31 Day Challenge - Day 9: Rainbow

Darn, and I was doing so well with posting one every single day! Oh well, hopefully this one was worth the wait. I chose to feature a rainbow confetti glitter for today's challenge, and this one is gorgeous.

Nancy's Birthday from Whimsical Ideas by Pam is a multicoloured glitter of varying sizes in a cool pastel pink jelly base. There's silver, hot pink, sky blue, kelly green, orange, and sunny yellow glitters in there. This nail polish is basically a party on your fingertips! Application is a breeze, with a tone of glitter in every stroke. You don't need to do some strange dabbing technique for the glitter to be placed evenly over the entire nail, so that's pretty terrific. To top that off, the amount of glitter on my nails is achieved with only two coats! The base colour is still slightly sheer, with a hint of visible nail line showing through, which I personal like. If you want it completely opaque, just add a third coat.

With such large, chunky glitters, you would think that the surface of this polish when dried would be extremely bumpy and uneven. Well compared to some others with this amount of glitter, that is not so. The glitters actually do a good job of laying flat on the surface of the nail minimizing the uneven texture. A thin layer of Essie - Good To Go top coat and the surface is smooth like glass. I think this would be a great polish for many skin tones, because although the base colour leans slightly cooler toned, it's still a very flattering colour on warm skin-toned gals like myself.
