Nail Pattern Boldness- Bigger on the Inside and Glitter Food

 Hello lovelies! Today is my two year anniversary with my amazing fiance, Jake. I've been sick at home with a stomach bug for almost a whole week and wasn't able to really plan anything for us. But we're hoping to do something nice this weekend. What should we do? More importantly, what should I wear on my nails?!

Ok today I have some polishes from Nail Pattern Boldness for you. Here are some swatches of Bigger on the Inside, a dark royal blue jelly filled with sparkly silver microglitter. I used two coats plus one coat of Glitter Food and one coat of HK Girl top coat.




Now I wanted to post a quick review of my experience trying out Glitter Food (Fix a Flat). This product is a dual-purpose top coat that was created by Nail Pattern Boldness to use as a way to smooth rough glitters under a topcoat and it also works to sort of "re-inflate" your glitter polishes that have gone flat. Got any glitter polishes where the glitter just continues to fall in the bottle? Add some Glitter Food and watch your glitter rise! Well not really, but shake it up and it will AND it'll stay that way. Here's a before and after for you.

I was nervous the cloudy topcoat would dull my polish but it didn't at all!

These two polishes came out of my Helmer like this. They were the most "sunken" polishes I found

I added a dose of Glitter Food, gave both a good shake and waited 48 hours. Not too shabby!



Pros- I LOVE Bigger on the Inside. Such a gorgeous bright blue that's SO sparkly. What's not to love?
Cons- I thought Glitter food didn't do much for me as far as smoothing glitter as a topcoat. I've always used Gelous for this and I think they are pretty similar but I still like Gelous better. If you don't have Gelous already, this is a great alternative.
Overall- Using Glitter Food to bring some sunken glitters back to life is a pretty genius idea. I don't have a ton of use for it since I don't have THAT much glitter, but I know there are a lot of you out there with polish collections filled with sad sunken glitters. You need to get some hands on Glitter Food! It's sold out right now but keep checking back!

You can find purchase Nail Pattern Boldness from their etsy page or Llarowe for $9 a bottle. Keep up with new collections and restocks by following the blog and Facebook pages.

  3. I should really try that. Sometimes a bottle comes unscrewed magically by itself
