Personally, I’m not a huge fan of glitter. Say what? Yes, it’s true. I do like glitter toppers or glitter in a jelly base on occasion though. This black/white glitter topper caught my attention while hunting for new colors. This is called Black Dress and White Tie (101 Dalmations) by Essence. It’s a mix of black hex glitter, two sizes white hex glitter and fine silver shimmer in a clear base. The formula is great and the glitter spreads nice and even. No fishing or re-placing required. I’ve layered this over a gradient for which I used Off To Miami! and Naughty And Pink!, both also by Essence. The formula of these two is nice and covers in two easy coats.
Ever since the mirror effect polishes are going around I doubted to try them because I was afraid that it would show every ridge and every imperfection on my nails. That was before I spotted the Mirror Effect polishes by LAYLA. I bought Purple Diva and a ridge filler (by Essie) and gave it a go:
SOLD! For some reason it looks like a pink/purple gradient. How cool is that! I used one coat of ridge filler, two coats on my middle finger because that nail has more and deeper ridges. Then I added two coats of Purple Diva. The formula is on the thin side but that didn’t gave me any problems with the application. What I did learned is that it’s better to use the 3-stripes method instead of going over it multiple times. If you do go over it again it will drag and leave bald spots.
A little more precision while applying will result in a lovely eye catching manicure. I’ll definitely pick up the metal chrome polish from this collection soon. I’m sold.
I hope you’re all enjoying a fantastic weekend! Today I’d like to show you two polishes that are perfect for the Holidays:The silver shade is called Frosted Silver and the gold one Frosted Gold(what else? ;)), both by Gosh. These polishes both have a textured finish. They’re slightly rough but not annoyingly gritty. The gold one is a little denser than the silver one, so you could get away with just one coat 🙂 I used two coats of both here with no top coat.
What do you think of these? Have you thought of what polish(es) to wear during the Holidays?
