Tornado Alley by Glitterfied Nails

Today brings us to the last of the trio of polishes I received from Andrea of Glitterfied Nails, and- of course- it's my favorite! I really like to save the best for last :) 

Is it any surprise this is my fave? I LOVE grey polishes, and cremes with fun glitter mixes, so this is an obvious winner! Meet Tornado Alley by Glitterfied Nails. Andrea created this beauty with her hometown high school in mind, and it is modeled after the Dover High Tornados' team colors. It is "shades of super-fine red, red hex, fine jet black and silver holographic floating in a medium gray base." Photos show three coats alone, topped with Out the Door, taken under Ott Lite. 

The grey base of Tornado Alley is very slightly taupe-y leaning, rather than being a true neutral grey. I believe the first photo shows this tendency the best. 

I can't say enough how much I love a good grey creme with glitter. I just can't. And this one delivers: the polish applies smoothly, with no glitter clumping or dragging. The base colors is dense enough to be opaque in three coats, but not so heavy that the glitters get lost:, giving great DEPTH!
