L'oreal Silver Sparkle

nothing too exciting today, worked Aramis then took Mama Pawlish out to lunch. we've started going to this new bakery restaurant that (quite frankly) i need to stay out of because their pies are AMAZING and i can't resist ordering a slice! today we shared a slice of blueberry lemon custard pie... delicious. so delicious. :)

today's polish is L'oreal Silver Sparkle. i bought this one awhile ago and it's just been moldering away in my un-trieds. i was hoping it would be opaque, but it's definitely a glaze. since i didn't want to be able to see my nail, i used two coats of China Glaze White On White as a base. Silver Sparkle has ultra finely milled iridescent glitter in a clear base, along with larger pieces of iridescent as well as gold glitter. it's not very densely packed, so i used two thick coats to really be able to see it. i'm thinking this polish might look better over black, let me know if you'd like to see that! because of all the coats, a fast dry topcoat is a must... plus it brings out all the sparkles!

two coats White On White, two coats Silver Sparkle, one coat Poshe.

this polish is way prettier in person, a camera just can't capture how it shimmers in the light! Ria :)


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