More glitter madness

Today, I am showing-off another L.A. Girl Glitter Addict. The base is three coats of Hard Candy Sky with two coats of Jostle.
By the way, Hard Candy Sky has a terrible formula - very thin and runny.
Thanks for lookin'!

Glitter Nirvana

My shipment of Glitter Addicts arrived yesterday and it felt like Christmas morning to me! I actually waited a couple hours to build-up the excitement.


L.A. Girl Glitter Addict: l to r
Nostalgic, Flamboyant, Jostle, Animate
Explosion x 2, Uninhibited x 2
Same lineup
Jostle, the one that induced a sharp inhalation upon first seeing it.
Of course, the pic doesn't capture the magic!
OPI Sweetheart base, three coats with one
coat of Uninhibited. Oreos&milk, anyone?

To summarize, these are densely packed glitters in a clear base. The manicure possibilities are endless: black (uninhibited) over red = ladybug, orange (flamboyant) over black = halloween, Aqua (nostalgic) over coral = tropical island, silver (explosion) over black = New Year's Eve, any of them sandwiched between jelly coats = jelly sandwich. Yum! I can't wait to show you what I come up with! Oh yeah, these were $4 each, no shipping fee, purchased from LA Girl website, fast delivery.

NYX Girls + stamping

Sometimes I buy nail polish, not realizing that I have something nearly identical at home. So, I after I applied three layers of NYX Girls Roots, I realized it was pretty much identical to Orly Rage. However, Orly Rage is a one-coater and NYX Girls Roots is very sheer. It might be interesting for layering.

Then I did some random stamping with my different black polishes. As usual, the Konad special polish looks the best. (on pinkie)

Thanks for lookin'!
