Happy Glitterday!

Here's a few recent glitters I have welcomed into my overloaded drawers.

Sally Hansen In the Spotlight. Well I love strip glitter with a white hot passion, so this find was a source of much shreiking. Which was not appreciated at Walgreen's. I like that this can be used as a glitter topcoat.

China Glaze Doll House is okay. Somehow I don't truly love it, but it certainly grabs attention.

Nicole Let's Get Star-ted is mini rainbow glitter and little purple rainbow stars! You'll have to dab and place the stars where you want them of course. No one who ever read John Bellairs' trio of stories about Louis Barnavelt (The House With a Clock in its Walls, The Figure in the Shadows, and The Letter, the Witch, and the Ring) can look at this polish without thinking of Mrs. Zimmermann. How she would approve.

And last but not least GOSH Holographic is a strange one, because this truly is a glitter polish. The is a clear base with just simply tons of holographic microglitter in it. It takes several coats (this is four) and can be a bit tricky to apply. Let each coat fully dry before you add the next or you may lift off the prior coat.

  4. I have that Sally Hansen, but find the glitter difficult to get on my nail. Is there a trick to it or is it simply layering it on?

  5. Hey there :) I can't believe I never came across your blog until now! I'm loving all the swatches you've been posting! I'm drooling over the Gosh holo!
