So here's what happened to my Grin & Berry it mani. Multicolored hexagon glitter! Big surprise. Ulta's Pinata yada yada (PYY) is a clear based, big and small multicolored hex glitter, it screams PARTY. I think this would be a great mani for New Year's Eve. 2012, can you believe it is almost here? I love the randomness of glitter polishes. You never know where and how the glitter is going to land. So sparkle-ly! The glitter reminds me of champagne bubbles, or maybe confetti.
I used one coat Orly's nail defense base, 2 coats Ulta's Grin & Berry it, one coat China Glaze fastforward topcoat, one coat Ulta's PYY, one coat of CGFF top coat again. Whew.
I notice when I put a top coat on before glitter I have an easier time removing glitter polishes. I think this mani is going to outlast me, because I'm still wearing it and it has been 5 days with just a little tip wear, no chips or scratches! With 2 coats of topcoat my nails are hard! Plus my thumb nail broke last week so I had to file down all my nails to even them out. :( So, I noticed my manis last longer when my nails are shorter.
