Metametics Frost Giant

“Inspired by Norse mythology, Frost Giant is a blue-tinted base with a slight pink highlight, filled with icy blue glitter.” The pink shift is more noticeable over dark polishes, but it can still be seen over lighter colored polishes as well. When I first saw the bottle I thought it was going to be a blue jelly with blue glitter, but to my surprise it was a clear base packed with micro glitter! Pictured is two coat over white and black. My ring and pinky fingers are topped with Essie Matte About You, which I think gave it a really cool look! Application was great and I didn’t have any problems with the glitter.

Metametics The Rainbow Guard

This is two coats of The Rainbow Guard over two coats of Kleancolor Neon Aqua. I’m a huge fan of how rainbow glitter looks over a blue base (surprise surprise). The Rainbow Guard has a hex glitter in all shapes and colors, and it also has bar glitter and silver square glitter. I know there are a plethora of rainbow glitter polishes out there but this one is still very pretty nonetheless, and I like the addition of bar and square glitter (which sadly only made it onto the side of my thumb that you can’t see and my right hand). I didn’t have to do any placement with this and two coats gave me just the right amount of glitter without feeling like I was globbing it on. :)

The Rainbow Guard is not currently for sale but it will be in the future. If you have any questions regarding her polish you can find Metametics on FacebookTumblr, and of course Etsy

Metametics High Functioning Sociopath

High Functioning Sociopath was inspired by the BBC Sherlock series. It’s a deep blue jelly with medium sized blue hex glitter. Pictured is two coats, and as you can see this polish gives a great jelly sandwich look! I really love the dark base with lighter colored glitter.

Metametics Lannister Gold

Lannister Gold was inspired by Game of Thrones. It is a honey colored jelly with gold hex and square glitter of varying sizes. One important note that I would like to make is that the bottle I received had large square glitter, but the large square glitter has since been removed due to problems with curling. 

Pictured is two coats over a white base. At first I thought I might be able to make it opaque on it’s own, but that would have probably taken 6+ coats and that just wasn’t happening. This polish is a bit thicker so some underwear is definitely necessary. Despite the thick formula I didn’t run into many problems with application. The glitter was a bit trickier to get evenly dispersed on the nail, but it wasn’t unmanageable.

Metametics Honey, You Should See Me in a Crown

This is two coats, and I was actually surprised at the fact that I only needed two! I thought this was going to be really sheer for whatever reason, but it wasn’t! This polish is inspired by the BBC Sherlock series, which I haven’t seen so no fangirling over this one (we’ll leave that for the next avatar polish!). 

Honey, You Should See Me in a Crown is a red jellyish polish with a red shimmer and square, hex, and diamond shaped gold glitter. The larger glitters aren’t as plentiful as some of her other polishes, but I guess not everything can be a glitterbomb! You still get the jelly sandwich look with this though, which I really love.

Honey, You Should See Me in a Crown can be purchased here in mini ($4) and full ($10) sizes. If you have any questions regarding her polish you can find Metametics on FacebookTumblr, and of course Etsy

Metametics Nitroglycerine

Nitroglycerine was inspired by Fight Club, which is both a super awesome book and movie. It contains micro and small matte pink glitter in a clear base. I really love matte glitter but I don’t see it too often so I was really excited for this polish! The formula wasn’t too think which meant that I could have easily added more coats if I wanted to, but I decided to stick with two. From pinky to index I have Nitroglycerine layered over Wet n Wild French White Creme, China Glaze Go Go Pink, Orly Butterflies, and China Glaze High Hopes. Layered over Butterflies is definitely my favorite!

Nitroglycerine is not currently for sale but you can find other Metametics polishes here. If you have any questions regarding her polish you can find Metametics on FacebookTumblr, and of course Etsy

Metametics Valyrian Steel

Valyrian Steel was inspired by Game of Thrones and it is packed with holographic glitter of all shaped and sizes. Pictured is two coats over Lex Cayman Cabana. Unfortunately I got some bubbling but that was my own fault. 

