ellagee Disney-inspired Trio

Hello Lovelies! I am super excited to show you three beautiful polishes that Laura of ellagee sent my way. The moment I unwrapped them, I could hardly wait to put them on. ^.^ Take a peek!
This is ellagee The Back Side of Water.
The Back Side of Water is a "clear base with silver, blue, turquoise, and aqua hexagon and square glitters".
Here is two coats of The Back Side of Water with one coat FP Black Expressionism undies. I found this polish to be very hungry, so I used a generous coat of Gelous, followed by a topcoat of Seche Vite. Application was a breeze!
 I read Laura's inspiration after I used all of her polishes, and I was stunned when I read her description for The Back Side of Water. Laura said the polish was "meant to capture the appearance of sunlight shining through a waterfall and is named for the classic spiel of the skippers in Disney's Jungle Cruise ride".
Kudos, Laura! Mission Accomplished!
Here is The Back Side of Water matted. ^.^

This is ellagee Some Imagination, Huh!
Some Imagination, Huh! is a "clear base with royal blue, navy blue, and silver holo glitters with gold holo stars and crescent moons".
I used one coat of Some Imagination, Huh! over one coat of A England Avalon, followed by one coat of Seche Vite as topcoat and to help speed the drying process. I used the dab and pull the polish to the edges of my nail technique, which worked very well.
I loooove that this polish is inspired by "Mickey's sorcerer hat and named for his last line in Disney's nighttime show, Fantasmic".
Laura nailed it perfectly!
While I was working on my post, Laura reached out to me regarding a glitter issue with the polish, stating that the base was turning purple due to a glitter bleed. Laura said, "I'm contacting people to see if they want a replacement and (I) will have the new glitter in a week or so."
For the record, I love the purple in the base and I thought it was intentional. @.@ And I firmly believe that any business is built on strong and honest customer service, which Laura clearly demonstrates. 
This is ellagee Make It A Super Stretch.
Make It A Super Stretch is a "clear base with silver, red, black, and white hexagon, square, and rectangle glitters".
For this mani, I used one coat of Make It A Super Stretch over one coat of A England Bridal Veil. I used my favorite topcoat, Seche Vite, and I was done!
I think it's cool that Laura named this polish "for Disney Studio's Rock 'n' Roller Coaster ride". All of her polishes make me want to go to Disneyworld!
After staring at this gorgeous polish, I KNEW I needed to matte this beauty.
What do you think?
Have you tried ellagee yet? This was my first experience with ellagee and I can definitely tell you that this will not be my last! I plan on adding many, many more ellagee to my collection.
