Pros- The little blue hexes in this polish catch the light in a way to make this polish twinkle a little on your nails. I like glitters that still sparkle even though they are in a creamy base.
Cons- The finish wasn't shiny and smooth on its own. Nothing a little Gelous and fast dry top coat can't fix!
Overall- I wore this polish to work and my co-worker said they looked like dinosaur eggs. In a good way. I like that.
Here is Pretty in Pastel- a pastel glitter mix in a shimmering nude base. This polish is LOADED with pastel glitter. I've never used a pastel glitter before so it was interesting to see. The shimmery base in a little sheer so I layered one coat of Pretty in Pastel over two coats of Essie- To Buy or Not To Buy. I didn't get any pictures of the underwear on its own though. Sorry :(
Some of the polishes in the Serum No. 5 shop include a little application tip in the description, "Tip- To easily apply the glitter polish, give the brush a little swirl in the polish and gently pull the brush out." Here's what happened then I used this tip.
|See? LOADED with glitter!|
Pros- The pastel glitter is definitely something new for me and the shimmery base adds that extra special oomph to this polish.
Cons- I had to be very careful with application and sort of dab the glitters into place to get coverage and not have the glitters falling off the sides of my nails at the same time. Definitely needed Gelous and HK Girl to get this smooth and shiny.
Overall- This polish isn't a favorite for me, only because I like glitters to either be sparkly or not there at all. But as you can see, it's pretty cool looking. It kind of reminds me of cupcakes and sprinkles.
