Glittah Swatches

My all time very first evah swatch post. :D I am being assimilated into the polish blog collective. He. He.

This is Pure Ice glitter polish. I bought it at Wal Mart for two dollars a bottle. A good deal. :D

From the left, pinkie and ring are Don't You Wish and Spitfire. I applied them over OPI An Affair in Red Square. Both are two coats. From these swatches, I feel that these glitters won't be suitable for on their own use but they will be pretty and fun to go over other colours. Which is just fine with me.

Don't You Wish is a jelly? I guess you would call it? base that has a slight white opalescence and multi coloured glitter. The glitter is a little more sparse and tends to apply a bit unevenly. The base drags a bit, especially on the first coat. I really applied the second coat thick and it went on a bit more smoothly and I got better glitter coverage. This glitter tends to fire gold and blue with some other colours, like a bit of red. It is pretty. :D

Spitfire is a rose and gold with other colours in a clear jelly base. There is no opalescence to the base. This glitter is more dense both in the bottle and on the nail. It applies more evenly and I didn't have any drag, even on the first coat. This one fires more rose and gold with flashes of blue, pink, a little yellow. I like this one a lot. :D

Both of these polishes dried to touch fairly quickly. I applied thick coats and by the time I had shot off a few photographs, both nails were dry to touch, tho still a little dentable for a while.

These pics are with no top coat over the glitters. I am running low on top coat and didn't want to use it up for swatches. :)

This picture was taken outdoors in shade. No flash. Sorry, it is a touch blurry.

These shots were taken in direct sun, no flash. These photos didn't fully capture the dancing scintillation of these glitters in the sunshine. But they come pretty close.
