Faceted Glitter Gradient
Howdy everyone! Tomorrow is Election Day here in the U.S. and you'd think I might do a themed manicure to celebrate that fact. I didn't. I hit Walgreen's the other day and grabbed 5 new polishes and not one of them was red, white or presidential blue, so I did something completely unrelated. That being said, if you're registered, please go vote! You've got no right to complain about who wins if you don't!
All of the polishes I picked up were glitters and most were somehow holiday related. So let's get the party started!
....more after the jump....
Whenever I'm not sure what to do with a glitter, I do a gradient. It's easy and it looks pretty neat, so you really can't go wrong. For this mani, I started with 2 coats of Peachy Keen by China Glaze, a pretty peachy-salmon creme. On top of that, I layered Faceted by SinfulColors, doing a couple of extra coats at the tips of my nails to create a gradient. Faceted has tons of dark blue to purple micro-glitter and holographic bar glitter and is part of SinfulColors Holiday Shimmers collection.
Overall, I think the collection is pretty, although I'm still not sure I should be buying their products considering their major fail earlier this year. However, I saw Faceted on the shelf and just knew I had to have it. It is super sparkly although the coverage isn't as opaque as I hoped it would be. It's a nice addition to my collection and, for $1.99, it's hard to pass up!
Thanks so much for reading!
