Alter Ego Olympic Winner and Olympic Contender, Swatches and Review

Press Sample

Alter Ego has been making polishes for years! Cynthia has been creating polishes and soaps and she recently reformulated all of her polishes! Today, I'm sharing two polishes that have been reformulated. What's even better is that Alter Ego is having a Cyber Monday sale for 40% off, so you don't want to miss this!

I have two holographic and glittery polishes today! Both are nice and smooth to the touch!

Alter Ego Olympic Contender: 2-3 coats. The polish itself is opaque on the nail bed in 2 coats, but I dabbed a bit on my tips so my nails were covered. This polish is a mix of green, red, blue, and lime green in a slightly tinted green base. It's really festive for the holidays but totally wearable all year long. It's so sparkly too! Also, I rushed to get the sun so I didn't even top coat it! The glitter was actually super smooth to the touch!

I then added a satin top coat. Pure love!

Alter Ego Olympic Winner: 2-3 coats plus top coat. I had a few spots that required an extra coat. I love this color! It's a pale gold/beige holo polish. It's not as chunky microglitter as Contender. This one is very smooth and goes on easily. I love the sparkly neutral. That's also a color I reach for.

Of course, I had to see how the polishes look together. Olympic Contender is the perfect formula for a quick gradient! Since it isn't thick (but not runny), it's easy to dab at the tips. I rather love this look!
