I've been pretty good lately in starting to tone down the amount of polishes I buy. Yes, I do realise how non-committal that sentence was but whatcha gunna do. This blog is the best excuse to just buy all the things! Which lead me to Shoppers Drug Mart on Sunday after a long brunch. There, sitting in amongst all the other usual Nicole by OPI's, was the most spectacular red I think I've ever seen, trying to be all like "yeah, I was totally here all the other times you were here". Sensational Scarlet just had to be had.
Anyway, on to the application. I was surprised at how well this one applied given the amount of glitter sitting inside. What you see in the pictures below is three coats on its own with good coverage. Looking at this more closely, it's amazing just how much glitter is in here. Hex holo glitter in two different sizes and red glitter, all suspended in a scarlet jelly. I've always had a thing for reds and this one wouldn't have been better if you'd cut up the original ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz and stuck it on your nails. So sparkly too.
What you see on the bottle in the background is more accurate of just how sparkly this one is. Glitter's always hard to capture. Also, check out the picture before - you're going to want to see the close-up - see what a glitter bomb this is?
The Verdict: BUY IT BUY IT BUY IT if you've ever been mesmerised by Dorothy's ruby slippers. This is the closest I've ever come and I love it!
