Glitter is making a comeback


….as if it were ever really gone. Though glitter is evil; GLITTER RULES!

I was on a glitter hiatus until I got my Automatic Nail Polish Remover Machine….
it arrived, and seems to work nicely.  So now to test out one of polish remover’s nemesis:  GLITTER.

…and to try a tape design, as inspired by Audrey (mine still wasn’t nearly as complex or creative as hers… but I’ll get there Smile).

I had an impromptu polish haul at Bed Bath & Beyond. They had everything in their nail section. I was surprised! Nicole by OPI, Essie & Sinful Colors had full out displays with a quite impressive collection selection.  So I picked up 5 bottles of polish, including these 2 Color Club selections…. that I certainly didn’t NEED.  But what’s need got to do with it?!

I wish “Wild & Willing” was more opaque… “Revvolution” is perfect.  Reminds me of OPI’s “My Private Jet” and has a very smooth and covering formulation.  Just nice all around.

I’m still not a fan of tape Sad smile.  I guess I’m just too impatient.  I want to get on with the design.  I almost feel like I could have done just as good a job on the diagonal lines freehand… but that might just be my confidence on swell.  Tape works.  lol.  You just have to waaaaaaiiiiiitttttt for the base color to dry.

    That’s why you use a coat of a quick drying top coat after your base color. I can never find Revvvolution. It’s always out of stock. :(

    • you know, I was going to use a topcoat in between and thought, “that will be sooo many coats”…. but I guess w/ seche vite it wouldn’t have been SO thick. I’m going to try it next time! Thanks!!!
      If I come across Revvvolution again, I’ll definitely pick up one for you!
