Finger Paints Sparkle Top Coat

we had so much fun tonight, our friends had a cookout at their house! i love going to stuff like that, i'm so glad we've made friends here in Monterey :) i ate way too much (but that's kind of my MO, really)... and i really can't be faulted because there were two different potato dishes! i'm pretty sure i could live on just potatoes :D

today i added Finger Paints Sparkle Top Coat to my Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pacific Blue mani... and i love the combo! i didn't want to take off Pacific Blue yet because it's so pretty, so i thought i'd just add a little something. i bought this polish a couple months ago (i think!) and it promptly got stuck in a drawer and forgotten because i never buy this brand. while the name is quite unimaginative, the actual product is beautiful! Sparkle Top Coat is a clear base comprised of bar and tiny hex glitter pieces. happily, while the formula is a little thick, it's easy to work with and there isn't much patting needed to spread the glitter evenly! i would definitely use an actual topcoat to smooth out the roughness of the pieces and bring out all the shinies.

one coat Sparkle Top Coat, one coat Seche Vite over my Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pacific Blue mani.

i just love iridescent glitter, there's something so delicate about it. when i saw that this one had bar glitter in it, it immediately became a must buy for me! Ria :)


i'd love to hear from you guys! let me know if you have any questions or advice :)
