Hey everyone! We’re going way back to 2012 with this brand! I think they opened and closed all in that year. Do any of you own this brand?
This was one of the first indie brands I bought way back in 2012. I only own these two. When I received them in the mail, Envious already had all the glitter sunk to the bottom. I contacted them and was sent a replacement but it came the exact same way. So I wasn’t thrilled with the execution of the polish formula so I never bought another one.
- Alta Costura Envious is a spring green jelly with white, yellow and blue glitter in a couple of sizes. I put this on yesterday and woke up with a chip on my index finger.
The glitter sinks but it does mix back up with a good shake so it is useable. I love the idea of this polish but I haven’t reached for it in 7+ years, it’s time to go to the purge box.
I used 3 coats plus topcoat (I only used 1 coat of topcoat but it really needs 2 to be perfectly smooth) for the swatch today.
- Alta Costura Sweet Tooth is a clear base with pink, blue, white and red glitter in a couple of sizes. This one also has the sinky glitter but it does shake up so it is useable.
I used 2 coats alone on my ring and 1 coat over a pale yellow (OPI Meet A Boy Cute As Can Be) on my pinky. Again, I used just 1 coat of topcoat but it needs 2 to be perfectly smooth. I like this one alot but I will probably never reach for it again so off to purgatory it goes!
Here are the bottles showing the sinking glitter, with flash…

Well, there we have it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
