I bring you a total glitterbomb of a manicure today. Underneath the incredible glitter polish, I have on China Glaze’s No Plain Jane. That one went on really well. I was very impressed with how pigmented it was, two coats, my usual, and it was fully opaque. Then I layered Finger Paints Santa’s Magic over it and WOW! So here’s the pic of the bottle, then my manicure and I have a video for you too. That’s how much I love this manicure:
It’s unlisted, so you have to go to the page and watch it there, but I hope you like it. I had a French manicure on for close to a week, that’s why I didn’t post for so long, and I used stickers because I didn’t own m19, the French tip plate from Konad. But I got so frustrated with how the white leaked under the sticky tabs I went ahead and ordered it. It arrived yesterday and I have to admit, I am not anxious to try it right away because of this current manicure that is like a disco ball, or blinking Christmas tree lights on my nails.
Except for some minor tip wear this manicure is in great shape. I used Seche Vite for the topcoat, and surprisingly this glitterbomb wasn’t gritty. I only like to do one layer of Seche Vite, and then layer on another topcoat later. On Day three I topcoated the manicure again, with NYC Grand Central Station to help extend it. We’ll see if I can make it until Monday.
Here’s a pic of the little Sally’s haul I did, I picked up Glitter All The Way, it’s literally like a Mardi Gras glitter, it’s perfect for that! Then I have Glistening Snow, WOW! It’s like Fairy Dust, but packed with extra glitter, and finally Finger Paints Santa’s magic. I originally passed on the Color Club Flakie, Snow Flakes, but then I had passer’s regret and went back the next day and picked up their last bottle. It’s a great little flakie, and not quite like Flashy, the Finger Paints flakie that I picked up earlier this year. I don’t have any photos of it yet, but trust me it’s pretty.
Well that’s it! Pretty long entry for today, I probably could have split it in two, but I figured it would be better to have one big entry then two short ones. I really am hoping that my silicone fingertip gripper polish removal technique works good for this manicure, I'll be sure to report back in my next entry. Take care and I wish you all happy polishing!
