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.

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

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.

Neon Color Club Watermarbling with Gold Unicorns!

Oh hi!  Did you have a good holiday/break time thing?  I did.  I did lots of sleeping which, when it's cold, is just about my favourite thing.  So cozy, with so much cat hugging time cos she's cold too.  I've been doing some nails but I've just not been super feeling many of them.  My real nails have having a bit of a rough time with the weather and then using acrylics doesn't help in the long term.  Anyway, time for some eye-meltingly bright neon watermarbling!  With gold unicorns!  Cos they go with everything!  Woo!
