Re-review: Revisiting My First Review with Claire's Glitter Topcoat

I've been blogging for a while now - Wednesday will bring me up to three months!  Hot damn have I come a long way.  Chronic cuticle biting, bad camera, you name it.  One of the very first posts I made was for the fabulously sparkly Claire's polish, simply called Glitter Topcoat.  As I've been wanting to try this one out again, I thought it would make the perfect "look Ma, I'm better at blogging now!" post. 

The Glitter Topcoat, as I first reviewed it, still stands as one of the most sparkliest polishes out there.  Micro silver holo glitter in a clear base, it actually forms linear rainbows, albeit not quite as smooth as the traditional holo polishes. Because the glitter is larger, it means it catches the light and throws rainbows a lot more often. What you seen in the pictures below is three coats over Sally Hansen Celeb City.  Application isn't the easiest but it dried reasonably quickly with some drying drops that I've been playing with recently. 







Now, are you ready to see what my nails used to look like?  And this isn't even the worst photo.  I couldn't bear to post the worst one, it turns my stomach.  Ready? Scrooollllll

Ahh! I just want to go back in time and make me drink moisturiser.   And fix the white balance.  And shhh, never mind the fact my photos for today are over exposed.  YOUR FACE IS OVER EXPOSED xoxoxo

The Verdict:  Yes, I love this polish so much I actually reviewed it again cos it deserves to be done properly.  It's so sparkly, so glittery, so full of rainbows <3<3.

  1. This is such a pretty polish!

    Good job that your nails have come so far! :D Mine have definitely improved over the last several months.

    And better to be a little over exposed than under exposed. My face that is. :P

  2. I love that glitter! I looks like the sparkles are a little big, does it leave a rough texture on your nails? Sometimes I find lovely glitter but it's so rough it's hard to deal with.

Review: Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles is Accurately Named

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

31DC2014 Day 6: Violet! Or what happens when you don't know when to stop adding stuff

Dammit this challenge is hard.  Taking proper photos is just the really hard part on top of actually doing the nails cos you have to edit them, fix the colours, and then actually write the post.  Hence the placeholder posts.  I'm totes going to go back and do them proper, I swear.  Ok so Violet.  Not super feeling it, so hence the mature-shirt-for-older-ladies thing I have going here.  Oh well.  It's a thing.  Onward!

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop ... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.
