ellagee polish | Election Day Trio


It’s been a tough week. I won’t lie. The 20th crept closer and closer and felt like Doomsday. But it was not. It was the start of a struggle, but one that we’ll fight for what’s right all throughout. I look forward to seeing what good comes of this, and what we, as a people, can accomplish.

I’m not political, not by any means. I don’t know nearly as much as I should, but I know what I believe in. During the election, I sat watching the polls like a hawk, hoping for a different outcome. A lot of the women (and some awesome men) in the nail groups worked together to ease tensions, and a few makers even put out a few special polishes. While some of us did not see the candidate that we wanted to win elected, I still chose to purchase a few things from a new-to-me brand, ellagee! Laura created a gorgeous trio (and an awesome one-off polish that I HAD to have) inspired by the Obamas and Hillary Clinton attempting to make history. I’m proud to wear these, and they’re absolutely awesome. So, let’s get into it before I continue to babble on randomly.

Thanks Obama; “a ruby red jelly with a red microglitter base, blue and silver microglitter accents, plus translucent gold microflakes and red shimmer.” This one went on in two thin coats and settled wonderfully. It was a tad bit textured with one coat of Seche, so I added one more, but I love how it turned out!


Making History; “a sheer silver with a silver microglitter base, blue and red microglitter accents plus iridescent microflakes and shimmer.” I don’t know if it’s my eyes going bad, or if it’s because the polish sat for a few months (shame on me!), but this one is almost like a very very very pale pink in some lighting. I have no idea if it’ll show up in my photos, but it’s lovely either way. This one was ALMOST a one coater, so nice. Oh, and no texture issues, which makes my weird brain happy.


Madame President; “a royal blue jelly with a blue microglitter base, red and silver microglitter accents, plus iridescent microflakes and blue shimmer. ” Hi, I’d like to swim in this jelly polish. It’s gorgeous and vibrant and awe-inspiring. It went on in two thin coats, but did need a second coat of Seche for my liking. Sure as hell won’t stop me from breaking this back out in times of trouble. Or something like that. I just really really really love this polish, okay? Okay.


Oh, and that one-off polish? Y’all. I love it so. It’s so damn sassy and the perfect thing to welcome our new walking misogynistic dorito into office! This is Hell Toupée; “a bright burnt orange jelly filled with gorgeous micro to small flakes in shades of gold and copper with a bit of rainbow iridescent flakes.” I needed three thin coats, but that’s just my VNL to blame. It went on super smoothly and the flakies in it are absolutely gorgeous. Oh, and ellagee decided to knock $5 off the price so to you can choose to donate the remaining money to a human rights oranization of your choice. God, I love it so.


I’m afraid that Hell Toupée is not publicly available, but you can still snag the Election Day Collection here for $32 USD + shipping.

So, what do y’all think? How are you coping with this odd change? Me? I’m going to go eat my feeling in pizza and paint my nails. Thanks for reading!

    I don’t care for politics to be involved with my hobby of polish but the colors are pretty.
