of the gold in the evening sun.

I am not always the biggest fan of matte top coats over polishes with glitter or flakies but this collection mattifies really well.  I loved this matte.

This one stamps well over light and dark polishes.  The metallic formula means it shows well over black and you get a more pink colour when stamped over white.
