What I liked:
– pretty fuchsia glitters make nails sparkle when hit by light
– nice texture, easy to apply
– glitters stick well to the nails even without a top coat
– the packaging
What I didn’t like:
– you need to swirl the brush in the bottle well to pick up the chunkier glitters
Does applying glitters on top of your nail polish count as nail art? Well, I hope so, cos that’s the only way I know how to decorate my nails. My hands are too unsteady to do anything else! 😉
One of my favourite glittery nail polishes is Jordana Glitters in Magenta Magic, sent me by my friend Annabella (thanks hun!). The cute bottle contains both tiny and chunkier magenta and fuchsia glitters in a clear base. The glitters look quite dark and a bit flat on the nails, until the lights hit them. Then, they become brighter and sparkle beautifully. I wish my camera had been able to capture the effect, but it is absolutely stunning, trust me!
Because the base is clear, I prefer to apply Magenta Magic on top of other nail polishes, to give them that sparkling touch. In the swatch above, I’m using Layla Ceramic Effect n.21, a pretty Barbie pink, and no top coat. I find the glitters stick well to the nails for days even without one.
Instead, it takes some effort, at least at the beginning, to dispense the chunkier glitters evenly on the nails. And you need to swirl the brush well in the tube, if you want it to pick those up too. If you don’t, only the tiniest glitters, and the odd chunkier one, will end up on your nails. But maybe you prefer that effect?
