Anyone who's read a few posts around these here parts will know I'm something of a fan of matte glitter. There's just something about the effect that is very visually pleasing to me. When I find one beach-themed, which makes me yearn for the time I just spent in tropical northern Australia, you have a nostalgia-filled winner!
To start, two coats of Sally Hansen Navy Baby, the ever reliable navy base colour. I've used this one so many times, it's just such a good alternative to black. Next, two coats of Pretty & Polished Beach Bum. This polish is so pretty, a mix of matte blue glitter and a ton of different sparkly blue too. Application was really good, despite me only managing to get two of the larger hex pieces out of the bottle. The mix of the matte and shiny glitter just makes the whole thing more interesting. Combined with the navy base, it reminds me of the ocean in the moonlight.
The Verdict: I think this might just be my favourite matte glitter, even over Floam. The addition of the shiny glitter means you get the texture of the matte with the brain-pleasing sparkliness. Aww yeah.
That's AWESOME! I'm pretty sure I snagged this when her shop opened last time and now, I can't wait to try it out!ReplyDelete
This is very beautiful, especially over the black! :D It really brings out the light blue. ^-^ReplyDelete
What a fantastic polish! You're right--the combination of matte and shining, plus the different sizes of glitter, give it so much depth and texture!ReplyDelete
