Monster Mixers & Elixirs King's Cup Review & Swatches

Sadly, this will be my last post until September 10th. I do have some marvelous guest bloggers that will be helping me out for a few days and past those I have some scheduled posts to keep everyone entertained. :) 
I wanted to make sure I finished off my Monster Mixers & Elixirs blogger samples before signing off. ;) Since I did Luna Lake yesterday, today's post will feature King's Cup! 

Monster Mixers & Elixirs King's Cup has 2 sizes of gold holographic glitter in a clear base. 
I stared all off with 3 coats of  Sinful Colors Slate, I previously swatched this here and here.  My thumb is 1 coat of King's Cup over Slate and my other fingers, except for my ring finger, are 1 coat of King's Cup dabbed on my tips and downward in a gradient manner. My ring finger is 2 coats of King's Cup over bare nail. I didn't use a base and and used Seche Vite as my top coat. 
King's Cup has a lot more glitter than Luna Lake! I could have gotten away with 1 coat on my ring finger but, decided to go with 2 coats just because. I know my gradient is not the best on this manicure but, I was really surprised how dense the glitter was and didn't expect it. ;)
The formula on this polish was even more amazing than Luna Lake. No problem whatsoever "fishing" for glitter. Actually, I had to try not to get a lot of glitter on the brush to do a gradient. :P I'm sure my gradient would have turned out nicer had I used a sponge. Yet again, another glitter polish lover's dream; no "fishing", dried quickly and I didn't even shake the bottle before applying. The color is fantastic and is super sparkly even in low light.
