Here comes holiday glitter in the summer, haha! But I like the sparkles Let’s Shell-ebrate contains, golden and pink glitter in various shapes and sizes.
I layered one coat over Snow Way (two coats) of the same collection, assuming that Let’s Shell-ebrate would go well with Snow Way’s subtle pink iridescent shimmer.
Here are recent photos of beautiful Rose Bower (shown a while ago), which I hope you will enjoy. 🙂 Application was two coats and all photos were taken in bright sunlight. 😎
Recently, I discovered Fated Prince, which had not only spent ages in my stash but also on my desk. But whenever I wanted to apply it, there was some new collection released or I wasn’t in the mood for darker colours or whatever … Finally, here it is. Charcoal grey with olive glitter and holographic finish.
And – this Fated Prince is a beauty. Luckily shown in bright daylight.
However, it’s no less stunning under artificial light.
Getting sparkly again. 🙂 I thought this looks a bit like Christmas, because Holo At Ya Girl contains green, gold and turquoise glitter in a slightly tinted (purple-ish) base.
Two coats applied. The glitter is so dense that it builds up quickly.
Rebel At Heart was a birthday present, given to me by my daughter, who knows that I am into sparkly shades. This has a dark grey base, packed with silver and some golden microglitter.
Two coats without top coat – Rebel At Heart dries a bit matte, but not gritty.
For the following photos, I added top coat, achieving a shinier result.
This is from the current Midnight Masquerade collection and reminds me of Chanel Ombre Essentielle “Swing” eyeshadow, only as nail varnish. They are a perfect match. Meet Me Midnight is a blue glitter polish; the small glitter being so dense that I’m not sure whether it has a blackened base … It’s also a bit iridescent, shifting from medium blue to dark blue, sometimes with a hint of purple.
Two coats shown below. I had slight issues with the stubborn brush, maybe because I have not applied Essence nail colours for quite a while and because of the bristles being cut straight at the tip. But then I got the trick and the second coat was flawless.
It’s not news that I like white on my nails. I just think it’s a classy and chic colour, also a bit extraordinary. I could not resist Sandy Toes & Salty Kisses when I first saw it at the drugstore – but did, in order to come back a couple of days later and after I found it sold out everywhere. Nevertheless, the brach I usually shop still had some leftovers of the collection – and I got it for free, because they had already removed everything from their database. So that was really sweet.
Sandy Toes & Salty Kisses is a true white with silver glitter, described as “sea salt finish” (i.e. gritty and matte).
Two coats turned out to be a bit patchy, so I needed three. What’s really disappointing, the glitter does not show once everything has dried. Not really showing through and hard to make out.
Next week the wheather is going to be brilliant, thus I will pull out my beloved China Glaze neons. It is probably supposed to be the last hot week for this summer. I know that you might be waiting for Dior Skyline, the only one of the autumn polishes I have not worn and shown yet, but I am currently more in the mood for bright and flashy colours …
