I was just leisurely strolling around the supermarket when I came across this, I thought it looked so pretty in the bottle and I just had to get it. I feel like glitter nail polish is like the marmite of the nail polish world, it very much divides opinion and I for one, love glitter. The more speckles the better.
Though I am always apprehensive when it comes to the formula as there are a lot of duds out there when it comes to getting a full coverage and even dispersing of particles on the nail. I scoff at the pallid top coats, I’m very much ‘go hard or go home’ when it comes to this. I take my glitter very seriously.
I am wearing two coats in the photo but one is more than enough if you prefer a more subtle look and you’ll be able to see a little bit of your nail but the colour of the nail polish makes it hardly noticeable. This applies like a dream I tell ya, it’s so easy to use and if you’re not great at painting your nails like myself this really is a fuss free formula. If I had a negative point about this polish it would be that, when it dries the texture of the polish is a little bit gritty however this is surprisingly easy to take off. I have to say this is becoming one of my fave polishes based on formula alone, I would love to see Maybelline release this in more colours! (if they haven’t already I only saw two on display.)
I have to say I did pick this up after reading a load of posts on going for a more subtle look for Valentine’s day. Pastel pinks seemed to be in favour and then I realised its not a colour I have in my shoe box full of polishes so I went and gone get it. Also Valentine’s related, if you haven’t seen the Funny Valentine’s on iPlayer I recommend it, well, you should see this one. Which in my opinion is the funniest one.
Anyway, are you a fan of glitter nail polishes? Let me know your faves!
