A while ago, when talking to the lovely Michelle of Things I Love At The Moment about a coming up Jindie Nails restock, Michelle said I need to get me Water 4 Elephants. I looked at it and figured what the hell. I like grey, let's see what the fuss is all about. So I went and got me this polish. What can I say... The lady sure knows what she's saying!
Water 4 Elephants is a gorgeous grey crelly (creme + jelly) with blue and green glitter of different sizes and shapes. Jen, the maker of Jindie Nails Polishes do post a warning on this polish, saying that it has some green metallic squares that may have reflective curling. Well, I don't know what the term was exactly referring to, but I can tell you I saw no curling in this polish! Those green and blue glitters add so much life and sprinkles to this polish. Application was easy and completely issue-less. Three coats bring this polish to full opacity but I decided to layer just one coat of Water 4 Elephants over - how original - China Glaze Elephant Walk and I love it. Since I never read the book nor did I see the movie, all I think of when staring at my nails is my amazing trip to Sri-Lanka a couple of years ago.
The swatches below show one coat of Water 4 Elephants over Elephant Walk on all nails but the ring. On the ring you see three coats of Water 4 Elephants by itself. All nails have one coat of Seche Vite Top Coat.

Of course, I couldn't just let the swatch be so I applied some Elephant Walk to my ring nail and I stamped on it some elephants using Kleancolor Metallic Aqua and DRK-C plate.
So what do you think? Personally i'm loving this polish!