One thing I love about Valyrian Steel is that it’s a new take on holographic polish. Instead of a colored base with holographic pigment, it’s just a ton of holographic glitter! With this mani I kind of wish I had stuck with one coat, because sometimes I like the look of sparse glitter. The nice thing is that you can start with sparse glitter if that’s what you want, or you can work your way up to a glitterfest! I’d say that two coats is somewhere in between, maybe a glitter party?

Metametics Sunspear

Sunspear was inspired by the TV series Game of Thrones. Pictured is two coats over Essie Orange, It’s Obvious! Sunspear has a clear base and is filled with small red glitter, medium yellow and orange glitter, and red diamond glitter. I really love how this looks over Orange, It’s Obvious! even though it means not being able to see the medium orange glitter as well. 

Application was great, the formula isn’t too thick so it was easy to do multiple coats of polish. The glitter dispersed evenly as well so I didn’t have to do any placement.

Metametics Vine Whip

Vine Whip is a super intense neon green polish with green bar glitter. Pictured is two coats over white. I know I’ve said it before but white is always necessary underneath neons. It just is. Unless you don’t want it to actually look neon. 

But seriously, it looked like my fingers were glowing, this was so bright. It was awesome.

Metametics Uriel

Shown is two coats of Uriel over Finger Paints Beach Bound. Uriel is part of an Archangels mini collection which is currently not for sale because of expensive/hard to find ingredients. Which is really sad because look how pretty! Its a holo and a duochrome that shifts from blue to pink! 

The duochrome is more evident in the shade and the holo really comes out in the sun.

Metametics Not Your Housekeeper

Not Your Housekeeper was inspired by the BBC Sherlock series. It is a clear base filled with all sorts of shapes and sizes of various purples, and there are some flakies in there as well! Pictured is one coat over Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac. 

This polish is a purple party! Which I love because it’s one of my favorite colors. I think that one coat gave me just the right amount of glitter, but its thin enough were you can add more coats without feeling like you’re globbing it on. I didn’t have to go “fishing” for glitter but I had to do a bit of placement just to make sure the bigger shapes didn’t all end up at my tips (see pinky).

Metametics Water Tribe (Part 1)

Surprise! Another glittery blue! But this one is even better because it’s a holo! And I am well aware that the picture gives zero indication of that (unless you look at the bottle), but clouds meant that I couldn’t capture the holo on camera, so hopefully I will have better luck tomorrow so I can put up part two. :)

Despite lighting difficulties I think this polish is gorgeous no matter which way you look at it. I actually had no idea it was a holo when I first saw it and it was still one of my favorites. Pictured is two coats in natural light and it’s just… so pretty! Honestly you could throw any blue polish at me and I would probably think it’s pretty but that’s besides the point. I legitimately cannot stop staring at my nails. 

Water Tribe is not currently in stock but if it were you would be able to find it here and you would have the option of buying a mini ($4) or a full size ($10) bottle. If you have any questions regarding her polish you can find Metametics on Facebook, Tumblr, and of course Etsy.

Metametics Water Tribe (part two)

From this picture you can see that this polish does have holographic particles (or whatever you wish to call them) BUT my camera wont capture how it actually looks in the sunlight. Thankfully (?) my camera will capture the holo indoors but the quality is just.. well…

External image

Not the best. I had the same problem when trying to take pictures of Glitter Gal 10 to Midnight. Pretty in person, hard to capture on camera.

Full sized bottle previews

Group shot of the currently available full sizes! Mm, glitterbombs.

If anyone runs a nail blog, hit me up! I’m looking to send some samples off for review :) I’m also planning on hosting a giveaway at some point in the near future, but I’m trying to decide exactly how I want to do it. It would have to be US only unfortunately, since shipping nail polish internationally is pretty, uh, not legal. Thoughts?
