Daphine Polish:Angels & Demons Collection/Fall 2014

Hello and Welcome!!


Today I have an amazing collection to share with you. This collection of lacquers is called Angels $ Demons by Daphine Polish. This collection consists of 4 holos and 4 glitter polishes.This collection will be available for purchase Friday,10/24.These polishes are duo holo and glitter polishes that represent some of Joanne's favorite angels and demons from television and movies.These polishes can be worn as a set or alone.
Let's take a look below!



Illyria & Angel

Angel


Description:
Angel is described as  gunmetal grey holographic polish.
Inspiration
From Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, Angel is a demon but his name is Angel and he IS a good guy so...he goes in the Angel category. Cursed by gypsies, Angel is the only vampire with a soul (at least for a while *wink*) . He spends years tormenting himself and trying to make amends for the the decades he spent killing and torturing humans without remorse. He is often seen hiding in the shadows in black leather coats, making this gunmetal grey holographic polish a perfect companion to his brooding.
Application:
I applied 2 light coats followed by a top coat.
Opinion:
This is my favorite shade of grey,I'm not sure if it fits all skin types but I love how it looks on me.It applied smoothly but I did notice that it took a bit to dry,even with a fast drying top coat.Other than that it was amazing.


Illyria


Description:
Illyria is described as a blue glitter polish packed with many shades of blue glitters in various sizes with added shimmer.
Inspiration:
From the TV show Angel, Illyria is an Old One, one of the most feared ancient demons. Accidentally resurrected by Fred, Illyria inhabits Fred’s body and plans to raise an army she placed in an alternate time plane in order to take over the earth, only to find them all destroyed. Having blue tinted hair and skin, this all blue glitter polish is my homage to Illyria.
Application:
I applied I coat of Illyria over 2 coats of Angel followed by a fast drying top coat.
Opinion:
This glitter is a perfect combo over Angel.It applied perfectly with just one coat.I didn't have any issues with how the glitter laid onto my nails.

Castiel & Crowley

Crowley


Description:
Crowley is described as a  dark blue holographic polish.
Inspiration:
From  the TV show Supernatural, though a demon at heart, Crowley is a businessman through and through. He exists to itemise contracts and to make the Winchester’s lives all that much more difficult. Always impeccably dressed in a suit, this dark blue holographic polish invokes a sharp navy pinstripe that I imagine Crowley would wear.
Application:
I applied 2 easy coat followed by a quick dry top coat.
Opinion:
This is my favorite shade in this collection. I know that they all seem similar but this one has micro blue glitter mixed in.The formula is very smooth with the perfect consistency.I love it!

Castiel:


Description:
Castiel is described as a taupe and black glitter topper has a hint of blood red sparkle.
Inspiration:
From  the TV show Supernatural, the angel Castiel is rarely seen without his signature khaki trench coat. Often spattered in the blood of his enemies, Cas easily maintains the adage that guys in trench coats are bad asses. This taupe and black glitter topper has a hint of blood red sparkle, just like Castiel’s trench coat.
Application:
I applied 1 coat of Castiel over 2 coats of Crowley followed by a top coat.
Opinion:
I love this glitter topper but I would of liked to see it over a lighter color.Don't get me wrong it's beautiful as is but I feel the glitter is a bit hidden,or looks that way.Other than that the glitter alone is perfection,I wouldn't change a thing about it.

The Beast & Weeping Angel

The Beast


Description: 
The Beast is described as a deep blood red holographic polish with gold sparks.
Inspiration:
From the Doctor Who season 2 episodes “The Impossible Planet” and “The Satan Pit”, The Beast is a demon imprisoned in a pit deep inside the planet Krop Tor. Defeated and chained by the Disciples of Light, the Beast has the ability to possess both human and hive minds from afar.  He identifies himself to the Doctor as Satan and claims to have existed before the universe itself. Represented by a deep blood red holographic polish with gold sparks, it is dark and sinister just like the Beast himself.
Application:
I applied 2 easy coats followed by a fast drying top coat.
Opinion:
This is a stunning red.I really love how the gold sparks just pop in regular lighting.This polish does have a natural glossy finish,no top coat is needed.

Weeping Angel


Description: 
Weeping Angel is described as grey and black glitter topper with silver shreds,light and dark grey hexes and squares and silver shimmer.
Inspiration:
Oops I’m not  following my rules again, because the Weeping Angels are only Angels on the outside. Any Whovian worth their salt is terrified of Weeping Angels (at least the “Blink” Weeping Angels...we’re not going to get into the later ones). Resembling life-sizes stone angel statues, Weeping Angels can only move when unobserved by other beings but they can do so silently and very quickly. This grey and black glitter topper only looks like it is made of stone, just like a Weeping Angel.
Application:
I applied 1 coat of Weeping Angel over 2 coats of The Beast followed by a quick dry top coat.
Opinion:
This glitter topper looks amazing over The Beast,it really pops!I didn't have any issues with the formula or application.It applied perfectly and all the glitters laid flat.

Azrael & Metatron

Metatron


Description:
Metatron is described as a dark green holographic polish with gold shimmer.
Inspiration:
An archangel and the voice of god, in the movie Dogma Metatron is sarcastic and world-weary. Appearing to Bethany in a hoodie and sport coat, he proceeds to send her on her journey to stop two fallen angels from returning to heaven. He is represented by a dark green holographic polish with gold shimmer.
Application:
I applied 1 easy coat followed by a quick drying top coat.
Opinion:
This is a very stunning shade of deep green.It seems to have a bit of a grey hue to it or maybe charcoal hue.It has a very beautiful sparkle that's pleasant to look at.This shade is another one of my favorites in this collection.

Azrael


Description:
Azrael is described as a iridescent and white glitter topper with red crystal glitter and a red shimmer,white dots,squares and hexes.
Inspiration:
From the movie Dogma, Azrael is a demon on Earth who is doing all he can to prevent being sent back to Hell. He will do anything to see that his hidden agenda succeeds, and he doesn't mind getting a little bloody to do so, sending the Stygian triplets to do the dirty work so nothing ruins his pristine white suit. This iridescent and white glitter topper has red crystal glitter and a red shimmer, reminding Azrael that even though his suit may not be dirty, there is blood on his hands.
Application:
I applied 1 coat of Azrael over 1 coat of Metatron followed by a fast drying top coat.
Opinion:
This glitter topper is so beautiful.It has an amazing sparkle to it.This topper would be perfect to wear during the holidays.It applied smooth with no glitter issues.

This is an amazing collection and the colors are fantastic!They will be released tomorrow Friday,October 24th.For more information on this collection be sure to check out all of Daphine Polish's social media sites. The links are posted for you below.
