I swear I'm a bit broken. I get home from my weekly Tuesday movie (yay /r/torontoevents!) and have my exciting Dollish Polish package waiting for me. Eleven polishes! Including the gaming collection I've been lusting over for, like, a year! But no, midnight is a silly time to do just a simple glitter swatch, it must be sparklier! And more time consuming!
I guess I could have worse comfort zone than glitter. It's been a reasonable amount of time since I used my gold holo circle glitter so that was the winner. I started out as usual, with two coats of Rimmel Salon Pro Barmy Blue, a gorgeous blurple creme. The good thing about this medium-large sized glitter is that you can use the base colour as the adhesive, it's so quick to do. I painted the third coat, then went to work with my glitter and orange stick. You have to be careful with the circles, they have a tendency to stick together. For my cuticle pieces, I waited til then end, cut a bunch of pieces in half with my sewing scissors and stuck them on with top coat. The edge pieces I just left to overhang, then I trimmed the excess off.
The Verdict: I really like how this came out. Gold and blurple always look amazing together and sometimes it's nice to have a simple glitter placement mani. I'm finding that Lemony Flutter is really helping my nails as well. I have really dry hands and messy cuticles I have a hard time leaving alone. It's even faster to do the other hand: same third coat, just pick up some glitter on your finger and place randomly on your nail. No one will be able to tell, I swear.
