Glitter Gal - Soft Blue

Good morning!

Today I have one of the new Glitter Gal Transitions colours to show you! Many of you know Glitter Gal from their great holo shades, but they also offer an array of other finishes as well.

The polish I'm showing you today, Soft Blue, is from the new line of Transitions colours. In the bottle it looks like a milky, pearly white shade with just a hint of blue. However, it looks entirely different when layered.


This is one coat of Soft Blue over a black creme. As you can see, it morphs into a bright, almost metallic blue colour! It's a tad streaky, but not too bad.


I had no issues with formula or application - Soft Blue applied quite easily and consistently. Oh and don't mind the imperfection on my middle nail - that was my bad. I smudged the black polish underneath, so that affected the end result.


I didn't bother showing you this on its own, but if that's something you'd like to see, let me know and I'll edit this post with a swatch of Soft Blue on its own. I did apply it to one nail on my right hand just to see what it looked like and frankly, it looks exactly like you would expect it to based on bottle shots - milky, pearly, on the sheer side, and with a slight flash of blue.


I would like to mention that I really like Glitter Gal's new 15ml bottle design! It's quite classy looking and the shape means that it stores really nicely, which is strangely very important to me.

Soft Blue, along with the rest of the Glitter Gal range can be bought through Ninja Polish. The Transitions line retails for $17.95 per bottle.

  2. What a neat concept! Love the end result but not the price tag! Great job, as always :)

    1. I agree, the price tag is a little too steep for my taste. As much as I love the new bottle design, I think I would still prefer the smaller Glitter Gal bottles with their more affordable price tag.

  4. I like these transitions, my wallet, on the other hand, does not.

    I agree on bottle shape and storage! That's why I like Zoya and Essie so much! Revlon, CG, and OPI just don't neatly line up properly.

    ...another symptom of my OCD? Probably.

  5. I love this, I imagine with the blue hue, it would look stunning over a deep purple. I'll have to get my hands on one of these!

  8. Wow! That's so pretty! I can't believe that you put that on top of black! Before I read that, I thought you put it on top of a dark blue!

  9. I am intrigued by the 2 new lines out from Gitter Gal - I need to order but am on a very frugal budget now until I am past an upcoming major surgery and know the bottom line I have to pay for my share. I love topper and color change shades - this one is really amazing that it takes a black cream to this level of color change.

    1. Forgot to add - you are not alone in the bottle shape being uber important...I am one of those that really matters. I hate when bottle shapes rob too much space in my storage system or they are so small they sink away and are lost.

  10. It looks very close to China Glaze Tease
