Alter Ego Hold Onto Your Butts Swatches (Velocirapture Collection)

The Velocirapture collection from Alter Ego continues to excel with the beautiful blue Hold Onto Your Butts.  Similar in tone to darker denim, this has a blue colorant with a chrome base.  The silvery tone of the base makes it glow and gives it great opacity. Hold Onto Your Butts by Alter Ego was inspired by this scene in Jurassic Park.  Cynthia captured the moment and blue perfectly in this Velocirapture polish.

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

Alter Ego Fan Faves - Shes A Brick House

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.

Alter Ego Silver Lining Swatches (Fan Faves Collection)

Alter Ego Fan Faves - Silver Lining

Another polish from the Alter Ego Fan Faves Collection!  Silver Lining has a cool silver base with gunmetal micro-glitter.  As soon as I put matte top coat on this one, it became my favourite of the collection.  Another great thing about Alter Ego Silver Lining is that you can get away with one generous coat of polish but my swatches are shown with two.
