Ellagee for September's Polish Pickup: Ablaze

Press Sample

Happy Monday, dear readers! I'm not sure where the weekend went, but here we are again! In my previous blog post, I shared a new shade coming next month to the September Polish Pickup. I am excited to report that Ellagee is going to be participating in the Fall Foliage & Fun-themed Polish Pickup with an exquisite red polish that screams fall. Let's get a closer look at Ablaze!


Ablaze is described as a brick red jelly polish packed with gold and copper flakes and shimmers. It was inspired by the brilliant colors that set the trees ablaze in autumn. I am crazy in love with this swoon-worthy shade! There is nothing like a classic rich red shade, but add my beloved jelly squishiness and metallic shimmers and flakes and I am unable to resist such loveliness! The formula of Ablaze is a dream come true. Not too thick or thin, it applies perfectly even with all the added shimmers and flakes. For those that tend to avoid jellies due to sheerness, there is no need to worry with this beauty: I only needed two coats for full opacity to cover my nail line. In addition to two coats of Ablaze, I added a coat of top coat for extra shine and to help smooth the ever-so-slight texture created from all the added goodness.

But I didn't stop there. Oh no, this beauty just BEGGED to have a matte top coat added, and who am I to say no? Check it out below with a matte finish!


As much as I love the squishiness with the shiny top coat, I think I may actually prefer this with a matte finish. The base shade is lovely on its own, but you can really appreciate the flakes and shimmers even more like this! I'm glad to see this beautiful polish join the Polish Pickup lineup!

Ablaze and other shades from the September Fall Foliage & Fun Polish Pickup will be available for purchase from the Polish Pickup website for a limited time: September 1st through September 4th only! That is this weekend, so be sure to be there so you don't miss out! Please note that all purchases through the Polish Pickup are a preorder, and orders will ship in approximately three weeks. All the indie brands participating have really knocked it out of their park with their creations, and they are well worth the short wait!

I'd love to hear your thoughts on Ablaze! Are you a fan of red jellies like I am? Do you prefer it with a shiny or matte top coat? Will you be adding this to your purchase list when the Polish Pickup shop opens on Friday? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
XO!

  13. Wow, I just love the color of these nails. So pretty! I wish I could put polish on mind, but I can't have anything on my nails. It feels too weird to me. Sensory issues.
