You Asked For It - Glitter Spam

Thursday, April 12, 2012
The results of the last poll are in! It was a tie, folks wanted to see glitter and matte. The neat thing about writing this blog is that I get to have the final say, so I picked glitter. Don't worry, you'll see matte spam real soon! 
I took the following pictures in many different lighting scenarios, to best capture the glitter. 

Hard Candy Break Up over Sally Hansen Thinking of Blue (dark blue creme). I love how these hex glitter particles change color. There's also incredibly fine silver glitter mixed in. I would have liked it more if it wasn't there, to be honest. 

Color Club Untamed Luxury. A teal that leans more green base, with glitter that is actually silvery and holographic, but looks teal because of the jelly base. Top coat hungry!

Sally Hansen Night Lights. Fine holographic glitter suspended in a sheer charcoal base. By itself, the glitter looks sort of murky in the charcoal base, but layered over a black creme (as shown here) it really pops.

Rimmel Eccentricity over American Apparel Imperial Purple

Rimmel Eccentricity over Sally Hansen Sequin Scandal

Rimmel Eccentricity. Possibly my favorite glitter ever. So great, it gets two pictures. This polish was LE from a long time ago, and I only recently acquired it from eBay. I'm so glad I did! It's a mix of fine copper and small hex holographic glitter. The combination is absolutely amazing! It's truly a crime that a polish like this could be LE. 

Nearly every brand has one. A red jelly base, with matching red fine glitter. This is Sally Hansen Red Carpet. 

L.A. Girl Rockstar Supernova. This was my first hairy bar glitter! Holographic, in a sheer charcoal base. Again, here I've worn it over black. 

Revlon Facets of Fuchsia. One of my favorite purchases from 2011. I was so glad when Revlon came out with a passable dupe for Deborah Lippman's Bad Romance. Here, I've worn one coat over black creme. 

Color Club Red Velvet. Another favorite. So simple, red glitter in a black base, but somehow it never gets old for me. Vampy and elegant. 

I hope you've enjoyed this little edition of spam! Trust me, I've got plenty more glitters to show you... eventually. In the mean time, why don't you vote for the next edition of nail polish spam? Vote in the poll located on the upper left hand corner of the page!
