Monster Mixers and Elixirs Review!
Hello again all! I hope everyone had a great long weekend (for those in the US). I had planned to post on Monday, but I realized a little late last night that ‘Sunday’ was actually Monday. Three day weekends always mess with my head! So you may see 2 posts before the day is over!
Today I have a review for you all: Monster Mixers and Elixirs! This is a new franken polish store run by Melissa of Be Someone Cute. They’re offering quite a few beautiful glitters, which can be purchased on their own, and some beautiful pre-made glitter topcoats. You can even buy a few mini bottles filled with polish base and sample sizes of glitters to make your own combos!
I have 3 of their glitter topcoats to show off, as well as my own franken using glitter purchased from the store.
I recieved Stratosphere, King’s Cup, and Lunar Lake glitter topcoats. All 3 are very pretty!
First up, I’ll show off Stratosphere.
Stratosphere is a beautiful holo blue glitter. I layered this color over 2 coats of Orly Preamp. This glitter applied wonderfully, though I did have to dab a tiny bit to get it everywhere I wanted.
I have 1 coat of Stratosphere on my pinky and ring fingers, 2 coats on my middle finger, and 3 coats on my index finger.
Next up: King’s Cup!
King’s Cup is a beautiful, finer grade gold holo glitter topcoat. I layered this over 2 coats of Maybelline’s Downtown Brown. Application with this one was wonderful- smooth and pretty full coverage.
Like the first shot, I have 1 coat on my pinky and ring finger, 2 coats on my middle finger, and 3 coats on my index finger. This is a finer grade glitter than Stratosphere and Lunar Lake, so the coverage is a bit fuller- it’s not as easy to distinguish between the different numbers of coats!
Last but not least, we have Lunar Lake.
Lunar Lake is a beautiful green holo glitter that is actually a bit more teal than my photos are showing. I layered this one over 2 coats of Wet N’ Wild’s Fergalicious- I love green and pink combos!
Like the other 2 colors, this one is 1 coat on my pinky and ring fingers, 2 coats on the middle finger, and 3 on the index finger. The glitter went on smoothly and nicely, and built up well. It was a nice little pop of color contrast!
Now I’ll show off one of my personal frankens I made the other night using glitter from Monster Mixers & Elixirs. I purchased a few different sample sizes of glitter to play with- for this, I decided to add the entire sample of Nebula to a bottle of base (I used a full size, which is why the glitter is a little less dense than the above topcoats- the sample sizes are perfect for mini size glitter topcoats on their own). I also added some of my new black stars and green moons that I recently bought from Glitter Unique. Named by and created for my friend Jen of Jen’s Nail Files, this one is called Vat of Bats.
Nebula is a beautiful fine holo black glitter! This was 2 coats of Vat of Bats over 2 coats of Essence Grey-T To Be Here (which Jen actually gave me for my birthday- we like to swap gifts!). All I did was add the packet of glitter into my base- which I already own, but you can purchase in bottles from Monster Mixers & Elixirs. A scoop of the moons and stars were the only other things added.
If you’re new to polish making, just want a glitter topcoat, or are an experienced creator looking for a few new glitters, be sure to check out Monster Mixers & Elixirs! You can also find Melissa at her Facebook page Be Someone Cute!
