Sparkles by Julie, as the name says: sparkles in a bottle created by Julie. Here’s one of her many gorgeous creations called Graffiti. It’s a clear base packed with shredded glitters in red, yellow and blue! And there are also black hexes and bars in the mix. This topper creates a graffiti look when layered over a (light) base.What an amazing effect ha? I used one coat of Graffiti over a white base (Purity by Zoya) plus one coat of Seche Vite. This polish applies best by using the dabbing technique. The formula is great! Thumbs up for that!
See how awesome it looks with a matte top coat:
Julie’s hand blended creations are 3 free, meaning it does not contain; Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde Resin, or Toluene!
Do you like this polish as much as I do? Grab yours at Julie’s Etsy shop for $4.00 (mini-size) or $8.00 for a full-size bottle (15 ml).

I’d like to show you another polish that Jamie at In The Gray Areas sent me 😀 Isn’t she the sweetest?!
Toxic Avenger by Dollish Polish is really hard to describe. It’s brown but also a bit wine red with holographic glitters. In natural light it’s a bit taupe while under direct light it’s more like gasoline and you can see the holographic glitters.
To capture the holo I’ve made a picture under direct light:
Here’s a picture taken in natural light:
It’s a bit sheer, so I’ve used three coats to get full opacity. I like it. You?
Thanks to Jamie at In The Gray Areas I now own two indie polishes by Nerd Lacquer called Largo and All of Time and Space.
First up, Largo: blue hexagon glitters and silver, gold and blue glitter all swimming in a gray/greenish base. This needed two coats to get opacity.And below you see All of Time and Space, a mint green shimmery base filled with silver and purple glitter and hexagon glitter. I’ve used two coats. A little bit of research has teached me that this polish is sold out. Such a shame!
