Elemental Styles E=mc^2

Morning! Today I have another one of my Elemental Styles purchases to show you. This is from the same collection as yellow cake and is equally as awesome! Presenting


E=mc^2

Whitney's description of the polish is,

"E=mc^2 is a light grey based polish that includes various sizes of black and silver hex glitters! This polish goes on opaque in just 2 coats (first 3 photos show 2 coats, last one on a nail wheel shows 3 coats) and is named for the 99th element einsteinium!

Einstein is one my my favourite scientists ever and I wanted to make a cool white/grey based polish with black glitter to honour his crazy hair!"

I think she managed to capture his hair really well! The polish dried with a bit of a pearly finish. There is micro silver and black glitter, medium sized black hex glitter, square silver glitter and large black hex glitter. My swatches are 2 coats with 1 coat of  NYC top coat.

I really like this take on all the black and white glitters that have been popping up everywhere. Since the base is a gray it's something we haven't seen before :) Also this polish wasn't that hungry. I only used the one coat of NYC and it was just slightly gritty to the touch. Using two coats of top coat would solve this problem.

E=mc^2 can be purchased from Elemental Style's Etsy shop. It is $7.50 for a full 15mL bottle or $4.00 for a mini 5mL bottle. All her polishes are 3-free, the ingredients are listed right on the bottle so you know exactly what you are getting. She is currently out of stock with this polish, but has a number of other available that are gorgeous.

Do you like the black and white glitter polish trend? What do you think of this one?

Sincerely Stephanie

    1. I used one coat of NYC top coat on these, but you're right it could use another coat of NYC or just SV. I was only wearing this for an hour or so, so I didn't want to use my precious SV lol

  2. Though I like the look of this polish, I like my nails smooth feeling... this one looks like it has some texture to it.
    But, man, I'm a sucker for these shades of blue!

    1. It's coming up looking so much gritter than it was IRL lol but yes it would probably need 2 coats to be fully smooth.
      I'm such a sucker for blues too, I see anything blue and I instantly want it haha

  4. Oooh, I love it! I did wonder if it was grayish-blue too, and I think that tinge of blue makes it just that little more interesting too.
