Day 7 of the Sparkle-thon! Nubar Sky Sparkle

Well, everyone, turns out that I've found the most annoying in the bunch. Today, we have Sky Sparkle. It's a gorgeous color, but was a pain to apply because it was so much less dense than the others. I had to do 4 coats and with all of that clear base mixed in, it made for very thick and uneven nails. I didn't even leave it on very long because it seemed like that many coats would never dry. Next time, I will be trying it over a matching base color instead of trying to build up the opacity in glitter alone.


 You can see the funky shape of my middle nail from too many coats of polish.

Do any of you have this color and have the same problem? Thanks for reading!

  2. This is pretty. I give you props for doing all of these glitters, I'd be way too annoyed to take it all off!!

  3. @Fingers, thanks. just a pain in the butt :/

    @Emily, I use one of the scrubby acetone tubs from Target to take off all of my glitters. Super easy!

  5. @Heidi, yes you should! I didn't have to do that many coats with my couple of FP glitters so yours may be fine.
