Creative musings in bright colors

Glitzy

OMG GLITTER. So much glitter. Little tiny glittery rainbow! This mani was designed around Glitz by Mentality, which is basically a sparkly rainbow in a bottle (but with more teal and red than the other colors). But basically, GLITTER!

I couldn’t convince myself to cover the glittery goodness, so I only did an accent nail with Glitz. Despite being 100% glitter in a clear base, it only took 3 thin coats for full coverage. What’s more, the control was great (think Shimmer polishes)! There was 0 clean up with this polish. The glitter density also makes for great glitter gradients (see my thumb)! I did put glue down as a base coat, because I imagine this would remove like, well, a glitter :-p

The primary colors in Glitz are tiny glitters in shades of red, purple, teal, silver, and maybe some light blue. Somehow, you get flashes of green in there too, although I don’t actually see green glitter! So I accented the whole thing with a fishtail 🙂 It has been a while since I did a nail-braid!

I don’t usually do super-glitzy party nail, but when I do, I can’t imagine I won’t grab for this polish. Easy application and so much colorful glitter! If you want to add Glitz to your stash (and oh god the name is perfect), you can pick her up for $6.50 at the Mentality shop. Happy polishing!
