GA-DE CRYSTALLIC Matte Collection


The cosmetic brand GA-DE came out recently with a new collection called Crystallic Matte Nail Color.
The formula of the nail polishes in this collection contains micro particles which creates a 3D effect with a unique texture that reminds sugar. 

We already saw similar collections with this sugar/sand texture, like Sally Hansen Sugar Coat, OPI Mariah with the Liquid Sand finish, China Glaze Texture collection and more, so when I received the polishes from this collection I was very curious to see GA-DE's interpretation to this trend.

The Crystallic collection contains 6 different shades and I have 3 of them to show, so let's start:

L to R:

Coral Sugar
Gold Sugar
Blue Sugar

Coral Sugar – a coral pink with beautiful gold glitters. This shade of pink is tricky and although it seems "innocence" in the bottle, it came out pretty "bold" on my nails (yes, of course I liked it J). I wish the gold glitters were more visible in regular lighting, but still, it's a beautiful shade of pink.

 GA-DE - Coral Sugar

Gold Sugar – Well, this one has the Wow factor for me. You all know I'm not a big fan of gold but I definitely going to use this one again and not just for swatches. Gold Sugar is gold with tons of silver chunks and it's the only one out of the bunch with big chunks of glitters. I think surprisingly it was my favorite out of the three, maybe because it's really special…

Blue Sugar – The names in this collection are a big shock, ha? Well…..Blue Sugar is a medium blue with tiny silver glitters. It's a beautiful shade of blue and you can see it sparkles on your nails very nicely. I wish it had also some gold or pink glitters inside, I think it could be more special this way, but I also like it as it is.

 GA-DE - Blue Sugar

As for the formula of this collection, it's very pigmented and on the thick side so it works great and now you'll hear me saying something I've NEVER EVER said on this blog before – as far as Coral Sugar and Gold Sugar – DO NOT apply more than one coat. Yes. You heard me right – the three of them are opaque at one coat so you don't need the second one, but while Blue Sugar is also good in two coats, the other two looks their best in one coat. When I applied the second coat it looked bumpier and the sugar texture was ruined a little, so yes, I recommend you don't apply more than one coat.
Overall, I think GA-DE pretty much nailed it in this collection - texture, glitters, one coat - can we ask for more? Maybe just for some more colors....

And – for those of you who read my Facebook Page, you probably saw me talking a lot about some new packages I received lately (one I already showed you in the last post), and one of my favorite things lately, is amazing glitters stickers which arrived in one of the packages, so I made a quick mani to show you – what do you think?

Well, that's it for today, I hope you enjoyed it and Happy Black Friday to you all J Are you planning any special purchases?

The products in this post were sent to me for a review by the pr company *

אהבתי את הכסוף/ זהב (בתמונה הוא נראה כסוף אבל השם שלו מרמז שהוא בעצם זהב?..)
הוא נראה מקסים אבל יש לי בעיה עם הטקסטורה שלהם.. המגע שלהם פשוט לא נעים לי.. במיוחד כשמעבירים יד בשיער:) זו בעיה שהיא רק אצלי??

Tuli said...

labellavidablog - כן, הוא זהב אבל עם המון נצנצים כסופים אז מתקבל מראה של זהב-כסוף, גם אני אהבתי אותו מאוד:-)

ולגבי התחושה, אני יכולה להבין אותך למרות שאישית זה לא מפריע לי. מה שכן, ניסית אותם עם טופ קואוט מעל? כי זה מחליק קצת את המרקם למגע אבל עדיין שומר על המראה המחוספס.
