*sings* Nail polish was my first love, and it will be my last, as long as there will be nail polish… Ahem, corny but true: my first beauty addiction was nail polish. When I was 12 I started to become interested in beauty products for the first time and I was bitten by the nail polish bug. It left me for a little bit, but the past 5 years or so my nail polish addiction has come to renewed heights. I keep thinking: I don’t need any new nail polish. Yet time and time again, I add a bottle or two to my collection. During one of such time, I stumbled upon Dutch webshop The Make Up Spot which sells China Glaze and a Dutch indie nail polish brand called Let It Glitter and I came away with these 4 gorgeous polishes.
Let it glitter & China glaze polishes: Neon Matteness, Christmas Eve, Surreal Appeal, It’s a Trap-eze!
The two Let it glitter polishes are glitter top coats. I bought these for around 8 euros a piece from the brand’s Etsy store. These polishes are handmade indie polishes, meaning they are mixed by hand and one of a kind. They are also free from Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor and contain 11 ml per bottle. I already have a few China Glaze polishes, but it can never hurt to have more. Both polishes are from their Cirque du Soleil range called World’s Away. I simply fell in love with the bright coral and fun confetti look and knew I needed these polishes in my life. China Glaze nail polish is free from Tolueen, Formaldehyde en DBP and contain 14 ml per bottle.
Let it glitter – Neon Matteness
Let it glitter says:
This nail polish is truly a party for your nails! You wont find anything brighter and more cheerful than this! Apply the glitters over a black or a very light color nail polish for a smashing result. Are you crazy about neon colors and bright combinations? Then choose Neon matteness!
And how try this quote is! This is a matte neon colored glitter with different size chunks and shapes of glitter. From hexagons to small yellow dots, it’s all there. Like confetti for your nails. I found the texture a bit thick and the glitter is a bit difficult to spread, but I expected such as the glitters are so big so they tend to overlap one another. Tomorrow I’m posting a NOTD where I used this glitter in a nail look. The swatch above is two coats.
Let it glitter – Christmas eve
Let it glitter says:
Christmas Eve, presents around the Christmas tree, hot chocolate and a Christmas movie that you’ve already seen about 20 times but never gets old, playing on the TV. Make the most enjoyable night of the year complete with this beautiful glitter nail polish. For yourself, but also as a great gift underneath the Christmas tree! This polish contains green and golden glitter, with supercute little white stars!
This nail polish was a lot easier to apply than Neon Matteness. The smaller glitter particles spread easily and the texture is fine. I even managed to swatch the stars you see in the bottle. I have an OPI polish with star shaped glitter and that just won’t show on the nail. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised when I found out the stars in this glitter came out without any problems. Swatch is two coats.
China Glaze – Surreal Appeal
China Glaze Surreal Appeal is a bright, coral pink creme. I’m loving these kinds of color currently and I’m thinking this will look great in spring and summer. This is a thick, creme finish nail polish which went on smoothly and went opaque in two coats. I can’t wear this on my toes and wear open toed shoes!
China Glaze – It’s a Trap-Eze!
China Glaze It’s A Trap-eze is a white base that remains slightly translucent that is packed to the brim with glitter of different shapes and colors. There’s red, orange, yellow, pink, blue, green and silver and the flecks are small and medium sized. The swatch is 2 coats, but to get an all opaque finish I would layer this over a nude or white colored nail polish just to be on the safe side.
