Jurassic Park was one of those movies I thought I would hate going into but it turned out that I genuinely enjoyed them – so much so I went out and purchased the box which included the first 3 movies.
Well, slap me twice and call me Susie! Inspired by Jurassic Park, the new Velocirapture Collection from Alter Ego, is just perfect! The collection name was suggested by a Facebook fan group member and each polish name is a direct quote from the movie and the color created from a scene to correspond with the name.
**All swatches are done using Commitment Issue Peel-off Base Coat by Vapid, Top Coat (glossy, QDTC) by Glisten & Glow and Matte Topcoat by Sassy Sauce Polish. Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**

Overall Thoughts – Alter Ego – Velocirapture Collection
Overall: I’m not sure if it’s the colors or the finish of the collection, but the color palette is very neutral and has an antique feel. I don’t mean in an old and outdated sorta way, but rather vintage and classic. They are a great balance to all the bright colors we are accustomed to for the spring/summer. Formula / Application: no streaking noted, great consistency and easy to apply.no issues to report. The Queen’s Choice: Hold Onto Your Butts
