31 Day Challenge! Day 17- Glitter (Swatchy-Spam)

Hi loves!!

  Today the challenge task is Glitter! I was going to do a "look" for this day but I decided instead to do some swatchy spam because these colors had been sitting on my table for some time and I REALLY wanted to swatch them. I had intended for this post to be huge and full of glitter swatches but the skin on my hands was flaking and I had to stop at Four colors :(:(.
This is the amazing Blue Mosaic by Revlon. This pretty is made up of small light Blue glitter and larger hex glitters in Blue, Green and Silver. The glitter is suspended in a clear base. For the pictures I did Three coats and it was pretty close to full coverage but this would do really well layered as well.

 I'm interested in seeing how this compares to O.P.I's Gone Gonzo.


Starry Pink. A soft, milky light Pink base packed full of small round Silver glitter and larger Silver hex glitters. This is really beautiful and delicate, girly.. Just dreamy. This is also a Three coater but it dries fast. This really applied great.

I need this on my toes soon!

Facets of Fuchsia. Yaaaaay for dupes of expensive polishes!! This one is a Black jelly base packed full of small and larger Hex Purple glitters. This one is also a Three coater and applies really well. I had issues getting it to wrap around the tips of my nails so I think I will be layering this over a Black creme next time I rock it...

Deborah Lippmann, eat your heart out!

And finally is Glamrock from Nina Ultra Pro. This is my one and only Nina and I'm really happy with it. This one is a dark Grey jelly base uber packed of small Silver glitter and larger round Silver glitters. It was pretty opaque and even at Two coats but I added a Third thin coat just to give it a little extra sparkle. Once it's built up it looks Black with Silver bits and it's totally amazing. I can't complain at all. It's a super dense glitter and pretty unique. 

And there you have my glittery spamalamadingdong! Don't forget to check out Sam and Rie's blogs to see their Glitter nails!


Have a sparkly day!!

    The polishes from Revlon, they don't sell that brand in Sweden any more =(
