WingDust Collection - Steel Town Girl Swatch & Review

How was your holiday, if you celebrate Easter? Otherwise, how was your Sunday?

I drank a bunch of wine at my boyfriend's grandma's house with his mom's side of the family for brunch. Not only wine for brunch -- Andy's grandma happens to be one heck of a chef. Then we went to my dad and stepmom's house for more delicious food, and then we came home and unsuccessfully tried harvesting Blaze Rods in the effing Nether. I swear that's not innuendo.

I've heard nothing but great things about WingDust Collections, and I've had on my eye on Steel Town Girl for quite a while now so when I saw it restocked at Llarowe I had to get it. Duh.

Steel Town Girl combines pretty much everything I love in a nail polish: the color blue, holographic whatnot, gold leaf, and THE WOW FACTOR. No but seriously, this polish is like the big bang happened inside of my hands and little flat strips of the result are squeezing out through the tips of my fingers.

Like little galaxies, y'all.

Steel Town Girl is a linear holographic deep steel blue base filled with metallic light blue, iridescent and holographic shards and 23k gold leaf flakes. The description sounds kind of over-compensatingly complicated but the actual product is baaaaaaaaaallin'. Plus the formula was super easy to work with, and even though WingDust disclaims that the flakes and shreds might be a little stubborn, I had no problems getting a nice amount on my nails.

Shown below is three coats with topcoat.

There's a lot of depth to this polish that usually takes multiple polishes to achieve. I also had zero issues with the shards or flakes trying to do sticky-up stuff anywhere, so that was a nice added bonus. I hate when shards are all pointy and think they can just do whatever they want.


  1. Holy cannoli, that is *beautiful*.

    1. I added it to my ISO list the second I saw a swatch of it the first time. So good.

    1. I need more WingDust in my life if they're anything like this! There's another similar to this except the base is this soft lilac color and it's white gold flake. Dreamy!

  3. Wow. That's really pretty amazing. And amazingly pretty!

  4. Dang, buddy, this is insane! So gorgeous!
