Friday night drinks means party nails! Before heading out to a reddit meetup on Friday night I threw together a very sparkly mani using Maybelline Denim Dash and Milani Gems. Apologies for the less-than-stellar application. Despite the rush, I'm really happy with how this one turned out. Denim Dash was a quick two-coat application and Gems was only one! So much glitter in such short amount of time. I really like the contrast between the glitter and the darker base and so sparkly. Pick up Milani Gems if you can, it's a really great glitter top coat in any of the colours. You can find it cheap at beautyjoint.com, if you're interested.
It's amazing what you can find when you wander around at night. My favourite time to go shopping is ridiculously late and I'm extra happy when it pays off. I've been looking for Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles for a while now at that couldn't be more up my alley if it tried. I finally managed to find it in a Shoppers last night and it really does live up to its name. A Million Sparkles is a predominately blue glitter that has an amazing ability to look like a foil after a couple of coats. Combine that with gold, silver and pink bar glitter and you have a winner. It's seriously so sparkly I got distracted from what I was saying at lunch today. Application is decent but you really need four coats to get completely opaque coverage. That's ok, glitter dries fast. It's a little rough too but nothing Seche Vite can't fix. The Verdict: Yay glitter! If, like me, you like sparklies to the point where it's the biggest tag on y
