Glitter Or Die: The Sky Collection and Discworld Duo - Swatches & Review

Hey guys! Happy Wednesday! So I went to this year's International Salon and Spa Expo in Long Beach! It was totally last minute. An awesome gel polish brand (that I'll be swatching soon) invited me to go and of course I had to! I was really nervous cause I'm really shy and I was gonna go by myself and I didn't know anyone but boy, am I glad I went! I bought so many new collections, let's just say there's a lot of exciting things to come. I'll probably have a separate post of all the new collections from 2015. Anyways, today I have an awesome brand called Glitter Or Die (that's totally my motto right now lol). Check out all the details below!

this is the first time that I'm working with this brand and I was really excited to be asked to swatch their gorgeous new collection and duo. Both, the Discworld duo and the Sky Collection which be releasing January 30th, purchase it here. The Sky Collection consists of 6  polishes ranging from multichromes to glitter toppers to thermals. But first, let's look at the Discworld Duo.

The Discworld Duo is by White Elephant which is an ongoing collaboration between Glitter or Die and Kiwi Liz (@wenchness). The duo's name is Inspired by Terry Pratchett novels. Both polishes is their interpretation of Pratchett's explanations in the books.

The Light Fantastic is a fleck and flaky filled orange jelly. I used 3 coats for the pictures below. Orange is not my go to color, but this is so pretty! It's not too bright but not too dark either. The flakies are so pretty! It looks like it'll be a bit sheer but it built up nicely.

The Color Of Magic is a holo chromatic purple polish with chromatic glitter as well. I used 3 coats for the pictures below. This one is definitely my favorite! I couldn't capture how gorgeous this really is so trust me, just get it! The formula and application went on super smoothly.

The Sky Collection is the first part in a series of Gaia based collection.

Asamana (Hindi) is an orange holo polish. I used 3 coats. Asamana is capturing the intense sunsets found in high heat locations. I don't have many orange holo polishes so I'm so happy to be adding this one. The formula and application was great!

Got ( Azerbaijani) is a beautiful multichrome polish that shifts from red to green to brown. I used 3 coats. Got shows the strange sunsets found in the high mountain regions. You can never go wrong with an ultrachrome, this is just gorgeous. The first two coats are pretty sheer but it builds up fast and you should be able to get full coverage with three coats.

Speir (Irish) is a dark grey/brown creme. It's a one coater! Plus I didn't even use a top coat for the picture below, that's how awesome the formula is. Speir is capturing the red gray of angry swollen clouds prior to rain storms.

Mbinju (Swahili) is a shimmery thermal that goes from purple when cold to pink when hot. I used 3 coats for the pictures below. Mbinju is the incredible pink sky's found in desert areas. This thermal is so pretty, so girly! It's perfect. The shimmer in it really adds a nice touch. The formula and application was great. Take a look at it in action here.

Newadi (Navajo) is a beautiful thermal with gold flakies and flecks that's white when hot and blue when cold. I used 3 coats for the pictures below. Newadi is the beautiful blue during a day of snow. Omg, I think this is my favorite from the collection! The colors that it transitions to are so pretty, especially with the golden flakies. The formula and application was great.

Ceu (Portuguese) is a colorful glitter bomb. I wore 1 coat over Mbinju. Cue is the human celebration when we shower confetti in the sky. You can never go wrong with a colorful glitter topper, they always go with everything.

I'm really impressed by this brand! The formula is amazing, and all of these are so pretty! The Sky Collection and the Discworld Duo will both be released January 30th! Purchase these by clicking here. Make sure to follow Glitter Or Die on Instagram!
