Hi everyone! I’m working my way through the A’s on my spreadsheet. I just counted and I have 16 brands that start with A (including those I’ve already done). I’m up to Alter Ego.
I own 5 polishes from Alter Ego. Two were purchased just last year and the other three I received in either a grab bag or a VIP bag from The Indie Shops from 2018. I’ll show you two of them on my nails, but I’ll start with the other three.
You can find this brand at Wisconsinsoap.com. I am not affiliated.
From the local Indie Shops from 2018 I have two mini’s a full size:
I LOVE Well Read. It’s a coral holo with a touch of pink. Spring Rain is a turquoise shimmer and Forever In Amber is a butterscotch color. The last two are very nice colors but I can only see using them for jewelry so they will go into my jewelry making purgatory. I’m keeping Well Read and the next two that I will show you now.
5th Century Indian Nut is from March 2020 PPU (Polish Pickup). This is a white base with small brown speckled glitter. It has a good formula for a white base and the glitter all come out easily. I love speckled polishes so this is a keeper for sure. I used 2 coats plus topcoat. (1 coat of topcoat was enough to smooth it).
Crusader is from the November 2020 PGB (Polished Gamers Box). This is a sparkly silver base with black micro glitter. On my ring nail I have 2 coats over 1 coat of 5th Century Indian Nut and on my pinky I have 2 coats alone. It’s not full coverage but it is so sparkly you usually don’t really notice the nail showing through. I used 1 coat of topcoat and they were all perfectly smooth.

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