Glitter Swatches

Since I received my Crackles a couple days ago, I've been trying to swatch them. Crackle swatching is time consuming! It's not like a normal polish I can paint on and wait until it's dry enough to photograph. Crackles need to be painted over dry polish. I am not that patient so I've just been doing a crackle everyday over my mani. I swear I'll have swatches up soon!
Until then I have some random glitter polishes to show you.

Petites Universe, Sinful Colors Queen Of Beauty, OPI Simmer & Shimmer, and Funky Fingers Icicle Lights.

This is 3 coats of Petites Universe.

Petites Universe is a gold glitter polish that has a metallic finish.

I wasn't a big fan of these polish. It was very thick but sheer at the same time. I had issues with application.

You can't see it here, but there are actually little bits of glitter in this polish

This is 3 coats of Sinful Colors Queen of Beauty.

Queen of Beauty is a thick silver glitter polish. 

I'm not a fan of Sinful Colors polishes on their own. They tend to have really wonky formulas. A lot of their polishes are too sheer or too thick for me work with.

This is the glitter I used in my Starry Starry Franken. I think I'm going to stick to using this glitter just for frankens.

This is 3 coats of OPI Simmer And Shimmer.

Simmer And Shimmer is a glitter polish that contains blue, silver, yellow, and pink glitter. At least that's what I can see. It's pretty opaque.

And this is how one ends up with the glitter herpes.

How awesome does it look here?

This is 3 coats of Funky Fingers Icicle Lights.

Icicle Lights is a multi colored glitter polish that looks purple. It's supposed to be a dupe for OPI Mad As A Hatter. I don't have MAAH, so I can't say for sure.

These polishes are available at some stores called "5Below". Theres no stores like that by me, so I bought this bad boy on eBay.

This polish was pretty opaque as well.

I'm pretty tired so I'm off to take a nap!

  2. I love Icicle Lights :) Glitter herpes is just awful, I have a extra strong nail polish remover that does remove everything, but I think it is a bit heavy for using everyday... If you find a suitable solution, please let us now!

  4. Great swatches! I wish I could get my hands on Icicle Lights, but even on Ebay it's a killer to get to Denmark (29$ for shipping?! That's more expensive than MAAH, LOL).
