I came thiiiiiiis close to being a normal person today. I was so close to just applying a beautiful, strong red and saying "yes, this is sufficient, I am finished now". NOPE, GLITTER EVERYWHEREREREREREREEEERRRR.
I've had Rimmel Stiletto in my drawer for a while now and oh how I pined for it when I had those horrible stains on my nails. USE BASE COAT EVERY SINGLE TIME LADIES. Even with a white base coat, the polish is just a jelly it just never looked right. Now I'm being a proper person and don't have stains on my nails, I can use this gorgeous red jelly without issue! Three coats is best with this one, just to make sure the finish is perfect. Once done, I couldn't resist adding a little matching glitter. I've had this red holo glitter for a while now and have been trying to find a way to use it, as it's tricky when it's so small. Turns out, with a matching red base, glitter dots are perfect. You don't really notice them until the light hits, and THEN you notice them.
The Verdict: Gotta try more of this - matching the glitter to the polish but letting the polish show through more. Yay sparkly!
