It's a super gorgeous iridescent glitter polish in a clear base. It has large and small hex pieces. There are so many different colors in this, too! Pink, orange, blue, dark blue, aqua...
I wasn't sure what to do with it, though! Should I put it over a lighter color, a darker color, matte, shiny... there were too many choices! I tried a few combinations out on a nail wheel and ultimately decided on this.
Yes, I cut down my nails this weekend, too! :)
I started with a base of China Glaze Liquid Leather. Then I added one coat of Snow Globe (yes, it's this dense in one coat), and finished off the mani with a coat of China Glaze Matte Magic to make the nails matte.
The only thing that I don't love about this manicure is that putting the glitter over black really makes it lose its delicate quality. It's a trade off though, because the bright colors of this glitter really pop over black.
Did you make it this far? Since I don't have many photos for today's post, I'm including a shot of me in my Halloween costume! I was a Day of the Dead senorita. My roommate Dayna of Light and Sugar did my makeup, and I felt so fabulous. She did a great job!
