Ooooo I'm excited today because I have the fruits of late-night eBay binge to show you! I got so carried away the envelope the glitter came in was HEAVY. My boyfriend handed it to me like it was bomb, going to explode glittery all over him. Inside, FIVE new circle glitters, three of which have that amazing finish the OPI I Snow You Love Me has. I FOUND THAT GLITTER GUYS. So of course I had to bung a bunch on my nails. Over an amazing hot pink, no less.
I think I might have to do a whole post on the base colour I used here, the amazing Sephora Formula X Jolt. There's just so many flakie particles in the hot pink base, it's just stunning up close. The blue shimmer in the bottle doesn't translate on the nail the strongest but the matte finish is great. Anyway, after applying three coats of Jolt, I went nuts with my black matte, white pearl and silver dazzler circle glitter. When working with such big pieces, you have to apply a really thick base of your slow drying top coat. You then need to press each piece deep into the top coat - without it spilling over the glitter - so that it sits flush. As usual I started with a column down the middle and worked outwards. Because I pressed the glitter deep, the finish here is amazingly smooth after two coats of Seche Vite. I haven't lost any pieces yet!
The Verdict: I'm kinda loving the colour combo and how the different finishes interact with each other. From a distance it looks like I have studs and rhinestones on my nails and that's always awesome. The fact I FINALLY got circle glitter this big to sit flat is awesome too. So winning all around!
All glitter is from The Glitter Store UK on eBay. I bought all the glitter here myself :)
