Playing with Glitter Polishes

This summer, after taking photos of #360 Volcanic, a black based polish with orange glitter, I decided to play around with a few of the polishes I’d bought around the same time. I just layered a couple coats over Volcanic to see what they would look like and I was very surprised by the results.

All photos show polishes in the same order, going clockwise from thumb: Wet ‘n’ Wild, Wet ‘n’ Wild Teal of Fortune, Wet ‘n’ Wild Ocean Grotto, Pure Ice Oh Baby and Pure Ice Rio.

All have incredible sparkle and all three Wet ‘n’ Wilds come across with an almost metallic appearance when layered this way but it is the two Pure Ice that capture my attention. They are duochromes. This is most obvious in the difference between the sunlight shots and the lamp lighted shots.

  1. Those pure ice polishes are sleepers aren't they?! I played with some last night and was really pleased with what they turned out to be!

  2. Some of them certainly are. I have aquired extras to franken with.
