OPI Show It and Glow It!

A quickie post before I'm off to work! My dear, darling brother assisted me in getting an order from Transdesign without it costing me ridiculous amounts of money. *love him to bits*

OPI Show It and Glow It!, morning sun

This was actually from last week, I just haven't had time to edit pictures. Two coats of Show It and Glow It! over OPI Red My Fortune Cookie (I couldn't be bothered to take it off in my excitement to try out the new glitter baby, lol). Application was decent (hey, it's a glitter) giving sufficient coverage in two coats. If I didn't have a base color underneath, I think I would have used three coats.

How did I like it? Outdoors Show It and Glow It! is wonderfully sparkly. Indoors, I wasn't as pleased. The different colors of glitter didn't seem to work as well together and the sparkle was much diminished. However I have to add I'm basing this on where I spent most of my time while I was wearing Show It and Glow It!, which was at work under blah-blah fluorescent lights. Indoors at home had a nice subtle shimmer. So your mileage may vary. I also think a different base color (or none) will affect the overall result. The red creme probably wasn't providing the proper contrast. I will definitely be giving Show It and Glow It! another try. (After I try my other new polishes, of course!)

Next time: water marbling, yay!
