Swatches & review: Glitter Gal She's Cactus & Galaxy Holo Top Coat

Hi ladies! Australian nail polish brand Glitter Gal recently launched two new collections with an Australian theme. I have She's cactus from the Celebrate - Sydney Style collection to share with you today. The name She's cactus is actually Australian slang for 'something dead or broken'.

The green shade is bright and almost leans on neon. It's definitely not something I normally would pick up, but I'm glad to have it in my stash now :) This was two coats and sealed with Glitter Gal Gloss Boss, which is super shiny and super quick drying.

I decided to layer over a coat of Galaxy holo top coat to add some rainbow sparkles. I have to say that I was a little disappointed with the holographic effect - it's definitely not as in your face as I would have liked! It's more subtle and definitely adds interest to an otherwise 'plain' manicure. I might add a second coat next time and see if that makes a difference.

Glitter Gal crème nail polishes retail for $9.95 for 10ml. The Galaxy holo top coat is $11.95 for a 10ml bottle.

Do you own any Glitter Gal nail polishes? Which one is your favourite?

Thanks for reading!

  1. Wow, that's an awesome turquoise! The topcoat is not enough bling for my taste ;)

  2. Aaah this is so pretty! I need a bright turquoise shade like this in my collection.

  3. Haha yeah, the top coat could have been more holographic. Still, I'm not complaining - I've always wanted a holographic top coat :D

  4. It definitely is quite bright! Glad you like it Laura :)

  5. Thanks so much for your swatches - we especially love Galaxy top coat over She's Cactus-Kerry & Anna, Glitter Gal Australia xxxx
