Yesterday I went sparkley and put on a couple of coats of an old bottle of Revlon Street Wear polish in Prism. This bottle was almost dried up so I restored it to live with Seche Restore. What an awesome product, I shall never throw out an old polish again.
Prism has large hexagonal holographic glitter in a clear base. I only applied two coats and should have done more, cause there were bare patches, but really, in the sun this was so blinding anyway that I didn't notice.
Here is an up close of the glitter. It was so sparkley that my photos were glare effected and appear rather washed out.
The chunky glitter needs a good layer of top coat, and then its still a little rough. And it must be removed using the foil method.
In other news...I went on a bit of a bender last week purchasing polishes.
I really got stuck into a Nfu Oh stock take sale with Vivid Nails, they were selling their existing stock for $2. Yes - Nfu Oh for $2!!. But to go with that I placed an order for the one remaining Nfu Oh Holo that I don't have '62', and six flakie Nfu Oh polishes, including 51 (finally) - at $18 for the holo and $15 for the flakies, you do the math.
I also spent, shall we say, less than $200 but more than $150 (gasp!) buying the rest of the Artform holographic polishes that I don't have (six), plus their six Revolutionary Range multi chrome polishes, plus four Aluminium Foil polishes, plus three two tone illusion polishes.
Finally, I got off eBay a long time lemming, two bottles of the magnificent Sally Hansen Prism polish in Turquoise Opal, which is a duochrome that flashes from purple to green.
So after that effort, I'm officially on a no buy. I just can't wait for them all to turn up. I told my husband that I wont buy anymore polishes until I have worn and posted about all these polishes, and the 50 or so waiting in my swatch box.
However, I'm also a firm believer that if you want a polish (or collection) really really badly, then you should get it. I'm soooo glad I spent the money last year to buy the full China Glaze OMG collection, as its so difficult to get now. I only got six of the twelve Kaleidoscopes, and wish I had got them all.
Nail polish can seriously be an addiction. Does anyone else have this same problem as me?
