I've been having periods of ups and downs lately. Today is a "down" day. I figured what better way to cheer myself up than by swatching glitter polishes? These Jordanas have been in my untrieds for a very long time now, and their time is way overdue!
Carnival has a mix of green, blue, and silver hexes and blue microglitter in a dark blue jelly base. I used 3 coats. It had a good, solid formula and fishing was not necessary. Though it dried smoothly and fast, I still used a topcoat. Along with Sally Hansen Mermaid's Tale, it is widely known as a dupe of Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe.
Celebration is a dense mix of small, tiny, and fine lavender glitter in a clear base. On my index and middle fingers, I used 1 thin coat over Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac. On my ring and pinky fingers, I used 3 thin coats to reach opacity. Again, the formula was good and I had no problems. It dried quickly and a little gritty. I used 2 thin coats of topcoat.
Bronze Fest is a dense mix of yellow gold and orange copper glitter of various sizes in a clear base. I used 1 thin coat over Julep Demi on my index and middle fingers while I used 3 thin ones on my ring and pinky fingers to reach opacity. This little one had the "worst" formula out of the bunch; it was thinner and runny. I had to be more careful while applying it. It dried quickly and a little gritty so I used 1 slightly thick coat of topcoat.
Lunar Lights is a standard iridescent glitter topper and has hexes and microglitter in a clear base. I used 1 coat over Sally Hansen White On on my index and middle fingers and over Sally Hansen Black Out on my ring and pinky fingers. It had the good, solid formula that the first two polishes had. However, dry time was just okay. It didn't dry gritty. No topcoat.
What do you guys think of these glitters? I personally love them and was surprised to find such great quality from cheap polishes! I bought these from Cherry Culture for only $2.99 each! Amazing, right?
See you guys on the other side of the day!
