"You had my picture on your wall...Right next to Gary Glitter" AC/DC, Little Lover
Orly came out with a line of chunky glitters recently, touting them to be both top coats or if layered to stand on their own. Whoa. There are 22 of them! I think I have 5. The ones available at my local Sally. Interesting! I'll be keeping an eye on the discount sites for more of these because they really are spectacular, but at $10 a piece....can't hurt to be a bit frugal because I won't wear them often.
I did Sashay My Way over Rescue Beauty Lounge's Poppy. Not because I was tired of Poppy or thought it needed a little something. I quite simply got bored. I knew I had another day before my manicure, which I felt gave me a little freedom to do something cray-cray. And it was!
Wish I'd had Rocket's Red Glare...That would have been great. But I did Sashay and it was...GAUDY! And I mean that in the most glitter loving way.
Discalimer: I had to tone down the exposure on every one of these swatches. I don't know why I had such a bad time that night. Every single picture was over-exposed and bleached out. I adjusted these to try to match what I know would be close to the actual color of Poppy. That seemed to be the most feasible thing to do. I also adjusted the sharpness on two of these. I try to tell you guys so you aren't mislead.
Take a look at this baby:
I find with chunky glitters that you can attempt to brush them on in a traditional way but you're going to get annoyed. Just dab them on, going back to the bottle frequently.
Until it came time to take it off! This is why you don't often catch me in glitters like this:
What do you think? Picking these up?
