Dollish Polish Expecto Patronum

Hi there! Hope you're having a great week so far! :-)

Today I've got a really special polish to share with you. Dollish Polish's Expecto Patronum is a white jelly filled with sparkly and reflective teal small-sized round and medium-sized hexagon glitters.






Being a huge Harry Potter fan myself, the name of this polish is what first attracted my attention. But once I saw what the polish actually looked like, I knew I had to get my paws on it. :-) Like its namesake, the polish is beautiful in a uplifting and ethereal way. It's delicate and lovely, not overpowering while still being interesting. It's just stunning, really! Even though I have a large collection and show a lot of polishes on this blog, it's always a joy when I get share with you a personal favorite mine. :-)

Expecto Patronum has a fantastic formula. There's plenty of glitters, so it's easy to apply evenly and achieve a uniform glitter distribution. Two coats ended up being all I need for great glitter density and overall coverage, and it's what you see in the swatches. As the polish dries down, you'll see that the white jelly becomes more mellow and translucent, so you may want to do an additional third coat if you like it more white.

You can find Expecto Patronum on Dollish Polish's Big Cartel site for $10 for the full-sized bottle of 0.5 fl oz and $5 for the mini-sized bottle of 0.3 fl oz.

  2. I'm a Potterhead myself (I recently made a franken collection with polishes inspired and named after HP) so I really love this. Both for the lovely colour and glitter as well as the name.

    1. Thanks Liesl, I'm glad you like it! Hmm... I'm not exactly sure, but I think it's sometime within the last few months. I remember Dollish Polish going through a few bottle changes, and the square bottle is the latest. :)

  16. Hi Yun, another stunner and I love milky white glitters best when they are transluscent - they have a nearly etheral feel and the glitter seems to float <3
