I really have no idea what possessed me to make this mani. I wanted to use my new red glitter jelly, Voltage by Sephora X. What ended up happening was a bit…odd.
Voltage by Sephora X is a collection of small and medium golden holo hex glitters suspended in a light red jelly. Based on the sample I used on my swatching stick, this polish would take wayyyy too many coats to be opaque on its own, so this is three coats over one coat of a red creme. I also added top coat, although this lies flat rather nicely.
Unlike the blue of the collection, Voltage is not opaque, and I had to blob the polish on rather thick to get this glitter load. I think it would work fine as a sparse glitter topper, but it is certainly not as dense (or, honestly, pretty) as Outburst. Oh well!
I ended up adding wavy patterns from Bundle Monster plates 205 and 210. The intent was to use a dark red polish…but my dark red is a jelly (oops) and spilled all over my skirt (akkkk!) and so was placed back on its shelf in disgust. I grabbed a gold instead, but I really wish I had gone for a black! This mani has too much color :-p
